Aesthetic Treatments is an extensively broad term used for a number of specialities that focus on improving your cosmetic appearance through the treatment of conditions such as scaring, skin laxity, wrinkles, moles, liver spots, unwanted hair and skin discoloration (plus many more). Although aesthetic treatments are typically elective, they can significantly improve your appearance, quality of life and psychological wellbeing.
Dermaplaning is a highly effective exfoliation procedure which is extremely safe when carried out by a trained skin care therapist and leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated and smoother afterwards. This super exfoliation procedure removes two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. It tricks the body into thinking it has an injury and needs to heal itself immediately producing healthier plumper skin.
Anyone can benefit from a cosmetic skin peel; a mild/superficial peel can be as potent in clearing the skin as having dozens of facials in a matter of minutes. They help to give skin a natural glow, brightness and freshness whilst also greatly improving tone and texture. Cosmetic skin peels dissolve the connections holding the dead cells together on the surface of the skin revealing smoother, healthier skin underneath.
The definition of Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of skin using a sterile surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle to the skin for the removal of dead keratinised cells on the outer epidermal layer or the skin along with fine vellus hair. There is no pain or swelling associated with this procedure. It is a process that has been used in conjunction with medical skin care for nearly the past two decades. It helps reveal healthier more radiant skin. On completion, the skin appears glowing. It is a great service for preparing the skin prior to peels and enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active product ingredients in salon or your home care products.
Dermaplaning is ideal for those with dull, dry or rough skin, minor acne scars, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, ageing skin or skin requiring rejuvenation.
The mechanism of cosmetic skin peels is based on the principles of wound healing, whereby controlled wounding of the skin with the removal of skin layers helps to stimulate cell renewal and regenerate a healthier epidermis and dermis. After a cosmetic skin peel, skin will appear smoother, softer, firmer, lifted and more radiant with a more balanced tone. Cosmetic skin peels have the advantage in that they are extremely effective but less irritating than the deeper medical grade peels. There is no 'downtime' or recovery period.
Cosmetic Peels can be performed regularly and they are suitable for all skin types and those with multiple skin conditions. Cosmetic peels are a safe treatment with little to no risk of complications.
