Discover the Benefits of Dermaplaning & Microplaning
Dermaplaning, also referred to as microplaning, is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to scrape dead skin cells and hair from your face. Because your skin is frequently exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and UV rays, it can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull and aged. Dermaplaning clears away your damaged skin cells so that new skin cells can be revealed and provide a fresh, smooth, and younger appearance. This treatment can also be used to remove light scarring, pockmarks on your skin caused by acne, and to remove unwanted hair. Dermaplanes are often combined with other facials, chemical peels, and microneedling, as it allows for products and treatments to penetrate deeper into the skin for better results.
Before your dermaplaning treatment, your Regenesis Aesthetician will review your medical history, discuss your skin type and condition, and review all the treatments that can help you achieve the specific results you want.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and is frequently used for:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- unwanted hair
- fine wrinkles
The Dermaplaning Facial Procedure
Your aesthetician will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle in short strokes. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as we gently work to exfoliate the skin. During a dermaplaning procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain, most patients describe a tingling sensation. After the exfoliation is completed, we will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe and apply sunscreen to protect your face.
Dermaplaning Treatment - No Recovery or Downtime
You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience some redness after the treatment but it will quickly fade. Most of our patients notice that their skin looks brighter immediately after a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to see the full results.
After a dermaplaning treatment, you’ll need to be extra careful to avoid sun exposure. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning, or create pigment blotches on your freshly uncovered skin cells. For a couple of weeks after your dermaplaning treatment, don’t leave the house without applying sunscreen to your face. Note that dermaplaning results are not permanent. Dead cells will naturally start to build up again and need to be removed periodically.
How to Prepare for Your Dermaplaning Facial
If you have a current active acne flare-up, you may need to reschedule your appointment to avoid irritating your skin further or tearing your skin’s surface. You also need to avoid direct sun exposure in the week prior to your appointment, as sun damage, such as sunburn, could compromise your skin and make the treatment painful.
