It may look like it’s face shaving, but dermaplaning is so much more than that. It is a highly effective way to remove the outer layers of dead skin that cause a dull complexion. It can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and surface irregularities to soften and smooth your skin. This procedure is for most skin types and can usually be done over the lunch hour.
There is a facial for every ski type, and each facial is customized to each patient, depending on concerns. A facial typically consists of cleansing, exfoliation, steam, extractions, massage, mask, oxygen and finishing skincare products. Facials last 1-2 hours and can be combined with other treatments such as LED light treatments, oxygen treatment and microdermabrasion.
A chemical peel consists of applying a chemical solution to the skin, causing it to exfoliate and eventually peel off. This reveals new, regenerated skin that’s smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin. Chemical peels can be customized for all skin types and concerns, from sun spots to acne scars. Peels take under an hour, and you’ll want to take special care of your skin in the sun after treatment.
LED light treatments
LED is a proven way of reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improving uneven skin tone. It also reduces pore sizes and brightens the skin. The Omnilux offers three different light therapies. One tackles acne-prone skin, another reduces inflammatory response in the skin, and the other increases tone in the newly produced collagen.
