Glow Envy Med Spa Favorite Services: Dermaplaning
Updated: Mar 22
Want to learn more about dermaplaning? Well you are in luck my friend! I'm going to go over what dermaplaning is, what it helps with, why you should add it to your skincare journey, and when not to use dermaplaning.
There are tons of fabulous facial services out there and each one is unique. There are treatments for acne, pigment, texture, laxity, fine lines and wrinkle, pigment...the list goes on. It can be a little overwhelming figuring out which service is best for you. Your best bet would be to schedule a consultation and talk about your concerns with your esthetician or skin care provider. At Glow Envy Med Spa, we encourage all of our clients to start their skincare journey with a consultation, to arm them with a plan of action to tackle any concerns they are having. Everyone is different, so your skincare regimen should be tailored to your specific needs.
Because there are so many options out there, we want to break them down and give you all the details about our favorite services here at the spa. This month our skincare service of the month is dermaplaning.
What is Dermaplaning and what does it help with?
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that is performed using a surgical steel blade. It is performed monthly to remove dead skin cells, debris, and vellus hair (peach fuzz). When you remove the built-up skin cells and vellus hair you have a much brighter complexion. This service leaves your skin feeling smooth and supple. If bright, smooth, and supple skin is what you are going for, this treatment is for you! At Glow Envy Med Spa, we offer dermaplaning as an add-on to other treatments or as a stand-alone treatment.
Why should you do a dermaplaning treatment?
You know how when you go get a facial and afterward you feel completely amazing? Well now imagine that you added dermaplaning to that facial and all of your dead skin cells and peach fuzz are removed, leaving fresh, supple skin to lather all of those good products onto. Yeah, it's that good! Bonus...the dermaplaning helps your skincare products, makeup, and treatments penetrate deeper. Dermaplaning pairs well with treatments such as chemical peels, Hydrafacials, and Microneedling! It is also great as a standalone service. Our standalone dermaplaning service includes double cleanse, toning treatment, enzyme mask, vitamin c serum, moisturizer, and spf in addition to the dermaplaning. It's so good!
When should you not do dermaplaning?
Even though a service is amazing, doesn't mean that it is always a good fit for you. All the more reason to consult with a professional before scheduling any service. They can go over issues you are having, your medical history, determine if there are contraindications to the service you are interested in, etc. Contraindications for dermaplaning include: open lesions, sunburns, active acne, blood thinners, or use of accutane. If you are experiencing any of these issues, definitely let your provider know and they can help you determine a service that will be a better fit for where you are at.
