Hydradermabrasion, marketed as the Hydrafacial™ treatment is a similar concept to microdermabrasion, however the primary difference is the lack of any crystals used to assist in the exfoliation process, and the use instead of a specially shaped spiral tip which exfoliates and removes impurities along with delivering pneumatically applied serums that cleanse, hydrate and provide antioxidant infusion during the treatment process.
Hydradermabrasion is indicated for the improvement in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, congested and enlarged pores (e.g., blackheads), oily or acne-prone skin and hyperpigmentation (i.e. dark areas of the skin, such as brown age spots). The procedure is used in combination with chemical peels, some skincare products, LED lights and different types of tips if a more aggressive treatment is needed.
The average cost of a basic treatment is approximately £100, with advanced treatments including LED lights, peels or growth factor serums being in the range of £125+.
