Facials & Peels
Dermaplaning in Palos Heights
An Exfoliating Treatment That Removes Peach Fuzz and Dead Skin.
Buff away the dead skin cells that make complexions look dull and contribute to clogged pores and spots. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get down into the skin where they need to be rather than sitting on the skin’s surface. It removes peach fuzz / vellus hair and creates clear channels into the skin as well as a soft, smooth surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly.
As we age, our cell turnover decreases and this affects our skin texture and tone, Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion.
How Does It Work?
Dermaplaning uses a surgical blade to perform a deep exfoliation. The edge of the scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle to scrape the build-up of dirt and oils in and around the skin and vellus hair.
The vellus hair is completely removed during the process leaving skin ultra-smooth and creating the perfect base for make-up application.
What Can I Expect During the Treatment?
After eye makeup is removed the skin will be double-cleansed to create a clear canvas for treatment. Skin is then blotted and degreased using an oil-free toner. The dermaplaning procedure is methodically carried out working the whole face one area at a time. After the dermaplaning is complete we will apply a serum or moisturizer depending on skin type and a lip and eye product to finish.
The treatment is completely pain-free and no downtime is required.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Dermaplaning is a very safe procedure. Skin is stretched during the procedure and the blade is always held at a 45-degree angle to reduce the risk of nicking the skin with the blade. If you have dry patches of skin, a small amount of serum is applied to enable to the blade to glide across the skin smoothly.
Skin may be a little pink immediately after treatment due to being stretched but this normally subsides within an hour or so.
Peach fuzz / vellus hairs do not come back thicker and stronger. It will grow back at exactly the same rate, thickness and texture as before.
Dermaplaning treatment can be carried out every 3-4 weeks and removal of peach fuzz / vellus hair and dead skin can be achieved with a single treatment.
One of the main benefits of this advanced facial is that it can be paired to enhance the benefits and results of other treatments such as skin peels, microdermabrasion, enzyme treatments, oxygen therapy, transdermal therapy or vacuum therapy. By removing the build-up of hair, oils, dirt and dry skin it increases penetration of product and complementary therapies meaning quicker, better results.
For best results, we recommend a package combining Dermaplaning, Microdermabrasion and Oxygen Therapy.
