Natural beauty is becoming more sought after. Clients want to love the skin they’re in and want to be able to limit their makeup worn on a daily basis. The rise of Medical Aesthetics is here! To put their best [natural] skin forward, clients are having intensive treatments performed and are using professional skin care at home.
Let’s talk treatments...
During this procedure, the MicroPen is used to create controlled micro-injuries to the skin in order to aid in the production of collagen and elastin (plumps, firms, smooths they skin). We do use a topical anesthetic for client comfort before treatment begins.
A Hyaluronic Acid blend is infused into the skin while performing collagen induction therapy to reduce...
✔ Fine lines
✔ Acne scars
✔ Saggy skin
✔ Skin texture
✔ Skin tone
✔ Stretch marks
With Eclipse MicroPen Elite we can treat virtually all parts of the body: head, face, neck, décolleté, arms, hands, legs, abdomen, thighs and buttocks.
During microneedling we infuse a Hyaluronic Acid blend into the skin. This smoothing blend of ingredients provides deep, long-lasting hydration on three levels: on the surface, deeper in the skin and by increasing the skin’s own hyaluronic acid production.
Microneedling using a pen system is much safer on the skin compared to using a dermal roller. Dermal rollers are an old school technique and can promote skin tearing which causes slower heal time for the skin. A pen device is less painful, less traumatic to the skin and has a faster heal time.
During this treatment a sterile blade is gently scraped along the skin to deeply exfoliate the skin’s top layer. This process also removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the top layer of the skin. The skin feels brighter and smoother.
Dermaplaning is often used to prepare the skin for a chemical peel. This service is recommended for hyperpigmentation, dryness, aging, excess oil and mild acne. Dermaplaning can also be performed on more sensitive skins like rosacea or skin with broken capillaries.
This treatment is not recommended for active cystic acne. If you have active acne wait for your skin to heal before having dermaplaning done. We recommend starting with regular facials to call inflammation and move to chemicals peels to help treat acne prior to dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment to prep your skin for a more aggressive treatment and will also allow your at home products to work much more efficiently.
Dermaplaning does not cause the hair to grow back darker or thicker. This is a myth! It is psychologically impossible to change the structure of the hair by dermaplaning. Vellus hair is soft, fine, and light hair that covers most of the body, including the face. During changes of hormones such, as but not limited to - puberty, pregnancy and menopause some vellus hair changes to terminal hair.
Once the hair starts to grow back, after the dermaplaning procedure, the hair may feel different because it was cut straight across. In a few days it will go back to normal. The hair remains the same texture as before and will grow at the same speed.
This treatment provides a gentle exfoliation on the skin and can be used on the face, neck, décolleté and hands. Specific peels are even gentle enough to use on rosacea type skins!
Chemical peels dissolve and remove dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin. They are an excellent treatment to prep your skin for a more aggressive treatment and will also allow your at home products to work much more efficiently.
A chemical peel is great for any skin as they can refine skin texture and discolouration, minimize; oil, blemishes, black heads, milia and large pores, alleviate dry, dull and devitalized skins. Depening on the chemical chosen, we an specifically target dry skin, aging skin and oily/acneic skin. There are also multi-acid peels available to target a variety of skin concerns at once!
Not all chemical peels will cause peeling of the skin.
A chemical peel is not performed on broken skin, sun burnt skin or areas of extreme couperose (severe broken capillaries).
Chemical peels are often used in conjunction with a physical exfoliation technique such as Dermaplaning or Microdermabrasion. The physical exfoliation makes way for the chemical to work more effectively and penetrate deeper.
A non-invasive, non-chemical exfoliation treatment. Microdermabrasion utilized a wand with a diamond encrusted tip with suction that is scraped across the surface of the skin to gently abrade the skin, removing dead skin cells, revealing a smooth and glowing skin.
Microdermabrasion also promotes circulation, refines skin texture, minimizes oil, blemishes, black heads, milia and large pores, alleviates dry, dull and devitalized skins.
Microdermabrasion is not performed on broken skin, sun burnt skin or areas of extreme couperose.
Microdermabrasion is often used in conjunction with a chemical exfoliation technique such as a Lactic or Glycolic acid peel. The physical exfoliation (microdermabrasion) makes way for the chemical to work more effectively and penetrate deeper.
