Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair from the facial area. It removes excess dead skin from the face, improving the skin's overall appearance. This exfoliation treatment leaves skin looking and feeling smooth, healthy, and youthful. Dermaplaning also improves the effectiveness of chemical peels and facials, as the products are more easily absorbed when the skin surface has been properly prepared.
Dermaplaning may be right for you if you have sensitive skin or you struggle with facial ingrown hairs. The procedure facilitated at the best medical spa in Northeast Portland is also great for refining your complexion. It is a simple and safe procedure that removes dead skin and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. The treatment results in a softer complexion. A noticeable improvement is immediate, but the results can last up to four weeks.
Dermaplaning is a safe, simple procedure for exfoliating and ridding the skin. It requires no downtime, and normal activities can be resumed immediately. Dermaplaning is ideal for all skin types, and it can be used alone or in conjunction with another facial procedure.
This procedure is done in as little as 10-15 minutes, sometimes longer or shorter depending on the size of the area being treated and the type of dermaplaning technique being used by your esthetician at the best medical spa in Northeast Portland.
There is no downtime after dermaplaning. You may experience some redness that typically subsides within a few hours. It is normal for the skin to appear slightly dry and flaky due to the exfoliation of the skin.
Your skin will be red and sensitive after dermaplaning. This can last anywhere from 5-to 7 days.
After dermaplaning, your aesthetician will likely give you specific instructions on how to care for your skin. Those instructions will likely include the following:
- Avoid touching, rubbing or picking at your skin.
- Use a good moisturizer daily.
- Avoid putting makeup or other products on your skin for 24 hours after treatment.
- Avoid using any other facial treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, for one week after dermaplaning.
- Avoid using scrubs, brushes or exfoliants on your skin.
- Wear sunscreen daily.
Dermaplaning treatments are recommended once every 4-6 weeks. The treatment removes about ten days’ worth of dead skin cells and sebum buildup, so it’s best to space out your treatments accordingly.
