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

dermica medesthetics facials Our Enzyme Peel is a 20% multi-fruit acid complex made of white grape wine and fresh fruit pulp that gently exfoliates the upper epidermis while wine polyphenols condition the skin. A great introductory-level peel ideal for all skin types.

Alivia ME: Vascular Lesion Treatment

Alivia ME (Vascular Lesion Removal Photofacial)

Wondering where the redness and broken capillaries on your face came from? Vascular lesions are due to conditions such as Rosacea, couperose skin, sensitized skin, or simply genetically sensitive skin. These types of conditions are characterized by frequent, consistent redness, and visible redness and broken capillaries. They are most commonly found in the facial and neck area. If left untreated these conditions can worsen, or mutate the skin’s texture. Dérmica’s Alivia ME Treatment will diminish redness and dissolve broken capillaries on areas of the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands!

ALIVIA ME PHOTOFACIAL
Description: Vascular lesions are due to conditions such as Rosacea, couperose skin, sensitized skin, or skin trauma. These types of conditions are characterized by frequent, consistent redness, and visible redness and broken capillaries. They are most commonly found in the facial and neck area. If left untreated these conditions can worsen, or mutate the skin’s texture.

We treat these conditions by emitting a light beam into the skin which is absorbed by different skin lesions. Through selective photothermolysis, the light pulse selectively destroys a specified target without damaging the surrounding tissue, causing the blood to coagulate and the vessel to break up into particles that are naturally filtered away through the body’s lymphatic system.

Alivia ME is performed using Sharplight’s Formax-VP System. This equipment delivers quick pulses of light into the skin, targeting only the selected area. The hand piece also features a contact cooling tip that cools the skin being treated, adding maximum comfort and protection.

Time frame: 45 minutes

Recommended sessions: 4-6

Downtime required: 24 hrs

Pre-treatment protocols:
  • Must not currently be on or have used Accutane or any other oral prescription acne medications in the past 12 months
  • If currently using any products containing AHA/BHA/Retin A/Vitamin A on the area being treated, you must discontinue usage 2 weeks prior to procedure
  • Must wait a minimum of 4 weeks (or up to 6 weeks for darker skin types) from last tanning (artificial or natural) session
  • If currently on any prescription medications, check with your physician regarding possible photosensitivity

Contraindications:
  • Diabetes
  • Pregnancy
  • Disorders stimulated by light
