Core Features of Hydrafacial: Classic Three-step Treatment
Hydrafacial's classic skincare treatment follows a three-step process of "cleaning, rejuvenating, and moisturizing." Its core lies in the use of meticulously researched formula essence in conjunction with the VORTEX dual-action hydrodynamic technology in skincare science.
The probe used in Hydrafacial is disposable, rejecting reuse to avoid the risk of cross-contamination.



Cleansing Step

Blue Probe + Activ 4 Essence

The vortex hydrodynamics assist in replacing aging keratin, maintaining skin vitality. Lactic acid within the essence softens and removes aging keratin, gently cleansing the pores, enhancing skin hydration, and awakening cellular vitality. Simultaneously, the inclusion of seaweed extracts and yeast components provides nourishing and antioxidant effects, preparing the skin adequately for subsequent steps.



Rejuvenation Step

Green Probe + Beta HD Essence

Precisely targets the T-zone for clear pores and helps balance oil and water.

Combined with salicylic acid in the essence for deep cleansing, it aids in softening blackheads, removing excess oil and dirt from the pores, unclogging sebaceous glands, improving the inner walls of deformed pores, and effectively tightening the pores. Simultaneously, with the inclusion of extracts such as elm and chrysanthemum, and honey in the essence, it regulates sebum secretion, inhibits inflammation, provides intense hydration, and leaves the skin revitalized with a radiant and hydrated look.


Moisturizing Step

Clear Probe + Antiox+ Essence

During the golden period of skin penetration after the thorough cleansing steps, the skin's sebaceous gland ducts are in their most unobstructed state. Using the nourishing infusion probe and combining it with highly effective nourishing ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, mineral peptides, calendula extract, green tea extract, etc., deeply antioxidize, repair damaged skin, soothe and reduce redness, effectively diminish fine lines, improve skin texture, and provide comprehensive nourishing care for deep hydration, anti-oxidation, anti-aging, and repair. This step imparts natural, healthy radiance to the skin.
