What is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning in Armonk

Some of the sought after regenerating procedures that increase the rate of cell turnover and maximize the power of serums are treatments like dermaplaning and dermarolling (microneedling).

Dermaplaning uses a scalpel or surgical blade to delicately remove the outermost layers of hair and dead skin, derma-rolling (also known as skin needling) employs a small, manually operated roller to puncture minuscule holes into the top layer of skin. These two procedures will cause a noticeable textural improvement without downtime, and clients will appreciate the instant gratification. Vellus hair—the fine, blonde fuzz on the face—causes dirt and oil to collect in the follicles, so removing it gives the patient healthier looking skin, explains. We remove the epidermal skin and allow products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. We often recommend dermaplaning before medical procedures like laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It helps prepare the skin and will result in a more refined and glowing appearance. In addition dermaplaning, will smooth fine lines and wrinkles, and even skin tone. Treatments are generally recommended approximately every four weeks to accommodate the normal skin-growth cycle.

Ask your aesthetician or our physician to create a schedule of treatments base on your own needs. Often combinations between these procedures and the use of appropriate skin care lines will produce the best results.
