Gunning for glowing skin is much easier with some extra help. Yes, amping up your skincare routine does work, but if you want some hard-hitting results, a visit to your dermatologist will do the trick. Just ask Gabbi Garcia, who achieved her best skin yet with a combination of beauty treatments from Belo. That said, she credits most of her glow now to a specific treatment that made her more confident to go makeup-free. Find out more about it below!
Gabbi is the face of LuminoVitaGlow, a three-step Belo procedure that's all about giving you the fresh, luminous skin of your dreams. It exfoliates your skin, hydrates, and charges it with essential nutrients that you might not be getting enough of from your everyday skincare routine.
You don't have to worry about it affecting your tan either, because it's morena-approved! This was actually Gabbi's concern with the treatment at first. "I told Dra. Vicki, I don't really wanna change my skin color. I just really wanna glow," she says in an interview. When she finally tried it, she was impressed enough with the results to go barefaced—"[It gave my appearance] less pores, and it [made me] really fresh. After I did my LVG, I didn't wear makeup for the whole week because I trusted the treatment so much and it worked so much for me."
Below, we break down everything you need to know about this glow-boosting treatment:
Step 1: Time Peel
Every good facial starts with some exfoliation. In the LuminoVitaGlow's case, it's in the form of a superficial chemical peel using a gentle type of acid called gluconolactone (a type of PHA). Aside from getting rid of dead skin and congested pores, this helps improve our skin barrier function and results in smoother and more moisturized skin. Since it's a gentle type of acid, it will exfoliate without causing too much dryness and photosensitivity. That said, the best part about this peel is that it prepares your skin to absorb the next steps in the treatment better.
Step 2: New Cellular Treatment Factor (NCTF)
New Cellular Treatment Factor (NCTF) is the star of the LuminoVitaGlow. It's dubbed as "fertilizer to the skin," being scientifically proven to create an optimal environment for your cells to thrive. In fact, clinical studies have shown that NCTF improves skin density, radiance, and hydration, while helping with issues like wrinkles and visible pores.
You can think of it like a super serum—made up of hyaluronic acid (a known and powerful hydrator) and 59 other essential nutrients (amino acids, vitamins, antioxidants, co-enzymes, etc.) that work to amplify your collagen production and improve your skin's overall quality. Unlike a regular serum though, this will be applied to your skin through the "scratch technique," which uses microfine needles to deliver the formula straight to your dermis—a much more effective method than any sort of hand patting or facial massage.

Step 3: LED Photorejuvenation
To seal in the benefits of the NCTF, the treatment ends with an LED session that according to Belo, "rebalances and rejuvenates the skin while increasing the potency of both the Time Peel and the NCTF." After that, grab a mirror and watch your skin gleam!
Though you'd see results right away, it's recommended to have at least three session of the LuminoVitaGlow in two to three week intervals. After that, you can just get it once every six months for maintenance!
