Dermaplaning Treatments In Sarasota, FL

Dreaming of having a baby-smooth complexion? This and more is possible when you undergo a dermaplaning procedure at SkinSmart Dermatology. This procedure is perfect for those who want to even out their complexion without hassle or downtime. Dermaplaning in Sarasota, FL, can give you the clearest, smoothest, and cleanest complexion of your life!

What Is Dermaplaning?

The dermablade hair removal procedure is an anti-aging skin care treatment, which does not use chemicals. This procedure is highly effective in exfoliating the skin. This technique removes surface debris with a sterile surgical scalpel (dermaplaning blade). Our aesthetician then uses the scalpel while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions to gently “shave” the skin’s surface. This effectively removes the topmost layer of dead skin.

The added bonus is the removal of vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, which makes the skin feel and look smoother. This procedure does not cause trauma to the skin and can be performed every three to four weeks. There is typically no downtime for this procedure.

Benefits Of Dermaplaning?

  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Promotes smoother skin
  • Safe procedure for removing dead skin cells and “peach fuzz”
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Diminishes the look of fine lines
  • Works on all skin types

Can Dermaplaning be combined with other treatments?

Our esthetician, often combines dermaplaning with a HydraFacial treatment for maximum results. Doing this can help increase the quality of skin texture, as well as give you more radiant looking skin. Learn more about HydraFacial here.

How Long Does Dermaplaning Last?

Just one 30-minute session removes up to three weeks of dead skin cells, oils, and dirt that have accumulated. These results can last up to four weeks. The rate of skin rejuvenation plays a factor in how long dermaplaning lasts, but with good maintenance and a consistent skincare routine, you can maintain your dermaplaning results for longer.

How Often Should You Dermablade Your Face?

Once a month is recommended for the best results. Doing this more than once a month can lead to possible redness and inflammation. Overworking the skin can also lead to irritation. Doing it once a month will also give your skin cells time to heal and regenerate. It is also simply not necessary to do this procedure more than once a month, as one 30-minute session removes up to 3 weeks worth of oils, dirt, and other impurities.

What Are The Risks of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is typically a safe cosmetic procedure. However, there are a few risks and concerns you need to take into consideration before proceeding with treatment. 

These risks include the following:

  • Redness
  • Skin irritation
  • Skin sensitivity
  • Skin dryness
  • Increased risk of infection
  • Increased risk of cuts
  • Ingrown hairs
  • Increased sensitivity to the sun
  • Increased potential of exacerbating skin conditions, such as acne, rosacea, and eczema.
  • Being unsatisfied with the results of your treatment.

Dr. Callahan will go into more detail about these risks during your consultation with her. In addition to going over the risks, Dr. Callahan will also assess your medical history as well as the quality of your skin. This will give her the information she needs to determine the best course of action.

Is Dermaplaning Suitable For All Skin Types?

Dermaplaning is generally safe for most skin types, including those with sensitive skin and darker skin types. In fact, dermaplaning is an ideal cosmetic procedure for darker skin types as it can help reduce dullness and even out the skin tone. Be sure to consult Dr. Callahan with any questions and concerns you may have before beginning treatment.

Who is Not a Good Candidate For Dermaplaning?

As with any cosmetic procedure, patients need to be considered an eligible candidate before they can receive treatment. While dermaplaning is generally safe, there are some factors that can disqualify you from being eligible for treatment.

These factors include the following:

  • You have active acne
  • You have rosacea
  • You have a skin condition, such as eczema or psoriasis
  • You have sun-damaged skin
  • You are currently using acne medication, such as Accutane
  • You have a blood clotting disorder
  • You have a history of cold sores
  • You are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
  • You have an open wound
  • You have a skin infection
  • You have unrealistic expectations regarding treatment

If you meet any of the criteria, Dr. Callahan will instruct you on how to proceed before you can receive treatment. Alternatively, she can also recommend safer alternatives to ensure you meet your aesthetic goals. 

Can You Combine Dermaplaning With Other Skincare Treatments?

Yes, patients can combine dermaplaning with other skincare treatments, such as facials, microdermabrasion, and even chemical peels. Combining treatments is a great way to enhance your appearance and see more optimal results. Dr. Callahan can give you recommendations on the best skincare treatments to combine dermaplaning with based on your skin type and needs.

Is There Downtime After a Dermaplaning Procedure?

No, there is typically no downtime required after a dermaplaning procedure. It is performed in-office, and you can go right back to your regular activities immediately after treatment. However, you need to take care of your skin after your dermaplaning procedure is finished.

You can do this by applying sunscreen that has an SPF level of 30 or higher and limiting your sun exposure. Your skin is still sensitive once your dermaplaning treatment is complete and can increase your risk of having a complication if you are not diligent.
