Pumpkin Planing – Dermalplaning Fall Facial Seattle  

With a change in weather comes a change in your skin. Oftentimes, cold weather begins to dry out our skin, and we spend less time out in the sun, getting helpful vitamin D. Although the sun can be damaging to the skin, it can also provide helpful nutrients when the skin is cared for correctly. With less vitamin D, harsh weather, and a drop in temperature, our skin can become dry, flaky, and itchy. 

Seattle Plastic Surgery has the perfect solution to restore moisture, even texture, and softness to your skin. Their “Pumpkin Planing,” or dermaplaning fall facial, adds enzymes and antioxidants into a dermaplaning treatment to give patients a warm glow. 

What Is Pumpkin Planing? 

To understand how pumpkin planing prepares the skin for a shift in the seasons, we must first look at what can happen to the skin in colder weather. First, the skin can become dry and flaky due to the lack of heat and moisture in the air. Once the skin is too dry, it can begin overproducing oil, creating build-up and severe breakouts for many patients. However, the pumpkin planing facial doesn’t just treat dry and flaky skin. It works to retexturize thick, resilient skin, fight stubborn acne, and correct sun damage. It achieves this through four specific treatments with added nutrients in between.

    Key Ingredients In Pumpkin Planing 

    Many ingredients in a dermaplaning fall facial make it essential for preparing for a temperature change. At Seattle Plastic Surgery, the providers know the proper balance of enzymes, acids, and toners to create deep hydration and clear skin. Some of these ingredients include: 

    • Pumpkin: Pumpkin enzymes mixed with alpha hydroxy acids exfoliate the skin, getting rid of the dry surface 
    • Salicylic Acid: This beta hydroxy acid calms the skin and provides a clear complexion 
    • Lactic Acid: Another alpha hydroxy acid that opens the pores to allow for easier exfoliation and helps correct hyperpigmentation 
    • Gluconic Acid: A poly hydroxy acid that that enriches hydration, soothes the skin, and adds clarity 
    • Glutathione: An antioxidant that protects the skin’s barrier and brightens the complexion

    1. Dermaplaning, Seattle 

    Pumpkin planing facial patients in Seattle will be given a pre-cleanse, a second cleanse, and a smoothing toner before dermaplaning. The pre-cleanse will remove the surface debris left on the skin. The second cleanse eliminates the oil build-up that can come from the dryer weather. And the smoothing toner will prep the skin for the dermaplaning treatment. 

    Once these treatments have been administered, the master esthetician begins the dermaplaning treatment. Dermaplaning gently scrapes a thin layer of skin off the face, removing peach fuzz, dead skin, and any build-up. While dermaplaning is a significant benefit on its own, when combined with the pumpkin facial, it provides added nutrients and moisture to the skin, as it allows the treatments to reach deeper layers.  

    2. Pumpkin Nutrients & Hydration 

    After the dermalplaning is complete, the provider will apply a cleansing oil and detoxifier if the skin needs it. They will use a nutrient toner to prepare the skin for the pumpkin treatments to ensure the face is fully clean and dry. Then, they will lather the face with the pumpkin mask, sometimes using steam to open the pores further. An additional oat milk mask and nutrient toner will be applied afterward, as this provides additional hydration.

    3. Enzyme Treatment  

    The enzyme treatment exfoliates the skin, leaving it with a silky, even texture. It is applied like a mask and gently massaged into the skin for three to five minutes. After the enzymes are fully massaged into the skin, another nutrient-rich toner is applied to clean and enrich the skin. 

    4. Correcting Serums 

    The final step in a Seattle pumpkin planing facial uses a series of revitalizing gels and serums to lock in hydration, fight signs of aging, even texture, and add a glow to the skin. The serums used include: 

      • Revitalizing Eye Gel: To promote bright, healthy under eyes 
      • Rejuvenating Serum: Fights signs of aging and protects the skin’s barrier with plant stem cells and growth factors 
    • Resurfacing Serum: Balances texture, evens the tone, and clarifies the skin 
    • Brightening Serum: Uses Vitamin B3 to provide a firm and bright complexion 
    • Clear Skin & Hydrator: Uses a serum with SPF 30 to apply additional hydration and protection
