Dermaplaning is a low risk skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to remove the dead skin cells and hair from your face and helps reduce the appearance fine lines and wrinkles as well as deep acne scarring. Dermaplaning is a great procedure for clients with dull skin, dry, skin, sun damaged skin, fine lines/wrinkles and acne scars. The procedure is safe for most people and requires no downtime. Following treatment the skin looks more youthful, smooth and bright. The results last up to 3 weeks. Individual results vary from client to client. Schedule an appointment or consultation today.
Who is a good candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is safe for virtually everyone. However, you should avoid it if you have a tan, sunburn, active acne, a flaring rosacea breakout, or an inflammatory skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis.
What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning leaves you with slightly brighter, smoother skin by scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and excess oils with a scalpel. The deep exfoliation treatment can remove up to two weeks of dead skin, and the results last about three weeks. Aside from helping you get very soft skin, dermaplaning also smooths out uneven skin texture and gives you a smoother base for your foundation and makeup.
How does Dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning and shaving your face are very similar, but the main difference is that dermaplaning (again, performed by a licensed professional) delivers a more thorough exfoliation.
What should I expect before and after my Dermaplaning treatment?
At the appointment, the clinician will gently pull your skin tightly and lightly glide the blade in an upward motion using delicate, feathering strokes. A dermaplaning treatment usually takes under 30 minutes and can be done as a stand-alone option or as a part of a facial. It’s best to avoid exfoliating your skin 3 days before. You should also try to avoid direct sunlight or tanning. There’s no downtime needed to let your skin heal. Experts recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a moisturizer afterward. That’s because your skin may be more sensitive. While results certainly aren’t permanent, you can expect them to last anywhere from two weeks to a month. You can do dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks.
