Dermaplaning is an incredibly gentle skin resurfacing procedure that a sharp exfoliating blade is used to scrape off dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and other surface impurities.
Pro Dermaplaning is one of the most comprehensive exfoliations of any dermaplaning treatment. This is accomplished by combining customized mechanical and chemical exfoliation techniques- utilizing chemical resurfacing and professional serums to precisely target skin concerns.
Whatever your skin concerns may be Pro Dermaplaning will instantly reveal smoother skin, help remove hyperpigmented dead skin cells and brighten your complexion.
Pro-dermaplaning can make your skin look younger; though, it doesn’t stop the aging process. Some people also get dermaplaning for hair removal. This is only a temporary fix because your hair will grow back.
How Dermaplaning works?
The dermaplaning blade moves back and forth across your skin. It doesn’t make cuts in your skin, but gently shaves off the top layers of skin.
At Nell Laser Clinic, after the dermaplaning procedure, we provide skin treatment to reduce redness, and tenderness for a refresher, smoother and healthier skin.
The treatment can last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. The length of the procedure depends on the size of the area that needs treatment.
Most people get the procedure on their face, but you can do it anywhere on your body.
Dermaplaning vs. microdermabrasion: What’s the difference?
Both are skin resurfacing procedures. Each procedure uses different tools and takes off different amounts of dead skin cells and impurities.
Dermaplaning uses a scalpel (knife) or razor to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair. It improves skin brightness, smoothness, and freshness.
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive treatment that propels natural mineral crystals onto the surface of the skin and vacuums dead skin and impurities. It means the process of scraping away the top layer of the skin. This action helps to stimulate microcirculation, increasing the blood supply to regenerate the skin. It also stimulates the formation of new collagen and elastin to improve skin texture and elasticity.
