  2. Dermaplaning



A dermaplane treatmentis a powerful exfoliation technique where dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) is mechanically and gently scraped off with a surgical scalpel. The skin is not broken so there is no pain or discomfort. Results are immediately visible, with skin smooth, soft and glowing. Make up goes on with ease and products are better absorbed.

The treatment of dermaplaning dates back to the 60s. Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, and Elizabeth Taylor were pioneers in the use of this technique. PURE medical aesthetics utilizes cosmetic dermaplaning in Stamford to leave the face smooth and soft. Dermaplaning removes the deep and superficial dead cells, which over time have concentrated on the face.

PURE medical aesthetics uses thistreatment on most skin types. Before treating, a skin consultation will be conducted to determine if a client is a candidate. The treatment session can be completed with or without a facial prior to dermaplaning. The benefit to a facial before is that the skin is thoroughly cleansed and pores are cleaned ensuring the best results.

Treatment typically takes 40 minutes and is recommended to do every 4-6 weeks. Its best to avoid the sun for a few days after since your skin will be more sensitive. Usually there is no downtime but for some people who are sensitive there can be some pinkness and irritation immediately after treatment.
