Dermaplaning is designed to revitalize the appearance of the skin. This exfoliating treatment can clear the skin of dead cells, accumulated dirt and debris, as well as vellus hair (the facial hair commonly called “peach fuzz”). Afterward, the pores are cleared and skin typically feels fresh and smooth. Dermaplaning can improve the absorption and effectiveness of skin care products or be combined with a facial peel for even greater skin rejuvenation. Many patients schedule routine dermaplaning appointments to maintain their results and enhance the quality of their skin over time.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
For patients who want healthier, smoother-looking skin, dermaplaning can be used to achieve a youthful, glowing complexion. The benefits of dermaplaning can include:
- Dead skin cell removal
- Eliminated dirt and debris
- Clear, open pores
- Refined pores
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Minimized appearance of lines, wrinkles, scars, and sun damage
In addition, after a dermaplaning session, clearer skin allows for increased absorption and efficiency of many skin care products.
Dermaplaning Procedure and Results
Prior to each dermaplaning session, the skin is carefully cleansed to maximize the treatment’s effectiveness. A specially-designed sterile blade is then used to gently remove dead skin cells, residue, and vellus hair from the skin’s surface. Each dermaplaning session can be completed in approximately 30 minutes, and the results are typically instantaneous. To maintain clearer, smoother skin, dermaplaning treatments can be scheduled every 3-4 weeks. Some patients also choose to combine dermaplaning sessions with additional facial treatments to further enhance the results.
