Discover the magic of the Hydrafacial and let’s start a journey together towards the ultimate glow and rejuvenation of your skin!
This is the most advanced form of cleansing, treatment and skin care combined, through the Hydrafacial hydrodermabrasion device. It is a non-traumatic treatment, which rejuvenates, nourishes and treats the needs of every skin type in 3 stages. It is carried out using a special hydrodermabrasion device, for deeper penetration of the nutrients and the achievement of longer lasting results. In fact, it can be adapted to meet the specific needs of all skin types, even the most sensitive or intolerant. It offers immediate, impressive results without the need for recovery or causing irritation. The treatment is soothing, refreshing and immediately effective, without irritating or causing redness to the skin. It is ideal for all skin types and suitable for men and women.
Hydrafacial is a powerful 3-step treatment!
The treatment includes 3 basic steps, which can be personalized or enriched according to the needs of each patient’s skin. In the first step of the treatment, the skin is cleansed and exfoliated with a gentle peeling, gently removing dead skin cells and revealing a healthier complexion. This revitalizing step not only enhances the appearance of your skin, but also facilitates better absorption of the products applied in the following steps of the treatment.
The second step includes sebum extraction/removal, which can be applied even to the most sensitive skin. By applying painless gentle suction, clogged, enlarged pores are cleared and annoying blackheads and whiteheads are eliminated. Next comes the third step, which is the hallmark of the treatment – hydration. By applying specially formulated serums that contain a mixture of nutrients according to the needs of each skin type, deep hydration and nourishment of the skin is achieved. This blend of nutrients contained in each serum fights the signs of aging, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and provides a healthy glow. The selection of nutrients applied in each case is completely individualized, depending on the needs of each patient’s skin.
Application of specialized Boosters
For the ultimate personalization of the Hydrafacial treatment, special Boosters can be applied. Boosters are powerful formulas packed with active ingredients that target and address specific skin concerns. The treatment device uses gentle suction to open the pores and apply the Boosters into the deeper layers of the skin.
Boosters, depending on their formula, contribute:
- In maintaining the healthy and youthful appearance of the skin
- In the deep hydration of the skin
- In reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- In boosting the elasticity of the skin
- In minimizing the appearance of dark spots
- In balancing skin tone
- In the exfoliation and rejuvenation of the skin, as there is the possibility of applying special peelings of adjustable intensity
What skin issues is Hydrafacial indicated for?
The treatment can be applied to the face to treat issues such as:
- Fine lines & wrinkles
- Dark spots & melasma
- Loss of elasticity & firmness
- Clogged, enlarged pores
The results are immediately visible and last about 15-20 days. The treatment can be repeated as a monotherapy every month, while if it is combined with other treatments or protocols of the clinic every 2 or 3 months. Return to activities is immediate as there is no recovery needed.
Treatments – Hydrafacial
In our clinic, Hydrafacial is combined with a multitude of other treatments such as neurotoxin treatment or hyaluronic acid fillers, mesotherapy, lasers and specialized antiaging, acne and discoloration protocols. Starting with the Hydrafacial, we create the ultimate canvas for applying a multitude of injectable or non-invasive treatments. Prepping the skin with this powerful treatment and subsequent application of a host of other treatments can provide significantly improved aesthetic results!
After the treatment, you do not need to wash your face for at least 6 hours after the treatment in order not to remove the nutrients that have been injected into the skin. It is important to avoid sauna, steam or sunbathing without sunscreen for 2-3 days. The application of sunscreen with SPF30 and higher daily is essential. You can apply make up the very next day. It is highly recommended to avoid applying products that irritate the skin such as masks, peels, retinoids or strong cleansers. In general, for the first 2-3 days after treatment, simple hydration with silicone-free products and enhanced sun protection are recommended.
The versatility of the Hydrafacial ensures that it addresses each person’s unique skin concerns. Whether the problem is acne, fine lines, hyperpigmentation or simply rejuvenating dull and tired skin, the treatment can be tailored to each individual’s specific needs. Its gentle yet powerful action makes it suitable for all skin types, ensuring that everyone can enjoy glowing, healthy skin without any recovery or irritation. The Plastic Surgeon in Athens Dr. Maria Skolarikou adapts the treatment according to the needs and wishes of each individual patient, as the protocols applied are completely individualized.
