The Facts That You Should Know About Dermaplaning

November 4, 2019 by A Younger You


Do you have dry skin or maybe peach fuzz that is making your skin look dull? A facial treatment like dermaplaning can eliminate dead skin and tiny hairs and leave your skin glowing and youthful. If you are wondering which treatment is right for you, call A Younger You Medical Spa in Burlington, WI for a consultation today. We will help you find the best treatment to get young and healthy skin.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating skin treatment that does not require any harsh chemicals. A dermaplane treatment removes tiny hairs and dead skin cells from the outermost layers of skin to give your skin a chance to restore itself. The treatment can help with acne scars and dark areas on the face. Dull and uneven textured skin and fine hairs, in particular, can benefit greatly from treatment.

The treatment works to smooth skin in the following areas:

  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Forehead
  • Neck
  • Nose

Who Is a Good Dermaplane Candidate?

A dermaplaning treatment is good for all ages and skin types. Both men and women can benefit from treatment. The treatment is an excellent alternative to lasers and chemicals which some people may not want to come in contact with. Pregnant and nursing mothers can incorporate treatment into their skincare routine without the worry of chemicals.

A dermaplaning treatment is not recommended for those with acne. Patients should always take the recommendation of a specialist into account before choosing any treatment.

What Are the Benefits?

This treatment provides some of the best exfoliation you can get, gently removing the dead skin cells and tiny hairs from your face. Tiny hairs, sometimes called “peach fuzz”, may not seem like an issue, but they can make your face appear dull and rough. This treatment gives you smooth skin and eliminates peach fuzz like no other treatment. The smooth skin will allow moisturizers to absorb into your skin better and makes putting on makeup easier.

Treatment can provide the following benefits:

  • Smooth skin
  • Reduction in acne scars and dark spots
  • Even skin texture
  • Better absorption of skincare products
  • Fresh and glowing skin
  • No hairs to trap debris and oil

There is no downtime or healing time associated with dermaplane treatments. Some other treatments can have a healing time after the treatment where you won't be able to continue your normal routine right away. With a dermaplane treatment, you can get back to work or your normal routine without skipping a beat. Just be sure to take care of your newly repaired skin.

Safe and Quick Treatment

Dermaplaning is safe and uses no chemicals or lasers. It is a recommended treatment for those with sensitivities to chemicals or laser treatments. It can also be a safe alternative for pregnant and nursing mothers who cannot risk chemical treatments.

The treatment usually takes only 30 minutes, so it can be done during a lunch break or whenever you have a bit of free time. You can also have a dermaplane treatment before other treatments to enhance the absorption and effectiveness of skincare products.

What to Expect

When you make an appointment with A Younger You Medical Spa, you will first consult with a specialist. The specialist will help you identify your goals and what treatment is best for you. The treatment is conducted by a nurse or specialist using a surgical scalpel. The scalpel is used to remove the dead skin, dry skin, and tiny hairs from your face and so remove those patches of unevenness, blemishes, and dull skin you dislike.

The scalpel does not go deep into the skin, and our specialist will hold your skin so there is no risk of cutting. The point of the treatment is to remove the dead skin cells so your skin will repair itself. The fresh new skin cells have a young and healthy look that will make your skin radiant. With the tiny hairs and imperfections removed, your skin will be more smooth and able to keep debris and oils from forming.

What Should You Do After Dermaplaning?

After a dermaplane treatment, there is no healing or downtime period. The removal of the dead skin cells will not cause significant damage, and your skin will heal quickly. It is best to follow general skincare habits after the treatment to keep your fresh skin from getting damaged. Be sure to clean and hydrate the skin. The skin should also be protected from direct sun exposure by coverage and sunscreen that prevents UVA and UVB rays from damaging the skin.

How Long Does It Last?

The time between treatments can vary based on your skin type. The smooth and glowing look of the skin will last while the skin regrows and is new. As the skin becomes damaged, it slowly becomes dull and you lose smoothness and glow. For most patients, a monthly treatment is optimal as the results will last for about three to four weeks.

Can Dermaplane Treatment Be Combined With Other Treatments?

Dermaplaning is an effective way of exfoliating the skin and removes dead skin cells that may be blocking skincare products. After treatment, the skin can more easily absorb nutrients, moisturizers, essential oils and other ingredients used in traditional facials. The treatment can be used before a facial to greatly enhance the effectiveness of the facial, leaving your skin smoother and more glowing than a traditional facial alone. The treatment can even be used before a chemical peel or HydraFacial to yield better results.

We also offer a hydrating mask after a dermaplane treatment. The skin is already exfoliated, and the hairs that trap debris and oils have been removed, so using a hydrating mask after a dermaplane treatment allows the hydration to penetrate the skin to nourish and moisturize.
