During a 3D HydrO2 Facial, the therapist is able to choose from one or all of the available technologies in order to create a completely bespoke treatment package; including radiofrequency skin tightening, ultrasonic treatment, hydro peel, deep cleanse, exfoliation, oxygenation, hydration and a cryo-facial.
3D HYDROPEEL: Uses a combination of three solutions to cleanse and smooth the skin using an AHA based solution. It hydrates and nourishes the skin using RH-Oligopeptide-1 and Acetyl Hexapeptide base. Bacteria and inflamed skin are improved using a BHA solution. Vacuum action removes impurities from congested areas of skin.
EXFOLIATION: Exfoliation is via a single use capsule containing citric acid and sodium bicarbonate. When combined with glycerol, a foaming effect is created producing carbon dioxide which induces the release of oxygen from red blood cells. When oxygen is naturally released to the skin from inside the body, it results in a true oxygenation.
OXYGENATION: A lack of oxygen slows down cell metabolism, ages cells prematurely, reduces skin firmness and creates a dull complexion. 3D HydrO2 Facial will supply 25% oxygen and other specially selected ingredients to the upper layers of the epidermis and to increase blood flow, cell regeneration and help to minimise free radical damage. Some bacteria are unable to live in oxygen so the treatment can also have a positive effect on congestion.
HYDRATION: After applying a hydrating mask, ultrasound technology is used over the top in order to infuse the product into the skin. Its thermal action has a stimulating effect on the blood flow and activates cell metabolism. The biochemical effects trigger a micro massage in the tissue which stimulates the formation of new collagen.
SKIN LIFTING: Electroporation technology momentarily creates spaces in the outer layers of the skin enabling greater absorption of specially selected products that are applied topically. Using a combination of iontophoresis and anti-gravity actions, this hand piece also produces a minor muscle contraction and lifting effect.
SKIN TIGHTENING: Tri-polar radiofrequency delivers the energy directly into the dermis, raising the temperature to between 40-42 degrees. This causes an immediate contraction of existing mature collagen fibres and stimulation of the fibroblasts which results in the production of new collagen and a lasting, firmer, healthier skin.
CRYO FACIAL: The ‘Cryo-facial’ is a dual modality hand piece which uses heat and cooling technology. The skin temperature is heated to 42 degrees, which dilates the pores for deeper cleansing and also creates heat shock proteins—these are chemical messengers that trigger repair mechanisms to improve elasticity and firmness of the skin. The cooling aspect, chills the skin down to 5 degrees and is used at the end of each facial to give a further tightening and helps to seal infused products into the skin.
