Alivia ME: Vascular Lesion Treatment

Alivia ME (Vascular Lesion Removal Photofacial)

Wondering where the redness and broken capillaries on your face came from? Vascular lesions are due to conditions such as Rosacea, couperose skin, sensitized skin, or simply genetically sensitive skin. These types of conditions are characterized by frequent, consistent redness, and visible redness and broken capillaries. They are most commonly found in the facial and neck area. If left untreated these conditions can worsen, or mutate the skin’s texture. Dérmica’s Alivia ME Treatment will diminish redness and dissolve broken capillaries on areas of the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands!

ALIVIA ME PHOTOFACIAL
Description: Vascular lesions are due to conditions such as Rosacea, couperose skin, sensitized skin, or skin trauma. These types of conditions are characterized by frequent, consistent redness, and visible redness and broken capillaries. They are most commonly found in the facial and neck area. If left untreated these conditions can worsen, or mutate the skin’s texture.

We treat these conditions by emitting a light beam into the skin which is absorbed by different skin lesions. Through selective photothermolysis, the light pulse selectively destroys a specified target without damaging the surrounding tissue, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the body’s lymphatic system.

Alivia ME is performed using Sharplight’s Formax-VP System. This equipment delivers quick pulses of light into the skin, targeting only the selected area. The hand piece also features a contact cooling tip that cools the skin being treated, adding maximum comfort and protection.

October Special: Dérmica Facial $75

Dérmica facial

Dérmica facials- your face will thank you ;-)


The Dérmica Facial

The Dérmica facial is our signature facial.
This 60-minute facial is always specialized to meet your skin’s specific needs.

Are you looking to nourish your mature skin?

All of our facial treatments are designed to target contributing factors and signs of aging. We incorporate highly concentrated products designed to help reverse/ prevent premature aging, therefore delivering optimal result.

After a deep cleanse, exfoliation, and hydrating steam, we pack the skin with nutrients with a relaxing anti-aging massage using brightening, hydrating serums.

At the end of the service you will notice your skin looks more vibrant, smooth, and hydrated!

Are you looking to treat acne-blemished skin?

We can engineer the Dérmica facial to treat acneic, acne prone, and blemished skin.
To treat this particular skin type, we start with a deep cleanse and deep exfoliation. This leaves your skin feeling refreshed and free of oils and build-up.

A relaxing ozone steam, which kills bacteria on the skin, leaves the skin and pores open for our fun extraction session!

We then do a thorough purging of the pores removing whiteheads, blackheads and pustules! Gross, but oh so rewarding!!

Now onto the more relaxing part of the treatment… masking and massage! Our pore minimizing mud mask helps close the pores and absorb excess oils.

We finish off by relaxing your facial muscles with a Pressure Point massage and lymphatic drainage massage.

Are you looking to treat dry or sensitive skin?

Do you find that no matter how often you moisturize your skin still feels tight, dry, or flaky? This could be due to an excessive build-up of dead and dry skin cells blocking your products from penetrating to the young cells below.

After a gentle cleanse, we follow up with a thorough exfoliation leaving your skin smooth and ready to soak up nutrients. The hydrating/calming mask will boost your hydration, help increase your moisture content, and soothe sensitivity.

Our relaxing Swedish facial massage will stimulate circulation, boosting your skin’s natural oil production.

During the month of October, the Dérmica facial is only $75! October is the perfect month to treat your skin to a Dérmica facial. Changes in weather often bring about changes in skin easily treatable with a Dérmica facial!

Demystifying Chemical Peels

Demystifying Chemical Peels

With the growing demand for MedEsthetics, chemical peels are becoming a popular service. For those of you who aren’t familiar with the service, the name can be a little discouraging, but let us demystify.

Professional chemical peels are designed to effectively and safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.

Chemical peels can be incorporated into your professional skin care regimen to help treat the appearance of fine lines, sun damage, pigmentation spots, and scarring.
