Want to enhance your normal chemical peel treatment to achieve a greater anti-aging effect? Combining your chemical peel with dermaplaning can result in skin improvements you would never see with chemical peels alone. The chemical peel is absorbed deep into the skin and can provide unmatched cleansing and hydration without being limited by the skin’s natural absorption. At Tarola Plastic Surgery in Murfreesboro, TN, we specialize in both of these treatments and can combine them to provide you with a unique facial experience.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive and non-surgical treatment that exfoliates the skin by removing dead and damaged skin cells. The treatment is also one of the best methods for removing tiny hairs from your skin that make your complexion look dull and rough. The treatment is conducted by a trained nurse or dermatologist using a surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin from the face. After your treatment session, your skin will be flawless and smooth with a radiant glow.
Can You Get a Chemical Peel After a Dermaplane Session?
A dermaplane session can give you smooth and exfoliated skin, but the benefits do not end with skin exfoliation. A chemical peel after your dermaplane session can provide hydration and cleansing to replenish the skin. A chemical peel is a treatment using natural acids like salicylic acid to remove dead skin cells, toxins, and oils from the skin. Chemical peels come in light, medium, and deep peels to provide various levels of treatment. While a deep chemical peel can provide you with exfoliation and cleansing beyond the skin’s surface, it is not equal to the physical exfoliation from dermaplaning.
The reason that a chemical peel is a perfect partner to a dermaplane treatment is that the physical exfoliation prepares your skin to soak up and enjoy the maximum benefits of the peel. This will give you the deepest cleansing possible, and since the dermaplane session removes tiny hairs from the face, there is nothing to dull your complexion.
What Can the Combined Treatments Do for Your Skin?
A normal chemical peel session will stimulate collagen production, rebuilding your skin and improving the elasticity of the skin. The collagen reduces the appearance of scars and makes the skin firm and smooth. The tone, color, and texture of the skin can be improved. Discoloration and dark spots can also be eliminated. Enlarged pores and clogged pores can be cleansed and cleared of oil and debris, reducing your risk of acne and infection. Chemical peels can also improve skin hydration and improve damaged skin.
When you prepare the skin with an exfoliating dermaplane session, you allow the chemical peel to work uninhibited. The skin will receive optimal benefits of the chemical peel with a multiplied efficiency.
Better Makeup and Skincare Product Absorption
Dermaplaning is not only a great treatment when combined with chemical peels, but it can also work well with other facial treatments. A traditional facial can be combined with a dermaplane session to enhance the hydration benefits of the facial, resulting in smoother and healthier skin. Your skincare products such as moisturizers and toners will also be better absorbed by the skin after a dermaplane session. With no tiny hairs to interfere in your makeup application, your smooth complexion makes it easy to blend and apply makeup. Your session can even be combined with a BOTOX treatment to reduce moderate lines and wrinkles if there is adequate time between sessions.
How Long Will the Results Last?
A dermaplane session takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Combined with a 30- to 60-minute chemical peel, the entire process takes less than two hours. There is no downtime after the treatment, and you can remain active at home or at work while you recover. The results of the treatment are immediately noticeable, but your new skin may be sensitive.
A chemical peel after your dermaplane session will provide you with clean and radiant skin, but it will not last forever. You can expect your complexion to remain smooth and youthful for close to four weeks. This means that the treatment is best performed as part of your monthly skincare routine. Monthly treatment sessions can keep your skin looking continuously youthful. Each time your skin begins to become dull, you can unveil fresh and glowing skin with a dermaplane session. For the best and longest-lasting results, avoid prolonged sun exposure and wear proper sun protection.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
You can enjoy great results from this combination of treatments regardless of age, gender, or skin type. If you have an active infection or acne breakout, you may need to postpone your dermaplane session, as the scalpel may irritate the infected area. Chemical peels may not be recommended if you are pregnant or nursing, but the dermaplane session may still be performed alone. The treatment will not result in downtime, but it is best to plan for your session to allow for a week or so to see final results before you have a big event.
