HYDRAFACIAL: A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON

It is estimated that hydrafacial is performed every 15 seconds globally, or around 2 million treatments a year. The Philippines is catching up fast with a mega following inspite of the stiff price of P5,000 to P10,000 per session. And that’s because it is more than just a facial. Now, SkinStation introduces its own version with advanced DERMAX Hf ProFacial device and signature blends of cleansers, exfoliant and serum.

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Central to the procedure is an innovative device that does gentle cleansing, exfoliating, and extraction, followed by ultrasound, RF, and iontophoresis. The finale is serum infusion using customized blend to address specific skin care concerns. Serum infusion can be customized to target hyperpigmentation, sun damage and acne marks. The appearance of enlarged pores, blackheads and comedones can also be minimized. Long term use helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles with Advanced Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Serum.

 

WHAT IS THE STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE? 

The 60 to 90-minute procedure starts with deep cleansing, followed by hydration and exfoliation to refresh the skin; third step is to gently extract blackheads, sebum and debris especially in the oily T-zone. Then there are the ultrasound and RF devices to help contour, firm, and tighten skin; mask is applied next with iontophoresis and the last step is serum infusion with customized intensive skin boosters to help with specific skin concerns and needs.  

 

WHO IS IT GOOD FOR?

While DERMAX Hf ProFacial appeals to all ages, concerns and complexions, it is ideal for those who are afraid of painful pricking and injectables but want to see real and fast results.  

 

WHAT TO EXPECT? WHAT IS TREATMENT INTERVAL?

It’s more than just a facial and there is nothing painful or uncomfortable about the process. The procedure can be done every 2 weeks for the first 3 sessions, then monthly for maintenance. Expect consistent results to give you that extra glow.
