Exfoliation is a regular part of many people’s skin care regimens. However, drugstore exfoliants are limited in the penetration and exfoliation they can provide. Dermaplaning is a safe, deeper-penetrating, and more effective way to remove dead skin and debris from your face. At aFresh® Med Spa & Plastic Surgery, we recommend the treatment to patients who want a smoother look and feel of their skin and/or diminishment of acne scarring.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplanning is an exfoliation technique that should only be performed by a trained professional. The treatment uses a sterile tool to gently remove dead skin cells and tiny hairs from the surface of your face. The tool is angled to most effectively and safely execute the treatment. It is mostly used as a stand-alone procedure and is not intended for the shaping or removal of thicker hairs like eyebrows or beards.
How Often Should I Get Treatments?
You may want to space dermaplaning treatments out by three to four weeks. While many patients are tempted to space appointments closer together, the objective of the waiting period is to allow for your hair’s natural growth cycle and the skin’s rejuvenation cycle to be complete. The treatment will remove several weeks of skin buildup, and hair from your face when you return, and the dermaplaning benefits you receive will be better.
Who Should Get Dermaplaning?
We always will assess your skin to see if you are a good candidate for treatment. However, most people who want the treatment qualify for it.
The many benefits of dermaplaning include:
- It allows for skin care products to more deeply penetrate your skin
- It rids your face of the peach fuzz that traps dirt and oil
- It promotes smoother skin
- It can reduce the appearance of acne scarring
- It can diminish the appearance of fine lines
- It has instant results
- It is safe for all skin types
- It does not cause hyperpigmentation
- The small hairs removed grow back without thickening or darkening
