How much product do I use?!

How much product do I use?!


We get it, when products feel and smell as lovely as our DP Skin Care line, its tempting to slather mass amounts of it over the skin!!

Though, we are here to help guide you to use the appropriate amount for your skin and concern. Overuse of products and ingredients are very common, leading to overstimulation in the skin and running out of your products very, very quickly. Keep in mind, our products are very pure, plant based ingredients as well as professional grade. This means, you don’t need to use too much product, due to a very high concentration of active, potent vitamins and botanicals.

We have put together a simple users guide for all of our products!:

Cleanser/Exfoliating/Benzoyl Peroxide Cleanser: Dime size amount. Wet hands, and work into a foamy lather.

Hydrating Toner: 3-4 sprays onto a cotton round and sweep over skin OR spritz directly on face and sweep off with a cotton round.

Salicylic Toner: 1-2 pumps on a cotton round, sweep over skin.

Moisturizer/Hydrator: Dime size amount.

SPF 30 Gel: Size of a quarter.

Vitamin K Eye Cream: A pea size between two pinkies, apply in a complete circle, on the app lid and under eyes.

Serums: 5-7 drops in the palm of you hand, sweep hand together and spread evenly over skin.

Skin Oil: 3-5 drops, pat over moisturizer.

Bamboo Enzyme Scrub: Dime Size amount. Combine in with your cleanse, or use alone after cleansing for concentrated exfoliation,

Recovery gel mask: Apply a generous amount, the size of a walnut to full face and massage in.

Mineral Clay Mask: Layer an opaque amount -size of an almond- over skin, on top of recovery gel or on it’s own. The layer should be thick enough that you will not be able to see your skin peeking through.

Lavender Milk Mask: Scoop a tablespoon amount into a bowl, add half amount of water. Blend and apply with a mask brush.

Our go-to Skin Care!

Our go-to Skin Care!

The Dermaplus Esthetician’s are here to tell you all about our homecare routines!

You have seen them posted on our Instagram…and now by popular demand, we have put all the routine’s together in one easy to read Blog!


Its Lizzy!👋🏼”What products do you use?”, is one of the most popular questions I get asked by my clients”…so I would love to share my routine as well!🌼
🔆Morning: I wash my face with J. Sabatelli Organic Cleanser, the small beads in it help to smooth out my dry skin. I follow with DP Hydrating Toner to balance my PH and give my skin tons of hydration. In the morning I switch between using DP Calm to soothe redness and Cplex as my antioxidant serum. I complete my routine with DP Moisturizer and SPF if necessary!
💤Evening: I cleanse with J. Sabatelli and follow with DP Salicylic Toner whenever I’m breaking out. I use Alpha Beta X a few times a week for a deeper exfoliation. I end my routine with DP Moisturizer, Vitamin K Eye Cream and sometimes top with DP Skin Oil if I need some extra rich moisture!
🌱I take probiotics daily from our Nurse/Nutrition Consultant Nancy. These tend to help prevent breakouts around my chin!


Elaine here, and I’m here to share a little bit about my home care routine!📝
🔆In the morning: I use the DP Chamomile Cleanser and twice a week I will rotate in the Exfoliating Cleanser. I use DP Vitamin C everyday to lighten my skin and to prevent the hyper-pigmentation from getting darker and follow that with the Hydrator and Vitamin K Eye Cream. When I know I will be outdoors, I apply my final layer of skincare product with our SPF gel 30!
💤In the evening: I cleanse and then I will alternate the DP Salicylic Toner when I am not using Retin A. I have been using .5 Retin A from our Nurse Nancy, to help brighten my skin and fade pigment, I apply this nightly 4x a week. I follow this with Hydrator and Eye Cream. A fun trick I do once a week for extra hydration is use DP recovery Gel mask as an overnight moisturizing mask!
🌱My daily supplements from DP Nutrition are: Digestive enzyme before meals, probiotic and magnesium before bed!
My skin + body has never felt better!


Hi everyone, it’s Andrea!👋🏼 I’m here to talk about what I use for my home care routine🌠
🔅Morning: I splash my face with cold water and follow with the Hydrating Toner to refresh and tone my skin. Next I use DP Vitamin C everyday. I have been using vitamin c since I have been 19 years old & I truly see that it has helped control the pigmentation on my face and kept my skin looking youthful. I top off with Hydrator and Jane Iredale BB Cream.
💤Evening: I cleanse my skin with Exfoliating Chamomile Cleanser and follow with Alpha Beta X. My skin does very well with a lot of exfoliation in the evening. I finish off with DP Moisturizer. A couple nights a week I end my routine by applying Skin Oil paired facial cupping!
🌱Supplements: Prior to my recent trip to Thailand I received a B12 shot from Nurse Nancy to help with jet lag and ward of mosquitoes(it works!) I also incorporated 500 billion probiotics from Dermaplus Nutrition to prevent against food poising, added bonus…my skin looked amazing by then end of the trip!!🏝

Facial Cupping

Facial Cupping

Now at Dermaplus!

cupWe are ALWAYS researching and experimenting with the newest trends in skincare.

Sometimes we find some techniques/modalities that are fun, but don’t necessarily produce results– while other times, we come across phenomenal products that create a visible difference in the skin!

With that being said, and after weeks of testing on our own skin and watching to see results,
we are very excited to be adding
“Facial Cupping” to our service menu!!

What is Facial Cupping?
Facial Cupping is an ancient healing technique in which suction glass/rubber domes are used to detoxify and stimulate facial tissue, resulting in reduced puffiness and sallow skin as well as toning and contouring. By stimulating blood circulation, skin cells are nourished, creating a refreshed, healthy appearance in the skin.
Facial Cupping is non-invasive and utilizes a small, thimble-like, silicone tool that is gently smoothed across the surface of the skin for a deep facial massage.


What can Cupping do for your skin?:

  • Increase oxygen-rich blood circulation
  • Visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Plump lips
  • Reduce puffiness & bags under the eyes
  • Lift, tone and define facial contours and jawline
  • Activate lymphatic system and detoxify
  • Relieve headaches, cold & sinus congestion, tooth pain, TMJ
  • Relax facial tension and tightness
  • Reduce stress and improve mood


To Use:

  1. Gently clean your skin
  2. Apply 3-5 drops of DP Skin Oil
  3. Squeeze cups on both sides, apply to skin and release to create suction.
  4. Use light sweeping and gliding massage strokes from the center of the face towards the otter part of you face.
  5. To prevent cupping marks, keep cup moving at all times
  6. After Cupping massage, apply your DP nighttime routine
  7. Suggested use 2-3 days a week, 2-3 passes on each section
  8. Enjoy glowing, youthful looking skin!

71BjbEO4AZL._SL1500_We also offer a Cupping Kit for the Body as well! Popular amongst those looking to reduce the appearance of cellulite and/or relieve back and body pain.

The Magic Behind Dermaplus

The Magic Behind Dermaplus..

Since 2001, Dermaplus Skin + Body has seen tremendous growth.
This growth has always come organically, through the wonderful referrals of our clients.
Dermaplus has always relied solely on its hard work and effective skincare treatments to result in such positive feedback and testimonials.

Some clients have even gone so far as to write reviews and publish articles about Dermaplus and our team in prestigious magazines such as Allure, 7×7 and SF Magazine as well as popular Blogs like GOOP, Gal Meets Glam, and Daily Candy and many more.

We feel very honored to have grown the business in this manner and are so grateful for each and every public recognition!

Our commitment for continuous growth has manifested rapidly as we hire on more members to our team, expand and add new, innovative services to our menu. It is a pleasure to serve our clients and we feel proud the results can speak for themselves.

In 2014, I became the new owner of Dermaplus. Since then, I have learned many things about what it takes to keep a healthy business thriving.
Most importantly, I have learned what it takes to run a successful business.

It takes a TEAM.

It takes the right people who bring the perfect mixture of chemistry, work ethic, loyalty and passion for helping people. Without these characteristics in each individual, Dermaplus could not be what it has become today. We are committed to providing you the most advanced level of education and a truly personalized experience. We are committed to providing the most advanced level of education and a truly personalized experience for our clients. Our commitment is to ensure our clients feel understood, nurtured and that we deliver the results they seek for their skin!

We take pride in providing results, and are passionate about custom blending our Dermaplus skincare products weekly, so that our clients receive the freshest ingredients available. Incorporating the medical side of skincare is a wonderful and important asset to the business as well. Laser Hair removal,  Laser Genesis and many other Med Aesthetic treatments have helped hundreds of our clients with skin issues, that could not be helped otherwise. I cannot begin to express the feeling we all have when we are able to make a difference in one of our client’s lives.

We are integrating “Holistic Nutrition” into our Service Menu. Our Registered Nurse, Nancy, will be offering consultations on whole body wellness and nutrition beginning in a few months. We believe that having healthy skin isn’t only because of what we put ‘on’ our skin, but also what we put ‘inside’ our body.

So THANK YOU to all of you for over 16 years of support! We couldn’t do what we love to do if it weren’t for you!

Louis Vuitton 2017 San Francisco City Guide!

Louis Vuitton 2017 San Francisco City Guide!


Dermaplus is in LOUIS VUITTON 2017 San Francisco City Guide! We are incredibly honored and running out to pick up a copy of this book right away!


“Owner Andrea Ghigliazza runs this five-room med spa, with a small team of fellow aestheticians(and Registered Nurse), established in 2001. The space is sleek and minimalist, sparsely adorned with white lacquer shelving and contemporary furniture. In addition to waxing and laser hair removal, the spa has earned a particular following for its expert facials. Dermaplus forgoes trendy gimmicks, providing customized, meticulous treatments designed to combat signs of aging, weather damage and breakouts. Aestheticians use the botanical-based-in-house line, alongside products from True, Obagi, and Jan Marini to solve individual skin issues. Regulars swear by Laser Genesis, a thirty-minute add-on that gently warms and stimulates the skin to soothe chronic redness and dryness. Every Facial concludes with a meditative neck, shoulder, hand and foot massage.”

The Jade Roller!

The Jade Roller Is Here!!

Now available at Dermaplus Skin Boutique and on our Online Store!


Read on to learn all about this fabulous de-puffing and de-toxing massage tool!

*Original content from*


Okay, these are so much better than cucumber slices. Rolling smooth, cold jade stones over your skin—using chic little beauty tools called jade rollers—has been playing a beauty booster role in skin-care treatments.

The idea comes from a centuries-old beauty tradition. Jade rolling is believed to have been practiced by wealthy Chinese women, and jade is known in Traditional Chinese Medicine as a healing semi-precious gemstone and is considered a sign of power and immortality, which is how it found its way into holistic spas.

What is jade rolling?

It’s not going to make you immortal (wouldn’t that be something), but rolling jade across the skin will get you glowing. It revs up circulation, de-puffs the eye area, and improves skin elasticity—and since it promotes lymphatic drainage, it’s detoxifying.

It can help calm and even out your complexion, and make it noticeably less puffy, defining your cheekbones, jawline, and brows (as we can attest).

While the idea of using jade stones on your face sounds exotic, it’s actually pretty simple to DIY this beauty trend, and you’ll notice the difference immediately.

So put on your sweatpants (or fancy spa robe), light a candle, and do your jade rolling at home.”

To Use:

  • Massage over freshly cleansed skin.
  • You may roll over one of our amazing Dermaplus masks to enhance product penetration or once you have applied your serums and moisturizer.
  • Roll/massage in down and outward motions, to encourage lymphatic drainage.
  • Use the large end for the full face to massage and stimulate collagen synthesis as well as calm redness and brighten skin tone.
  • Use the small end for under the eyes for de-puffing, and in the contours of your cheeks for sculpting.

We simply sit it by our bedside table, and reach for this little guy while laying in bed with a book! Roll, Roll, Roll your way to calm, radiant skin!
