Exfoliative Treatments

Exfoliative Treatments

Your skin constantly sheds skin cells, and smooth skin cells push their way up to the surface. But, as you age, the rate your body sheds dull and dead skin cells starts to slow down. Exfoliate treatment removes dead skin cells, fro the surface of your skin. Exfoliation uses a chemical, granular substance, or an exfoliation tool.

Physical exfoliators work against the top layers of your skin to remove the dead and dulling surface cells by rubbing and sloughing. This treatment includes using crystals, micro-fine granules, and natural beads.

Chemical exfoliation dissolves the intercellular glue holding dead skin cells together. Chemical exfoliators penetrate deep into the skin and help skin that has deep congestion.

It is a good idea to exfoliate your skin. Dead skin cells often get trapped on the skin’s surface and build up. You now have clogged pores, dark spots, rough skin texture, more wrinkles, dullness, dryness, and so much more. Exfoliation sweeps away dead cells, and what is left is smoother, brighter, and more refined skin.

Medical Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical and minimally invasive skin resurfacing treatment used to renew skin tone and texture. Microdermabrasion improves the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scars, and melasma.

One procedure uses an applicator with n abrasive surface to gently sand away thick outer layers of skin to rejuvenate and renew it.

Another technique sprays fine specks of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a vacuum to suction off dead skin cells.

Microdermabrasion is a safe procedure for most skin types and the following concerns:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation, brown and age spots
  • Enlarged pores and blackheads
  • Acne and acne scars
  • Stretch marks
  • Dull skin
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Melasma
  • Sun Damage

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaninghelps your skin’s surface become smooth, radiant, and youthful. The treatment often removes deep scarring from acne and unseen pockmarks on your skin. It is also used to remove the short, soft hairs on your face, generally called “peach fuzz.”

The tool used in dermaplaning treatments looks a bit like a razor. The concept is almost like shaving. A sterile bald is aimed at a 45-degree angle and is slowly moved across your skin. Dead cells, scar tissues, and other debris are removed, and you are left with clear and less dull skin.

Rarely Is general anesthesia used in dermaplaning, but you can request a numbing spray or local anesthesia. Once you are relaxed, an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool is used to scrape your skin. The treatment lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes. After the treatment, your skin will be soothed with a healing substance like aloe. Wear sunscreen after your procedure.
