Dermaplane Facial Treatment: A Trending Choice for Diverse Skin Needs In the extensive array of contemporary facial treatments, dermaplaning has emerged as a highly favored option. This procedure, currently experiencing a surge in popularity, involves the gentle removal of the outermost layer of skin along with vellus hair. This process actively stimulates skin cell regeneration, leading to an enhanced skin texture and the achievement of a more radiant complexion.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating facial treatment. During this topical procedure, a specialist utilizes a non-invasive surgical scalpel technique to eliminate peach fuzz and dead skin cells. Peach fuzz refers to the fine facial hair. This treatment proves highly beneficial for addressing various skin issues, which will be discussed here. Think of it as an excellent chemical peel that removes a layer of dead skin cells but in a less aggressive manner and without chemicals.

How does dermaplaning skin tightening work?

The process of dermaplaning is intended for skin tightening and involves the use of a sterile surgical scalpel, used to gently scrape away the outermost layer of the skin, along with vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin cells. This non-invasive procedure promotes skin cell regeneration, enhancing skin texture and contributing to a more radiant complexion. The removal of dead skin cells and facial hair can result in a smoother and tightened appearance. Additionally, in some cases, Dermaplaning can be combined with treatments such as LED therapy to enhance skin tightening effects, as well as with radiofrequency and microneedling, amplifying the overall benefits of skin rejuvenation. Additionally, these procedures work synergistically to address various skin concerns and promote a more revitalized and youthful complexion

How to prep skin for dermaplaning

It is important that outer layer of skin is prepared properly prior to the application of the dermaplaning treatment. A meticulous cleansing of the skin with the purpose of removing debris and oily residues is the first step. It is necessary to ensure that the surface of the skin than has all moisture removed prior to the beginning of the actual dermaplaning procedure. Patients with active acne might not be suited for this treatment for this reason. Before a dermaplaningPro treatment, it is also advisable to avoid using certain skincare products and treatments that may increase skin sensitivity or pose a risk during the procedure. Here are some things you should avoid:

  • Retinoids: Stop using retinoid products, such as Retin-A or other prescription retinoids, for several days before dermaplaning. These products can heighten skin sensitivity and the risk of irritation.
  • Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) and Beta Hydroxy Acids (BHAs): Avoid using products containing AHAs (like glycolic acid) or BHAs (like salicylic acid) in the days leading up to your dermaplaning session. These ingredients can make the skin more susceptible to irritation.
  • Chemical Peels: Refrain from undergoing chemical peels or other exfoliating treatments in the immediate days before dermaplaning. Combining these treatments can increase the risk of over-exfoliation.
  • Prescription Medications: If you’re using prescription medications that affect the skin’s sensitivity, consult with your dermatologist or skincare professional before undergoing dermaplaning.
  • Facial Waxing: Avoid facial waxing or using hair removal creams on the areas to be treated with dermaplaning. These methods can leave the skin more vulnerable to irritation.
  • Active Infections or Skin Conditions: If you have an active skin infection, acne, cold sore, or any other skin condition in the treatment area, it’s advisable to postpone dermaplaning until the condition has fully healed.

After dermaplaning, it’s important to follow some post-treatment care to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential side effects. Here are general guidelines:

  1. Apply Sunscreen: Your skin may be more sensitive to the sun after dermaplaning. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to protect your skin from UV rays.
  2. Avoid Sun Exposure: Limit your sun exposure in the days following dermaplaning. If possible, stay out of direct sunlight, and wear a wide-brimmed hat if you need to be outdoors.
  3. Skip Active Ingredients: Avoid using products containing active ingredients such as retinoids, AHAs, BHAs, and vitamin C for a few days post-treatment. These ingredients can be too harsh on freshly exfoliated skin.
  4. Skip Harsh Skincare Products: Avoid abrasive or harsh skincare products, including scrubs, for a few days. Let your skin recover without any additional irritation.
  5. Keep it Gentle: Be gentle with your skin during cleansing and avoid excessive rubbing. Use a mild, hydrating cleanser.
  6. Moisturize: Hydrate your skin with a gentle and moisturizing product to maintain its suppleness.
  7. Avoid Picking or Scratching: Refrain from picking or scratching your skin. Let the healing process take place naturally.
  8. Avoid Swimming in Chlorinated Water: If possible, avoid swimming in pools with chlorinated water for a day or two after dermaplaning.
  9. Avoid Saunas and Steam Rooms: Steer clear of saunas, steam rooms, or any activity that involves excessive heat for the first few days post-treatment.
  10. Follow Specific Instructions: If you’ve had professional dermaplaning, follow any specific post-treatment instructions provided by your skincare professional.

Always consult with your skincare professional for personalized advice based on your skin type and the specific dermaplaning procedure you underwent.
