HydraFacial – The hard-working treatment for instant results.

By Raj Phull 12th July 2019 Category: Advice

HydraFacial is the latest treatment everyone is talking about. And it’s not just the A-listers who are opting for this wonder treatment. Sk:n has an increasing number of male clients are seeing the benefits and returning to us time and time again. So why is HydraFacial so popular amongst men?


  1. It’s not like any other facial

When you think of a facial, you probably think of a spa or salon with relaxing music, incense burning and a feeling of being pampered. Not that you won’t get a pampered feeling from HydraFacial, because you will. But HydraFacial is so much more than a facial. It’s an experience and a confidence booster focusing on the unique philosophy of ‘Skin Health for Life’. There are five treatments to choose from depending on your skin type which generally follow the same principles – a six-step process which gives many more benefits than just a facial. Steps include detox, cleansing and exfoliating, brightening agent, extraction, hydration and rejuvenation.

  1. Improves skin health

A recent Mintel study found that improving skin health is the number one driver for men, with 30% stating this was their primary focus.  HydraFacial will improve overall skin health and stage one kicks off with a skin detox – a lymphatic draining technique which helps increase circulation eliminating toxins.

  1. Consistent and immediate results

Our male clients like treatments which give consistent results, there is no downtime and you can see a difference instantly. A recent study carried out by Realself (2018) found that life events are the main influencers for adults in the UK to pursue aesthetic treatments with the top reason amongst men being starting a new job. HydraFacial will give your skin an instant glow. Step two will remove dead skin cells and gently lift impurities and step three includes a gentle glycolic and salicylic solution which will loosen debris from your pores, brightening your skin.

  1. HydraFacial can prevent spots

Spots were also found to be men’s greatest skincare issue. 46% of men said they feel self-conscious if they have a spot on their face, rising to 63% of men aged 16-24. At sk:n we find a lot of men prefer to invest in preventing spots rather than treating them. Step four of the process will remove blackheads and impurities in congested areas, extracted using honey extract and salicylic acid.

  1. Maximum hydration

Dehydrated skin can be caused by lack of water, diet, incorrect product use, the weather and so on. HydraFacial’s step five combines hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and peptides to replenish, plump up and hydrate your skin.

  1. Treats lines and wrinkles

The same study also found that 22% of males worry about wrinkles. Step six in the process is rejuvenation, where an LED light is used to stimulate collagen and also reduces redness, leaving you with instantly glowing skin.

  1. HydraFacial can treat acne

Acne is one of the most common skin problems we see at sk:n. In the UK 80% of people aged 11 to 30 are affected by acne and 3 million people over the age of 30 are also affected. HydraFacial has two treatments specifically designed to treat acne which follow the same six-stage process as Skin Health for Life and include an additional step – a Glysal Peel which will regulate oil levels caused by excess sebum.
