While there are several treatments available to exfoliate and improve the skin, dermaplaning at Rejuvenate Med Spa can provide subtle enhancement to your skin using your body’s own natural healing mechanisms, with no healing or downtime.
Rejuvenate Med Spa is located in Oak Brook, Illinois. Contact us today to schedule a consultation with our medical team and find out how dermaplaning can help improve your superficial skin concerns.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning has been used for several years to provide comfortable resurfacing and exfoliation of the skin, and is commonly sought by men and women as an alternative to more abrasive or chemical-based skin resurfacing treatments.
During dermaplaning treatment, our medical team uses a sterile medical scalpel and gently abrades the surface with light, feathering strokes. This procedure is typically painless, and the experienced touch of our medical team will leave your skin feeling refreshed and opened up.
In addition to removing the vellus hair, or peach fuzz, covering the surface of the facial skin, dermaplaning also allows the skin to breathe and increases its ability to absorb skincare products and treatments.
Why Choose Dermaplaning?
For women who are pregnant, dermaplaning can be a safer alternative to chemical-based skin treatments. Dermaplaning can also be effective for individuals who have excess vellus hair, which can lead to a buildup of dirt and oils in the hair follicles. The shaving of this hair can help maintain overall skin health as well as stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, adding strength and flexibility to treated areas.
While other skin treatments only provide temporary results, dermaplaning utilizes the body’s natural healing process to provide subtle, natural improvement over time.
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
This quick, simple treatment is safe for all skin types and does not have the scarring or infection that can be associated with other, more abrasive skin rejuvenation treatments. During your consultation with our medical team, your individual skin condition as well as your cosmetic goals and expectations will be assessed in order to determine if dermaplaning is the best course of treatment for you.
Although it is commonly thought that shaved vellus hair will grow back darker and more coarse, this is not the case in most patients, as superficial vellus hair will most likely grow back at the same rate and color.
