CHEMICAL PEELS AND MICRODERMABRASION
Chemical Peels treat acne, acne scarring, fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and dryness. Using Dermo28’s skincare line, you will learn to treat all skin types with peels of different intensities.
Microdermabrasion uses an applicator with an abrasive surface to gently exfoliate the outer layer of the skin. This treatment rejuvenates the skin while targeting sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related conditions.
Learn an advanced, medical-grade resurfacing treatment that clears out pores and hydrates the skin. This non-invasive treatment utilizes different handpieces with multiple technologies. Its many benefits include skin hydration, brightness, plumping, and a clearer complexion. It improves the signs of aging by reducing fine lines and wrinkles, while increasing firmness, evening skin tone, texture and brown spots.
You will learn this advanced exfoliation technique. This physical exfoliation treatment uses a sterilized surgical blade to remove the top layer of the skin which gets rid of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
This treatment promotes wound healing and collagen production while improving acne scarring, stretch marks, wrinkles, and pigmentation. Using the Health Canada Approved InnoPen, you will watch a live demo by an instructor and perform one practical treatment on a client.
