What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a technique to deeply exfoliate your skin and remove small, fine baby hairs (a.k.a. vellus hairs), so your face glows and feels softer. Dermaplaning uses surgical blade at a 45-degree angle to gently scrape the outer layer of the epidermis which consists of dull dead skin cells.

2.

Will my hair grow back any different after Dermaplaning?

 

No, dermaplaning (using a surgical sterile blade to remove superficial skin cells and hair on the surface of the skin) will not cause increased hair growth. This procedure does not at all effect the hair cycle, which is regulated by cells deep within each hair follicle.

What is Microdermabrasion?  

 

Dead skin cells are exfoliated and vacuumed off the face with a machine that uses tips covered in tiny diamond crystals. The diamond tips—together with the strong suction—make it possible to exfoliate the skin more thoroughly than other procedures and at home exfoliation. It's appropriate for most skin types because it is non-invasive and can effectively reduce or eliminate wrinkles, acne and age spots.

What does LED therapy do?

 

A canopy type machine is placed over the face but not touching and offers multiple colours of light therapy dependent on the skins needs.  The blue-emitting lights work within a specific wavelength and intensity to kill acne-causing bacteria. Red-emitting light works on fine lights, laugh lines and overall skin tone and appearance. LED light can be used to help with scaring, pigmentation whilst remaining noninvasive.

5.

What is high frequency, and what does it help with?

 

High frequency allows a facialist to stimulate circulation and cell metabolism for younger-looking skin. Facialist also use it to treat and prevent large pores and acne by oxygenating the skin and producing an antiseptic effect. This technique uses a glass sterile probe which is passed over the skin which is prepped with a high frequency cream and mask and then provides a mild electrical current (non painful). This cannot be performed on those who are pregnant.

Is my skin in need of a chemical peel?

 

Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to: Reduce fine lines,treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging, improve the appearance of mild scars, treat certain types of mild acne, Reduce age spots, freckles, and dark patches (melasma) due to pregnancy or taking birth control pills, but most of all will improve the look and feel of skin. A course of peels would be recommended to treat a specific concern you may have. The application and the time stays on is max 5-6minutes but this is incorporated into a facial package to enjoy the treatment experience and time to relax.

How often do I need a facial?

 

We recommend that people have a professional facial about every three to five weeks. That’s how long it takes your skin to move through the full life cycle of skin cell growth and exfoliation. Everyone’s skin cycle differs. But then again there’s no harm to treating yourself to a skin MOT now and again!

What is Microneedling and does it hurt?

 

Microneedling, is a minimally invasive skin treatment in which a facialist intentionally creates tiny punctures in the top layer of skin using micro-fine needles. The needles usually measure somewhere from 0.5 to 1.5 millimeters in depth. The purpose of treatment is to generate new collagen and skin tissue for smoother, firmer, more toned skin. Mild side effects include peeling or redness (lasting 6-24hrs skin type dependent). Microneedling is great to treat wrinkles, scarring, acne, and skin pigmentation. The procedure is not offered to those who’s certain acne medications or for women who are pregnant.
