In the world of plastic surgery, both surgical and nonsurgical treatments can help achieve facial rejuvenation. In the non-operative realm, cosmetic injections have made incredible strides in maximizing a youthful appearance.
While surgical procedures will afford patients with more distinct and longer lasting results, non-surgical procedures should not be dismissed. There is a certain age group which benefits greatly from treatments such as cosmetic injections, a series of chemical peels, and dermaplaning. Those in their thirties, forties and fifties seek out a variety of these treatments for their aesthetic goals.
Also, those who have undergone operative facial rejuvenation turn to these various treatments to help maintain the results of their surgery.
Dermaplaning is considered an excellent treatment avenue to exfoliate the skin. Using a stainless steel tool, the skilled hand of an aesthetic registered nurse glides along the facial canvas removing dead skin cells as well as vellus hair. Also referred to as “peach fuzz,” oil and dirt adheres to superficial vellus hair.
When the top layers of dead skin cells and vellus hair is removed, smoother and more luminous results are unveiled.
There is no downtime for dermaplaning. Many describe it as a tranquil treatment which lasts under 30 minutes. Those who are in favor of the results have the treatment done on a monthly basis.
A few times a year, however, they may also incorporate a light chemical peel following the dermaplaning. The reason for this is that dermaplaning prepares the skin for a more results-driven peel.
Regardless of what is chosen, it’s important to point out that while these procedures are considered minimally invasive, they should be done in a medical setting with someone who is highly skilled and educated in facial anatomy.
By affording patients with both operative and non-operative treatments, aesthetic harmony can be achieved in a variety of ways.
