The Little Things
At Bionome Spa we have your best interest at heart and believe in healthy, safe skincare with a conscience, therefore to perform our facials we only use and sell products that are completely safe and 100% BIONOME.
We currently offer four distinct BIONOME facials and peels using Dr. Baumann Skincare because we believe that
Dr. Baumann Cosmetics is committed to the real essentials of beauty care and is the missing piece in the skincare market. Just like Bionome Spa, Dr. Baumann is not concerned with trendy or fashionable products, because we know that this is not and should NOT be the criteria for excellence in skincare. We are looking to providing you with skincare that has an exceptional compatibility with your own skin and effectiveness which will bring your skin's condition to an optimum level within your own genetic makeup.
The products we use for our facials are:
100% free of chemical sunscreens, colourants, preservatives and parabens
100% free of fragrance
100% free of mineral oils and petroleum based ingredients
100% free of oxygen
100% free of animal substances
100% Bionome and compatible with the skin itself!
Professionally performed peels can uncover brighter, more youthful skin. Peels are intended to remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells, giving the face a smoother, more radiant appearance. When used correctly, they can minimize pores and even diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
At Bionome Spa, we use professional strength Glycolic, Lactic and Salicylic Acid peels.
A series of 6 by weekly peels helps to rejuvenate environmentally damaged skin by lightening or removing brown discolouration and the sallow colours that characterize the normal maturation of skin as people enter their 30's and 40's. Skin feels softer, with a radiance and glow more characteristic of younger skin. Monthly maintenance peels are recommended thereafter to maintain the acheieved results.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE TREATMENT
A deep cleansing is first performed to remove excess oil and any make-up. An appropiate 30%, 40% or 60% acid solution is then applied and left on the skin which causes a light stinging sensation. The acid is neutralized at 5-10 minute exposure and removed from the client's skin. A hydrating and toning mask is applied at the end of the treatment allowing the skin to calm down and reap the benefits of extra hydration.
Clients are slightly pink by the end of the peel and may return to work immediately. For most, the pinkness fades by that same evening or next day at the latest. Occasionally there may be some light scaling for a few days.
If you are undergoing Laser Photo-rejuvenation, having a peel done about a week before the treatment will allow the laser to penetrate better and improve the Photo-facial results by approximately 15%. So booking a peel prior to your Laser treatment is highly recommended.
