Not all facials are created equal. Drawing on their vast knowledge of medical-grade products and techniques, the clinical aestheticians at Dermaworks conduct each service they provide under the supervision of Dr. Demetra Vassiliou. All Dermaworks products are carefully curated for their effectiveness, safety, and results. Under her guidance, you can be assured that your aesthetician will provide your skin with the best care to achieve your skincare goals. Whether you're looking to hydrate and tone, clarify and correct, or reveal a new, glowing, more youthful, even texture, our medical clinic aestheticians will work with you to create the glowing complexion you deserve.
Facials are not just a great way to relax and break away from everyday stress, the right facial will improve the long-term health and look of skin.
Largely misunderstood as a treatment, regular facials are an important step in achieving the healthy, glowing complexion you have always dreamed of having. Your health is visible to the world from the outside. Why shouldn't you take the time to give it the same care give to the rest of your body?
The condition of your skin, its elasticity, and its issues are unique, at Dermaworks we tailor each facial treatment specifically to the needs of your skin. A medical grade facial follows the same basic steps and treatments that you would expect from a spa facial, with the enhanced ability to use medical-grade products and treatments which are not available without the guidance of a physician.
A proper facial includes cleansing, exfoliation, and levels of moisture which nourish your skin to keep it in healthier, firmer, and looking fresh. Unlike “pre-packaged” facials, we begin each service with a personalized skin analysis to determine which treatments and facial solutions will be most effective.
Each facial at our Ottawa medical clinic begins with a thorough cleanse, so your technician can evaluate your skin to determine what will achieve the best results – for you. Following cleansing, your pores will be opened with warm steam, allowing your technician to safely perform pore extractions that cleanse pores and prevent blackheads, making skin vulnerable to breakouts, scarring, and may irreversibly stretch the pores. This treatment will remove dead skin cells to encourage a smooth, healthy looking-complexion.
Facials are not just beneficial for your skin, but they can also be very relaxing. Each customized facial at Dermaworks Medical Aesthetics Clinic includes a facial massage, which aids in the circulation of your blood and drainage of the lymphatic system. This will alleviate water retention, reduce the look of puffiness or swelling, and relax the facial muscles decreasing the look of fine lines and wrinkles.
While facial fluid retention, age and wrinkles can contribute to sagging, establishing a routine of professional facial treatments is key to keeping your skin healthy, firm, and glowing for the long term. No matter your gender or age, everyone will see and feel the benefits of a customized facial.
Just as you maintain your teeth with semi-annual trips to the dentist, maintaining the health of your skin – your body's largest organ and its first line of defense against environmental damage – regular facials can contribute to your overall health. By encouraging cell turn-over on a regular basis, you will be boosting your skin's ability to slough-off old skin cells and replace them with vibrant, new ones. Additionally, establishing a regular routine of facials at your Ottawa medical clinic may allow the effects of treatments such as BOTOX, dermal fillers, and laser treatments to last as long as possible.
As part of your customized medical-grade facial, your aesthetician will make personalized recommendations for products, treatments, and therapies that will benefit the overall health and appearance of your skin. As therapeutic as they are luxurious, our signature facials will allow you to begin the journey to a healthy, radiant complexion.
For an added fee a mini-Vibradermabrasion facial treatment may be added for an additional benefit. What is Vibradermabrasion? Vibradermabrasion is the latest technique in microdermabrasion, allowing an exfoliation that is simultaneously both safer and more effective. In traditional microdermabrasion, tiny exfoliating crystals are sprayed onto the skin at high speeds and then vacuumed off to remove the outermost layer of the skin. While this technique has been used for years with great results, there are some possible side effects that may be less than desirable. These side effects include redness, skin irritation, and broken capillaries. In addition, traditional microdermabrasion can require downtime of up to 24 hours for your skin to heal following the procedure.
With Vibradermabrasion, you can receive the same deep exfoliation without the side effects or added downtime. Vibradermabrasion removes the top layer of skin using finely textured metal paddles which vibrate against the surface of the skin at incredibly high speeds, sloughing off the outermost layer of skin. It has been shown to improve the skin’s health, tone, and texture over time, without the irritation or discomfort of microdermabrading crystals. Unlike traditional microdermabrasion, Vibradermabrasion may be used over larger areas on the body safely and effectively. No specific care or downtime is needed following treatment, and post treatment creams, serums and moisturizers may be applied immediately following treatment, promoting collagen production. Vibradermabrasion is beneficial for many skin concerns including:
With Vibradermabrasion, you will see results immediately, without a need for the skin to recover post-treatment. The best results will be achieved through a series of Vibradermabrasion treatments at your Ottawa medical clinic.
