The Basics to the Hydradermie Facial

 

Galvanic Current

 
The Hydradermie begins with a good cleansing and exfoliation, making the skin receptive to the benefits which follow. Next, depending on skin type, condition, and treatment goals, we apply customized treatment gels to the face, neck, and around the eye contourThe treatment gels target dryness, dehydration, wrinkles, hyper pigmentation, and sensitive skin.

Galvanic Current is then applied to the skin, which initiates two processes known as Ionisation and Disincrustation.  The basic principles of Ionisation are that positive ions are attracted to negative ions, and during this phase, two soothing, electrically charged metal rollers glide over the skin, interacting with the treatment gels and resulting in a deeper and faster penetration of the active ingredients.  The action of the Galvanic Current also softens (disincrusts) blackheads and clogged pores, making extraction of these blackheads easier and more effective.

 

High Frequency

 
The next phase of the facial is the High Frequency phase, this helps to oxygenate the skin’s tissues and cells by stimulating circulation and eliminating toxins.  High Frequency is particularly effective in

  • Energizing skin cells that become sluggish with the aging process.
  • Accelerating the healing of blemishes as well as preventing the formation of new ones.

A cream known to us as “OZ-2” is applied to the face and neck.  The OZ-2 has a high concentration of lavender, which enhances the benefits of the High Frequency phase.  Although each phase of the Hydradermie contributes to that post-facial glow and radiance, I believe that the High Frequency phase contributes the most.

 

Massage & Mask 

 
Next comes a relaxing massage of the neck, shoulders, and facial muscles followed by a facial mask.  In the Hydradermie each phase builds on the previous one, so as we enter the last phase, the skin is even more receptive to a final infusion.  We finish the Hydradermie with an application of a toning lotion to refine the skin’s texture, balance it’s pH, and prepare it for a moisturizer appropriate for the skin type providing additional softening, smoothing, protection and glow.

 

We would be delighted to answer questions you may have regarding the Hydradermie facial. For a brief video describing the Hydradermie treatment and demonstrating it’s equipment, please refer to the video below.

 


 

Who Should Not Get a Hydradermie Facial

 

The Hydradermie is appropriate for the vast majority of skin types and conditions and provides excellent long-lasting results.  That being said, there are a few circumstances which cause us to recommend other Guinot facials because the electric currents could be too stimulating or uncomfortable.   We generally refrain from performing the Hydradermie if any of the following conditions are present:

  • Pregnancy
  • A significant amount of metal pins or prostheses in the body
  • Pacemaker

 

Fun Fact: The Hydradermie was first introduced in 1965 and has been performed in every major city in the world for nearly 50 years.
