Explore the benefits of our dermaplaning services and what to expect.
Exfoliate your skin by removing the top layer of skin, peach fuzz to reveal smooth, airbrushed skin. Can cause some redness, so make an appointment a few days before an event. You can expect immediate results that last about 3 weeks. Maximize your skin's ability to absorb important skin treatments.
The aesthetician uses a small surgical blade to exfoliate the top layer of skin and remove peach fuzz, making the skin look smooth and almost like it’s airbrushed. Your skin may look red for a few days after treatment, so it’s best to schedule the treatment a few days before a special event and can be done every 3-4 weeks. The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring. This treatment is effective for those looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright. Results typically last three weeks. Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror. Dermaplaning can be added on to any facial.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with acne scars, dull skin, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and fine wrinkles. You may be advised to add a chemical peel to your dermaplaning treatment. Right after dermaplaning, your skin is able to deeply absorb and benefit from a chemical peel in a way it can’t at other times.
Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when it’s performed by a certified dermatologist. This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient. You won’t need to take time off from work, and you may even be able to fit it in during your lunch break. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning. Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue. Another possible side effect is a patchy skin pigment in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.
If you look at the tool used for dermaplaning treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair. The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven. During a dermaplaning procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment. You’ll lie down in a private, comfortable room. After you’re relaxed, we will use a manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as we gently work to exfoliate the skin. After the treatment is finished, we will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face. You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover but may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure. You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward. After a dermaplaning treatment, you’ll need to be extra careful about sun exposure. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning or create pigment blotches on your freshly uncovered skin cells. In the weeks after a dermaplaning treatment, don’t leave the house without wearing sunscreen on your face. Results last for 3-4 weeks. If you have an active acne flare-up, you may need to reschedule your appointment to avoid irritating your skin further or tearing your skin’s surface. You’ll also need to avoid direct sun exposure in the week prior to your appointment, as sun damage, such as a sunburn, could compromise your skin and make the treatment painful.
