DERMAPLANING x MICRONEEDLING
Dermaplaning & Microneedling: an optimal combo treatment
Dermaplaning and Microneedling are effective stand alone treatments. But combined they can produce optimal results. Dermaplaning is a safe and simple skin rejuvenation treatment intended to exfoliate the epidermis and remove vellus hair (peach fuzz), dirt, dead skin and impurities from the outermost layers of your skin. It leaves the skin smoother and looking healthier. This exfoliation allows a deeper penetration of in treatment & home care products.
Microneedling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, is a medical cosmetic procedure involving very fine needles that puncture the skin in various depths to cause a controlled injury, which induces the skin to produce more collagen, elastin and growth factors, resulting in a clearer complexion.
Combining these two treatments will give you the most desirable outcome. Together these procedures are ideal to treat uneven skin tone and texture, large pores, fine lines, unwanted facial hair, and acne scars. Dermaplaning before Micro-needling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin layers, allowing the patient to achieve the most desirable outcome.
WHY BOTH TREATMENTS?
Dermaplaning for healthy & radiant skin!
Microneedling to turn back the hands of time!
IS IT PAINFUL?
We apply numbing cream before starting the microneedling portion of the treatment. Making it painless!
WILL MY HAIR GROW BACK THICKER?
It is physiologically impossible for your vellus hair to grow back thicker.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE NEEDED?
For the best outcome we recommend a minimum of 3 sessions, spaced 6 weeks apart. The results will be most noticeable 1-2 months after the last session as it takes 8 weeks for collagen to reproduce.
HOW CAN I PREP FOR THE TREATMENT?
Before coming to the appointment make sure that you are not taking any medications that cause photosensitivity and stop using Retinol products for 2 weeks prior to the treatment. In the case of Accutane, you must discontinue for 6 months.
Please arrive at the appointment with clean skin, free from makeup, lotion, powder, etc.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
For the first 24 hours, your skin may feel sunburnt and appear quite red. No makeup can be used on the skin, with the exception of Oxygenetix Foundation. You will be sent home with a post treatment kit that includes specific products to promote wound healing, collagen, and hydration.
