Beauty beyond Skin Deep
We treat many patients with various health and allergy concerns. Conversations often lead to questions about cosmetics, lotions, and eye creams. When we added our permanent makeup department we saw an increase in patients asking for advice about skin care options. In an effort to offer more comprehensive services and educated answers to common questions, we began to research safe skin care options that we could feel comfortable recommending as a medical practice.
Our research lead us to a Dermalogica. Dermalogica is the number one choice of skin care professionals and consumers worldwide. It started in 1986, has been researched and tested in over 80 countries, receiving 324 awards to date. Our Cosmetic team has received hands-on instruction from a highly-trained Dermalogica educators paired with helpful tools to create an experience that delivers incredible results.
What we Like:
Health over Beauty
If the skin is healthy it will be beautiful naturally. Dermalogica does not cut corners in order to address “beauty” concerns but focuses on the health of the skin, making their products more effective in offering sustainable solutions and lasting change for your personal needs. In order to improve skin health, Dermalogica products are free of common irritants and ingredients that could cause breakouts or reactions (including lanolin, SD alcohol, mineral oil, artificial colors and fragrances).
Dermalogica products are only available from qualified skin care professionals trained at The International Dermal Institute. Our devotion to medical training and responsible patient care drew us to Dermalogica so we are proud to say that our cosmetic team has completed all required training through the International Dermal Institute. Our team is enthusiastic about the wealth of information they have acquired and continue to pursue through thorough training and continued education.
80% of skin health is achieved at home so WCEA and Dermalogica are dedicated to educating clients about the effects and importance of ingredients in the products they use. Helping you truly understand your skin will set you up for a lifetime of skin health. We are passionate about helping you find skin care products that will best treat your conditions based on your skin type. We will also offer you personalized regimens in order to create healthy habits for long term results.
Before we started offering Dermalogica to our patients we offered samples to our staff in order to get first-hand feedback regarding these products and services. We offered Face Mapping, facials and samples to any staff members who wanted to try Dermalogica. The response was overwhelmingly positive and results were obvious. Our clients have had the same positive experiences and continue to see significant results as they use the personalized skin care regimen offered during their free consultation.
With the support of our WCEA team we are now proud to offer Dermalogica to our patients and the community!
