There’s a smattering of North Shore salons offering HydraFacial treatments, but Lynnfield’s RN Esthetics & Laser Co. stands heads above the rest in terms of quality service and expertise. Recently, their small but wonderfully welcoming space was brimming with Prosecco-sipping clients looking to learn about the technique, and HydraFacial Luminary representatives on hand to explain the process and its results, which are immediate and require no down time. The non-invasive, non-surgical resurfacing procedure includes cleansing, exfoliation, extractions, and hydration with antioxidants, peptides, and hyaluronic acid. Using a small-headed, brush-like applicator, technicians repeatedly go over the face and neck—though the treatment can also be applied to the chest and back—during sessions that can last for anywhere between 15 and 40 minutes (the longer the better, as the sensation is divine and deeply relaxing). The device simultaneously suctions up dead skin cells and extracts dirt and sebum, while applying a gentle acid peel and conditioning serums. All serums can be customized according to skin type (and kept on file for future reference). RN’s master estheticians are attentive when it comes to understanding clients’ skin types and goals, and proceed accordingly. It is for this reason HydraFacial recipients leave the salon saying their skin never felt more alive.
