DermVisage Wellness Radiance Mask!

wellnessradiancemask
Face masks are fun and they should be part of your beauty routine!
Face masks are fun to use and a great way to pamper yourself to a regular spa treatment at home. My favorite thing about applying a good face mask is that nourishing and refreshing feeling after a single use! The right face mask can help to rehydrate skin, exfoliate, remove excess oils & dead skin cells, cleanse pores, and to tighten pores and give the skin a brighter appearance. Every balanced skin care regimen for men and women should include weekly-use of masks that deliver a significant benefit and here’s why;
Clean-up pores with effective ingredients
Clearing masks that contain bentonite clay and glycolic acid help to purify skin, remove excess oil, exfoliate, cleanse pores, and clears blackheads. Regular face masks will also help to prevent further breakouts of blemishes. Some facial masks with anti-inflammatory ingredients will soothe and calm skin and will help to maintain a clearer complexion.
Get a glowing skin
Mint Masks are becoming popular beauty treatments, especially the ones with refreshing mint in the formulation can help stimulate blood circulation. The process of the mask drying on your skin and beginning to harden, along with the removal of the mask causes an expansion in the blood vessels of your skin. This ensures an overall improvement in skin tone. You’ll be left with softer-feeling and smoother-looking skin, and you’ll also notice a radiant glow and a more refreshed appearance.

Better performance for your regular skin care
The weekly facial mask will help all of your other skin care products to work more efficiently. If you want your moisturizer and facial serum to be absorbed by your skin quickly and deeply, then a face mask will provide a big benefit.
Nourish your face effectively and quickly

Hydrating face masks are a perfect way of rejuvenating your skin and giving it a natural glow. Every skin type can use a hydrating face mask, and it can be done once a week, or even once a month. By applying a hydration mask on your face and leaving it on for 15 minutes, your skin will benefit in many different ways. Your skin will love it! One of the most important benefits of a hydration mask is that it can help to reduce blemishes and breakouts.
Comfort for irritated or sunburned skin
Soothing masks with ingredients like Aloe Barbadensis Leaf or Chamomile will immediately help to comfort irritated skin while reducing redness, calming burning sensations, and strengthening the skin against environmental damage. See http://dermvisage.com/product/wellness-soothing-mask/
Final note: Apply the mask, relax, feel the tingle, breathe in the aroma and wait for your skin’s transformation!

5 Tips And Tricks To Manage Oily Skin!

Image Oily Skin
Everyone knows oily skin needs extra care. Oily skin is thicker and often produces much oil. Dead skin cells on the surface can block the pores. Not only can oily skin affect teenagers, but also it can affect people of other age groups and cause pimples or blemishes. Learning how to care for oily skin requires time and patience. This article will give you some tips that will help with managing oily skin.

1. Twice is nice
This is one of the most important steps in your daily routine. Cleansing, toning and moisturising are three essential steps to clean oily skin regardless of your skin type. Many people who have oily skin feel they do not need any moisturiser but that is a beauty blunder.

2. Be gentle with your skin
Use a water-soluble cleanser to gently clean without stimulating oil glands, increasing redness, or creating dryness or irritation and you will experience how nice your skin feels.

3. Exfoliate regularly
Along with dead cells, exfoliating removes dirt and oil inside your pores. By cleaning through exfoliation, the pores will diminish in size. Depending on your skin type, plan to exfoliate between one to two times a week.

4. Face TLC
Your skin deserves some extra Tender Loving Care. Facial masks are a great way to nourish and refresh the skin and have proven to clarify, improve skin tone, and reduce blemishes or pimples. After cleansing choose a deep pore cleaning mask to complement your skincare routine.

5. Change to water-based moisturizer
Use a water-based moisturizer or facial serum. Serums can also help most skin conditions and can be used by all skin types, including oily skin. Although designed to work with your everyday moisturizer, during summer time you may get away with only using a serum to hydrate the skin.

5 Beauty Tips To Relieve Hot Flashes

Portrait of beautiful healthy caucasian woman applying moisturizing cream on her face. Middle Aged

Many women suffer from hot flashes during menopause. The sudden drop of estrogen level causes the centre in the brain that is responsible for homeostasis and regulation of body temperature to suddenly lose control and need to adjust.

Symptoms for Hot Flashes

During a hot flash, you may experience:

—          A sudden feeling of warmth spreading through your upper body and face

—          A flushed appearance with red, blotchy skin

—          Rapid heartbeat

—          Perspiration, mostly on your upper body

—          Feeling chilled as the hot flash subsides

Here are 5 beauty tips to relieve hot flashes

  1. Get fresh. Have an ice-cold beverage, dampen your face with a wet washcloth, use a small folding fan, and/or take a cool shower.
  2. Watch what you eat. Tea, coffee, alcohol, spicy food and hearty meals all contribute to hot flashes. It is best to avoid them or not succumb to temptation too often.
  3. Ideal for hot heads are Mists sprays. Mineral Mist are packed with essential minerals and are formulated to provide an instant, cooling relief and soothe the skin.
  4. Exercise daily to maintain a healthy weight. Yoga and low-impact physical activities, such as walking, swimming, dancing, bicycling are all                                                                        good choices.
  5. Get a gentle at-home Peel twice a week to remove dead skin cells, brighten, and allow products to more easily penetrate the skin. For mature skin with redness and pigmentation problems use a Moisturizer formulated for skin that has lost its natural balance and requires focused care.

Hot flashes vary in frequency — you may have a few or many in a day — and each hot flash usually subsides in a few minutes.  They’re particularly common at night.  Most women who experience hot flashes have them for more than a year, but they usually stop on their own within four to five years.

Another beauty tip – Stay cool.  Keep your bedroom cool at night.  Use fans during the day.  Wear light layers of clothes with natural fibers such as cotton.

Shanny Gets Skin Analysis, Anti Aging Products at Yorkville Salon

On Friday Jan 15th 2016, Ursula from Dermvisage was invited to do skin analysis and product demonstrations inside Donna Dolphy hair salon in Yorkville, which is a top hair salon in the premier fashion quarter of Toronto. This is where all the luxury clothing, beauty and even skin care companies have their flagship stores in Canada.

Ursula Eshragi at Donna Dolphy Yorkville Salon

Ursula was excited to meet Donna and her team, and a little anxious. But she relaxed when she found Donna was very nice and welcoming and greeted her with a big smile.

Donna’s Yorkville Salon at 88 Scollard St is really spacious and well suited to a Loreal Professional of her caliber and reputation. She has five chairs and three hair washing stations and a loft area upstairs for other cosmetic services. It was a cold and cloudy January morning outside, but inside the salon it was warm and inviting, and well lit with natural light coming in at the front and on top.

Donna Dolphy, Yorkville Hair Salon

Originally the photo shoot was planned for the loft area, but upon meeting Ursula, Donna invited her to set up in the very front of the salon just behind her chair. This was a lovely spot with sunlight coming in the windows and reflecting off Donna’s many awards and glowing a rack of apple green bottle hair products.

On a giant leather couch in the shade of a Loreal poster on the window, and just a few feet behind Donna’s chair, Ursula Eshragi from Dermvisage prepared herself and her equipment for comprehensive skin analysis of staff and customers.

Shannon Tebb, also known as Shanny in the City is a Toronto matchmaker and style coach. She’s a thirty something blond haired woman who appeared, right on time, a few minutes later ready to have the proffered makeover experience. You can read about her make over on Shanny’s blog.

This is the Before shot of Shannon that was taken a few minutes before she went into the hair wash station.

Donna’s personal work area is the front center of the salon . The staff arriving for work in the morning check in with her before checking their scheduled appointment at the desk. This morning they found a skin analysis machine and Ursula Eshragi in Donna’s waiting area.

Shannon was first scheduled for a haircut from legendary Canadian hairstylist Donna Dolphy, who started her service with a series of simple questions in order to better understand what exactly Shannon was looking for in her new hairstyle. Donna and Shannon discussed in detail what she wanted to have done, but she also inquired about how much time Shannon spends on her hair at home, and how easy or hard it would be to maintain this new look.  It was interesting to watch and listen to their banter and realize that Donna is a consummate professional who seeks to deliver maximum satisfaction.

Todd receives skin analysisWhile Donna worked on Shannon, Ursula busied herself with Donna’s staff. She was especially popular with Todd, another top Toronto hair stylist who works with Donna and who was very curious about his own skin which he complained often felt dry.

Todd is a red headed man who had a bit of ginger scruff and very faint freckles barely visible under his skin

deep skin analysis with Todd in YorkvilleUrsula first established a personalized profile regarding Todd’s skincare routine.  She learned about the condition of his skin, and how he feels about his own skin, and the products he’s currently using. Todd explained that he had surgery and his skin is feeling very dry.

Ursula started the analysis using the Triple Sense Sensor for measuring Todd’s skin moisture, oiliness, and elasticity level. His hydration and sebum level was well under 30 % – very low – we recommend a level above 30% for a healthy skin. Why? Because our skin relies on oil to keep moisture and without it our skin will appear rough, flaky, and wrinkled.

Dry skin can also lead to a damaged barrier function which results in increased sensitivity and inflamed skin. Human skin has a solid barrier that shields the cells, keeping allergens and irritating substances away from the deeper skin layer. External elements such as: climate, pollution or unprotected sun exposure, and internal elements such as medication, hormonal changes, special skin conditions like rosacea or eczema, have an impact on the way our skin looks and feels.

The third step in the session with Todd was the computerized deep skin analysis

Todd skin analysis at Yorkville salonImage Pro I skin imaging system quickly analyzes skin health. The system combines the best of photography and skin analysis to provide valuable information about the condition of the skin in its deeper levels.  Ursula used this tool to take a series of photographs of the face and then microscopically examine key areas of the skin highlighting any issues or potential areas of concern.

Based on Todd’s score for each of the key areas examined by the tool, Ursula was able to identify which areas of his skin needed most attention. Here is the results she obtained;  Medium sun damage 34%, appearance of fine line wrinkles 37%, skin roughness 46%.

Ursula recommended that Todd include two sessions of cleansing and moisturizing in his daily skin care routine. To get Todd started,  she gave him free samples of DermVisage New Age Serum and Super Smoothing Cream to him.

Ursula did all this with Todd while Shanny was getting her hair cut and styled in the big chair, and when she was ready, she made the loveliest model Ursula had ever worked with, such pretty hair. And Shannon has fabulous skin.

Shannon Tebb at Donna Dolphy Yorkville Salon

Shannon’s skin type testing was optimal. Her hydration and oil levels were both above 30%. Her elasticity was 98%.  These are amazing results!

Here’s the video where Ursula explains the results to Shannon,

Shanny at the ImagePro1Shannon’s Image Pro computerized skin analysis also showed very low sun damage: less when 29.5%. Skin roughness: 29%.

Ursula recommended Shannon exfoliate her skin once a week which will help her skin glow and additionally the scrub will increase the effectiveness of other skin care products that she may be using.

Her make-up will look flawless if she uses an exfoliator as a precursor.

Ursula’s tips for Shannon: Continue to use the present skin care products, apply a moisturizer twice daily, and protect her wonderful skin with a sun protection lotion.

Skin Analysis At Mint Laser Clinic Toronto

On Tuesday November 17th 2015, our CEO and Founder Ursula Eshragi traveled to historic Liberty Village in Toronto to help spread the word about DermVisage.

Utsula Eshragi in Liberty Village

She brought all the equipment and products she would need to do skin analysis before giving an anti aging products presentation with volunteers at a local laser skin care company.

mint1

Mint Laser Hair Removal Clinic in Toronto offers its clients a variety of different treatments including hydra facials and anti blemish treatments. Tanja the assistant manager was waiting for us in the lobby when we arrived.

Tanja is young and curious and already very well trained in the operation of all the laser clinic’s equipment.  As her passion is advanced skin care, we found her to be quite approachable and eager to see our equipment and products and hear our pitch.  Furthermore, Tanja was willing to ‘put some skin in the game’ pardon the pun, by being part of the live demonstration as the test subject for DermVisage’s skin analysis machine, the results of which would later be the focus of our educational presentation.

UrsulaEshragi-MINT1

The first step in our session with Tanja was to establish a personalized profile detailing her everyday skin care routine, the condition of her skin and the products she is currently using at home.  Tanja explained that she has ‘combination skin’, and that her skin feels often too tight, and too dry on the surface, especially around her cheeks in the afternoon.

DermVisageSkinTest1

Tech Insights of the Triplesense

Using the Triplesense machine we were able to evaluate Tanja’s skin using three parameters: its moisture, sebum, and elasticity.  Since elasticity is a key indicator of aging skin, this tool is ideal for anti-aging treatments.  The LCD screen displays numerical results for sebum, moisture and elasticity as well as overall skin condition type. (Normal, Oily, Dry, or Oily-Dry).
High, Medium and Low readings are also displayed based on the users age. The measurement data can be transferred to a computer via the optional USB cradle.  Knowing the moisture and oil levels of our skin, and determining what we can do to achieve an optimum balance will help with keep skin healthy.  An optimum moisture and oil balance will also result in a youthful glow to skin.

As you can see for yourself in the video below, we used the Triple Sense machine to measure Tanja’s skin moisture, oiliness, and elasticity level.  In this healthy young woman’s skin, everything was as it should be; she will retain her youthful appearance for many years to come.  Her hydration and sebum level was above 50% which is very good.  Most women have a result below 30%.  Our skin relies on oil to hold moisture, and without this natural oil our skin tissue can appear rough and flaky and small wrinkles become more pronounced.  Dry skin can also lead to a damaged barrier function which results in increased sensitivity and inflammation.  Human skin has a solid barrier that shields the cells, keeping allergens and irritating substances from penetrating deeper tissue. External elements such as: climate, pollution or unprotected sun exposure, and internal elements such as: hormonal changes, special skin conditions like rosacea or eczema, all have an impact on the way our skin looks and feels.

This video details the science and technology of a real skin analysis happening at Mint Laser Clinic.

But DermVisage had more analysis to share as we presented even more state of the art technology and breakthroughs in the science of advanced skin care at Mint Laser Clinic in Liberty Village.

MINT-DermVisage1

After some explanations Tanja was prepped for a computerized deep skin analysis using the Image Pro 1.

DermVisage-MINT-Ursla1

The powerful analysis of the Image Pro 1 was demonstrated at Mint.

The Image Pro I is perhaps the most complex skin imaging system available to consumers at this time. The system’s high resolution optics take multiple images of the full face and underlying layers of the skin simultaneously.  The camera not only captures the skin in nearly microscopic detail, it also reveals skin damage that cannot be seen with the naked eye.   With Image Pro I Skin Analysis Software we have the ability to analyze age spots, wrinkles, skin roughness, excess oil, bacteria and sun damage.

In short, Image Pro I skin imaging system quickly analyzes skin health. The system combines the best of photography and skin analysis software into an easy-to-use tool for the modern aesthetic professional.  We used this tool to take a series of photographs of Tanja’s face, and then microscopically examined key areas of her skin, highlighting any issues or potential areas of concern in clear detail.
Ursula-DermVisage-treament1
The scan process takes a few minutes, after which we examine the images it creates to identify any problems and recommend possible solutions.
Treatment-Dermvisage1MINT
The tool takes into account other factors, such as Tanja’s age and lifestyle and gives her a numerical score for each of the key factors relating to the appearance and condition of her skin.
DermVisage-skin-analysis1
Tanja’s results: Low sun damage 34%, appearance of fine lines wrinkles 24%, skin roughness 32% excellent result, clogged pores (her pores were clogged). We recommend the use of a deep facial cleanser and facial clearing mask once or twice a week. For lighter skin complexion and a better elasticity we gave Tanja a free sample of our Red Tea 4 in 1 Serum.

Hydra facial treatment removes dead skin cells

One treatment at the Mint Laser Clinic caught my attention; The Hydra facial.  This treatment removes dead skin cells and extracts impurities while simultaneously bathing the new skin with cleansing, hydrating and moisturizing serums. The treatment is soothing, refreshing, non-irritating and immediately effective.  Hydration is the foundation of healthy and radiant skin.  The Hydra Sensor offered by DermVisage is the perfect match for measuring skin hydration level prior to the Hydra Facial Treatment.

2DermVisage-at-Mint-16Nov2015b

After demonstrating our skin analysis technology, we spent a few minutes presenting our DermVisage skin care line of scientifically formulated anti aging skin care products and of course we gave some samples to the Mint Team for their own testing and personal research.

5 Skincare Tips For Women Over 50


Our goal is to simply look good for our age and to be content in our skin.
Every woman aged 50 and over should know the five skincare tips mentioned in this article. All of us know that beauty comes from within, but I think we also like to look and feel good no matter what our age.

Tip 1: Make Sure You Have the Right Skin Care Products
It’s very important to choose cleansers, moisturizers and a skin care routine formulated for your skin type and condition.
Why is knowing your skin type and skin condition important?
Skin type is the description of how and why your skin looks, feels, and behaves the way it does. Human skin comes in all tones and textures. Because of these differences, it is important to understand and care correctly for your changing skin. Using anti-aging cleansers and toners that match your skin’s needs and adhering to proper skin care regimen protects your skin from the environment and enhances its health. DermVisage uses a variety of image analysis tools to characterize deep skin condition. We measure skin moisture and oiliness with sensitive tools. Based on this information, a beauty experts could recommend natural skin care products and regimen that replenish your skin’s nutrients and enhance its condition.

Tip 2: Make exfoliating part of your weekly skin care routine
Peeling dead cells off also speeds up the skin renewal process. Rejuvenate your skin!
This process turns your complexion from dull and dry to bright and smooth.

Tip 3: Protect your natural shield
Don’t rinse your facial skin with hot water. This only strips your skin of oils. Instead, use lukewarm water or skip the water and cleanse your skin with a cream cleanser.

Tip 4: Relax and treat yourself
Facial peelings and masks are a great way to nourish and refresh mature skin and are proven to clarify and improve skin tone, reduce the look of wrinkles, and provide a healthier and youthful looking skin. After cleansing and exfoliating, choose one of DermVisage Facial Masks to complement your skincare routine.

Tip 5: Use a Anti Aging Peptide Cream
Collagen is an important protein in our skin. Collagen gives our skin its thickness and suppleness. When collagen breaks down in the skin (due to age and environmental factors such as the sun and stress), wrinkles form. Peptides applied topically to the skin can send a signal to collagen to prompt the formation of new collagen, and elastin, which help us to have the appearance of more youthful looking skin.
