Finding the right combination of products and cosmetic treatments for your skin type is both an art and a science. With so many options from which to choose, finding the right mix for your skin requires some trial and error.
Here’s what you can expect from each procedure and when it makes sense to use them together for better results.
How dermaplaning works
Dermaplaning (also known as microblading or blading) is a deep exfoliation treatment. We remove the top layer of your skin cells with a gentle blade to reveal fresher, smoother, brighter looking skin.
Despite the use of a blade, dermaplaning is a gentle and noninvasive procedure, so there’s no downtime or extended recovery period. You might experience a little redness after the procedure, but it should resolve quickly.
And at 30 minutes per appointment, you can squeeze a dermaplaning session in on your lunch break or after work without planning for recovery time.
Dermaplaning is generally suitable for most skin types, and we recommend it for common skin problems like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, blocked pores, and dull skin.
Before recommending and applying a treatment, our team at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic provides a comprehensive skin evaluation so we can recommend the best treatments and products for your needs.
How HydraFacials work
A HydraFacial is a comprehensive skin care treatment that consists of cleansing and exfoliation, extraction and hydration, and a serum-infused protective layer to lock in moisturize and give your skin a dewy, glowing finish.
HydraFacials are suitable for all skin types, so you can enjoy the cleansing and moisturizing effects even if you have sensitive skin.
If you need deeper cleansing and have pronounced skin damage from the sun or the aging process, Dr. Ejtemaee and our team may recommend a combination of treatments like dermaplaning and a HydraFacial for the best results.
