Dermaplaning Lemont IL

Dermaplaning, which is also called microplaning or blading, is a fantastic facial treatment that can take years off of your face. Dermaplaning facials are meant to set the clock back on your face as it will feel smoother and appear more radiant. 

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure that removes up to three weeks of dead skin build-up. Aestheticians use a sterile, 10-gauge surgical scalpel to razor your skin’s surface gently. Dermaplaning is a similar concept to shaving, except that it not only removes hair, but also dead or uneven skin.

A dermaplaning facial treatment is administered by one of Solana’s skilled aestheticians. An aesthetician will gently pull your skin tightly, and then lightly glide a dermaplaning blade in an upward motion at a 45 degree angle. Your aesthetician uses gentle and light feathering strokes, which removes dead skin, vellus hair and peach fuzz. 

One dermaplaning facial treatment can be completed in about 10-20 minutes. Dermaplaning is also downtime free, as you won’t have to worry about taking time off work while you recover. However, some patients have reported redness after two days. Dermaplaning is so gentle on your face that it can be repeated often. Your face will regenerate new skin cells right after the treatment.

If you’re wondering how often you should dermaplane, know that after three or four weeks it’s best to receive another treatment to maintain that fresh-faced glow.

Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type, and people who find it particularly useful have dull facial skin, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, acne scars, pockmarks or fine wrinkles. Dermaplaning aims to even the surface of your skin to produce a smoother look and feel.

Dermaplaning is completely pain free, as it reveals smooth and fresh skin. Some patients have reported a scraped feeling after treatments, but the pain is rare and considered very mild. This manual exfoliation process is great for most people, and even safe for pregnant women. However, while people with acne scars are great candidates for dermaplaning, there are better options for people with active acne. 

There are several benefits from dermaplaning that make it an extremely attractive beauty procedure. You’ll experience improved hyperpigmentation, so your skin’s color will look more even and smoother. Not only that, but it actually will be smoother as the tone and texture become more even.

With your face’s new smoothness your beauty product’s performance will be increased with better penetration, and makeup will sit evenly on the skin.

This smoothness reduces the visible signs of aging, alleviates acne problems and even corrects dull complexions. 

Dermaplaning is sometimes confused with microdermabrasion, which has a similar outcome, but is an entirely different treatment. Whereas dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to remove hair and dead skin, microdermabrasion uses an abrasive surface to “sand down” your skin.

Both produce wonderful results for your skin, however, receiving the positive effects of microdermabrasion will require more treatments, depending on your skin’s overall condition. The upside is that the effects generally last longer. Speak with a licensed aesthetician from Solana today to discover which treatment is right for you.
