Use Dermaplaning for Reducing Acne Scars

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz)

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

The results can vary for everyone, but realistically, you can expect to see smoother skin, zero peach fuzz (until it grows back, of course), and slightly brighter-looking skin. And, because you’re removing all your dead skin cells, your skincare products will better penetrate your skin when you apply them, boosting the effects of them.

What are the side effects of Dermaplaning?

In the hands of a professional, dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, especially those with sun damage, fine lines, dry patches, and dull skin. But, of course, there are caveats: If you have highly reactive, sensitive skin (like those with rosacea), you may want to pass on this one, since it might irritate your skin. Same goes for anyone with inflamed acne. The treated skin may appear as slightly pink or red color that will disappear in a day or two.  A very aggressive treatment may cause mild flaking of the skin that will last up to one week.

What is the recovery after Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a quick, effective procedure that normally takes 45 minutes to complete. It is recommended that patients space treatments approximately two to four weeks apart for the best results. There is typically no recovery or down time with this treatment.

Does Dermaplaning hurt?

This treatment does not hurt.

Will dermaplaning cause breakouts?

Quite the opposite.  A buildup of dead skin can clog your pores and hair follicles, which can not only cause pimples but also block your skincare products from penetrating the skin, which is why exfoliation is essential for maintaining an even, healthy glow. But, if you already have an existing breakout, you’ll unfortunately need to sit this treatment out.

Covid-19 Update- New Strict Guidelines

 

First and most importantly, we hope that you and your loved ones have remained safe and healthy during this COVID-19 pandemic.  Your well-being and safety are extremely important to us, as is the health and safety of our staff.   

 

We will be re-opening for business on May 18thWe are taking extra precautionary measures to ensure that we provide and maintain the safest environment as we come together again.  The staff at Laser Beauty Works will follow all new, extremely strict protocols to ensure the safety of our team, our incredible clients and our community.  

 

Outlined are the guidelines which ALL clients must follow until further notice:  

 

PLEASE READ THIS IN IT’S ENTIRETY!!! 

 

We strongly advise immunocompromised, at risk and vulnerable clients to really consider your risks before scheduling an appointment in order to reduce your exposure to COVID-19 and any other major health-related illnesses during this crucial time. 

 

We ask that if you are experiencing any illness or symptoms (fever, coughing, flu-like symptoms, sore throat, etc) or have been in contact with someone who has COVID-19to please reschedule your appointment. 

 

It is mandatory for ALL clients to wear a face mask at all times.  If you do not have a face mask on before entering, we will refuse service and you will need to call and reschedule your appointment.  

 

In order to follow occupancy regulations, there will be no reception seating available.  We ask that you please arrive to your appointment at your exact appointment time - not earlier or later. There will be no exceptions! In order to do this, we recommend that you arrive early and wait in your car until your appointment time to come up. Please do not bring anyone else with you.   

 

We ask that all clients wash their hands for a minimum of 20 seconds in the hallway restroom before entering our business space.  We will also provide hand sanitizer in all the treatment rooms for you to use before your treatment. 

 

No cell phones, electronic devices or laptops.  We also kindly ask that you do not bring in any outside food or drinks.  Our lounge/reception area will be closed until further notice so we will not be able to provide you with any complimentary water at this time. Our apologies in advance. 

 

Upon arrival, you will be asked to sign a COVID-19 Consent in order to be treated.  If you do not agree to sign this, you will not be treated. We will be taking everyone’s temperature with a device that is held close to your forehead and will read your temperature immediately. If you have a fever, you will be asked to leave and reschedule. All staff members will also have their temperaturetaken before each shift.  

 

If you arrive at your appointment showing any visible signs of illness (ex: cough, fever, shortness of breath), even while wearing a face mask, you will be turned away and you will need to reschedule when healthy.  

 

Our “No Show/ No Call Cancellation Policy will still apply to all appointments. 

 

We are following all COVID-19 Health and Safety guidelines from the CDC and DORA (Colorado Dept of Regulatory Division of Professions and Occupations).  Each room will be sanitized after each client to ensure your safety.  We have extended our in-between treatment times to ensure plenty of time for this. 

 

Please understand that we may not be able to perform any face treatments that would require you to remove your face mask.  We are still waiting for a confirmation from DORA as to when we can lift this restriction.  We will be updating you on this as soon as we know. 

 

As a further precaution, we will not be accepting any cash payments as a payment method for services or gratuity.  According to the World Health Organization, cash could be contributing to the spread of the coronavirus and contactless payments are strongly advised.  We will be accepting both debit and credit cards for payment and Venmo as a preferred method of gratuity. 

 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.  We appreciate all of you very much and we look forward to seeing you soon! 

 

Leanne, Melissa and the team at Laser Beauty Works!
