rejuvinated face

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses a specialized blade — similar to a surgical scalpel called a dermatome — to remove dead skin and hairs. People may also refer to it as microplaning or blading. When you have it done by a certified professional aesthetician, experts generally consider it safe. However, a person should not try to do dermaplaning on themselves or others at home.

The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving, but in place of a razor, it uses a scalpel-type blade to remove skin cells, hair, and other debris that may be present on the surface of the skin.

The continuous exposure of the top layer of skin to UV rays, environmental toxins, and irritants means that it may begin to appear dull. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin to reveal newer skin cells that may make a person’s skin appear smoother and glowing.

An esthetician, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist can perform skin resurfacing procedures such as dermaplaning. A person should choose a professional who has appropriate training and a valid license.

When a professional performs dermaplaning, it is a safe procedure that requires very little preparation. Prior to the procedure, the professional should use a gentle cleanser with alpha or beta hydroxy acids to help loosen dead skin cells. The face needs to dry completely before the procedure.

During the procedure, the professional will use a sterilized 10-gauge scalpel that they will hold at a 45-degree angle to the skin. They will pull the skin tight and use the blade to make short motions against the grain of the hair on the skin. Following the procedure, they will often apply a moisturizer to the person’s skin before providing them with a post-procedure care guide.

A person will require little downtime, if any, after a dermaplaning treatment. They will not need to take time off work, and they may even be able to fit their treatment session in during a lunch break.

Cryo T-Shock Benefits

CryoT-Shock has a lot of questions surrounding it. Cryo-T shock is a revolutionary fat loss treatment. We hear clients asking the same few things a lot, "How does it work? Is it safe? How long do the results last? Is it painful?" Dr. Matt McDaniel and the team at Fairlawn Aesthetics performs the fat loss treatment in the Akron Canton area and want to make sure you have all the answers about your Cryo T-Shock fat loss treatment. Cryo T-Shock uses a cooling and heating system to contour your body. Your treatment will begin with a few minutes of heat before switching to a prolonged cooling period, and then finishes with a few more minutes of heat. The cool temperatures cause fat cells to go through something called apoptosis. Apoptosis is caused when fat tissue reaches an internal temperature range between 53 and 62 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature has reached this low, the fat cells begin to die and are then naturally passed out of the body. While res
