What is Microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion is a fast and efficient approach to skin resurfacing [removal of the top layer of old and dead skin]. It stimulates the production of new skin cells and natural collagen. Microdermabrasion is non-surgical and does not require the use of anesthetics. It is gentle and safe for all types of skin.


How does Microdermabrasion work?

Microdermabrasion works by applying microscopic mineral crystals to your skin. This gently exfoliates the outer keratin layer of the skin, leading to improved tone and texture.


What can I expect from Microdermabrasion?

By removing old skin cells and stimulating the production of natural collagen, microdermabrasion enhances the appearance of your skin. Your skin will feel and look smoother and brighter -you will love it!


How long does a Microdermabrasion treatment take?

A typical session takes 30 – 45 minutes. Although you will see results after just one treatment, we recommend that you have at least six treatments (one every two weeks) for long-term results. To ensure continued great skin appearance, monthly maintenance sessions are recommended.


Are there any side effects?

It is rare but there is a small chance that you could have mild and temporary redness or swelling of the treated area.


Will Microdermabrasion work on me?

Yes! It works on all types of skin, and will visibly reduce the appearance of brown spots, sun-damage, and dull and uneven skin tone and texture.


Are there any precautions I should take before the treatment?

There generally are no precautions necessary. However, if you have used Accutane (acne drug) in the past 6 months you should not to have microdermabrasion, as this increases the risk of skin injury and scarring.


Can I go back to work after the treatment?

Yes, you can return to work immediately following the treatment. Some people even have their session done over lunch! As mentioned, there is a small chance you may have some redness afterwards.


What about after treatment skin care?

I wear lash extensions, can I use this product?

Yes. Because the product is applied to the skin and not the lashes it will not interfere with the bond of the glue. Make sure to wait 48 hours after your refill or full-set of eyelash extensions before reapplying EyEnvy® to allow the glue to adhere/dry well. Many lash technicians recognize the benefits of adding a hydrating serum to your eyelashes. This will help with the strength, quantity and length of your natural eyelashes. In general, this helps prolong the wear of the extensions, providing you follow the care instructions of your eyelashes, as instructed by your technician. The finished results of the lash application are dependant of what the technician has to work with from the natural eyelashes. Your technician can successfully increase more lash placement by working with a combination of denser, longer and thicker lashes. We do recommend applying the product every other day while you are wearing individual eyelash extensions.

Why is it better to put on EyEnvy® in the morning?

It is directed to apply EyEnvy® in the morning instead of at night because studies have shown that when products near the eyes are applied at night, we have an increased chance of sensitivity due to various factors. Namely, when used in the morning, the eye’s lacrimal glands are more active and sensitivity is reduced leading to a healthier experience with EyEnvy®. Because we are unaware of the sensitivity levels of all clients, we have created a general rule for everyone to use EyEnvy® in the morning, once a day.

I have/had cancer/treatments, can I use EyEnvy®?

It is recommended to begin using EyEnvy® 6 months after the last chemotherapy treatment. It will not have any interference, but rather because the effects of chemotherapy which kills cells in the body will not allow EyEnvy® to take its fullest effect. Thus, using EyEnvy® 6 months after treatment allows more accurate and stable results. Lastly, due to heightened sensitivity from chemotherapy, you should start use under the instructions for sensitive eyes, which would be to apply EyEnvy® as instructed every other day.
