The Ultimate Complexion Enhancing Treatment, Giving You Skin Health for Life.

Many of us make the effort to go the gym to keep our bodies fit, toned and healthy; here at The Grove Skin & Laser Clinic in Swansea we believe everyone should be treating their skin in the same way.

A medical facial treatment that includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, painless extraction, hydration and intense antioxidant protection alongside red LED light that helps stimulate collagen production is ideal. With regular Hydrafacials®, your skin will look radiant, glowing and, best of all, younger!

“Good Skin does not happen by accident”

hydrafacial® Introduction

This “Ultimate Facial” treatment replaces separate lymphatic drainage, microdermabrasion, peels, extraction, infusion, hydration and light emitting diode treatments and combines cleansing, exfoliation, detoxification, extraction, hydration and protection to leave your skin feeling refreshed and youthful.  It is non-irritating making it safe for even sensitive skin and a cost effective way to treat all skin types of any age.

Dead skin and impurities are removed as the area is bathed in cleansing, hydrating and moisturising serums. Skin is left looking and feeling fresher with a subtle improvement in appearance, texture and hydration.This gentle method gives a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as an overall improvement in skin health.

Hydrafacial® Treatment Process

The Hydrafacial® is a unique 6-step process using vortex technology

Step 1:  Detox – increases the lymphatic circulation in the skin

Step 2:  Cleanse & Exfoliate – Dead skin cells are removed with the vacuum based tip whilst delivering serum to the skin

Step 3: Brightening Agent/Peel – A glycolic and salicylic solutions is applied to the skin to de-congest the pores – brightening the skin and prepping the skin for the extraction step

Step 4:  Extraction – this is unique to the Hydrafacial®!  A gentle extraction process using salicylic acid and honey to draw out blackheads and impurities in the skin.

Step 5:  Hydration – the skin is drenched in moisture with a mix of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, and peptides and multi-peptides to support collagen stimulation

Step 6:  Rejuvenation – the final step is a red and infrared LED light applied to the skin.  Soothing the skin and reducing redness

Hydrafacial® Before & After

This lovely patient came to us to as she wanted a more even skin tone and felt her skin needed a boost and lacked hydration and glow. We certainly ticked that box for her.

hydrafacial® With radiofrequency (Hydratight)

Introducing Hydrafacial® with Radiofrequency, to create tighter, brighter, and hydrated skin. The powerful combination of two of our most popular treatments Hydrafacial® followed by the Radiofrequency skin tightening.

A great treatment that hydrates, firms and tightens your skin a non-surgical treatment targeting sagging and loose skin while tackling surface imperfections and hydrating. The benefits of a collagen boosting treatment with immediate results and a healthy glow.

Radiofrequency creates a heat transfer in the deepest layers of the skin which stimulates collagen and elastin production, enhancing the skin tightening results. The heating effects are aided by the deep cellular hydration that was created during the Hydrafacial® giving an amazing lifting and tightening effect.
