What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a skin procedure that involves using a sharp tool to exfoliate the surface of your skin, while also removing small, fine hairs. Basically, a small scalpel will gently scrape the surface of your skin using light, feathering strokes.
What are the benefits?
Dermaplaning’s purpose is to give your skin an immediate exfoliation for a luminous glow that lasts a week.
The benefits are dewy skin, faster cell turnover, and a smoother texture & your make-up will look better on your skin and lasts longer.
A new treatment is now available: the Hollywood Carbon Laser Peel.
Stars like Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston or Angelina Jolie are already fans.
First of all, a black carbon mask is applied to the skin and then removed by a carbon filter.
The carbon peeling is suitable for a wide range of skin problems and refines the entire skin texture in the long run. The treatment is almost painless.
Especially in the winter time we should do certain aesthetic procedures as well as cosmetic treatments, because these treatments make our skin more sensitive to the sun.
So let's take advantage of the cold months to start the spring in an especially beautiful way!
We spend a large amount of time thinking about our facial skin. But how much do we give to the skin right below it? Staring at your computer the whole day or scrolling through your Instagram feed all night can cause a double chin, jowls, sagging skin, marionette lines, and other signs of aging.
Also, these devices emit blue light - that exposure can lead to additional skin damage like hyperpigmentation and crepiness.
THERE IS NO RIGHT OR WRONG TIME TO START
There is no right or wrong time to begin treatment. If you are interested and, in a position, to start early, neurotoxin injections can potentially have a preventative effect. Botox is a wonderful tool to use in small amounts to prevent wrinkles from ever starting. Patients in their twenties and thirties will need less product than someone in their forties or fifties, but everyone will see results.
Life looks and feels different at every age—and so does your skin. Here’s a glance at what a skin care regimen should include in your teens, 20s, 30s, 40s and beyond if you are a skin minimalist – selected by Dr. Timm Golüke
IN YOUR TEENS
AM: Use sunscreen
PM: Wash your face
Studies show that the sun’s UV radiation causes 90% of skin aging. It’s never too early to start protecting your skin and a great habit to start young.
Also non-negotiable: Washing your face before bed to get rid of dirt, sweat, pollution and maybe make-up.
What are age spots?
Age spots are tan, light brown, or dark brown spots that come in areas of sun exposure and get darker with sun exposure over time.
The name is a bit of a misnomer as they can show up early—like in your late teens or 20s—but you do get more over time.
What causes age spots?
They are a mixture of genetics and sun exposure, which explains why they appear in areas of sun exposure and get darker with sun exposure over time.
Age spots are related to cumulative sun exposure, or the total amount of sun exposure over a lifetime.
Hyperpigmentation is a skin condition that causes dark patches or spots to appear on the skin. This darkening is due to excess production of melanin. Dr. Timm shows you which ingredients can help to lighten those dark spots.
“Vitamin C blocks tyrosinase, an enzyme your body uses to produce melanin and is also a potent antioxidant, which means it protects skin cells from further damage either from the sun or outside pollutants.”
