At-home and over-the-counter beauty treatments have been an on-again/off-again trend for decades now. And some at-home treatments are good! Our Bradenton med-spa provides a full selection of scientifically effective products and treatments for you to utilize in between visits. And unlike retail locations, our med-spa products come with med-spa experts. And our aestheticians are right here to tell you, face-to-face, what products will work for you, and how to use them.
But med-spa science becomes more and more advanced every year. And you absolutely should not try to perform professional-grade med-spa procedures on yourself, or in your own home.
Some spa services just don’t translate well to a home setting. Dermaplaning is one of them.
Here is everything you need to know about dermaplaning: how it works, why over-the-counter “dermaplane” products don’t, and some of the many reasons that all you Bradenton beauties should come to Bellagena Med Spa for the safest and most effective Bradenton dermaplane services.
How Professional Dermaplane Works
In a dermaplane procedure, a professional aesthetician uses a sterilized 10-gauged scalpel, called a dermatome, to remove dead cells and other accumulated debris from the surface of your skin. A combination of careful, professional technique and the professional-grade instruments allows the dermaplane aesthetician to remove maximum surface detritus without damaging the fresh, youthful tissue underneath.
A professional dermaplane treatment at a professional skin-care studio is calibrated to your skin’s current condition and long-term patterns and needs. The professional aesthetician has an up-close and personal view. Their training tells them what to look for and how to treat it, and what they see during the procedure helps to guide their practiced dermaplane techniques.
At Bellagena, our professional dermaplane procedures exfoliate with clinical precision.
Bradenton Dermaplane Benefits
An efficient, effective professional dermaplane procedure benefits your skin’s health and appearance in three primary ways:
Dermaplaning removes damaged skin cells and accumulated grime that dull, darken and stain your skin’s appearance.
Dermaplaning reveals a healthy, glowing layer of skin that has not been exposed to or damaged by environmental factors.
Dermaplaning safely removes sebaceous filaments that otherwise clog your pores.
NOTE: Professional dermaplane is not a hair-removal procedure. The hair removal that occurs during dermaplaning is incidental.
OTC “Shavers”/”Dermaplane” Razors Are Not Dermaplaning
We know we’re stating the obvious here, but: “At-home kits” are often the exact opposite of “medical-grade equipment.” Over-the-counter accessories cannot offer a fraction of the precision found in a professional dermatome. And no one person can achieve the up-close vision or expert movements to achieve a safe, effective dermaplane treatment on every inch of their own face.
Do-it-your-self dermaplaning is nothing more than an imprecise, abrasive, rough-and-ready exercise in futility. If you’re buying a box labeled “dermaplane” in your drug-store lotion aisle, you’re wasting your money and potentially putting your skin at risk.
As with so many ill-advised over-the-counter treatments, at-home dermaplaning is, at best, ineffective. At worst, it can damage and even injure your skin, leading to blemishes, infections and even long-term complications.
Bellagena’s Julia is a National Dermaplane Pro Trainer
That’s right, Bellagena’s own Julia isn’t just a dermaplane expert. She has studied and practiced dermaplane extensively in order to teach it to other aesthetic experts.
When you come to Bellagena Med Spa for dermaplaning, you know you’ll receive the highest professional standard of dermaplane treatment.
Honestly, there’s no reason to use at-home aesthetic treatments here in southwest Florida. Bellagena provides safe and effective dermaplaning, with sterilized equipment in a hygienic skin-care studio, at an affordable price, and at your convenience. In fact, dermaplane treatments are one of our med-spa specialties.
Instead of driving to the drug store and then putting yourself through the agony of an at-home abrasion, a Bellagena dermaplane appointment will cost you less time, less stress, and less harm to your skin while producing exponentially more effective and longer-lasting results.
