Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face; however, it is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, which are made up of “terminal” (not vellus) hairs. The nose is also avoided.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Some practitioners perform a chemical peel post- dermaplaning (I wouldn’t recommend this if you’ve never had either treatment before or have sensitive skin). Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.
A therapy called micro-needling—in which a device delivers tiny needle pricks to stimulate the skin’s natural healing processes—in all skin types and with minimal recovery. The basic idea behind Micro-Needling is to stimulate the production of new collagen. Using the skin’s ability to heal itself, puncturing the dermis with microscopic needles triggers the production of new collagen. Micro-Needling is used to improve skin tone and texture; treating the appearance of aging; scarring; stretch marks and pigmentation marks from acne and sun damage.
Topical products applied directly after Micro-Needling can be absorbed to a far deeper level in the skin, making them more effective.
Facial Microcurrent is a safe, painless, non- surgical, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that helps tone, lift and firm sagging facial muscles back to its original position and shape. One of the popular anti-aging treatments that are now in growing demand in the market is the facial microcurrent treatment. The use of microcurrent therapy in medical treatments started out during the late 1980’s in the United States and was approved as a muscle stimulator. Microcurrent treatment at that time had been used to treat patients with Bell’s Palsy, a facial paralysis, and stroke. This treatment is beneficial for the cure and lifting of uneven and sagging facial muscles. In the early 1990’s, microcurrent facial treatment has been adapted in the cosmetic industry.
Benefits of Facial Microcurrent
1. It helps improves the health and appearance of the skin.
2. It tightens and firms aging skin.
3. It helps tone the muscles on the face and neck.
4. It also helps lift sagging eyebrows and jowls.
5. It helps heal scars and blemishes giving a healthy glow to the skin.
6. It helps reduce and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
7. It stimulates the production of collagen on the skin.
How does Facial Microcurrent work?
Facial Microcurrent uses electric current that recharges the facial tissues. The conductive gel is initially applied on the face; a dual-tipped cotton- probed device is then rubbed on the skin’s surface to stimulate the muscles that needed treatment. Our body’s own current works in harmony with the electric impulses the microcurrent machine remits. The machine used in this procedure sends painless impulses to the facial muscles thus helping the muscles to relax and recover its strength and re-educate the muscles to return to its original position.
Intense Pulse Light Facial
Intense Pulse Light, also known as photofacial, is a non-laser, precision light generator that minimizes skin discolorations associated with accumulated sun damage and age spots on the face, chest or hands. Photofacials also help reduce the look of vascular problems, such as rosacea, while leaving the surface of the skin unharmed.
A photofacial, or “fotofacial,” is a procedure in which intense pulses of light are used to penetrate deep into the skin. IPLTM photorejuvenation then causes collagen and blood vessels below the epidermis to constrict, reducing redness and age lines.
A chemical peel is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which a chemical solution is applied to the skin to remove the top layers. The skin that grows back after a chemical peel is smoother and younger looking.
Chemical peels can be done at different depths — light, medium or deep — depending on your desired results. Each type of chemical peel uses a different chemical solution. Deeper chemical peels produce more-dramatic results, but also involve longer recovery times.
Chemical peels can be done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used to:
• Reduce fine lines under eyes and around the mouth
• Treat wrinkles caused by sun damage and aging
• Improve the appearance of mild scars
• Treat certain types of acne
• Improve the look and feel of skin
• Treat hypergigmentation
ACIDS USED IN PEELS
Alpha hydroxy acids are a group of NATURAL acids found in foods. Alpha hydroxy acids include citric acid (found in citrus fruits), glycolic acid (found in sugar cane), lactic acid (found in sour milk and tomato juice), malic acid (found in apples), tartaric acid (found in grapes), and others. Alpha hydroxy acids work by removing the top layers of dead skin cells. They can also increase the thickness of deeper layers of skin, promoting firmness.
Facial cupping is an excellent non-invasive treatment. It is completely safe to use since it does not involve surgery and long recuperation time, chemicals or any other potentially harmful and painful procedures. Further, it is more economical as against expensive creams and lotions that claim to remove the signs of aging, but may or may not be effective. Facial cupping has been used by many people across Europe, Russia and Asia and is found to be very effective in eliminating wrinkles and lending a smooth, texture to the skin. Facial cupping is done using customized cups that are specifically designed for treatments on the face, neck and upper chest. The reverse suction that is applied works to gently lift the facial tissues. This results in massaging of the tissue because of which blood circulation and the draining of the lymph nodes is stimulated. As a result, the tissues receive a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients; and waste from the cells, and other harmful toxins, and substances are eliminated. Excess fluid is also drained and the facial muscles relax with the movement of the suction cups.
Beauty Benefits of Facial Cupping
The effects brought about by the cupping can have several aesthetic benefits that work on both, dry and oily skin. Here’s how:
• Drainage of fluid in the lymph glands results in reduced edema and puffy appearance.
• Better nutrition brought to the skin helps bring a young glow to the skin. Any beauty products used post-treatment are absorbed better and are more effective.
• The lifting motion reduces the visible fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring because of injuries or acne. The skin also looks plumper. Further, the connecting tissue under facial skin is stimulated so that it heals and reduces smile and laugh lines.
• Massaging movements help relax tense facial muscles resulting in a softer, younger appearance.
Body Sugaring is an ancient art of hair removal using a completely natural paste made from lemon, sugar and water. … an all natural alternative to waxing.The paste is molded onto your skin against the direction of the hair growth, then quickly flicked off in the direction the hair grows- removing the sugar paste, extracting your unwanted hair ( from the root) and collecting dead skin cells. Because the sugar paste seeps into the follicles, it adheres to hair that is not even showing and removes it. The result is less hair growth.
Body Sugaring can be done on any area.
Spider Veins Therapy
Spider veins are very small blood vessels located in the outer layer of skin. The color is either red or blue based upon the capillary anatomy. These vessels are often unsightly in appearance, and sometimes cause discomfort in the skin. Reticular veins are a little larger and are located slightly deeper in the skin. They are blue in color and often are the feeder source to the spider veins. Spider veins (not to be confused with varicose veins) are dilated or stretched blood vessels that have a branching pattern and are commonly found on the thigh, lower leg and face. Spider veins are progressive in nature and usually increase in number and visibility with age. Spider Veins can be caused by heredity, UV ray exposure, hormonal fluctuations and skin trauma. The treatment involves inserting a probe the size of a human hair directly into the broken capillary and applying a minute (very small) amount of current. The broken capillary immediately disappears. Often there is only one treatment required. Although, follow up treatments are sometimes necessary.
Skin Tag Removal
A skin tag is a small (benign) tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) – they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. Skin tags are also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, cutaneous tag, fibroepithelial polyp, fibroma molluscum, fibroma pendulum, soft fibroma, and Templeton skin tags. Skin tags are very common. They affect men and women equally. They are not dangerous and they can be removed for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons. Skin tags occur primarily in areas where the skin forms creases, such as the neck, armpit and groin. They may also occur on the face, usually on the eyelids. Skin tags are thought to occur from skin rubbing up against skin, since they are so often found in skin creases and folds. Skin tags are removed by cauterization: using electrolysis.
Permanent Lash & Brow Tint
Eyelash tinting is a process wherein your eyelashes are dyed to make them look darker. Depending on your skin type and hair color, you can achieve eyelash colors, including black and shades of brown. Eyelash tinting will benefit people that are sensitive to makeup, people who are active in sports, and people who have no time to apply makeup daily. This process is also ideal for people who wear contact lenses because they do not have to suffer through putting on mascara any longer. The process involves a quick and non-surgical procedure using vegetable dye as tint. Compared to putting on mascara, the effect of eyelash tinting is very natural.
Eyelash perming is a process involving a solution placed on the lashes, rolled into the perfect curl, and allowed to dry. After the solution is rinsed away, you are left with beautifully curled lashes. This lasts for about four weeks and requires zero upkeep. Combining the process with lash tinting creates a fully-mascara-ed look that requires no maintenance.
If you’re a girl with barely-there brows, eyebrow tinting can help frame your eyes beautifully. This semi-permanent cosmetic procedure is a very attractive option if you’re tired of using an eye pencil or have noticed a few grays popping up in your brow line. Eyebrow tinting works well most women , and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a way to streamline your beauty routine.
An exciting new product and technique for thicker, longer, and naturally abundant looking eyelashes. Eyelashes are made thicker and longer through professional application of an individual synthetic eyelash directly attached to the natural eyelash with a specially formulated bonding agent.They are designed to allow you to go on with day-to-day activities. Eyelash Extensions are semi-permanent, lasting four to six weeks depending on the life cycle of your own natural lashes and other factors. Though the average cycle of a single lash is about 90 days, factors such as your eyelash characteristics, lifestyle, and general care of your lashes will affect how long your extensions last.
Eyelash Extensions are applied individually and when closely observed, appear to actually have a root. The lashes have a natural looking curve, so there is no need to use an eyelash curler. Eyelash Extensions come in various lengths, colors, and thicknesses to create a beautiful and natural look.

Skin Care for Life
The FDA divides skin-care products into two categories: cosmeceutical and pharmaceutical. FDA requires the ingredients in cosmeceutical products (products sold over the counter) only have to be 70% pure. Pharmaceutical grade products are required to be 99% pure. Pharmaceutical-grade skin care products (products that can only be purchased through a skin-care professional) undergo much more rigorous testing before they can be released. This testing can last for as long as 10 years and cost millions of dollars. These products penetrate the layers of the skin to affect its structure and function. For this reason, pharmaceutical products are held to a much higher standard of purity.
GlyMed Plus is a pioneer and industry leader in the field of pharmaceutical skin care products. These products follow a four-step system to fight the effects of aging, acne, sun damage, pigmentation, Rosacea, and other skin conditions. Our unique four-step system provides the versatility to allow you to be as gentle or aggressive as you’d like to be with your skin care program.
The first step of the GlyMed Plus system removes oil, dead skin cells, and environmental pollutants and debris, which can form dangerous free radicals in the skin.
The treatment phase of the GlyMed system provides your skin with active ingredients proven to treat your specific condition to restore, replenish, and revitalize your skin.
The active ingredients used in GlyMed’s Balance products revive your skin’s ability to repair and renew naturally giving you a healthy, natural glow.
The application of protecting ingredients allows your skin to grow and build healthy cells while being shielded from pollutants, debris, and the sun’s harmful ultraviolet light rays.
Additionally, GlyMed Plus has developed a line of long-lasting, mineral makeups. Unlike traditional makeup, ours protect your skin from UV rays and provide antioxidant-rich nutrients to promote healthy skin. Our makeup has been designed to camouflage skin conditions without irritating or aggravating these conditions, as traditional makeup can.
No One Wants To Live Their Life With Acne

If this sounds like you, let us encourage you that we can help you finally win the fight against your acne, with our GlyMed Plus Acne Facial Series and healing facial products.

DOES ELECTROLYSIS WORK?
Absolutely. Electrolysis is the only method approved by the FDA for permanent removal of unwanted hair. As the hair is treated, regrowth is prevented rather than just removed temporarily. Only electrolysis provides both hair removal and hair elimination.
Electrolysis, a technique used for the destruction of unwanted hair follicles, has been in use since 1875. The treatment is delivered through a single, sterile probe / needle that is gently inserted into the hair follicle. You will not feel the insertion. When the probe reaches the end of the follicle where the hair root meets the dermal papilla (blood source to the hair follicle), a small amount of heat is emitted (which feels like a tingle). This heat dehydrates the bulb and basically cauterizes the junction between the hair root and the papilla; without a blood source the follicle dies.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognizes electrolysis as providing permanent hair removal. The FDA identification in Title 21, CFR, Sec. 878.5350 for needle-type epilators is: “ a device intended to remove the hair by destroying the dermal papilla of a hair”. As no other device for hair removal has the unique identification of “destroying the dermal papilla of a hair”, only electrologists are allowed to claim permanent hair removal in their advertising. No other hair removal devices, including lasers, have been able to achieve this definition.
Electrolysis is the only method proven to remove hair permanently. The number of treatments varies with each person depending on their hormone levels. It is very important to adhere to the recommended treatment schedule to achieve optimum results in the shortest period of time.
Hirsutism, or the growth of excess of androgens (ie: testosterone) vary throughout your life but are more prevalent during puberty, pregnancy and menopause. Medications, obesity and illness may also cause hirsutism and may require physician intervention. Electrolysis is necessary to permanently remove a hair that has been activated; it will not go away on its own.
WILL ELECTROLYSIS WORK FOR ME?
Certainly. Electrolysis is effective for all skin types, hair types, skin colors, hair colors, and areas of the body.
