What is the best facial for anti-aging?

best facial for anti aging

The best facial for anti aging can be found at Dérmica! Our facial menu offers a variety of facials. Most of our facials include light extractions, a nourishing mask application, and Pressure-Point facial massage; All key players in the fight against aging.

How often should you have a facial?

We generally recommend booking every 4-6 weeks. However, this period depends on your age, skin type, and even work environment!

When we are young we tend to have oilier skin. This results in acne breakouts which we in turn try to cover up with cheap makeup. At least we were using cheap makeup back then!

Although our skin is tight and our pores are relatively small in our youth, years of this cycle make way for the changes we see as we age.

Environmental factors

There are certain environmental factors that will increase the rate at which your pores need a cleanup. Restaurant workers, particularly those in the kitchen, may see their skin become congested over time. This in part can be due to higher than normal temperatures. Those working outdoors during the summer may experience the same, due to similar reasons.

Do facials help with wrinkles?

Facials help with wrinkles to a certain degree: The exfoliation included in our facials will clear away your skin allowing products to be better absorbed. The pore extractions will clean your pores from within. The mask application will deliver anti-aging benefits through different key ingredients. The pressure-point facial massage will promote blood flow to your facial muscles.

However, for these effects to take place, facials must be a regular part of your routine. If facials have not been a part of your routine and you are looking to reverse some signs of aging, we recommend the ALISA photofacial.

Dermaplaning Post Care | The Essential Guide

dermaplaning post care

A popular option for skin maintenance

Dermaplaning has quickly become a popular option for skin maintenance. The exfoliation technique uses a surgical scalpel to gently smooth away dead skin cells and facial hair. People love dérmaplane because it delivers instant results.

The procedure leaves your skin looking fresh, smooth, and glowing. Proper post-care in the days after your dermaplaning service is essential to achieving optimal results and prolonging that coveted radiant complexion.


After your dermaplaning service, your skincare technician will provide you with a Post-Treatment Guide outlining instructions.


Apply SPF 30 or higher when exposed to sun. Avoid direct exposure to sun for 48 hours.


To prevent irritation or redness, avoid using exfoliating agents, retinol, or harsh chemicals on your skin immediately after dermaplaning.


It’s advisable to wait at least 24 hours before applying any cosmetics to avoid clogging your freshly exfoliated pores.


Although tempting, it is essential to refrain from touching skin to avoid any potential infections or irritation after your service.


Your skin may experience slight dryness or sensitivity post-service. To combat this, it’s vital to keep your skin well-hydrated. Drinking water throughout your day will help hydrate fresh cells.


Hot water and excessive heat can strip away the skin’s natural oils and lead to dryness. Opt for lukewarm water instead.

Dermaplaning unveils a fresh layer of skin, making it essential to protect it from external aggressors and dehydration. A hydrating serum and moisturizer helps retain and restore moisture.

What is the best moisturizer for my skin type?

Finding the best moisturizer for your skin type can be difficult. When it comes to skincare, the effectiveness and suitability of a moisturizer can vary depending on individual needs and preferences. Finding your perfect match can be narrowed down by considering the following factors.


Understanding your skin type is essential for selecting the best moisturizer for you. Whether you have dry, oily, combination, or sensitive skin will influence the type of moisturizer you should use. Different formulations cater to specific skin types in order to provide optimal hydration, address skin concerns, and maintain a healthy pH balance. During skincare visits, your technician helps determine your skin type to properly select products for your service.


active ingredients

Look for moisturizers with high-quality ingredients that are beneficial to your specific skin type. Common ingredients include humectants like hyaluronic acid, emollients like natural oils and butters, and additional active ingredients that target specific concerns. Examples of concerns include acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, and redness.

Understanding how the ingredients interact with your skin type can make the selection process much easier. During skincare visits, your technician selects products specific to your skin type, according to the active ingredients.


Moisturizers come in various forms such as creams, lotions, and gels. Choose a texture that feels comfortable on your skin and suits your preference. For example, if you have oily skin, a lightweight lotion may be more suitable, whereas those with dry skin may prefer a rich creamy texture. Skin care services are finished with aftercare products which include serums and moisturizers. This is a great way to try on your potential daily moisturizer.


Skincare is a personal journey, and what works for one person may not work for another. Factors such as fragrance, packaging, brand, allergies, and price can also influence your decision when choosing a moisturizer. Professional products tend to have a higher retail price due to their clinical-grade ingredients. These products are not only meant to maintain a healthy moisture balance, but they also help treat skin conditions.

It’s always a good idea to do some research and consult with your skincare professional to determine which moisturizer is your best match. Check out our online store.

Skincare Edmonton Whyte

skincare edmonton dermica

Located on Whyte avenue in Edmonton, Dérmica offers skincare and other spa services.

We’d like to be part of your skincare regimen! Check out our multiple skincare spa services:


skincare edmonton whyte

Facials are a great way to keep your pores clean and free of oil or impurities that can cause breakouts. We recommend booking a facial every 4-6 weeks.


chemical peel edmonton whyte ave dermica

Chemical peels are great for skin rejuvenation because they accelerate the cell turnover rate by chemically penetrating beneath the surface of the skin to dissolve away dead skin cells. If you are treating a concern, such as sun damage, fine lines, or hyperpigmentation, we recommend 4-8 sessions.


Photofacials use Intense Pulse Light (IPL) technology to diminish brown spots, redness, broken capillaries, fine lines and other textural damage. We recommend 4-6 treatments when treating the above skin concerns.


Dérmaplane delivers a fine shave that removes the dull surface skin and vellus facial hair as the technician gently grazes a medical-grade scalpel edge over the surface of the skin.


Professional treatments should go hand in hand with clinical grade skincare products that will help to maximize results.

This is why we offer 15% OFF all Glo Skin Beauty products in-store with any of the treatments above.

Can I use the same products for morning and night?

“Can I use the same products for morning and night?” is a common question asked by our clients. If your skin is at its prime, meaning it’s balanced and functioning at it’s best, your cleanser should be fine for morning and night use.

Keep in mind that “prime” doesn’t mean perfect skin for every skin type. If you are happy with your cleanser there is no need to change it. However, you may want to consider adding an oil cleanser for nighttime use. These are excellent at removing makeup and are often used as a first cleanse.

The decision to change moisturizers depend on what you are using. Basic moisturizers are fine for day or night. However, if you are using a moisturizer that contains sunscreen then you can’t use that at night. On the contrary, if you are using a product that contains retinol you can’t use that during the day.

Serums are the product to most likely have specific uses appropriate for certain times of day. For example, hyaluronic acid serums are best to use during the day when trans-epidermal water loss is highest. Vitamin C and E are good serums to use in the day time as they are good for sun protection.

Different beauty regimes

In addition, there are different regimes to consider when deciding whether or not to use the same products for morning and night. There are two types of regimes: maintenance versus treatment. During maintenance regimes you can cleanse and moisturize with the same products.

On the other hand, treatment regimes vary depending on what is happening with your skin. You may be able to use many of the same products if they are effective, but at night you may want to add products with ingredients to correct your skin concerns.


Professional products help maintain results of our treatments. Therefore, we offer 15% OFF all Glo Skin Beauty products in-store with any skincare treatment.

Ask your service provider for recommendations.
