Glowing skin for Back-to-School!

Glowing skin for Back-to-School

September has arrived, along with the beginning of a new season! As we transition from Summer to Fall, our skin must adapt to the new environment. Temperature and humidity begin to drop drastically, and the skin must work harder to maintain proper hydration due to wind and cold. To maintain a glowing complexion and radiant healthy skin, look no further than our favourite facial treatments! Here are three popular treatments offered at Dermapure that can restore your glow or help treat your specific skin condition.

1. Microdermabrasion

Many people mistakenly believe that microdermabrasion is too abrasive for thin or sensitive skin. However, this gentle and safe technique is the perfect way to revive the complexion, regardless of your skin type.

What is it?
Microdermabrasion mechanically removes part of the corneal layer from the epidermis using a small tip covered with diamond crystals that exfoliate the surface layer of the skin.

What are the benefits?
Although our skin cells regenerate every 4 weeks, they can remain on the surface of the skin giving it a dull appearance. By eliminating the dead skin cells, microdermabrasion promotes an even, radiant complexion. Its exfoliating action also accelerates skin regeneration while refining skin texture and enhancing the effectiveness of cosmeceutical products.

How does the treatment work?
The duration of the microdermabrasion treatment is 1 hour. We recommend repeating the treatment at each change of season, as well as before other treatments such as injections or ThermageTM, as it helps to prepare the skin and optimize results. A treatment plan of 5 to 6 sessions may be recommended to significantly improve the complexion and texture of your skin.

2. Glycolic Peel

Glycolic peels chemically exfoliate the skin to remove dead cells and reveal a more even, radiant complexion. The concentration of glycolic acid varies between 20% and 40%, thus it is possible to have a superficial exfoliation or a more in-depth treatment, depending on the needs of your skin.

What is it?
This treatment uses glycolic acid – a derivative of fruit acid with exfoliating properties – to free the skin from debris and toxins. Unlike other formulas, glycolic acid does not cause any skin peeling post-treatment.

What are the benefits?
By decongesting pores and acting on different depths of the skin, glycolic peels reveal and even, radiant complexion, while helping destroy acne-causing bacteria. The surface of the skin is smoothed, pigmentation spots are faded, and the skin texture is refined.

How does the treatment work?
The glycolic peel treatment lasts for 30 minutes. We recommend repeating the treatment at each change of season. You can also opt for a more regular treatment plan and repeat the treatment on a monthly basis or alternate with other complementary treatments, such as microdermabrasion, to maximize your results.

3. Oxygen Serum Infusion

Oxygen Serum Infusion is perfect for deep-down skin hydration and rejuvenation. It’s a favourite celebrity treatment, as it immediately reveals a glowing complexion and helps your look your best for important events such as a wedding or a public appearance.

What is it?
During the treatment, the face is first cleaned and a serum specific to your needs is then applied to the area to be treated – either the face, neck or décolleté. Then, the pressurized oxygen is released and held a few millimeters from the skin to promote the absorption of the active ingredients contained in the serum.

What are the benefits?
This treatment combines the power of deep hydration (thanks to oxygen under pressure) and that of high-performance cosmeceuticals. Deeply hydrated, make-up application becomes smoother on the skin. The key: plumped, revitalized and glowing skin!

How does the treatment work?
This treatment lasts for 1 hour and offers immediate results. You can also opt for a treatment plan of 5 to 6 sessions to prolong the effect and optimize the results of this treatment.
