Several trendy aesthetic treatments can be used to improve the overall tone and texture of your skin, such as dermaplane facial at CAS MediSpa in
Bloomington, IN. This non-invasive exfoliation treatment can achieve the glowing skin you’ve been trying to get from your over-the-counter products. When used regularly, this treatment can address issues such as pigmented scarring and uneven skin texture.
How Does a Dermaplane Facial Work?
A dermaplane facial is a simple, non-invasive aesthetic treatment that removes dead skin cells and unwanted hair from the surface of the skin with a thin, sterile blade. You may liken this treatment to shaving with a straight razor, but the effect is much better. Usually, this facial can remove the first few layers of dead skin cells from the upper dermal layers, which can result in improved skin texture, tone, and health.
This treatment can only be performed by a licensed aesthetic expert. Some steps of your treatment may include cleaning and sterilizing the skin, as well as following up your treatment with a hydrating serum. Usually, this treatment will take about one hour to complete.
One of the most attractive features of a dermaplane facial is the ability to customize your treatment with add-on aesthetic treatments after your appointment is finished. For example, see you can use the DMK enzyme treatment, chemical peels, microneedling, Hydrafacial, and many other facial treatments to enhance your desired results.
It can be a good idea to include add-on treatments into your treatment plan to achieve your specific aesthetic goals. Many people may want to improve the tone and texture of their skin, while also targeting issues related to aging, sun damage, and more. Using add-on treatments can promote the health of your skin so that your skin appearance can be even better in the future.
What Should You Do Before Treatment?
Before a deep exfoliation treatment such as this one, you’ll need to temporarily stop using other exfoliating products at home. This includes stopping the use of retinoids, salicylic acid, glycolic acid, and any other exfoliating products that may be part of your daily skincare routine. Be sure to check all the ingredients in the products that you use to eliminate unnecessary exfoliation before your treatment.
What Should You Do After Treatment?
After your treatment, the most important thing you can do is take good care of your skin. The two main things you can do to protect your skin after your treatment is to keep your skin moisturized and avoid direct contact with sunlight. In general, you will want to use simple moisturizers that include nutrient ingredients, such as vitamins, enzymes, niacinamide, hyaluronic acid, and even collagen. You should continue to avoid retinoids for a few days.
As for sunscreen, you should wear SPF 30 to 50 when you plan to be outside during the daytime. If you have sensitive skin or very fair skin, using a stronger sunscreen will offer you more protection. Be sure to read the instructions on your sunscreen so you can know whether you will need to reapply sun protection during the day.
How Soon Will You See Results?
Most of the time, you’ll be able to see the results of this treatment within a few days. Your results may even be visible on the same day as your treatment since your skin will appear brighter and more healthy. Your ideal results should develop two to five days after your treatment, particularly if you follow your aftercare instructions well.
What Are the Benefits of This Treatment?
There are several notable benefits to this treatment that make it attractive for those who are looking for a deep exfoliation option. For example, the ability to add other treatments after this one to customize your facial experience is very important for people who have multiple skin concerns. By customizing your treatment, you can be sure to address all of your concerns at one time and achieve your desired aesthetic goals much more quickly. Some other benefits include:
This exfoliating facial is a low-risk option because it does not involve the use of any chemicals, lasers, or ablative techniques that may harm the surface of the skin or cause an allergic reaction. This makes dermaplaning an excellent option for those who have a history of scarring or who have very sensitive skin.
A low-risk option also means that people who may have skin conditions such as eczema or some types of acne may also be able to use this treatment to exfoliate the skin. Furthermore, even pregnant women can use the treatment safely.
Another exceptional benefit of this treatment is the ability to use a dermaplane facial frequently. Many people use this treatment every four to eight weeks based on the sensitivity of their skin, their age, and their natural cellular turnover cycle. The ability to have frequent treatments makes it much easier to regulate your skin health.
You can also anticipate better product efficacy from your everyday skincare routine. When your skin is deeply and regularly exfoliated, this allows the active ingredients in your skincare products to penetrate deeper cell layers of skin cells, which then enhances your overall results. When your products can work more effectively, you’ll be able to more quickly target concerns related to aging, acne, and other aesthetic concerns.
Many people will also benefit from easier cosmetic application. Applying cosmetics will be easier because the lack of dead skin cells and hair on the skin surface will allow foundation and other cosmetics to spread more evenly on the skin. You may also notice that you will require fewer cosmetics to correct aesthetic concerns because the coverage from your makeup products will be better.
This treatment is frequently used to reduce scarring, particularly post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and post-inflammatory erythema. Scarring on the superficial layer of the skin always improves with regular exfoliation, particularly deep exfoliation that can remove multiple layers of dead skin cells at one time. If you are recovering from acne or other skin conditions, using this treatment can help you restore the even tone of your skin much faster.
The vellus hair or peach fuzz on the surface of your skin is normal, but many people may feel that this hair is excessive. Some may consider this hair unwanted, especially people who have naturally dark facial hair around the sides of the face. This treatment can be used to remove unwanted hair once a month or as frequently as needed, which brightens the appearance of your skin.
Finally, this treatment is an excellent option for improving the texture of your skin. Textural concerns typically fall under two categories: concerns related to dryness and concerns related to aging or scarring. For textural concerns related to skin dryness or roughness, exfoliation directly addresses this issue by removing dead skin cells.
Textual issues related to scarring and visible signs of aging like fine lines can also improve with repeated treatments. This is because the appearance of scars and lines will soften when dead skin cells are removed from the skin surface. The influx of blood flow to the skin may also mildly improve collagen production to somewhat reduce scars and lines.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Most people are good candidates for this treatment because it is low risk. You are likely a good candidate if you have pigmentation concerns, such as post-inflammatory pigmentation, sun damage, dark spots, and more. You may also be able to use the treatment to address concerns related to scarring and invisible aging.
Who Shouldn’t Use This Treatment?
Although the treatment is fairly universal, some people are not qualified to use this treatment. For example, if you have severe active acne or cystic acne, you’re not a good candidate for the treatment. Some other skin conditions may not allow you to use this treatment as well. To determine whether this treatment is ideal for you, you will need to attend a consultation appointment to assess the overall health of your skin.
