Hydrafacial is the latest non-invasive skin resurfacing treatment. It combines deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration (hyaluronic acid) and powerful antioxidant protection, as well as using red LED light in the final stage to stimulate collagen and elastin production. For the optimum results, we recommend a course of one treatment per week for six weeks, but after only one treatment you will notice that your skin feels firm, plump and that people comment on your healthy glow.
This treatment is a favourite with celebrities and skin care professionals because it is soothing, nourishing, non-invasive and gives instant results. This is the perfect choice if you want to look for your best for a special occasion or red carpet event. At Waterhouse Young, we always enjoy seeing brides-to-be who want to look radiant for their big day.
"For great skin this summer, the key is to think ahead! If you want your face to look tip top, then head down to Waterhouse Young. Expect your face to glow the after their HydraFacial, as if your thirsty skin has had a big drink."
“As soon as I entered the Waterhouse Young clinic, I knew that the experience was going to be one to remember. The HydraFacial and Intraceutical Infusion are both divine treatments, they left my skin, face and décolleté feeling healthy, hydrated and glowing – even my fiancé noticed the instant improvement! It was the perfect pre-wedding preparation and I felt amazing on my special day. I’m recommending it to everyone.”
“That was the best treatment I have had! Skin glowing.”
“The Hydrafacial at Waterhouse Young has changed my life! Thanks to Anna the wonderful therapist who treated me…I’ll see you soon :))”
"My hectic schedule means my face often takes a huge strain. Early morning TV, running in cold blustery winds, not to mention the sleepless nights that come with having young children. I can truly say that the HydraFacial at WaterHouse Young has done wonders for my skin. I often get comments from people on how good my skin looks, especially in the days after I have just had a facial."
“The team at the Waterhouse Young Clinic are lovely. The skin analysis was really helpful to determine my weak areas and to plan a better skin care regime. I had a HydraFacial and have been using the recommended products and can already see a difference with my skin being clearer and brighter. Waterhouse Young have definitely just become my must-have ritual. I would certainly recommend people – in fact I already have.”
"I'd never had a skin treatment as such before but felt motivated to do so as my face was ageing faster than I liked - particularly obvious at work and definitely after several nights of entertaining clients! EndyMed with HydraFacials have been a revelation."

What is HydraFacial and how does it work?
Hydrafacial is a non-invasive skin resurfacing and rejuvenating treatment, which combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration and antioxidant protection. It is less abrasive than microdermabrasion and delivers significantly better results. It’s also soothing, moisturising and non-invasive.
During the treatment we use a special hand piece to remove dead skin cells and impurities in the skin, whilst infusing it with cleansing, hydrating, and antioxidant serums. We finish by shining red LED lights on to the skin to boost its circulation, reduce redness and irritation, and to stimulate collagen and elastin production.
HydraFacial gives instant results and leaves you with hydrated skin and a more youthful appearance. You can apply make-up right after the treatment and you won’t need to do anything special afterwards or take time off work.
What happens during a treatment?
During your HydraFacial treatment, we will use a series of special tools, called HydroPeel tips, to remove dead skin cells and impurities in your skin, while infusing it with cleansing, hydrating, and moisturising serums.
Each HydroPeel tip has multiple edges that exfoliate the skin. The tip is designed to create a vortex effect, which easily dislodges and removes impurities in the skin, while simultaneously treating it with hydrating serums and antioxidants. We pass the tip over your skin several times to get even results.
We’ll begin the Hydrafacial treatment with cleansing and exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and reveal the healthy new skin beneath. A painless vacuum extraction removes impurities from your pores.
We can also use a glycolic and salicylic acid peel, depending on your skin condition, but we would discuss this with you in advance if we feel this should be part of your unique treatment plan.
The final stage is hydration. We’ll infuse your skin with antioxidants and hyaluronic acid (a natural substance found in the body) to hydrate, nourish and protect it. We blend the treatment serums specifically for your skin condition.
Finally, we will shine red LED lights on to your skin to aid circulation, reduce redness and irritation, and to stimulate collagen and elastin production. For acne-prone skin, we use blue LED lights to help fight bacteria.
What can HydraFacial be used to treat?
HydraFacial is ideal for treating fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and oily and acne-prone skin, as well as general rejuvenation of the skin.
Will my treatment hurt?
Not at all. From our own experience and that of clients, a HydraFacial feels like a cool paintbrush moving over your face.
How long will my Hydrafacial treatment take?
Since this is a mechanical treatment, it is fast and efficient and typically takes between 30 and 40 minutes.
How much does the HydraFacial cost?
We will discuss your treatment options and proposed treatment plan during your initial consultation, including a full breakdown of the costs. Prices are £230 for a single treatment.
