What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, minimally invasive cosmetic skin care procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. It is gentle and very effective at reducing the appearance of acne scars, skin pitting, and discoloration. Dermaplaning facials can also remove unwanted facial hair. At 180 Medspa, our cosmetic experts have years of experience in dermaplaning in Winter Park, FL. We do not recommend trying to learn how to dermaplane at home. This treatment method is safest when performed by an expert in a clinical setting. Call us today to schedule a consultation and learn more about the benefits of dermaplaning.
The Dermaplaning Process
When you visit us for your dermaplane appointment, we ask that you arrive with a bare face, free of makeup and skin care products. We may gently clean your skin to remove any dirt, grease, oils, or bacteria. We will then use a special aesthetic instrument to shave away the uppermost layers of your skin. The top layers of your skin consist of dull, dead, and dry skin cells that increase your risk of clogged pores, acne, infections, flaky skin, and a dull complexion. Removing these layers reveals the healthy new skin underneath and can make your skin appear more youthful and radiant. If you are combining a dermaplaning facial with other cosmetic procedures or skin care treatments, like a chemical peel or laser treatment, these treatments will penetrate more deeply and have more significant results.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
One of the biggest dermaplaning benefits is removing unwanted hair and dry, dead skin cells. This leaves your skin vibrant and smooth, creating the perfect canvas for makeup and skin care products. Dermaplane facials also exfoliate the skin gently, revealing smoother and brighter skin and giving the complexion a rejuvenated and refreshed appearance. Your skin will look more even, and its texture will be smoother. Other benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Better absorption of skin care products and serums
- Deeper penetration of moisturizing products
- Enhanced effectiveness of other cosmetic and aesthetic treatments performed after dermaplaning
- Smoother, more radiant skin
- Safe removal of dull, dead, dry, and flaky skin that could be affecting your skin health and complexion
- Reduced risk of dangerous bacteria on the skin
- Lower chance of future breakouts, as bacteria and dead skin that could clog pores are removed
- As effective as a facial primer at preparing the skin for makeup
Comparing Dermaplaning to Other Exfoliation Methods
When you visit us for an initial consultation, we will discuss your options for cosmetic and aesthetic treatments, including laser and dermal fillers. We will review your skin concerns and goals and design a personalized treatment plan to address your needs. We’re happy to discuss how dermaplaning compares to other exfoliation methods. For instance, many of our clients ask about dermaplaning vs. microdermabrasion treatments. Microdermabrasion treatments are skin resurfacing procedures that exfoliate and remove dead, dry, and dull layers. The difference is the tools that are used. Dermaplaning uses a knife, scalpel, or razor to remove skin. Dermabrasion is a surgical procedure. Microdermabrasion is a non-surgical procedure that uses a special exfoliating blade or brush to smooth and exfoliate the skin.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?
One of the questions we get from clients most often is, ‘Is dermaplaning safe for everyone?’ The answer is yes: dermaplaning facials are safe when performed by a professional in a clinical setting. Trying to teach yourself how to dermaplane at home can increase your risk of skin infections and injuries. Dermaplaning should be performed in an aseptic environment to reduce the risk of introducing dangerous bacteria onto the skin. You are a good candidate for dermaplaning if you have aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin. You should also consider dermaplaning if you have acne scars, fine lines, discoloration, or hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning is safe for adults, including pregnant women, but you should not try dermaplaning if you have active acne, a rash or skin infection, rosacea, highly sensitive skin, are prone to cold sores, or have a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis. You should also avoid dermaplaning for at least six weeks after any facial surgery, like a facelift.
How Often Can You Get Dermaplaning Facials?
In general, you can get dermaplaning facials once a month. Regular exfoliation is very beneficial for your skin, and most people notice that the benefits of dermaplaning begin to subside after 3-4 weeks. To prolong their effectiveness, we can also combine dermaplaning with other cosmetic and aesthetic treatments. We may recommend combining a dermaplane facial with a chemical peel or laser treatment.
