Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin procedure that involves using a sharp tool to exfoliate the surface of your skin, while also removing small, fine hairs.
Dermaplaning is quick, easy, and requires no downtime. However, you do need to wait at least two weeks until the next session. Recommended to wait 4-6 weeks in between sessions.
Dermaplaning is virtually painless, the only possible side effect is slight redness, which fades almost immediately. Try it before a chemical peel or facial because it allows products to sink deeper into the skin with the aim of quicker or better results.
Microdermabrasion is a noninvasive cosmetic procedure. The specialist rubs fine crystals onto the skin with a wand that gently exfoliates the surface, removing the top layer. The aim is to make the skin appear younger.
The procedure should not be painful. People can have treatments weekly, every 2 weeks, or monthly, depending on their skin type and the reason for treatment.
Most people request microdermabrasion to rejuvenate the complexion of the face and neck, but a specialist can perform the procedure on any area of skin.
Esthemax Hydro-Jelly Masks
HydroJelly Mask, infused with electrolytes, are the most favored peel-off masks by beauty professionals! The masks compress and seal the contours of the skin to allow for complete absorption of nutrients and hydration to the deepest later of the skin. HydroJelly masks have a natural cooling and soothing effect that is not only refreshing, but also helps firm and revitalize the skin for a healthy glow. Add a mask to a derma plane or microdermabrasion treatment for best results.
Glycolic acid is the gold standard in chemical peel formulations and is the go-to for many professional skin therapists for its proven ability to transform the health and appearance of a multitude of skin types. Glycolic acid has a small molecular structure, giving it the ability to travel deep into the layers of the skin. Once there, the acid dissolves excess sebum and dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter, and younger-looking skin. Prior to your appointment—at least a week, but ideally more—avoid all forms of exfoliation—treatments and products—since this will only serve to damage and irritate skin. While exfoliating cleansers and scrubs might be the obvious products to steer clear of, you should also check your skincare routine for products with any AHAs, BHAs, PHAs, and certain botanicals since these ingredients possess exfoliating properties.
While the term “peel” makes the treatment sound harsh, it’s actually quite gentle. You’ll feel some tingling, but there’s no burning, redness, or discomfort. It is common to experience redness, dryness, and peeling. Typically, immediately after the peel, the skin will feel tight and look red. With some, by day two to three, post-peel skin can begin to slough and shed. The level of peeling again depends on the intensity of the peel. With mild peels, expect gentle sloughing, and with stronger peels, skin can peel more dramatically. The complete turnaround time typically is between five to seven days. In this time, be sure to treat skin gently.
Have breakout-prone skin? Salicylic acid is a BHA that’s effective at targeting the oil glands. This type of peel is great for someone with congested, acne-prone skin, as salicylic acid is oil-soluble so it penetrates deeply into your pores to clear congestion. It can also clear away oils that build up and cause comedones (aka whiteheads and blackheads). Plus, it has anti-inflammatory properties that can offer relief to inflamed breakouts. The level of peeling again depends on the intensity of the peel. With mild peels, expect gentle sloughing, and with stronger peels, skin can peel more dramatically. The complete turnaround time typically is between five to seven days. In this time, be sure to treat skin gently.
TCA peels are a stronger medium-depth peel that penetrates deeper than the glycolic or salicylic acid peels, making them a good choice for those with scarring or pigmentation issues.
TCA peels can help with minimizing fine lines, sun damage, and acne scars, warning that it’s not ideal for those with severely sensitive skin. They can produce great results, but downtime is required as your skin will peel for at least a week.
AquaGold is a very superficial microneedling procedure that deposits neurotoxins and fillers like Botox and Restylane into the top layers of the skin, to create a smooth texture with reduced pore size. This technique produces a natural appearing outcome, without any of the tell-tale signs of being injected. It can be used to: shrink pores, reduce lines, add glow, reduce redness, plump skin, create soft texture, reduce dark spots.
Waxing is one of the best ways to temporarily remove unwanted hair. It is more effective than shaving because it removes hair from the roots, not just from the skin’s surface. Over time, hair in waxed areas regrows lighter and more sparse, or not at all.
Even fine hair shadows the face, distorting and aging your features. Appointments are usually scheduled every 4 weeks. If this is your first waxing experience you can reasonably expect your results to last between 3 and 6 weeks with minimal growth in the days and weeks following your appointment, depending on how quickly your particular hair grows. Hair regrowth patterns are cyclical and you will notice an improvement in regard to the longevity of your results as you become regular with your waxing services.
