There are two procedures that are classified as medical procedures that should be practiced under the supervision of licensed medical doctors. When you select services from a medical spa, the procedures are far more beneficial and safer when done by a physician or an aesthetician under a physician’s care. Under the guidance of a medical expert, patients can avoid infections, excessive scarring and other negative consequences. Today, we at Skin & Body Refinery would like to further elaborate to ensure the safety of our friends and neighbors in Greater Waco, TX.

You Need a Medical Expert for Microneedling & Dermaplaning Treatments

Seeing a medical expert at a fully licensed and insured medical spa, such as Skin and Body Refinery performs the procedures with safety. Our medical team can identify if treatments or products are reacting poorly to your chemistry for instance. Our experts can provide medical treatments. The physician can provide exceptional treatment options if you are dealing with severe acne that isn’t clearing up after a couple months of over-the-counter treatments. Medical treatments ensure the procedure is healthy for your skin before scheduling a procedure such as microneedling and dermaplaning.

Professional Medical Microneedling

Microneedling is a procedure that should not be put in the hands of a non professional who is not authorized to affect or treat live tissue. Microneedling treats the areas of live tissue below the epidermis. There are a few procedures that are better left to the med spa physicians, and microneedling is definitely one of them. Professional microneedling involves longer needles than you would find in over the counter DIY kits. These longer needles can be dangerous in amateur hands that don’t have the proper medical supervision. In addition, incorrect microneedling can be risky as the needling procedure can introduce or spread bacteria into the skin. The risk of infection is especially high if not properly trained and licensed. Professional microneedling minimizes this risk as professionals use sterilized tools in a sterile environment.

Dermaplaning Procedure

Using an implement similar to a blade or scalpel to exfoliate the skin dermaplaning, also known as dermablading, is much better undertaken by a licensed physician. Dermaplaning involves precision and as this procedure is performed with surgical scalpels and not your average razor, you should leave it to the professionals to avoid nicks, ingrown hairs, stubble and injury.
