Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective physical exfoliation treatment. This treatment consists of the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).
A chemical peel is a great form of exfoliation for your skin using “acids” to gently break up the “glue-like” substance that holds the top layer of dead skin together. This technique used to improve and smooth the texture of the skin. Chemical peels are intended to remove the outermost layers of the skin to reveal fresher newer skin.
Microdermabrasion is another form of exfoliation. A machine, using crystals (aluminum oxide), is used to gently spray these crystals on to the skin (think mild sandblasting) then vacuum them off. This exfoliates the outermost layer to help promote circulation and to stimulate collagen growth.
Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen induction therapy, is a cosmetic procedure that involves repeatedly puncturing the skin with tiny, sterile needles. This treatment is based on the skin’s natural ability to repair itself. Micro-needling treatments create superficial “micro-channels” to the outermost layer of the skin, inducing the healing process including new collagen production. A highly concentrated serum of Hyaluronic acid and Vitamin C is also applied and pushed into these “micro-channels.” Your skin will be red and slightly irritated for approximately 1-3 days. Your skin will also continue to “heal” for approximately 30 days.
Using a combination of these treatments can yield tremendous results! We can combine either a Dermaplane OR a Microdermabrasion WITH a Chemical peel. This combination will help you see results faster as we are doing double the exfoliation!
