Dermaplaning is a simple yet powerful tool used for skin rejuvenation that will give you smoother and even younger-looking skin. At Reflections Medical Spa in Cartersville, GA, we offer this skin smoothing treatment as a standalone treatment or alongside the Hydrafacial, a hydration-based treatment that improves skin hydration and helps you experience some noticeable skin brightening benefits.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an in-office skin rejuvenation treatment that physically exfoliates the skin and removes dead skin cells, fine hair, and build-up from the top layer of the skin. In doing so, it enables the skin to better absorb topical products so that those products work better, which will naturally improve skin hydration. Hydration is important for the skin because it helps you achieve and maintain brighter-looking skin.

A Skin Resurfacing and Skin Smoothing Treatment

One of the benefits of this treatment is that it is an exfoliating treatment, but it’s also a skin smoothing and skin resurfacing treatment that helps patients achieve smoother skin. If you suffer from textural irregularities, acne, fine lines, wrinkles, or other skin imperfections, this simple treatment can help perfect your complexion.

A Skin Renewal and Skin Rejuvenation Treatment

Another benefit of this treatment is that it delivers skin brightening benefits. If your skin feels dull and lifeless, a dermaplaning treatment can change everything. It will help your skin look and feel renewed and rejuvenated because the dead skin cell barrier will no longer hide your natural glow.

How Does It Work?

Dermaplaning is a very simple treatment. During the treatment process, your technician will use a sterile, stainless steel, medical-grade scalpel. Once your skin is clean, dry, and ready for the treatment process, your technician will hold the scalpel at a 45°. She’ll use gentle, scraping motions to remove the dead skin cell barrier and fine hair from your skin’s surface. You’ll be left with skin that looks immediately smoother, younger, and healthier.

A Safe and Effective Treatment

The treatment doesn’t involve any chemicals or invasive techniques. You won’t get cut by the scalpel or experience any scarring because your technician will use skill and precision while holding the blade at a 45° angle so that it can adequately remove the dead skin cell layer without harming, cutting, or inflaming your skin. The process is quick, painless, and an incredibly effective form of physical exfoliation.

Customizing Your Skin Brightening Treatment

Dermaplaning can be scheduled as a standalone treatment or in combination with other skincare treatments to enhance the results. Because this treatment removes the top layer of skin and opens up the pores, when you pair it with other skincare treatments, it enables those treatments to work that much better. As a result, you’ll get all the benefits of this exfoliating treatment plus enhanced results from any treatment you combine it with.

Dermaplaning and the Hydrafacial: The Combination for Smoother Skin

The Hydrafaical is a powerful skincare treatment that can help you uncover your best skin after one 30-minute treatment. This facial focuses on deep cleansing, gentle yet effective exfoliation, extractions, and total skin hydration. This treatment also delivers skin resurfacing benefits and helps you achieve a beautiful glow and total skin renewal.

How It Works

The three-step treatment uses patented vortex technology to transform the skin. The first step involves deep cleansing to remove build-up from the skin’s surface. Then, after the top layer is removed, the device will extract impurities from the pores and then flush them with cleansing fluids to deliver deep cleansing. Your technician will implement dermaplaning into your treatment to enhance the results by opening up the pores and exposing a healthier, younger layer of skin.

Finally, during the third and final step of the Hydrafacial, specialized serums specifically formulated for your skin’s unique needs will be applied to help enhance skin hydration. Even though this treatment delivers incredible results, you can take those results to the next level by adding a dermaplaning treatment to your Hydrafacial. The extra exfoliation will help give your skin a natural glow, giving you a beautiful glowing complexion that even your favorite highlighter can’t compete with.

Am I a Candidate?

One of the benefits of dermaplaning is that almost everyone is a candidate. Additionally, most patients qualify as candidates for the Hydrafacial. So whether you want to schedule one or both of these skin-perfecting treatments, you are most likely an excellent candidate. Dermaplaning is a simple treatment that will help you achieve smoother skin, and the good news is that it doesn’t require harsh chemicals or invasive measures or techniques to exfoliate the skin.

As a result, patients with all different skin types can safely undergo treatment without experiencing adverse reactions, including those with sensitive skin. Additionally, pregnant and nursing women who are typically excluded from most skincare treatments qualify as candidates for dermaplaning. Likewise, since the Hydrafacial is completely customizable and safe for all skin types, most patients can schedule dermaplaning and the Hyrdafacial together.

Combining this skin brightening, skin smoothing, and skin rejuvenation exfoliating treatment with the Hydrafacial will help you achieve smoother skin that has a natural glow.
