If you suffer from dull skin, you are not alone. Environmental factors, like the sun, can cause our skin to age prematurely, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tones. At Allure Enhancement Center, located in Lafayette, LA, we offer dermaplaning facial and other treatment options to fight off dullness and give you a more youthful appearance.
Exfoliating with dermaplaning is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that aids in the reduction of acne scars, blemishes, dullness, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles. It can also enhance your skin’s brightness by removing unwanted peach fuzz. If you are looking for a treatment that is easy and effective with no downtime, demaplaning may be right for you.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning treatments have many benefits. It is a popular treatment for those looking for smoother skin without invasive treatments or abrasive chemicals. These exfoliating treatments help with dullness, blemishes and bothersome peach fuzz.
Brighter, Smoother Skin
As time goes by, our skin holds on to excess oils, premature aging signs, and dead skin cells that cause blockages and fine lines. By exfoliating the top layers of skin, you will start with a fresh layer of healthier, smoother skin. Once dead skin cells are removed, you are left with a younger, healthier complexion.
Dullness, brought about by sun damage and environmental factors, can make us look older than we are. Dermaplaning facial can erase those dull signs and give your skin a brighter glow.
Remove Unwanted Peach Fuzz
Peach fuzz, although natural to our faces, can sometimes grow in excess and become an unwanted distraction. Peach fuzz often appears on our face in pictures. It can catch the light and draw attention to itself. It can also ruin makeup routines by providing an uneven base to work with.
Peach fuzz can result in clogged pores, leading to breakouts and blemishes. Oil and dirt often buildup around peach fuzz follicles causing unsightly and uneven blemishes and skin texture.
By removing peach fuzz on a regular basis, our skin is able to breathe more. This helps our skin appear much smoother. It also gives specialized skincare products a better chance to sink in to deeper skin layers and have greater results.
Bothersome peach fuzz commonly shows up along our jawline or around cheekbones. Removing the unwanted peach fuzz is harmless and an easy way to brighten skin and improve texture.
Safe, Effective and Comfortable Treatments
Dermaplaning is safe and effective for almost all skin types. These treatments are easy and quickly performed in our office. The device used by our knowledgeable and trained team members glides over your skin at a 45-degree angle while you are comfortably lying down in one of our specialized chairs. It doesn’t require any harsh chemicals or abrasive tools. It simply removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz, leaving your skin fresh and rejuvenated.
Non-Invasive and Non-Surgical
One major benefit to these treatments, and a top reason why they are so popular, is that the treatments are non-invasive and non-surgical. You don’t have to worry about long recovery times that require extensive healing, or invasive treatments that carry more risk.
Our exfoliating treatments are easy and safe. There is no need for you to stay at home to recover since there is no downtime required. Treatments can even be performed on your lunch break, allowing you to carry on with your day as you had planned. There is nothing easier than improving the appearance of our skin without having to worry about downtime. Our schedules are as busy as ever, and seeking safe, effective treatments that work within our hectic lives is a key component as to why dermaplaning facial is so popular.
What Can I Expect From Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment that exfoliates the top layers of your skin. This safe treatment can be compared to shaving. During your treatment, one of our highly trained team members will use a device containing a blade to gently skim your face. This process removes dead skin cells, peach fuzz, scar tissues, and other things like dirt and oil, from your skin.
The process of exfoliating leaves your skin feeling fresh and looking much healthier. By removing the peach fuzz, you will notice immediate results, and over time, as your body produces more collagen in response to the treatment, you will continue to notice improvements in your skin’s overall texture and smoothness.
Boosting collagen and elastin production in our bodies gives our skin a more youthful appearance. Collagen helps reduce sun damage, acne scars, and dullness. Collagen is a protein found naturally in bodies. It’s the glue that keeps our skin healthy and firm. This is why treatments that rely on collagen production see great results! We are naturally improving our skin’s texture by boosting something our bodies are already making.
How Should I Take Care of My Skin After Dermaplaning?
Since there is no downtime needed, after your treatment you are fine to continue your day as you normally would. You may want to consider special creams or serums that can help in rejuvenating the newer, healthier skin. It will be important to stay out of the sun immediately after the treatment.
Having the right expectations are important. When you meet with our trained professionals during your initial consultation, we will discuss your skincare goals and all the specifics of each treatment option.
After your treatments, it’s important to remember that peach fuzz will grow back after a few weeks, so you will most likely want additional treatments or to have an ongoing treatment plan. You may continue to use any skincare products you have.
Living a healthy lifestyle before and after treatments is key to achieving the best results. This includes having a positive attitude, eating healthy and wearing sunscreen on a daily basis.
Damage from the sun is one of the biggest factors in pre-mature aging and dull skin. The sun can wreak havoc on your skin’s brightness and smoothness, causing dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Wearing sunscreen daily will help fight off the sun’s harmful rays and keep your skin looking its best.
You should always drink plenty of water before and after any treatments you have to help your skin achieve its best results. Having hydrated skin helps in the healing process and gives skin a more youthful appearance.
After exfoliating treatments, your skin will be in an optimum state to accept specialized anti-aging skincare products. New skin allows products to reach deep layers of your skin, causing maximum benefit. After treatments may be the right time to add special creams, serums or moisturizers to your skincare regime.
It may also be a good idea to followup dermaplaning facial treatments with other treatment options. During your consultation, we can go over other services available to discuss what might work best for you in achieving your skincare goals. Some of the additional treatments we offer are:
- HydraFacial and dermalinfusion
- Chemical peels
Are You a Good Candidate?
Our exfoliating treatments are non-invasive and non-surgical, which makes them great for anyone looking to rejuvenate their skin in a way that won’t require long downtimes or harsh, abrasive chemicals.
As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen, resulting in fine lines and wrinkles. By boosting our skin’s production of collagen, we can benefit from these treatments no matter what age we are.
You will most likely be a good candidate if you are looking to improve your skin from the following:
- Excessive peach fuzz
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
During your initial consultation with our team members, we will help you decide if these treatments are the best option for you and your skin.
Who Benefits From This Treatment?
Those who live a healthy lifestyle and have positive and realistic expectations will benefit the most from these treatments. It’s important to take care of our skin whether or not we are having treatments performed.
Many people will see instant results in their skin’s overall smoothness with the removal of peach fuzz, but over time, as your body produces more collagen, you will notice subtle enhancements.
Exfoliating treatments are great for all skin types and all ages. They are also great for both men and women. Our office can help men who need a refresh in their skin’s health. By removing dead skin cells, we can help your skin breathe and expose new skin below, helping with acne scars, dry or dull skin.
When Should I Receive Treatments?
Since there is no recovery or downtime, treatments can be done at any time. These are not abrasive treatments, and the exfoliation only removes dead cells and peach fuzz. The main healing and rejuvenation of your skin comes from the boost in collagen that your body will naturally create.
Many people like to start a skincare exfoliating treatment well in advance of any special events or vacations. This gives your skin time to rejuvenate and for collagen production to take place before your planned activities.
How Many Treatments Should I Have?
Most likely you will want more than one treatment, but this depends on your skin and your goals. Peach fuzz typically grows back after a few weeks. To achieve the best results from exfoliating treatments, you should continue to do them on a regular schedule. During your initial consultation, a member of our staff will go over a treatment schedule with you and discuss all your options.
What to Consider Before a Treatment?
You should plan to avoid the sun immediately after a treatment. Make sure you are living your best, healthy lifestyle by drinking lots of water and wearing sunscreen on a daily basis.
The treatments are easy and quick and can be done in the middle of the day. You can return to work or your normal daily routine after the treatments.
