Dermalogica Product FAQ

HOW SOON WILL I START SEEING RESULTS FROM USING DERMALOGICA PRODUCTS?


Some people see results the first time they use the products, and everyone tell us that their skin feels different straight away. The skin feels, clean, smooth, hydrated and reflects a new level of health that's visibly noticeable. If the skin has more advanced long-term needs, such as treatment of skin ageing, acne or hyperpigmentation caused by hormonal fluctuatuions or sun damage, results may not be immediately visible; however, skin health will continue to improve as you follow advice of your professional skin therapist, your face mapping and your home care regimen.




WHAT ARE THE LONG-TERM BENEFITS OF USING DERAMLOGICA PRODUCTS?


Plain and simple - healthy skin. Dermalogica uses ingredients designed to help keep skin at an optimal level of fitness - not just cover up with cosmetic results. But don't get us wrong: a benefit of healthy skin is skin that looks its best! In addition, when skin is at an optimal level of fitness, your professional skin therapist can more effectively address issues that may arise from time to time, as your skin's needs are constntly changing.




WHY DO I NEED A PROFESSIONAL SKIN THERAPIST?


For the same reason doctor and dentist check-ups are necessary: for better health! Skin is a living part of your body, that defends against environmental assaults and extreme tempretures. it helps eliminate toxins from the body. It heals cuts, abrasions and scratches like a champ. Its continually renewing and protecting. Simply put, skin keeps the bad stuff out and the good stuff in. Your best looking skin starts with healthy skin, and healthy skin starts with a Dermalogica professional skin therapist.
