Dermaplaning is an effective and safe exfoliation procedure. It uses a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of the skin to remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. The tool is held at a 45 degree angle and is brushed along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells. The procedure is only performed on the face and is not used for shaping the eyebrows, which the hair is much thicker. It is generally a stand alone procedure, but it does create deeper product penetration boosting the products effects. The procedure makes skin look and feel smoother and will reduces the appearance of acne scars.

• Promotes smoother skin
• Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
• Reduces the appearance of acne scars
• Diminishes the look of fine lines
• Works on all skin types

Collagen Therapy (Microneedling) with Vitamin C Serum
A derma roller is a rolling “barrel” that’s studded with rows of fine needles. It’s used in salons to help treat for acne scars, wrinkles, pot marks and for the induction of collagen. The procedure is simple: the fine needles penetrate the surface of the skin to break down scar tissue and stimulate blood flow. The result is new skin tissue, strengthened collagen and scar reduction. Your skin after this treatment, now slightly punctured, will easily absorb skin care products.
The derma roller will only go as deep as the length of the needle, which varies depending on what size your technician decides is fit for your skin to start on.
Vitamin C serums are among the best anti-aging and skin-rejuvenating treatments on the market. When used after derma rolling, you will see smoother, younger skin in a matter of weeks. Because of this, vitamin C serums are the best creams to use after derma rolling.

Glycolic Facial Peel
Glycolic Acid is the holy grail for exfoliation, effectively removing the outermost layer of dead cells from the complexion, revealing brighter, fresher skin. Products that contain Glycolic Acid are used often to treat scarring, skin discoloration and signs of aging, like fine lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of glycolic acid peels
Improves Acne. Glycolic acid peels are often used to treat acne and acne scars. By delivering a stronger dose of glycolic acid than many over-the-counter acne treatments contain, the peel targets problem areas and removes layers of breakout-causing dirt, bacteria and dead skin cells from your face and neck.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure that uses fine crystals and a vacuum to remove dead skin cells on the face. The aim is to reduce the effect of fine lines and minor skin blemishes. It works on all skin types and shouldn’t cause any skin colour changes or scarring.
These are some of the common conditions which microdermabrasion is used to treat:
• Acne/blackheads. Microdermabrasion facials can reduce acne by clearing away dead skin cells and impurities that can block pores and lead to inflammation and spots.
• Acne Scars.
• Fine Lines And Wrinkles.
• Uneven Pigmentation.
