DermaPlaning

When it comes to skin care, we often get to a point where we consider seeking outside help. Many people including celebrities are turning to professional DermaPlaning.

DermaPlaning is one of the most common treatments offered by qualified Aestheticians. Quick, pain free and relatively safe, this procedure can do wonders for your skin.

DermaPlaning, or blading, is an exfoliating treatment that provides an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is a good choice for anyone who has fine facial hair (peach fuzz), extremely sensitive skin, redness or rosacea, or visible facial veins. The dermaplaning treatment is done by an experienced aesthetician who uses a blade to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as "peach fuzz". A noticeable improvement is immediate with smoother texture and fresh skin appearance. Hair returns softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment.

The DermaPlaning Procedure

DermaPlaning is performed with a special handheld instrument called a dermatome. The provider smoothes away the surface layer of the skin using the dermatome. This procedure is highly customizable and can be performed on small areas or on the entire face. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to a full hour to complete the procedure, depending your needs and your skin. Sometimes, patients opt to undergo the DermaPlaning procedure in conjunction with extraction.

After the DermaPlaning procedure, the skin may be red and swollen. Tingling and aching can be managed with pain medication prescribed by the doctor or nurse practitioner. Over the next three to five days, the results will begin to emerge. Since this new skin will be sensitive, it is important to minimize sun exposure during this time and follow the aftercare provided.

How often is this procedure performed?

The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days and since DermaPlaning removes about 2-3 weeks-worth of dead skin cells, it's best to wait about 3-4 weeks between treatments. 

What skin types/conditions can be treated?

The only skin that probably shouldn't be treated with DermaPlaning is acne-prone skin. The oil from the sebaceous glands needs to travel up and connect with the vellous hair in order for it to be excreted.  If the hair is removed and the the oil builds up, the glands are obstructed and cause more breakouts.
