YOU NEED MORE THAN JUST SUN PROTECTION


UV sun protection is no longer enough. If you want to prevent signs of aging or reduce the appearance of those tell-tale signs and prevent inflammation & skin cancer, well then, here’s the perfect multi-protection product just for you―DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream.



What does DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream do?

It helps protect your skin against: aging from UVA rays, sunburn from UVB rays, hyperpigmentation from visible light (VIS), inflammation from pollution (PM 2.5) and oxidative stress (IRA). Plus it is also enhanced with skin lightening boosters to fight uneven skin tone.

Sun care and skin care


Beyond a smattering of freckles and the odd burn each summer, it’s easy to ignore the effects of the sun on our skin. And with the very real possibility of all kinds of havoc all year long caused by the sun’s rays, daily application of a sun shield, whether you’re inside or outside, is very critical.

What role does this product play in anti-aging?


There is a distinct difference between UVA and UVB rays. As general rule of thumb, the A in UVA stands for “aging” and the B in UVB stands for “burning.” While window glass effectively blocks UVB rays, UVA rays, which can cause premature signs of aging, still get through. UVA rays are emitted at the same level all day long, while UVB rays are peaks at mid-day. This means that whether you're sitting at a desk by a window, are in a window seat on a plane, or are in a car, your skin is likely being exposed to damaging UV rays.

How can this product give me indoor protection?


We all know we should apply sunscreen when outdoors but what if you work inside all day? Is sun shield still necessary? The answer is yes. Indoor sources of potentially harmful UV exposure include fluorescent bulbs, halogen lamps, and even tablet and computer screens. These have the potential to harm your skin, causing skin damage and early signs of aging. Long-term daily exposure to these gadgets may even trigger skin conditions, such as melasma. Too much UV exposure also causes almost all types of skin cancer.

Can pollution harm my skin too?


We hate to be the bearers of bad news, but pollution is actually the second biggest cause of facial skin aging―second only to the sun. Prolonged or repetitive exposure to both indoor and outdoor pollution harms the skin in myriad ways: it can lead to a decrease in collagen levels and trigger inflammation. Those fine particulate matter called PM 2.5 can adhere to your skin, aside from travelling into your eyes, nose, throat and lungs.

Why is IR (infrared) protection important?


IRA rays penetrate skin more deeply than either UVA or UVB rays, passing through the epidermis and dermis into the subcutaneous layer. These rays are responsible for the warmth you feel on your skin when you’re out in the sun, but they also generate free radicals that cause collagen breakdown and accelerate skin aging. The heat produced by infrared rays can also lead to inflammation in the skin, which over time plays a role in premature signs of aging.



Finding the best sunscreen is essential. Burning ain’t cool, neither are weird tan lines. So here’s DERMAX 360 Full Shield Fluid Cream that gives you the complete protection from any serious damage, the best defense against sunburn, premature photo-aging and skin cancer.

HYDRAFACIAL: A WORLDWIDE PHENOMENON

It is estimated that hydrafacial is performed every 15 seconds globally, or around 2 million treatments a year. The Philippines is catching up fast with a mega following inspite of the stiff price of P5,000 to P10,000 per session. And that’s because it is more than just a facial. Now, SkinStation introduces its own version with advanced DERMAX Hf ProFacial device and signature blends of cleansers, exfoliant and serum.

 

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Central to the procedure is an innovative device that does gentle cleansing, exfoliating, and extraction, followed by ultrasound, RF, and iontophoresis. The finale is serum infusion using customized blend to address specific skin care concerns. Serum infusion can be customized to target hyperpigmentation, sun damage and acne marks. The appearance of enlarged pores, blackheads and comedones can also be minimized. Long term use helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles with Advanced Peptide Anti-Wrinkle Serum.

 

WHAT IS THE STEP-BY-STEP PROCEDURE? 

The 60 to 90-minute procedure starts with deep cleansing, followed by hydration and exfoliation to refresh the skin; third step is to gently extract blackheads, sebum and debris especially in the oily T-zone. Then there are the ultrasound and RF devices to help contour, firm, and tighten skin; mask is applied next with iontophoresis and the last step is serum infusion with customized intensive skin boosters to help with specific skin concerns and needs.  

 

WHO IS IT GOOD FOR?

While DERMAX Hf ProFacial appeals to all ages, concerns and complexions, it is ideal for those who are afraid of painful pricking and injectables but want to see real and fast results.  

 

WHAT TO EXPECT? WHAT IS TREATMENT INTERVAL?

It’s more than just a facial and there is nothing painful or uncomfortable about the process. The procedure can be done every 2 weeks for the first 3 sessions, then monthly for maintenance. Expect consistent results to give you that extra glow.

THE BAMBOO WATER ADVANTAGE



Now, the spotlight is on bamboo water―which can be the answer to your skin problems. It’s a new natural ingredient with amazing effects on your skin!

 IT’LL GIVE YOU YOUNGER-LOOKING SKIN

Bamboo extract is a rich source of silica―which is great for promoting healthy skin and helps rejuvenate tired skin. Take Bamboo Water Foaming Facial Cleanser! This cleanser is equipped with a brush that gently massages the skin as it thoroughly cleans residue, removes excess oil, and gets rid of makeup in seconds. It also gently exfoliates and clarifies skin with an added whitening effect. Now, clean & glowing healthy skin is just around the corner!


IT’S GREAT FOR HYDRATION

If there’s one thing we all tend to suffer from, its lack of hydration, and bamboo water is naturally hydrating. That’s why we recommend for you to use Bamboo Water Micellar Toner. This product helps regenerate the skin after cleansing. It also helps even out your skin tone and texture. It contains tiny molecules called “micelles” that attract oil, dirt and grime and draw these out the skin, leaving clean and revitalized skin behind. 


IT’S BEST AT MOISTURIZING YOUR SKIN

Turn your bathing routine into a soothing ritual that sets the tone for the rest of your day (or night). We took the liberty to create a shower gel that not only gets the day’s grime, sweat and dust off your body but also hydrates and moisturizes your skin—Bamboo Water & Jeju Aloe Shower Gel. It is also an invigorating and revitalizing shower gel that contains mint beads that provide cooling.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR PORES (ALMOST) DISAPPEAR

If acne and wrinkles are the scene-stealers of all our skin issues, pores are the supporting characters. Large pores are lingering reminders of our oily skin condition during our teen years. Unfortunately, they also won’t give us the smooth, perfect skin of our dreams.

 

We’re going to give it to you straight. You can never get rid of those connect-the-dots game on your face completely. However, you can make them seem smaller or less visible with the right products and skincare routine.  

 

Here’s a product that can blur and minimize the appearance of those tiny little dirt traps right on the spot: Blushing Beauty No More Pores refining serum (P1,700/50mL). This lightweight, oil-absorbing serum formula gently minimizes pores, whitens skin and refines skin texture. Upon application, an evident cooling and tightening effect can be felt. Once the serum dries, you get instant exfoliation with salicylic acid doing its work cleaning up the inside of your pores.

Blushing Beauty No More Pores (P1,700/50mL)

 

Another step in your quest to improve the appearance of your pores is to try SkinStation’s Diamond Peel (P600). This procedure treats mild acne, oily skin to moderate sun damage and even refines your skin color and texture. Additionally, this can be done every 2 weeks.

 

After that much-needed exfoliation, then comes the collagen-boosting phase: Carbon Laser (starts at P8,000). This non-invasive treatment is all about radiant and youthful-looking skin. Apart from increasing your collagen production, it can also help shrink the size of your pores and reverse the signs of aging. This procedure can be done once a month.  

 

 

Now we can talk you through a permanent, skin-smoothing solution: Fractional Laser Resurfacing (starts at P10,000). This doctor’s procedure can make your pores less noticeable and help improve your complexion. This can be done every month. 

 

A lower-priced alternative to Fractional Laser is Collagenesis (starts at P5,000). This doctor’s procedure is what some of you may know as microneedling; this doesn’t only help you fight back against aging but it also work wonders in minimizing the size of your pores and acne scars. This can also be done every 2 to 3 weeks.

 

Pores? We’ve all got them! We all need them. And we’ve got the best bunch of products and procedures to make them look good on you.
