However, if you are taking anti -coagulants, have fragile capillaries, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis, lupus, or an active skin condition like rosacea, herpetic lesions, severe warts, or dermatitis, microdermabrasion may not be the ideal choice.
Microdermabrasion involves the use of microscopic particles to gently abrade the skin's dermal layer. It delivers a cleansing effect that falls between a standard facial and a deep chemical peel. The procedure is robust, and to safeguard the integrity of your skin, Luxe Day Spa Soho recommends waiting at least two weeks, ideally three, if you've recently undergone microdermabrasion.
While microdermabrasion is gentle enough for lip exfoliation, it's sufficiently potent to affect sensitive skin resulting from medical conditions, medications, or prior treatments.
For individuals with suitable skin types, microdermabrasion can produce remarkable results, particularly for concerns such as acne and acne scars, enlarged pores, clogged pores, stretch marks, blemishes, fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, blackheads, discolored patches, and imbalances in skin oiliness and dryness.
Moreover, microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of your skin. This means that within a week or two following the procedure, you may notice a revitalized, firmer, and smoother complexion.

Dermaplaning is a highly effective treatment designed to eliminate excess fine hairs that often trap dirt, oil, and dead skin cells within your pores, contributing to acne and blemishes. The result? Skin that appears brighter, healthier, and exceptionally smooth, often described as the coveted "baby smooth" look and feel. Dermaplaning is performed using a scalpel to meticulously remove peach fuzz and provide a gentle exfoliation of the skin's surface. This innovative procedure delivers remarkable outcomes, promoting a radiant and revitalized complexion.
Dermaplaning delivers a spectrum of benefits, enhancing your skin's health and appearance in several ways. This treatment not only imparts a brighter complexion but also augments the absorption of topical products. This effect leads to the immediate reduction of fine lines and wrinkles, making your skin an ideal canvas for chemical peels, which can penetrate deeper for more impactful results. Facials similarly benefit from this enhanced penetration, ensuring that products seep deeper into your skin.
Dermaplaning boasts numerous advantages, including the removal of vellus hairs, also known as soft, fine baby hairs. Eliminating vellus hairs results in smoother skin, creating a healthier and more radiant appearance.
This treatment typically encompasses the face, chin, and neck areas. The process begins with a thorough cleansing of these regions. A skilled skincare aesthetician then employs a 10-gauge scalpel, holding it at a 45-degree angle, to gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells.
Following the treatment, a hydrating or moisturizing mask is applied to the treated area. The immediate results leave your skin looking radiant, sporting an even tone and improved texture. You'll be thrilled to find that all your peach fuzz is gone, leaving your skin incredibly soft, as noted by first-time recipients.
Dermaplaning boasts zero side effects and no downtime. However, your skin becomes highly sensitive to sun exposure post-treatment and may appear pink. It's essential to protect your skin by wearing broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to mitigate the risk of hyperpigmentation.
To maintain a luminous, healthy complexion and capitalize on Dermaplaning's full range of benefits, it's advisable to schedule this treatment every three to four weeks. Each session effectively removes approximately two to three weeks' worth of dead skin cells.
Except when open sores or blemishes are present. In such cases, it's best to wait until these issues clear up.
Moreover, Dermaplaning is an excellent choice for individuals with various skin conditions, such as acne scars, dry or oily skin, or excessive hair growth (hirsute). This procedure is particularly safe for pregnant or nursing women, seeking exfoliation without exposing themselves or their unborn child to potentially harmful chemicals.
