Regular exfoliation helps your skin look more youthful and supple while increasing product penetration. Dermaplaning leaves your skins surface smooth and also increases your product penetration. Chemical peels help improve the health and look of your skin.

MICRODERMABRASION AND DERMAPLANE

Mechanical exfoliation, whether Microdermabrasion or Dermaplane, rejuvenates the overall health and appearance of your skin, and allows better product penetration.

Benefits include:
– Reducing the appearance of fine lines
– Reducing the appearance of age spots
– Assists with minor revision of scars
– Extraction of blackheads or whiteheads
– Promotes the growth of healthy new skin cells
– Stimulates and exercises skin
– Increases cellular turnover

Our two Types of Mechanical Exfoliation Include:

Microdermabrasion – Uses a natural diamond-tipped wand, paired with suction, which is then passed gently over the skin. Varying grades of diamond tips are used to tailor your service according to your skin’s needs.

DermaSweep Microdermabrasion – Incorporates the infusion of a serum into your freshly exfoliated skin.

Dermaplane – Uses a surgical blade, when held at a 45-degree angle, not only deeply exfoliates the skin, but also removes fine vellus hairs

Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for deep exfoliation the epidermis. An added benefit of this procedure is ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough or dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. All skin types, even the most sensitive skin types such as clients with Rosacea can benefit from Dermaplaning.

Who Can Perform Dermaplaning?
A licensed esthetician who has been professionally trained can perform the treatment.

Once The Vellus Hair Is Removed Will It Grow Back Thicker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly, usually in about 4 weeks. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies; Vellus hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body, terminal hair is the coarse hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas. Dermaplaning, laser, or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.

Can Dermaplaning Cause The Skin To Bleed?
Scraping, nicks, and small cuts in the skin are possible, but rare, and can cause slight bleeding like that of a paper cut. It is very important to have a licensed esthetician who is properly trained to perform the treatment in a medical spa.

What Areas Can Be Treated?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face only. You should not Dermaplane the eyelids, nose, or chest.

Can Dermaplaning Be Performed With A Chemical Peel?
Yes. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to prep the skin for a chemical peel.

Does The Skin Actually Peel From Dermaplaning?
No. When Dermaplaning is performed as prep for a chemical peel the visible exfoliation that the client sees will be as a result of the peel used in the treatment.

Who Can Be Treated?
All skin types, even the most sensitive skin types such as clients with Rosacea can benefit from Dermaplaning. Men can be treated on non-beard areas only.

Who Cannot Be Treated?
Clients with active acne outbreaks or cold sores should not be treated until lesions are healed. Dermaplaning is great for diminishing acne scars but should not be performed during active outbreaks. Clients with bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting should not be treated. Clients with diabetes not under control by diet or medication should not be treated. Clients undergoing cancer treatment should also not be treated.

Is There Any Downtime After Dermaplaning?
No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft, plus makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish. This is a must-have procedure before an important event!

How Often Can This Procedure Be Performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks for maintenance and proper skin exfoliation. For correction of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin rejuvenation purposes, it may be performed at a closer interval.
