If your skin looks dull, or if you’d like to improve the texture, reduce fine lines or help diminish acne scars, Dermaplaning may be the answer for you. At Rejuvenate Med Spa, located in Oak Brook, Illinois, we have an array of options to meet all your skin care concerns and help you obtain a more youthful, brighter appearance.
What Are the Advantages of Dermaplaning?
Our exfoliating treatments are so popular because they offer many benefits. These easy and safe treatments are a great option for anyone looking to improve their skin’s appearance in a non-noninvasive way without harsh or abrasive chemicals or treatments.
Improve Overall Skin Tone
By removing the top layers of skin that hold on to excess oil and suffer from blockages, dull skin and premature aging signs, we can reveal newer, younger skin. Your body responds to dermaplaning by using its own natural resources to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
The results give you a rejuvenated feel and texture. After the treatments, you will leave with a more even skin tone. The exfoliating treatments help with blemishes, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
Eliminate Peach Fuzz and Excess Hair
During the treatment, the vellus hair, which is commonly referred to as peach fuzz, will be removed. Peach fuzz naturally occurs all over our face, but some of us have more than others, which can show up more with certain types of light or get in the way of makeup and foundation.
This peach fuzz oftentimes causes oils to build up on our face, which may lead to breakouts and blemishes. The buildup of dirt and environmental factors in the hair follicles can lead to dull skin.
When the peach fuzz is removed, the skin is able to breathe more. It also provides a new surface that absorbs products more easily and sinks deeper into the skin’s surface, providing better results.
By exfoliating the skin, the body produces more collagen. Stimulating collagen and elastin production gives skin a more youthful appearance. Collagen is a natural protein found in our skin. Its ability to firm and tone skin is what makes it one of the best ways to naturally improve our skin health.
Safe for All Skin Types
Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types. Even if you are pregnant, dermaplaning is still possible. This is a great alternative to using harsh chemicals or going through treatments that may require a longer healing time.
Non-Invasive and Non-surgical
One major benefit to these treatments is that they are non-invasive and non-surgical. They are easily performed in our office on a convenient schedule and at a time that works for you.
Since these treatments are easy to perform and non-invasive, there is no downtime. There is no long healing or recovery needed, and you are able to go back to work or carry on with your normal activities once the treatment is complete. You can even have it done over your lunch break. These treatments are easy and safe and don’t require you to stay home and recover.
What Is Dermaplaning?
During a treatment, a trained member of our team will use a safe, sterile medical scalpel to exfoliate your skin. They gently abrade the skin’s surface with light strokes. The feathering of the strokes removes unwanted hair and exfoliates your skin, leaving it soft and more youthful.
You may notice immediate results, but you will also see improvement over time as the collagen production is stimulated to create a smoother skin surface.
If you have lots of peach fuzz that is bothersome to you, you will notice an immediate improvement since that hair is removed during the treatment. Peach fuzz that catches the light and is visible along your cheeks and jawline will be removed. Many people find this also helps with breakouts. Since the hair is gone, oils and dirt can no longer get trapped in the peach fuzz.
Will Peach Fuzz Grow Back Darker?
This is a popular myth, but we have found it to be untrue. It is a common thought that the peach hair removed with the device will come back more coarse or darker. However, with most people, the peach fuzz simply comes back the same texture, color, and at the same rate.
The peach hair, although it is naturally occurring on most people, is completely superficial and doesn’t serve any purpose to having healthy, youthful skin. It will grow back over time but usually it grows back looking the same as it did before it was removed.
Why Is Dermaplaning So Popular?
These treatments have been performed more and more over the last several years because they are a safe and effective exfoliating treatment. Since there is no downtime and no long recovery or healing time, people find they are a great alternative to harsh chemicals or more invasive treatments.
Dermaplaning is so popular because it gets results. The body’s natural production of collagen gives you a natural way to improve your skin’s appearance, texture and smoothness. This results in more youthful, brighter and smoother skin.
Another reason it’s so popular is that it helps in reducing fine lines and wrinkles that are brought about by aging and environmental factors. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen. This, in combination with too much sun, stress or other environmental factors, can cause our skin to sag, which creates fine lines and wrinkles.
As collagen production is boosted by exfoliating treatments, it gives our skin a chance to rejuvenate. Newer skin is revealed and the signs of aging are reversed.
Are You a Good Candidate?
These treatments work well for all skin types. Since they are non-invasive and don’t require harsh chemicals, almost anyone can receive them.
It is always important to be in good health anytime you receive a facial or treatment. Using sunscreen is an important factor when you have these treatments, as the sun is one of the greatest contributors to premature aging and skin dullness. The sun can also cause dark spots and uneven skin tone. Protecting your skin from the sun will always get you better results.
Living a healthy lifestyle will help you achieve the best results you can for your skincare goals. Eating healthy and drinking plenty of water on a daily basis, before and after your treatments, will also help your skin rejuvenate and look its best.
During your initial consultation with our team members, we will help you decide if these treatments are the best option for you and your skin.
Who Benefits From This Treatment?
Anyone with the following can benefit from these treatments:
- Excess peach fuzz
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Dull skin
Both men and women can benefit. These facial treatments are not just for women. Many men suffer from the same effects from the sun and aging as women. Exfoliating is a great way to improve skin texture, and these treatments can help with the overall appearance of your skin and improve your skins’ health.
When Should You Receive Treatments?
These treatments can be done at any time. There is no recovery or downtime. Since your body will be producing more collagen on the freshly exfoliated skin, you will see benefits well past the initial time of the treatment. You will see immediate results because the peach fuzz will be gone, but you will see your best results over a period of time.
If you are planning to have treatments done for a special event or for vacation, you will want to plan accordingly. Make sure you schedule your initial consultation so you can have treatments and give your body a chance to produce collagen so you can see the best benefits in time for your special event.
You may also want to have more than one treatment. During your initial consultation, a member of our staff will go over a treatment schedule with you and discuss all your options.
Other Treatment Options
After you have a treatment and exfoliate the skin, you may want to consider using specialized skincare products to help your skin achieve its best potential. After exfoliating with dermaplaning, your fresh skin will absorb products better, and they will penetrate deeper levels of your skin. Because of this, it’s a great time to add anti-aging products to your daily regime.
Some of the products we offer are:
- Perfection serums
- Firming masks
- Calming creams
We also offer many other facials that may pair well with your treatments. During your initial consultation, we can go over all our services and treatments to help you determine the right treatment plan for your skin and your skincare goals. Some of the other facials and treatments we offer are:
- Laser services
- Chemical Peels
What to Consider Before a Treatment
Before you have a treatment, you will need to consider if you plan to be in the sun for a long period of time. We can discuss with you during your initial consultation when it’s a good idea to go in the sun.
We always recommend wearing sunscreen on a daily basis to help prevent sun damage. After exfoliating, your newer skin may be more sensitive to the sun. Having a healthy lifestyle and drinking plenty of water before your treatment will help you get the best results.
What Happens After a Treatment?
There is no downtime needed, so after a treatment you are fine to continue about your day. You may want to consider special creams or serums that can aid in rejuvenating your skin.
If you are looking to improve your overall skin health to get smoother and younger skin, you should consider dermaplaning, If you have bothersome peach fuzz that is visible in light or around your face, you could benefit from these treatments.
