Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic treatment that is used to remove dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. The procedure removes acne scarring and wrinkles while making your skin’s surface feel smooth and refined.
If you wish to make your skin appear smooth, bright, and youthful, dermaplaning is the perfect solution. It does not have any downtime, which means you can carry on with your work and dailyroutine immediately after receiving the therapy.The results of this procedure last for about three to four weeks.
Is Dermaplaning Right for You?
Dermaplaning addresses a number of issues, such as:
- Dull/dry skin
- Acne scars
- Fine wrinkles
- Damaged skin due to sunexposure
Dermaplaning is suitable for any skin type. If you are prone to breakouts, it will be important to wait until your skin has cleared before coming in for dermaplaning.
How Dermaplaning Works
Also called blading or microplaning, dermaplaning is a medical exfoliation treatment where fine vellus hairs (also called peach fuzz) and dead cells on your skin are removed using an exfoliating blade.Ultimately, you are left with smoother and more radiant skin.
The process behind dermaplaning is straight and simple. The procedure involves gently and lightly moving a sterile blade across the skin’s surface to remove dead skin cells. It also gets rid of oil and other debris that might be making your skin appear aged and dull. Dermaplaning clears those damaged cells and gives you a rejuvenated look.
The Treatment Process
You will first be made to lie down in a clean and comfortable chair in your medical provider’s clinic. A numbing spray or a sedative might be used to make you more comfortable during the procedure.
Once you are relaxed, our cosmetic expert uses a manual or electronic dermaplaning tool to remove the dead cells and debris. They aim it at a 45-degree angle and scrape over your damaged skin very gently for about 20 to 30 minutes. Once the procedure is complete, they apply a soothing product/cream or sunscreen over your skin.
