Dermaplaning Exfoliation & Facial Hair Removal

Dermaplaning


Immediate, radiant results

At Flawless Medical Spa in East Greenwich, RI, we offer dermaplaning for patients who wish to remove facial hair and rejuvenate dull skin. Dermaplaning leaves the facial surface very smooth, resulting in fresh, bright skin.


How it works

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently shave the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz). By removing the dead layer and facial hair, new skin comes to the surface. Your new flawless skin allows skincare products to penetrate deeply and makeup to go on more smoothly.

For facial hair removal

Most people seek dermaplaning treatments to remove facial hair, especially those with thicker, more visible vellus hairs. It can be difficult to get rid of these fine hairs with other hair-removal techniques like waxing and threading. Therefore, dermaplaning is a better solution.

And let’s dispel that old-wives tale that your hair will grow back thicker if you remove it… Whichever hair removal technique you choose, it will have no effect on your returning hair growth. The speed of your hair growth is purely based on genetics.

For deep exfoliation

While facial hair removal is the primary reason for dermaplaning, it also provides deep exfoliation. By removing the top layer of dull, dead skin cells, the skin gets evened out and extremely smooth. Derma-planing is particularly great for those with skin sensitivities who cannot get other facial treatments.


Treatment plan

Treatment takes about 15 – 30 minutes. In order to maintain your results, you will typically need a dermaplaning treatment once a month. This depends on your hair growth cycle, and your Flawless clinician will help to determine a treatment schedule that is right for you.

Dermaplaning is not recommended for those with acne, as it can cause further irritation. You will need to wait until any acne breakouts are clear before trying this treatment.


What to expect

First, your Flawless clinician will thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin. While keeping an area of your skin taut with one hand, she’ll use short, swift strokes with the scalpel to scrape off the dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Dermaplaning is completely painless and the brightening results are immediate. Your skin will have a more even tone, texture, and radiance, and all of your peach fuzz will be gone.

There are no side effects or downtime with dermaplaning. After your treatment, your skin will be very sensitive to sun exposure, so be sure to protect your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen.

What dermaplaning can do for you

Dermaplaning has many advantages for all skin types. It can:

  • Provide a deep exfoliation option for clients with skin sensitivities
  • Painlessly exfoliate and stimulate cellular regeneration with little to no downtime
  • Allow better product penetration when done before other facial treatments
  • Help makeup go on more smoothly and evenly
  • Significantly lighten acne scars

Micro-Needling Collagen Induction Therapy

Microneedling


Naturally restore collagen and elastin

At Flawless Medical Spa in East Greenwich, RI, our Micro-Needling treatments improve the damage caused by acne, sun, and aging. Microneedling triggers the body’s natural wound-healing process, causing it to produce collagen and elastin. The results are smoother, softer, glowing skin.


How it works

Micro-Needling, also known as Collagen Induction Therapy, can be performed either on the face or body, and is suitable for all skin types and colors. The results are similar to laser resurfacing and chemical peels, but with less cost, discomfort, and downtime.

Micro needling is a controlled micro-injury that triggers a wound healing response. These micro-wounds in the deeper layers of the skin fill with new collagen and elastin. In addition, new capillaries are formed leading to greater oxygen and nutrient absorption. Since healthy surface layers remain intact, microneedling has a faster healing time than other skin resurfacing treatments.

The procedure

First, we clean and apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. Next, a microneedling tool is gently applied to your skin, creating tiny, superficial micro-punctures.

We offer several serums that can be used in conjunction with micro-needling. The serums are able to deeply penetrate into the micro-punctures, aiding the natural healing process and creation of collagen.

Microneedling with PRP (platelet rich plasma) speeds up the healing process and boosts the effects of micro-needling so you achieve results faster. Because the treatment uses your own plasma, allergic reactions are extremely rare.

Your Flawless clinician will draw a small amount of your blood. This is processed to separate platelets from the blood cells – this is the PRP (platelet rich plasma). Your PRP is topically applied and absorbed through the micro needling punctures, stimulating the natural healing process and creation of collagen.

Growth factors are naturally found in your skin, but as you age, their natural production slows down dramatically. This leads to loss of collagen, and results in fine lines, unwanted pigmentation, loss of elasticity, and more.

Combining Microneedling with Growth Factors produces dramatic results. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and age spots are greatly diminished. The result is healthy, smooth skin.

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, but as you age, less and less is produced. Similar to collagen loss, as hyaluronic acid levels drop, the skin has less support. And as structure and volume is lost, wrinkles and folds become more pronounced.

Hyaluronic acid is deeply nourishing to the skin. When Hyaluronic acid is absorbed into the skin after micro-needling, it can restore lost volume, and smooth and tighten the skin.

Microneedling for hair growth is proving particularly beneficial for both men and women suffering from progressive types of hair loss such as androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness).

Microneedling on the scalp leads to increased production of important growth factors, including stem cells and hair growth-related genes. This leads to an increase in hair production.

We combine Microneedling with PRP for our hair restoration treatments. This boosts the effects and speeds up the healing process.

Treatment plan

Each patient’s skin needs and goals vary, and the number of treatments needed will depend on your desired results, the area, and condition being treated. We typically recommend at least three treatments, with four weeks between treatments. Maintenance treatments thereafter can be determined in your Flawless customized plan.


What to expect

Prior to the treatment, a topical anesthetic is spread on your skin to help reduce discomfort.

Micro-needling has minimal downtime compared to laser treatments and chemical peels. After the treatment, your skin will be slightly pink and may feel sunburned, but this typically subsides within 24-72 hours. You will continue to see improvements over three to six months, as your skin heals and new collagen and elastin are produced.

We recommend patients do not wear makeup for 24 hours. You should also avoid excessive sun exposure, and use additional sun protection following a treatment.

What Microneedling can do for you

Microneedling can greatly reduce or eliminate the following skin issues:

  • Acne scars
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Thin, sagging skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Uneven skin texture
