Corrective Skin Care
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. An esthetician grade, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently "shave off' dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair of the face, leaving a very smooth surface. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones, and minor breakouts associated with congested pores. Dermaplaning can be an effective exfoliation method for clients that have couperose (tiny blood vessels near the
surface of the skin), sensitive skin or allergies that prevent the use of microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Due to the contours of the face, certain areas of the face (such as the eyelids and nose) are not treatable using this method.
Microdermabrasion is a cosmetic procedure used as a facial rejuvenation tool. A technician uses a machine to rapidly discharge super-fine crystals onto the skin's surface, removing the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum. The crystals are then vacuumed away. The treatment is not painful, and there is no recovery time.
Both microdermabrasion and dermaplaning will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed, healthy, and brand new! Each procedure is noninvasive, virtually painless, and requires little to no recovery time. When choosing a treatment method, take into consideration your specific skin type and your skin’s unique needs.
Microneedling is a treatment that is good for all ages and skin colors. Any part o the body can be treated for sun damage, pigmentation, acne scars, skin texture, hair loss and even stretch marks. It is fast, comfortable treatment with very little downtime and should be part of a healthy skincare process.
Microneedling is done with a small hand held device that makes tiny, controlled punctures called micro-wounds or channels. These channels trigger the bodies healing process to produce new collagen and elastin within the dermis, the lower layer of skin. Also, new capillaries are formed for improved blood supply. The creation of micro-wounds allow topical products to penetrate deeper into the skin than they normally would and this increased the skins ability to utilize the nutrients by up to 3,000 percent!
At Lash Factor Studio, we use the Skin Stylus®️ MicroSystem Professional Kit because it is the only instrument that has components that can be autoclaved for sterilization.
