What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique in which a trained practitioner uses a medical scalpel to precisely remove the outermost layers of your skin. While the procedure might sound intimidating, it is a safe, effective treatment option with virtually no risk of adverse effects.
Am I a candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a great treatment option for men and women who have dry or roughly textured skin. It can also be good for those with mature skin, as dead skin cells tend to accumulate faster as you age. It is a great treatment for expectant or breastfeeding mothers who may not be able to pursue other aesthetic procedures.
This treatment is not right for everyone, however. If any of these conditions apply, you may want to explore other treatment options:
- Very oily skin
- Active acne breakouts
- Significant facial hair
How can I enhance the results of dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning reveals a layer of fresh, healthy skin cells, and incorporating other skin care treatments after dermaplaning can boost the effects. For example, a light chemical peel can deliver even more impressive results when applied immediately after dermaplaning.
Discuss your skin care history and treatment goals with your practitioner before moving forward with any treatment option. Many aesthetics treatments can be combined or performed in a certain order to facilitate optimal results and give you a greater value for your investment.
The dermaplaning procedure is not painful at all. In fact, the sensation you will experience is similar to shaving a part of your body.
You will likely notice that your skin appears brighter immediately following the dermaplaning treatment. However, the full results of the treatment may take 3-6 days to appear.
There is no downtime following a dermaplaning treatment.
Yes, dermaplaning is very safe when performed by a trained provider.
