Dermalogica Skin Care Experts in Canterbury
Facial Peels at Blakes Canterbury Beauty Salon
If you find the idea of a chemical skin peel rather daunting, be assured that they are totally safe and will benefit your skin’s health and appearance.
A peel involves applying acid to the skin’s surface which will lower its pH, resulting in the exfoliation of dead skin cells and the stimulation of new cell growth. The process causes the top layers of dead skin cells to peel off, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion beneath.
Our Dermalogica Pro Power Peel collection sets a new standard in facial peel experiences with truly transformative results. The range includes range of peel products, including Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs) which allow us to create a customised peel to refresh and rejuvenate your skin.
Anti-Ageing Facials For Younger Looking, Clearer Skin
As we age, our skin naturally becomes less elastic and allowing fine lines and wrinkles to appear. Nourish and restore your skin with one of our innovative Dermalogica Proskin facial treatments.
Based on the very latest skin care research and technology, the treatments can be totally customised to address your personal skin care concerns. We will assess your skin at an initial consultation suing face mapping skin analysis, after which we’ll come up with a treatment plan. Proskin treatments combine professional exfoliation and deep serum treatment with professional grade active ingredients. The results are immediate and long lasting. Find out more here.
Microdermabrasion for Glowing Skin
Take years off your complexion with a microdermabrasion treatment at our Canterbury salon. This skin resurfacing treatment can be used to solve a wide range of skin concerns. The treatment involves using specialist equipment to propel miniature grains across the skin’s surface and remove layers of dead skin cells.
This reveals fresh, newer cells underneath which results in younger looking skin that is softer, tighter, brighter and smoother.
Microdermabrasion visibly improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, open pores and stretch marks. It is also a suitable treatment for acne-prone skin, helping with blackheads and acne scars.
You’ll see the difference after just one treatment but your Blakes skin therapist may recommend a course of treatments for more problematic skin. With regular treatments, the skin increases its collagen and elastin formation, giving you a naturally firmer and rejuvenated appearance.
Get Blemish Free Skin With Dermaplaning
Recommended by dermatologists, dermaplaning involves one of our fully-trained skin care experts using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the dead skin cells from the surface of your face. It’s a very effective method of removing downy hair, or “peach fuzz” and by removing dead cells, it will allow your skincare products to work better.
Over time, dead skin cells and fine hairs build up on your face, which can leave your skin looking dull and flaky. A build up of dead skin cells can also clog your pores and hair follicles, leading to pimples, spots and breakouts. So to maintain a healthy glow it’s super important to have a regular exfoliation treatment such as dermaplaning – plus your makeup will go on more smoothly without all the tiny hairs on your face in the way!

Do I Need To Wear Sunscreen In The Autumn and Winter?
Yes, you should wear a high SPF sunscreen to protect your skin throughout the year. Even on dull days the sun is still there and you are at risk of UV exposure which can result in fine lines and sagging skin. Your computer screen also emits UV light which you should protect your skin from. Find out more here.
Can I Use Dermalogica Professional Skin Products at Home?
Yes, we can recommend an at-home skin care regime using the advanced Dermalogica range of products. At your appointment we will discuss your needs and recommend products to suit your individual concerns. Products are available to purchase at our Canterbury salon, or via our online shop here.
