Hydrate your skin with hydrafacial
A common phrase associated with facial treatments is “no pain, no gain”. But the pain from needle pricks and lasers isn’t all that most facial treatments from aesthetic clinics impart to patients – these treatments often leave skin red and marked for a short time after the procedure. But what if there was a treatment available in Singapore that doesn’t require painful needles or lasers? It’s not too good to be true – this painless facial is possible with HydraFacial™.
Deep hydration is the key to healthy and beautiful skin. HydraFacial™ works with your skin to promote hydration and cleansing from within.
This non-invasive treatment helps rejuvenate skin by using suction to unclog pores and get rid of excess sebum and product build-up. It resurfaces the skin by removing dead skin cells and clearing the pores as well as hydrating the skin through deep penetration.
This treatment can be adapted to the individual’s needs to provide the best results based on each patient’s skin type and situation. This treatment works for both men and women and works with all different skin types. The long-lasting improvements appear almost immediately and improvement only continues with multiple treatments.
What are the benefits of HydraFacial™?
The effects of a round Hydrafacial™ start working immediately, and the instant benefits are numerous:
- Oil production control
- Improved skin elasticity
- More even skin tone
- Lighter pigmentation
- Reduced appearance of pimples and other blemishes

How does HydraFacial™ treatment work?
There are three steps to HydraFacial™ treatment:
- Peeling and Cleansing
- Extraction and Hydration
- Infusion and Protection
The treatment is administered with a handheld device that features multiple patented tips designed to target problem areas and to cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize the skin.
HydraFacial™ has a patented technology called Vortex that is used for extractions and infusions during treatment. This minimizes discomfort, treats skin problems efficiently, and ensures the right amount of Skin Solutions is delivered to the skin.
What are the types of skin solutions used in HydraFacial™ treatment?
HydraFacial™ technicians have specifically formulated these Skin Solutions in clinics to provide the best treatment for their customers. The table below describes what each solution does.
TYPE OF SKIN SOLUTION
This solution provides an intense cleansing to make extracting dirt and sebum from blocked pores much easier. Skin is supple and glowing after use.
This solution works best for oily skin to keep sebum production under control.
This mix of glycolic and salicylic acids works great with acne-prone skin. This solution won’t cause dry peeling like chemical peels often do.
This peptide formulation helps keep skin healthy and fresh by promoting collagen production.
What happens during the procedure?
Before undergoing the HydraFacial™ procedure, potential patients must consult with an aesthetic doctor to determine which solutions are best suited to each individual’s needs, based on their skin condition. When the patient has been assessed and the treatment plan personalized, the doctor can begin with the three HydraFacial™ treatment steps.
- Peeling and Cleansing. In this first step the skin is thoroughly cleaned and the sebum and dirt are softened to make them easier to extract. The skin is also exfoliated to remove dead skin cells.
- Extraction and Hydration. A vacuum device is used to suck the oil and dirt out of the clogged pores and moisturizers are used to improve skin health and hydration.
- Infusion and Protection. In this last step, the Skin Solutions containing antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides are applied to help revive and protect the skin.
How long does the procedure take?
HydraFacial™ treatment takes no longer than half an hour, and could easily be done on a lunch break.
Is there any pain involved during the treatment?
This procedure is non-invasive, non-surgical, and painless. Even those with low pain tolerance report feeling no pain. The specially designed and patented tips of the HydraFacial™ device are gentle and do not cause irritation on the skin.
What results can I expect from HydraFacial™?
After just one treatment session, patients will have smoother and more radiant skin, with an even skin tone and a lighter, softer feel to their skin. Patients can apply makeup on their skin immediately following HydraFacial™ treatment.
What are the aftercare steps I should take?
Sunblock is always recommended, but it is particularly important following a facial treatment to prevent the results from diminishing, and to protect against dangerous UV radiation. In order to keep your skin healthy and radiant, continue following a good skincare routine after the procedure.
Is there any downtime needed after the treatment?
Since this is a quick, non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime required. You can go in for HydraFacial™ treatment over your lunch break and return to work or your normal activities immediately after.
How long will the results last?
The improved texture and hydration of the skin will last for about five to seven days. To see even more improvement, patients are encouraged to make HydraFacial™ a monthly treatment.
How many treatments per month are needed to maintain healthy skin?
Once a month is sufficient to improve conditions such as hyperpigmentation, freckles, lines, and wrinkles, and to reduce blemishes and oil production.
Are there skin types that are not suitable for HydraFacial™ treatment?
HydraFacial™ works well with all skin types, including very sensitive skin. The tools and solutions used in this treatment are designed to be safe and gentle enough to be used on any skin type. HydraFacial™ is also recommended for those suffering from rosacea and dry, peeling skin.
Patients who are worried about undergoing facial treatment can ask to have a sensitivity test done. During the initial consultation, patients should inform their doctor if they have any sensitivity or conditions such as eczema, so the doctor can adjust the solutions and settings of the tools to work best with sensitive skin conditions.
Are there any skin conditions that HydraFacial™ cannot treat effectively?
When administered often, HydraFacial™ can lighten pigmentation and even out skin tone, but it cannot completely eradicate deep or permanent scars, from acne or otherwise.
How much does treatment cost?
One session costs around $150, but the price will vary according to the aesthetician providing treatment.
