At its most basic description, it is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle to remove keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine, vellus hair (a.k.a. peach fuzz).
Dermaplaning allows professional practitioners to target very specific and defined areas, and provides precise control of the exfoliating process, stroke by stroke. It is safe for all skin types and clients, even those with extremely sensitive skin or conditions such as rosacea, making it a great alternative for skin that is irritated by other methods of exfoliation. There is little to no pain and discomfort involved in treatment, and no recovery time necessary.
Dermaplaning is a “controlled-trauma” treatment. The body reacts to this treatment by stimulating its interior emergency repair system (prompting increased circulation, more oxygen, additional nutrients and new cell stimulation) while allowing the trained professional to topically deliver antioxidants, peptides, growth factors, moisturizers and other vital nutrients to the fresh, newly exposed skin cells. The treatment stimulates normal shedding of the stratum corneum, removes skin flaws and helps reduce fine lines, wrinkles, milia and congested pores.
During the reZENerate nanofacial, the Rezenerate Wand is used to aid in the delivery of ingredients past the stratum corneum which helps improve your skin's own ability to function and regenerate properly. Collagen producing cells are given a boost which softens fine lines and wrinkles, decreases pigmentation due to scaring and/or photo-damage, improves overall skin health, and increases circulation which helps in lifting and firming damaged skin. Rezenerate’s advanced nanotechnology system delivers products safely and comfortably into the skin and is perfect for those who want fast results that require little downtime.
The Rezenerate Wand is a handheld skin conditioning tool that uses disposable, one time use only cartridges topped with a specially designed silicon chip. The chip has an array of 49 microscopic pyramids etched into it. Each pyramid has a diameter of one third that of a human hair, the tip of the pyramid is 1/10,000 the diameter of a human hair. The Rezenerate Wand is a professional use only tool for estheticians and other licensed skincare professionals.
