Hydrafacial Syndeo is an effective skincare treatment developed for a variety of skin concerns. Hydradermabrasion targets conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, clogged pores, and even skin dehydration. Its process includes exfoliation, deep cleansing, extraction, and a custom serum infusion to address your specific skin needs.
This treatment is suitable for most skin types and is designed to improve overall skin appearance by focusing on your unique skin health. Because of the diversified list of benefits it provides, many patients experience what we call the after-treatment “glow,” where their skin is noticeably brighter, healthier, and more likely to stand out.

How Does Hydrafacial Work?
Hydrafacial is a state-of-the-art skincare treatment combining cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection. At the Centre for Medical Aesthetics we have the newest Hydrafacial Syndeo device. While the exact steps will change depending on the package you select, you can generally break down the procedure into the following steps:
Step 1: Exfoliation
A gentle exfoliation of the surface layer of the skin is conducted, removing dead skin cells to reveal a more radiant layer underneath. Since Hydrafacial uses water to flush away the debris that is removed from your skin, you are able to see the improvements to your complexion happen in real-time.
Step 2: Cleansing
A mix of salicylic and glycolic acids is applied for a more thorough cleanse and exfoliation, helping to loosen debris and unclog pores. This step is crucial for preparing the skin for the next phase: extraction.
Step 3: Extraction
We can gently remove blackheads and impurities from deeper within the pores through the device’s vortex suction technology. This process is effective and comfortable, avoiding the harshness and discomfort of manual extraction.
Step 4: Infusion
We apply hydrating serums rich in antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients are essential for nourishing the skin, promoting elasticity, and providing long-lasting hydration.
The serum you receive will be customised to fit your skin’s specific needs, helping to promote noticeable improvement.
Through this comprehensive approach, Hydrafacial not only improves the appearance of the skin but also encourages its underlying health.
Why Would We Use Hydrafacial Syndeo?
In today’s fast-paced world, where environmental factors and lifestyle choices can significantly impact our skin, effective and gentle skincare treatments are more important than ever. Hydrafacial meets this need by offering a comprehensive solution that addresses multiple skin concerns in one treatment.
Hydrafacial also stands out for its gentle approach. Unlike more aggressive treatments, Hydrafacial offers a more soothing experience without the discomfort and downtime. This makes it ideal for those seeking noticeable results without disrupting their daily routine.
Since Hydrafacial tackles so many components of skin health at once, it is a great option for someone who is beginning their skincare journey and is interested in developing a more regular skincare routine. Our ability to use this treatment as a Swiss army knife or a method of creating a blank canvas for future treatment is one of the factors that sets it and us apart in the market.
Am I a Good Candidate for Hydrafacial?
At The Centre for Medical Aesthetics, we use Hydrafacial because of its broad applicability, making it an excellent option for most individuals seeking to enhance their skin health. If you’re someone who experiences common skin developments like fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, dullness, or oily skin, Hydrafacial is an excellent treatment option.
Those with sensitive skin often find Hydrafacial to be a uniquely suitable option, as it is less abrasive than other skin treatments. The procedure is designed to be gentle, minimising the risk of irritation while still delivering effective results.
However, you should always keep in mind that there are certain conditions where caution is advised. Individuals with active rashes, sunburns, or rosacea should consult with one of our skincare professionals before undergoing Hydrafacial. Likewise, if you have a history of allergic reactions to any ingredients used in Hydrafacial, it’s essential to discuss this with us to help you find a suitable alternative that fits your needs.
It is also vital that you have a clear understanding of what results Hydrafacial can provide. As a nonsurgical, minimally invasive option, you will never be able to achieve surgical-level results. We can show you plenty of before and after photos to show you the skin health improvement you can expect.
Ultimately, the best way to determine if Hydrafacial is suitable for you is through a consultation with our staff here at The Centre for Medical Aesthetics. We can assess your skin type, listen to your concerns, and advise whether Hydrafacial ultimately aligns with your skincare goals.
How Should I Prepare for Hydrafacial Treatment?
Preparing for your Hydrafacial treatment at The Centre for Medical Aesthetics is a straightforward process designed to ensure you get the most out of your session. Here are some guidelines we provide to our patients to prepare them for treatment:
- Avoid Exfoliating Treatments: In the week leading up to your appointment, we advise avoiding any exfoliating treatments, including both physical exfoliants (like scrubs) and chemical exfoliants (like acids or retinol). This precaution helps prevent any potential over-sensitivity or irritation of the skin.
- No Waxing or Use of Depilatory Creams: Avoid waxing or using depilatory creams on your face for at least 48 hours before your treatment. These methods can make the skin more sensitive, which might react adversely to the Hydrafacial process.
- Protect Your Skin from the Sun: Minimise sun exposure and do not use tanning beds for at least a week before your treatment. If you must be in the sun, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
- Stay Hydrated: Hydration is key for healthy skin. Drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your Hydrafacial can enhance the treatment’s efficacy.
- Inform Your Aesthetician of Skin Concerns: If you have any specific skin concerns or conditions, like acne or rosacea, inform your aesthetician prior to the treatment. This information will help them tailor the treatment to your needs.
- Discuss Your Skincare Products: Bring a list of your current skincare products to discuss with our team. We can advise if any of these products should be avoided before or after your treatment.
- Relax and Be Comfortable: On the day of your appointment, come with a clean face, free of makeup. Wear comfortable clothing and arrive with a relaxed mindset.
By following these simple steps, you can ensure your skin is optimally prepared for the Hydrafacial treatment.
What to Expect From Hydrafacial Recovery
After your Hydrafacial treatment at The Centre for Medical Aesthetics, you’ll be pleased to find that the recovery process is straightforward, with minimal to no downtime required. This means you can immediately resume your daily activities, making it a perfect choice for those who wish to avoid time away from work and other obligations.
Post-treatment care is crucial for maintaining the results of your Hydrafacial. Keeping the skin well-hydrated is essential; using a gentle moisturiser and drinking plenty of water can help. Equally important is protecting your skin from the sun. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher to shield your skin, as it will be more sensitive to UV exposure. For the first 24-48 hours, we advise you to avoid harsh skincare products that contain retinol, acids, or exfoliating agents.
Some clients may experience mild redness or a sense of tightness in their skin immediately following the treatment, but these reactions typically subside within a few hours. Our team will provide you with specific post-care instructions, which include recommendations on skincare products, makeup use, and advice on scheduling follow-up treatments. The frequency of these treatments will be based on your skin goals and concerns.
