What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin resurfacing technique that skims away the top layer of skin and fine vellus hair, or peach fuzz. This procedure exfoliates the skin and removes the fine hair that can trap oil and dirt in the follicles. Dermaplaning has been used for many years as a painless, chemical-free way to polish and resurface the topmost layer of the skin.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is an excellent option for patients who have sensitive skin or an aversion to chemical peels and procedures. It is also a great option for pregnant women who cannot be exposed to chemicals. Additionally, there is no downtime and the procedure is painless. The dermaplaning procedure is relatively short and leaves your skin polished without any redness or swelling afterward.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Dermaplaning is often used as a skin prepping treatment before more advanced procedures treatments like laser skin resurfacing. By using a laser, our experienced estheticians can help reduce the appearance of a number of unwanted skin blemishes and conditions, including rough or dull texture, wrinkles and fine lines, hyperpigmentation, scarring and damage, sun spots and more.
Is Dermaplaning Right For Me?
Almost anyone can enjoy the rejuvenation benefits of dermaplaning. If you wish to exfoliate your skin and gently remove peach fuzz and rough skin, dermaplaning may be for you. A consultation with Dr. Wallace can help you determine if you are a candidate for dermaplaning.
However, dermaplaning is not recommended for people with skin problems such as rosacea, eczema, acne, psoriasis, or sunburns. It should also be postponed for people currently taking isotretinoin, a prescription for acne. Those using this medication should stop taking it for 6 months before coming in for dermaplaning.
What Can I Expect from My Dermaplaning Consultation?
A consultation is necessary to determine whether dermaplaning is right for your aesthetic goals. We will evaluate your skin, including skin type and tone, and look over your complete medical history.
We will discuss how much it will cost you to get the dermaplane treatment and what you will need to do to prepare for the session. We will also go over aftercare steps.
What Can I Expect From the Dermaplaning Procedure?
The dermaplaning procedure is a fast and easy procedure that utilizes a scalpel and a soft touch to gently rid the skin of any impurities on the upmost layer. The procedure usually lasts around 30 minutes to one hour, and results can be seen immediately. Unlike other resurfacing techniques, the skin does not have to recuperate, and no redness or swelling should occur. Following the procedure, the skin will feel smoother and more refined.
What Is Dermaplaning Aftercare Like?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning. If you experience redness, it will disappear after a few days. You will notice brighter skin once the redness subsides. Make sure to use sunscreen and moisturizer to protect your skin after the treatment.
To achieve optimal results, patients can schedule a dermaplaning session every 3-4 weeks at Reflections Medical Spa.
