When Should You Start Preparing for Prom/Graduation?

Now is the prime time to begin your prep. Starting now allows ample time for treatments to work their magic, ensuring you achieve your desired results. Early preparation is not just about timing; it’s strategic, allowing treatment adjustments and adherence to any necessary post-care. By embarking on your journey in the early months of the year, you’re setting yourself up for success, ensuring you enter the season with glowing skin.

5 Treatments to Get You Prom/Graduation-Ready

Now is the time to focus on treatments that enhance your appearance and get your skin glowing for the big night. Bryn Mawr Dermatology offers several options to prepare you for the big day:

1. Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning, also known as dermal planing , is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment that involves using a surgical scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the skin’s surface. This procedure helps to reveal smoother, brighter skin by promoting cell turnover and enhancing the absorption of skincare products. It also prepares your skin for perfectly smooth makeup application. Dermal planing is suitable for all skin types and can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven texture, leaving the skin soft and radiant. 

2. SkinPen

SkinPen, also known as microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries in the skin. These micro-injuries stimulate the body’s natural healing process, increasing collagen and elastin production. SkinPen can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, and overall skin texture. It is a versatile treatment suitable for various skin types and can be used on the face, neck, décolletage, and other areas of concern. 

3. Laser Genesis

 Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser treatment that targets common skin concerns such as redness, enlarged pores, uneven texture, and fine lines. This gentle laser therapy works by heating the upper dermis to stimulate collagen production and promote cellular turnover, resulting in smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin. Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types and requires no downtime, making it an excellent option for individuals seeking to improve their skin’s overall appearance without discomfort or extended recovery periods. 

4. Clear Package

The Clear Package is a BMD-devised, comprehensive skincare program to target acne-prone skin and minimize breakouts. It may include a combination of treatments such as chemical peels, extractions, LED therapy, and specialized skincare products formulated to control oil production, reduce inflammation, unclog pores, and promote skin healing. The Clear Package is customized to address the unique needs of each individual and is often recommended for those seeking clearer, healthier skin and improved self-confidence. 

5. Clinical Skincare Regimen

 A clinical skincare regimen involves using medical-grade skincare products formulated with potent active ingredients to address specific skin concerns. These products are typically prescribed or recommended by dermatologists or skin care professionals and may include cleansers, exfoliants, serums, moisturizers, and sunscreens tailored to individual needs. A clinical skincare regime aims to improve skin health, target specific concerns such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or aging, and maintain long-term results through consistent use. 

Each of these treatments is designed to prep, tighten, and rejuvenate your appearance, leveraging the latest dermatological science to prepare you for a great night. With options to address many concerns, Bryn Mawr Dermatology is ready to help you achieve your skin goals.

How to Choose Between These 5 Dermatology Services?

Each treatment aims to focus on a specific portion of your skin health, and each works in different ways and at a different pace. When you visit one of our offices in Villanova, Collegeville, or Chesterbrook, PA for your complimentary consultation, one of our Licensed Aestheticians can help you decide which option(s) will best address your concerns. They can also help you design your skin care journey based on your budget, and the time you have until the big night.

If you are looking for a treatment that instantly makes your skin look smoother, and enhances your cheekbones and jawline, dermaplaning is an awesome option since it exfoliates skin to reveal a fresh, hydrated face. The removal of peach fuzz also creates a smooth surface that is the perfect canvas to apply your makeup look. If you have scarring, fine lines, or an uneven complexion that is more than skin deep, microneedling with Ski Pen is a great option for significant long-term results. SkinPen treatment uses microneedling to stimulate collagen production, and consists of five treatments spaced four weeks apart to ensure the very best, cumulative, results. It can help achieve a smoother, more even complexion, ensuring your skin looks its best on the big night. 

If you’re looking to target redness, large pores, or uneven skin tone, Laser Genesis could be the right choice. This non-invasive laser treatment stimulates collagen production, minimizes pores, and evens skin tone for a more luminous complexion with absolutely no down time. Designed for those dealing with acne or post-acne pigmentation and scarring, the Clear Package includes a comprehensive treatment to help calm active acne and fade the residual signs of previous break outs. The Licensed Aestheticians at Bryn Mawr Dermatology will assess your skin and customize a treatment to extract stubborn black/whiteheads, chemically exfoliate skin to reduce sebum and buildup that leads to future breakouts, and suggest some aftercare products to protect skin and improve skin texture. 

You can think about a good skin care regimen as “daily homework” to enhance and retain healthy skin. The experts at BMD will devise a tailored set of instructions that can contain anywhere from two to six skin care products which have all been vetted by our board-certified dermatologists. The general concept, no matter what type of skin you have, is to (1) Cleanse, (2) Treat, (3) Moisturize, and (4) Protect.  If you’re curious about your skin type, take our quiz! Adding in a skin care regimen provides a comprehensive approach to address various skin issues, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or dryness, leading up to the eventt.

Why Should You Get These Treatments Ahead of The Big Day?

Planning ahead before any big event, including proms, graduations, birthdays, etc can help you achieve your best skin, ensuring you look and feel confident on your special night. These treatments require forethought and often repeat sessions to see optimal results. Oftentimes a combination of treatments and skin care products are the ideal solution, so it’s best to start your journey towards glowing skin at least a few months in advance. Dermplaning, SkinPen, and Laser Genesis treatments can address various skin concerns such as acne, uneven texture, and dullness, leaving your skin smoother, firmer, and more radiant.

The Clear Package offers a comprehensive approach to target acne and promote clearer, healthier skin in time for your event.
