If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to achieve brighter, smoother skin, dermaplaning may be the right treatment for you. At SkinSmart Dermatology of Sarasota, FL, our providers, Drs. Elizabeth Callahan and William Adams, may recommend this procedure for patients ready to enhance and transform their skin’s health and appearance. An esthetician performs this procedure in our office and can educate patients on the many benefits it provides.
What is dermaplaning?
Our estheticians describe dermaplaning as a type of physical exfoliation procedure during which an esthetician uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your face. This process reveals a brighter, smoother complexion and can also help products penetrate more deeply into the skin.
How does an esthetician perform dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a mechanical exfoliation of the skin using a surgical scalpel. The esthetician will hold the skin taut and scrape off the dead skin cells in upward motions. This process reveals a brighter, smoother complexion and can also help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Dermaplaning can be performed on all skin types and is especially beneficial for those with dry, flaky skin.
What can I expect after the procedure?
This treatment is quick and relatively painless, but it does require some downtime as your skin adjusts to the new layer of cells. You may experience some redness and sensitivity immediately after dermaplaning, but this should subside within a few hours. For best results, you should avoid wearing makeup or putting anything on your face for at least 12 hours after the treatment.
Dermaplaning is often used in conjunction with other facial treatments such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion. This allows the esthetician to customize the treatment to each individual’s needs and provides the best possible results. If you’re considering dermaplaning, be sure to ask about adding it to your next facial appointment. You won’t be disappointed!
