Announcing New Service – Dermaplaning


SPA LUX announces new service, Dermaplanning, which will expand facial services offered to clients in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure performed by a licensed professional. This particular treatment removes dead skin cells, resulting in healthier, brighter skin.

Dermaplaning requires the use of a scalpel – an aesthetician gently shaves the face, removing the top-most layer of dead skin along with vellus hair (peach fuzz). This exclusive treatment is beneficial for all skin types.

Here are the many benefits of Dermaplaning:

 

 

Your Skin Will Look and Feel Refreshed

From air pollution to makeup, your face builds up a layer of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning helps remove dirt and oil accumulation from the excess of fine hairs. Once the top layer of the skin is removed, your skin will have a shiny, healthy glow.

The procedure can also minimize superficial acne scarring, uneven skin tone, and diminishes the look of fine lines. If you have an active breakout, we recommend you wait until the breakout subsides until you schedule an appointment.

The Procedure is Quick

Dermaplaning is a quick treatment. The service is performed in under 30 minutes and there is no downtime post-treatment. Appointments can be scheduled during a lunch break or even a quick visit before work.

Makeup Application

After the procedure, you will notice applying makeup becomes smoother on your face. The removal of fine hairs allows makeup products to penetrate the skin deeper. Dermaplaning results can last up to three to four weeks – it is recommended to schedule appointments monthly.

Sun Protection

Removing the top-most layer of the skin removes a barrier to protect your skin from the sun. We recommend using SPF after the treatment. Your face will be extremely susceptible to the sun.

Microdermabrasion vs. Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a less evasive procedure than microdermabrasion. Microdermabrasion uses crystals and vacuum suction to exfoliate the skin. The vacuum suction loosens the skin cells from the face, leaving your skin feeling smoother. Dermaplaning leaves the face with a natural glow by removing facial hair – something microdermabrasion cannot do.

Appointments can be booked online or by calling us at 918-615-3339.
