When skin rejuvenation treatments, such as facials and microdermabrasion, no longer help you attain your cosmetic goals or you want to avoid invasive treatments, dermaplaning is a good option. Dermaplaning is popular because it provides smoother, younger-looking skin and is noninvasive. This treatment enhances the skin's texture by stripping away dead skin cells and vellus facial hair. Sometimes called dermablading, we perform the procedure using a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Our group is thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at Versailles Medical Spa in Darien, CT.
Is Dermaplaning For You?
Dermablading and dermaplaning are safe skin treatments and work well on most skin types. Women and men with severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. Ideal candidates for this procedure include clients who do not want chemical peels or microdermabrasion or find that they no longer work. You might be an excellent candidate for dermablading or dermaplaning if you have:
- Rosacea or sensitive skin
- Fine facial hair
Dermaplaning procedures are performed as an outpatient treatment at our office. Once your skin is washed, we will carefully scrape the surface of your face with a blade. A technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until your entire face is treated. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether a section or the whole face is being addressed. At a consultation beforehand, we will discuss what to expect during the dermaplaning process and proper aftercare.
Your Dermaplaning Treatment
Following your dermaplaning treatment, your face may look a little red. The redness will subside after a few hours. In addition to the redness, some people experience whiteheads or peeling skin a few days after the treatment. If your skin peels, it's important not to pick at the skin because this could damage the healthy skin. Additionally, following the treatment, patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin is sensitive. You can expect to see results right after dermaplaning because it reveals softer, smoother skin right away. To help protect your newly revealed skin, our team will discuss a skin care routine, which includes the regular application of sunscreen.
