Dermaplaning is a safe, effective way to rejuvenate the overall health and appearance of your skin. It is a non-invasive, easy, fast and painless approach to helping your skin stay refreshed and young. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently 'shave' the skins surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair/peach fuzz. This hair can trap dirt and oil causing breakouts and a dull complexion.
The process of dermaplaning is one of:
- Removing dead skin cells. - Minimising old skin scars from acne or sun damage. - Smoothing your skin, removing fine hairs. - Reducing the visibility of large pores or skin pigment variation. - Releasing clogged pores and encouraging your skin to produce new skin cells and collagen for a more youthful appearance.
The results are immediate and there is very little down time. Unlike other exfoliating treatments such as microdermabrasion, Dermaplaning is suitable for nearly all skin types. The physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate the skin.
A mild Salicylic Peel is performed at the end of the treatment, which is suitable for all skin types, particularly dry, oily and acne prone. It controls oil production, reduces the size of pores and unifies skin tone.
I use the Mesoestetic professional skincare range.
Dermal Needling is a form of digital collagen induction using fine needles to perforate the skin and encourage natural collagen deposition. The needles sit within a cartridge in a pen like device, which is filled with a serum specific to your skin type that is delivered into the skin at the time of the treatment.
The increase in trauma that it causes leads to increased results as it stimulates the body’s natural healing functions more. The needles penetrate into the skin through the epidermis and deposit the serums deeper down into the dermal-epidermal junction, leading to longer lasting results. A mild Salicylic Peel is performed prior to the needling to prep the skin.
Dermal Needling is suitable for clients with skin issues such as acne scars, fine lines and deeper set lines and wrinkles. The beauty of Dermal Needling is that it targets the problem areas more directly by penetrating the skin. Redness can usually last for 24 hours.
