The Science Of AquaFacial

In your search for ways to achieve vibrant, healthy skin, finding a treatment that effectively addresses multiple concerns all at once is difficult. Those grappling with various skin issues from persistent acne to visible signs of ageing, often seek a solution that delivers noticeable results without aggravation. 

Introducing AquaFacial, a comprehensive treatment designed to address these concerns with precision and care. We dive deeper into this technique, its benefits, what to expect, and how it resolves the most common skin conditions. Let’s get started.

What Is AquaFacial?

Also known as hydra dermabrasion, AquaFacial is a non-invasive, combination treatment that includes cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection all in one.

It uses a unique, spiral suction tip delivery system called Vortex-Fusion that exfoliates and cleanses while delivering hydrating serums and antioxidants deep into the skin.

Benefits Of AquaFacials

AquaFacial treatments offer several benefits, addressing specific skin concerns with tailored serums. Here’s how AquaFacial can transform your skin:

For Rosacea

Rosacea is a condition that causes redness and blood vessels to become visible on the skin. AquaFacial calms the inflammation and reduces redness without the harshness of a more invasive procedure.

The AquaFacial’s cooling and hydrating steps also reinforce the skin’s barrier and offer relief from rosacea symptoms.

For Blackheads

The AquaFacial’s extraction phase is effective at clearing blackheads. The vortex suction technology effortlessly removes dirt, oil, and dead skin cells that clog pores and lead to blackheads. 

Following this, the infusion of nourishing serums helps to minimise the appearance of pores and prevent future blackheads, leaving the skin clear and refreshed.

For Acne

AquaFacial addresses acne concerns by deeply cleansing the pores and exfoliating the skin to remove acne-causing impurities like excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria (Propionibacterium acnes).

The gentle acid peel and extractions clear existing breakouts without causing skin irritation. Additionally, the serums used in AquaFacial are antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory, preventing new pimples from forming.

For Anti-Ageing

AquaFacial’s ability to stimulate collagen production through exfoliation and infusion makes it an effective anti-ageing treatment. 

It promotes the skin’s regenerative processes and subsequently reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and other common signs of ageing. The antioxidant-rich serums further protect the skin from environmental damage, making the skin firmer, plumper and more youthful.

What To Expect During An AquaFacial Procedure

Here’s a brief overview of an AquaFacial procedure. Understand that while the treatment’s core steps are consistent, the serums and even some additional enhancements like LED Light Therapy can differ, depending on the clinic:

  1. Cleansing and Exfoliation: Your Doctor will gently cleanse your skin to remove surface debris, followed by exfoliation to slough off dead skin cells, preparing your skin for the next steps.
  2. Acid Peel: A gentle peel is applied to help loosen deep pore dirt and oil without causing skin irritation.
  3. Extraction: Impurities (oil, dirt, blackhead, debris, etc) are painlessly extracted from the pores using a small vacuum-like attachment on the device.
  4. Hydration: The skin is infused with nourishing and hydrating serums rich in antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid.
  5. Protection: The final step locks in the benefits of an AquaFacial with serums that protect and rejuvenate the skin.
