What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an innovative procedure to reveal younger looking, refreshed skin. While it is a modern treatment method, the process itself is very simple. Using a specific instrument, Dermaplaning removes the fine upper layers of dead skin and hair from the face or treatment area. By removing the dead skin cells and hair, collagen production is boosted to reveal younger, glowing skin.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
To remove the upper layers of skin and hair from the treatment area, we use a specialized instrument specifically for dermaplaning. The instrument has been used in dermatology for decades and is an effective alternative to microdermabrasion, which can be harsh for some people with very sensitive skin. Dermaplaning is less aggressive than microdermabrasion, but it is still one of the most effective forms of exfoliation available. Dermaplaning provides immediate results by removing dead skin cells and hair growth on your face. Treatment frequency varies by patient.
Who Is A Candidate For Dermaplaning?
If you feel like your face is dull or you have uneven skin tone or texture, dermaplaning can help. While dermaplaning does effectively remove hair or “peach fuzz” from the face, that is considered a secondary benefit and should not be the main motivation for this treatment. Dermaplaning involves no chemicals or topical solutions, making it ideal for people who have sensitive skin or allergies. This procedure is also a great option for people who want to look younger and refreshed but have busy lives and schedules and requires no downtime. If you have active acne, it must first be treated and cleared for you to be considered a candidate for dermaplaning.
Is Dermaplaning Effective?
Dermaplaning is effective short-term and long-term. Immediately, you will see fresher, more radiant skin with no hair. Over time, your skin will boost its own collagen production and remain radiant between your dermaplaning appointments. Often times, vellus hair can trap dead skin cells and oil, resulting in clog pores. Eliminating hair keeps your skin clearer and healthier.
How Is Dermaplaning Performed?
Our specialist will gently exfoliate the surface layers of your skin removing dead cells and hair to resurface and polish the face. This is a non-invasive treatment, and no preparation is needed. Because the skin will be sensitive, especially during your first procedure, we advise you to follow your aftercare program and avoid the sun.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
MedSpa procedures such as dermaplaning are considered elective treatments by insurance companies, so they are not covered by policies. To make dermaplaning more accessible to more patients, Parkcrest Plastic Surgery offers financing. We also accept cash, major credit cards, or a personal check.
