Sadly summer is coming to end, but fall is just around the corner! It’s time to shed that dead skin from the summer and reveal a fresh, smooth complexion for the autumn season.
What better way to do that than with GLYCOLIC ACID! Let us tell you a little bit about glycolic acid, its benefits, and what we have to offer here at Gia Marina.
What is glycolic acid?
Glycolic acid is an AHA (alpha hydroxy acid) derived from cane sugar. Glycolic acid is an exfoliator. It safely removes the outer layer of dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, bringing fresh new skin to the surface. Using glycolic acid:

Gia Marina is now offering Dermablade! We receive many questions about what Dermablading is and how it will effect the regrowth of the hair, so we are here to answer all your questions about Dermablading today!
What is Dermablading? Dermablading is a procedure that gently removes fine vellous facial hair (peach fuzz) using a sterile surgical blade. Dermablading exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin, resulting in a more refined, smooth, glowing appearance. Products also penetrate the skin better following a Dermablade treatment.
Does the hair grow back thicker? Hair returns softly and does not become coarser because of this treatment. The hair removed with a Dermablade treatment is the fine vellous hair (peach fuzz) found on a woman’s cheeks, jaw, and neck. It differs from terminal hair which is the course hair on the legs, underarms, and brows. When vellous hair is cut, the structure of the hair is not damaged, therefore it does not grow back any thicker.
How often should I receive this treatment? The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days and since Dermablading removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells, it is best to wait 3-4 weeks between treatments.
Can I combine a Dermablade with other treatments? Absolutely! A chemical peel or facial following a Dermablade is an excellent way to ensure that the products penetrates the skin deeper and more evenly.
Are there any other benefits to receiving a Dermablade treatment?
Regular Dermablade treatments can potentially:
