We all know that taking care of our skin is of paramount importance, but with the hustle and bustle of modern day living, it can be difficult to give your skin the love it deserves. We are spoilt for choice when it comes to skin treatments, but how do we find the best procedure to suit our skin type (and budget)?
Direct from the skincare heavens, the team from Advanced Aesthetics offers a convenient, LIFE CHANGING, effective thirty-minute HydraFacial – ideal for any gal or guy on-the-go.
With no rest for the wicked, I rarely have a moment to spare on pampering myself. My ears perked up when I heard about a non-surgical, no down time procedure with instantly noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture. Jane and Jess, the lovely ladies behind Advanced Aesthetics on King William Road, told me once I had a HydraFacial, I’d be returning for more (they were right).
For those of you who don’t know, a HydraFacial tackles common problem areas in skin tone and texture. Suitable for almost everyone, the HydraFacial targets fine lines, sun damage, wrinkles, blemishes, pigmentation and oily skin to holistically improve skin health and appearance. Combining exfoliation and deep cleansing technology with nourishing anti-oxidants, the facial involves a comprehensive five-step process in a quick half hour. The same tool is used throughout the entire HydraFacial, with the tip altered to execute each step. Every step is just as important as the next in order to achieve optimum outcome.
I am so impressed with my results after just one HydraFacial treatment. Having recently suffered from adult acne, I was very self-conscious of the pigmentation and scars left behind. I noticed an INSTANT improvement in my skin with many friends firing compliments about my refreshed, glowing skin. For those who have contemplated having a HydraFacial, DO IT!
For those intrigued on how the HydraFacial works, here’s a quick overview of the Advanced Aesthetics HydraFacial steps:
Step 1 – cleanse and exfoliate
Activ-4 Serum removes excess skin cells to reveal glowing new skin while Algae Extract calms, soothes and hydrates.
Step 2 – acid peel
A gentle peel is applied to loosen dirt and debris from the pores without irritation or nasty post-peel scaling.
Step 3 – vortex extractions
A painless and automated extraction process using vortex suction to clear out the pores. BetaHD Serum and Honey Extract boost hydration and provide antibacterial benefits. So satisfying!
Step 4 – hydrate
Vortex-Fused Antioxidants and Hyaluronic Acid nourish and protect while Horse-Chestnut Seed, Green Tea and Arnica Flower Extracts detoxify and protect the skin. This step forms and tightens the skin while boosting collagen and elastin as well as reducing melanin in the skin to prevent future discolouration.
Step 5 – protect
LED Light works to protect the skin. Red Light calms while Blue Light reduces oil production and kills bacteria, perfect for acne prone skin.
& voila! With no down time, you can return to your busy lifestyle with no need to hibernate. Some people can experience slightly redness shortly after the procedure.
The HydraFacial is the perfect comprehensive skin care solution for every time poor lady boss.
