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

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.

BOOKING PROCEDURE


Consultation: 30 minutes. During your consult, your desired brow shape and color, and overall appearance is discussed. Please include a note on you online booking if you would like your procedure done on the same day of your consultation. Deposit may be required.

Procedure: 2hrs. During your 3D 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 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. If this is the case, a complete 3D Microblading session may be necessary. This refresher can be booked within 6 weeks to 12 months following initial procedure. Refreshers for purchases made with New Year Special can be booked Tuesday-Friday only.


PRE-TREATMENT GUIDE

Taking necessary precautions prior to treatment will ensure that your treatment can be performed safely and effectively.

1. Cleanse and moisturize morning and evening. Use a PRE CLEANSER such as our Glô Therapeutics Gentle Cream Cleanser in the evenings over your brow area.

2. AVOID caffeinated beverages 2 hours prior to appointment as this can cause skin sensitivity.

3. DO NOT consume alcohol 12 hours prior to scheduled appointment as this can cause excessive bleeding and sensitivity during treatment.

4. Apply SPF over brow area before sun exposure. AVOID direct sunlight and extended sun exposure.

5. DO NOT take the following medications/ supplements during the 72 hours leading up to your procedure: **Consult and report with your physician prior to stopping medication**
  • Acetylsalicylic Acid (ASA) medications. Example: Asprin™.
  • Anticoagulants (blood thinners)
  • Niacin
6. Direct contact with water will need to be avoided for 72 hours following your procedure; therefore make sure to wash your hair prior to your appointment.

POST-TREATMENT GUIDE

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 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.

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, use a warm face cloth avoiding drip from forehead onto brows.
  • Dampen a clean gauze or cotton pad with the POST 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 POST CREAM 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.
