Cleanse, exfoliate, nourish and hydrate your skin with a HydraFacial treatment at So Medical Aesthetics in Colchester.

What is a hydrafacial?

A HydraFacial is a non-invasive skincare treatment that combines several steps to revitalise the skin. It removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities whilst infusing the newly exposed skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturising serums. The treatment is anti-ageing, ideal for acne-prone skin and delivers immediate results.

At our aesthetic clinic in Colchester, we combine our HydraFacial with ZO Skin Health products and complementary phototherapy with Dermalux Tri-Wave MD to give you the best possible results.

We also provide HYDRAFACIAL KERAVIVE to unclog hair follicles, hydrate the scalp and promote hair growth.

Benefits Of HydraFacial

HydraFacials provide several benefits for all skin types. The treatment:

  • Deeply cleanses the skin, removing dirt, oil and impurities from the pores to help prevent breakouts and improve clarity.
  • Floods the skin with nourishing serums containing ingredients like Vitamin C, Hyaluronic Acid, Glycolic Acid and Peptides.
  • Helps to remove dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin.
  • Improves the overall tone and texture of the skin, reducing the appearance of uneven pigmentation, roughness and dullness.
  • Targets acne, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, redness and sensitivity.
  • Brightens, firms and tones the outer eye, when combined with an Eye Perk.
  • Plumps, smooths and hydrates the lips, when combined with a Lip Perk.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Does A HydraFacial Do?

HydraFacial treatments involve a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and protection to address various skin concerns. The five steps involved in the therapy target uneven tone and texture, acne and congestion, hyperpigmentation and sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles and dryness and dehydration.

What Is Involved In A HydraFacial Treatment?

The HydraFacial starts with lymphatic drainage of the face and neck to reduce puffiness and clear toxins from the skin. The skin is then cleansed and exfoliated before a brightening and resurfacing peel is applied.

Next, an extraction technique is delivered to unclog pores and remove blackheads. Finally, hyaluronic acid and peptides are infused into the skin with LED medical phototherapy, personalised skincare and SPF.

We can also deliver focused booster treatments for the eye area, lips and bodily skin. At your consultation, we can discuss these options in detail.

What Results Can I Expect From A HydraFacial?

After a HydraFacial, you’ll notice immediate results. Your skin will appear clearer, with reduced fine lines and a plumper complexion.

We recommend that you repeat the treatment once a month to improve wrinkles, pigmentation, oil and congestion over the long term.

Is HydraFacial Aftercare Required?

The skincare treatment is completely non-invasive, requiring zero clinical downtime. This means that you can apply make-up and return to your daily activities immediately after.

Am I A Good Candidate For A HydraFacial?

HydraFacials are non-invasive and effective for all skin types, including highly sensitive skin. Depending on your needs, we can even choose specific serums to customise the HydraFacial to your aesthetic goals. 

At So Medical Aesthetics, we offer yearly PAYMENT PLANS to spread the cost of regular HydraFacial treatments.

Are HydraFacials Good For Hair Health?

At our Colchester aesthetic clinic, we provide HYDRAFACIAL KERAVIVE treatments to remove dead skin cells and extract impurities from the scalp and hair follicles. This improves circulation and promotes hair growth.
