DERMAplaning Epidermal Levelling
Dermaplaning (AKA Epidermal leveling) is an exfoliation procedure designed to smooth the appearance, reduce fine lines, and reduce acne scarring. The innovative technique carefully removes the top layers of the tissue, ridding the face of the dead skin and ‘peach fuzz’ that can trap in dirt and oils. The procedure will allow for new skin to appear, brightening the complexion.
No pre-treatment is required before Dermaplaning. Perfect for a last-minute procedure, dramatic results can be seen immediately after the first treatment. No chemicals are used during the dermaplaning procedure making is suitable for every skin type and tone, even darker complexions. It is gentle and safe for pregnant or nursing patients. In an afternoon, the face can take on a healthy, glowing appearance with the cost or recovery time associated with other more invasive procedures.
The Ideal Candidate
Dermaplaning is safe for use on all skin types and tones. Both men and women will experience a smoother, brighter appearance after an Dermaplaning treatment. The ideal candidate will understand the procedure, have realistic expectations, and be in overall good health. Not recommended for people with severe acne. You cannot be on Accutane.
The Dermaplaning treatment will take about 45 minutes in the office. To begin, the aesthetician will cleanse and prep the face. Next a blade is meticulously drawn across the face. Each movement of the blade is like shaving. Once the entire area has been treated, patients are able to return to their normal activities.
There is little downtime after an Dermaplaning treatment. Clients can return to school or work immediately. Initially, the face may be slightly red, although this will quickly resolve. Should another procedure, such a Chemical Peel, follow the treatment, specific at home instructions will be provided.
For optimal results, it is recommended that client repeat the procedure once a month. Add-On procedures, such as a Procedure Mask and Light Therapy can be added to increase the benefits and maintain the newly acquired, youthful complexion.
