Micro needling is a method that some dermatologist use to treat different skin conditions. The technique involves using multiple tiny, sterile needles to puncture the skin and cause physical trauma. This trauma prompts the derma, a deeper layer of skin, to rebuild. Micro needling may help address many skin-related complaints, including:
- Skin pigmentation issues
- Stretch marks
- Loose skin, such as after weight loss or liposuction
It may also help rejuvenate the skin.
In addition, professionals can use micro needling to deposit medication, such as topical tretinoin or vitamin C, deeper into the skin. This can boost the treatment of a variety of issues, including acne scarring.
Micro needling increases the production of collagen and other healing factors by causing trauma to the skin. Collagen is an essential protein that helps keep the skin looking youthful, with a firm, smooth, and stretchy texture. Aging causes the decline of collagen in the skin, contributing to wrinkles and other signs of aging. Skin can also lose collagen due to injuries, such as acne scarring, stretch marks, or other scars. It is important to realize that microneedling is not a quick fix, as it involves the growth of new skin.
Microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure used to renew overall skin tone and texture. It can improve the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines, age spots, acne scarring, melasma, and other skin-related concerns and conditions. The procedure uses a special applicator with an abrasive surface to gently sand away the thick outer layer of the skin to rejuvenate it. A different microdermabrasion technique sprays fine particles of aluminum oxide or sodium bicarbonate with a vacuum/suction to accomplish the same outcome as the abrasive surface. Microdermabrasion is considered a safe procedure for most skin types and colours.
People might choose to get the procedure if they have the following skin concerns:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation, age spots and brown spots
- Enlarged pores and blackheads
- Acne and acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Dull-looking skin complexion
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sun damage
Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical, minimally invasive procedure. There’s very little you need to do to prepare for it. It a good idea to discuss your skin concerns by having a consultation to find out if microdermabrasion is the right fit for you. Discuss any past cosmetic procedures and surgeries, as well as allergies and medical conditions. You may be told to avoid sun exposure, tanning creams, and waxing for about a week before treatment. You may also be advised to stop using exfoliating creams and masks approximately three days prior to treatment. Remove any makeup and cleanse your face before the procedure begins. During your appointment, you’ll be seated in a reclining chair. Your provider will use a handheld device to gently spray on the particles or sand away the outer layer of skin in the targeted areas. At the end of the treatment, a moisturizer as well as sunscreen will be applied to your skin.
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
- Dry skin
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine wrinkles
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven. Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror. Your provider will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as your provider gently works to exfoliate the skin. After the treatment is finished, your provider will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face. You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.
Deep Cleansing Facial
Deep Cleansing Facial is a dermatological type of facial treatment involving an intensely deep cleanse of the face that purifies the skin. This treatment is the best solution to achieve a clear, radiant complexion. Performed by professional experienced therapists, our deep pore cleansing facial utilizes extraction medical skin care to remove all your skin’s impurities. Immediately after the deep cleansing facial, your skin will look fresh, moisturized and will have a beautiful glow. Deeply cleansing the skin helps improve the appearance, texture, and tone of the skin. It also provides a solution to problem skin types including acne-prone skin. The deep cleansing facial treatment is completely bespoke for each patient. You can see the results immediately after your session and in the weeks following the treatment. For best results, we generally recommend having 2-3 treatments set at one-month intervals to allow for healthy cell renewal. When pores become clogged with sebum or dirt, bacteria are likely to grow and cause acne. Regular exfoliation and extraction of pore-clogging sebum with antibacterial ingredients will prevent acne breakouts and help control acne without irritation. Deep cleansing facials are a classic type of facial, typically involving cleansing, steam, facial massage, facial mask, serum and moisturizer. Our therapists will perform extractions, removing blackheads and whiteheads.
