Dermaplaning

The skin is a massive and sensitive organ the requires meticulous care to keep it looking and feeling its best. The good news is the proper skin treatment does not have to involve surgery or other invasive procedures. For many patients, the quick, noninvasive methods produce stellar results, and regular sessions help you maintain your refreshed look indefinitely. One of the top skin treatments in this category is an exfoliation process known as dermaplaning.

Refresh Your Look with Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that uses a very sharp blade to remove the outermost layers of skin cells as well as the “peach fuzz” on the face to create an ultra-smooth finish to the dermis. When the procedure is handled by an experienced, skilled provider like the team at Advanced Skin Medspa, the treatment is safe and boasts few if any side effects. This procedure is a favorite among celebrities, due to its ability to produce a brighter, more radiant complexion quickly with few signs you just had a treatment performed.

Is Dermaplaning Right for You?

In addition to perking up your appearance, dermaplaning offers improvement in the following skin concerns:

  • Roughness
  • Dry, dehydrated skin
  • Irregular skin texture or tone
  • Shallow scarring
  • Fine lines

In addition, products applied after a dermaplaning treatment can penetrate more deeply into the dermal layers, where the active ingredients can have a more significant impact on the overall health and appearance of your skin.

Dermaplaning is appropriate for nearly any skin type and tone. Patients with active acne breakouts should wait to have this procedure. However, women who are pregnant and unable to undergo other exfoliation treatments can safely have dermaplaning performed during their pregnancy.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning offers subtle rejuvenation results that last three to four weeks in most cases. There are many reasons to choose dermaplaning over other exfoliation methods:

  • Quick procedure
  • No anesthetic required
  • Return to activities immediately
  • No potentially dangerous chemicals use
  • Only procedure to remove peach fuzz from the face

Dermaplaning is ideal for patients that have skin too sensitive for other types of exfoliation. The procedure is gentle enough to repeat monthly to maintain positive results over the long term.

Procedure Overview

Your dermaplaning procedure will take place in our office and last about 30 minutes. Once you are in a comfortable position, we will cleanse your skin thoroughly. Your provider will then use the narrow blade to scrape away areas of the skin. The skin will be pulled taut to reduce the risk of nicks or discomfort. Most patients liken the feeling of the blade to shaving.

After Your Dermaplaning Treatment

You can return to your activities immediately following your session. Your skin may be pinker than usual and is especially vulnerable to damage. Do not go outdoors without sunscreen on the treatment area and limit your time of direct sun exposure for a few days to give the skin time to heal. You will likely see improvement in your complexion right after your treatment, which will continue for a few weeks. We recommend monthly dermaplaning treatments to maintain your healthy glow and brighter skin.

If you are looking for a quick, cost-effective way to achieve more radiant skin, dermaplaning might be the right choice for you. To learn more about this exfoliation treatment, contact Advanced Skin Medspa today at 845-392-2111. We look forward to hearing from you.
