What is Hydrafacial?
HydraFacial is a no-downtime, non-surgical skin resurfacing treatment that achieves the results of an advanced facial in just 30 minutes. The secret to HydraFacial is a patented spiral tip that can simultaneously exfoliate, clear blocked pores and deliver nourishing serums. Immediately after treatment you will see an instantly noticeable improvement in skin tone and texture.
HydraFacial delivers long-term skin health and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.
Am I a suitable candidate for Skin Tightening?
This treatment is suitable for mature individuals who currently experiencing signs of ageing such as sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines. For younger individuals, this treatment can be used for preventative measures against ageing as it helps boost collagen production levels.
How long will it take for me to see a result after my treatments?
Each procedure is different – our less invasive treatments (such as Microdermabrasion and superficial Cosmedical Grade Peels) give more immediate results, and our more invasive treatments (such as deeper Cosmedical Grade Peels) may take up to a month to see full results. These treatments, however, have more lasting impacts than our less invasive treatments. At your FREE skin consultation, your Skin Therapist will advise on a personalised treatment plan.
What skin tones can have Skin Tightening?
This treatment is suitable for clients with light to medium skin tones (Fitzpatrick 1-4).
Is there any downtime with Skin Tightening?
There is no downtime with this treatment. You may experience some redness and swelling on the treated area, but this completely normal and usually subsides within 3-5 days. You may continue to have a warm sensation on the treated areas for 24-48 hours after your treatment. We advise you to follow the correct aftercare directions as provided by your Skin Therapist.
Will chemical peels literally make my skin peel off?
This will depend on the type of peel used, the condition of the skin, medication was taken and general health and well-being. Certain medications and health issues may be a contradiction to a chemical peel as they can increase adverse side effects. Redness, inflammation, and mild to moderate peeling is usual for 1 – 5 days post peel. The stronger the peel, the more intense the redness, peeling, and downtime.
Why do I need to use aftercare products?
The importance of preparation and aftercare is to ensure that you receive maximum results with minimal side effects to the treatments we offer. This includes our skin and laser treatments and can even be applied to cosmetic injections. For example, our 5 a-day home care pack has everything you need for before and after your treatments. We'll tailor the 5 institut products based on your skin type and the treatments you opt for. institut is founded on the belief that serious, high-end skincare should be accessible to everyone.

What will my skin look like when I walk out of the clinic - will I need time off work?
Each person’s skin is different – so your response will vary, but the majority of our skin treatments require no downtime. Your Skin Therapist will take you through a post-treatment care regime that will fast-track your results.
How do I maximise the benefits of my skin treatments?

Based on a medically and clinically proven blend of AHA, Retinoids, Vitamin C, Peptides, Antioxidants and SPF technology, cosmedicals are not only reliant on a potent percentage of active ingredients but utilise carefully formulated base formulas, encapsulation technology, and penetration enhancers to deliver benefits as deep as possible into the skin.
Am I suitable 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 are the benefits of a Hydrafacial?
Many clients report seeing instantly visible improvements in skin tone or texture after just one treatment. The smooth results and hydration may last 5 to 7 days or even longer after the first treatment. As you have additional Hydrafacial treatments the result will last for longer each time. We recommend one treatment per month 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.
Will Skin Needling help with acne scarring and stretch marks?
Yes. Skin Needling promotes the production of collagen and it's this collagen production that builds the tissue within the stretch marks back up. The result is that the stretch mark and acne scarring indentation is reduced and so does the colour of these scars, in some cases making them disappear completely.
We treat all areas of the body including; the face, neck, back, breasts, decolletage, hips, stomach, and hands.
