I heard about a topical botox, something that you just apply to the skin. How does this work?
Derma Vital does offer a topical wrinkle filler. We use Skeyndor's Corrective treatment. Corrective is a treatment that will relax the muscles in the skin (in a similar way to Botox). The result is an intense smoothing effect on the deepest wrinkles. Wrinkles disappear gradually and naturally after the first few sessions.
We also offer the supporting cosmetics for you to use at home Corrective Instant Wrinkle Filler Cream, Corrective Eye Expression Lines Erase, Corrective Expression Lines Serum and Corroective Instant Lip Countour Filler.

How is men's skin different than women's skin? Do I need something different for my skin than my wife?
An excellent question! Men’s skin is 30% thicker and 20% harder than women's. It has a better ability to stay hydrated and protect itself. Men’s skin also more collagen content! This results in firmer skin that takes longer to wrinkle! (Darn men!) The weak point in men's skin is that once the aging process starts, it develops at a very quick pace. It also produces 75% more oil than women's skin, and this means a higher chance of shiny skin and imperfections.

How does photo-light skin therapy work? What is a photofacial?
A Photofacial is a general term for a skin treatment that uses some kind of light-based technology. Any photofacials will work best with a regular skin care routine. Photo facials have a number of different uses, but are mostly used for boosting collagen or treating various skin conditions such as acne, brown spots, broken capillaries, etc.
The two main types of technology used for photo facials are LED (light-emitting diode) and IPL (intense-pulsed light). They are different, so it's important to understand which photo facial technology is being used. That way you are more likely to get the results you hope to achieve.
An LED photo facial is a very gentle treatment that uses light to boost collagen, which creates plumper, younger-looking skin, or to kill the bacteria that causes acne. LED photo facials are painless, cool and relaxing, and carry no risk of burning. The best results come after a series of photo facial treatments. LED photo facials are a good choice for people who want to boost collagen or treat acne. The collagen-boosting, facial rejuvenation properties of LED photofacial's have been proven with medical research. This is a gentler, more natural, less expensive way to go than plastic surgery!
Then there is IPL photofacial. This is a type of laser treatment. An IPL photo facial can treat a variety of skin conditions such as brown spots, broken capillaries, spider veins, and facial redness. An IPL photo facial delivers a bright blast of light, the heat initiates the natural healing process of your body. An IPL photo facial is the better choice is you have brown spots, broken capillaries or facial redness. The number of IPL photo facials you need will vary depending on the condition you're treating, the results you want, and how your skin responds.
