Hydrofacial Consent / Contraindications

The Hydrofacial provides hydration, oxygenation, anti-ageing, brightening, skin tightening and improves congestion, resulting in a glowing, brighter, more youthful-looking skin.

During treatment, you will experience varying sensations depending on the technologies that are used. However, the overall feeling is very relaxing, cooling and completely pain-free. The skin lifting technology may trigger slight twitching due to muscle contractions caused by the treatment, but this is normal and does not cause any discomfort. 

Multiple treatments are required in order to obtain optimal results spaced 2-6 weeks apart. Due to variables such as age, condition of your skin, sun damage, smoking, skin care products, climate, life-style, and general health, you acknowledge that there are no guarantees, warranties or assurances that you will be satisfied with your results.

10 technologies within the Hydrofacial treatment:

AHA is used to dissolve keratin and deep cleanse pores to remove blackheads and smooth the skins texture. 

BHA is used to remove comedones, sebum and to deep cleanse inner pores. More so used on heavily congested areas i.e. Nose, Chin, Cheeks, T Zone. It also has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.

Creates ‘the Bohr effect’, allowing oxygen to be drawn into the skin. The active ingredients used are Kojic Acid and Retinol which result in a hydrating and brightening effect.

Radio Frequency uses low energy radiation to heat the deep layer of your skin called the dermis. This heat stimulates the production of collagen to help improve signs of wrinkles and sagging skin.

This treatment uses electroporation to increase the absorbency of the cell for product penetration. With patented muscle stimulation it deeply activates and elevates your facial muscles, giving you the appearance of a fuller, more youthful face in just 10 minutes. 

Galactomyces Ferment Filtrate which gives deep hydration and nourishment to the skin which provides elasticity and brightening.

The ‘fire’ represents the heat element during treatment to open the pores, increase blood supply, and aid product infusion.

Ultrasound technology is used for product infusion. A Hyaluronic Mask is placed on the face and the ultrasound technology is used for 10 mins for maximum infusion. 

This spray creates a venturi effect, breaking down the molecules within the product to encourage skin hydration. Oxygen helps to improve blood circulation to the face, which can help skin look bright and plump. 

Ice Therapy uses cooling technology, chilling the skin down to 5 ̊C to decrease the bloody supply, giving a tightening effect, and sealing in the infused products. This also helps to reduce any erythema following treatment.

I understand that the treatment may involve risks of complication or injury from both known and unknown causes, and I freely assume those risks. Prior to receiving treatment, I have been candid in revealing any condition that may have a bearing on this procedure.

I consent and authorise Paige Edmonds to use all 10 technologies that make up the Hydrofacial treatment on me.
