Microdermabrasion is a method of exfoliating the skin and reducing the size of pores to erase smaller facial lines. It is a gentle, non-invasive procedure that leaves most patients relaxed and calm. It is just as effective as other mainstream skin treatments, too, specifically with superficial imperfections.
The microdermabrasion treatment industry has grown considerably in recent years, helped by innovations and advancements in effectiveness and patient comfort. There are multiple different microdermabrasion methods now available, including dermaplaning.
For patients with superficial skin variations, dermaplaning is one of the most advanced options. It has been a growing part of the medical skin care industry for the past two decades, helping to reveal healthier, more radiant skin.
The treatment leaves a glowing effect without red, painful irritation. Of all treatments for facial skin, dermaplaning is the smoothest.
It is also more affordable. Low risk, low cost, high reward!
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
The skin cells on the face that are dead or problematic, and can cause a multitude of issues. These cells are typically located across the top of the skin. The non-invasive and painless procedure simply involves scraping the dead skin away.
The delicate process removes a very thin layer, revealing clean, new skin without causing immediate damage.
The result of the process is quicker skin cell turnover. The new outward layer of skin is smooth and soft, showing immediate results. The exfoliation also causes the body to increase healing functions, providing new, healthy skin cells and fast. Dermaplaning is useful for any skin color or pigmentation, because it uses the body’s natural ability to create new skin.
Luckily, the procedure doesn’t trigger any hair follicles, meaning no vellus facial hair will grow back any darker, thicker or faster.
The Dermaplaning Process
The first steps are to degrease, cleanse, and tone the face.
Next we will remove all dirt, excess skin, and oil with a sterile scalpel. The fine blade can remove things that most cleansers won’t get.
After the cleansing, the proper medical clinic products designed for specific skin types will give UV protection through a gentle massage. No red, irritated skin, and you will be free to reapply makeup right away.
