While it may seem similar to shaving at first glance, dermaplaning is a professional exfoliating treatment that goes beyond merely removing facial hair. Unlike traditional shaving, dermaplaning utilizes a small, sterile surgical blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells in addition to clearing away vellus hair (commonly known as “peach fuzz”). This intricate procedure not only removes hair but also leaves your skin smoother, brighter, and more even in tone and texture.
Dermaplaning offers numerous benefits, making it a popular choice for skin rejuvenation. The procedure exfoliates the skin, removing dead and damaged skin cells and promoting the regeneration of new ones. This can result in a healthier, more youthful complexion with reduced fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. By removing vellus hair, it leaves your skin smoother and more refined, enhancing the absorption and effectiveness of skincare products. The treatment is painless, has minimal downtime, and can provide immediate results, giving your skin an instant, radiant glow.
Dermaplaning is performed using a surgical blade that gently exfoliates the top layer of the skin. This process removes dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris, leading to a rejuvenated and revitalized skin appearance. By also removing vellus hair or “peach fuzz”, it leaves your skin smoother and more evenly textured. The exfoliation process stimulates the skin’s natural regeneration process, promoting the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
After a Dermaplaning session, you can expect to see immediate improvements in skin texture and tone. The removal of dead skin and vellus hair results in a smoother, more radiant complexion. Over time, you may also notice a reduction in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The results are not only instantly gratifying but also help to stimulate the natural regeneration of your skin cells, offering a long-term benefit to your skin’s health and vitality.
There’s a common myth that hair will grow back thicker or darker after dermaplaning, but that’s not the case. The texture and color of your hair will not change as a result of dermaplaning. While the hair may feel slightly different as it grows back due to the straight cut made during the treatment, it’s the exact same hair with the same texture and color it had before the procedure.
Preparing for a Dermaplaning procedure is relatively straightforward. You should come to the appointment with clean, dry skin free of makeup. If you’re using any skin treatments such as retinol or acid peels, it’s recommended to stop these a few days before the treatment to avoid skin sensitivity. Always consult with your Dr. G for specific pre-treatment instructions.
During a Dermaplaning procedure, Dr. G will carefully glide a sterile surgical blade over your skin, targeting the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair. The treatment is usually performed on the face and other problem areas, effectively removing debris and leaving the skin looking refreshed and revitalized. The procedure is painless and is often described as feeling like a gentle brushing sensation.
During the dermal filler procedure, the provider will first cleanse the treatment area and may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort. The filler will then be injected using a fine needle or cannula into the targeted areas of the face. The procedure typically takes 30-60 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.
One of the key benefits of Dermaplaning is the minimal downtime. Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly pink, but this generally subsides within a few hours. The procedure is gentle enough that most people can return to their normal activities right away. Your skin will be particularly susceptible to the sun after the treatment, so wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential. Also, it’s advisable to keep your skin hydrated and avoid using harsh chemicals or exfoliants for a few days following the treatment.
Dermaplaning is a safe procedure for most people; however, like any skincare treatment, it does have potential risks. These can include slight redness, skin irritation, and dryness post-procedure. There’s also a small risk of nicks or cuts if the procedure is not performed correctly. However, when done by a certified professional, these risks are minimal. It’s not recommended for those with active acne, as it can potentially spread bacteria and cause breakouts. You can consult with Dr. G to see if dermaplaning is suitable for your skin type and condition.
