Dermaplaning - NOW AVAILABLE

Dermaplaning is a safe, painless and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires 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 (aka peach fuzz). The procedure can be performed monthly, in about sixty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning removes onot only removes all the dead skin cells but also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth.

Benefits of dermaplaning

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs, as opposed to terminal hair, will not grow back thicker or darker. Microdermabrasion  which also physically exfoliates skin, does not remove vellus hair. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.

  • Provides deeper product penetration

  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types

Who should consider dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels (peels penetrate skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated). 

Don't try this at home

It's important to note that dermaplaning employs a specific technique requiring a delicate touch and a skilled approach to resurface skin. Thus, I don't recommend shaving at home as an alternative to dermaplaning.   Unlike shaving, dermaplaning is performed freehand with a surgical scalpel (the average razor has two blades which are also duller than surgical blades) on tautly stretched skin. The methodology requires short strokes at a certain angle in particular patterns depending on the facial region.

BENEFITS OF DIAMOND MICRODERMABRASION

You’ll be thrilled with the results of even a single Diamond Microdermabrasion treatment, especially when you have a special occasion on your calendar and need your skin to look refreshed and healthy.

It’s Non-Invasive 
The Diamond Microdermabrasion process tackles flaws at the skins surface level by treating its outermost layer. This process removes the skins surface layer of dead skin cells, via gentle exfoliation. As a result, it’s not invasive, and your skin isn’t abraded or wounded past the epidermis.

It’s Quick 
Another advantage of the Diamond Microdermabrasion process is that it’s fast. According to research conducted by The Academy of Dermatology, it usually takes less than one hour. You may require various sessions, especially if you want to attain optimal results. However, most people need only one session per month.

Perfect for All Skin Types 
The Diamond Microdermabrasion procedure is ideal for all skin types and for cosmetic issues associated with aging skin, like age spots, sun damage and any other kind of discoloration as well as fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps people who have oily skin and helps reduce acne scarring. 

Reliable and Safe
In the hands of an experienced professional esthetician, this treatment is far more reliable and safe compared to home Microdermabrasion kits.

Improves the Results of Skincare Products & Facials
The Diamond Microdermabrasion facial treatment enables products to be better absorbed into the skin and ensures that results from other types of Dermalogica Facials are enhanced, making your skin look and feel even more beautiful. Better absorption rates ensure that you get optimal results from the products you are using due to easy penetration into the skin. It’s also compatible with all of your personal beauty regimes and will never interfere with them.

Helps Control Breakouts
The culprit behind pimples is actually the presence of harmful substances in your pores. When your pores are clogged, oil and bacteria build up. Diamond Microdermabrasion treatments invade the pores and release the clogging agents. Having treatments on a regular basis ensures that your ducts are immaculate and operating at 100%, helping to eliminate the risk of future breakouts.
