Cell turnover is the process by which our skin produces a new skin cell. When a skin cell is born, it starts in the lower layers of the epidermis and travels to the top layer of skin over the course of its life. Once the cells gets to the top of your skin, they die and you shed them. The regeneration of new cells and shedding is what keeps dead cells from building up on the surface.
This is important because as we age, skin cell turnover slows down significantly. As babies, our cells regenerate every 2 weeks. However, by the time we get to 25, the rate slows to 30-35 days. This slow down is natural, however, there are many things we can do to help our bodies increase cell turnover – dermaplaning is one way and it is safe for all skin types.
How It Works
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation. A trained aesthetician will use a medical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of skin, which consists of dead skin cells. This process allows for a smoother and brighter complexion. This treatment has become a monthly necessity for many people in the fashion and entertainment industries. The results are right away, there is no down time and it takes less then 30 minutes. At Flawless we take a multi-treatment approach to nourishing the skin and dermaplaning is one way that we can help the body when it comes to regeneration. We recommend that you purchase a package of 3 or 6. Treatments are scheduled 4 weeks apart.
How To Prepare
It is important that you discontinue topical prescription medications 14 days before your treatment (like Retina-A, Differing, Trilumen). Please stop all tanning (spray and or sun) and keep the area being treated out of the sun at all times.
Advise your aesthetician you are taking any oral medications or trying to get pregnant.
What To Expect
On the day of your appointment, we will remove your make up and the aesthetician will gently clean your face. Our aesthetician will use a sharp razor to gently shave away the dead skin on your face. This will typically take about 30 minutes.
After the treatment, we will clean and dry the skin, apply NeoCutis Hyalis, and Elta MD Sunscreen. The area that was treated will glow and radiate. Make up can be applied after the treatment.
While your skin regenerates, we recommend that you wear a sunscreen like Elta MD everyday and incorporate a retinol & vitamin C into your skin regimen. If you have any questions, please call the Spa. You can request another copy of post care instructions at anytime.
