HYDROGEN WATER 

Hydrogen water is regular water that has been enriched with additional ‘free’ hydrogen
molecules.
The Japanese have known about the antioxidant benefits of hydrogen water for decades and recent studies* have proven its efficacy in reducing wrinkles, skin blotches and excess oiliness, improving skin hydration, and promoting cell renewal.
Homedics Refresh cleansing tool, creates hydrogen molecules through an ionising process which takes place as the water moves through the window at the back of the tool.

WHAT TO EXPECT 

Hydradermabrasion is a deep cleansing treatment which will typically cause temporary reddening of the skin. We therefore recommend testing on a small area first to determine how your skin will react. For most people the redness can take an hour or longer to subside, so treatments are usually best done in the evening before going to bed.

Avoid using on the sensitive skin around the eyes and avoid any areas of inflammation.

For a full list of cautions please refer to the Safeguards section below. 

FACIAL TREATMENT ROUTINE 

Before use: prepare your skin by removing any make up and following your usual cleansing routine.

STEP 1
Rotate the water tank clockwise to remove it.

FACIAL TREATMENT ROUTINE

IMPORTANT

  • Keep the device constantly moving. Stopping in one spot for too long can cause bruising.
  • Do only one pass per area per treatment.
  • Pull skin taut for a smoother pass.

As treatment continues the ‘clean water’ side of the tank will empty and ‘dirty water’ will collect in the other side. Once the clean water side is empty, switch off the device.

AFTER TREATMENT 

  • Turn off the device by pressing the power button.
  • Remove the water tank, empty it, and run a cleaning cycle as described below.
  • Wash the cleansing tips and in warm soapy water, rinse well and allow to dry.
  • Wash your face with cold water to remove any remaining dead skin cells and then apply your preferred moisturiser.
  • NOTE: Avoid using AHA (acid based) moisturisers on the day of treatment
  • Depending on your skin type, you may experience some reddening or increased sensitivity after treatment. This is perfectly normal and usually subsides within a few hours.
  • Avoid direct sun exposure after treatment, consider applying a stronger sunscreen as required.

CLEANING CYCLE
