Is your skin in need of some TLC? We highly recommend having the HydraFacial done
16 January 2019| Last updated on 17 February 2019
If, like me, you’re not exactly 100% clued-up on what type of skin you have – speaking to one of Kaya’s experts is the perfect place to start.
In their squeaky-clean, brand-new clinic in Jumeirah Beach Residence, Kaya Skin Clinic is as sophisticated as I expected.
Having visited the company’s Barsha Heights clinic a while back for their Kaya Detox Face Therapy, it’s safe to say I was excited to visit their new location.
Anyone who resides in Dubai will be very familiar with the harsh effects the climate can have on our skin. Especially if you struggle with acne-prone skin, or pigmentation or dryness… The desert isn’t exactly kind to our faces at times.
And if, like me, you’re fed up of heading to one of the many beauty stores in Dubai’s malls endlessly trying to find the answer to “what is my skin type?” – visiting Kaya is definitely worth the trip.
Despite being told I have dry skin a few months ago, after speaking to Specialist Dermatologist Dr. Maher Saleh at Kaya’s new JBR clinic, it seems I actually have combination skin. My t-zone can be oily, whereas my cheeks tend to be a bit on the dry side.
So what to do? Thankfully, Kaya is an international chain of skin clinics, which specialise in advanced dermatological solutions for both men and women. The 8-times Superbrand offers various different treatments to help combat all sorts of skin-related issues… Including the increasingly popular multi-step HydraFacial!
My skin analysis during my consultation with Maher Saleh
The HydraFacial is suitable for all skin types
After my consultation with the very friendly Dr. Maher – during which we took several pictures of my face to gain a more in-depth understanding of what state it’s in – he advised the HydraFacial.
This 95 minute treatment which includes several steps is the perfect way to replenish, rehydrate and rejuvenate your skin if you have combination skin like I.
In fact, it’s designed to suit all skin types – and even the most sensitive of skin can easily tolerate the HydraFacial treatment in Dubai. The invigorating treatment delivers long-term skin health, and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of all skin types.
The best part – it offers instant, noticeable results with no downtime or irritation.
How does HydraFacial treatments work?
The HydraFacial treatment works to remove dead skin cells, and extract impurities, while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturising serums.
The non-invasive, non-surgical procedure enhances your skin by using Vortex Technology™ and is evolved from microdermabrasion, which is a non-surgical process of removing the skin’s outer layer using a stream of micro-crystals blased onto the surface of the skin.
The HydraFacial doesn’t use crystals to exfoliate. Instead, it uses a specially shaped tip which exfoliates and removes impurities along with applying the serums throughout the treatment process.
Overall, the treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective – and honestly, made for the perfect way to wind down after a day in the office.
Due to my combination skin, Dr. Maher prescribed two types of serums; solution 2 salicylic acid to combat my oily skin, and solution 3 Hyaluronic acid to help moisturise the rest of my face that sometimes feel dry.
There is also another Kaya hydra facial option available to choose from - for those with dehydrated or sensitive skin or those seeking facial anti-ageing. This alternative includes solution 1 lactic acid in place of the salicylic acid.

A step-by-step guide to the HydraFacial treatment
- The first step is to cleanse and exfoliate your skin to prepare your face for the treatment with diamond microdermabrasion.
- Next, the solution 1 lactic/solution 2 salicylic acid is applied as part of the aqua cleaning infusion step
- The third step is black head removal extraction, with the help of a small tip to remove all of the bad stuff!
- Next, you're treated to an aqua infusion of solution 3 Hyaluronic acid
- Followed by electroporation and LED blue light* that provides an effective solution and penetration for skin nutrition
- The penultimate step is skin lifting, which is supplied by micro-currents to stimulate your facial muscles
- Lastly - you're treated to a mask application for full rejuvenation and hydration!
*Wondering what "electroporation" is? It's a non-invasive electrical treatment, which helps to carry active ingredients into the dermal layers. The LED light works by sending energy-producing packets of light into the deeper layers of your skin.
