Exfoliating treatments. Daily I use my Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads and have for years. But as the temps cool I add exfoliation to my facials and with the varieties offered, it can be difficult to know which treatment is right for you and your skin. Many exfoliation procedures are very similar when it comes to results, with slight variations in techniques.
But with the holidays upon us it’s time to glow so you want to look for a non-invasive, fast, exfoliation procedure that requires no recovery time so you can shine! Microdermabrasion or Dermaplaning may be your answer. Each offers the benefits of advanced exfoliation, including soft, smooth skin, and a healthy, glowing complexion.
Microderms have been one of the top non-surgical treatments used to rejuvenate and renew facial skin. I have used microderm treats for years. It gently removes the top layers of dead, dull skin cells using a crushed diamond-encrusted vacuum suction wand. I tell my husband it’s like sandblasting with a wink! Results in your mirror will show a smooth texture, brighter complexion, as well as the softening of fine lines and wrinkles.
Microderms are not for everyone, however. If you suffer from skin conditions that cause redness or sensitive skin, a microderm may be too harsh for your skin type. In this case, as my favorite ‘glow’ friend, Claudia, explained dermaplaning is a better option.
Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation in which a sharp surgical blade is used to manually scrape off any build-up of dead skin cells on the face. It rids your face of dead skin cells and softens the appearance of fine lines and scarring. This procedure also removes any “peach fuzz.” Following a dermaplane treatment, you see the results immediately as your skin is smooth and radiant.
Both microderm and dermaplaning will leave your skin looking and feeling refreshed and ready for your next holiday party. Celebrate the season! Cheers!
