Dermaplaning is a gentle skin resurfacing procedure utilizing a special surgical blade to remove the top layer of dead skin cells. The removal not only allows for cell renewal, but also allows for better penetration of professional and home products, optimizing their results. As an added bonus it also removes facial hair –a great procedure for patients wanting to remove lighter-colored facial hair or “peach fuzz,” which does not respond to laser treatment. Dermaplaning is fantastic on its own, though it can also be used in combination with almost any facial or chemical peel for a greater impact. The Skinceuticals Micropeel combines dermaplaning, a chemical exfoliation, and cryogenic therapy to reduce signs of photo-damage. It improves skin texture and radiance, helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and supports healthy collagen levels for firmer skin. It is a great alternative for clients that are not a good candidate for Microdermabrasion.

For skin micro-needling, we use an electric skin needling device made especially for this purpose. The device is a pen shaped studded with 12 very fine needles. It is a medical device used in micro needling to break down old superficial scar tissue and to stimulate skin cells to proliferate. This cell multiplication results in the formation of new tissue layers of elastin and collagen fibers as well as in new capillaries for an improved blood supply.
What conditions can be treated or improved with Medical Micro-Needling?
Mild acne scarring; any new or old scars
Skin texture and pore size
Decrease oiliness in the skin seborrhoea
Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
Improve the efficacy of medical skincare creams
How many skin needling procedures does one need?
Each patient’s skin condition determines the number of treatments that are needed. Mild acne scars may need between three and four treatments, while thermal burns and stretch marks may need five or more. Conditions such as wrinkles caused by aging, one or two refresher treatments are recommended per year.
Does the treatment hurt?
With the use of an effective topical numbing cream, it is tolerated very well and best of all the downtime is minimal with most clients returning to normal activities within 24 to 48 hours. The entire treatment including numbing takes less than an hour, depending on size of the area treated.
What areas can be treated?
Micro needling can safely be used on nearly all parts of the body with the most frequent treatmens being on the:
* MicroPens use sterile single-use surgical grade disposable needle tips. There is no potential for cross contamination between patients because there is never a re-use of needles. * Adjustable needle penetration depths allows a custom treatment program for your specific skin problems and preferences for treatment aggressiveness. * Micro needling is safe for ALL skin types. This is a boost for skins that have a tendency to over react to heat based treatments or those with ultra sensitive skins which do not tolerate heat treatments well. * Dr. K’s Med Spa prefers the cordless MicroPen because it allows unrestricted movements to reach all facial areas without the interference of cords or wires.
