Dermaplaning – the little extra that goes a long way

1537483835555-Diwan, Dermaplaning - Image

A great facial treatment for today’s busy lifestyle, dermaplaning immediately improves the appearance of your face with no downtime.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Also referred to as dermablading, the procedure is carefully performed with a fine blade, by our credentialed staff, without the need for any anesthetic. There are no needles, cuts or injections that penetrate the skin. The treatment is completely non-invasive, as the blade’s edge just removes what’s unwanted on the surface of your skin to address many common skin issues, including those caused by sun damage and time:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Brown discoloration
  • Clogged pores and acne
  • Dull complexion
  • Dry or rough texture
  • Fine vellus hair, called “peach fuzz”

In 25-30 minutes, dermaplaning reveals soft, smooth skin by removing the excess build up of “dead cells” and debris on the surface of the face and sweeping away “peach fuzz” (fine hair). (See our video on our Facebook page). By eliminating surface debris, the technique not only restores a glow to your skin, it also removes the debris blocking pores and improves acne. Superficial fine wrinkles and pigmentation on the skin are also improved by dermaplaning. Removing the excess build up of dead cells and debris from the surface enhances the penetration and effectiveness of skin care products optimizing the results. The removal of “peach fuzz” helps make up go on more smoothly.

These effects of dermaplaning give your skin additional enhancement after other rejuvenating treatments such as Botox and filler injections, making it a great add-on procedure for even better results! Dermaplaning is perfect for both men and women of any skin type—fair to dark. Monthly maintenance treatments keep your skin at its best.

Does Dermaplaning Hurt?

Unlike other “non-surgical” treatments, this procedure is There are no injections or needles penetrating your skin to cause micro-injuries.

Love Your Lashes with Latisse®

Diwan, Latisse - Image

Do you long for longer eyelashes? Naturally, Latisse is your solution. Latisse is an FDA-approved prescription product in the form of a solution. By using Latisse your own lashes become longer, fuller and darker. Because they’re your own, your lashes look very natural and you’re free to do as you please without your lovely lashes coming off.

You can forget about the hassle of extensions and synthetic lashes which fall off and look fake, especially as they come off, and need to be replenished with monthly appointments. With simple at-home application, Latisse will gradually enhance your lashes so they’re beautiful and natural-looking.

How it works

Latisse prolongs the growth phase of eyelash hair allowing them to grow longer. It also keeps more of your lashes in their growth phase, rather than the resting phase, adding to the number and thickness of your lashes. It takes about 4 to 8 weeks to start noticing the enhancement. As you continue to use Latisse your lashes continue to lengthen. Once your lashes are long and full, continue applying Latisse to keep them looking that way. Come back and get more before you run out of Latisse, or your lashes will gradually revert back to their original appearance over the next 2-3 months.

As Latisse enhances your own lashes, you don’t have to worry about them coming off, like glued lash extensions, when you rub your eyes, swim or simply wash and dry your face.

Does this have you wondering if Latisse can have the same benefits for thinning eyebrows? In fact, even though Latisse has FDA approval to be used for enhancing eyelashes only, it has been successfully employed (off-label) for enhancing eyebrows as well. Even more benefits of Latisse may become apparent in the future! Latisse is being evaluated in trials for its effectiveness for thinning scalp hair.

Latisse comes with applicator brushes and a package insert that details how it should be applied and its possible risks. At the Laser and Skin Surgery Center, Dr. Diwan will give you detailed instructions on how to get the most out of the product and your investment in your lashes. For your convenience, at your next visit, you can take home a bottle of Latisse from our office!
