The HydraFacial procedure available at the Allure Toowoomba clinic is designed to thoroughly care for your skin by using a three-step process that includes cleansing, exfoliating and hydration. Not only will this treatment reduce impurities but adding antioxidants and peptides at a deeper level will truly nourish your skin.
HydraFacial treatments are completely non-invasive, which means no incisions or downtime is necessary – no discomfort is experienced during your session either. HydraFacial results are immediate and your skin will continue to benefit long after your session.
The HydraFacial system is able to achieve superior results because of the multiple peeling edges that are passed over the skin several times during the exfoliation stage. To remove impurities and hydrate the skin at the same time, the device creates a vortex effect – this is thanks to the unique spiral design.
To achieve maximum benefits, several HydraFacial treatments are recommended. Once your specific skin concerns have been established, we will assist you with a tailored treatment plan that meets these needs.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How does HydraFacial work?
Before your treatment commences at the Allure clinic, your skin will need to be cleaned and prepped, which means removing any makeup too. The first stage of the treatment will exfoliate your skin in order to remove impurities and dead skin cells.
Next, a peel will be applied to reduce the appearance of pigmentation as well as fine lines and wrinkles. Thereafter, the extraction process will begin. This stage of the process is particularly beneficial if you have any small breakouts and bumps that you want to get rid of. The vacuum will gently extract the impurities, leaving you with cleaner skin and pores.
The final stage involves applying a hydrating and nutritive serum to the skin, which will provide it with the moisture it needs to look and feel healthier. The treatment is very comfortable and there’s no need for an anaesthetic.
The average HydraFacial usually takes anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, which means you can easily fit it in over your lunch break. Your facial can also be combined with additional anti-ageing procedures such as anti-wrinkle injections or fillers if you have other aesthetic goals that you want to achieve.
HydraFacial treatments are ideal for all skin types – even the most sensitive. Your clinician may recommend a specific serum to use during your treatment based on your specific goals and skin type.
A series of treatments will be required to achieve the desired result. Once your desired outcome has been achieved, a top-up treatment will be required every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain your results. Your clinician will assist you with a tailored treatment plan during your consultation at Allure clinic.
How long do HydraFacial results tend to last?
Many patients will see a noticeable difference in their skin tone after just one treatment. The hydrated and smooth results can last up to a week, if not longer, every patient is different. To really experience the full effects of this advanced treatment, regular HydraFacial treatments are recommended.
How do I know whether I’m a good candidate for this treatment?
The HydraFacial is ideal for all ages, skin types and colour. Even those with highly sensitive skin can benefit from this treatment. The ideal candidate for HydraFacial sessions is someone who wants to exfoliate, clean and hydrate the skin at a deep level, resulting in a natural glow and smoother, softer skin. This is also an ideal treatment for those who can’t usually undergo chemical peels and microdermabrasion.
What can I expect after a HydraFacial treatment?
Most patients report a more radiant and even skin tone after just one HydraFacial treatment, with the results lasting at least 7 days. It’s for this reason that one treatment a month is recommended to maintain your results.
While normal facials can leave your skin looking red, inflamed and sore, a HydraFacial treatment will leave your skin looking brighter and feeling softer, which is why so many patients schedule this treatment before a big event.
There is no need to plan for any downtime after a HydraFacial treatment and you will be able to apply makeup to your skin directly after your session. However, it is very important that you protect your skin from the sun after your treatment – a minimum of SPF 30 is required to prevent any sun damage.
Maintaining your results will also require you to follow your clinician’s specific aftercare instructions as well as a good at-home skincare regime. You may also find that you need to start using different products after your skin has been evaluated. Too many people are using harsh chemicals that are only stripping their skin of the necessary nutrients and oils. A good skincare regime doesn’t have to be complicated; it simply needs to be tailored to your specific requirements and skin type.
Can I undergo a HydraFacial the day before a big event?
Yes, it’s completely safe to receive a HydraFacial the day before a big event. If you are concerned, scheduling your session two or three days prior to your event is also ok since the results can last anywhere from 5 – 7 days.
What are the specific skin concerns that can be treated with a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial treatments can benefit patients with congested and acne-prone skin, as well as hydrate and nourish all skin types. Over and above this, if you simply want to reduce dullness, this is the right treatment for you.
