The holiday season is coming up! Looking your best this time of year can help you feel confident at holiday get-togethers and ready for photos.
Facial Dermaplaning is now available at Fayetteville Plastic Surgery Specialists & Cape Fear Aesthetics MedSpa! Read on to see why Dermaplaning is the perfect addition to your holiday skincare regimen:
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a small scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells to reveal silkier skin, a brighter complexion, and a more radiant glow. This treatment allows for greater penetration of skincare products and eliminates peach fuzz, creating a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.
Results are visible immediately after treatment (which makes this a great pre-party facial!). Dermaplaning triggers the cell regeneration process, which can improve the appearance of facial scars and hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning can help prepare skin for other facial procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Dermaplaning is recommended for men and women of all skin types.
If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
Dermaplaning is also safe and effective for pregnant and nursing women. There are no harsh chemicals involved.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs.
First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and hold a sterile blade at a 45 degree angle in the other hand and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
About 30-45 minutes
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
There is zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher.
WHAT RESULTS CAN BE EXPECTED?
You will immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. As an added bonus, all of your peach fuzz will be gone!
RECOMMENDED COURSE OF TREATMENT?
Dermaplaning removes about a month’s worth of dead skin cells. This treatment is best done once per month with time to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
WHO SHOULD GIVE ME THIS TREATMENT?
Dermaplaning should be administered by a board certified nurse practitioner or licensed aesthetician who specializes in this procedure.
