Stratum Synergy Hydrofacial

Stratum Synergy Hydrofacial is an all-in-one management platform that uses the latest technologies:

  • HydroMedi for deep exfoliation,
  • Oxy n Rich for flooding the skin with Oxygen,
  • Radio Frequency for tightening the skin and
  • Ultra+Serum for deeply hydrating the skin using ultrasonic technology.

Through the combined use of these technologies, we are able to treat all layers of the skin and all skin types to ensure your face feels amazing.



There are many benefits to your skin with the Stratum Synergy Platform, it offers an overall deep cleanse, exfoliation and nourishment to your skin. The benefits are best described here:

  • Deep cleanse, exfoliation and reduction in pore size in acne prone skin
  • Removal of bacteria and blackheads from congested pores
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Softens lines & wrinkles
  • Stimulates the formation of collagen
  • Reduces laxity and results in firmer skin
  • Improved skin cell health by deep hydration and nourishment.



The combination of the suction, turbulence and specially formulated solutions reaches down into the skin to unblock pores, remove blackheads, bacteria, spots and pustules, and generally carry pollutants away from the skin. This is then followed by a further stage to hydrate and nourish the skin, leaving it both refreshed, and rejuvenated.

There is no downtime and all skin types can be treated. Your skin will feel amazing! Deep cleansed and refreshed, with a smooth texture and a dewy hydration.


OxyNrich™ exfoliates in a gentle way so is beneficial for those with more sensitive and mature skin.

This treatment uses a skin nourishment gel and a vibrational tip. At a carefully selected frequency, the tip gently exfoliates the skin and also produces minute C02 bubbles. These minute C02 bubbles penetrate into the skin and pop deep inside triggering the small blood capillaries to release more oxygen to rejuvenate the skin cells.

This process is known as the Bohr effect. This step stimulates cell metabolism, helping to create a stronger and healthier skin.


Radiofrequency treatment causes the collagen in the skin to contract as it’s gently warmed to a comfortable 41˚C making this a relaxing treatment with immediate lifting results.

The radiofrequency helps collagen and elastin fibres to recover their lost tone as the number of fibres increases. Stimulation of the local microcirculation also improves lymphatic drainage.

For immediately brighter, more compact and with an improvement in texture this is The ‘Red Carpet’ facial when you want to look your best!


A superb relaxing treatment using a combination of ultrasound and clinical grade skin products. Ultra+Serum™ is used at the end of any combination of Stratum Synergy treatments.

It works by the ultrasound creating microscopic gaps between the skin cells and disruption of the surface tension of the active serum produces micro droplets. These micro droplets are able to then penetrate into the skin to nourish and hydrate the skin.

The serum used contains a potent mixture of nutrients for the skin cells, these include hyaluronic acid, Vitamins C, E, B3, B5 and Ferulic acid. Ferulic acid prolongs the antioxidant effect of the Vitamin C & E making this a treatment that keeps on working long after you’ve left the clinic.

It was truly divine

“I booked in with Geraldine for a Stratum Synergy HydroFacial using her fantastic new machine and it was truly divine.

I’ve had a lot of facial treatments before but I’ve never had one that left my skin feeling so smooth, decongested and clean! I will definitely be trying this again soon.

As always a visit to Geraldine’s is a delight and I always leave feeling so positive with fantastic glowing skin!”


Synergy protocols have been created to offer treatments for specific skin concerns and areas. These protocols utilise a combination of two to four Stratum Synergy platforms that are best suited to the skin issue and concern.

LED light therapy is also included in some of these protocols to complete the treatment. (See separate information about Celluma Light Therapy).



All of our facial protocols include a pre-hydromedi cleanse and post-treatment mask. Other clinical skincare products can be introduced to your treatment as needed and at no extra cost. Your perfect, results oriented, facial is our ultimate aim.

Are there any side effects?

The Stratum Synergy has minimal side effects and downtime post-treatment. There may be some mild redness which will subside within a few hours – the degree of redness will vary from one individual to another.

Treatment will only be carried out following a thorough consultation to ensure this treatment is appropriate for you. This allows side effects to be discussed in detail before treatment is commenced.


How long do results last?

Although your skin will appear dewy and glowy following a Stratum Synergy HydroMedi facial, it is intended to improve skin’s appearance over time. For maximum results, we recommend treatment every 4-6 weeks.
