I’m on my second month of the LUXE program at Skin Wellness Center and am loving it! For my first treatment we did Microneedling and if you’re wondering if it hurt, you should read more about it here. For my second treatment a month later, I didn’t have as much “down” time to devote. Halloween was the very next day, and I suppose I could have gone all scarred up and red-faced to our Halloween party, but my husband and I decided to go as baby-faced newlyweds, Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin. So, my skin basically needed to look like butter.
The experts at Skin Wellness suggested we do a Hydrafacial and let me just tell you, the results are almost immediate!

What is a Hydrafacial?
Many of you may might be more familiar with a treatment called microdermabrasion. This was a buzzword for many years in the skin industry, but the Hydrafacial is quickly replacing it! Rather than blasting the skin with a harsh gritty tool, the Hydrafacial pen takes a gentler approach to vacuums out pores, all while pushing in potent actives, which moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect.
Steps of a Hydrafacial Treatment: (You can expect the full treatment to take around 30 minutes)
Step 1: Cleansing and exfoliation
Step 2: Acid peel
Step 3: Extractions
Step 4: Serum application
Step 5: Red Light Therapy
Step 6: Apply antioxidants and peptides
The Hydrafacial treatment is not painful, but also doesn’t feel like a gentle facial massage. If you are having treatments on the face, there is feeling involved. That said, the Hydrafacial would be a great treatment to start off with! Very little discomfort, little to no downtime and quick results!
