Why is Dermaplaning great for all skin types?

Published on January 22, 2019

We offer dermaplaning in Newnan and LaGrange.

What is Dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is a safe exfoliation procedure. A sterile surgical scalpel is used to shave the surface of the skin. It helps remove excess dead skin and peach fuzz hairs. The procedure is used on the face only. The procedure typically reveals smoother and brighter skin.

 

Why should someone consider Dermaplaning?

  • It helps remove facial hair that traps dirt and oil
  • Makes the skin smoother
  • Helps remove dead skin cells and “peachfuzz”
  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • It’s great for all skin types
  • No social downtime
  • Helps reduced the look of fine lines

 

 

How Often is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning is usually performed every three to four weeks.

 

What should I expect after the procedure?

Sometimes the skin will peel a little bit. This sometimes happens if there isn’t enough time between treatments for the hair’s growthcycle to be completed.

 

Common question (s):

 Will this procedure make the hair on my face get darker?

 

There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker.  Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peachfuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and color.  It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry.

    Blepharoplasty

    Blepharoplasty is utilized to repair sagging eyelid skin and correct unsightly fat pads. Depending on the nature of the issue, excess skin, redundant muscle, and bulging fat pads can be cosmetically corrected in order to restore a refreshed and more youthful appearance to the eyes. CO2 Laser can be used simultaneously with this procedure to remove unwanted skin growths and improve sun damaged skin.

    Chemical Peel

    The precise formulas in peels vary and the type utilized is personally adjusted to meet each patient’s needs. For example, tricholoracetic acid (TCA) is a medium depth peel, which can eliminate brown spots and help to even out textural irregularities on the face and neck. Downtime is usually around 7 days. Glycolic acid peels are referred to as lunchtime peels.

    Facelift

    The “lyft” procedure is coined term that we are using to describe a procedure which removes excess fat and skin from the lower face, neck or both. Skin and musculature is tightened in the process. Repositioning of the skin allows our patients to achieve a more youthful appearance. Those who respond best have deep cheek folds and loose sagging skin around the neck. As we age, fat pads descend from the upper cheek and skin laxity becomes more prominent in the jowl regions of the face. Our lyft technique uses smaller incisions. These are hidden behind the ear folds and/or in the crease just under the chin. By minimizing incision length (and undermining), the procedure is safer and requires less downtime than that seen with a traditional facelift.
