What Is a Dermaplaning Session Like?

If you would like to improve dull skin, clogged pores, and other imperfections without going through a complicated procedure, you're in luck. You can enhance your skin in a quick, non-invasive manner with dermaplaning. At Refresh Evolution in Pitt Meadows, British Columbia, we can use this fantastic treatment to brighten your skin and give you a vibrant, healthy-looking complexion. Read on to learn more about how this treatment can improve your look.

What Is a Dermaplaning Session Like?

If you've had uncomfortable cosmetic treatments in the past, you may feel nervous as you prepare for your dermaplaning session. Fortunately, there's no need to feel frightened about this treatment. Unlike many other cosmetic treatments, this skincare technique uses an easy, comfortable process. You will not receive injections, incisions, or anesthesia during your appointment. You should feel relaxed and at ease as you begin to receive this treatment.

Exfoliating Your Skin

This is a non-invasive treatment that we perform on an out-patient basis. This treatment improves the texture of your skin through exfoliation. Exfoliation is a term used to describe the removal of dead skin cells from the surface of your skin.

A Gentle Process

During your appointment, we will use a sterile blade to remove vellus hair, commonly known as peach fuzz, from the surface of your skin. We will also remove dead skin cells during this time. Since we move the blade in a very gentle manner, you should not feel any discomfort during this process.

A Quick Treatment

Although your treatment session will be unique, this is usually a quick process that shouldn't be difficult to fit into your busy calendar. For instance, you might be able to receive this treatment during your lunch break.

Why Do I Have Skin Issues?

There are a variety of reasons why you may not be happy with the condition of your skin. In particular, you may have dull skin, clogged pores, enlarged pores, or fine lines and wrinkles. Further, you may have fine hairs on your face that make you feel unhappy about how you look.

Dull Skin

One of the most common causes of dull skin is a lack of exfoliation. Your body produces a large number of dead skin cells every day. Some of these cells will flake off naturally, while others will remain on the surface of your skin. If you don't exfoliate your skin regularly, these dead skin cells may build up. These accumulated cells can make your skin look dull and grey.

Clogged Pores

Your pores are small openings that allow your skin to remove sweat and oil. When you have lots of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, your pores are more likely to become clogged. In addition to excessive cells on the surface of your skin, sweat, toxins, and other irritants can clog your pores. Once your pores are clogged, you will become more likely to develop acne, blackheads, and other skin issues. Further, your skin may look dull and less attractive.

Enlarged Pores

Although enlarged pores generally do not cause health issues, you may not like the way that they look. Your pores may appear to be enlarged if you have excessive oil, dirt, and other debris on your skin. When these items collect in your pores, they can make them stretch. This process can make your pores look larger and more noticeable.

Fine Lines

You can develop fine lines on your skin for a variety of reasons. In particular, as you make repeated facial expressions, your muscles will contract. Although contracting your muscles is normal, over time these movements can cause you to develop fine lines around your eyes, on your forehead, and on other areas of your face. Further, as you get older, your skin will become less firm and elastic. These changes make your skin more likely to crease and fold. Spending too much time in the sun and smoking can also negatively impact your skin.  

Peach Fuzz

It's normal to have fine hairs, also known as peach fuzz, on your face. Although these hairs are usually harmless and normal, they may bother you. For instance, you might not like how these hairs look. Further, these hairs may make it more difficult for you to apply makeup and other products to your face.

What Issues Can This Treatment Address?

This non-invasive treatment can improve a wide variety of different skin issues and imperfections.

Minimizing Your Imperfections

Exfoliating your skin can minimize the appearance of your fine lines. It may also brighten dull skin, improve the condition of enlarged or clogged pores, and remove peach fuzz on your face. You may be pleased with how attractive and vibrant you look after you complete your treatment.

Smoothing Your Skin

Removing your dead skin cells and peach fuzz may make your skin feel smoother and silkier. The improved texture of your skin may allow you to more easily apply and remove your makeup. Further, your face may absorb skincare products more efficiently. Your increased absorption of these products may allow you to achieve better results from your current skincare regime.

What Will My Recovery Period Be Like?

Since this is such an easy treatment, you should have no downtime once your appointment is complete. Further, since we do not introduce any foreign substances into your body, there is no risk that you will experience an allergic reaction to this treatment. Instead, you can immediately resume your job and other activities.  

Aftercare Rules

Although you do not have to interrupt your life during your recovery period, you should follow some simple aftercare instructions. For instance, we may ask you to avoid excessive sun exposure for a few days. To accomplish this goal, you should wear a high-quality sunscreen, a hat, and other protective gear when you go outside. Further, we may ask you to avoid using any exfoliating skincare products while your skin is recovering from your treatment. We can give you more detailed instructions after you complete your treatment session.

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?

There is no set number of treatment sessions that will work for everyone. Since your skin and aesthetic goals are unique, we will develop a customized treatment plan for you. That said, you are likely to see beneficial results very quickly. In fact, you will probably achieve your desired outcome after you receive one treatment.

Maintaining Your Improvements

It's important to realize that this skincare treatment does not provide permanent results. Your imperfections may return if you do not have sufficient maintenance treatments. Fortunately, these gentle treatments should be easy to receive on a regular basis. During your initial treatment session, we will analyze your skin and talk about your desired outcome. We can suggest a treatment schedule that can help you maintain your vibrant new look.

Can I Perform This Treatment on Myself?

You might have come across at-home dermaplaning products. Although you might be tempted to save money by performing this treatment on your own, using these products may be dangerous. Since you probably have no training in this technique, you might use your blade too aggressively. You could injure your skin or create lasting scars.

At Refresh Evolution, we have extensive training in performing this treatment. During your appointment, we will use these skills to move the treatment blade gently over your skin. Going to a trained professional will allow you to achieve the best results in a safe, effective manner.

Can I Get This Treatment Before a Big Event?

Smooth, beautiful skin may help you feel more confident and attractive during a wedding, important party, or vacation. Further, achieving a more even complexion can make it easier for you to apply makeup on the day of your special event. As a result, receiving this treatment can be an ideal way to improve your appearance before a significant occasion.

Scheduling Your Appointment

Since this treatment works quickly, you should be able to improve your skin by your big day. That said, you should tell us if you are trying to achieve improvements by a certain day. We can help you plan a treatment program that will allow your skin to recover before your significant event. Further, receiving a series of treatments in the months before your special day may allow you to obtain even more beneficial results from this skincare technique.

Will This Treatment Make My Peach Fuzz Grow Back More Quickly?

You might have heard rumors that using this skincare technique will make the peach fuzz on your face grow back faster. Further, you might have heard from people who claim that this treatment made their facial hair thicker or coarser. This is a myth: treating your peach fuzz will not impact its thickness or rate of growth. Instead, your hair will grow back normally in the weeks that follow your treatment.

What Are the Differences Between This Treatment and a Chemical Peel?

Although both of these treatments exfoliate and improve your skin, they use unique techniques to accomplish this goal. During a chemical peel, we will apply a scientifically formulated solution to your treatment area. This solution will exfoliate your skin and cause outer layers of your skin to flake off. This process will stimulate your body to produce fresher, healthier tissues. This treatment can tighten your skin, improve its texture, reduce acne, and address other skin issues.

Since these treatments can address some of the same issues, you might have difficulty choosing a skincare technique that can help you. Fortunately, you don't need to make this choice on your own. During your initial consultation, we can discuss the benefits of both of these treatments with you. We will help you choose a method that will work for you.

Who Can Benefit From This Skincare Treatment?

This is one of the gentlest, easiest cosmetic treatments. As a result, you are likely to be a suitable candidate for this treatment. That said, there are some skin issues that may prevent you from immediately receiving this treatment.

Please tell us if you have an infection, active acne, or an injury in your treatment area. Although these conditions will not prevent you from receiving this treatment in the future, you should not get this treatment while these issues are ongoing. Waiting for your skin to heal may allow you to achieve more beneficial results from this treatment.

Try It for Yourself

It's easy to fix your dull skin, improve your clogged pores, and minimize the appearance of your fine lines. You can exfoliate your skin and reduce the prominence of your imperfections with dermaplaning.

What Is TriBella treatment?

Many people have wrinkles, sunspots, or other skin imperfections that make them look older and less vibrant than they really are. In the past, people had to accept these changes as a natural part of the aging process. But those days are over. Today, people can rejuvenate and refresh their skin with TriBella: a three-in-one facial treatment offered by the talented professionals at Refresh Evolution in Pitt Meadows, BC. This fantastic facial therapy can give you smooth, youthful-looking skin.

What Is TriBella Treatment?

TriBella is an innovative three-in-one facial therapy that helps people reduce the signs of sun damage and aging. This facial treatment uses a device by Venus Versa to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.

This FDA-approved device has three unique applicators. These applicators work together to make your skin look smoother, more vibrant, and healthier. This facial therapy is easy and non-invasive, allowing people to achieve youthful-looking skin in three treatment sessions.

Why Am I Experiencing Wrinkles and Skin Challenges?

If you're experiencing wrinkles, age spots, and skin issues, don't worry. You're not alone. It's common for people to experience skin challenges, especially as they become older. A variety of factors can cause people's skin to change as they age.

The Aging Process

Many people's skin loses strength and elasticity as they become older. This change occurs partially because of lessened elastin and collagen.

Elastin and collagen are proteins that help your skin remain smooth and strong. As people enter their late twenties and early thirties, their bodies naturally make less of these proteins, making their skin look older.

Sun Damage

Time in the sun can also change a person's skin. This is because repeated exposure to the sun is damaging. The sun sends out harmful ultraviolet light that negatively impacts the skin.

This light can cause people to experience redness and sunburn. As this sun exposure accumulates, it can also cause people to develop dark spots and wrinkles. These damaging effects can make people look much older than they really are.

Other Causes

Age and sun exposure aren't the only causes of skin damage. Lifestyle choices can also negatively impact your skin. In particular, smoking and stress can harm a person's skin.

A New Solution

Skin changes don't have to be permanent. You can reverse the negative effects of sun damage and age with TriBella. In fact, this treatment is specifically designed to help people who are struggling with wrinkles, sun damage, and other skin issues.

How Is This Treatment Different From Other Facial Therapies?

TriBella offers a variety of improvements when compared to typical facial therapies. Many facial treatments can only target a single skin condition at one time. For instance, facial therapy may smooth a person's wrinkles without improving their rosacea or age spots.

This means that people who wish to address a variety of skin challenges may have to schedule many treatments with multiple skincare providers. This process can be exhausting, stressful, and time-consuming.

A Better Way

Fortunately, you don't have to go through dozens of different facial therapies to transform your skin and improve your overall look. That's because this innovative three-in-one facial therapy can target multiple skin issues at once. This makes this treatment a wonderful option for busy people who want to use a quick, effective method to enhance their skin in a variety of different ways.

Who Should Use TriBella?

This innovative new treatment is specifically designed for people who want to erase the aging process and return to the healthy, smooth skin of youth. It can also help with a variety of other skin imperfections and issues.

Look Younger

This facial therapy is a wonderful choice for people who want to look younger and more beautiful. This treatment can reduce many signs of aging, including wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. It may also improve loose skin and stretch marks. This treatment will refresh and smooth your skin, making you look younger, healthier, and more vibrant.

Fix Sun Damage

If you've spent too much time in the sun, you're in luck! You don't have to spend the rest of your life living with the signs of sun damage. This treatment is a great way to address the negative effects that are associated with spending time in the sun. It also can improve dark spots, wrinkles, and other signs of sun damage.

Other Benefits

This facial therapy is also a wonderful option for people who want to address discoloration, scarring, rosacea, and enlarged pores.

Talk to the Experts

The professionals at Refresh Evolution have extensive experience using this innovative treatment to address and improve a variety of skin challenges. During your initial consultation, we will examine your skin and discuss your desired goals and improvements. We will advise you about whether this method is an effective way to achieve your skincare goals.

Is This Treatment Available for Everyone?

Although a wide variety of people can enjoy the positive effects of this treatment, people who have certain skin conditions or other health issues may not be suitable candidates for TriBella.

Achieving a Youthful Look

This three-in-one therapy is a wonderful option for people who wish to reduce the effects of skin damage and aging. This treatment can help people who have uneven complexions and skin textures. It can also reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

People who are experiencing these issues are often thrilled by the improvements in their skin and overall appearance.

Not for Everyone

Although this is a wonderful treatment for many people, it is not designed for everyone. People who have skin conditions that are affected by light or heat may need to consider other treatment options. People who have skin disorders or implants in their skin also may not be suitable candidates for this therapy. Further, this treatment may not be right for people who have very tanned skin.

We Can Help

During your initial consultation, we will examine your skin and discuss your medical history. We will use this information to determine whether this treatment is right for you. If not, we'll recommend other options for you. Whatever the result, you will leave your consultation feeling confident and happy about your treatment options.

How Does the Three-in-One Facial Therapy Work?

This innovative therapy uses a three-in-one system to smooth, refresh, and rejuvenate your skin. This sophisticated, multi-pronged system targets the negative signs of skin damage and aging from multiple angles.

The Venus Versa Device

This facial therapy uses the exclusive Venus Versa device to fight the effects of aging and skin damage. The Venus Versa is an FDA-approved device that uses three applicators to provide you with a complete facial renewal treatment. Each applicator provides a unique treatment. These treatments work together to give you healthy, youthful-looking skin.

The Skin Resurfacing Applicator

The skin resurfacing applicator will smooth and strengthen your skin. This applicator uses a unique technology to combat the decreased production of elastin and collagen that people experience as they get older. During this step, small electrode pins will send energy into your skin. This energy causes your skin to form micro-dermal injuries.

You don't have to feel nervous during this progress. These injuries are tiny, and they will not harm you. Rather, the tiny injuries combat the aging process by encouraging your body to produce more elastin and collagen. The increased production of these proteins will make your skin look younger and stronger.

The Anti-Aging Applicator

The anti-aging applicator uses a heating treatment to further improve your skin. This applicator uses targeted energy to heat the areas underneath the upper levels of your skin. This heat will enhance your blood flow and improve the movement of your collagen and elastin.

This increased movement allows your elastin and collagen to better renew and refresh your skin. This process will improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also firms your skin.

The Photofacial Applicator

The final applicator is specifically designed to even your skin's tone and reduce the effects of sun damage. This applicator applies intense pulse light, or IPL, to your skin.

The IPL addresses sunspots, rosacea, and spider veins. The IPL erases sun damage by effecting the darker pigments in your sunspots. It also attacks the hemoglobin in your spider veins and rosacea. Once these cells are eliminated, your body will make new, younger skin.

What Will My Treatment Be Like?

This three-in-one facial therapy is a safe, non-invasive way to improve your look. You don't have to visit the hospital or endure a complex procedure to receive the benefits of this treatment. Rather, you will have three relaxing treatment sessions.

Before Your Treatment

Preparing for your treatment is easy. You should avoid tanning and self-tanning products for a few days before your treatment session. You also shouldn't use creams or other skincare products that could irritate your skin.

On the day of your session, you should avoid applying any lotions or makeup products to your skin. We will provide more instructions about how to prepare for your session.

Your Session

There's no need to be nervous before your treatment. This three-in-one therapy is easy and non-invasive. You can relax as you receive the three facial treatments from the Venus Versa device. The treatments feel comfortable and warm. You can relax as the three-in-one process works to rejuvenate and refresh your skin.

After Your Session

You should plan on a brief period of downtime after you receive your treatment. Many people need three to five days to recover. This short period will give your skin time to rejuvenate and heal.

Aftercare Rules

You can help your skin achieve optimal results by avoiding certain activities during this recovery time. It is important that you stay out of the sun after receiving your treatment.

You also should avoid massages and cosmetic treatments that affect your skin for several days. Finally, you shouldn't use steam rooms or take hot baths during this time. The professionals at Refresh Evolution can provide more details about how you can protect your skin after your treatment session.

How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need to Achieve Good Results?

Everyone's skin is different. We will develop a treatment plan that is tailored just for you. That said, we always suggest that people book three treatment sessions to get the best results.

You should wait about four to five weeks between each treatment session to give your skin time to process the rejuvenating effects of facial therapy. Once you have entered the maintenance period, you can preserve your smooth, youthful-looking skin with twice-yearly treatment sessions.

Does the Treatment Take a Long Time?

Fortunately, you don't have to schedule a huge block of time to receive your treatment. TriBella is a quick, easy way to improve your skin. Most people schedule three initial treatment sessions. Each of these sessions will usually last for an hour and thirty minutes.

TriBella lasts longer than some facial therapies because you are receiving three different treatments during a single session. This process allows the three treatment modalities to work together to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.

Can I Wear Makeup After I Receive My Treatment?

You'll want to avoid applying makeup for a few days after you receive your treatment. During this time, you should only use skincare products that your treatment provider has approved.

The professionals at Refresh Evolution can advise you about when you can resume using makeup and other skincare products after your treatment. We can also advise you about how to further protect your skin by incorporating sun protection into your skincare and makeup routine.

Is This Treatment Safe?

TriBella is a tested way to achieve a more youthful appearance in a safe, comfortable manner. This treatment has been used by people around the world who wish to smooth and improve their skin.

At Refresh Evolution, we have extensive experience using this treatment method to help people enhance and renew their skin. We can address your questions and concerns during your initial consultation. You'll begin your treatment session feeling relaxed and confident about your decision to receive this fantastic facial therapy.

How Long Will It Take for Me to See Results?

You don't have to wait for years to notice the healing power of this wonderful treatment. You will notice positive changes in your skin as soon as a week after your therapy session.

That said, the full effects usually appear about three months after you have received your final treatment session. This is because it takes your body a little time to transform your skin. Avoiding the sun and following your treatment provider's advice during this time can help your skin heal and allow you to experience the full effect of this treatment.

Are the Results Long-Lasting?

This treatment is a great option for busy people who don't have time to get regular facial therapies. It's also perfect for value-conscious people who want a treatment that will give them enduring results that really make a difference in how they look and feel.

How Long Do Chemical Peels Last? 9 Things to Expect

Take a moment to think about all the concerns you have about the condition of your skin. Is there just one issue, or do you have multiple problems that need to be dealt with? For most of us, having only one skin concern would be a blessing. Is there any way to tackle multiple skin concerns at one time? At Refresh Evolution in Pitt Meadows, BC we know the key to perfect skin is chemical peels, one of the most trusted and reliable cosmetic treatments of all time.

9 Things to Expect About Chemical Peel Results

Chemical peels have a long, lauded history that has withstood the test of time because the results are nothing short of miraculous. Ask any skincare professional and they’ll tell you that the best beauty secrets are usually the most simple. So, what is it about these peels that produces such great results? We’re happy to break it down for you before you call to schedule your initial consultation!

1. Different Peels Have Different Results

How long does a chemical peel last? Frankly, the results of a chemical peel depend on the type of peel used for treatment. Many patients want to know how long they can enjoy results right from the start, so it’s important to understand that how long your results last rely entirely on the exact treatment you have.

Light Peels

Light peels are the most common type of cosmetic chemical peel treatment, but they also have the most variation in terms of results. A light peel generally lasts for about 1 to 2 months at a time when you first start using the treatment. Over time, the results of a light peel can last for about 6 months.

Medium Peels

Medium peels are the second most common type of peel as well as the second most intense peel. The results of a medium peel can last for 2 to 4 months at a time right from the start and can last 6 months or a little more after repeated treatments.

Deep Peels

Deep peels are a more rare peel that is typically used medically rather than cosmetically. The results of a deep peel can last decades at a time, and sometimes even a lifetime. The results of a deep peel are near-permanent because a deep peel is generally only used for serious health concerns.

2. Results Vary Peel to Peel

The results of a chemical peel also vary depending on the type of peel treatment. This is because each type of peel has a different level of intensity, or a different degree to how deeply it penetrates and treats the skin. To understand why the results vary peel to peel, you should also understand what each type of peel does to the skin.

Light Peels

Light peels are the most common type because they are the most generalized peel. Light peels don’t have a particular specialty. Instead, a light peel is helpful in addressing virtually all skin or appearance concerns. Light peels can be used more frequently than other types of peels, and they are also easier to recover from.

A light peel refers to the light intensity of the chemical being used for the peel. It is common to use AHA, lactic acid, or glycolic acid for a light chemical peel. As a lighter peel, these mild intensity chemicals penetrate only the first few layers of skin to exfoliate and treat any issues in the sub-dermal layers. Light peels are used to treat acne, reduce acne scarring, shrink enlarged pores, smooth skin tone and texture, correct sun damage, minimize fine lines, and much more.

Medium Peels

As the second most commonly used chemical peel, medium peels are also used to address multiple skin issues at one time. However, medium peels are also specialized in a way. It is common for medium peels to be used for anti-aging purposes, particularly to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and dark spots. Medium peels can also be used to minimize the appearance of scars, including more severe acne scarring. Medium peels commonly use TCA or refined glycolic acids to exfoliate additional layers of skin and treat the sub-dermal layers.

Deep Peels

Deep peels are not used frequently. In fact, most physicians recommend only using deep peels once in a lifetime. This is because deep chemical peels use high intensity acid to address major health concerns. For example, deep chemical peels are used to removed melanoma cells from the skin and prevent the cancerous cells from returning. Deep peels are also sometimes used for a one-time removal of deep scars or wrinkles.

3. Light Chemical Peels Can Be Frequent

Light peels can and should be used frequently. At our clinic, we recommend patients using light peels have a cluster of several initial treatments to achieve ideal results and then graduate to less frequent additional treatments to maintain results. This is because the results of light peels build on each other over a period of time, gradually improving the appearance and quality of the skin.

Initial Treatments

Most patients require about 4 to 6 light peels, spaced 1 to 2 months apart, to achieve desired results. The time between the peels allows skin cells to renew and turn over, with each subsequent peel exfoliating cells and treating new cells just beneath the skin surface. The number of initial treatments you need will depend on your exact skin concerns.

Maintenance Treatments

After you have reached your desired results, you will need to maintain those results with regularly scheduled maintenance treatments. Most patients schedule these treatments every 6 months, although some patients prefer every 4 months if they have aging skin. We will help you determine the best frequency for your maintenance treatments.

Medium peels can also be used frequently to achieve and maintain results. As a general rule, medium peels will require only 2 to 3 initial treatments, spaced about 2 months apart, to achieve ideal results. Maintaining results of a medium peel can be done using a light peel or a medium peel once every 6 months.

4. Results Depend on Recovery

Regardless of the type of peel intensity of your treatment, the results of your peel will depend on your recovery. Specifically, your results will rely on how you take care of your skin during your recovery period. Although there is no downtime associated with a chemical peel and you are free to return to all normal daily activities, there are some things you should know about your recovery time.

Your Recovery

Your initial recovery will be about 3 to 7 days after your peel, which is when your skin is sensitive and the most vulnerable. To protect your skin, we advise patients to avoid direct sun exposure and to wear SPF 30 or greater. After 7 to 10 days, your new skin cells will have turned over, finished peeling, and will be less vulnerable to sunlight, pollution, or other exposure.

5. Your Results Might Not Include Peeling

Surely every chemical peel will include peeling skin, right? It’s right there in the name! But the truth is that, under certain circumstances, the results of your chemical peel might not include peeling skin. Here are a few reasons why:

Regular Treatments

Regular peels, particularly during your initial cluster of treatments, may mean you won’t have to deal with peeling skin. Why? It’s a simple matter of your surface skin having an appropriate balance of dead skin cells, meaning that the peel doesn’t have much to exfoliate or peel away. But just because you’re not peeling doesn’t mean that the treatment isn’t working. In fact, we consider it an encouraging sign when your skin no longer peels after treatment, as it means that the chemical is compatible with your skin and your needs.

Regular Exfoliation

Patients who exfoliate regularly between peel treatments, either at home or with other cosmetic treatments, may also avoid skin peeling after treatment. This is because, once again, there are fewer dead skin cells that are removed during the peel treatment.

Regular Skin Cells

Patients who don’t experience peeling during their treatment may also simply be blessed with having regular skin cell turn over. While patients with chronically dry or rough skin have an obvious issue shedding dead skin cells, other patients may be able to naturally turn over skin cells without additional help, and that means less peeling after a chemical peel.

6. Good Results Come With Good Skin Care

Good results after a chemical peel also rely on good skincare. As a point of fact, proper skincare habits lead to better skin overall. This is particularly true when you are taking care of the new skin that is revealed by a chemical peel. Here are some tips on how to use good skincare to get good results:


The best cleanser after a chemical peel is one that is gentle, made for sensitive skin, and does not have any harsh chemicals, dyes, or fragrances. This means staying away from cleansers designed for acne-prone skin and opting for oil-based and non-comedogenic products.


Regular moisturizing is also key to helping your new skin acclimate to the surface. Both day and night moisturizers are recommended to maintain the moisture balance of recovering skin.


You can also use facial serums to treat new skin, such as serums made with enriched vitamins or hyaluronic acids.


Wearing daily SPF with a strength of at least 30 or greater is also key to helping new skin recover. This is especially true for patients who are using peels to correct sun damage. Protecting your skin from the sun with SPF is also a way to protect the results of your peel.

Other Home Products

Some patients use other home products, such as sheet masks, to soothe recovering skin. Patients also commonly use Vaseline to protect the skin, particularly from wind and cold weather.

7. You Can Prep Your Skin for Better Results

Some patients find that the best results come from preparing the skin for treatment. There are several ways patients can help make sure they are prepping their skin for the best possible results, including:

Month Before Peel

About a month before your peel it is a good idea to begin a new regular skincare routine. Ideally, you want to select cleansers, moisturizers, and serums that have active ingredients that will complement the acid of your peel. We will work with you to help you find the skincare products that best match the needs of your skin.

Weeks Before Peel

About a week before your peel, we recommend you postpone any cosmetic treatments using lasers or wax. You can schedule treatments such as dermaplaning about 1 to 2 weeks before your treatment. We also encourage you to limit your sun exposure at this time.

Days Before Peel

About 2 to 3 days before your peel, we advise stopping the use of certain skincare products containing active ingredients such as Retinol, AHA, or BHA. We also encourage patients to drink plenty of water to help skin maintain its moisture balance after the peel.

8. Other Treatments Can Enhance Chemical Peel Results

There are other treatments you can use to help enhance the results of your peel as well as your overall appearance goals. We will work with you to help you find any additional cosmetic treatments that will help you achieve your ideal appearance. Some of these treatments may include:


Injectable treatments include dermal fillers to restore facial volume and tighten skin as well as neurotoxins to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and work best about 4 weeks before treatment.

Skin Tightening

Skin tightening treatments include laser treatments and microneedling, although these treatments should be scheduled at least 3 weeks before your chemical peel.


Dermaplaning about 2 weeks before treatment to remove peach fuzz and exfoliate the surface layer of skin can help the chemical peel work better.

9. There Are Countless Beneficial Results

A chemical peel is used to correct any number of skin concerns. Because this treatment is so versatile and customizable, it can:

  • Smooth skin tone and texture
  • Reduce fine lines
  • Correct skin damage
  • Eliminate dark spots
  • Prevent breakouts
  • Boost collagen production
  • Diminish acne scars and enlarged pores
  • Improve rosacea

Are You a Good Candidate?

All patients who are interested in chemical peel treatments will need to attend a consultation, which includes a skin analysis that helps us select the best peel for your skin needs and your appearance goals. Good candidates include patients who prefer simple, non-invasive treatments and who are seeking to correct multiple skin concerns. Most patients who are interested in this treatment are qualified candidates.

At Refresh Evolution in Pitt Meadows, BC we recommend total facial rejuvenation by combining dermaplaning with a chemical peel.

Why Does Our Skin Change?

We'd all like to keep the complexion we had when we were 20, but time marches on. As it does, our skin changes both structurally and aesthetically. These changes go hand in hand. As the structure changes, the way it looks changes almost as quickly. So, what really happens?

The Structure of Young Skin

Young skin has absolutely everything going for it. The building blocks of strong healthy skin are plentiful and doing everything they're supposed to. The three dynamos of beautiful skin are collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. When you see a vibrant, wrinkle-free and dewy complexion, it's a result of having these three in spades.


Collagen is the protein that everything else is built on. It makes up 80% of our skin and keeps all our skin cells packed tightly together. Think of collagen as the very building block of every part of our skin. It's most prevalent in the middle layer of our skin, or dermis. Here, the strong fibers of protein are woven tightly together and act as a framework for everything else to lie on. It keeps a strong hold on the surface of our skin, ensuring it stays tight and doesn't sag.

Skin cells are regenerated on collagen, and when there's plenty of it, our cells come back bright and vibrant, keeping the surface of our skin smooth, clear and even. Every 28 days, our cells are replaced, and collagen keeps them looking their best, which is why young skin doesn't have splotches, rough patches or dullness.

Collagen also keeps everything underneath it in place. The deepest layer of our skin is called the hypodermis, and that's where the layer of fat and fat pads are. These pads give our cheeks their youthful contour, prevent tear troughs from forming under our eyes and gives the apples of our cheeks their youthful roundness. Collagen works hand in hand with elastin.


In our dermis, among the collagen fibers, is another protein called elastin. As you could probably guess by the name, it keeps our skin and other organs flexible and elastic. When we smile, sleep, yawn and pull on our skin, elastin keeps it bouncing back to place. You'll notice young skin doesn't yet have expression lines or areas where the skin looks lax because elastin is plentiful enough to do its job.

Elastin, along with collagen, keeps skin in place as gravity tries to pull it down. That strong foundation won't loosen its grip and keeps skin tightly adhered to underlying tissue and bone structure. Those defined jawlines, facial contours and strong lines result from the great bond between collagen and elastin.

Hyaluronic Acid

There's one more age-defying addition that keeps us looking young, and that's hyaluronic acid. This is a naturally produced sugar our bodies create to hydrate and lubricate our skin. When we're young, there's very little that can make our skin look dry or cracked because hyaluronic acid molecules can hold 1,000 times their weight in water. They actually attract moisture and hang on to it.

Our skin looks dewy and supple, feels soft and silky and our makeup goes on like a dream. Our makeup doesn't settle into any fine lines or wrinkles or sit unattractively on top because it mixes with our natural moisture to blend and look natural.

What Happens?

Around the time we turn 20, our production of all three of these key elements declines by about 1% a year. Because collagen plays the largest role in healthy skin, we notice that impact the most. It's not just time that causes a decrease in this protein, either, but certain lifestyle choices speed up the loss of collagen, causing a faster breakdown. Factors that slow production of collagen include:

  • Smoking
  • Unprotected sun exposure
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Excess sugar or processed food intake
  • Long-term unmanaged stress
  • Not enough sleep
  • Poor hydration
  • Poor skincare routine


Collagen Loss

When we lose collage, everything changes. Where we once had a solid foundation of tightly packed protein, we now have a weakening layer of skin. Collagen fibers are more sparsely spaced out, giving new cell regeneration a smaller platform. This can lead to sun-damaged cells not being replaced with bright and healthy ones, cells regenerating unevenly in both pigment and texture and our pores appearing larger.

The most profound change happens when the dermis starts to have areas of weakness that turn into small crevices. Our top layer of skin falls into those areas, leaving us with the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and folds. Our collagen also loses its grip on the lower layer of our skin and the fat pads there slide downward. Our once youthful contours can flatten and look hollowed out.

Elastin Loss

When collagen slows, so does elastin. Our skin will no longer bounce back the way it used to. Because there isn't a strong foundation holding our surface skin to our facial structure, elastin can't fight the pull of gravity and our skin begins to sag. All those expressions we've made our whole lives leave their road map on our skin because it doesn't snap back anymore. The result is crepe-like skin that shows wrinkles and sags where gravity pulls the most, near the bottom of our face.

Hyaluronic Acid Loss

It becomes much easier for our skin to dry out and show all of our fine lines as hyaluronic acid depletes. Our skin can look dull and makeup just sits on top of our face or settles into fine lines. We don't get the supple “bounce” we used to when we touch our faces. The texture can be rough and dry, even ashen.


As bleak as that may sound, there are innovative solutions that can bring back vitality, life and youthfulness to your complexion: dermaplaning and chemical peels. Before we talk about how dynamic a duo they are together, let's explain each one on its own, first.


If you do a search, you'll see satisfying videos of people having this treatment performed. This treatment involves one of our estheticians using a medical-grade scalpel, held at a 45-degree angle, to gently scrape the top layer of your skin. As long as you're in the hands of one of our professionals, it's wonderful. It's also not a new concept, though the official treatment is modern.

It's been a Hollywood secret for decades that beauties like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor shaved their faces. Why? Because when this is done the right way, it “shaves” the top layer of dead and dull skin cells from the surface of your skin. It also takes with it all the peach fuzz from your face.

The Results

The results are amazing. When you're done with treatment, your face will immediately look brighter and smoother. Your color and texture will be even and your skin will feel like silk. Everything that was just lying on top, forming a dull barrier to your beautiful complexion, is removed.

Even that peach fuzz was not doing you any favors. All those hairs acted like magnets to oil and debris, making it difficult to see the radiance underneath. Makeup sat on top of those hairs rather than penetrate them, so your skin may not have looked as flawless as you would have liked.

We've all heard the myth about peach fuzz growing back darker or thicker after treatment. Without going into the science, just know it's physically impossible for this to happen. Whatever your peach fuzz looked like before treatment is exactly how it will look when it eventually grows back.


There are more benefits than just glowing, smooth skin. Once your complexion is free of that dull barrier, all your facial products can actually do their job. Often our clients, who have been constantly going through products looking for one that works, realize after treatment that it was their skin that was the problem, not the product. The nourishing skincare line you've chosen will get real results after this treatment. You can even ask us for a recommendation for a line that's perfect for your skin type and concerns.

The other benefit is how much better other treatments will work. It's like you've just pulled a mask off your skin, and it is now more receptive than ever to cosmetic treatments you'd like to try. We recommend pairing dermaplaning with chemical peels.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels are treatments that use scientifically formulated solutions applied to the skin to exfoliate the dead and dull cells on top. The beauty of chemical peels is how versatile they are. When we conduct your skin analysis, we can choose the right peel to address your level of concern and get the results you're hoping for.

Our chemical peels don't require downtime, but you will be asked to stay out of the sun for a few weeks because the removal of this layer of skin will make you more susceptible to sun damage.

The Results

As the top layers are exfoliated away, they will peel, revealing a healthier, brighter and revitalized complexion. This process also triggers your body's natural healing response, which is to produce more collagen. We know what a collagen boost can do for the skin. This boost can help:

  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Even out skin tone and texture
  • Reduce pore size
  • Improve the appearance of acne scars
  • Address minor skin laxity
  • Help with hyperpigmentation
  • Brighten a dull complexion

As the dead layer of skin peels away, you'll have smoother and younger-looking skin. Results will continue to improve as more collagen is made and your skin continues to build strength from the inside out.

The Benefits

Once your skin is healed, it's like the clock has been reset. You'll have a younger-looking complexion, your products will work better and makeup will go on more smoothly. Overall, you will look invigorated and more awake.

Combining Dermaplaning With Chemical Peels

This is the one-two punch your dull skin has been craving. Dermaplaning on its own removes a lot of dead skin cells and the dulling layer of peach fuzz. When you have this treatment first, you're giving the chemical peel a better starting point because it doesn't have to work to get through that barrier.

The chemical peel can then go to work on the newly uncovered layer of skin. This will amp up the production of collagen even more, contributing to better immediate and long-term results.

What to Expect

We'll have a consultation with you to do our skin analysis and make our treatment recommendation. Once we've all agreed this is the right combination of treatments for you, we'll begin with dermaplaning.


You will first get comfortable in the treatment chair. Then, one of our estheticians will carefully and expertly maneuver the scalpel over your skin, picking up all the debris along the way. We're happy to show you everything we're removing as we go, and you'll be amazed! When this treatment is over, we'll prep you for your chemical peel.

The level of intensity of peel will determine how long you'll be in treatment. Generally, we'll apply the peel solution, and, after the correct amount of time for your desired results, neutralize and remove it. We'll then apply a soothing and nourishing serum or lotion and some sunscreen. We'll send you with post-treatment instructions to stay out of the sun, but there is no downtime necessary.


Over the next week or two, you may notice your skin will flake and peel off, revealing a brighter and more youthful complexion underneath. Because you've combined treatments, your skin will be super soft, smooth and glowing. Results from dermaplaning can last months, though cells regenerate every 28 days, so clients who experience the best results come in every few months for treatment.

Chemical peel results can last up to six months or longer, depending on the peel you've had. Clients who want to enjoy seamless and progressive results will come in every three months or so for maintenance. We'll work with you to determine the right schedule for you, your skin's condition and the desired results.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Almost everyone is a candidate for dermaplaning except for someone in an active cystic acne breakout. We'll just reschedule for when your skin has calmed down. Because peels are so versatile and can be so mild, they're appropriate for almost everyone too. A consultation will help us decide what course of treatment will get you the kinds of results you want and address your specific areas of concern.

Get the Complexion You Remember

Discover the Rejuvenating Power of Microdermabrasion

Age, genetics, the sun, and our environment can all play a role in the imperfections we see when we look in the mirror. You should always feel good about yourself and how you look and, sometimes, these two things go hand in hand. If you are dealing with signs of aging or other skin imperfections and concerns, call Refresh Evolution in Pitt Meadows, BC to discuss how microdermabrasion could hold the rejuvenating power you’ve been looking for.

What Is Microdermabrasion?

This treatment is getting a lot of press and has seen a surge in popularity as people are documenting their experience on social media: but it’s not as new a concept as you might think.

A History

People have known for centuries about the beatifying results of removing the top layer of dead skin. They just went about it differently before modern technology. If we go back as far as Egypt around 1500BC, we find that physicians would use a type of sandpaper to remove scars and restore skin back to near perfection.

Those treatments would be used on Egyptian royalty to sand out any imperfections and keep the royals looking perfectly polished.


Let’s fast forward to the 1950s, when dermabrasion became widely used. This treatment uses wire brushes to remove the top and deeper layers of skin. There were several problems with this wire brush technique:

  • It was extremely painful and required general anesthesia
  • Exact depths couldn’t be pinpointed, so it required a lot of downtime as multiple layers of skin healed
  • It caused scarring in some cases
  • There was lengthy wound and aftercare involved
  • The risk of infection was high

This process also was without its own contained suction method, so physicians and technicians were exposed to infection from airborne skin particles.


In 1985, two Italian doctors created a “closed-loop” microdermabrasion tool. The skin that was sanded away was sucked back to a container in the machine instead of becoming airborne. By the late 1990s, these machines exploded onto the American cosmetic scene, and their production and improvements have never stopped since.

Modern Microdermabrasion

It may sound complicated, but the treatment today is straightforward, comfortable, and, most importantly, effective. It involves the use of a wand with a head packed with diamond flakes that exfoliate the top layer of your skin. The wand also uses gentle suction to move the sanded skin cells up and away from the freshly unveiled layer of healthy skin.

When this outer layer, known as the stratum corneum, is sanded away, it triggers a response in your body to up its production of collagen. Collagen helps new cells regenerate in deeper layers of your skin known as the basal layer. The immediate result is an overall brightening as the dead skin cells and debris that created a dull layer covering your complexion are removed.

What Can Microdermabrasion Treat?

It’s not just a dull complexion that can benefit from this in-office, non-invasive treatment. When you think about the outermost layer of your skin and all the concerns you have had, know that removing these cells can help address:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age and sunspots
  • Large and clogged pores
  • Uneven tone
  • Uneven texture


Lines and Wrinkles

Stress, natural aging and exposure to the sun are the main culprits in the formation of lines and wrinkles. There have been studies that followed women going into their first microdermabrasion treatment through leaving their sixth treatment; and all reported their lines and wrinkles had become less visible.

As the top layer of your skin is sanded away, your body may produce more collagen, which means the new cells that regenerate will be stronger and less damaged than the ones they’re replacing. If you continue through a series of treatments, your visible skin cells will become healthier, and so will the layers of them underneath the surface. This will work to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.

Uneven Pigmentation and Age Spots

The sun may be your friend for the synthesis of vitamin D and the joy a sunny day can bring, but it is your skin’s enemy. A lifetime in the sun can leave you with an uneven tone and dark spots that riddle your skin. People seek this treatment to reduce the visibility of these changes in pigmentation.

While microdermabrasion alone may not completely remove these spots, it can provide a lightening of them. These results can be amplified by a good quality vitamin C serum or other topical treatment recommended by your skincare specialist.

Enlarged Pores and Blackheads

When you think of what it must look like on a microscopic level to have the top layer of debris removed from your skin, you can imagine pore-clogging elements being suctioned away, leaving them clearer and cleaner. A cleaner pore will shrink because there isn’t a lot of “gunk” in there causing it to expand.

This treatment is a great way to clear out clogged pores, which will further add to a smoother and brighter complexion.

Better Topical Product Absorption

Imagine trying to get your expensive skincare creams and treatments through a tough film of dead cells. How much of it will break through, and what percentage of the rewards will you able to enjoy? Not nearly as much as you’d like. Once you’ve had this treatment, you’ll find your skin responds better to your skincare regimen.

If you constantly product shop looking for something that will get you the results you want, it may not be the product that’s the issue: it could be your skin that’s been preventing absorption. Using a quality skincare line will also extend your results because you’ll be cleansing, nourishing and protecting your newly revealed complexion.

What to Expect

As you’re looking for the right place to receive this treatment, we caution you against making a choice based on price alone. We’ve heard too many horror stories from clients who went to discount websites and got treatment from the cheapest option available. Microdermabrasion will not break the bank no matter where you go, so it’s important to choose a reputable clinic or med spa.

Once you and your skincare specialist have decided this is the right treatment for you, there are a few things you should know before you go.


Because this is a non-invasive treatment, you don’t have to do anything difficult to prepare for your appointment. We suggest keeping to your normal skincare routine intact because the healthier your skin is on the day of your appointment, the better your results will be. The only exception to this rule is that you should pause using heavy-hitter topical treatments like:

  • Retin-A
  • Retinol treatments
  • Abrasive exfoliants

You’ll also want to avoid self-tanning products for a week before your treatment, and especially unexposed time in the sun. Before you get any other treatments, like injectable neuro toxins, waxing or any other facial, let them know when your microdermabrasion appointment is just to be sure the timing will be right.

During Treatment

The best advice for your appointment we can give you is to relax. Patients describe this treatment as relaxing because of the repetitive sensation on their face. Once treatment is over, talk to your skincare specialist about any special topical products they think would help you maintain your results. If you have deeper aesthetic and anti-again concerns, this is a good time to discuss complementary treatments to achieve the full results you want.


The biggest aftercare favor you can do yourself is to stay out of the sun and protect your skin when you’re in it. Your skin will have no dull layer protecting it from those harmful rays. If the sun gets to your skin because you’re not wearing sunscreen, you’re more likely to burn, which means even deeper levels of your skin are exposed to sun damage. Your mom was right when she yelled at you to wear sunscreen every day!


Clients see an immediate brightening because they are seeing themselves without a dull layer of dead skin cells and debris. Often, they describe their skin as “glowing”. If you’re looking for a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, you may need to opt for more sessions. Many clients are happy with the results after just one session, while others may schedule a series of sessions to achieve optimal results.

Complementary Treatments

If you have other issues you’d like addressed, talk to your skincare specialist about matching the right treatment with your area of concern. There are very few skin imperfections that can’t be addressed in a medspa setting.

Chemical Peels

If you’re looking for a perfect treatment to do after microdermabrasion, look no further than a chemical peel. You’ll be starting with a surface that will already absorb more of what any treatment has to offer, so if you pick a versatile treatment like chemical peels, you’ll only enhance your results. Chemical peels can address a laundry list of concerns like:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Acne breakouts
  • Dark spots
  • Sun damage
  • Rosacea
  • Melasma
  • Large pores and blackheads

Chemical peels can be customized to meet each client’s needs ranging from very superficial imperfections to deeper lines and wrinkles. Talk to your skincare provider about which peel will be right for you. Depending on the ingredients used, you can get a light, medium or deep peel to address different levels of concerns.


Injectables have quickly become the most popular requested cosmetic treatment in the world. There’s a reason for their popularity: they’re able to address a variety of concerns and get amazing and often immediate results.

Neuro Toxins

This tops the list as the most commonly performed cosmetic treatment in the world. Neuro toxins are a purified form of the botulinum toxin and is considered a neuromodulator, meaning it can temporarily block a nerve’s signal from reaching a specific muscle and altering how that muscle moves.

Neuro toxins are best known for their ability to reduce or eliminate the appearance of dynamic wrinkles—the wrinkles that are caused by movement. Some wrinkles are caused by a loss of volume, but when you think about your frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles, these are strictly a result of the expressions you’ve repeatedly made over your lifetime.

Talk to your skincare specialist about which lines wrinkles are your biggest areas of concern. When strategically injected into specific muscles, neuro toxins can effectively treat:

  • Frown lines between the eyebrows
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes
  • Bunny lines on the side of the nose


Reducing a Gummy Smile

If you feel you show too much of your gums when you smile or that your top lip disappears when you say “cheese”, neuro toxins can help. Because it works to relax muscles, it can relax the muscles that pull your lip up when you smile just enough to minimize your gums’ exposure.

Neuro toxins can also help with a crooked smile. This is a common asymmetry where one side of a person’s mouth goes up higher than another when they smile. Using neuro toxins can relax the side that ventures farther up, creating an even and symmetrical smile.

Dermal Fillers

If you’re struggling with moderate to severe lines, folds and wrinkles, ask your specialist about the use of dermal fillers to get immediate results. There are a variety of fillers on the market, and only your specialist can determine which would be right to address your specific area of concern.

Deep Lines and Folds

It seems nothing can give away our age quicker than the deep folds around our mouth and wrinkles around our lips and chin. Luckily, fillers can give you immediate and natural results while filling in these troubling areas. This treatment can immediately address:

  • Nasolabial folds from your nose to your mouth
  • Marionette lines from your mouth down your chin
  • Chin wrinkles
  • Vertical lines surrounding your lips that cause lipstick to “bleed”


Lip Enhancement

We’ll let you in on a little secret: those celebrities and models with the perfect lips you envy? Most of them weren’t born that way. They have had a little help filling out their natural shape with dermal fillers. Our lips thin as we age, and this can cause them to appear as two horizontal lines instead of shapely and voluminous. Certain dermal fillers are designed to provide instant and natural plumping when injected into the lips.

You don’t have to worry about looking “over-plumped”, either. These fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar your body naturally produces to attract moisture. The results are soft and pliable while looking full and young. Lipstick and gloss will apply and wear more evenly and smoothly because all those vertical lines will be diminished giving your lips well-defined edges.
