About Facials

A facial is a skincare treatment performed by a licensed esthetician and typically involves a series of steps and techniques designed to improve the overall health and appearance of your face and neck.

The exact steps and products used in a facial can vary depending on your specific needs and the type of facial performed. However, a typical facial often includes:

  • A consultation to review your skin types and understand your needs
  • Cleansing
  • The removal of dead skin cells through exfoliation
  • Steam, to open your pores and soften the skin
  • Extractions, if necessary, to remove blackheads, whiteheads, or other impurities from the skin
  • Facial massage
  • Masks and treatments
  • Serums and moisturizers

Throughout the facial, the esthetician may provide guidance on proper skincare techniques, recommend suitable products, and answer any questions you may have.

It’s important to note that there are various types of facials available, such as:

  • Deep cleansing facials
  • Anti-aging facials, acne facials
  • Brightening facials

The specific steps and products used can vary based on your skin type and desired outcomes.

Dermaplane Services in Midtown Atlanta and Alpharetta

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation technique performed by a trained skincare professional. It involves using a sterile blade to gently scrape off dead skin cells and vellus hair (commonly known as “peach fuzz”) from the surface of the skin. The procedure is typically conducted on the face, but it can also be done on other areas of the body.

Here are some key benefits of dermaplaning for the skin:

  • Exfoliation: Dermaplaning provides a deep exfoliation by effectively removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. This process reveals smoother, fresher skin underneath, improving the skin’s texture and tone.
  • Enhanced skincare product absorption: By removing the layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, dermaplaning allows skincare products to penetrate more effectively into the skin. This maximizes the benefits of serums, moisturizers, and other skincare treatments, as they can directly reach the deeper layers of the skin.
  • Brighter complexion: Dermaplaning can help brighten the skin by eliminating the dull and dead skin cells that contribute to a lackluster appearance. After the procedure, the skin often appears more radiant and rejuvenated.
  • Smoother makeup application: The removal of vellus hair and dead skin cells through dermaplaning creates a smoother canvas for makeup application. Foundation and other cosmetics tend to glide on more evenly, resulting in a more flawless finish.
  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles: Dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The exfoliation process stimulates cell turnover and collagen production, leading to a plumper and more youthful-looking complexion.
  • Safe and non-invasive: Dermaplaning is a non-surgical procedure that is generally safe for most skin types, including sensitive skin. It is non-invasive, meaning it does not involve the use of chemicals, lasers, or harsh abrasives.
  • Minimal downtime: Unlike more invasive procedures, dermaplaning typically requires little to no downtime. It is a quick treatment with immediate results, allowing individuals to resume their normal activities shortly after the procedure.

It is important to note that dermaplaning should be performed by a trained professional to ensure safety and optimal results. Consulting with a skincare specialist can help determine if dermaplaning is suitable for your skin type and to address any concerns you may have.

Dermaplaning as an add-on service

Dermaplaning can be a great add-on experience as part of a facial, providing enhanced exfoliation, deeper product penetration, and an exceptionally smooth and bright complexion.

Many individuals choose to have a facial before an important event or occasion where they may want to wear makeup. By adding dermaplaning to the experience, the removal of vellus hair and dead skin cells provides an incredibly smooth canvas for makeup application. Makeup tends to adhere better and appear more flawless, resulting in a more professional and long-lasting finish.

It is important to consult with your esthetician or skincare professional to ensure that dermaplaning is a suitable add-on after a facial, as it may depend on your individual skin type, concerns, and the specific treatments used during the facial.
