Elevate Hydration with EyEnvy

dermica medesthetics

What is this miracle serum?  

EyEnvy is a vegan lash and brow conditioner that amplifies your natural hair growth. It contains a combination of nutrient rich vitamins and peptides that elevate hydration and nourish the hair shaft. 

EyEnvy Conditioner is great for use on sparse areas of the lash & brow line to help promote new hair growth, or as a booster with your Lash Lift or brow Sculpt. 

How does it help? 

Processing, cleansing, cosmetics, and sun exposure can cause moisture loss which can cause premature colour fading and brittle lashes. The added nutrients in the conditioner are perfect for post-care as they lock in moisture and extend the life and efficacy of your service!

Take advantage of our monthly spa special! Add the LASH LIFT and EyEnvy promo to your dérmica beauty routine for only | LASH LIFT w TINT $160  | LASH LIFT $140.

LASH LIFT Q & A

Q: What is a LASH LIFT?
A: Lash lifts are a gentle form of lash perming that curls the natural lashes along the lash line. It gives the appearance of longer more feminine lashes.

Q: How does it work?
A: The first step is to open the bonds in the hair, giving flexibility within the mid shaft where the curl is found. The second step sets the lashes into position and seals the hair shaft. The third step reintroduces moisture back into the lashes.

Q: How long does it last?
A: Lash lifts can last up to 12 weeks. This depends on after-care products used and thickness of lashes. Gentle products are recommended on eye area and minimal rubbing. Thick lashes are more resistant and will fall faster than thin lashes.

Q: Will the lash lift damage my lashes?
A: It is recommend that clients wait 12 weeks between lash lifts. This allows you hair to recover and regenerate new growth. EyEnvy will condition and hydrate hair follicles for stronger-than-ever lashes.

Q: How do I care for my lashes following the treatment?
A: You must avoid water, makeup, and pressure on the lashes for 48hrs. Afterwards you can return to your regular routine and products. It is recommended to sleep on your back in order to avoid bending the lashes overnight. Using a lash comb to lift and operate the lashes will help set.

Q: Are there any allergies I must be aware of?
A: It is rare for reactions to occur as the products are kept strictly on the lashes.

  • who have sensitivity to latex are not recommended to have the procedure, as the adhesive used does contain latex.
  • If you have ever reacted to artificial lash glue used for strip lashes, you are at risk of having a reaction.
  • Typical allergic reaction will cause the eyes to swell for up to 72 hours.

To Peel or Not to Peel?

What can a chemical peel do for me?

The chemicals used in chemical peels are acids and they are derived from natural sources. A peel involves chemically removing the outermost layers of the skin which in return promotes exfoliation and cell turnover. Depending on the type of peels used they can help treat fine lines, textural issues, acne, scarring, redness and provide a fresher, healthier appearance to the skin.

Chemical peels can be done on any area of the body, most commonly the face, neck, chest, hands and back.

Peels range in strength and have amazing benefits, however, they contain powerful peeling agents and have the ability to really hurt someone if not properly administered. Through a a proper consultation, your professional service provider will educate you about the peel and the expected outcomes including post treatment instructions.

Different peels can be mixed together and are known as blended peels. They can also be mixed with other ingredients such as vitamin c, hylauronic acid and dead sea minerals to pack an extra punch and provide a variety of additional benefits.

Whether you’d like to use peels as an anti aging method, or have a clear skin goal, your service provider can create a treatment plan customized for you.

September Special: Peels

Introducing the newest member of Dérmica’s Peel family- “Retinol + C Peel Boost”

September 2018 Special: 25% OFF all Chemical Peels

To kick off the season, our monthly special is 25% OFF all chemical peels.
All of our peels have been designed to safely remove the outer layers of the skin through the application of organic acids derived from various natural sources. This process brings fresh plump cells to the surface of the skin giving it a vibrant, healthy, smooth and even appearance.
This special is not valid with any other offer/promotion. No pre-purchasing; Ends Sep. 30, 2018.

How do Chemical Peels work?

Chemical peels work by separating the upper layers of the skin causing an accelerated cell turnover rate. Because of their molecular structure, they are able to penetrate past the acid mantle of the skin and deep into the layers beneath the surface of the skin. This causes your skin to shed and regenerate a new layer of skin in a 1 to 2 week period.

The acids we use in our professional chemical peels are typically derived from natural sources and produced for safe usage on the skin.

CHEMICAL PEEL SELECTION

ENZYME PEEL
