What is the Hydrafacial MD?

The Hydrafacial is a machine led super facial which uses a mixture of highly effective quality products and mechanical technology. It is designed to provide your skin with everything science has told us it needs to regenerate healthily and maintain a radiant glow.





How does a Hydrafacial treatment work?

A Hydrafacial works by acting like a reset button for the renewal cycle of your skin. It consists of three main treatment phases. Importantly, the treatment sequence addressed the needs of this renewal cycle in the correct order.




"I love the Hydrafacial. Its leaves my skin feeling like actual skin and not a giant dull wrinkly flake! Cleaning my pores and helping my skin look bright, just what I need. Everyone in Amara is patient and great listeners, and give me the treatment I want and need. Highly recommend."
Lisa, 30, Dublin

Phase 1CleanseYour skin is exfoliated and gently resurfaced with a new, healthy, and even layer of skin brought to the surface.
Gentle Peel
Phase 2ExtractImpurities clogging your skin and pores are chemically and mechanically removed. Your skin is then hydrated with powerful moisturizers.

"I am a long time patient of Amara, and yet again I am thrilled at my results which are immediate. They are calming and professional, exactly what you need if you are nervous. The girls at reception, are super helpful & friendly, can not do enough to help and make you feel at ease."
Natalie, 37, Dublin

What does a Hydrafacial feel like?

A Hydrafacial feels like it works! Your skin will never feel better.

The cleanser and serums leave your skin feeling clean and soft before the mixture of glycolic and salicylic acids clear your skin of debris and excess oil. Here your skin will tingle a bit as you get all the benefits of a peel minus the post peel scaling.

The power vacuum based extraction compliments the peel and you can feel your pores being cleared of debris and congestion. There is a slight tug on your skin as the vacuum nozzle works over your skin. Powerful moisturizers, antioxidants, and peptides added in the final stages leave your skin glowing and feeling soft, gentle and even.






What else can a Hydrafacial do?

There are two additional upgrades available with a Hydrafacial treatment. These can be discussed with your Skin Health Specialist at you pre-treatment consultation.

Lymphatic Drainage
LED Light Treatment
This massage based add-on stimulates your lymphatic system into action, clearing lymph vessels which act like a drainage system for your skin. With these vessels clear, your skin’s ability to undertake the natural processes of good skin health are restored. Blue LED lights directly inhibit bacteria which may cause acne spread or outbreaks in sensitive skin or skin with rosacea.

Red LED lights stimulate your skin’s collagen helping promote strong, healthy, and voluminous skin.





How long does a Hydrafacial take?

The Hydrafacial MD is fully customizable to your skin and schedule. Depending on what your skin needs, Hydrafacials can take as little as 30 mins. Upgrades and add ons can see some Hydrafacials take 90 mins. The standard time for most clients would be 60 mins.

Note – All first time clients will be allocated 90 mins for their first hydrafacial consultation and treatment. This is because it includes a complimentary skin consultation with a skin health specialist. This allows them to deliver you the best treatment possible.





Is a Hydrafacial MD treatment suitable for pregnant women?

Unfortunately, because of the active nature of the ingredients used in this treatment, the Hydrafacial is not suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

It’s also not suitable for –

  • Diabetics
  • People with allergies to shellfish
  • People with allergies to honey
  • People with lactic acid sensitivities
  • Patients currently undertaking cancer treatment
  • People on certain medications (blood thinners and accutane in particular)
  • People with active or recent cold sores
  • People who have had a facial injectable treatment in the previous 2 weeks.






"This is my 3rd Hydrafacial treatment at Amara. So warm and friendly they really care about their clients. My skin feels and looks amazing after each treatment. Amazing clinic, friendly staff. I will be back again next month."
Michelle, 41

Frequently Asked Questions

A Hydrafacial is a cosmetic procedure that utilizes a comprehensive approach to skincare, incorporating multiple steps within a single session. This non-invasive treatment involves a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, extraction, hydration, and antioxidant protection to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. By addressing various skin concerns simultaneously, a Hydrafacial aims to deliver optimal results in a convenient and efficient manner.


A Hydrafacial treatment is typically performed on the face, but it can also be done on other areas of the body, such as the neck, chest, or hands. The treatment is tailored to target specific concerns and areas of the skin that require hydration, deep cleansing, or rejuvenation.

A Hydrafacial treatment primarily focuses on the outermost layers of the skin, including the epidermis and upper dermis. It uses a gentle yet effective approach to cleanse the skin, extract impurities, and deliver nourishing serums to enhance skin hydration and overall appearance. While it may not penetrate as deeply as certain invasive procedures, it provides noticeable results with minimal downtime or discomfort.

The amount of product used during a Hydrafacial treatment can vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and the areas being treated. The treatment involves the application of specially formulated serums that are delivered to the skin through the Hydrafacial device. The exact quantity of product used may depend on factors such as the size of the treatment area and the desired outcome.


The cost of Hydrafacial treatments can vary depending on several factors, including the geographic location, the expertise of the skincare professional or clinic, and any additional add-ons or customized options chosen.


The Hydrafacial procedure is generally well-tolerated and comfortable for most individuals. The treatment is designed to be gentle on the skin while delivering effective results. Patients may experience a mild sucking or swirling sensation during the cleansing and extraction steps, but it is typically not painful. If needed, a numbing cream can be applied before the treatment to minimize any potential discomfort.

Visible results can be noticed after just one Hydrafacial treatment. However, for more significant and long-lasting improvements, a series of treatments is usually recommended. The number of sessions required depends on various factors, including your skin condition, concerns, and goals. Typically, a series of 3 to 6 treatments spaced a few weeks apart can help achieve optimal results.

Yes, Hydrafacial can be beneficial for individuals with acne-prone skin. The treatment helps address several aspects of acne, including deep cleansing, exfoliation, extraction of impurities, and hydration. It can also deliver specific serums with ingredients that target acne and inflammation, promoting a clearer and healthier complexion. However, the suitability of Hydrafacial for acne may vary depending on the severity of the condition and other individual factors.

A standard Hydrafacial treatment typically takes around 30 to 60 minutes. However, the duration can be influenced by various factors, such as the areas being treated, the specific concerns being addressed, and any additional add-ons or customized options chosen.

The duration of Hydrafacial results can vary depending on individual factors such as skin type, skincare routine, and lifestyle habits. Generally, the immediate results of a Hydrafacial treatment can last for about 5 to 7 days. During this time, you may notice improved hydration, a more radiant complexion, and reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

However, for longer-lasting results, it is recommended to undergo regular Hydrafacial treatments. Many individuals choose to have a Hydrafacial session every 4 to 6 weeks to maintain the benefits.

Dr Mylene is fantastic..she really listens to your concerns and makes sure you get the best results possible. I have had several treatments at Amara with Dr Paul and more recently with Dr Mylene and the treatments are of the highest quality and thr Dr's are so friendly and professional. I have tried other places for my treatments as I live a good distance away from the clinic , but I always return to Amara .

My mom and I went here recently for hydra facials and were so impressed! Everything was explained in detail with plenty of time allocated to the appointment, no rushing, absolutely no hard sell on products and kind service all the way around! My mom saw Gráinne and I saw Julia - both of them were amazing and got us set up with routines that are suitable and simple to follow. Skin is glowing! Robin at reception was so helpful and friendly and got us booked in again for follow ups - can’t wait!

I have had quite a few Hydrafacials at different clinics in Dublin, and back home in Copenhagen as well, but this clinic is so far the best.The therapist was lovely and she just really knew what she was doing. She made me feel very comfortable and relaxed while guiding me through the treatment.I also had a lot of questions regarding skin care and products because I have had some problems with acne and she took her time to answer all my questions without making me feel pressured to buy the products she was recommending me, which is important to me.I found my visit to the clinic to be excellent. The staff was welcoming and well-trained.Most importantly, my skin just felt and looked amazing afterwards.

I love this clinic!! I have been going here for over 5 years and although it is a huge trek for me I won’t ever go anywhere else for my skincare. The doctors and staff are so friendly and helpful and I cannot stress this point enough. I am not the kind of girl that gets regular facials or would follow a strict 6 step nightly skin regime. In fact, I would normally find this type of place daunting because I often feel judgement for not “being better” with this stuff. At Amara I have never felt like this. Everyone there always makes me feel so comfortable and genuinely wants to help me feel the best I can. I haven’t yet mentioned the results which are always incredible from the few things I’ve had done there . I am always so happily surprised by the results and the clinic is always so amazing with follow up appointments if necessary. I cannot vouch enough for this clinic!

From the moment you enter the clinic, you are greeted with lovely staff, the atmosphere is very calm and welcoming.A huge thank you to Siobhan for doing my hydrafacial, she made me feel very comfortable. Before the treatment she thoroughly explained the process and it's very evident that she is passionate in the work she does, she kept me informed of my facial every step of the way, and helped target my skin concerns along with great product recommendations. After my facial, I could instantly notice the difference on my skin.I will definitely reccomend amara clinic to my girlfriends and I look forward to coming back for more treatments.Thanks again!Ahlam
An unusual but very important review....Amara was very highly recommended to me by a colleague. I purchased a €2,000 voucher from Amara for my wife as a 50th birthday present. Needless to say, she was ecstatic. Due to Covid 19 financial difficulties, we reluctantly decided not to utilise the voucher and to request a refund....6 months later. These are terribly difficult times for businesses, so I felt more than a little embarassed and not very hopeful. I am 50 years old and have been around the block a few times, I have never encountered such professionalism and simple humanity. Never a question, I was fully refunded to my huge relief and complete satisfaction. This company clearly has a wonderful and primary customer care ethos. Their top, middle and bottom line is customer care - pure class. Sincerely, thank you Ronan and your team. We most certainly will be back.

My first visit to Amara (it won't be the last!) was excellent. Paul has such an easy manner, I felt very comfortable and at ease immediately. Everything was explained in detail so I knew exactly what was being done and why. There was no pushy sales technique - if anything it is evident that they will only do work that will benefit you - you won't pay for unnecessary treatments and any treatments you do have will be done with an emphasis on looking natural rather than 'done'. Very happy.

I can recommend Amara.Carolina makes you feel very welcome as soon as you arrive at this clinic.I had an Hydrafacial with Joanie that I will definitely indulge in again and also availed of her advice on their range of skin care products.I felt reassured by Dr Pauls pleasant unrushed manner and in particular with his conservative approach and natural results.He takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he thinks you need it which I like.I will definitely return.

I have been to Amara clinic a few times and the experience is always great. Today I had a Hydrafacial with Siobhan and I couldn't recommend it more. She took the time to review my skin routine, habits and explained to me the science behind our skin. The facial itself was great and my skin is feeling amazing. I will definitely be back!

Friendly, helpful staff that seem genuine.I didn't feel 'pushed' into buying products / services (which is what usually happens!)I am THAT person that asks LOTS of questions - *pedantic *, I see detail in everything and easily pick flaws, but was grateful for the professionalism here. Appreciated they listened and answered my dozen questions... Usually dont take the time to write reviews but the clinic followed up with a text and I figure they deserve it! Thanks Guys - I will be back :-)
I'm more than thrilled about my decsion to go to Amara for lip fillers. I've been researching for a few years but was always to nervous to follow through with the procedure. Dr. Paul is very thorough and honest. He explained everything he would do to achieve the desired result. I asked him for subtlety and thats exactly what I received. I couldn't be happier with my filler treatment and my lips look 100% natural, which was exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much Dr. Paul!
I had my first hyrdafacial treatment here, and loved it so much I’ve already booked another! The treatment itself is amazing, my skin was left feeling wonderful, and the benefits were noticeable straight away, and I my skin was noticeably soft and smooth for several weeks after the treatment. The staff were all extremely friendly and helpful. My therapist Joanie was lovely, and incredibly knowledgeable of the whole process, and really thorough when reviewing my skin needs. I would highly recommend the whole experience with Amara :)
