What is the 3D HydrO2 facial and how does it work?


Dubbed ‘the ultimate #FiveStarFacial’ this 7-in-1 multi-technology facial device from 3D Aesthetics offers the complete facial solution for an array of skin concerns. The 3D HydrO2 facial is designed to target universal facial concerns including hydration, oxygenation, anti-ageing, brightening, skin tightening and congestion. By utilising seven different technologies, practitioners can offer more prescriptive, versatile and rounded facials than ever before. These technologies smooth, hydrate and cleanse the skin resulting in a glowing, more youthful appearance.

3D HydrO2 combines the benefits of two of the most sought after facials on the UK market plus 5 more technologies in one complete, affordable system.

During a 3D HydrO2 facial, practitioners may choose from one or all of the available technologies to create completely bespoke treatment packages ranging from 30 minutes for an ‘express’ facial, to 90 minutes for a ‘deluxe’ facial. These include Radio Frequency Skin Tightening, Hydro Peel, Deep Cleanse, Oxygenation, Skin Lifting, Hydration and a Cryo Facial. Technologies can be combined for a complete prescriptive approach depending on the individual client’s skin concerns

The 3D HydrO2 facial was introduced to the market in 2019 at an affordable price to clinics without compromising on technology or specification and has since become the company’s best selling device. This ensures that clinics can make a quick return on investment while offering their clients the most effective treatments of its type.

The treatment has received extensive press coverage in the media, with celebrities including Billie Faiers, Danielle Lloyd, Christina Rihanoff, The Singing Dentist & Luisa Zissman all raving about the treatment.

So- How do the technologies work?

  • Hydro Peel/ Deep Cleanse: Uses a combination of three solutions to cleanse and smooth the skin using an AHA based solution. It hydrates and nourishes the skin using an RH-Oligopeptide-1 and Acetyl Hexapeptide base. Bacteria and inflamed skin is improved using a BHA based solution.
  • Exfoliation/Oxygenation: creates ‘the Bohr effect’, allowing oxygen to be drawn into the skin. The active ingredients used are Kojic Acid and Retinol which result in a hydrating and brightening effect.
  • Oxygenation: this spray creates a Venturi effect, breaking down the molecules within the product to encourage skin hydration.
  • Electro Ion – Skin Lifting: this treatment uses electroporation to increase the absorbency of the cell for product penetration. This, in turn, revitalises and ‘wakes up’ dull and lifeless skin.
  • Skin Tightening: Radio Frequency technology is used to increase collagen reproduction in mature skin. Skin Tightening is ideal for incorporating into an anti-ageing facial.
  • Hydration: Ultrasound technology is used for product infusion. This treatment can be used alongside the 3D-Professional Solutions Time Defence Expression skincare range, for anti-ageing and hydration around areas where fine lines and wrinkles are likely to appear. 3D Solutions masks can also be used.
  • Fire and Ice: the ‘fire’ represents the heat element during treatment. Using this applicator, heat is incorporated into the beginning of the facial protocol to open the pores, increase blood supply, and aid product infusion. The ‘Cryo facial’ uses cooling technology, chilling the skin down to 5˚C. This is used at the end of each facial to decrease the bloody supply, giving a tightening effect, and sealing in the infused products. This also helps to reduce any erythema following treatment.

How many treatments are recommended?


A course of 6-8 sessions are recommended for best results, however the client will see a great result after just one treatment.


Which clients are suitable candidates for treatment?


As this facial is completely bespoke, the treatment is suitable for a client’s looking to target a number of skin concerns, from anti-ageing, to congestion and blemishes. Clients must be over the age of 18, with no contra-indications to treatment.


What will clients feel during treatment?


During the treatment, clients will experience varying sensations depending on the technologies that are used on them during treatment. However, the overall feeling is very relaxing, cooling, and completely pain free. The ‘skin-lifting’ technology may trigger slight twitching due to muscle contractions caused by the treatment, but this is normal and does not cause any discomfort.

What after care is required? 


There is no after care formally required, however, we will always recommend that clients protect their skin with SPF 30+. Practitioners may also recommend 3D Professional Solutions skincare products that are suitable to the client’s skin type to assist in the clients home skincare regime to help maintain results.
