What is Hydratite?

Hydratite at MediZen, Sutton Coldfield combines the advantages of two of our most popular treatments to give your face both a fresh, radiant glow plus tighter, firmer and younger-looking skin.

As a stand alone treatment, the HydraFacial is a skin health procedure that is designed to remove impurities from the skin whilst pumping essential nutrients in. Meanwhile, eTwo uses radiofrequency technology to create heat in the deeper layers of skin, and stimulate collagen formation to give a tightening effect (see ‘What is eTwo Skin Tightening` for more details). Because the eTwo Sublime treatment employs moisture within the skin to create the heat, the HydraFacial is able to enhance these effects thanks to its hydrating properties.

The Hydratite is ideal for people who feel that they’ve lost that elasticity, volume & healthy glow in their face or other areas. HydraFacial and Radio Frequency combination treatment can be done on any skin type, and we have been amazed by the results that can be achieved with this combination treatment.

Your Hydratite Experience 

Before Hydratite 

Before you decide to have our Hydratite skin treatment, we invite you to visit our medically led clinic in Sutton Coldfield, with easy transport links to surrounding areas such as Walsall, Lichfield, Tamworth and Birmingham. One of our skin health professionals will assess your skin prior to treatment, to be sure that Hydratite (our HydraFacial and Skin Tightening combination) is the most effective treatment for you. Our expert will discuss with you what kind of results you would like to achieve, and will explain the whole treatment process to ensure that you have all the information before you make a decision.

During Hydratite 

Skin tightening and HydraFacial combined treatment takes place in one of our modern treatment rooms, and a full treatment lasts an hour a half.

Step 1: The treatment starts with relaxing Lymphatic drainage, which stimulates the Lymph flow, removes toxins and bathes the skin with fresh lymph fluid. Following this, the skin is then simultaneously exfoliated and deep cleansed using HydraFacial’s patented Vortex cleaning process, delivering tailored serums such as botanical cleansers and glucosamine deeply into the skin. This stage makes HydraFacial one of the best treatments for improving puffiness under the eyes.

Step 2: A light glycolic brightening solution is then infused into the skin to stimulate collagen and soften any blockages before we perform an extraction to purge pores of any debris, impurities and blackheads. We are able to remove dead cells and improve congestion, even in difficult-to-reach areas such as the corners of the nose. When the treatment is complete, you’ll even be able to see the amount of dirt that was removed from your skin inside the serum collector!

Step 3: The radio frequency stage is delivered next. The top dead layer of the skin has been removed with the HydraFacial, allowing the Radio Frequency waves to penetrate more effectively into the skin.

The cleansed pores are now able to tighten as a result of the Radio Frequency and the main collagen tightening and stimulation effect of the Radio Frequency is enhanced due to the increased hydration in the skin. Radio Frequency heats the water molecules in the skin, which in turn heats the collagen cells. With more hydration in the skin, heat can be created and sustained for longer.

Step 4: The skin is then treated with the “Liquid Gold” of the HydraFacial where a blend of antioxidants, horse chestnut seed extract and hyaluronic acid are vortex infused. This further hydrates the skin, cools down any discomfort from the Radio Frequency, and protects the skin from environmental damage.

Step 5: Finally the skin is treated to Infrared and Red LED light treatment to stimulate further collagen and give you a healthy glow!

After Hydratite 

After treatment, you may find that the skin becomes flushed or red, with a heated sensation for a short while. We provide creams and cooling to give you comfort before and after the treatment. Most people will need around 3 treatments 1 month apart, but there is no limit to how many you can have. Over a period of several months, your skin will regenerate itself, feeling clearer, smoother and plumper, whilst also firmer and lifted. 

Is Hydratite suitable for me? 

We've seen some remarkable results from this dual treatment of HydraFacial skin rejuvenation and eTwo Sublime Skin Tightening, hugely enhancing the effects of these two procedures alone. We recommend that you book a free consultation with us at MediZen clinic in Sutton Coldfield to find out whether Hydratite is the best treatment for your requirements. 

Hydratite Side Effects 

Side effects are very minimal, aside from some minor redness or a heated feeling (similar to sunburn). The HydraFacial section of the treatment is not suitable if an active skin infection such as herpes simplex, i.e. cold sores are present. Those with a history of irregular skin healing or those who have taken isotretinoin (Roaccutane®) within the last 6 months are also not advised to undergo treatment.
