Institut’ DERMed’s Brightening Peel incorporates two key ingredients to help rejuvenate skin, L-Lactic Acid and Chinese Pearl Powder. The acid gently exfoliates and clarifies the skin without dehydrating your complexion while the powder detoxifies, lightens and brightens discolored skin, promoting the regeneration of new cells.

Wild yams sound like something you would find in a Thanksgiving dish; however the anti-aging product Lumière Riche incorporates this ingredient to help fight the signs of aging. Lumière Riche helps to smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the look of under eye darkness and alleviate the appearance of puffiness. The wild yam extract also helps to minimize the appearance of sagging and improve skin’s moisture retention.

One way to stimulate collagen production and reverse signs of aging is through skin resurfacing technology.  YSGG is a new ablative laser that uses an intermediate wavelength for both traditional full skin ablative resurfacing (Pearl) and fractionated resurfacing (Pearl Fractional).  The Pearl Treatment uses advanced YSGG full skin resurfacing technology to remove the epidermis and stimulate collagen production. The Pearl Fractional treatment, the newest application in laser skin rejuvenation technology, treats a percentage of full thickness skin in a safe, effective manner to improve deeper dermal color imperfections and wrinkles.

Who wouldn’t want to tone, lift and erase those pesky signs of aging in the comfort of your home? Using microcurrent technology, the hand-held NuFACE device allows you to do just that.
