What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a deep level of exfoliation, that not only removes layers of dead skin cells, but can also diminish fine lines, unclog pores, smooth out acne scars, as well as remove unwanted facial hair.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
A surgical scalpel gently scrapes the skin and removes the top layers of dead skin cells, revealing a brighter and smoother complexion. After the removal of dead skin cells, the body will regenerate new skin cells and produce collagen between the layers of skin, which will soften wrinkles, even out skin tone, and give the skin an overall more youthful appearance.
What Results Can I Expect From My Treatment?
You may notice some redness or sensitivity immediately after your procedure but this should dissipate within a few days. It is best to avoid sun exposure for 4-6 after dermaplaning to allow the skin to heal safely and effectively. While dermaplaning is a great, non-invasive option for most patients, speak to your provider to see if its right for you. Those with eczema, sun burns, rashes, moles or other concerns may benefit from a different treatment.
Dermaplaning Vs. Dermabrasion Vs. Microdermabrasion?
All are skin resurfacing procedures. Dermaplaning uses a scalpel to remove dead skin while dermabrasion is a surgical procedure. Microdermabrasion is a nonsurgical procedure that uses an exfoliating blade to sand away skin.
