Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that is performed by using a 10 blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dull and dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It can be combined with a chemical peel for even more exfoliation.
Dermaplaning also eliminates the "peach fuzz" on the face, leaving the skin much brighter, smoother and tighter. Additionally dermaplaning allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. This treatment becomes a monthly favorite for patients, as they love how smooth and clean their skin feels.
Who Can Benefit From Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except for those with active acne. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities with your specialist before starting a treatment.
How Often Should Dermaplaning Be Done?
Dermaplaning can be done every three to four weeks. The procedure is safe and effective for pregnant/nursing women as well. Dermaplaning can be done with a chemical peel or as a method to prep your skin for a laser treatment.
What Results To Expect?
You should see a noticeable glow immediately after treatment as dead, dull layers of epidermal skin are removed. Without excess vellus hair trapping excess oil and skincare products, most patients see a marked improvement in the skin for a brightening, anti-aging effect. Repeat treatments will be necessary when you see your peach fuzz return, usually after approximately one month.
