Aqua/Hydra-Dermabration, is the word ‘hydrate’ meaning to ‘cause to take up moisture. The special tip, which is the unique part of the Aqua/Hydra-Dermabration Facial devices, is known as the peel Tip. The treatment works differently from traditional microdermabrasion due to the spiral shape of the tip, which has multiple abrasive edges, meaning that the skin is exfoliated several times as the tip is moved over it in a planning motion, whilst the serums applied soften the skin and sebum (skin oils) making it much easier to extract away impurities.
