What You Need to Know About Dermaplaning

If you want a tried-and-true exfoliating treatment that has stood the test of time, you might want to consider dermaplaning.  This treatment method uses a scalpel-like instrument to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz.  Luxe Style Bar provides a clean and safe environment to complete your dermaplaning appointment with a licensed professional.  Learn everything you need to know before your visit.

The Process

Dermaplaning is also known as the “lady shave” because a scalpel-like instrument is used to remove the outer layer of skin to improve your overall skin condition.  A professional use a single blade that looks like a scalpel to remove the skin cells.  This tricks the skin into thinking it is wounded, which in turn boosts collagen production.  It also prevents dirt, oil, and dead skin from getting trapped in your follicles, which can help prevent acne.

What It Treats

Dermaplaning is used to treat or prevent:

  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Acne
  • Dull complexion

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Some of the most often-cited benefits of dermaplaning are:

  • Fast – You can drastically improve the complexion of your skin through dermaplaning treatments that only take a few minutes to complete.
  • Efficient – When you remove dead skin cells, your skin care products will be absorbed into your skin better. Dermaplaning lays the foundation for other skin treatments and can be completed in a matter of minutes.
  • Great results – Dermaplaning gets rid of facial hair, removes peach fuzz, provides a smooth base for foundation, and makes your skin softer.
  • Approved – Because dermaplaning does not use harsh chemicals or have serious side effects, many dermatologists back this skin solution for improving complexion.

Difference Between Microneedling and Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion and microneedling are two skin care procedures that treat various skin conditions. However, their uses, methods, and processes are different. Read on to learn more about the key differences between microdermabrasion and microneedling.

Their Uses

If you are wondering about which method is best for you, a key consideration is what type of skin condition you are hoping to treat.

Microdermabrasion is often recommended to treat:

  • Acne scars
  • Sunspots
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dull or tired skin

Microneedling improves the skin condition and complexion by:

  • Repairing acne scars
  • Reducing fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Shrinking pores
  • Skin texture

Methods Used

Microdermabrasion uses a handheld vacuum, brush, and crystals to unclog your pores and smooth away dead skin cells. This treatment option increases blood flow to stimulate the production of collagen, making your skin more elastic and stronger. It also helps to get nutrients to deeper layers of your skin. Topical solutions may also be applied during the process, which are often more effective after microdermabrasion.

In contrast, microneedling uses tiny needles to puncture hundreds of spots to invigorate new skin growth to reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles. The skin naturally forms collagen and repairs itself. Treatment may involve a derma roller, which is a small wheel that has rows of fine needles surrounding it.

Pain or Discomfort

Microdermabrasion and microneedling therapies are both considered a non-invasive treatment. People who receive microdermabrasion usually do not suffer any pain and often have a very short healing process. However, it is common to experience slight side effects like skin irritation, tenderness, and redness.

Microneedling tends to be a bit more painful uncomfortable, but you may be able to use a numbing cream before treatment starts. It usually takes a few days after a treatment for your skin to feel normal. You may experience symptoms of redness, bruising, swelling, bleeding, or oozing.

Number of Treatments

Some people report seeing results from microdermabrasion right away after their treatment. They may feel smoother skin and have a more even toned and brighter complexion.

Because microneedling deals with the skin just below the surface, it may take several treatments or months after treatment to notice results. This is because the skin may take longer to produce natural collagen.

Which Is Best for You?

Microdermabrasion and microneedling are both quick, efficient, and cost-effective cosmetic treatments that can dramatically improve your overall skin tone. They both work to improve common issues like discoloration, dull complexion, fine lines, and blemishes. However, they are not the same.
