Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation because they accelerate the cell turnover rate by chemically penetrating beneath the surface of the skin to dissolve away dead skin cells. If you are treating a concern, such as sun damage, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 4-8 sessions.
Photofacials use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology to diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and other textural damage. We recommend 4-6 treatments when treating the above skin concerns.
Chemical peels work due to their tiny size! Because of their molecular structure, these acids are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. As a result, they separate the upper layers of the skin which causes an accelerated cell turnover rate. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.
The acids used in professional peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin. The most commonly used acids include glycolic acid, trichloroacetic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, or carbolic acid (phenol).
Treatment or Maintenance
The number of treatments needed depends on the severity of the condition we are treating. However, even if we are not treating any major skin concerns, it’s a good idea to incorporate a couple of peels annually to your anti-aging skin regimen by the age of 30.
Chemical peels are a popular choice because they offer many benefits:

Dérmica offers microblading on Whyte Ave in Edmonton, AB. Microblading is an ever-popular semi permanent brow service. We use a fine sharp blade to make incisions into the skin in order to insert pigment into the epidermal layer.
Microbladed eyebrows are meant to look natural. Each individual hair stroke is carefully placed on the skin, building a beautiful and natural brow.
The day of your appointment- step by step
Your life is about to change! Be prepared to spend up to 3 hours at the spa, depending on the microblading level required.
Upon arrival, you will be asked to complete/update a medical history form. After, you will be escorted to your treatment room to get settled-in and comfy. Ask a staff member for an extra pillow or blanket to maximize your comfort.
Once you are settled in, the technician will begin a thorough consultation. The consultation includes colour selection and brow mapping.
Brow mapping provides a precise outline of the microblading. The outline gives you a guide of the areas in need of fill, and ensures that the shape suits your face and aligns with your other features.
Once you have approved the design created by your technician, she proceeds with numbing your skin.
Quick Tips for Procedure Day
Seeing that you must try to keep your brows dry, arrive to your appointment with freshly-washed hair. This will help you avoid wetting your brows in the shower for the first 2 days after your procedure.
In the same fashion, try to arrive at your appointment with a fresh face.
Numbing time is usually half an hour. With this is mind, clients like to bring something to occupy their time. In any event, we have wifi and magazines to pass the time.
What to expect after your procedure
Your technician will provide you with after-care instructions. Following the post care is most important. The first thing to remember is to not touch the brows! The brows will darken over the next 2-3 days. In addition, you may experience itchiness as the brows begin to heal and scab. In due time, scabbing will shed. Consequently, the true colour is revealed.
Although your brows may look great on the initial date of service, once shed and healed, the results may differ. We want to ensure that your brows are up to par with your expectations, and for that reason, we include a complimentary Refresher session in our microblading services.

Located on Whyte Ave in Edmonton, Alberta, we offer dermaplaning in our skincare service menu. Dermaplaning is considered to be superficial and is safe for most people. There are typically no side effects from this skin treatment.
The process immediately brightens the complexion, evens skin tone, and leaves the skin feeling supple and smooth.
The technician gently grazes a medical-grade scalpel over the surface of the skin. This process delivers a fine shave that removes the dull surface skin and vellus facial hair.
Lighten and Brighten.
Dermaplaning helps to remove hyperpigmentation. This process is most effective when combined with the AHA BOOST or Vit C BOOST. The dermaplane process will clear the surface of the skin. As a result, deeper penetration of the acid is attainable to target specific conditions.
Can it treat acne?
In our professional opinion, we do not recommend dermaPLANE as a primary means of treating acne. The risk outweighs the potential benefit when compared to other more effective methods of acne treatment. Try our Treatment Selection Guide to see our recommendations.
When will I notice my results?
The results of dermaPLANE are seen immediately following the procedure. The goal is to leave the skin feeling softer and looking radiant. Contrast is most evident when comparing the appearance before and after service, in those who have major build up and visible hair growth.
Are there any side effects?
There are typically no side effects from the procedure. Your skin may feel slightly exposed and sensitive for 1-2 hours following. It is recommended that with any professional skin care service extended sun exposure is avoided for a minimum 24-hour period.
