Hey everyone, so as you may know here at Innersense Aesthetics we put education and training at the forefront of everything we do (I mean how many clinics do you know that have their own training centre!?) It was with this ethos in mind that we were thrilled to be able to send 3 of our Aesthetic Practitioners to Manchester to complete their advanced HydraFacial training!! In the lovely Hilton Double Tree of all places, very swish indeed! Now we’ve been offering this facial treatment for some time and if you’ve seen our previous blogs, you’ll know we recently introduced a 2nd machine to our Wetherby clinic. Due to the high demand of this service it was a no brainer to send the team to the advanced training to cover the BODY! As you can only imagine we are so excited to let you all know what we learnt, and we can’t wait to start offering these amazing advanced body treatments! So, lets recap – What IS a Hydra facial? A HydraFacial is a non-invasive skin resurfacing and hydrating procedure. It is innovative in that the “vortex suction” tool works like microdermabrasion to exfoliate the skin and remove impurities, but without using crystals or abrasive chemicals to do so. It literally just uses suction like a vacuum to get rid of dead skin, clogged pores, and reveal more radiant new skin. A HydraFacial can treat several skin concerns, like fine lines, acne, hyperpigmentation and sun damage. Whether you have concerns with congestion on your back or pigmentation on your hands, we have you covered. Our trainer, Banu was incredibly knowledgeable and rather inspiring to say the least, after a morning of theory and product knowledge, we were thrown right into the practical session. Let us guide you through this treatment. We start with lymphatic drainage (Detox) which is incredibly relaxing, we then move on to a deep cleanse followed by exfoliation and then an acid peel. After removing any blackheads and congestion the entire back is then drenched with hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate the skin! To finish, an application of hyaluronic moisturiser is massaged into the back which leaves the skin wonderfully hydrated, clean and fresh, with a summer glow. I mean, does it get much better that that? During the practical training session we also mastered the back treatment it was time to move on to the hands, feet and décolletage. Over these areas we find that age spots on the back of the hands, crepy décolletage, and dry feet are just a few concerns. The results are incredible and some instant. Courses are available for optimum results. We all truly had a fab day and learnt so much, we just can’t wait to start delivering these amazing treatments.
