DERMAPLANING + MICRONEEDLING: AN OPTIMAL COMBO TREATMENT

Dermaplaning and Microneedling are Effective Stand alone treatments. But combined they can produce optimal results. Dermaplaning is a safe and simple skin rejuvenation treatment intended to exfoliate the epidermis and remove facial peach fuzz. It leaves the skin smoother and looking healthier.  This exfoliation allows for your skincare products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers.

Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for those with excess vellous hair the can cause dirt and oil to clog follicles and is a perfect add on for many aesthetic procedures.  Dermaplaning is also a prime exfoliation treatment for those who are pregnant or nursing and not allowed to use chemical peeling agents.

Patients often wonder if their hair will grow back thicker and darker after dermaplaning.  This is simply a myth.  As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will continue to grow back at the same rate and texture as it did prior to treatment.

Microneedling or collagen induction therapy mimics the effects of fractional laser by generating micro-punctures in the skin. This controlled wound-healing response in the deep layers of the skin stimulates the collagen. It results in a smoother and more youthful appearance. The micropunctures create a controlled injury underneath the surface of the skin, which then sends a wake up call to the collagen to start producing more.  The skin plumps and thickens in response to this. Microneedling aims to improve mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, decreases pore size, and tightens lax skin.

What is a microneedling treatment? The skincare provider holds a pen-like device with a sterile, disposable tip housing tiny needles used to pierce the skin. Most people experience redness and light swelling post-treatment that can last up to 48 hours. This is suitable for all skin types and colors, and there is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Combining these two treatments will give you the most desirable outcome. Together these procedures are ideal to treat uneven skin tone and texture, large pores, fine lines, unwanted facial hair, and acne scars. Dermaplaning before Micro-needling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin layers, allowing the patient to achieve the most desirable outcome.

Runners: Run Off That Sun Damage!

Runners take note! Long gone are the days of baking yourself in the sun for that fashionable tan. Natural, healthy skin is now the look people strive for and can be achieved despite long hours of running under the sun’s harmful rays.

Runners and cyclists enjoy training and racing outdoors. Along with that comes excessive sun exposure and an increased risk of sun photo-1damage, premature aging, and even skin cancer. In the summer months, runners tend to wear short-sleeved shirts or tank tops, shorts, and some even go shirtless, leaving the majority of their skin sun-exposed. You do not realize the damage you are doing to your skin until years later when it comes back to haunt you in the form of sun spots, broken vessels, redness, lax skin, and wrinkles. The good news is this photoaging can be corrected with various treatments and products. We proudly offer the following services to help restore your skin health.

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light)

is a treatment that delivers light energy similar to a laser device and is commonly used to reduce skin discoloration, including sun spots, redness, and broken capillaries. In addition to reducing discoloration, people often see a reduction in pore size, overall brightening of the skin, and slight collagen stimulation.

Microneedling

is the “non-laser” equivalent to Fraxel for collagen stimulation. This service uses microneeedles in a small cartridge to form micro punctures into the epidermis and top layer of the dermis. As we age, collagen and elastin production slows down causing uneven, lax skin texture and these micropunctures send a “wake up call” to the collagen reminding it to activate cell regeneration again. The result is firmer skin with greater elasticity, a reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, smaller pore size, and overall improvement in skin health. Also successfully treats acne scars and hyperpigmentation.

Chemical Peels

improve many skin imperfections including discoloration from sun damage, acne, and softens fine lines and wrinkles. Peels effectively remove the damaged outer layers of skin and range from mild to aggressive depending on the severity of the skin issue and the desired result.

Microdermabrasion

is an easy yet highly effective treatment that allows tiny crystal particles to exfoliate the top layer of skin, leaving your skin smooth and free of dead skin cells. This procedure reduces fine lines, light scars, and hyperpigmentation while reducing dead skin, which allows your skincare products to penetrate deeper and be more effective.
