LASH & BROW SERUM: DOES IT WORK?


LASH & BROW SERUM: 
DOES IT WORK?


Should you now throw away your favorite inky black cosmetic? Will the peptide-packed DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer serum live up to its promise of a mini eye-lift and lush brows?

A clinical study in Europe on the peptide active ingredient showed increased lash length and thickness by up to 66% in just 30 days. Will we get similar results with Filipino subjects?

We put the new peptide-packed DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer serum to the challenge. Thirteen (13) women volunteers working in the same office applied the serum mornings and evenings on the root of their eyelashes. Initial measurement and results were measured every 10 days with a paper ruler with mm markings.





In 10 days, 12 of 13 subjects showed remarkable results. After 30 days, All 13 volunteers got increased length in eyelashes, with 2
getting 83% and 60% improvement.

Now, it is proven that you GET REAL results with the DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer serum.

With very short growth stage of 30 to 45 days for lashes and brows, compared to 2 to 6 years for scalp hair, you need booster nourishment from DERMAX Lash & Brow serum to get the real enhancement that you want.

As with other DERMAX products, the new Lash & Brow Maximizer serum is available only in SkinStation, Blushing Beauty and DERMAX skin clinics.

GET REAL



Grow the lashes and brows you’ve always wanted.



Between something REAL or FAKE, which would you choose?  Real, right? No one wants fake brand shoes or bags.  You wouldn’t photo edit yourself in another country for a fake vacation.  Nor would you pretend to have a fake boyfriend in front of your family and friends.  So why is wearing falsie or putting on a ton of mascara or eyebrow make-up ok?  Maybe because you weren’t blessed with long, curly lashes or finely shaped natural brows.  But if you have the chance to have them, wouldn’t you want to get REAL?



Introducing SkinStation’s latest offering:  the new DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer!  It’s a 2-in-1 serum that promotes healthier, all-natural growth of eyelashes and eyebrows.



The real truth


You know the hard fact is that make-up does have its flaws. It can run or smudge at the most unexpected time. It can also feel heavy and irritate your sensitive skin.  And did you know that your favorite mascara could be the culprit behind the weakening of lashes making them prone to breakage? 

With a shorter growth cycle of 30 to 45 days for eyelashes and brows compared to the 2 to 6 years for scalp hair, lashes and brows don’t have enough time to grow long enough.  That’s why lashes and brows need nourishment booster for longer and healthier growth.


Make it real


The new DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer is not a make-up. It’s a 2-in-1 serum that’s peptide-packed with essential amino acids that revitalizes the growth and health of your eyelashes and eyebrows. 


It has 3 real benefits: 
1. LIFT – Daily application visually gives your eyelash and brow a natural boost


2. GROWTH – Applied twice daily, the peptide ingredient nourishes the roots to increase length and thickness by up to 66% in 30 days


3. REPAIR – The serum coats individual strands to strengthen and repair the hair damaged by mascara use.

Visible improvement can be seen in just 2 weeks.  But of course, the best results come on Day 30 onwards. So if you want REAL results to grow the lashes and brows you really want, get yourself the new DERMAX Lash & Brow Maximizer at  any branch of SkinStation, Blushing Beauty and DERMAX clinics nationwide.  You will be surprised.  For real.

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.
