Your brows point down when you wish they pointed up or sideways? 😳
If you answered yes to any of the questions above, it may be time to try the newest brow service available! But first, let’s review- is Brow Lamination safe?
Brow lamination enhances your natural brows as it sets your brows in place causing them to look thicker and fuller. After laminating, we finish the look with our signature wax and tint service, the Dérmica sculpt.
The service takes about one hour and last 4-6 weeks.

How many treatments do I need before I see results from my IPL Hair Removal treatments?
Results are immediate!
Although your hair may require 8 – 12 sessions, you will experience lasting results with each treatment including your first.
In fact, your initial treatment will give you the most noticeable reduction. Clients report an average of 20-60% less hair growth following their initial treatment. Not only do they experience less hair growth, but the texture of the hair also becomes finer and delayed in growth rate.
Now don’t get too comfortable as this effect is not permanent just yet.
Within the first few days following your session, your hair may appear to have stopped growing. Your hair will resume growth by week 2 and at this point you might think your treatment was unsuccessful. Keep in mind that this resumed growth is a combination of active hair bulbs and inactive hair now shedding from its follicle post-treatment. Once the shedding process has ended, we are able to measure the effects of the treatment.
Your next treatment will be scheduled within 4 weeks after your first session.
Each treatment following your initial session will increase the amount of reduction by approximately 10% to maximum of 80-98% overall reduction.
Depending on the number of sessions to date, your recorded progress, and expected sun exposure, we may reduce the frequency of your treatments. You will start off with a 4 week pause between treatments, later increasing to 5 weeks, then 6 weeks until you reach your treatment goal.
Your feedback is key when tracking progress AND making progress.
At every visit your technician will be asking a series of questions in order to measure the number of sessions required to achieve your desired results. Additionally, your feedback can also used to make accurate adjustments to the intensity level of your treatment.
After each visit please ensure to track the following to share with your technician at your next visit:
How much of a reduction have you experienced?
Has the texture/ thickness of the hair changed?
Has the colour of the treated hair changed? Is the hair light, medium, or dark tone?
How long did it take for your hair to grow back after your last session?
How frequently are you shaving the area?
If there was a reaction, how long did it last, and what type of reaction was it?
Be patient and realistic with your results
Although we would love to promise maximum results after 1 session, technology is not quite there yet! For now, expect to have up to 12 sessions over the span of 1-2 years. In the meantime, you can enjoy NOT having to deal with ingrown hairs, itchy razor bumps, embarrassing 5 o’clock shadows, daily shaving routine, or painful waxing!

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.
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.

YOUR BIKINI HAIR REMOVAL OPTIONS
The Brazilian leaves only a small strip down the centre. It will give you the same flexibility with shape and coverage that the French offers, but also clears any unwanted strays from the backside leaving you confident from any angle.
The Hollywood will clear all existing hair from front to bunny tail leaving you G-string ready all around. Many spas will refer to this technique as a Brazilian, so make sure to clarify with your laser technician.
The French removes most of the hair from the front, removal from underside, and excludes the backside. The flattering little v-patch will bring the hairline down 2-3 inches from the bikini line, and give you most coverage at the top and taper neatly into the back.
