Dermablading can be a wonderful and versatile option for a wide range of patients. At Mia Bella Donna Medspa of Overland Park, KS, we are proud to serve the Kansas City area and are dedicated to helping our patients find the best fit for their needs. We would be happy to tailor a specialized treatment program for you and to answer any remaining questions you have during a consultation.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermablading?
Dermablading is a very gentle treatment, which makes it an easy and safe option for many different issues. If you’re in the Kansas City area and have a specific skin concern or just generally want to encourage a more glowing complexion, this could be a good option for you.
As we age or face various stressors in our lives, we may find that our skin looks more dull than before. Struggling with dull skin can make a patient look more tired than they actually are. This treatment can help your skin shed off old, dead skin cells and encourage a bright, smooth, and youthful complexion. If you want to achieve a more rested look, this treatment can help.
Smooth Out Lines
Wrinkles and lines can start showing up pretty early. They often become more exaggerated when natural collagen levels start to fall sometime in our 20s. Smoking, sun damage, and genetic factors can all contribute to their development, but even with an amazing skincare routine, no one can fight wrinkles back forever. However, encouraging more collagen production can certainly help diminish them.
Collagen is one of the most important building blocks for healthy skin. It helps the skin stay hydrated, firm, and smooth. This treatment gently encourages more collagen production, which can help tighten the skin and reduce wrinkles. Clearing out dead skin and clogged pores can also help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. That means this treatment is able to improve lines and wrinkles in several different ways.
Remove Peach Fuzz
Vellus hair is present all over the body, and the face is no exception. It can be very fine and almost invisible, or it can be fairly thick. This treatment easily clears out peach fuzz.
Some patients want to get rid of vellus hair but are concerned that it will grow back thicker than before. That is a common misunderstanding; vellus hair does not grow back thicker when it’s shaved off. Removing these little hairs can make the skin look and feel soft and smooth. Some patients find it helps the skin to “glow,” and others find it makes makeup application easier.
Clear Clogged Pores
Good at-home exfoliation can certainly help clear out clogged pores, but sometimes it’s not quite enough. Some patients, while trying to improve their skin texture, could risk overdoing it with exfoliation. This could end up accidentally harming the skin. We can professionally and safely exfoliate your skin for you, and this treatment is a great way to do it.
Clogged pores can exaggerate wrinkles, negatively affect skin texture, and make pores appear stretched out. The treatment itself will help get rid of clogs, but by encouraging collagen it can also help pores appear smaller as they tighten up.
Skin texture issues can affect people of any age or gender, but it’s something that can also develop with age. You may find that some parts of your face are smoother than others. This can be caused by many different skin conditions.
After a consultation, we’ll take a look at your skin condition. If this treatment is a good fit for you, encouraging skin regeneration can be a great way to even out skin texture.
Decrease Facial Scars
Acne scars can sometimes improve on their own after a few months, but some patients find themselves stuck with these annoying scars for years. Acne scars can be flat, indented, or raised, and come in a range of sizes. They are almost always a different tone and texture than the surrounding skin. If you have different kinds of acne scars, it can be difficult to find one treatment that helps all of them at once.
This treatment is able to support your skin, and in doing so, improve different kinds of acne scars. By encouraging new and healthy skin development, dermablading can help the scars fade over time.
What Is the Process Like?
A tiny scalpel is used during this treatment. The sterile blade will be gently and safely guided across the face to remove dead skin, encourage facial regeneration, and clear out the pores. It’s a simple treatment that has a lot of applicability, and our team has the training and experience to apply it effectively.
Dermablading, dermaplaning, and microplaning are all interchangeable terms used to describe this process.
We offer a range of options and are dedicated to finding the right choice for each of our patients. Since this treatment is both safe and adaptable, patients of any gender and a wide age range can enjoy its benefits. Pregnant patients may especially find this to be a helpful option, as they are often limited in the types of treatments they can pursue. That said, it’s important to note that your first step should be a consultation.
We want to make sure this treatment is a good fit for your needs, your skin, and your aesthetic goals. We can examine your skin, answer your questions, talk you through the process, and let you know what you can expect from your results. While most patients can expect to be a good candidate, we can also let you know if we think a different treatment would be better for you.
Some benefits are immediate. You may notice your face taking on a natural glow and looking refreshed after your treatment. Other results will improve with time, especially as your collagen levels are amped up.
After your treatment, you don’t have to worry about recovery time. This painless treatment doesn’t require any rest afterwards, so you don’t have to cancel all your plans. If you’re happy with your results and want to maintain them, coming in for several treatments every couple of months can help with that.
There are several different terms used to describe this treatment, which can be a bit confusing. Some patients assume that dermabrasion and dermablading are the same thing, but they are actually different.
Dermabrasion uses abrasion to exfoliate, rather than using a scalpel. The abrasion method scrubs away dead skin. Microdermabrasion sometimes uses small crystals to break up dead skin. Both blading and abrasion approaches can be helpful, but some patients may find dermablading to be easier on the skin.
What Are the Benefits?
This treatment is similar to shaving, and under professional guidance is extremely safe. In fact, patients who are intimidated by lasers or injections may be more comfortable pursuing this treatment instead.
Many cosmetic treatments and even hair elimination methods involve a bit of discomfort, but this treatment has no discomfort to speak of. The blade simply slides over the skin, so you don’t have to brace yourself and you can relax. Those with a lower pain tolerance or anxiety about treatment can find this very relieving.
This treatment boosts your body’s healing response and healthy collagen production. Giving your skin some extra help can encourage it to look and feel healthier. Our team does offer a range of effective treatments, including injectables, but we also recognize that some patients prefer to avoid injections.
Encouraging extra collagen production can offer significant benefits that improve your skin’s appearance naturally. Your skin should look more refreshed and healthy after your treatment.
This treatment can help patients of any skin tone or type. Everyone can benefit from professionally exfoliating their face, taking good care of their skin, and encouraging collagen production.
While we always recommend a consultation to make sure this treatment has the best chance of helping you, patients who struggle to find a good treatment due to sensitive skin or allergies are often encouraged to have a gentle and effective treatment option.
The treatment itself is fast, which definitely helps when it comes to stress-free, convenient scheduling. Another way it can offer some extra convenience is by making makeup application a bit simpler.
Skin texture issues and peach fuzz can both be an annoyance if you enjoy wearing makeup and want a smooth application. Treating your skin is a great way to prepare your face and help it be a tighter and smoother canvas before you apply your makeup.
Is There Anything I Should Do To Improve My Results?
Nourish Your Skin
This treatment will offer a window of opportunity where your skin is especially receptive to topical ointments. Before you go rushing for a salve that looks promising, feel free to ask us for advice. You’ll want to avoid ointments that could irritate your skin and will want to use something that will help boost your results. We would be happy to give you our recommendations.
Anything that’s good for your skin before your treatment is good for it afterward. Unprotected sun exposure can lead to skin damage, which can affect your skin’s ability to produce collagen. Sun damage can also cause uneven skin tone and texture. Protecting your skin can help you make your results last longer and look better.
Some moisturizers and makeup will contain sunblock to protect your skin. You can also use a gentle daily sunscreen that’s designed for the face. Sunglasses can help protect the skin around your eyes, and a protective lip balm can be used for your lips. Hats can be a great accessory while offering even more protection.
Guard Your Health
Both tobacco and nicotine can impair your skin’s ability to keep up healthy collagen production. Most people know that smoking can damage the lungs, teeth, and heart, but protecting your skin is another good reason to quit smoking.
A big part of this treatment’s power is encouraging collagen production, so stopping habits that negatively impact collagen can help you get the best results from your treatment.
