Have you noticed your skin beginning to appear dull and less vibrant over the years? Has the appearance of premature aging and damaged skin tissue taken a toll on the appearance of your complexion? The natural aging process and sun damage can cause our skin to appear aged and dull. At ALC MedSpa, we offer specialized Dermaplaning treatments to help you achieve a renewed and glowing complexion.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a rejuvenating skin care treatment that uses an advanced method of deep exfoliation. It is performed through the use of a manual method and scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dull, dead skin cells, in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Treatments are similar to microdermabrasion in the sense that they are both forms of physical exfoliation. However, microdermabrasion uses a sanding and suction method to eliminate dead skin cells. It is designed to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth, and chin. Dermaplaning works to safely scrape off and exfoliate away the top layer of skin, making it well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. Dermaplaning treatments are safe for all skin types, except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, you should wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment.
How Does it Work?
During an initial consultation and skin analysis, a personalized treatment plan is created that is tailored to the specific needs and aesthetic desires of each patient. During treatment, the skin is first cleansed of any makeup and beauty products. A small, sterile scalpel is then gently moved across the surface of skin to exfoliate and remove the outermost layer of damaged and dead tissue. This is effective at activating the natural production of collagen and elastin, while encouraging natural healing processes within the underlying layers of skin. The result is a smoother, firmer, and vibrant complexion.
The treatment process is quick, and causes minimal discomfort. Since it is non-invasive, there is no required downtime following sessions. However, you should be sure to use protective sunscreen following treatments. This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream.
