Dermaplaning is considered a safe and effective treatment option for improving skin quality.

Overview Of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive procedure that involves scraping away dead skin cells, excess oil, and other debris. This can help maintain or restore the rate of cellular turnover, which is essential for keeping your face looking fresh and youthful. The procedure results in smoother and softer skin immediately.

The procedure involves removing dead skin cells, stimulating the body’s natural healing process. As a result, new skin cells that are more vibrant and firm are produced, resulting in a brighter and more toned appearance.

In addition, this procedure eliminates vellus hair, commonly known as peach fuzz, from the face. This hair, although fine hair can trap dead cells, oil, dirt, and other debris, leading to dull and lackluster skin and potential skin problems such as acne.

Using a cleanser to remove debris from your skin can improve makeup application, as it allows for more accessible and less cakey coverage due to deeper penetration of the cleanser.

At our Scottsdale location, dermaplaning is commonly utilized as a pre-treatment therapy before other facial procedures like non-ablative laser skin resurfacing or chemical peels to improve the effectiveness of these treatment.

The Benefits Of Dermaplaning Include:

1. Smooths your skin’s texture: By scraping away the top layer of dead, dry skin cells, it removes any roughness or patches that could be caused by built-up dirt, oil, and other debris.

2. Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles: Exfoliating the skin can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by encouraging collagen production in the underlying layers of skin.

3. Removes unwanted facial hair: Unwanted facial hair can be a bother for some people to manage, but dermaplaning is a gentle way to get rid of it without undergoing harsh treatments like waxing or electrolysis.

4. Enhances makeup applications: After dermaplaning, any makeup you apply will go on smoother since there won’t be any dead cells left to clog your pores or make it difficult to blend.

5. Improves product absorption: By removing a layer of dead skin cells before applying skincare products, they will penetrate your skin easier and be more effective in treating whatever issue you are targeting with those products — such as acne, wrinkles, sun spots, etc.

So What Should You Expect?

The procedure involves using a scalpel to scrape off the top layer of skin cells, removing debris such as excess oil, dead cells, and blemishes. This reveals fresher skin, leading to a smoother and brighter complexion.

Because the blade used in this procedure is identical to those used in surgical operations, entrusting the process to a trained professional is essential. Our skin experts can perform the procedure with ease and minimal discomfort.

The time required for the process varies depending on the size of the area being treated, with a minimum of 15 minutes. The process involves carefully removing a layer of skin cells, similar to shaving.

The skin is cleansed, toned, and dried before a targeted area is scraped with short, swift strokes to remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz, excess oil, and debris. A facial massage may follow, and aftercare products like UV protection and moisturizers may be applied.

After the appointment, your skin will be clean, bright, and free of redness and irritation, allowing you to apply makeup if desired.

Who Should Consider Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for all skin types and conditions. However, individuals with deep cystic acne may want to wait until their acne clears up before treatment.

This noninvasive and nonsurgical skin rejuvenating procedure suits those seeking complete rejuvenation. It is also a viable alternative to more intense techniques, especially for pregnant or nursing individuals, as no chemicals are utilized.

Dermaplaning Vs. Microdermabrasion

Both treatments are forms of exfoliation, but they employ different methods. Dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to safely remove the top layer of skin cells and fine hair. In contrast, microdermabrasion uses a device to exfoliate the skin, remove dead skin cells, and unclog pores.

Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion have different benefits. Dermaplaning removes fine hair, while microdermabrasion provides a deeper exfoliation for a brighter, more polished appearance.

Both methods are equally effective for exfoliating regardless of skin type or issues. The procedure chosen depends on personal preference.

That’s why, before undergoing any treatment for your skin, you should talk to a professional, experienced, board-certified dermatologist to explain your aesthetic goals and assess your skin condition in person.
