Photofacials safely treat major skin conditions, however, there can be potential side effects. When present, certain factors can cause an increased risk of side effects. Examples of contraindications are health conditions, recent treatments, or use of certain products. As a result, we have created an IPL photofacial pretreatment guide for your review before booking online. In addition, your laser technician will conduct a thorough consultation on the day of your treatment.

French, s’il vous plait..
French bikini hair removal offers more options for shaping and further removal. Most of the hair is removed from the front leaving a small patch of hair, this includes 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. Opt for the symmetrical strip down the centre for a little more coverage. This look will bring the hairline straight down toward the underside, giving you a clean underside.
Contrary to popular belief, the traditional method of Brazilian bikini hair removal does NOT leave you free of all hair below the waist. The traditional method leaves only a small strip down the centre. This look was modeled after the thong bikini bottom worn in Brazil which leaves little to the imagination, but still leaves a “little”. So for you thong sporting ladies, a Brazilian bikini wax will give you the same flexibility with shape and coverage that the French bikini wax offers, but also clears any unwanted strays from the backside leaving you confident from any angle.
Once upon a time in… Hollywood
Who needs hair down there anyway? If this is your motto then opt for Hollywood bikini hair removal and liberate yourself from pubescent hair growth. The name is influenced by the adult industry associated with the provocative nature of the famous city of fast cars, bright lights, fame, and fortune. This method 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 technician.

Leave your brows to our PROS
If you are a new guest, your Service Provider will ensure the safety of the service by asking you a few questions. Though it is a common esthetics service, there are some contraindications we must review before treating your brows.
Exposure to some perm solutions can cause reactions to sensitive skin such as itching, redness, etc. Therefore, we ask that you avoid exfoliants, retinol, AHA, and BHA on the brows 5 days prior to your appointment.
Tint or no tint?
Adding custom tint to your lamination will enhance your brows in a natural way. We use vegan tints that are made without the use of raw animal materials. If you choose to add tint to your service, be prepared to fall in love with your brows! We use

Before and After Gallery
How does it work?
Eyebrow lamination involves securing the hair in an upward stroke pattern, then setting them into place with a gentle brow perming solution. This simple procedure is generally done in 1 hour and lasts 4-6 weeks.
Does eyebrow lamination cause damage?
Frequent perming of the brows can cause damage to your brows. We recommend waiting 6 weeks between appointments. Exposure to some perm solutions can also cause reactions to sensitive skin such as itching, redness, etc. Certain conditions or medications compromise the skin. In other words, while the perm solution may be safe, other steps in the lamination process make the service unsafe for some clients.
If you are new to Dérmica, your service provider will conduct a consultation through the use of an intake form. If you are a returning guest, please advise your service provider of any changes to your health or medications. This will help us ensure your service goes smoothly.
