We all age. And with that aging comes skin that tells our secrets to the world. It gives away our age and even some of our past activities. And if you are like most of us, you would like to keep those secrets to yourself. You don’t want the whole world knowing how much time you spent in the sun and that you did not use any form of protection from its harmful rays. However, you may be left looking in the mirror at wrinkles, dark spots, fine lines and dry skin. Dermaplaning is a great solution to this problem and can bring back your youthful appearance. At Ovation Med Spa in Houston, we can offer you simple, quick dermaplaning treatments.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that gently exfoliates the outer layer of dead skin cells and removes the fine facial hair. Essentially, we use a special tool in a scraping motion along the skin surface to do this, leaving your skin with a more radiant and fresher appearance. The skin is smoother, and it allows for skin care products to penetrate more deeply, making them more effective. For added effectiveness, another treatment can be added at the patient’s request during the treatment session. This added step allows the process to go deeper into the dermis, which allows for even more refreshed and radiant skin.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Dermaplaning is designed to help with rough, dry, and aging skin. However, it can also help with the appearance of scars, and the fine lines and wrinkles that are associated with aging. It may not be ideal for those in Houston with oily skin or active acne.
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
If the dermaplaning is performed by a trained aesthetician like those at our med spa in Houston, it is completely safe and harmless. The risk to your skin is about the same as shaving, and there is no downtime at all.
How Long Does It Take?
Dermaplaning typically takes just minutes to complete. Patients are commonly known to come in for their treatment at a time that is scheduled around their other daily activities.
