As we begin to age, the dead skin cells on our face can start to form a dull, uneven texture. Luckily, dermaplaning is available to help improve facial skin by gently removing the dead, outer layer of skin and fine hair (known as peach fuzz). This process provides a smooth, vibrant, refreshed appearance. The benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Smoother, softer skin
- Treatment for all skin types and ages
- Enhanced penetration of skincare products for deeper absorption and cleansing
- Better makeup application and smoother wear, without caking up or drying out
- Easy combination with other procedures, such as laser treatments or chemical peels
This affordable treatment can significantly improve your skin for $100 to $200 per visit.
Is dermaplaning right for me?
This noninvasive technique for addressing skin concerns is beneficial for patients of almost any age, ethnicity, or skin type. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Goldschmidt to see if you are a candidate for dermaplaning.
What is the process for dermaplaning?
A licensed aesthetician cleanses the skin and thoroughly dries it. Next, the skin is held taut, and a sterile #10 blade or surgical scalpel is used to gently and strategically remove the outer layer of skin. When conducted carefully, this treatment is painless and similar to shaving.
Dermaplaning takes about 30 minutes to complete, and there is no downtime following the treatment. After the dead skin cells and fine hairs are removed, sunblock is then applied to the skin. Experiencing sensitivity is normal, and sun exposure should be avoided.
Many patients decide to combine their dermaplaning procedure with a HydraFacial® to unclog pores and infuse peptides, antioxidants, and nourishment to heal and protect the skin.
How long is the recovery period?
There is typically no pain involved with dermaplaning, though the skin may be sensitive or tender after your treatment. Sun exposure should be kept to a minimum with plenty of sunscreen and sun protection. Any facial redness should heal within a few days.
What results can I expect?
After your treatment, your skin should feel softer and more even. Skincare products can absorb easier, replenishing any lost moisture. Results can be long-lasting and satisfying, with healthier facial skin for up to one month following your treatment.
