TCA, JESSNER, KLIGMAN
Dermaplaning removes the outer most layers of dead skin cells and vellous (peach fuzz) facial hair leaving the skin instantly smooth, supple and vibrant. Dermaplaning is fastly becoming the most popular form of “manual exfoliation” for skin rejuvenation.
How this treatment is performed and is it safe?
It is safely performed by using a sterile surgical blade. The skin is held taut as the blade is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and stroked along the skin, just like shaving.
Will the hairs on the face grow back thicker or darker?
No. It is physiologically impossible for your vellous hairs to grow back thicker. Once the hair is cut, it has a blunt edge, but this blunt edge does not mean that the hair structure itself has been physiologically altered. There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies. Vellous (tiny translucent blonde hair) and Terminal (thicker hair that grows under the arms, pubic area, eye brows, mustache and beard for men and legs) Sometimes, waxing can make the hair appear to be “>
What areas of the skin can be treated?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face only. We do not blade the nose, eye lids, neck or chest.
How often is this procedure performed?
Every 3-4 weeks. Dermaplaning the skin actually removes about 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. We want the skin to complete it’s normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days.
Can dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?
Absolutely. Sometimes the skin does peel after dermaplaning. If the procedure is done at a two week interval, then the skin cycle has not been completed. Also, if using a chemical peel after, you may experience some superficial peeling. But the idea is not to over-exfoliate the skin. We just want to assist in the skin’s natural exfoliation process.
What skin types/conditions can be treated?
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning, however, we would not recommend this treatment for those suffering from acne. The oils from the sebaceous gland need to travel up and connect with the vellous hair. (Vellous hair does not have oil/sebaceous glands) If the hair is removed, then the oils tend to stay below where they are prone to mix with bacterial colonies, ultimately stimulating more acne.
TCA Chemical Peel
Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) can be used in many concentrations and is used to accomplish the following: smooth fine surface wrinkles, remove superficial blemishes, correct pigment problems. This removes outer layers of unhealthy skin. You may experience some burning and stinging, but this soon dissipates. After the outer skin layer peels, we replace it with new, more youthful skin. TCA peel makes your skin look fresh. It gets rid of any minor blemishes and age spots you may have. However, it has a minimal effect on deep wrinkles.
Vitamin C/Enzyme Peel
Imagine walking away in 45 minutes with tighter, brighter, more luminous skin. Four layers of vitamins and enzymes will penetrate to tighten the skin. Your face will then be drenched in moisture and you will walk away with a healthy glow!
