Dermaplaning Chicago

Dermaplaning is a blade technique performed by a medical aesthetician. A 10 gauge scalpel is used to remove the top layer of the skin. The dulling, dead skin cells peel away to reveal a smoother complexion. It might sound scary, but it isn’t. In the right hands, the process can be pain-free and almost therapeutic.

Many Hollywood actresses and other on-screen celebrities are advocates for dermaplaning. Not only does it smooth the skin, but it also removes peach fuzz. Tiny amounts of hair on the face can show up on high-resolution cameras and can make it harder to apply makeup. The dead skin comes off as well as the hair, making makeup glide across the skin. It also enhances the absorption rate of moisturizing skin care products for the face. Cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning as a pre-requisite for other skin care techniques. Chemical peels are more effective after dermaplaning. The topical products we use are also more effective because the skin is smoother and absorbs the formula better.

Dermaplaning vs Microdermabrasion

 
Both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are forms of physical exfoliation. There are differences between the two. During microdermabrasion, an automatic tool is used to sand the skin and vacuum the dead skin cells. This can also help to clean out clogged pores around the nose, mouth, and chin. Dermaplaning does not use an automatic tool. A surgical scalpel and a steady hand are used to remove the top layer of the skin. Dermaplaning tends to be a better solution for dry skin and removal of peach fuzz. Most of the time the choice comes down to personal preference.

I want to thank Dr. Gutowski for everything he has done for me. It took me a while to make the decision to have liposuction; I guess it was the usual concerns of having something go wrong. It took me another 6 months to find the right doctor. After reading reviews online, I finally selected Dr. Gutowski and have never regretted the decision; all of the positive reviews were true.When I met Dr. Gutowski and told him I was looking to have liposuction to reduce the love handles I have had since I was 18 years old despite being an avid runner, I was given a couple of options that would work for me. I never felt pressured to choose an option that I was not comfortable with and when we discussed what I could expect in terms of results; Dr. Gutowski was spot on. Everything I was told I would experience during the healing process to the results was true. My expectations were always met, it was amazing. For the first time in my life, I have no second thoughts with taking my shirt off while running outside. The actual procedure was not as painful as I anticipated, I was awake the entire time during my procedure, which gave me the opportunity to have a conversation with Dr. Gutowski and his staff reaffirming his genuine honesty, professionalism, and skilled attributes.After having such a wonderful experience with Dr. Gutowski, I know I will go to him again in the near future and would not hesitate to recommend him and his staff to my friends or family. I will always be grateful for this life changing experience.James
