The Skin Rejuvenation Treatment Everyone Talks About 

You have probably heard of “Dermaplaning” before, or have seen videos on it, but if you’re still in the “wait, what is that?” stage, here’s the breakdown about it. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment offered at our Med-Spa in Trussville, Alabama. Essentially, the treatment involves using a sterile, surgical-grade scalpel to carefully shave, or scrape, the top-most layer of skin and fine hairs from the face. 
The concept can sound terrifying, but for many, it’s the secret to clear, even, baby smooth and hair-free skin. Dermaplaning also helps give you a smooth foundation application, all without having to use harsh exfoliators.
The results can vary, but realistically, you can expect to experience smoother skin, no peach fuzz, and brighter-looking skin. Also, because Dr. Kulback is removing dead skin cells, your skincare products will better penetrate your skin when you apply them, making them all the more effective. Let us not forget to mention that this treatment is affordable, quick, requires no downtime. (Treatment cost is no more than $100 on average)

Top Benefits of Dermaplaning:

  1. Smoother Skin
  2. Brighter Skin
  3. Fewer Breakouts
  4. Easier Makeup Application
  5. Better Absorption of Skin Care Products & Dermalinfusion Treatments

Is Dermaplaning Right for You?

Dermaplaning can beperformed on any skin type,except for those with medical indications that prohibit scraping of the skin. And there’s zero truth to the idea that shaving makes hair grow back darker and coarser.

What should you do post-treatment?

Eliminating dead skin cells, pollution buildup and downy hair don’t simply create a better base for makeup, it also allows skincare products to sink in more effectively. For the week or so after treatment (by our esthetician Jackie P.) at K2 Restorative Medicine & Med-Spa, your skin will be particularly receptive to anything that you apply, so take advantage and slather on hydrating serums followed by a moisturizer. As with any resurfacing treatment, the skin will be more at risk from UV in the sun, so ensure it’s protected with a good SPF. If you want a deeper exfoliation, follow with a light, acid-based peel, or HydraFacial
