Active Resurface 35

Today, more than ever, the desire to reverse the signs of ageing and achieve luminous skin has found its way to the top of the priority list. However, our modern lifestyle has prevented us from investing enough time in professional skin treatments that deliver these results.

Introducing Active Resurface 35; an advanced 45-minute resurfacing treatment that utilises a cocktail of the most advanced cosmeceutical ingredients available in today’s innovative skin care arena.

“With the myriad of environmental aggressors we face every day such as air and water pollutants, UV damage and exposure to thousands of chemicals, the need for regular skin treatments, in combination with a customised at-home care regime is absolutely critical for optimum skin health.” – Dr Diana Howard, Vice President of Research and Development, Dermalogica

As the professional skin therapist’s choice worldwide, Dermalogica has an unrivalled reputation within the skin care industry and continues to be an innovative leader – not only with its formulations, but within the professional treatment room.

Skin care professionals recognise exfoliation as one of the most effective treatments for addressing major skin care concerns. With maturity, our skin’s natural desquamation process slows, causing a build-up of dead corneocytes at the skin’s surface. This decrease in cell turnover is also accompanied by a slowdown in the cell renewal rate.

The Active Resurface 35 is a professional skin treatment completely customised to the needs of your individual skin, providing intense resurfacing to stimulate cell renewal and cell turnover while helping to treat the following skin concerns:

• Premature ageing/sun damage/fine lines
• Pigmentation/uneven skin tone
• Dehydration
• Congestion
• Dryness/flakiness

The hero formulation within the Active Resurface 35 treatment is Exfoliant Accelerator 35. This AHA-BHA concentrate contains the highly active skin-smoothing ingredients of lactic acid and salicylic acid, along with a complex of proteolytic enzymes and peptides to boost exfoliation and result in ultra-smooth skin. In combination with Dermalogica’s professional exfoliation options (described overleaf), significant results are visible after one treatment experience.

how it works

In line with Dermalogica’s ‘no cookie cutter’ approach to professional skin treatments, Active Resurface 35 can be tailored to focus on your specific skin care concerns as well as customised to a level that suits your skin type and skin health. By utilising Dermalogica’s unique Face Mapping® skin analysis technique along with a thorough professional consultation, all aspects of the treatment may be modified to target each individual client’s skin concerns. A unique benefit of the Active Resurface 35 treatment is the lack of inflammation, tissue damage and peeling generally associated with intense resurfacing treatments. As a result, an interval of only one week is all that is necessary between appointments when partaking in a six-course treatment plan.
the treatment

Treatment time: 45-minutes
Treatment plan: Results are visible after just one Active Resurface 35 treatment experience, however a course of six treatments with an interval of one week at a time is recommended for maximum results

There are three different options of exfoliation which can be further personalised: Power Active Option, that accelerates to the Intensive Active Option and then reaches to the Ultimate Active Option – the height of professional exfoliation. In each option the therapist will combine the prescriptive treatment using Exfoliant Accelerator 35 with other Dermalogica exfoliating products to achieve a truly synergistic effect.

The results lie within the synergy of cosmeceutical ingredients.

“Dermalogica does not rely upon one form of ‘active’ ingredient, but rather a synergy of ‘actives’ to achieve maximum results utilising a combination of cosmeceutical botanicals, alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA’s) and beta hydroxyl acids (BHA’s) – always with skin health as a priority.” – Sally Penford, Education Manager UK
