Have you ever wondered why some people have flawless faces? If you dream of having baby smooth skin again, consider dermaplaning. It’s perfect for people who want brighter, smoother, glowing and more youthful skin without any downtime or discomfort.
Dermaplaning is a completely painless treatment performed by a skilled, licensed aesthetician. The treatment is done using a small, sterile blade and a soft touch, scraping the surface of the skin using light feathery strokes, to remove peach fuzz (vellus) hair, and the top layer of dead skin.
Dermaplaning is completed quickly, usually in less than 30 minutes. It has no side effects or complications and delivers amazing results. Along with removing old, dead skin cells, dermaplaning reduces the appearance of common skin problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, enlarged pores and fine lines while stimulating new skin cell growth.
It is a wonderful choice for anyone who has fine facial hair, extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, as well as visible facial veins. Dermaplaning is also an excellent choice for women who are pregnant and cannot use any chemical peels or harsh treatments but want healthier looking skin. Not everyone is a candidate and we do not recommend this treatment for patients with active or cystic acne.
After your treatment your face will have a smoother texture and fresher appearance. Facial hair returns softly and will not appear coarser or darker because of the treatment. Your skin care products will work better as they are able to penetrate directly into the skin without having to work their way through layers of dead skin. Makeup will effortlessly glide over your face since it’s now smoother. Now you can have that movie star quality skin you have always desired.
We often recommend having a chemical peel immediately after dermaplaning. It is an excellent way to make sure the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly into your skin and provides optimal results.
For the best outcome we usually recommend several dermaplaning treatments scheduled about 4 weeks apart because the process removes any dead or damaged skin cells from the prior three-week period.
Don’t forget that it is very important to apply sunscreen containing zinc oxide daily after this treatment. The best news about dermaplaning is that there is no down time required for recovery. Skin won’t even look irritated, inflamed or red, so friends and family members won’t know what has suddenly rejuvenated and revitalized your skin. And there is no discomfort and no need for application of any special topical creams or solutions, except for sunscreen, following the procedure.
One note of caution. Dermaplaning should never be done at home. If you are considering this procedure, make it is done by a trained, licensed aesthetician. Surgical scalpels are much sharper that the average razor and the technique requires a delicate touch, making it nearly impossible to do at home. Save yourself a few cuts on the face and leave it to the professionals.
