Pore Extraction Facials

Pore Extractions

Q: My skin is normally clear, but lately I have been experiencing small bumps throughout my cheek and chin area. What can I do to get rid of this issue?

A: You start by having a pore extraction facial to pull the “bumps” (comedones and blackheads) out of your skin. This process involves thorough cleansing and light resurfacing, before an ozone steaming session. The steam opens the pores and softens the surface of the skin making extractions a breeze. Blackheads and oil-build up are pulled out of the skin leaving your pores clear of visible debris. Closed comedones (whiteheads) are pierced with a small lancet allowing for trapped debris to be safely removed.

After having your skin purged of impurities, it is important to stick to a regular cleansing and nourishing routine. Start by cleansing with a cleanser containing the appropriate blend of ingredients suitable for your skin type. Double cleansing is recommended every evening so your skin can breath and absorb nutrients overnight. Moisturizer should be applied while the skin is still humid in order to seal in added hydration. Regardless of your skin type moisturizer is very important in maintaining a healthy balance in your skin.

You may have blemishes pop up over the following week, this is normal as all the impurities are making their way up to the surface. If you are confident with your extractions, you can gently extract these blemishes after cleansing and a steamy shower. Although, if you can’t get it in the first 2 attempts then let it be as this may cause bruising or damage to the skin.

Once your skin has made a full recovery after 4-6 days, your skin should look and feel smoother with minimized pore size. You can schedule your facial sessions 4-6 weeks apart and once you’ve cleared the excess, seasonal facial and home maintenance should be suffice.

Hope this helps :)

Eyebrow Feathering Edmonton- Post Treatment Guide

MICROBLADING POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

So you recently achieved the brows you have always dreamed of with dérmica’s eyebrow feathering treatment…

Now that your brows have been skillfully etched into shape with dérmica’s top-of-the-line eyebrow feathering products and techniques, you will need to follow post-care instructions.

The following guide will help you care for your fresh brows and ensure you achieve best results. Your brows may feel sore and bruised immediately following your eyebrow feathering procedure; this usually dissipates within 12 hours.

Follow the POST-TREATMENT GUIDE until your brows have completely flaked and healed. The healing process can take up to 10 days and varies with each individual.

POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

  1. Hot temperatures will irritate your brows during the first 12 hours, therefore remain indoors and fan if necessary.

  2. DO NOT touch brow with unwashed hands, doing so can cause infection.

  3. DO NOT soak brows. Showers and baths are safe; keep your brows away from direct water contact as this may cause color to fade.

  4. Face washing and moisturizing instructions:
  • Gently cleanse lower half and forehead with your daily cleanser in the morning. When rinsing cleanser away, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the cleanser and gently wipe brows in outward motion. Blot dry with dry gauze/pad.
  • Once your brows begin scab or flake, apply a small amount of the moisturizer over the brows after washing in the morning and evening.

5. DO NOT use ANY makeup or SPF directly over the brow area until brows have completely healed. This may alter color tone or blur strokes.

6. AVOID direct sunlight, this can cause the pigment to fade and irritate the skin.

7. DO NOT pick or lift scabs or flakes from brows, this may pull the pigment prematurely causing fading or gaps in strokes.

8. Brow can be lightly tweezed around area treated but not directly over for 3 weeks. Waxing procedure can be performed 4 weeks following procedure.

Consult: 30 minutes. During your consult, your desired brow shape and colour, and overall appearance is discussed. After your consult you will receive your PreTx Guide and products to prepare your skin for the procedure.

Procedure: 2hrs. During your microblading session your brow area is numbed to ease discomfort during the procedure. The procedure time can range from 1-2 hours depending on the amount of restoration required. You will receive a detailed PostTx Guide and products to care for your brows during the recovery phase.

Refresher: 1.5 hrs. Optimal results are achieved with this complimentary refresher session; it ensures that every stroke is vibrant and extends wear. Ensure you book your Refresher before your brows reach a 40% fade. A minimum of 40% of the initial shape must be present for your Refresher. This time varies per person. Overextending the re-booking period may cause you to lose the outlining shape from your initial session for the technician to follow.
