What is a HydraFacial?
HydraFacial is a unique, patented process that cleanses, exfoliates, and hydrates the skin, while simultaneously infusing nourishing serums that are tailored to your skin’s needs — all in one short 30 to 60 minute session. It provides the benefits of dermabrasion or chemical peels, without the pain or downtime. This soothing, refreshing treatment is non-irritating and immediately effective.
Unlike dermabrasion and chemical peels, HydraFacial is safe for a wide variety of skin types. HydraFacials are performed only in licensed medical facilities, such as Luminary Medical, with a licensed aesthetician.
Who Can Benefit?
HydraFacial helps to restore and rejuvenate skin; whether your skin needs refreshing from signs of aging, fine lines, hyperpigmentation and dryness, or whether you suffer from teen or adult acne.
HydraFacial uses a patented system that begins with gentle exfoliation using a blended serum to uncover healthy skin. Next, the tiny vacuum suction gently removes blackheads, dead skin cells, dirt and other impurities. It then infuses the skin with hydrating, nourishing and moisturizing serums. These rejuvenating serums, which are tailored to the needs of each patient, have anti-oxidant and anti-aging properties.
Are there any side effects?
HydraFacial is a breakthrough in skincare because it provides the benefits of a peel without the scaling, peeling and roughness – there is virtually no downtime with a HydraFacial. There may be a slight discomfort during the exfoliation phase and a little redness that quickly dissipates post-treatment. Many of our patients choose to do a Hydrafacial before a big event where they want their skin to look and feel its best.
While this unique skin therapy works on virtually skin types; there are a few groups who should discuss alternatives with their esthetician or doctor: those with pregnancy, sunburn, active rashes and rosacea.
HydraFacial produces visible benefits after just one treatment. Many patients choose to have regular treatments, ranging from once a month to every few months, for lasting and continued effects. Benefits continue with continued use over time.
Known for its three-step process, the HydraFacial works to deep-clean, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. This professional procedure may help treat a variety of skin conditions, including acne, dryness, and wrinkles.
HydraFacials are non-invasive, meaning that no skin is punctured and you can come in for the treatment and walk away with no side effects. These facials work on every type of skin and don’t hurt at all. It simply feels like a tiny vacuum is lightly tugging on your skin.
By removing trapped dirt and impurities in the pores, HydraFacial not only improves the skin health but can also help pores regress back to a smaller sizer. This results in a smoother overall appearance.
If you have oily skin or stubborn blackheads that you can’t seem to get rid of, a HydraFacial can address these problems. HydraFacial therapy is also helpful in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone.
HydraFacials usually take 30 to 90 minutes to complete, but the exact amount of time for you will depend on your skin needs and the level of treatment you’d like to receive.
It’s generally best to come in for a HydraFacial every four to six weeks to maintain your fresh look and optimal skin quality.
The HydraFacial MD® procedure is recommended for those who wish to even out their skin tone, eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, add elasticity and firmness to the facial skin, diminish the appearance of age spots and other darkened areas and reverse advanced signs of aging.
Gina is the best! She is so professional, she takes her time and explains everything she is doing. She is so knowledgeable about services, procedures and skin care. She and the entire staff at Luminary are so wonderful!
What an amazing place. They offer such an array of ways to enhance your own beauty. The facial that I received from Gina, left my skin looking young, vibrant and super moisturizer!The staff is always so warm and welcoming. The offices are always spotless. I always look forward to going and would definitely recommend to a friend
I had the pleasure of having Brette provide a BBL and Moxi treatment at Luminary in Lindwood. She was very good at explaining everything during the consultation. She made me feel very relaxed and made sure I was aware of everything she was doing during each procedure. I would highly recommend Brette and Luminary Cosmetic
I love Luminary so much!! The staff is so knowledgeable and so friendly. Dr. Saltzburg gave me a full evaluation and treatment plan options that were customized to my specific needs and desires. I started with Dermaplaning and then a Moxi/BBL HERO treatment. The recovery was easy and the results were amazing!! Years of impurities and old dead skin were removed from my face, making way for new, glowing growth. Next I’d love to try a lip filler, but I’ve been really nervous about it. Dr. Saltzburg has taken lots of time to discuss my reservations and to understand exactly what type of results I am looking for. She has really set my mind at ease and I’m excited to give it a try! I absolutely recommend Luminary for all of your aesthetic needs. You will not be disappointed.
I had Halo/BBL performed by Gina and it was a great experience! She talked me through every step of the process, answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly, and she was a pleasure to talk to during the process! Everything was handled professionally and personably and I am loving my new smooth glowing skin! Looking forward to future treatments by Gina!
Gina gave me an amazing facial – skin so smooth and soft. Feeling refreshed! She analyzed my skin and spoke with me about options for skincare and rejuvenation. Very impressed. The space is beautiful- clean and professional. I will be back for facials to brighten and care for my skin.
