Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that is a great alternative to microdermabrasion and peels. By gently removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hairs (peach fuzz) with a special tool, brighter, healthier skin emerges. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face; it is not used to shape the eyebrows.
This non-invasive treatment is highly effective in reducing the following skin complaints:
• Rough or irregular skin texture
• Uneven skin tone
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Superficial acne scars
• Mature skin that’s dull or sallow
• Unwanted fine facial hairs (vellus hairs)
What is Power Dermaplaning?
During a SkinMD Power Dermaplaning procedure, we perform an additional procedure after dermaplaning to boost your results. These include a chemical peel, peptide and antioxidant mask or microneedling. Power Dermaplaning is not recommended for everyone.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Since exfoliation triggers cell regeneration, your skin will look and feel softer after this treatment. In addition, your skin care products work more efficiently since they penetrate the skin to a deeper level. Your makeup also goes on smoother as well. Dermaplaning is the perfect, pain-free procedure when you want to avoid other types of skin treatments like waxing or sugaring of vellus hairs, deep peels and other minimally abrasive exfoliation procedures.
Am I a Good Candidate for Treatment?
Individuals with a rough skin texture can benefit from dermaplaning. In addition, undergoing the procedure can help to minimize superficial scars from acne while helping to even out skin tone.
Dermaplaning is also highly effective in rejuvenating mature skin. Since cell turnover tends to slow down, as we get older, undergoing the procedure will remove dead skin and help to accelerate healthy cell regeneration. Even pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding can safely undergo the procedure as well.
This procedure is performed in the comfort of our office. You can return to work or your regular activities immediately afterward, making the treatment extremely convenient for people with busy schedules and lifestyles.
It’s important to note that dermaplaning should not be performed at home. Since it requires a special tool and a skillful hand, attempting to perform the procedure at home could result in unwanted side effects and complications.
How Often Should I Have Dermaplaning Performed?
Clear, beautiful skin begins with regular maintenance. While we recommend most people have this procedure performed once a month, others opt for bi-monthly treatments. It all depends on your unique situation, and the decision is up to your schedule. Regardless of how often you undergo dermaplaning, maintaining a regular skin care regimen is a must. Taking advantage of our other skin treatments in between your dermaplaning sessions can boost and extend your results.
