If you are interested in doing something to improve the condition of your skin, it is likely that you have looked at some over-the-counter skin care products and some of the cosmetic treatments that are available in some salons, spas, and dermatologist’s offices. In order to maintain healthy skin and in order to treat a variety of skin conditions, some form of exfoliation is needed. More and more people are turning to dermaplaning in order to have skin that is healthy, youthful, and free of blemishes. We would love to tell you how this treatment works and how it can benefit you.

The first thing that you should know about this treatment is that it does not involve the use of any harsh chemicals. If you have ever looked into chemical peels, you know that they definitely have their benefits. However, you may have some reservations about trying them. Or you may not qualify, perhaps because you are pregnant or nursing. No matter the reason, you will be happy to know that this treatment does not involve causing the skin to peel by using a chemical solution. It is actually a very simple and straightforward treatment.
The process involves a skin care professional gently scraping the outer layers of your skin using a surgical scalpel. While this treatment at first may sound a little bit scary, we want to assure you that it is completely safe when it is done by our professionals. This is not something that you would want to try at home or have a friend do.
Your skin will benefit in several ways when you have this treatment performed. First, removing the outer layers of skin is going to reveal the healthy skin that is underneath. If you have not had any professional exfoliation treatments performed recently, it is likely that you have a lot of dead skin cells, bacteria, and oil on your facial skin. This is causing your skin to look rough, dry, and may even cause acne. Once all of those things are removed, you are going to see a noticeable difference in the appearance of your skin. As you can see, having this treatment performed even one time will be beneficial.
We highly recommend that you have this treatment performed on a regular basis in order to get the best results. Many of our patients have scheduled this treatment one time per month. Not only does this keep their skin looking soft and smooth because the dead skin cells are regularly removed, but it encourages the skin to produce new skin cells more quickly. It will slowly be able to treat deeper skin issues that you may be having, like light scarring or fine lines and wrinkles.
Something that you will likely appreciate about dermaplaning is that the peach fuzz and hair will be removed from your face. If you regularly wax, you may not need to do so if you have this treatment performed on a regular basis. One of the benefits that this will provide is that your makeup is going to go on a lot more smooth. Your complexion will look noticeably better. When you touch your facial skin, you are going to notice that your skin feels as smooth as silk.
Are You a Good Candidate?
Because this treatment does not involve the use of harsh chemicals, lots of people qualify for it. It can be used on individuals who are in their younger years and are concerned about having blemish free skin. It can also be for older individuals who are fighting fine lines and wrinkles. Men and women make good candidates for dermaplaning.
If you have facial hair that is quite coarse and dark, this treatment may not be the best option for you. If you regularly remove this hair through waxing sessions, you do not likely deal with ingrown hairs or other negative side effects. However, if this hair was to be cut off with the surgical scalpel, it may lead to ingrown hairs and infections. When you visit us for your initial consultation, we would be happy to examine your facial skin and help you determine if this is the right option for you.
We recommend that you try this treatment out once or twice before having it performed immediately before an important event. You are not likely to deal with any side effects, but it is good to see how you react. It is likely that you will be impressed with the way your skin looks and feels after the treatment. Once our patients have had this treatment performed a time or two, they feel so confident in the way that their skin looks immediately after a treatment that they have it performed regularly before events where they want to look their best.
It is possible for you to apply your makeup as soon as the treatment is over. Many view this as a lunchtime treatment because it is non-invasive and allows you to get right back to normal activities as soon as it is over. However, some of our patients prefer to have this treatment performed at a time when they are able to go back home and allow their skin to breathe for a little while. Many decide to have it performed in the later afternoon hours or evening and then not apply their makeup again until the next day.
