Dermaplaning is a painless exfoliating treatment that uses a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin cells and hairs from the face. This helps to stimulate new skin cell development and the result is extremely soft, exfoliated, brightened and glowing skin.
Dead skin cells left on the face can cause dullness, wrinkles, breakouts and more. Removal of these skin cells causes the skin to look brighter and more youthful. For aging skin, exfoliation of these dead skin cells helps to prevent wrinkles and can also help skincare products penetrate the skin better, allowing anti-aging skincare routines to become more effective. Finally, those with acne may find this treatment extremely helpful in controlling future breakouts, since dead skin cells can clog the skin and hair follicles, which causes breakouts.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive and painless procedure that is generally used to improve skin tone and texture, as well as improving the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation issues, fine lines, age spots, scarring, large pores, acne and other skin conditions. It also is highly effective in cleaning out clogged pores, reducing breakouts.
The procedure is conducted using a machine with a diamond-tipped, abrasive surface that gently exfoliates the outer layer of the skin, removing the surface layer of dry, dead skin cells.
The surface layer of the skin that microdermabrasion removes (known as the stratus corneum) prevents the majority of lotion or moisture put on the skin from passing through. Additionally, this layer is where fine lines and blemishes are. Removing this skin layer helps to remove and reduce these skin imperfections, allowing skincare products to penetrate the skin more effectively, and exposes the rejuvenated skin below. Studies conducted on this treatment have shown that repeated treatment at regular intervals can influence the way that future layers of skin grow, in addition to
removing deeper blemishes over time.
High frequency machines use high frequency electrodes to treat skin conditions. When these electrodes react with outside air, the electrical current infuses the skin with oxygen molecules. This feeling is the light tingling sensation that clients feel during the treatment. Utilizing these machines during facial treatments helps to stimulate cell renewal and improve the ability of skincare products to penetrate and absorb into the skin by gently warming the tissues of the skin. In addition to this warming effect, high frequency current causes immediate circulation to the skin of the face, firming and toning the skin.
Adding high frequency to a client's facial can help to shrink enlarged pores, reduce blackheads, reduce the appearance of fine lines + wrinkles, assist in the decongesting of puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles, increase production levels of collagen and elastin, rejuvenate the condition of the scalp and nourish hair follicles for healthier hair growth.
Using high frequency therapy creates a natural cleansing and antibacterial action that helps treat existing acne and prevents future breakouts. Clients with cystic acne will benefit greatly from the deep penetrating germicidal action that this therapy produces.
