Tell us a little about the spa. At Dermalogica, we believe that proper skincare is a daily necessity, just like brushing your teeth. That’s why we’ve devoted the last 25 years to developing the products, education and services necessary to help you achieve the optimum skin health. We work by customising each individual facial to the clients skin concerns and needs. Healthy skin is beautiful skin, so we will never waste your time with talk about pampering, indulgence and over blown promises – instead you can count on us to deliver real results. Every time.
What facilities to you offer? Upon entering the Dermalogica flagship stores, you will see the reception area where you can have your free face mapping skin analysis or indulge in a Skin Bar™ experience, where you can get to know the products up-close and personal. The retail section holds the full range of products available for purchase for at-home maintenance as well. Dermalogica has up to six rooms for skin and body services, all equipped to enhance your experience, including light therapy to help you relax and enjoy your treatments.
What services do you offer? Dermalogica focuses on skin services for the face and body using the professional Dermalogica range of products.
Tell us a little about your staff. All our skin therapists hold the Dermalogica-certified™ title and are trained on a regular basis with the latest additions in the industry.
Do you offer anything unusual or novel? Face Mapping®, Dermalogica’s unique skin analysis, provides insight into your skin’s past and present, and allows the subsequent recommendation of a targeted home care regime for a healthy skin future. Rather than analysing the skin in general terms, a Dermalogica Professional Skin Therapist uses Face Mapping® to divide the facial landscape into fourteen unique zones. Each zone is thoroughly examined inch-by-inch through touch and sight that provides a deeper look into your skin. The findings are then added to your face mapping sheet. This serves as a customised visual guide, outlining on an actual facial landscape illustration where conditions, including congestion, breakouts, dehydration, and/or hyperpigmentation, are present. The whole process takes no longer than ten to fifteen minutes, is free, and eliminates the guesswork when selecting products for your skin.
What is your most popular treatment? The Age Smart™ treatment (see below).
