Optimal cutting-edge skin rejuvenation, wrinkle reduction, hydration boost & protection. Infuses skin with coveted bFGF (basic fibroblast human growth factor) technologically advanced biomimetic peptides, medically sophisticated vitamins A, B3, B5 & C, natural moisturising factors, lipids, & anti-oxidants. Complete age reversal & anti-inflammatory complex for all skin types with superior, silky feel & liposomal delivery that luxuriously absorbs with no greasy residue.


Skin Type: Dry / Dehydrated / Healing / Sensitive / ALL

Application: 2 -3 pea size after cleansing or active serums. Before sunblock in AM. Can be re-applied throughout the day after more invasive procedures

Essential targets of Hydra Helix +: 1 - Cell Support  2 - Anti-ageing / Anti-wrinkle  3 –  Anti-oxidant / Nutrients

Supporting these 3 fundamental areas of concern requires the intricate framework of key actives that are suspended in a luxurious emollient platform, executing delivery to the critical skin matrix

Key Actives

Oligopeptide-3 (bFGF) – Medically engineered Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor

  • Recent scientific research suggests that basic Fibroblast Growth Factors regulate a broad spectrum of biological functions, essential in the regeneration of key dermal proteins and connective tissues within the skin
  • Medically engineered bFGF work by sending bioidentical signaling directly to the dermal fibroblast cells, thereby amplifying cellular activity and accelerating rejuvenation of the epidermal and dermal tissues
  • Stimulates mitogenic activity towards dermal fibroblasts, thereby initiating cellular proliferation, migration, differentiation, growth and maturation in dermal fibroblast cells

SNAP 8 - Acetyl Octapeptide-3 Amino-peptide that blocks transmitter signals from facial muscles to the skin

  • SNAP 8 is a mimic of the N-terminal end of SNAP 25. It competes with SNAP 25 for a position in the SNARE (SNAp Receptor) complex, an essential process for neurotransmitter delivery.
  • By modulating its formation & destabilising this complex the release of neurotransmitters is inefficient, weakening muscle contraction
  • Reduces repeated facial movements preventing the formation of lines & wrinkles
  • Maintains youthful structural fibres of collagen, elastin & packing of the lipid matrix
  • Maximum wrinkle reduction value found with usage of 10% SNAP 8 was 63.13%
  • 98% wrinkle depth reduction after 28 days with 10% SNAP (applied twice daily)

Retinaldehyde 0.05%

  • Works like prescription A without the side effects – outstanding compliancy rate
  • Skins natural storage form of A – non irritating – epidermis not compromised
  • Stored in the fat cell – converted to Retinoic Acid within the skin – prolonged vitamin release
  • Never found in the blood stream – safe during pregnancy
  • Physiologically alters damaged DNA – new cells replicate in healthier state
  • Normalises hyperkeratinisation – reducing congestion in ACNE & ROSACEA sufferers
  • New collagen production at 3 months – creates volume in dermal tissue
  • Rebuilds damage to structural fibres - plumps scar tissue & lines
  • Compresses distended vessels – damaged vascular network less visible
  • Normalises over active melanocytes – minimising hyperpigmentation
  • Regulates sebaceous activity – reducing oil output
  • Reconditions the skin to manufacture Glycosaminoglycans & NMF’s


Niacinamide 2% – Vitamin B3

  • Repairs barrier function – reducing sensitivity
  • Potent anti-inflammatory – calming atopic skin disorders
  • Inhibits Melanosome transfer to Keratinocyte – normalising hyperpigmentation
  • Maintains surveillance function of Langerhan Cells during UV exposure – reducing tumour formation
  • Regulates moisture levels – over active sebaceous activity slowed – hydration levels restored
  • Delivery mechanism for other nutrients

D-Panthenol 2% – Vitamin B5

  • Vital nourishment that adds moisture, maintains elasticity & strength of barrier function
  • Anti-inflammatory – calming atopic skin disorders by reducing oxidative stress & environmental toxins
  • Smooths roughness, irritation & fine lines
  • Revitalises & aids healing processes by encouraging growth of new epithelial cells
  • Regulates moisture levels – over active sebaceous activity slowed – hydration levels restored
  • Nutrients promote luminous, even toned skin by managing healthy levels of fibroblasts, prolific in skins connective tissue defying ageing


Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate 5%

  • Water Soluble, non-irritating, stable derivative of Vitamin C
  • Enzymatically converted into L-ascorbic within the skin
  • Boosts collagen synthesis
  • Suppresses melanin production, inhibiting further pigmentation reducing existing uneven pigment
  • Ideal for sensitive skin types
  • Protects the skin against oxidative stress caused by sun, pollution & heat
  • Boosts radiance and reduces signs of ageing


Sodium PCA

  • Natural Moisturising Factor – providing long term correction to dehydration

Physiological hydrators offer long term restoration to treat NMF + LIPID deficiencies


Olive Complex: It is a natural complex of fatty acids, chemically similar to the lipidic composition of the skin surface

Composition: Oleic 55 - 83% | Palmitic 7.5 - 20% | Linoleic 3.5 - 13.5% | Stearic 0.5 – 5% | Linolenic max 0.8 - 1.2

Skin Composition: Oleic 30 - 35% | Palmitic 5% | Linoleic 3.5 - 13.5% | Stearic 20 -28% | Linolenic max 0.8 - 1.2

  • Has the ability to generate liquid crystal structures that mimic stratum corneum organization
  • Due to its exceptional chemical composition and physical structuring, it acts in a biomimetic manner, interacting with the human hydrolipidic film to promote healthy barrier function, skin hydration and elegant skin feel
  • An epidermis that is intact at the outermost boundary is crucial for a well-functioning physiological interaction between the individual skin layers
  • Aids restoration of the lipid barrier of dry and fissured skin conditions
  • Created to support green chemistry philosophy with cutting-edge technology, making it possible to craft products with superior function & texture

Intercellular lipid matrix represents the mortar between the corneocytes (bricks) & is made up of the following:

  • 50% Ceramides (most important structural elements of the lipid barrier)
  • 25% Free fatty acids
  • 20% Cholesterol
  • 5% Cholesterol Sulfate
  • Amino acids


Jojoba Seed Oil: Non comedogenic, biomimetic esters that closely resemble human sebum. Anti-bacterial & anti-inflammatory defence against invading  micro-organisms. Repairs protective acid mantle – barrier. Long term correction is induced with ingredients that occur naturally in the skin providing calibration & optimal function. The skin learns to rehydrate itself again - Promoting less dependence on extra products

Allantoin – Anti-irritant, wound healing, increases cell proliferation, softens corneocytes, slows dehydration, inhibits TEWL (trans epidermal water loss) Beneficial for those with compromised immune systems, wounds, burns, eczema & other inflammatory skin disorders

Lactic Acid 1.6% – Hydrating Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) that naturally exists within the skin. Gently aids removal of dead skin cells to decongest, clarify & aid uneven pigmentation

      I am so happy i found MD. At the beginning of the year i was suffering with post pill acne for the first time in my life and felt so hopeless with my skin. I had a consult with Mel who made me feel so welcomed and hopeful about what we could do for my skin and even gut health (which was affecting my skin). I then continued to get treatments with tayla, who has been so great every single time. The ladies here are so kind, offer you knowledge about the treatments and take care of you the entire process. I recommend this place to all my friends and family, I LOVE IT. ❤️

    • Suzi Adams

      When I first came to MD Cosmetics three years ago, I wanted skin that was healthy enough to no longer feel like I needed to wear foundation. And I can honestly say that goal came true - I almost never wear make up anymore! Mel and the team always make me feel pampered and comfortable. They have totally changed my skin and I’m so grateful I found this place!

    • Emma Wallace

      I have had several treatments with Nurse Laura Barnes at MD and I am thrilled with the service I received and my fantastic results. Laura is so knowledgeable yet approachable and sweet. Thank you MD! I’ll be coming back for years!
