If you’ve been looking for a way to restore your skin to a more youthful, smoother appearance, dermaplaning may be the perfect solution for you. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure performed somewhat like shaving that helps even skin texture and reduce the visible signs of aging.
Dermaplaning is usually done just before a chemical peel to help the peel work more effectively. Using an instrument similar to a butter knife, your medical esthetician will remove the top layer of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning before a chemical peel or other treatment helps vital nutrients absorb more efficiently, leaving your skin healthier.
The process stimulates cell renewal and evens out lines, wrinkles, scarring, and other uneven skin textures. Dermaplaning also temporarily removes those fine hairs known as “peach fuzz,” preventing them from growing back thicker, and the procedure is more comfortable than waxing.
It’s ideal for people who tend to have dull, dry skin because it removes that outer layer of dead cells that clog pores and keep skin looking dull. It’s also great for people with acne scarring, because removing surrounding skin cells makes acne scars look less noticeable.
The length of your dermaplaning appointment will vary based on your individual needs. In some cases, dermaplaning is needed on only small areas. Others may need treatment over the entire face. There is little downtime after the procedure, but there may be some slight redness and puffiness after treatment, and it’s usually best to avoid makeup for the rest of the day to let skin breathe. You will need sun protection if you plan on spending time outdoors after the treatment.
Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, although if you have hypersensitive skin, a consultation is recommended before the procedure to ensure it’s right for you.
After the procedure, you’ll have smooth, baby-soft skin that’s brighter and younger looking. Skincare products will penetrate better for healthier skin overall.
