Dermaplaning has become highly popular in the past several years, and we are happy to offer this service to our clients. Did you know that every person has layers of dead skin cells on their face contributing to skin concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, dull skin, acne breakouts and much more? Dermaplaning is a treatment that can treat all of these skin concerns. The brightening effect is immediate and can help your skincare products sink in deeper and makeup go on smoother.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that is basically like shaving your face. It is a safe and simple alternative to other more extensive skin rejuvenation treatments. All you need is a licensed medical aesthetician and a sterile medical scalpel. During treatment, a scalpel is lightly feathered across your skin to remove unwanted peach fuzz and dead skin cells, making your skin will feel rejuvenated and refreshed. This treatment is great when paired with another treatment like a HydraFacial. We lovingly referred to this combo as our “Hydra-Planing” treatment.
What Are The Benefits Of Dermaplaning?
You will see immediate results after the treatment. Dermplaning removes unwanted peach fuzz that holds onto dirt and oil.
- Improves your skin’s ability to absorb moisturizers
- Stimulates your skin’s blood circulation
- Increases your skin’s elasticity
This treatment also minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles, while helping to correct your skin’s texture.
What Are The Risks Of Dermaplaning?
Dermplaning is safe for all skin types, especially clients with sun damage, fine lines or dry and dull skin. But, if you have something like rosacea, are broken out with acne or have another sensitive skin condition you might want to pass on this treatment.
All of that said, our technicians do everything in their power to keep you safe. They wear gloves and only use sterilized blades, significantly minimizing any risk of infection. Our team is also trained and experienced in dermaplaning. But working with sharp instruments always involves the rare risk of an accidental cut.
During your initial consultation, we will make you aware of any possible risks. The skill of the technician and the cooperation of the client can determine the success of the treatment.
Am I A Good Dermaplaning Candidate?
We will determine if dermaplaning is right for you during your initial consultation. Clients who are approved for treatment are generally in good health and do not have shingles, open lesions, diabetes or thin, raw skin. They also do not take blood thinners or antibiotics. If you are taking topical antibiotics, we will ask you to wait three to ten days after completion of your medication before receiving your treatment.
