What Is Dermaplaning?
A dermaplane facial is a non-surgical skin treatment that uses a surgical blade to slough off dead skin cells and remove the fine baby hairs from your face and neck gently and safely.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is generally considered a safe cosmetic procedure.
Here are the pros and cons:
Dermaplaning can help minimize the appearance of
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Dull skin
- Sagging skin
Additional benefits include
- Renewed complexion
- Deeper product penetration for serums and creams
- Smoother makeup application
- Removal of dead skin cells and peach fuzz
Dermaplaning, as with any medical procedure, does carry some risk. However, when done correctly, side effects are rare. Here are some possible side effects
- Mild redness immediately following the procedure
- Temporary sensitivity to sun exposure
- Skin discoloration
- Increased risk of infection
- Scarring (e.g., keloid or hypertrophic)
Is Dermaplaning Safe?
Yes! Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when performed by a certified aesthetic consultant. Though most people do not experience side effects, this treatment may irritate some skin conditions. Be sure to consult with a dermatologist first if you have
- Very sensitive skin
- Active cold sores
It is non-surgical, so there is no downtime for recovery, and it can be completed in about 30 minutes.
How Often Should You Dermaplane?
This treatment is considered a more intensive form of exfoliation because it removes the outermost layer of skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our certified aesthetic consultants recommend dermaplaning at our clinic in Knoxville, TN once every 3-4 weeks for ideal results.
How Long Does Dermaplaning Last?
It is important to note that dermaplane facial results are temporary. Depending on how quickly your skin and hair regrow, treatments can last up to 4 weeks.
Four weeks is the average time it takes the skin to complete a rejuvenation cycle. Monthly treatments allow your skin to resurface between sessions.
In some cases, however, we may recommend more or less frequent visits based on an individual’s skin type and unique needs.
