Dermaplaning Q & A

What is dermaplaning?

As far as minimally invasive procedures go, dermaplaning is one of the safest. It’s comparable to shaving your face, but instead of removing your unwanted hair, it removes the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. 

Your skin accumulates damage when you spend time in the sun, get dirty, and even use chemical products repeatedly. Using a medical-grade sterile blade, your provider at Facial Art Institute gently skims away the damaged layer along with peach fuzz hairs from your face. 

When a trained medical professional performs the procedure, you can get an even result with no damage to your healthy skin. The results are slightly different for everyone, but patients generally agree that it makes their skin look smoother and younger.

What does dermaplaning treat?

Dermaplaning procedures can target and treat many undesirable skin features, including some that you may have assumed were permanent. After your procedure, your renewed skin should show fewer:

  • Dull areas
  • Dry patches
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines
  • Sun spots
  • Peach fuzz

Following your procedure, your provider applies soothing aloe or other skin care substances and sunscreen to minimize redness and let your skin reach its beauty potential.

Am I a good candidate for dermaplaning?

Perhaps the most enticing part of dermaplaning is its lack of harsh chemicals that drive many patients away from seeking care for their sensitive skin. For this reason, many patients who struggle to find fitting treatments for their skin are candidates.

Your provider at Facial Art Institute reviews your skin concerns, medical history, and goals. They may decide that you can get dermaplaning if you:

  • Don’t form scars easily
  • Have only shallow acne scars
  • Dislike the look of your skin
  • Don’t have a tan or sunburn
  • Don’t have any active skin inflammation

You can get dermaplaning by itself or alongside a facial or other skin treatment. It’s possible that you’ll see some discoloration or whiteheads appear after your dermaplaning procedure, but these side effects are minimal and go away quickly.

If the tiny hairs or dry flakes on your skin bother you, book your dermaplaning appointment by phone or online at Facial Art Institute today.
