What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is also known as blading or microplanning, and it’s a skin treatment that exfoliates dead skin cells and hair from the face, and addresses issues like dry skin and acne scarring. The aim with dermaplaning is to make the skin smooth, radiant, and more youthful looking.
The treatment can be done to address skin issues like:
- Uneven pockmarks in the skin
- Skin that was damaged by the sun
- Acne scarring
- “Peach fuzz” facial hair
- Dry skin
- Fine wrinkles
Since dermaplaning is so versatile, it could be used for other issues too.
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
The versatility of the treatment is a big benefit, especially since it means the treatment can be done for any skin type. However, versatility isn’t the only big benefit of dermaplaning!
Another major benefit of dermaplaning is how safe the treatment is. It’s very low risk for the patient, and the side effects are typically minor, like slight redness. Additionally, there’s practically no downtime after the treatment.
Another benefit can be immediate results! Right after a treatment session, you might notice that your skin looks brighter and just better. It can take a few days before you’ll see the full results, but you might notice some immediate results. Speaking of results, many patients get great and even drastic results from their treatment.
What can I expect for results from dermaplaning?
Generally, the results are a smoother appearance and a brighter look, and these things can contribute to a much more youthful look overall. As for skin issues like acne scarring, they’ll likely be diminished in appearance. Your results could be dramatic. You’ll be able to find out during consultation with a professional!
What happens in a dermaplaning procedure?
First of all, you can expect the procedure to be comfortable for you, and you’ll likely feel a bit of a tingling sensation. If you’d like to be numbed prior to your procedure, the provider may be able to offer a numbing spray or something similar.
The concept of dermaplaning is similar to the concept of shaving, so during the procedure, the professional will use a simple, harmless blade to “shave” away dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris on the skin. The procedure is that simple, and it takes around 20 to 30 minutes.
After the procedure, the provider might apply a product to soothe your skin, and the provider might also apply sunscreen to protect your face. You’ll be left with a face that has a layer of new and healthier skin cells, and you may be left with smoother, brighter, and more youthful skin!
