Hydra Facial treatment uses the power of a stream of water to soften the skin and remove dirt in just 30 minutes, "cleansing", removing keratin, "peeling", and removing excess sebum to remove pores. We perform "deep cleansing" to clean and "moisturize" to moisturize .
It is said that by eliminating old keratin on the skin surface and excess sebum in the pores, which are difficult to remove by daily face washing, the skin becomes smooth immediately after the treatment, and you can feel that the makeup has improved.
Hydra Facial is a peeling machine developed by Edge Systems of the United States, and its safety and effectiveness have been recognized by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration), which is the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare of Japan, as well as the CE (EU Member State Standards). ..
The reason why Hydra Facial removes stains even though it is painless and less irritating during the procedure is that each chemical solution rich in beauty ingredients and patented peeling and cleansing are used in three steps. It is located at the tip of the machine to enhance the effect .
Hydra facial treatments use a stream of water, but the treatment uses more than just water. We use a chemical solution called "skin solution" that contains antioxidants, moisturizing ingredients, and soothing ingredients .
Each skin solution is used for each of the three hydra facial treatment steps.
Step1: Deep cleansing + peeling
Solutions "Activ-4 ™" and "Glysal ™": The former contains ingredients that remove dirt and improve wrinkles, and the latter contains ingredients that remove dead skin cells.
Step2: Pore care + moisturizing
Solution "Beta-HD ™": Contains ingredients that remove keratin plugs and excess sebum and moisturize
Step3: Essence introduction + protection
Solution "Antiox + ™": Contains antioxidants that moisturize and soothe the skin
Hydra Facial is performed by attaching a patented hydro-peel tip with a special spiral structure to the tip of a hand-held part called a handpiece.
The spiral shape of the tip creates a spiral stream of water that moisturizes and sucks at the same time, while floating sebum and dirt to cleanse deep into the pores .
In addition, multiple edges (blades) attached to the tip rub the skin to peel off old keratin. The removed dirt and dead skin cells are sucked and discharged together with the dirty skin solution waste liquid from the hole dedicated to the outlet.
The tips are disposable, and blue tips, light blue tips, and clear tips are used according to the Hydra Facial treatment process.

Normally, use Gly 7.5% Sal 2% pH 3.4, and pinpoint Gly 15% Sal 1.5% pH 3.1 for areas where you want to remove dirt firmly.
The nose is a part of the face that has many pores (sebaceous glands) and is prone to excessive secretion of sebum. When old keratin and sebum accumulate in the pores and become dirty, they become keratin plugs and cover the pores. Over time in this state, sebum will oxidize and appear as black spots.
Hydra Facial also removes sebum that has accumulated in the pores and turned black. In addition, it is said that when the turnover cycle is adjusted by Hydra Facial, the old stratum corneum is peeled off, and it is difficult for sebum pores to remain due to the pores being blocked.
Hydra Facial can be applied not only to the face but also to the upper arms and back. The back has many pores (sebaceous glands) and sebum secretion is active, so it is a part where acne can easily repeat. Hydra Facial eliminates dead skin cells, dirt, and sebum clogging in pores, leading to improvement of back acne.
For example, removing the old keratin wall with a hydra facial before light (IPL) treatment to lighten age spots and improve redness makes it easier to target the red pigments of melanin and hemoglobin that cause age spots and redness. I will.
If you use a hydra facial to thoroughly remove dirt before cosmetology such as light (IPL), laser, and radio frequency (RF), it will be easier for energy sources such as light, laser, and radio frequency to reach you than if you are treated with old dead skin cells remaining. It is not to become.
In addition to irradiation treatment, it is said that the effects of iontophoresis and phonophoresis, which allow the active ingredients of the skin such as vitamin C and tranexamic acid to penetrate into the skin, will increase.
The skin has a three-layer structure consisting of the epidermis layer, the dermis layer, and the subcutaneous tissue from the outside, but the outermost epidermis is further the stratum corneum, the stratum granulosum, and the stratum spinosum. , It is divided into four layers, the basal layer.
When new cells are created in the basal layer at the bottom of the epidermis layer, they rise up and eventually become dirt and peel off. The cycle from the birth of cells in the epidermal layer to the peeling off is called skin metabolism or turnover.
Skin cells are constantly being reborn with a turnover of approximately 28 days .
A normal turnover cycle is required to maintain healthy skin without dead skin cells and excess sebum buildup. However, the turnover cycle is unexpectedly easily disturbed by the effects of lifestyle habits such as sleep and eating habits in addition to aging, and external stimuli such as sunburn by ultraviolet rays and drying by air conditioning .
If the turnover is slow, the stratum corneum becomes dirty and difficult to peel off, so the stratum corneum becomes thick. Conversely, if the turnover is too early, cells will come out on the surface of the skin before it has sufficient functions to protect the skin. It will end up. The following skin problems are caused by such disturbance of the turnover cycle.
Even if you spend a lot of time washing your face with soap every day, it will not be enough to clean your pores. Dirt and dead skin that cannot be removed by washing your face will accumulate more and more if left alone. Even if you brush your teeth every day, just as a dentist regularly cleans your teeth to keep your teeth healthy, cleaning your skin also makes it easier for moisturizing ingredients such as lotion to penetrate and is healthy. You can keep your skin.
It is said that when the hydra facial removes dirt from the skin and the turnover cycle is adjusted, the skin condition is less likely to cause acne, fine wrinkles, age spots and dullness .
In addition to hydra facials, chemical peels are another way to remove dead skin cells and regulate the skin turnover cycle. Chemical peels apply chemicals such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid to the skin to dissolve and wipe off the dead skin cells, but some people may experience dryness or rough skin due to the chemicals not matching the skin or removing old dead skin cells.
Hydra facials, on the other hand, have a very short amount of time for the peeling fluid to be present on the skin and dissolve the dead skin cells. The water flow created by the specially constructed tip and handpiece removes dead skin cells and stubborn stains, minimizing irritation to the skin. Hydra Facial is characterized by not only removing dead skin cells and dirt, but also moisturizing with beauty essence ingredients .
