There are many different ways to exfoliate the skin. The primary ways are by manual or chemical exfoliation. Exfoliation helps to get rid of dead, dry skin that can accumulate on the skin surface over time. Exfoliation is a great way to instantly brighten and smooth skin. In medical aesthetics, microdermabrasion and chemical peels are commonly used forms of exfoliation, and are both quite effective. Derma blading (or derma plane) is also a means of manual exfoliation that is extremely effective in getting rid of dead skin and facial hair. It is also a great precursor to other procedures like lasers, chemical peels and masks. Derma blading prior to other treatments means other products and procedures will penetrate further into the skin, ultimately giving stronger results.
Derma blading is also a good procedure to undergo prior to having cosmetic surgery. It is one way patients can help improve the skin they have so that following surgery, their skin is in great condition. Many patients undergoing face lift surgeries are encouraged to begin a skin care regimen before surgery and are strongly encouraged to keep up the regimen following surgery to make the results as good as possible. Lifted skin is not necessarily attractive skin if the patient has lots of photo damage or other skin conditions. Derma blading can help patients get their skin in great condition prior to and after undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Because derma blading works to smooth and even out the skin, patients often find that their skin care products work better by penetrating more deeply, and that makeup goes on much easier. When the complexion is smooth and free of dead skin buildup and fine facial hair, a “clean slate” is created so to speak as makeup glides on flawlessly.
