Dermalogica Concept Space

1022 Montana Ave., Santa Monica

“Over 90 percent of the population are confused about their skin,” says Annet King, Director of Global Education at the International Dermal Institute.

If you think you might be among that huge chunk of people, Dermalogica on Montana in Santa Monica might be an excellent place to begin your re-education. A gender-neutral place for all your skin care needs, Dermalogica on Montana offers many unique, personalized and inexpensive services for anyone and everyone.

One of the best options, the MicroZone Treatments, provides an inexpensive yet problem-specific option if you are short on time and/or money. Just 20 minutes, the MicroZone addresses a single skin issue or your choice, such as, an unexpected blemish or extractions.

Like a mini-facial, the MicroZone works great for in-between visits, or for those who just want to dip their toes into the world of skin care. At just $25 a pop, you can’t go wrong.

Dermalogica provides a couple of other great and inexpensive options for the noncommittal, curious or those who might feel lost about their skin care regimen.

The first, the Skin Bar, lets you mosey up to the bar-like counter and try any or their products for free. Even better, a skin therapist can help point you in the right direction toward a product you may need, teach you insider tips on deep cleansing and exfoliating or show you step-by-step how to look after your skin.

To this end, the Face Mapping offers a systematic analysis of the condition of your skin from forehead to chest, which is also a free diagnosis.

As King puts it, “Our main mission is to educate the consumer.”

With an ongoing recession and luxury on the decline, Dermalogica provides a no nonsense way to take care of the health of your skin without the frills, expense and time of a traditional salon.
