Do you need a skin rejuvenation that is going to take you from “No” to “Glow” without any lasers or downtime?
Skintology Medspa’s combination of Dermaplaning and Hydrafacial treatment can help you to reveal
your most beautiful skin this season. This treatment helps to achieve a healthy natural glow and refresh the skin,
to allow deeper penetration of your products and serums. A buildup of dead skin cells and microscopic hairs
can make your skin appear dull, flaky, clogging pores and causing congestion in the process.
Although not visible to the naked eye, these concerns can cause breakouts or milia, which can lead to scarring,
and how better to avoid that than by taking matters into your own hands and having our experts at Skintology
Medspa renew your skin and give you a visage to be confident about!

As we age, natural skin cell turnover slows down drastically meaning we produce fine lines and wrinkles and that the epidermis can appear dull. Now is the time for you to exfoliate and assist in the natural cell turnover and to uncover your new skin. Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types and is especially beneficial for people who experience light breakouts or clogged pores due to lack of exfoliation.

Dermaplaning can be a fantastic treatment for patients who have peach fuzz and would like a smoother, clearer complexion and to allow skincare products to enter the skins’ barrier. Your aesthetician will use a dermaplaning blade carefully angled at 45º, to gently scrape dead skin cells and make way for collagen renewal. By adding on this treatment before the Hydrafacial, we are exfoliating the skin to a much deeper level.

Our experts at Skintology Medspa recommend using sunscreen, and to avoid makeup for 24hours after this procedure, as the skin is more sensitive and no longer has that vellus barrier of protection. Your skin may be slightly tingly after the pores are unblocked, which will subside in the following hours after the procedure.

After this initial step of dermaplaning, our aesthetician will offer you the optional add-on treatment of lymphatic drainage. This part of the treatment involves a suction cupping technique to target the lymph nodes and vessels in the face, to rid the tissue of waste which in turn decreases puffiness and removes internal toxins from the area. This is a relaxing part of the treatment which also leaves you reaping the benefits of a healthy lymphatic system to support all anatomical functions! What’s not to love?!

The next part of the treatment is a deep cleanse. The Hydrafacial utilizes a vacuum suction and relaxing resurfacing technique to mechanically cleanse the pores and unveil the new layer of skin. You will experience a cooling sensation as your aesthetician covers your face with short cleansing strokes revealing the fortified skin beneath.

The 2nd part of the Hydrafacial treatment is to “Extract + Hydrate”. Debris is removed from the pores and quickly disappears up through the suction tube to the canister. First, the serum lifts and softens the sebum and impurities, making it easier for the suction to rid the pore of the debris. This key step includes intense re-moisturizing of the skin
to quench and rehydrate the skin after exfoliation.

The last part of the Hydrafacial is to “Fuse + Protect”, where your aesthetician will saturate the skin’s surface
with antioxidants to protect from free radicals, and peptides to maximize your glow. The Hydrafacial device,
seamlessly combines the 3 most vital parts of a facial to reveal your most beautiful skin. Following the chemical
and mechanical exfoliation, LED Red light is used to reduce redness or inflammation in areas which have become
sensitive during treatment. There is also an option to treat with LED Blue light which is best for acne prone skin,
as it kills bacteria.

This is a great treatment if you want to relax and achieve glowing skin, as the instant stand-alone results are a testament to the Hydrafacial device itself. After our customized treatment, patients notice improvements such as increased radiance, decreased pore size, and a decline in puffiness. Our experts recommend treatment every 4-6 weeks for optimal results.
