Microdermabrasion is a quick, non-invasive procedure used to resurface the skin. This procedure gently removes only the very top layers of damaged skin by “sand blasting” them with tiny crystals. This technique exfoliates and gently resurfaces the skin—promoting the formation of new smoother, clearer skin.
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that removes surface debris for the outermost layer of the skin with a custom blade. This procedure is quick, safe, and popular to rid the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin with no downtime. Dermaplaning has gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country because it is a great exfoliation technique, without the chemicals that are in peels. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time.
The benefits of dermaplaning include:
• Increased absorption of topical products
• Immediately diminished appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
• Primes skin for chemical peel
• Healthier, more radiant appearance
