Hydradermabrasion is the technology behind Hydrafacial. Introduced to the UK in 2009 as a more advanced treatment to microdermabrasion.
Hydrafacial actively causes the skin to take up moisture during treatment. The Hydrafacial has a special spiral tip with multiple edges to exfoliate the skin several times as the tip moves over the skin. Serums applied to the skin enable dead cells, sebum (skin’s oil) and impurities to be extracted.
Hydrafacial philosophy is skin health for life™ and is therefore about lifestyle change requiring monthly hydrafacial treatments and a daily commitment to the application of home skin care products.
At Thames Skin Clinic we are committed to skin health and have a skin fitness program tailored to your personal skin needs.

Hydrafacial treatments vary by the area and products given to achieve the best results. We often get asked about the cost of treatment. At Thames Skin Clinic we pride ourselves on results rather than focus on the price of a treatment, it is more important that we get the correct quality of product rather than offer cut price treatments, products and services (especially when it comes to medical treatments). You will never see Thames Skin Clinic advertising services on social coupon sites such as Groupon as we believe they have a negative impact on our customer safety, results and satisfaction. We also wish to abide by the advertising regulator and work in a safe ethical manor.
Our prices reflect the skill, training and premier product choices we have made as well as the true reflection of the beautiful bespoke clinic surroundings.
