Dermalplanning versus microdermabrasion
They both provide exfoliation. However, dermalplanning also removes the fine white hair, peach fuzz, and microdermabrasion does not. My patients love the results from dermalplanning. Especially eliminating all that stubborn hair.
The difference between dermaplaning and microdermabrasion
Dermaplaning uses a scalpel blade to lightly scrape the skin for smoothing and exfoliation in a very superficial manner. Microdermabrasion is more aggressive and uses a sanding paddle or aluminum oxide crystals blown across the skin as a non-surgical exfoliating treatment for dull or rough skin, age spots, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne and acne scarring. Microdermabrasion accelerates the cellular turnover process and stimulates your skin to produce new collagen, bringing you closer to healthier, younger looking skin. It allows for the gradual resurfacing of skin without the risks, side effects and down-time of other, more aggressive alternatives.
