Welcome to the No 4 Clinic in Elgin, where we believe that healthy and radiant skin is within reach for everyone. Today, we’re excited to introduce you to the revolutionary Hydrafacial treatment, a cutting-edge skincare procedure that promises to transform your skin and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. In this article, we’ll delve into the top 10 questions about Hydrafacial, addressing everything you need to know about this remarkable treatment.

What is a Hydrafacial treatment, and how does it work?

The Hydrafacial treatment is a non-invasive, multi-step procedure designed to cleanse, exfoliate, extract, and hydrate the skin. It combines the benefits of hydradermabrasion, chemical peels, and automated extractions to provide immediate and long-lasting results. Using a specialized device, the treatment works by delivering a blend of cleansing, moisturising, and nourishing serums to your skin, simultaneously removing impurities and dead skin cells.

What skin concerns can be addressed with a Hydrafacial?

Hydrafacial is a versatile treatment suitable for all skin types and addresses various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, congested pores, acne-prone skin, uneven skin tone, and dryness. Whether you’re seeking to combat signs of aging or simply rejuvenate your complexion, a Hydrafacial can be customized to meet your specific needs.

Is the Hydrafacial treatment painful?

Not at all! Hydrafacial is a painless and soothing treatment. Many individuals find it to be a relaxing experience, similar to a gentle massage for the face. You may experience a mild sensation during the extraction process, but overall, the procedure is well-tolerated and comfortable.

How long does a typical Hydrafacial treatment take?

One of the many advantages of Hydrafacial is its efficiency. The treatment typically takes around 30-45 minutes, making it an ideal option for those with busy schedules or anyone seeking a quick pick-me-up for their skin.

Are there any side effects or downtime associated with Hydrafacial?

Unlike some other more invasive treatments, Hydrafacial has minimal side effects and no downtime. You may experience temporary redness or a slight tingling sensation immediately after the procedure, but these effects typically subside within a few hours. You can immediately resume your daily activities and apply makeup if desired.

How soon will I see results, and how long do they last?

The beauty of Hydrafacial lies in its immediate and visible results. You’ll notice a significant improvement in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall radiance right after the first session. For optimal and long-lasting results, we recommend a series of treatments, as each session builds upon the last. With regular maintenance sessions, your skin’s health and appearance can be sustained over time.

How often should I have a Hydrafacial treatment?

The frequency of Hydrafacial treatments depends on your individual skincare goals and the condition of your skin. For most individuals, monthly treatments are recommended to maintain optimal skin health and address specific concerns. However, our skilled professionals at No 4 Clinic will assess your skin during a consultation and tailor a treatment plan that suits your unique needs.

Can Hydrafacial be combined with other treatments?

Absolutely! Hydrafacial can be complemented with other skincare procedures to enhance your results. For instance, combining Hydrafacial with LED light therapy, micro-needling, or customized serums can further target specific concerns and maximize the benefits of the treatment.

Who is an ideal candidate for a Hydrafacial treatment?

Hydrafacial is suitable for almost everyone, regardless of age or skin type. Whether you have sensitive skin, oily skin, dry skin, or a combination of these, a Hydrafacial can be tailored to address your specific needs. It’s a versatile treatment that can benefit individuals looking to improve their skin’s overall health and appearance.

“Hi Nichola, I don’t know if you remember but I had tear trough treatment back in November. I just wanted to say a huge thank you! I was initially fairly pleased with the results but now am delighted! The darkness has all but gone even without make-up. I am so much more confident than before.”


“My wrinkled lined face caused me great distress for many years! An opportunity arose to attend an open day with Dr Nichola Maasdorp. I was introduced to different treatments to reduce these lines. Following treatment my lines are smoother and I am very pleased with the results.
I would recommend facial enhancement treatment with Dr Nichola Maasdorp.”
