Microdermabrasion vs Dermaplaning

Microdermabrasion and dermaplaning…. Both words that sound a little scary, especially if you haven’t had either of them done before. However, these two treatments are great ways to rejuvenate skin and get rid of dead skin cells (not to mention how much more popular they’ve become in recent years!). Here’s what you need to know about them:

Microdermabrasion

This is done by exfoliating your skin to remove the dead skin cells and works to smooth fine lines, wrinkles, pore size, and sun damage with a diamond tip wand. It’s a little hand held device that gently sands that top layer of skin. This is a non invasive technique that is a great alternative to chemical peels!

We recommend getting a microdermabrasion treatment done in a series (anywhere from 4 to 6 treatments) to ensure you get the best results. From there, it’s up to you how often you’d like to receive the treatment, although you should keep in mind that your skin generally sheds and regenerates every month!

Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a favorite among our clients because it gets rid of the face’s peach fuzz and old, dry skin to reveal perfectly smooth and glowing skin underneath. This treatment includes the use of a surgical scalpel to carefully remove the top layer of dead skin, allowing greater penetration of beauty products and easier makeup application!

Here at Precision Wellness, we also offer the option to add a Glycolic peel to a dermaplaning session to improve the production of collagen and leave a youthful, beautiful glow. We typically recommend getting a dermaplaning treatment every three to four weeks.

Both of these treatments should be done by a trained esthetician to ensure your skin is treated flawlessly. Because each person’s skin is different, we always encourage you to speak up about your concerns or previous experiences with skin treatments!
