When choosing an in-office treatment that attacks fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, or other skin issues that stem from the aging process, many people think they need something extreme or invasive to get results. At MD Age Management, conveniently located in Winter Park and Orlando, Florida, we went to let you in on a secret: you can change the condition of your skin for the better with a simple, non-invasive, and effective treatment known as dermaplaning.
How Often Should You Get Dermaplaning for Your Face?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that you can safely schedule monthly or more or less frequently based on your overall skincare needs and goals. It’s ok if you’re unsure how often you should schedule this exfoliating treatment. As always, our skincare experts will be happy to evaluate your skin and help develop a dermaplaning schedule so that you can reach your ultimate skin goals and maintain them once your skin gets where you want it to be.
Compared to other in-office skincare treatments, dermaplaning is one of the simpler ones. However, though it may be simple, this treatment has instant and powerful benefits that you’ll notice immediately following your appointment. You will continue to see these benefits since they will extend into the days and weeks following your treatment.
What Are the Benefits?
It’s Easier Than Doing It at Home
Choosing the right exfoliating treatment to use at home can be challenging since many can lead to inflammation, redness, irritation, and even acne. Others have rough, texturized pieces that irritate the skin, while others contain certain chemicals that should never be applied to the skin to begin with. When you choose this in-office exfoliating treatment, you can end your search for the right and most effective exfoliation treatment once and for all.
It Helps Control Acne
When the scalpel moves across your skin, it takes with it all of the debris and dirt that leads to clogged pores that can easily result in breakouts. Regular dermaplaning appointments allow for consistent exfoliation so that you can always stay one step ahead of the clogged pores that lead to acne and breakouts.
It Increases the Effectiveness of Your Products
The removal of dead skin from your face exposes a new, fresh layer of skin. When you apply your products to this new layer of skin they’re better able to absorb, penetrate, and affect your skin as their labels promise they will. You’ll be able to apply your serums, moisturizers, masks, face washes, and even sunscreen onto a clean canvas that’s ready to absorb all of the essential nutrients in those products. Your skin will change for the better as a result.
It Helps Your Make-Up Application Go Flawlessly
If you’ve ever tried to apply foundation onto un-exfoliated skin, you know the frustrations it can cause. When foundation combines with dead skin cells, it forms raised, texture-like pieces that are hard to remove once you’ve started your make-up. Following this treatment, you will have smooth skin, and as a bonus, you will get the flawless foundation application that you’ve always wanted.
It Can Be Combined With Other Treatments
While many people choose this as a stand-alone treatment, when combined with facials, this treatment increases their overall effectiveness. When you add this form of exfoliation onto your facial or other in-office skincare treatment, you’ll be able to open up your pores and remove the dead skin cells before the infusion of nutrients and hydration and all of the other beneficial aspects involved in your choice of treatment.
It Can Be Done as a Stand-Alone Treatment
You can choose to have this exfoliating treatment performed on its own, or you can add it onto a facial. Either way, you’ll see significant benefits from the exfoliating effect it has on the skin, as well as the removal of dead skin and fine hair. If you just want to come in for this treatment and nothing else, you can do so easily and still reap many benefits.
This treatment does not require preparation on your part, nor does it have any side effects, and it won’t leave you feeling the need to hide your face for several days before going back out in public. The main aftercare protocol on your part is to simply apply sunscreen following the treatment, which if you already have a skincare routine, this will be nothing new to add to your morning.
Can I Do It at Home?
This particular form of exfoliation is done in-office for a reason. Though you may see beauty bloggers or online publications touting at home dermaplaning tools, nothing is as effective or as safe as an actual in-office dermaplaning appointment. The estheticians who perform this treatment have been trained to do so, since it requires precision, technique, and skill. Attempting to perform this at home would not only be dangerous but could lead to facial cuts and scars.
Monthly dermaplaning appointments can take your skin from feeling dull and lifeless to feeling fresh and will give you a glow that everyone will notice. If you’re ready to throw away all of your at-home exfoliating products that could actually be making your skin worse and schedule a monthly treatment that will give you skin that gets noticed, don’t wait any longer. Call us today at MD Age Management in Winter Park and Orlando, Florida to schedule your appointment.
