If skin treatments such as facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you want, but you are not interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, than dermaplaning might be the right treatment for you. Dermaplaning is an innovative cosmetic procedure and facial treatment that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a surgical scalpel and careful scraping techniques. Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa is proud to offer dermaplaning skin treatments for individuals in the Fleming Island and Jacksonville, FL areas. Dermaplaning is popular these days because it is minimally invasive and able to provide younger-looking, smoother skin successfully.
"My husband surprised me with an appointment this morning for my birthday! He scheduled me for Derma-planing and a Hydra-facial! Melissa did an amazing job on both!! She was so informative and professional!! Loved the fact that she took pictures of my face to get to the deeper issues with my skin!! It’s fascinating how much you can’t see in the mirror, that’s going on underneath the surface!! I will most definitely be back!! ??????"- A.F. / Facebook / Mar 15, 2019
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective solution for many skin types. By removing fine facial hair, dermaplaning can keep dirt and oil from penetrating into the skin. This can then result in the appearance of smaller pores and overall healthier, more even skin. Individuals suffering from severe acne may not be suited for this procedure. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Don't have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Don't have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplaning is performed by our medical aestheticians. Your skin will be cleaned and the procedure will begin with a careful skimming of the skin's surface with a blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the needed areas have been evenly treated. As the blade is skimmed across the top layer of the skin, it is removing dead skin and fine facial hair. The treatment time will vary depending on whether a small portion or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, the entire treatment process of dermaplaning will be explained to you.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, you can expect your face to be slightly red. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun, because the skin will be sensitive following your treatment. You can expect results to be noticeable immediately following your treatment since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin right away. To help you care for your rejuvenated skin, the technician will outline an improved skin care regimen with you, including the regular application of sunscreen. In order to maintain your results, it is recommended to receive dermaplaning treatments about every four weeks.
