Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective exfoliation procedure. The technician uses a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top layer of dead skin along with fine hair.
Dermaplane treatments last about 20-30 minutes. The area to be treated will be cleaned, and then sterile blade will be used to gently exfoliate your skin. No anesthesia is needed. The sloughed off skin cells and “peach fuzz” will be gently wiped away at the end of the procedure – revealing a fresh, vibrant skin surface.
Frequently Asked Questions
Initial benefits from dermaplane treatments are immediately apparent. However, optimal results require regular maintenance treatments. It took many years for your skin to lose its vitality, and it takes time to regenerate new cells.
Because dermaplaning is non-invasive it has a low risk of complications and is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. Some patients report redness or dry feeling in their skin after a treatment, but this is temporary. Very rarely the skin can be nicked. This typically heals almost on the spot – remember – most men use a blade on their faces almost every day and nick themselves regularly with no long-term effects! Typical care following your treatment includes the use of moisturizers and sunscreens, and avoiding sun exposure for a few days. There is no downtime for this “lunch hour” procedure, and most people return to their regular activities immediately.
Yes! Not only can you combine a dermaplane with chemical peels, or laser treatments, you should! Be removing the outermost layer of the epidermis, a dermaplane treatment then allows whatever rejuvenating treatment that follows it to have a deeper and more long-lasting effect. We recommend that every laser treatment be preceded by a microdermabrasion or dermaplane treatment for optimal results.
