Every so often I look at my treatment menu and think “What more can I offer?”, then I recruit a friend to be my guinea pig and, most times, a new treatment is born!
My most recent “discovery” is the amazing combination of Dermaglow Microdermabrasion and Deep Skin Ionization. It’s the total package: resurfacing, anti-acne, anti-aging, firming and clarifying.
This combination of treatments is aggressive, I wouldn’t recommend it for sensitive skin types or immediately before a big event. It’s perfect for more resilient skin types who want to kick start a new skin care routine or need a pick me up after a busy summer. The Before and After photo above shows the results of a series of 6 treatments, spaced 2 weeks apart and paired with a home care routine. If you want to determine whether this treatment is good for you, drop me an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can discuss your options. If you ready to book, go here!
The I Derm Deep Skin Ionization Facial, also known as the Iderm® Treatment, uses a direct galvanic current to introduce water soluble solutions into the skin, kill bacteria associated with acne and firm the skin. Dermaculture has utilized Ionization techniques for the treatment of skin for over 70 years. The Iderm® Treatment (a proprietary treatment technology owned by Dermaculture) introduced the concept of Ionization to the entire skin care industry. The photo above displays the galvanic mask (with the electrodes on the outside; the opposite of how it is used during treatment) for a feature in German Vogue.
What is an Iderm® Treatment?
The Iderm® treatment is the most comprehensive approach to treating the skin. This treatment uses a direct galvanic current which effectively introduces water soluble solutions into the skin by a process called iontophoresis. Skin naturally rejects whatever we put on it, so the only way we can truly affect the lower layers of the skin, is to draw vitamin rich solutions into the dermal tissue by means of electricity.
Is the Iderm® Treatment Safe?
The Iderm® treatment process uses a very low intensity current, a milliamper (1/1000th of an ampere) which is both safe and effective for application to the skin.
What Results Can I Expect?
You will notice how exceptionally clean and rejuvenated your skin looks and feels after the first treatment. A combination of treatments and proper use of skin care products will give your skin the appearance of a smoother, more youthful tone and texture.
