What is HydraFacial™?

  • Acne
  • Dark patches (hyperpigmentation)
  • Clogged pores
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Brown spots from sun exposure or ageing
  • Blackheads

The HydraFacial™ system works without surgery, injections or recovery time. Patients at our Winston Hills, NSW dental clinic who have undergone treatment report no downtime afterwards.

One of the things Dr Lavery appreciates most about this treatment is that it is appropriate for almost any patient because it works for all skin types. If you are experiencing any of the following issues, you might want to try HydraFacial™:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loss of elasticity and firmness
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Poor skin texture
  • Brown spots from sun exposure or ageing
  • Oily skin
  • Clogged pores
  • Enlarged pores

What can I expect with HydraFacial™ treatment?

Most patients who have undergone treatment at our Winston Hills, NSW dental and skin clinic find that HydraFacial™ is a relaxing procedure that invigorates the skin. It is a three-step process.

The first step is exfoliation, which cleanses the skin while removing dead skin. This part of the treatment can remove impurities that are embedded in the pores. It also provides moisture to dry skin.

Next is the peel process. Most patients report a tingly feeling in their face during this step, but it is not uncomfortable.

Finally, Dr Lavery will deliver a serum to the skin that helps to prevent brown spots from forming, and it can also smooth out fine lines because it may boost collagen.

After this non-invasive, detoxifying treatment, patients often report seeing a difference in their skin immediately. They also experience none of the irritation that often comes with other facial treatments.

What are the expected results of getting treatment?

The serum delivery system and peel combined set HydraFacial™ apart from other skin procedures. The multi-step system not only provides a deep cleansing of the skin, but it also extracts impurities and exfoliates dead skin cells. There is also evidence that it replenishes nutrients that the skin needs for vitality, including antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. The multi-step system can give skin a fresher, more youthful appearance by reducing the appearance of find lines and wrinkles. It has been shown to improve collagen, making skin appear plumper and firmer.

Patients at our Winston Hills, NSW dental clinic report that results are immediate and long-lasting.

Is it a good idea to try a treatment such as HydraFacial™ before a big event, such as a wedding?

Because HydraFacial™ is suitable for nearly any skin type and there is virtually no recovery time after treatment, it is an ideal way to prepare your skin for an important event—and that includes your wedding. There are no worries about reddened skin after this treatment as there is with some others.

Preparing for a wedding can be exhausting, and the HydraFacial™ can provide a welcome time for total relaxation.

How many treatments will I need?

Hydra Facial Skin Treatment | Martina Lavery Dentist and SkinAlthough many patients notice results after just one treatment, we recommend getting more than one treatment. We offer a number of packages that can help ensure your skin looks its best—for your big day or just to take on life. To help maximise results, you may wish to consider combining your HydraFacial™ treatment with another procedure, such as lymphatic drainage and LED light therapy.

Is HydraFacial™ safe for sensitive skin?

Yes, it is safe and gentle on all types of skin, including skin that is sensitive.

What other treatments do you offer that go along with HydraFacial™?

We recommend lymphatic drainage and LED light therapy to go along with your HydraFacial™ treatment at our Winston Hills, NSW dental and skin clinic.

Lymphatic Drainage

The lymph nodes are sometimes referred to as the body’s waste removal system. The lymph nodes contain the white blood cells that help the body fight off infection. Lymphatic drainage treatment helps to restimulate the lymphatic system. When people get sick, the lymph nodes can be swollen and sluggish. With lymphatic drainage, we attempt to re-stimulate the lymph nodes to help get the body’s blood flow working again correctly.

Lymphatic drainage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the blood flow. At our Winston Hills, NSW dental and skin clinic, the procedure is performed via a facial cup that is attached to the HydraFacial™ machine.

LED Light Therapy

Different types of LED light therapy incorporate different wavelengths of light. These wavelengths are used to reach the deep inner layers of the skin and are believed to help with a variety of skin issues. Different-coloured lights are used, depending on the type of skin issue being addressed.

  • Red light and infrared—Used to address the effects of ageing and is designed to help revitalise the impact of ageing on the skin
  • Blue light and infrared—Used for skin that is prone to pimples and acne
  • Yellow light and infrared—Can help those who might be struggling with sinus problems or who otherwise feel unwell
  • Green light and infrared—Used for those who have pigmentation on the skin

We can also combine colours to work toward different goals:

  • Red and blue light combined with infrared—This can help calm the skin after receiving other treatments
  • Green and blue light combined with infrared—This combination can help with skin that is reddened from acne or rosacea
  • Yellow and blue light combined with infrared—These colours can help to detoxify and purify the skin
  • Green and blue light combined with infrared—This combination is another way to purify and brighten the skin

LED light therapy has many benefits, and we invite you to call our Winston Hills, NSW dental and skin clinic to learn more about how it might be able to help you.
