One of the key factors in maintaining a vibrant and youthful appearance is skin that is healthy and voluminous. While skin is charged with the enormous responsibilities of protecting our bodies, it’s put in the precarious position of being exposed to harmful elements on a daily basis. Exposure to the sun and chemical pollutants can cause our skin to age more quickly than we would like. Combined with the natural impact of aging which sees collagen and elastin levels decrease over time, skin can be up against impossible forces.
For both men and women, these detrimental factors can leave skin looking dull, sunken and often covered with evidence of developing fine lines and wrinkles. Together, these effects can work to make an individual look older than they actually are. While creams and serums can provide a certain amount of assistance at diminishing the appearance of these changes, particularly across facial skin, when it comes to long-term and drastic improvements, more targeted steps may need to be taken.
Many patients are finding that regaining a youthful complexion begins with Dermaplaning in St Louis. This innovative cosmetic treatment proves highly successful and takes the benefit of exfoliation to another level.
How Does Dermaplaning in St Louis Work?
Many patients elect Dermaplaning when it comes to achieving more youthful and vibrant skin in large part due to the efficiency of the procedure. Dermaplaning can be done in an outpatient setting right in the comfort of the attending physician’s office. The treatment itself takes only minutes to perform and patients are often thrilled to learn that Dermaplaning comes with minimal to no downtime required. Treatment is carried out by a certified cosmetic physician who will work closely with the patient to target specific problem areas of the skin. During Dermaplaning STL treatment, a 10-gauge blade is run along the surface of the skin and as it travels, it gently removes dead skin cells that cause the skin to appear dull. In addition to these dead skin cells, the blade is simultaneously removing micro hairs. Many patients report that the sensation associated with a Dermaplaning session can be likened to daily shaving. The highly precise nature of the blades used during Dermaplaning means patients can expect results that include a smoother and brighter area of skin at the treatment site.
Results and Follow Up Expectations
The beauty of Dermaplaning lies in the quick results. Many patients report noticeable differences after a single session. While one session can be elected by a patient, those looking for long-term successful results will often be advised to schedule follow up appointments at least once a month. No matter how many sessions a patient undergoes, the general rule of thumb following treatment is to stay out of the sun. The skin can be sensitive following Dermaplaning and will need to be protected from UV rays, particularly as healthy new skin cells are replacing the removed dead cells. On average, a Dermaplaning session lasts 30 minutes and at most, patients may experience mild discomfort that can easily be treated with over-the-counter pain medication as needed.
The cost of Dermaplaning is highly dependent on the severity of the area being treated and the number of sessions required to achieve successful results. The team at the St. Louis Laser Liposuction Center is more than happy to provide patients with a variety of in-clinic financing and payment plan options.
The Many Benefits of Dermaplaning
Any time dead skin cells are removed from the surface of the body, new skin cells are able to take their place, leaving skin looking healthier, brighter and more voluminous. This process is likely to reduce the overall appearance of wrinkles and fine lines as well, leaving patients with a more youthful appearance. As an added benefit, many patients who undergo Dermaplaning STL report their skin feels significantly softer after treatment as well. The removal of micro hairs during the Dermaplaning process can also assist patients that struggle with clogged pores and breakouts. In the long-term, this may lead to far fewer complications with acne, especially in young adults.
