Dawn Wilson tries out the innovative Guinot Hydraderm Cellular Energy Machine, a new addition to the acclaimed Hàna Beauty Clinic in Whitley Bay.
It’s perfectly natural to want to look as youthful as you feel inside. It is also important to know you have anti-ageing options that don’t involve surgery, expense or pain. Hydraderm Cellular Energy facials are an alternative to aesthetic medicine, such as Botox or fillers, with its range of anti-ageing, clinically proven treatments using a combination of Dynamic Ionisation, Thermal Energy and Lifting Stimulation.
I was invited along to Hàna Beauty Clinic by Emma, the salon owner, to try this innovative new treatment. The clinic has yet again been awarded the status of Guinot Crown Salon 2017. This coveted title celebrates the highest achieving Guinot salons and spas in the UK and Ireland who demonstrate success, dedication and loyalty to the brand.
By visiting a Crown Salon, clients can be confident that they are choosing a Guinot salon of the highest distinction with flawless principles in environment, customer care and treatment expertise, so I knew I was in good hands!
My treatment began with a consultation on any issues I had with my skin, so Emma could target these areas. I have combination skin, but some really dry patches on my cheeks due to cold weather and central heating.
Emma then left me to remove my top and lie on the bed, covering myself with a towel. She then began with a soothing welcome massage around neck and shoulders, followed by a thorough Cleanse and exfoliation. Next was the first step using the cellular energy machine, where Emma applied bespoke serum gels to my face, eyes, neck and décolleté. The gels were then massaged into my skin using metal rollers.
Emma said that I might sometimes feel a tiny little charge of electricity over more sensitive areas however I feel nothing except the tiniest sensation under my nose, not remotely painful. These electrical charges cause the serums to be pushed into the skin and the current (dynamic ionisation) causes ‘chaos ‘ within the cells waking them up, helping to regenerate and plump up the skin. Extraction of blocked pores/blackheads then occurs.
The lift part of the facial is next, with lymphatic drainage to remove toxins from the skin. Emma used the machine to stimulate my facial muscles, which tones and lifts muscles (this part can be done as a facial on its own as an intensive non-surgical face lift course). I could really feel my muscles contracting, so I knew it must be working!
The final step was perfect for decongesting the skin, increasing the circulation and increasing energy within the cells, in other words giving you a real boost!
Oxygenating cream is massaged into the skin with heated ‘mini iron ‘ using thermal energy. This step was really soothing.
Finally, Emma cleansed off all the products applied an eye and firming face mask, whilst giving me a wonderful hand and arm massage.
Afterwards my skin was glowing, fresh and smooth, I looked rejuvenated and rested! I’m still feeling the after effects a few days later, much longer than I’ve felt before from a facial.
The cost of the facial I received was £92, and definitely worth the money, but prices start from as little as £50 for the Lift Facial, and they can be tailored to meet your specific needs. I would recommend giving the girls at Hana a call and they can advise you as to the best option for you.
A course of treatments is advised for long lasting results, but a one off can be booked if you need a pick me up. (although I guarantee you’ll be so pleased with how your skin looks and feels you’ll really want to book more!)
