This time of year can be the harshest on your skin; not only can it cause your skin to become red, dry, and irritated, but it can also make it feel rough to the touch as well. In order to restore the moisture to your skin, you can make simply changes to your lifestyle like drinking eight 8-ounce glasses of water everyday. However, you can also come into Dr. Toni Stockton to get microplaning done as well. So, what is microplaning and how does it work? This article will hopefully answer all of your dermaplaning questions. Read on to learn more.
What is Microplaning?
Microplaning is a facial procedure that includes a combination of cleansing, exfoliation, nourishing, and hydration. By combining a mild chemical and blading, vitamins and nutrients will work to deeply penetrate into the skin. Lasting about one hour, there are no real side-effects to this treatment which means that you won’t have to worry about any sort of recovery. Once you come into Dr. Toni Stockton’s office, a surgical scalpel will be used to scrape away the top few layers of the skin— helping to get rid of sun damage, dryness, and pigmentation.
Although Dr. Toni Stockton offers other facial procedures like microdermabrasion to help rejuvenate and nourish your skin, microplaning is particularly popular amongst our patients because it doesn’t involve any sort of peeling afterward. Additionally, if you have particularly sensitive skin, things like microdermabrasion and chemical peels may be too harsh for your skin type.
Sometimes your skin just needs an extra boost of nourishment in order to get through the winter. Get rid of your dry skin by coming into Stockton Dermatology and getting microplaning done. Microplaning is a safe, easy, and effective procedure that can be done directly in our Stockton Dermatology office.
