The Treatment


The HydraFacial™ treatment is carried out in four steps:

Skin ablation

Dead skin cells are removed and healthy, fresh skin appears.

GlySal™ Acid peeling

This gentle peeling helps to soften deposits in the pores and prepares the deep cleansing.

Deep cleansing

Impurities and dissolved sebum deposits are extracted from the pore structure by a vacuum.

Hydration & LED light therapy

Antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and hyaluronic acid are infiltrated into the skin through the Vortex Fused Tip. Subsequently, LED light therapy is applied as required. Red light stimulates collagen production, blue light alleviates inflammation and helps with acne.

The HydraFacialTM



Antioxidants combat the damage caused to the skin by free radicals. At the same time, they ensure optimum hydration and a more even complexion. HydraFacial serums are characterised by an effective combination of various antioxidants that restore a beautiful and healthy complexion.


Peptides are the anti-aging heroes in medical skin care and help to reduce the signs of skin aging. The HydraFacial treatment contains a particularly effective peptide mixture. The patented complexes contain valuable protein building blocks to increase resilience and reduce fine wrinkles.


With increasing age the skin discolourations increase. Hyperpigmentation and dark pigmentation spots on the skin occur. The special HydraFacial brighteners Antiox+ and Brightenol help to reduce the irregular formation of melanin and ensure an even skin tone.


The foundation of a HydraFacialTM treatment is formed by the different acids. Glycol, Salicylic acid and lactic acid nourish the skin and gently remove dead skin cells. The special acid peeling formulations are suitable for all skin types – especially oily skin.
