Dermaplaning, also known as Epidermal Leveling, is an effective non-invasive office procedure in which dead skin cells and vellous hair (peach fuzz) is removed. This treatment is performed by using a surgical blade that gently scrapes the outermost layers of the epidermis, leaving your skin feeling soft with a vibrant glow. Once dermaplaning is complete a mild chemical peel, a skin brightener, or a hydrating mask can be applied to further rejuvenate the skin. This results in better penetration of skin care produces and a more even make-up application. Many wonder if after dermaplaning will their hair grow back thicker and darker. Dermaplaning does not alter or stimulate the hair follicle so the hair will return just as it was in usually about two to four weeks later. Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and improves light surface wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, helps reduce pore size and encourages generation of new healthy skin cells. This treatment is great even before a special event since there is no downtime. Call today to see if dermaplaning is right for you!
The Dermapen treatment can provide drastic results improving the appearances of the acne scars. The micro needles of the Dermapen create new collagen and elastin to be generated and deposited called collagenesis, however the added benefit of new capillary growth is also a result which can improve blood supply to the area, which helps, create healthier existing skin as well as provide a healthy foundation for the new skin. The physical nature of “skin-needling” breaks up this fibrous and uneven scar tissue and stimulates the growth of new tissue. Currently there are ablative and non-ablative treatments offered which can damage the epidermis and evaporate the skin leading to thinner epidermis problems. The Dermapen keeps the epidermis integrity full intact while treating the area, which quickens healing time and causes less pain.
