Dermalogica: The Treatments of Choice at Academy Salon

Whatever your complexion concern – from signs of ageing to blemish-prone skin – regular beauty therapy using natural products can work wonders when it comes to giving you a smooth and revitalised glow.

Here at Academy Salons, Dermalogica products and treatments are our first choice when it comes to caring for our customers’ skin. That’s why we have partnered with them to provide facial treatments that suit a range of skin types.

 

Who are Dermalogica?

Formed in 1986, Dermalogica was the brainchild of Jane Warwund, an experienced skin therapist who wanted to create a brand that focussed on naturally healthy skin. Jane and her team were passionate about creating products that are kind to your complexion, and to this day they continue to avoid comedogenic (pore-blocking) ingredients, and work to ensure all their products are completely free from known irritants, such as artificial fragrances and alcohol.

With a focus on natural beauty and pure, gentle products, Dermalogica is now the number one choice of skincare, health and beauty professionals, and is used by over 100,000 therapists worldwide.

The Benefits of Facials

Even if your skin doesn’t present regular issues, a facial can still be incredibly beneficial for your overall skin health and well-being. Here are just some of the additional benefits to having regular facial treatment:

  • An expert opinion – Beauty therapists are trained to help you identify your skin type and your unique needs. Going for a professional facial means enjoying a treatment tailored exactly to your skin, rather than the one-size-fits-all approach that comes with at-home products.
  • Soften, even, and glow – Whether you have blemishes, scars, marks, or lines, regular facials can work towards smoothing out your skin and restoring its natural glow.
  • Stay youthful – Regular beauty therapies are also excellent preventatives, even if you’re not showing signs of ageing or blemishes. Facials stimulate the skin, aiding circulation and cell regeneration. They also boost the production of collagen, helping skin stay bouncy and youthful.
  • Cleanse and detoxify – Thoroughly cleansing your skin at home can be difficult without irritating it or causing damage. A skin therapist will know exactly how to cleanse and detoxify your skin while also keeping it safe. Regular detoxing will keep your skin clear and fresh, preventing the buildup of dead skin and blemish-causing bacteria.
  • Peace of mind – Skin treatments aren’t just good for your face; research has shown that facials help to reduce stress, relieve tension, and stimulate the sympathetic nervous system – decreasing anxiety and negative thought patterns.
