Would you like to boost the radiance of your skin and improve your sun damage, acne scars, fine lines, and other aesthetic issues? You can achieve these goals by receiving chemical peels and dermaplaning treatments from Aesthetic Surgical Arts/Mia Bella Donna Medspa in Overland Park, Kansas. Combining these two aesthetic techniques will allow you to achieve dramatic changes in your appearance.
Can You Combine Dermaplaning and Chemical Peels?
Dermaplaning is a comfortable treatment that will exfoliate your skin and enhance your complexion. This technique is sometimes called dermablading. During a chemical peel, we will use pharmaceutical-grade ingredients to improve your aesthetic issues. Combining these two aesthetic techniques will allow you to achieve a glowing complexion and healthy-looking, radiant skin.
If you are interested in receiving multiple treatments, we will exfoliate your skin before we perform your chemical peel. Receiving these two cosmetic treatments during a single appointment will enhance the effectiveness of each technique and provide you with a number of important benefits.
Achieving More Significant Improvements
During your first treatment, we will use non-invasive, gentle techniques to carefully remove dead cells that are attached to the outer layer of your skin. This process will allow your chemical peel to penetrate into your deeper tissues. As a result, your chemical peel will create more significant improvements in your wrinkles, acne, pigmentation challenges, and other problems.
Improving Your Skincare Regime
In addition to creating quick changes in your skin, these two treatments will improve the effectiveness of your skincare routine. Combining these two treatments will allow us to thoroughly exfoliate your skin. Removing your dead skin cells will make it easier for your cosmetic products to reach the deeper layers of your facial tissues. Over time, these products will hydrate your skin, reduce wrinkles, and produce other benefits.
What Cosmetic Issues Can These Treatments Improve?
These two treatments will enhance the texture of your skin, minimize your acne scars, remove fine hairs from your face, and improve many other cosmetic problems.
Removing Peach Fuzz
It’s normal to have a layer of fine, soft hair on your face. These hairs are sometimes called peach fuzz. Although these hairs are usually harmless, they will cause dirt and other types of debris to gather on the surface of your skin. In addition, your peach fuzz can make it difficult to apply foundation and other types of makeup.
We will use a special blade to gently remove some of these hairs during the first portion of your appointment. Eliminating your peach fuzz will give your skin a smooth, attractive texture. After we have removed these hairs, you will have an easier time applying makeup and beauty products onto your skin.
Achieving Radiant Skin
When you become older, your skin may begin to lose flexibility, and your complexion may become duller and less vibrant. This issue is likely to develop when your collagen levels start to decline. During your chemical peel, we will use a customized solution to boost your collagen production. Restoring your collagen levels will give you firmer, more radiant skin.
Improving Your Wrinkles
Our specialized chemical solutions and sophisticated exfoliation techniques will also improve your lines and folds. If you have fine lines on your face, we may instruct you to correct this issue by combining your dermaplaning treatment with a light peel. If you have deeper creases, we may advise you to get a stronger type of chemical peel.
Addressing Other Aesthetic Concerns
In addition to fading your creases and wrinkles, these two treatments can correct sun damage and improve your acne. We can also use these techniques to fix large pores, scars, melasma, age spots, and other skin conditions.
How Should I Prepare for These Two Treatments?
You cannot receive these treatments if your skin is sunburned. To avoid this problem, you will need to stay out of strong sunlight and wear sunscreen during the weeks before your appointment. In addition, you cannot get these exfoliating treatments if you are dealing with an active acne breakout. If you experience this problem, you should call us to reschedule your appointment.
Since beauty products can alter your skin’s reaction to your peel, we will also instruct you not to use certain types of anti-aging products for seven days. For example, you will need to temporarily stop using products that contain Differin, Retin-A, or Retinol.
What Types of Chemical Peels Can I Receive?
Since we will choose ingredients that will match the condition of your skin, receiving a chemical peel is an ideal way to address the specific aesthetic concerns that are bothering you.
For example, we may advise you to get a light peel if you have never used this treatment before. You can also use a light peel to address relatively minor cosmetic issues. If you are trying to fix more significant aesthetic problems, we may advise you to receive a medium or deep peel.
A Light Peel
Our light chemical peels can decrease your fine lines, minimize your acne scars, and even your skin tone. Since this type of peel will use very mild ingredients, you will be able to receive light peels on a regular basis. For example, we may advise you to incorporate dermaplaning treatments and light peels into your normal skincare routine.
A Medium Peel
If you would like to correct more significant wrinkles or scars, you should think about getting a medium peel. We can also use a medium peel to address age spots and sun damage. During this type of treatment, we will administer a gentle solution of trichloroacetic or glycolic acid onto your skin.
This peel will penetrate the deeper layers of your skin and boost your collagen production. As your collagen proteins increase, your wrinkles will fade and your skin will become brighter. Since this technique will use powerful ingredients, you will need to wait several months before you receive your next medium peel.
A Deep Peel
During this type of peel, we will use phenol or trichloroacetic acid to renew your skin. Our deep peels can be used to treat significant scars and deep wrinkles. Since this technique is very powerful, your results will last for a long time.
What Will Happen During My Appointment?
We will perform both of these anti-aging treatments during a comfortable appointment at our office in Overland Park.
Beginning Your Treatment
After we have cleansed your skin, we will gently move a sterile blade over your face. This blade will allow us to remove some of your damaged and dead skin cells. This technique will also remove fine hairs from your face. This a comfortable, relaxing process, and we will show you the materials that we are removing from your skin.
Receiving Your Chemical Peel
Once we have finished exfoliating your face, we will begin your next aesthetic treatment. Since we provide several types of chemical peels, the details of this part of your appointment will vary. If you are receiving one of our stronger peels, we may provide you with a gentle numbing agent. Once you are ready, we will administer your customized chemical solution.
We will sit with you while your chemical solution improves your tissues. After a sufficient amount of time has passed, we will gently remove your peel. Next, we will put sunscreen and a protective balm onto your face. Before you leave our office, we will provide you with a customized set of aftercare rules.
What Rules Should I Follow After I Receive These Aesthetic Treatments?
Since both of these treatments will use gentle methods to exfoliate and renew your skin, you will have a short period of downtime. During your recovery period, we will ask you to adjust your skincare routine and make other minor changes to your daily schedule. Although these instructions will be tailored to match the type of peel that you receive, there are some general rules that you should keep in mind.
Adjust Your Skincare Routine
It’s important to avoid using powerful skincare products after your appointment is complete. In particular, we will instruct you not to use Retin-A, exfoliants, and products with a large amount of fragrance for a while. Instead of using these products, you can moisturize your skin with gentle lotions. Once your skin has adjusted to your treatments, we will usually instruct you to return to your normal skincare routine.
Pamper Your Skin
After your treatments are complete, you should prevent your hair from irritating your face by wearing headbands and scarves. If you have long hair, we may recommend wearing ponytails for a while. In addition, you should not pick at your skin while your tissues are healing.
You will need to wear strong, high-quality sunscreen on your face during your recovery period. In general, we will advise you to use sunscreen that has an SPF of at least 50 and wear a hat when you go outside. If you are spending a long time outside, you should protect your face by regularly reapplying your sunscreen.
Will My Exfoliation Treatment Cause My Peach Fuzz to Become Thicker?
Many people think that removing your fine facial hairs will cause them to grow more quickly. In addition, some people think that receiving a dermablading treatment could cause these facial hairs to become darker. Fortunately, these rumors are not true.
After your appointment is complete, the hairs on your face will continue to grow in a normal manner. These hairs will not become thicker or more noticeable during the months after your exfoliating treatment.
Should I Receive Multiple Treatment Sessions?
To maintain your smooth, radiant skin, you should receive regular maintenance treatments. It’s normal to receive a dermablading treatment every four to six weeks. If you are using light chemical peels to enhance your skin, you might be able to receive this type of gentle peel during each of your appointments.
However, you will typically receive two or three medium peels every year. In addition, you can receive a deep peel once every couple of years. If you are combining your exfoliation treatments with these types of peels, we will probably advise you to receive frequent dermaplaning treatments and periodic chemical peels.
Enhance Your Complexion
Receiving a dermaplaning treatment and chemical peel during a single appointment will provide you with noticeable improvements in your skin. Combining these two techniques will brighten your complexion and allow beauty products to penetrate the deeper layers of your skin.
