01 Jun Dermaplaning in Phoenix: The New Antiaging Procedure that gives Lasting Results
Dermaplaning, also called epidermal blading or leveling, is a non-invasive skin treatment used to make the skin appear youthful and smooth. Much like microdermabrasion, dermaplanning removes the top layers of the facial skin, eliminating dead skin cells and surface imperfections.
How does dermaplaning differ from microdermabrasion?
With microdermabrasion, the esthetician uses a special machine with a wand-like device. On the tip of the wand are tiny chips of diamond or crystal. The tip is moved across the facial skin to scrape away the topmost layers. With dermaplanning, the dermatologist or esthetician uses a small bladed device to remove the skin layers.
What can I expect during the dermaplaning appointment at our Tempe Med Spa?
After the skincare specialist determines you are a candidate for dermaplaning, she will position you on the procedure table. After cleansing the skin with a mild antiseptic, the skin care specialist uses a small, sterile surgical blade (called a dermatome) to carefully stroke over the skin in shaving motions. The blade removes dry, dead surface skin, revealing healthy, new skin. The total procedure takes around 20-30 minutes.
What areas are treated with the dermatome instrument?
The physician will only perform dermaplaning on the face, being careful to avoid the neck and eyelids. There are no acid or chemical solutions used, and this treatment works best for sensitive-skinned clients who cannot tolerate chemical peels.
Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for people who want a non-invasive, non-surgical affordable skin rejuvenation treatment, which focuses on a quick treatment session. In addition, this treatment works well for people looking for no major side effects and no recovery time. Dermaplaning is recommended for people with:
- Dry, rough skin
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin tone
- Fine lines
- Unwanted facial hair
- Large pores
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an effective, safe treatment for skin rejuvenation. It produces a clearer, smoother skin texture and complexion while minimizing minor scars and fine lines. Dermplaning removes dead skin more cleanly and swiftly than the natural shedding process. Because the dermatome is used to remove top skin layers, it is considered a more aggressive form of exfoliation than microdermabrasion.
How much does dermaplaning cost?
Dermaplanning cost anywhere from $50 to $175 per session. We have Specials available, call our top Phoenix Med Spa today for a complimentary consultation!
