Dr Sarwar’s Breakdown Of Our Favourite Hydrafacial Boosters
At Skin Science Clinic we have the very best Hydrafacial boosters available on the market.
Why is this important for you as a client? From my experience, the very best hydrafacial results are achieved through personalisation of the hydrafacial treatment itself, so that the facial is tailored to your individual skin concerns. Rest assured, before your hydrafacial, our therapists will show you the treatment vials of your choice, to ensure complete transparency and for you to be assured that you receive the serum you have pay for.
To boost or not to boost?
For those patients who choose the signature hydrafacial, which does not include a booster – you will still achieve great results. The booster turbocharges hydrafacial taking it to the next level of skin treatment.
As a clinic, we made the decision to include the Gysal Peel in all of our hydrafacial options. I feel the peel is crucial in achieving a good result from the hydrafacial. The glycolic peel is buffered with salicylic acid, with minimal to no post-procedure peeling. There are three dosing options, 7.5%, 15% and 30%. The peel at the light dose is great for brightening skin complexion, whereas the other doses are excellent for the treatment of acne.
Glycolic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid, which helps to brighten the skin through exfoliation.
Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid which also exfoliates the skin and works better for the treatment of whiteheads, blackheads and acne.
Which boosters work best for anti-ageing?
There are a few options to boost your hydrafacial result from an anti-ageing perspective.
1) Dermabuilder – Formulated by Hydrafacial, this peptide formulation helps to improve fine lines and wrinkles.
2) Paul Nassif Hydraglucan – This booster is incredible for those looking for a drastic improvement in levels of skin hydration and plumpness. This super serum contains a potent cocktail of hyaluronic acid, betaine and glucan. Betaine improves eipdermal cell cohesion resulting in a stronger skin barrier. NAG is a major molecule involved in hyaluronic acid, therefore improving the water-binding capacity of the skin.
3) Murad Retinol Booster – Great choice for those suffering with fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone. The retinol tri-active brings together retinol technologies, fast-acting and slow acting. This helps to improve cellular turnover, promoting the development of a fresh, smoother layer of skin.
Which boosters work best for pigmentation?
1) Britenol – A great booster for mild pigmentation/pigmentation spots. Alpha-arbutin acts as a brightening agent, Vitamin C is a key antioxidant and includes bearberry extract which brightens.
2) ZO Brightalive – The world-renowned Dr Obagi has formulated some of the most effective anti-pigmentation creams in the market. One of his bestsellers is the ZO brightalive serum, which he has now formulated for Hydrafacial use. It contains a unique, patented skin brightening complex and glycerin which aids hydration. Ingredients also help to prevent pigment formation.
Which booster works best for Rosacea?
I feel that Rosacea is actually one of the most difficult medical skin conditions to “cure” and often requires continual maintenance. The ZO Rozatrol booster gets absolutely fantastic reviews with patients a reduction in the “redness” of their skin. Ingredients include a patented multi-redness complex including lactose and milk protein.
Overall the best option is for you to come in, and see one of our expert HydraFacialists for an in-depth thorough consultation. During this consultation, our team will go through your past medical history and examine your skin closely and provide you with options which we feel are suitable for your skin.
