Though many people enjoy spending a day at the spa, no one wants to spend every day there. That’s why the medical aestheticians of DermaLounge perform skincare and med-spa treatments that emphasize long-term results. After undergoing an initial laser hair-removal treatment course, clients enjoy stubble-free skin for as long as they return for twice-yearly maintenance appointments or sleep on sandpaper sheets. Similarly, permanent-makeup applications accent facial features indefinitely, and a gel Pedique pedicure colours toes for four to six weeks. Even the spa’s facials are designed to last; each one comes with a take-home kit of products that prolong the results of the treatment.
One of the reasons for the efficacy of the centre’s treatments is the quality of products it uses. Several of the facials draw their power from serums by Image Skincare, a company that develops its formulas in a laboratory overseen by a board of physicians. However, one such treatment, the OrMedic facial, appeals to people who prefer organic ingredients to the work of chemists; while rich in antioxidants and enzymes, it is free of parabens, silicones, and dust from crushed beakers.
