The Power of Peptides

Smoothing Peptides: Powerful antioxidants work synergistically to stimulate collagen synthesis and prevent loss of elasticity over time. Contains water-soluble DNA to form a thin protective layer acting as a second skin to fight against premature aging.


DERMOVIA Lace Your Face Compression Mask - a compression facial treatment mask that firms, lifts, repair and hydrates your skin. The only professional facial treatment that features LaceTex technology to radically repair and renew the skin.

Infused with clinical-grade ingredients that treat various skin conditions for long-lasting benefits. Uses gauze compression technology - a high-performance stretch lace fabric delivery treatment system infused with powerful skincare properties for immediate results.

How and why it works?
Key Ingredients (All Natural):
  • Multi-Peptides (Restructures) - Peptides tighten connective tissues to lessen fine lines and wrinkles. Stimulate cellular activity by building collagen, stimulating cellular renewal and cellular turnover.
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract (Refines) - Tea Leaf is antioxidant by nature and has also been shown to be the most effective agent against skin inflammation and contain antibacterial, anticancer and antiviral properties.
  • Vitamin C (Antioxidant) - Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is an antioxidant vitamin that helps create younger, firmer skin while fading signs of sun damage and blemishes.
  • Apple Stem Cell (Renews) - Apple Stem Cells reside in the basal layer of the epidermis. Their primary function is to replenish the skin as it undergoes wound repair to continuously and quickly renew the epidermis.
  • Algae Extract (Regenerates) - Sea Algae Extract brings nutrition, proteins and new life to aging skin cells. It promotes collagen growth, improves elastin structure and also acts as a powerful antioxidant to protect against ultraviolet radiation.
These masks are trending, and I see them all over social media! Not only are they different, but they give real results!

Pro Tip: 

Introduce to your clients during a treatment!
For a cooling mask, refrigerate for 10 minutes prior to application for a refreshing facial anytime.

For a warm mask, submerge ouch in hot water for 1 minute. Unfold the mask carefully and test temperature on wrist prior to application.

Your clients will be hooked. Makes a phenomenal retail item for use in between services or as a gift!

New Treatment Idea: Post-Weightloss Facials

 Anti-aging treatments are the backbone of the beauty industry, however, an increasing number of your clientele are looking for firming treatments that have little to do with age.

Our country has seen obesity turn into an epidemic over the past few decades but with mass media encouraging weightloss, we are also seeing significant numbers of people who are losing dramatic amounts of weight.

Someone close to me has lost 80 pounds over 1 year's time and, while her body is looking fabulous, the skin from her decollete and up has suffered.  Due to the breakdown of elastin, the protein that provides elasticity to the skin, deep wrinkles have developed.

Now is the time to start offering weight-loss makeover services for your clients who have experienced weight fluctuation and are in need of an esthetician's assistance.

Most anti-aging treatments focus on treating fine lines by promoting collagen production.  You clients who have gone through tremendous weightloss will need slightly more comprehensive treatments so as to help rebuild the elastin in their skin.  An investment-type product to consider, which has excellent reviews with Pure Spa clients, is the Miracle Biowave Microcurrent Unit / Non-Surgical Face Lift by Meishida.    This is a microcurrent unit that helps to stimulate and increase elastin production by up to 48%!

If you would prefer to use topical treatments instead, some excellent firming and elastin producing products include:

  1. Grape Seed Oil - This product contains 75% linoleic acid to help restore the skin's elasticity.
  2. Yeast - According to Katherine Tomasso, the YON-KA Paris Director of Education, yeast contains cytokines and growth factors that stimulate elastin synthesis and protect skin from the detrimental effects of ozone exposure.
  3. Egg White Powder - An excellent source for firming and toning the skin. Can be added to muds, masks and hydrotherapy.

Have you seen an increase in clientele who have recently lost weight?  Have they requested any specific services?
