Who’s ready to glow?! Turtle Bay Resort’s Award-Winning Nalu Kinetic Spa is one of only three on the island of Oahu to offer the new HydraFacial treatment.

We talked story with Turtle Bay Director of Wellness Avigale Lagrass about the new and exciting treatment now being offered.

1. Why is the HydraFacial so special?

The HydraFacial is a Hydraderm service that gives a much deeper facial.  The treatment cleanses beneath the dermis, peels, extracts, and hydrates while fusing and protecting the skin with boosters and serums.  

2. How long does a treatment take?

We offer a 50-minute signature facial and an 80-minute platinum facial. The 80-minute treatment includes a facial lymphatic drainage massage. 

3. Lymphatic Drainage - what is that? 

Apart from being blissfully relaxing, lymphatic drainage decreases facial puffiness, boosts the immune system, smoothes cellulite and soothes sore muscles. Lymphatic drainage massage helps deliver cellular waste (including viruses and bacteria) to the lymph nodes. Drainage is essential because the lymphatic system lacks a pump of its own to transport lymph through the body and must rely on movement and massage to flush the fluid. Lymphatic drainage massage is good at reducing swelling, healing acne, relieving fatigue, and also helps the body detox.

4. Wow! That sounds amazing. How are the results?
Your skin will feel hydrated and smooth. You will see a decrease in fine lines, sun damage, and brown spots, and oily skin with each session.

5. It sounds like the fountain of youth! What skin types are the HydraFacial for?

The great thing is HydraFacial is available for ALL skin types! 

6. How does it work?

The HydraFacial uses a device that extracts congestion from your skin while fusing boosters and serums into the skin. There is no other device that fuses serums into your skin.

7. What has your personal experience with the HydraFacial been like? 
I normally have very dry skin, every single time I receive a HydraFacial my skin instantly feels revived. I love the lymphatic drainage on my face since it helps release any toxins.
