From the moment she stepped on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, Julianne Moore has taken radiance to a new level. The secret behind her sparkling skin—besides great genes? A high-tech new treatment given to her by celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skincare Collection.
The ritual in question is the radio-frequency Forever Facial, which Vargas tells Pret-a-Reporter she chooses “for a lot of women now because it is the next level of anti-aging. It boosts collagen production immediately.” Additionally, it tightens skin and improves elasticity over time (she recommends a series of eight, one per week).
Vargas began the therapy by cleansing Moore’s face with her Vitamin C Face Wash ($65). She then applied an ultrasound gel for conducting, and divided her face into four sections for treatment: the orbital bone (crows’ feet and under eye); jaw and cheeks; the chin, mouth and upper lip; and neck. At the end, she again cleansed the actress’ porcelain skin with the same face wash, and applied oxygen.
Says Vargas, who gave Karlie Kloss a pre-Cannes Oxygen Purifying Facial this week and prepped the complexions of Dakota Johnson, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Moore for the Met Gala, “All my celebrity clients do this facial alternately with the Triple Crown Facial because they both address the full picture needed to look fresh, rested and healthy.” Ah, the life of an iconic beauty.
