Why choose one when you can have two?

Our bogo special is one of the best photofacial deals ever! Try ALISA for skin tightening/pore size reduction, ACLARA for hyperpigmentation, or ALIVIA for removal of redness. Click here for details.

Skin and Pore Tightening

ALISA uses yellow light (580-950nm) to blast collagen cells to boost production. It is ideal for treating dull skin appearance, textural damage such as scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, and mature skin.

Removal of Redness and Brown Spots

On the other hand, ACLARA and ALIVIA use green light (535-950nm). ACLARA destroys excess melanin cells which are expelled from the body 2-3 weeks post treatment. This photofacial is best to lighten and clear light to dark pigmented lesions. 

ALIVIA cauterizes superficial vessels. Once cauterized, the vessels dissolve back into the skin. The ALIVIA photofacial is the best choice to diminish redness and dissolve broken capillaries.

Safety first.

Photofacials safely treat major skin conditions, however, there can be potential side effects. When present, certain factors can cause an increased risk of side effects. Examples of contraindications are health conditions, recent treatments, or use of certain products. As a result, we have created an IPL photofacial pretreatment guide for your review before booking online. In addition, your laser technician will conduct a thorough consultation on the day of your treatment.

Dermaplaning Side Effects

dermaplaning side effects

Are there side effects to dermaplaning?

Like all services, dermaplaning can have side effects including:

  • Irritation caused by the superficial abrasion of the skin.
  • Sensitivity to strong products and cosmetics.
  • Redness as a result of stimulation of the skin that draws impurities to the surface.

Are the side effects to removing the peach fuzz from your face?

Vellus hair, aka peach fuzz, no longer serves the purpose it used to. Past functions of vellus hair included protection from the elements. However, today we wear sunscreen, makeup, moisturizer, serum, etc.

An additional benefit of vellus hair would have been heat insulation. Again, we have other means of providing that protection, for example, scarves.

How often should I dermaplane?

If you are doing it for the hair removal aspect, 6-8 weeks. If it is for skin rejuvenation purposes, every 8 weeks.

Add a BOOST to amplify results!

BOOST Mild Peels

BOOST peels are classified as mild skin acids. BOOSTS can be used to pre-treat the skin before transitioning into stronger skin peels. They are great for seasonal maintenance and can be added to your dermaplaning service to amplify results.

Choose your Boost

👉AHA (10-20%)- Relieves dry skin, reduces fines lines and pigmentation.
👉BHA (10-20%)- Cleanses and decongests oily skin.
👉Enzyme- Exfoliating peel ideal for all skin types and maintaining healthy skin.
👉Retinol & Vit C- Brightens the complexion and softens the skin texture of the skin.

Slow the Aging Process: Cell Metabolism and Anti Aging

slow aging process
Is it possible to slow the aging process?

As we age our bodies will inevitably go through many changes and stages. Our bodily functions begin to slow along with our lifestyles. We begin to notice changes in the way we look and feel.

Slowing of metabolism

One of the first things that may come to mind when considering the aging process is the slowing of metabolism. When we think about the declining rate of metabolism, most will only consider the metabolic rate of the digestive system. But what about the cell metabolism of our skin?

Our bodies are composed of billions of specialized cells. These cells are grouped according to functions, and make up the different body systems and organs within the human anatomy.

The largest organ found within the body is the skin. Its main function is to protect the body from the external environment and regulate body temperature. It is a reflection of your current health, age, and oftentimes your lifestyle.

Skincare Tips for your late 20’s to mid 30’s

Lazy Skin Cells

Typically in our late 20’s – mid 30’s our skin cells slow down and become “lazy”. They no longer regenerate at the same speed in which it used to in our earlier years.

This laziness creates a backlog of dead cells on the surface of the skin and paves the way for the appearance of fine linesdehydrationpremature wrinkles, and dullness. Sun damage endured over the years now begins to reach the surface in the form of brown spots (hyperpigmentation), broken capillaries, and excessive ruddiness.

Your Anti-Aging Journey: Start It Sooner Than Later.

The first step in the anti-aging journey is prevention. It is never too early to start caring for your skin and preparing for what the years will bring. We recommend younger clients begin with a healthy homecare regimen which includes proper cleansing and hydration day and night.

A fresh cleanse in the morning and daily moisturizer with a minimum 20 SPF, and a hydrating eye gel to keep your eye area looking vibrant.

At the end of the day we suggest a double cleanse to first clear the skin of daily environmental buildup/makeup, and then wash the bare skin itself. This routine will keep your skin balanced and protected throughout the day and night.

photofacials yeg

For younger clients beginning a professional skin treatment schedule, Photofacials will deliver immediate results in the clearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and tightening of pores and texture. With a refresher treatment every 6 months your skin will defy age!

At this stage in the aging process resurfacing and exfoliation are vital in keeping your cells active, and clear of nutrient blocking dead cells.

Changes and Damage to Our Skin.

The changes and damage to our skin do not happen overnight, and everyday time slowly claims its youth. Therefore, once the skin reaches a more advanced stage in aging, reversing the effects of time is a process that also takes time and commitment.

Understanding your skin care products and the interactions of the ingredients with your skin is important when selecting your products. What may have worked a few years ago may not be ideal for your skin now.

Ensure that your products are age appropriate, targeted to treat your areas of concern, and most importantly protect your skin from further damage with minimum SPF20.

PROFESSIONAL SKINCARE AT HOME

Professional treatments should go hand in hand with clinical grade skincare products to help maximize results. This is why we offer 15% OFF all Glo Skin Beauty products in-store with any skincare treatment.

Anti Aging Skin Care: A Plan of Action in Your 40’s and 50’s

anti aging skin care

Anti Aging Skin Care Treatment Steps

STEP 1: Resurfarcing and Refirming

Anti aging skin care regimens begin with resurfacing and firming of the skin. Resurfacing is achieved through esthetic procedures that remove layers of damaged skin. As a result, this boosts the regeneration of skin cells and collagen production which results in the firming of the skin.

Methods of resurfacing include chemical, mechanical, and light-based treatments. Dérmica offers all 3 types:

Chemical👉 Chemical peels deliver varying depths of chemical exfoliation through the application of enzymes or hydroxy acids

Mechanical👉 Dermaplaning, delivers a fine shave that removes dull surface skin and vellus facial hair with the use of a medical-grade scalpel.

Light-based👉 The ALISA photofacial will boost collagen production, speed of cell regeneration, tighten pores, and plump the skin.


STEP 2: Clearing away hyperpigmentation

Our next step is to clear away hyperpigmentation such as sun damage and age spots.  The ACLARA photofacial removes unwanted pigment. It dissolves pigment by first pulling it to the surface, then forcing it to shed the spot within days.

Once your desired results are achieved you can maintain results with a refresher every 6 months, keeping your skin looking fresh and vibrant!
