What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a gentle cosmetic procedure that involves using a surgical scalpel or a similar tool to exfoliate the top layer of skin. Through this process, we can remove fine vellus hair (commonly called peach fuzz) as well as dead skin cells and other debris. It is often performed to refresh the appearance of the skin on the face, neck and chest.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
The benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Removal of peach fuzz
- Diminished lines and wrinkles
- Improved skin tone and texture
- Enhanced results from skincare and cosmetic products
- Quick, painless treatment
- No downtime
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
Dermaplaning costs will vary based on your individual goals. We price each treatment based on the extent of treatment necessary to produce your desired results, which may include multiple treatment sessions or personalized treatment protocols. The best way to determine the cost of your dermaplaning treatment is to schedule a consultation with us at About Face Skin Care. We can then provide you with more in-depth information about the procedure and answer any questions you might have.
Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is safe for most skin types, but it may not be suitable for people with active acne, eczema, rosacea, or related skin conditions. It is also not recommended for those who have recently had a chemical peel or other skin resurfacing treatments, as the skin needs to be fully healed before pursuing further treatments. Otherwise, most patients who are interested in achieving smoother, clearer skin with dermaplaning techniques are suitable candidates for treatment. To determine whether you’re a candidate for dermaplaning, schedule a consultation at About Face Skin Care.
How Is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning typically takes about 30 minutes to perform. It is performed in-office with no anesthesia necessary. Before treatment, the skin will be cleansed and dried. Then, we’ll use a scalpel to gently scrape the surface of the skin at a 45º angle. This removes peach fuzz, dead skin cells and other debris. This is a painless process that many patients find to be quite relaxing.
What Is Recovery Like After Dermaplaning?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning, and most people can resume their normal activities immediately. The skin may be slightly red or sensitive for a few hours after the procedure, but this should subside quickly. It is important to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen for at least 24 hours after the procedure.
How Long Will My Dermaplaning Results Last?
The results of dermaplaning can last for several weeks, but this can vary depending on the individual's skin type and how quickly their skin naturally sheds dead skin cells. It is recommended to space out dermaplaning treatments at least 4 to 6 weeks apart to allow the skin to fully regenerate. Most patients choose to receive monthly dermaplaning treatments to maintain their results.
