HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that can be given in as little as 30 minutes. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation.


HydraFacial is our convenient 30 minute, mild, non-invasive procedure using the latest Vortex technology. This treatment extracts dead skin cells providing cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration with the fusion of antioxidants, peptides and hyaluronic acid. This allows the skin to increase its uptake of essential nutrients. HydraFacial can improve fine lines, wrinkles and remove blackheads and impurities. You will see and feel the difference after one treatment.

Your skin is the largest organ of the body and everyday it is exposed to the elements such as the sun, pollution, toxins and stress which damage vital skin cells like collagen and elastin which keep the skin looking fresh and young.

How HydraFacial works

HydraFacial uses vortex technology in the form of spiral tips that use a water base exfoliation. The suction motion of the tips removes dead skin cells and opens pores while stimulating the production of new cells. This treatment does this by nourishing the skin with essential ingredients that help improve the health of your skin in a variety of ways. Your HydraFacial treatment can also be adjusted to deliver additional properties to the skin based on your individual skin needs, including lymphatic drainage boosters.

Each one of the 5 stages of the HydraFacial is essential to achieve the optimum outcome. By combining exfoliation and deep cleansing the skin is refreshed and protected.

Is HydraFacial right for my skin type?

HydraFacial is suitable for all ages and skin types. This clinically proven treatment is effective for skin rejuvenation and immediately creates a long-lasting healthy glow that everyone will compliment.

HydraFacial treatment can be adjusted to target the specific skin needs of all our patients, including sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles and oily or dry skin. Using only a water-based exfoliation method, the non-invasive, mild procedure gives the same results as more aggressive treatments such as microdermabrasion, but without the harsh effects that traditional treatments such as microdermabrasion frequently cause.

Is HydraFacial like microdermabrasion?

The system delivers results comparable to more aggressive treatments without the same level of skin irritation that these traditional treatments cause. The results are a better complexion and improved skin health. Microdermabrasion uses a handheld device that ‘sands’ the skin to get rid of dead skin cells but it does not hydrate the skin. Microdermabrasion often leaves the skin red for longer than 24 hours; HydraFacial involves no downtime. This is because, in contrast to microdermabrasion, HydraFacial does not use crystal technology or hard wands to assist in the exfoliation process so there is no abrasion to the skin tissue. HydraFacial is a gentle procedure removing dead skins cells while infusing nutrients into the skin at the same time. With continued treatment, HydraFacial can reduce the severity of acne, skin pigmentation and poor complexion.

What areas are suitable for HydraFacial treatment?

In addition to the face, HydraFacial can treat the neck, décolletage, back of hands – as well as upper backs and shoulders (typically for those with acne or congested skin).

The latest HydraFacial technology at the Sharp Clinic

Our HydraFacial is the latest model, and so it also features spot LED therapy: 1 Red Lights (630nm & 810nm combined ) and 1 Blue (415 nm). Red light offers deeper infusion of the hyaluronic acids and the antioxidants (applied as the last step) and for further rejuvenation of the skin. Blue LED kills the bacteria that produces acne and congestion. Our machine also features facial and body lymphatic hand pieces. This helps reduce swelling under the eyes and around the ear and neck line. The large hand pieces help reduce superficial swelling that further reduces the build up of cellulite. We also offer more specialised skin booster vials, to customise treatments for superficial pigmentation and fine lines. HydraFacial is a multi stage protocol that includes exfoliation (main ingredient: Glucosamine Hydrochloride and some lactic acid), a light peel (main ingredient: 7.5% Glycolic & Salicylic combination acid), painless deep extractions (using salicylic acid) and lastly an infusion containing 6 potent antioxidants as well as low molecular hyaluronic acid to ensure optimal hydration.

Build skin health for life with regular HydraFacial treatments

With regular HydraFacials, the levels of antioxidants in your skin will build and the results of each treatment last for longer. This non-invasive procedure is so quick it can be done in your lunch break.

The next time you are thinking of pampering yourself with a facial, try HydraFacial and experience the treatment that is adding a new level of rejuvenation with absolutely no surgery or downtime. This treatment combines exfoliation and deep cleansing technology with nourishing anti-oxidants which allows the skin to increase its uptake of essential nutrients.

What research says about HydraFacial

In published studies, HydraFacial® hydradermabrasion technology was clinically proven to be effective for facial rejuvenation. Key findings include:

  • EAfter hydradermabrasion, skin polyphenolic antioxidant levels were increased by 30%. However, manual application of antioxidants alone did not result in an increased level of polyphenolic antioxidants.
  • EA series of hydradermabrasion treatments resulted in epidermal and papillary dermal thickening with deposition of new collagen fibers.
  • EA majority of patients reported significant or noticeable improvements in all of the surveyed skin conditions. Qualitatively, decreased pore size, decreased fine lines, and decreased hyperpigmentation were most commonly observed.
  • ETreatments were also found to enhance the results of light-based skin rejuvenation treatments such as laser and IPL.

What is HydraFacial?

HydraFacial is an invigorating treatment that can be given in as little as 30 minutes. It delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. It offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation. The HydraFacial treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.

Why is HydraFacial good for my skin?

Hydration is the foundation of healthy, radiant skin. Irritation of the skin has been proven to increase signs of aging. HydraFacial is a hydrating and non-irritating treatment.

Am I a candidate for HydraFacial?

The HydraFacial treatment is designed for all skin types. Even the most sensitive skin easily tolerates the HydraFacial treatment. Your physician or skincare professional may choose specific treatment serums and/or customize the treatment for your unique skin conditions and needs. Consult your physician or skincare professional for a skin evaluation and sensitivity test.

What is involved in a HydraFacial treatment?

HydraFacial involves 5 steps for fresh skin:

  1. Cleansing and Exfoliation – dead skin cells are removed to reveal healthy new skin
  2. Acid Peel – this gentle peel helps loosen dirt and debris from pores without irritation
  3. Extractions – painless, automated extractions use vortex suction to clean out pores
  4. Hydration – antioxidants and hyaluronic acid are Vortex-Fused to nourish and protect
  5. Protection – maintain and protect your results

How long does the treatment take? Is there any downtime or pain involved?

Our goal is to help support you in a balanced lifestyle. That’s why HydraFacial is a fast, efficient treatment that takes as little as 30 minutes. You may put on makeup and return to your normal activities right after the treatment since there is no downtime.

What results can be expected from HydraFacial? How many treatments are needed to see results? How long do HydraFacial results last?

Many clients report seeing visible skin refinement and an even, radiant skin tone after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer. We don’t believe in quick fixes, so one treatment per month is recommended for improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots, oily and congested skin. Continued HydraFacial treatments are highly recommended to maintain skin health results.

Why have your HydraFacial therapy at the Sharp Clinic?

It’s important to choose a skin clinic based upon their reputation – and the expertise and credentials of those who work in the clinic. While this treatment doesn’t have to be performed by a doctor, an aesthetic clinic that operates under the guidance of an on-site doctor or surgeon will usually only offer science-based treatments that offer measurable results, performed to the highest standards – offering you peace of mind. All treatments in our Brisbane and Ipswich cosmetic clinics are chosen in consultation with our plastic surgeon, Dr David Sharp, to deliver the best possible results for both our non surgical and surgical patients. Our clinics are medically supervised by Dr Sharp, whose understanding of skin and aesthetics is utilised when developing treatment plans to create sustainable, natural results that are all about enhancing, preventing and treating Queenslanders’ skin.

Can I combine HydraFacial with other treatments or procedures?

Yes. HydraFacial enhances your skin’s health, optimising the way it responds to the other procedures we offer at the Sharp Clinics, such as medical grade Fraxel laser and LED or microneedling treatments – as well as helping to maintain the results of procedures such as facelift, necklift and blepharoplasty surgery.
