Five reasons you need to try the Hydrafacial
I am often asked for my skin treatment recommendations and my response is always the same, pineapple on pizza, yes or no? In all seriousness, as a seasoned skin clinic goer, I always lean towards the more intense, high-tech treatments, which generally require downtime and are not as relaxing as your run of the mill facial. But I know that’s not for everyone, and we’ve all got different skin types and needs. One skin treatment I will always recommend however is the Hydrafacial.
Thanks to the official arrival of Winter, I’ve been feeling a little underwhelmed by my skin’s current state, so I visited the team at Youth Lab, Perth’s latest medical aesthetics clinic for an intervention. Youth Lab’s elegantly appointed rooms are tucked away on a quiet street in West Perth where a range of non-surgical treatments including medical grade peels, dermal fillers, skin needling and laser treatments are on offer. Founder and Medical Director, Dr Kate Jameson leads a team of highly experienced and equally passionate dermal therapists who provide clients with the most exceptional level of service.
Now, back to the Hydrafacial! This one of a kind skin rejuvenation procedure utilizes the very latest in skincare technology to treat a multitude of skincare concerns in one sitting, with no pain and absolutely no downtime. The Vortex-Fusion system that allows for cleansing, exfoliating, extraction and hydration to be performed in the one sitting, while simultaneously infusing antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The result is skin that is clear, smooth and supple with a noticeable glow. Should you require any more convincing, I’ve put together my top five reasons why you need to book in for one, pronto!
It’s pain free
Good news for those who are worried about painful dermal treatments, the most you will feel is the cool tip of the Vortex-Fusion “pen” that gently moves across the skin to cleanse and infuse. The serums and products that are applied to the skin don’t sting, prick or feel hot either.
There is no downtime
The only downside to chemical peels is the flaking and peeling experienced post-treatment, not the case with a Hydrafacial! Some skin types might experience slight redness but makeup can be applied and normal activities resumed straight away. Plus, you don’t need to wait 5-7 days to see the results of a Hydrafacial, you’ll be looking at bright, clear glowy skin within minutes of finishing your treatment.
It won’t break the bank
A full face Hydrafacial at Youth Lab will set you back $149, with price variations depending on whether or not you include décolletage, neck etc. For a treatment that treats just about everything, this is a pretty good investment. It is recommended to have 1 Hydrafacial every month for 3 months, and then every 2-3 months for maintenance. Youth Lab have some amazing packages on offer for multiple treatments too – bonus!
It treats everything
Acne? Dull, dry skin? Ageing? The Hydrafacial is a one stop shop for just about any skincare concern and in just one sitting will help to improve skin tone and texture, reduce fine lines, improvement in acne and congestion and reduced pigmentation.
It’s got the Hollywood tick of approval
If it’s good enough for Kate Winslet, then we’ll have what she’s having! The porcelain skinned beauty credits her clear, glowing complexion to regular Hydrafacials for red carpet prep and for regular skin maintenance.
The team at Youth Lab recommend adding a session of Healite LED Light Therapy to a Hydrafacial treatment. Apart from being deliciously relaxing (imagine you're lying on a beach somewhere warm), the light helps to speed up the body's natural cellular recovery time, assisting in subsiding active acne and promoting skin rejuvenation.
If you're keen to try the Hydrafacial, I can't recommend the team at Youth Lab more highly. The service is second to none, and the results are something to write home about.
