Over our lifetime, the skin’s surface tells the story of our lives, manifesting itself in every scar, sun spot, and blemish. We may also notice the presence of fine, peach fuzz called vellus hair, cropping up on our chin and lower facial areas. The benefits of dermaplaning and microdermabrasion can effectively improve your skin’s overall appearance as quickly as the first treatment. The benefits of these exfoliation treatments are numerous and far-reaching, being used and enjoyed by more and more people each year.
If facial peach fuzz is making you self-conscious, a non-invasive procedure called dermaplaning can rid your chin and cheeks of the vellus hair, resulting in a smoother complexion. As well as looking unsightly, vellus hair can cause excess dirt and oils to accumulate in the hair follicles. The painless dermaplaning process begins with exfoliating the epidermis by gently scraping and ridding the skin of the fine hair, dead skin cells and dirt, leaving the skin feeling smooth. It allows for greater penetration of skin care products, and allows makeup to glide onto your face with ease.
Microdermabrasion is an in-depth extraction, micro-exfoliation, and serum application treatment. After this initial scrubbing process, it is concluded with the administration of a moisturizer or prescription medicine to help balance the skin. The technique rids the skin of impurities, sloughs off dead skin cells, diminishes age spots and discoloration, and rejuvenates the skin. The benefits of microdermabrasion are vast, as the process can treat numerous problems at once. For example, the DiamondTome™ Microdermabrasion treatment offered at the Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute can reduce acne scars, age spots, aging lines, hyperpigmentation, and sun-damaged skin, as well as extract blackheads and whiteheads, and rejuvenate overall skin health.
Not only can microdermabrasion reinvigorate and revitalize your skin, but it is a gentle, non-invasive and very quick treatment with little to no downtime. People of all ages can benefit from microdermabrasion, as it can be used to treat all sorts of dermatological problems, from acne to anti-aging.
