Every day our skin is exposed to many harsh factors including the sun and its UV rays, general pollutants in the air, chemicals in products that come in contact with our faces, and numerous germs in general. With all the things that can damage our skin and make it look dull, there is a practical, non-invasive treatment to help give our faces a healthy and youthful glow.
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of the skin. It aims to remove fine wrinkles, to reduce the appearance of acne scars, and to make the skin look smooth and more radiant.
Dermaplaning uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from the face. The sterile blade is held at a 45-degree angle and is dragged lightly over the skin removing dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris.
Dermaplaning is a treatment that is safe for any skin type and most people can have the procedure done with little risk of side effects. If you have sun damage, wrinkles, dry skin, or dull skin, then you are a good candidate for dermaplaning which will give you more youthful, smooth, and bright skin.
A typical dermaplaning treatment takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. At the beginning of the session, the skin will be cleansed with a mild facial cleanser. While there is typically no pain associated with this treatment, some patients report a tingling sensation. Some providers may offer a numbing spray during the procedure, but it is generally not necessary. They will then use an electronic or manual deplaning tool to scrape over the skin at a 45-degree angle. Once the procedure is completed, the provider will cleanse the area again and apply a soothing treatment such as aloe or a similar lotion with sunscreen.
Immediately following the dermaplaning procedure, patients will see the following improvements:
Results typically last 3 to 4 weeks and can be safely repeated at intervals determined by the provider and patient.

There is absolutely no downtime with this procedure. Patients can have this procedure done at any time during the day and immediately return to their normal daily routines. Some patients may have slight redness for several hours afterward, but this will quickly subside. It will be extremely important that patients wear sunscreen faithfully when doing outdoor activities.
