Lets talk about HydraFacial

Posted 04/10/2020 | Treatments

HydraFacial is more than just your normal facial it’s an experience!

What is HydraFacial?

The ultimate facial treatment can be personalised with 10 potential steps selected within you tailored HydraFacial treatment. With the ability focus on concerns including acne, congestion, collagen stimulation, pigmentation, photo damage, age spots and anti-aging we are able to  make your HydraFacial experience at Thames Skin Clinic totally bespoke to  skin concerns with the ability to flex this depending on how your skin feels on the day.

With the winter approaching the colder outside temperatures and the contrast with warmer central heating cause skin to change. The biggest winter skin problems include is

  • dryness – from the cold temperatures and often hot heating.
  • chapped lips – especially if you lick your lips.
  • dry skin around the eye area and sensitivity.
  • oily skin issues – if you have oily skin the winter months can cause oil production to go into overdrive.
  • dehydrated skin – due to disrupted barrier function causing the skin’s natural hydration humectant activity to decline creating internal dehydration which can be compounded using moisturisers which block the skin’s function and prevent exfoliation.

HydraFacial uses a patented advanced vortex technology to deeply cleanse the skin and effectively deliver botanical ingredients containing nutrients such as hyaluronic acid, horse chestnut seed extract, red algae, copper, zinc and magnesium peptides to where they do the most good. In addition, HydraFacial also delivers powerful antioxidants to counteract damage by free radicals created from pollution, sun and stress. HyrdaFacial treatment helps to protect the skin from free radicals which degrade the skin and accelerate the ageing process as well as stimulate barrier repair mechanisms destroyed with many over the counter skin products.

The Vortex cleansing and hydra peel exfoliation alongside it’s hermetic suction provides unparalleled results! This treatment is completely non-invasive promoting healthy skin structure and function with long lasting results with no downtime or discomfort.

There are many ways in tailoring this fantastic treatment, from choosing which “tip” to create a more intensive treatment to also using the correct “serum” to combat your main concern or skin conditions.


HydraFacial can treat specific skin conditions such as:

  • Encouraging skin health and rejuvenation.
  • Improving hydration, tiredness and brining vitality to dull lack lustre skin.
  • Collagen stimulating anti-ageing treatment using Dermabuilder superserum peptide
  • Acne, congestion prone skin with the option to add an additional Blue Peel Radiance

  • Sunspots, sun damage and photo damage
  • Specific lip PERK treatments to hydrate and plump natural lip stimulation.
  • Specific eye PERK treatments to rejuvenate the sensitive eye area.

HydraFacial really is for everyone


How does HydraFacial work?

Lets’ take a look at HydraFacial’s unique patented Vortex technology.

HydraFacial uses a unique, patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system to exfoliate, extract and hydrate skin. The unique design of the HydroPeel® Spiral Tips, used in conjunction with the unique HydraFacial vacuum technology and serums, creates a vortex effect to easily dislodge and remove impurities while simultaneously delivering hydrating skin solutions. The spiral design delivers painless extractions.

HydraFacial has 6 traditional steps with optional additional treatment and skin stimulating programs.

New Hair Treatment from HydraFacial


Hydrafacial has introduced a unique scalp stimulation and hair growth treatment called Keravive. 

Keravive is a new treatment designed to promote scalp health,  leaving you with thicker, fuller, healthier looking hair.

Poor scalp health is a major contributor to damaged and thinning hair. Hydrafacial Keravive promotes scalp health by stimulating and unclogging hair follicles, boosting circulation, exfoliating and removing dead skin and congestion while hydrating the scalp.

Keravive targets the problems of dry skin, clogged follicles, dead skin cells and the lack of circulation which lead directly to thinner-looking hair. Keravive encourages a healthy scalp which is the foundation for healthier and fuller looking hair!
