When used consistently, over time, LED lights are thought to penetrate your skin at different depths and cause various reactions in your skin, such as fighting acne-causing bacteria, plumping skin and reducing wrinkles,” says Los Angeles-based dermatologist Dr. Annie Chiu, who tells me that the most common LED lights for skin care are blue and red, though pink and white exist as well. “Blue light kills bacteria that causes acne and red stimulates collagen production and helps speed skin’s natural healing process,” she explains. This makes it a great option for anyone who wants to brighten up dark spots. White light, which is often found only in in-office treatments, is thought to penetrate the deepest to tighten and reduce inflammation.
WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Manual exfoliation by a licensed dermatologist or esthetician is performed using a dermatome, a specialized surgical blade that safely and effectively removes the uppermost layer of the skin, specifically dead skin cells that have accumulated over time. The consequences of leaving useless, old skin cells on facial skin is skin that appears dull, blemished and aged. However, dermaplaning your skin allows fresh, new skin cells to exude their healthy glow so that your face feels clean and looks dramatically invigorated.
About the Dermaplaning Process
Also referred to as “blading” or “leveling the skin”, dermaplaning is performed at Mayoral Dermatology as an outpatient procedure that generally takes about 30 minutes to complete. Dermaplaning is painless and involves one of our specialists holding a dermatome at a 45 degree angle against your skin in order to gently stroke your skin to remove only the epidermal layer. In fact, it looks and feels like someone is simply giving your a professional shave! Patients are never cut and no bandages or ointments are necessary following the procedure.
Hair Removal and Acne Scarring
People who wish to have facial “fuzz” removed or suffer from minor acne scars will find dermaplaning to be an ideal technique for improving these conditions. Waxing and tweezing unwanted hair away is painful and often leaves skin irritated, red and bumpy. Dermaplaning is a painless alternative to these less than pleasant hair removal procedures. Additionally, the appearance of acne scars that have not recessed into the dermal layer of the skin can be reduced by the action of the dermatome sloughing off dead skin cells that exacerbate the visibility of these types of scars.
What else may Dermaplaning be used for?
Depending on the severity of a person’s skin condition, dermplaning may also be able to improve the appearance of skin discolorations, fine lines, excessively dry, coarse skin and large pores. Essentially, dermaplaning is an effective skin rejuvenation technique that can give you smoother, clearer and younger-looking skin by diminishing the unattractiveness of a variety of minor skin conditions.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
No chemicals are applied to your skin• Generally takes less than 30 minutes• Results are visible immediately after a dermaplaning session• Complexion is not swollen or red• Can help unclog blackheads and whiteheads• Stimulates growth of new skin cells• Promotes absorption of skin products you use at home
Facial hair that is removed by dermaplaning does not grow back thicker because it is vellous hair. Vellous hairs are translucent, whitish-colored hairs that always return in the same condition that they originally sprouted. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back differently, whether it is facial “fuzz”, eyebrows or underarm hair.

Microneedling with PRP- Vampire Facial
How Is MicroPen® Different From Dermal Needling Rollers?
Automated micro-needling devices move in a vertical direction for better precision when treating the skin. Unlike Automated Micro-needling the roller does not create a precise vertical action.
The lack of precision can contribute to greater discomfort and inconsistent effects to the skin.
How Is MicroPen® Different From Lasers?
No heat also equals less downtime! Most Eclipse MicroPen® patients are red for 24 hours or less. That advantage means you can get the procedure performed on a Friday and be back to normal for work on Monday.
How Is The Procedure Done?
A sterile applicator containing 12 tiny micro-points is attached to the Eclipse MicroPen®. Your skincare professional will apply a thin layer of saline solution to your skin and select the appropriate treatment setting based on your unique needs.
Next, in a single motion, the pen will be gently pressed against the skin while simultaneously gliding until the entire treatment area has been covered.

Juvederm® is in an injectable dermal filler treatment that delivers hyaluronic acid (HA) to skin cells to assist them in retaining precious moisture. Unlike other dermal fillers, Juvederm® does not directly remove lines and wrinkles, but instead increase fullness and volume in the skin to make lines, wrinkles, and creases naturally soften and smooth out.
The hyaluronic acid in Juvederm® is similar to that which occurs naturally in your skin, and naturally binds with water to maintain smooth, voluminous skin thanks to increased natural hydration. As we age, our bodies produce less HA, reducing the amount of hydration to our skin cells. To eradicate wrinkles, lines and creases around our mouths, noses, and other features, Juvederm® is a safe and effective treatment that is easily absorbed by the human body.

MICRONEEDLING WITH PRF/PRP
What is Microneedling with PRF?
This process is quite similar to Microneedling with PRP, in that our nurses use a device containing hundreds of ultra-fine needles to create micro-punctures in the skin. This tricks your body into speeding up the healing process, and leaving you with glowing, even, and youthful skin. The main difference with this procedure, however, is that PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin) from your own blood is injected into the controlled injuries to nourish the cells and deliver even better results. It’s still a vampire facial, just with different substances extracted from your blood. Microneedling with PRF Benefits Even skin tone and texture Reduction in broken capillaries and/or spider veins Improves the appearance of acne scars Smaller pores Glowing complexion Reduction in fine lines and wrinkles Skin that feels rejuvenated and firm
