dermica photo facials edmonton

2. Photofacials

Runner up is the photofacial, more specifically, the ACLARA.

ACLARA removes hyper pigmentation caused by sun damage, aging, and acne scarring.

Photofacials change your skin in ways a facial cannot. For example, while a facial can clean pores, it cannot shrink them. The ALISA photofacial can. Photofacials are the next step up from a facial and are great for anti-aging.

1. The brow Sculpt

We were not surprised to learn that your absolute favourite is the dérmica brow Sculpt! Thank you for loving and trusting the way we do brows.

If you haven’t tried this service yet, add it to your visit next time :)

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.

Top 3 Chemical Peels

Let’s take a look at some of the most popular chemical peels and their benefits.

1. Glycolic Acid

glycolic acid peels yeg This is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and is made up of the smallest molecules compared to others.
Do not let the molecule size fool you though, glycolic acid is a powerhouse in terms of performance and one of the most popular choices. This acid exfoliates the outermost layers of skin but also has the ability to penetrate deeper into the skin and stimulate cell turnover. Glycolic acid works from the inside out which provides a plumper appearance. Think lighten, brighten and tighten.

2. Lactic Acid

lactic acid peels edmonton Yes you guessed it, this acid is milk-derived and is also an AHA. Lactic acid is wonderful for hydration, brightening and the best choice for those with sensitive skin. This is one of the more gentle peels and a great option for beginners or those who are not a candidate for more aggressive peels.

3. Salicylic Acid

acne peels yeg This is a Beta Hydroxy Acid (BHA) and is derived from willow bark. This acid is made up of a larger molecular size which means it works on the outer layers of skin. This acid is antiseptic and anti-inflammatory making it the top choice when dealing with acne, redness and oily skin. We like to think of this acid like Pac-Man running along the surface of the skin gobbling up dead skin cells and breaking through oil.

March Special: ALL Peels $85

DERMICA chemical peels

March 2019 Special: ALL Chemical Peels- $85

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.
