Dermaplaning is one of the most effective exfoliation treatments available for the face and and has been offered in the cosmetic industry for over 20 years. The treatment provides instant gratification and best of all, it’s painless.
The procedure involves the use of a scalpel to gently scrape away hair from the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair. Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment to prepare thin skin for peels in patients who cannot tolerate Micro-Dermabrasion.
In addition to removing skin cells, dermaplaning is also known for the removal of the baby-fine hair that naturally exists on the face. The removal of this hair achieves a number of benefits. Immediately after treatment, the skin looks smooth and supple, revealing a healthy glow. Due to the removal of fine hair and cells that protect the skin from external elements, dermaplaning improves the efficiency of skin care products and facilitates the achievement of skin care goals. Not to mention how easily your make-up goes on and will use much less of it.
No. This very precise professional procedure is very different from personal grooming with a disposable razor. The difference in the skin is felt and seen right away and the degree of improvement is remarkable.
Patients can come in as often as once a month and the process can remove about 2-3 weeks of accumulated dead skin cells. Coming in more often is not recommended because it can interfere with the skin’s normal renewal cycle and may cause peeling from over-exfoliation, because the body will not yet have created enough new skin.
Dermaplaning uses no chemicals and is perfect for those with sensitivity to chemical peels and products. The session can be over in as little as 30 minutes, and the process is gentle enough that most patients can go out for lunch or dinner afterwards without red skin or signs of irritation. The exfoliation benefits can lead to a reduction in wrinkles and often to a reduction in the appearance of scars and other imperfections.
