Are you looking to revitalise your skin with a treatment that not only leaves you glowing but also promotes long-term skin health? Look no further than Hydrafacial MD™. In this blog post, we’ll delve into what Hydrafacial is all about and give you a peek into the step-by-step treatment so you can know what to expect during your visit.


What is Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial MD™ is a gentle yet effective facial treatment designed to rejuvenate your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production while simultaneously resurfacing the skin. This results in a clearer, healthier-looking and more vibrant complexion.


What happens in a Hydrafacial treatment?

When you step into Artisan Aesthetic Clinics for your Hydrafacial treatment, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a one-on-one consultation with one of our experienced dermal therapists. During this session, your therapist will assess your skin’s suitability for the treatment and discuss your unique skin needs and goals. This is also a perfect opportunity for you to ask any burning questions you might have about the treatment and your skin health in general.
  2. Skin Prep: To ensure optimal results, we start by prepping and cleansing your skin using Australia’s premium skincare range. This step is crucial as it sets the foundation for the rest of the treatment.
  3. Exfoliation: Next, we gently exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresh, radiant complexion underneath. This step helps in improving skin texture and promoting cell turnover.
  4. Extraction and Hydration: One of the highlights of Hydrafacial is its ability to extract impurities from your pores while simultaneously hydrating your skin. The machine used in the treatment performs this dual action, leaving your skin deeply cleansed and moisturized.
  5. Serum Infusion: As the final step, we infuse your skin with specialised serum boosters. We offer a range of serum boosters tailored to different skin types and concerns. Your clinician will help you choose the right one to address your specific needs, whether it’s hydration, brightening, or anti-ageing.

How long does a Hydrafacial take?

A Hydrafacial is a quick yet effective way to pamper your skin and achieve a refreshed, radiant appearance. We recommend scheduling an hour out of your day.

The Hydrafacial treatment itself typically takes around 30 minutes to complete. We also require our new clients to attend a complimentary consultation for 10-15 minutes before the actual treatment begins.


What are the benefits of a Hydrafacial?

  • Instantly noticeable results: Experience immediate improvements in skin texture, tone, and hydration.
  • Non-invasive: Enjoy a gentle treatment that doesn’t require downtime, making it perfect for busy schedules.
  • Customizable: Tailor the treatment to your specific skin concerns with the help of our experienced dermal therapists.
  • Long-lasting effects: Continued treatments can lead to enhanced skin health and a more youthful complexion over time.


Can I have this treatment if I am pregnant/breastfeeding?

Pregnancy brings along shifts in skin sensitivity and characteristics that deserve special attention. Unfortunately, Hydrafacial is not suitable for clients who are pregnant or breastfeeding. However, we do have a carefully curated range of treatments that can cater to your skin’s unique needs during this transformative journey.
We recommend booking a consultation with one of our experienced clinicians to discuss our pregnancy-safe treatments.

At Artisan, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident in their skin. With Hydrafacial MD™, you can achieve that coveted glow while prioritising the long-term health of your skin. Schedule your Hydrafacial appointment today and embark on your journey to master the artistry of you.
