Dermaplaning is a specialized cosmetic procedure designed to rejuvenate the skin by removing its top layers. This treatment aims to eliminate fine wrinkles, deep acne scars, and create a smoother skin surface. By using an exfoliating blade, dermaplaning skims away dead skin cells and facial hair, often referred to as “peach fuzz.”

The result is a more youthful, radiant, and even complexion. With its increasing popularity, many individuals are turning to dermaplaning to achieve a fresher and brighter skin appearance. When performed by a certified dermatologist, the procedure is safe for most people and offers transformative results.

How Dermaplaning Works

Dermaplaning utilizes a sterile blade positioned at a 45-degree angle to gently exfoliate the skin’s surface. The procedure is akin to shaving, where the blade is dragged slowly across the skin, removing dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris. This exfoliation process not only removes the superficial layers but also allows for better product penetration. Over time, our skin is exposed to environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage, causing the top layer to appear dull. Dermaplaning effectively removes these damaged skin cells, revealing fresher and newer cells underneath.

FAQs

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that uses a specialized blade to remove dead skin cells and facial hair from the face. It aims to enhance the skin’s texture, reduce fine wrinkles, and diminish acne scars, resulting in a smoother and more radiant complexion. The procedure is particularly beneficial for those looking to achieve a fresher and brighter skin appearance without undergoing invasive treatments.

What Causes Fine Wrinkles and Acne Scars

Fine wrinkles and acne scars are common skin concerns that many individuals face. Factors such as aging, sun exposure, genetics, and lifestyle choices contribute to the formation of fine lines. On the other hand, acne scars result from inflamed blemishes caused by skin pores engorged with excess oil, dead skin cells, and bacteria. The pore swells, causing a break in the follicle wall, leading to scars. Hormonal changes, diet, stress, and certain medications can also exacerbate acne, leading to deeper and more pronounced scars over time.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types. It’s especially beneficial for individuals with acne scars, dull skin, dry patches, sun-damaged skin, and fine wrinkles. However, those with active acne flare-ups should consult with their dermatologist before undergoing the procedure. The treatment is tailored to address specific skin concerns, ensuring optimal results for each individual.

How Should I Prepare for Dermaplaning Treatment?

Before undergoing dermaplaning, it’s crucial to avoid direct sun exposure for at least a week. Sun damage, such as sunburn, can compromise the skin and make the treatment painful. It’s also recommended to discuss your medical history, skin type, and desired results with your provider. Proper preparation ensures a smoother procedure and better post-treatment results.

What Can I Expect During Dermaplaning Recovery?

Dermaplaning requires minimal to no downtime. Some individuals might experience slight redness or a sensation of scraped skin for a couple of days post-treatment. It’s essential to apply sunscreen to protect the newly exposed skin cells from sun damage. Following the recommended post-treatment care can enhance the results and ensure a quicker recovery.

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?

The cost of dermaplaning can vary based on location and provider, but sessions typically range between $150 and $250. It’s not covered by insurance, and additional treatments like chemical peels may incur extra charges. It’s always best to consult with our office during a consultation for a precise cost estimate tailored to your needs.

Combining Dermaplaning With Other Treatments

Dermaplaning, when paired with other treatments, can amplify skincare results. For instance, post-dermaplaning skin is more receptive to chemical peels, enhancing their efficacy in addressing hyperpigmentation and fine lines. Microneedling, which stimulates collagen production, works synergistically with dermaplaning for improved serum absorption. Additionally, treatments like HydraFacial, LED light therapy, and oxygen facials can achieve optimal outcomes when the skin is prepped with dermaplaning, ensuring deeper penetration and more effective results.
