Dermalogica : : Why We Love Them

Posted by on Jun 25, 2015 in Uncategorized

Many of our clients depend on our estheticians for anti-aging treatments and advice. We’re pretty passionate about helping to reduce the signs of aging as well as help to reverse existing bothersome surface skin appearances like wrinkles, age spots and dry, flaky skin. The reason why we love Dermalogica is because we’ve tried it, used it and experienced the pleasant affects it ensues.

The Age Smart collection is trusted for its swift working natural ingredients, so users can rest assured that what they’re spreading upon their delicate skin is safe.

The Dermologica Age Smart trio.

The Dermalogica Age Smart trio.

The Overnight Retinol Repair, and it’s traits are pretty amazing. With innovative ingredients, this cream-applied along with a buffer cream- ensures desirable results.

The “Powerful treatment cream accelerates skin renewal and reduces the appearance of skin aging overnight. Active microencapsulated pure Retinol helps increase collagen production and cell turnover. Powerful peptides and antioxidant Vitamin C help fight signs of aging including uneven skin tone and discoloration. Formulated with a clinically-proven bioenergized Copper amino acid complex shown to reduce visible wrinkles and improve skin firmness. Includes a moisturizing Buffer Cream to help skin acclimate to this highly-active form of Retinol. Formulated without artificial fragrances, colors or parabens.”

The importance of the buffer cream is that it slightly dilutes the power of the O.R.R., Let us explain:

Some of the ingredients that make these products so effective have been known to thin the epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) which can lead to other problems like ultra-sensitivity and well, delicate thinned skin on your lovely face. This is a common side effect of many effective treatments, not secluded to Dermalogica. But because this new O.R.R. cream is SO competent; what they’ve done is wonderful! Create this amazing buffer cream that helps the working product absorb deep into the skin, the underneath cells that really need the work too, and thus distributes the ingredients to provide a more adequate treatment. Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean that all the skin is then thinned, it actually makes it so that the product can do its work more efficiently, distributing it evenly, which makes it less potent in the ways we don’t want it and activates it precisely where it’s needed.


Our highly educated estheticians are very passionate about their work and are always here to explain in person just exactly what all this means as part of a specialized facial and/or consultation. Even if you want to stop in and try out the product, we’re here to help you figure out what’s best for your skin.

Have a wonderful hair day Portland, oh and take care of that gorgeous skin!
