Hydrofacial to deep cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and hydrate your skin.
HydroMedi™ – hydrofacial treatments .
Hydromedi – hydrofacial treatments use a combination of the suction, turbulence and specially formulated clinical solutions to reach down into the skin and unblock pores, remove blackheads, bacteria, spots and pustules and generally carry pollutants away from the skin. Thus making it perfect for those suffering from acne or congested skin. This stage is then followed by a further stage to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. There is no down time and all skin types can be treated.
UK manufactured clinical grade solutions
All solutions used in the Hydromedi -hydrofacial are manufactured in the UK and are of clinical quality. Every batch is quality checked for conformity to specification. The main active ingredients are:
Stage 1 – uses 10% lactic acid which acts as a cleanser, mild exfoliator and is anti-bacterial. It will also start to soften the skin around for instance blackheads.
Stage 2 – uses 3% salicylic acid which is particularly effective at dissolving the congested sebum that leads to blackheads and acne pustules. The congestion within the blackhead, white head or pustule is then gently extracted through a combination of the vacuum applied to the skin and the turbulence of the solution. Finally the anti-bacterial action of the salicylic acid reaches down into the blackhead, whitehead or pustule to mop up any remaining bacteria.
Stage 3- then uses 10% vitamin C a powerful antioxidant to protect the skin and synthetic urea to hydrate it.
The need for urban defence.
The latest research into the effect of air bourn pollutants on the skin has identified 244 toxins in the air around us that can attach themselves to microscopic particles of less than 2.5 microns which are able to penetrate the skin. These toxins damage proteins in the skin so that it dries out faster and produces less collagen, which is what keeps skin firm.
These particles are precisely the type commonly found in diesel exhaust fumes and more recently wood burning stoves. As a result, although all of us are exposed to some pollution the effect on those living in urban environments is far greater and can cause their skin to age 10% faster than their country living cousins. It was previously thought pollutants would rest on the surface of the skin but the news that they are able to penetrate below the surface means these damaging microscopic particles cannot be wiped away with the normal cleanser on a pad of cotton wool.
HydroMedi – Hydrofacial treatments differ in that they deep cleanse, exfoliate and nourish the skin far more effectively than conventionally applied creams and serums.
