Dermaplaning, a form of mechanical exfoliation, is an alternative to chemical peels, microdermabrasion & waxing for all skin types especially sensitive & rosacea. This non-invasive, simple & safe procedure is used for removing dead skin from the epidermis (approximately 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cell), removes the fine vellus hair, “peach fuzz” for improved product penetration. Dermaplaning is most beneficial for clients with hyperkeratotic buildup (dull, dry, rough skin), superficial pigmentation, mild acne scarring, fine lines & uneven texture. Dermaplaning is an excellent pre-surgical/laser or deeper chemical peel treatment. Dermaplaning is a great option for clients who are pregnant, lactating or too sensitive for the vacuum associated with microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning is also a viable option for clients who have sensitive skin/telangiectasia & looking for a deeper exfoliation without the risk of topical penetration. Dermaplaning leaves the skin smooth with no down time which makes this an excellent pre-event treatment. Dermaplaning can be performed every 3-4 weeks. 20-70 min Contraindications: inflamed acne.
Microdermabrasion is one of the top 5 non-surgical, non-invasive resurfacing procedures & the most popular exfoliation method performed in a skin care facility. Microdermabrasion refers to the mechanical exfoliation of the superficial layers of the skin using high pressure particle exfoliation to remove dead skin cells while simultaneously creating suction for the removal of particles and stimulation. Microdermabrasion is an effective form of skin rejuvenation for those with a thicker epidermis, hyperkeratotic build up, superficial pigmented lesions and non-inflamed form of acne (acne grade I & II), reduction of surgical scars and stretch marks. It is also a proficient method to use for a boost in exfoliation between other skin maintenance treatments. Contraindications Active skin infection, cold sore, Accutane use, rosacea, telangictasia, erythema, fillers 14 day post injections, Botox 10 days post injection, cosmetic surgery 8 weeks post op.
