Dermaplanning

Dermaplanning is an excellent treatment for freshening and vitalizing our skin, and may also be used to enhance the absorption of a number of plant/chemical peels. Dermaplanning is usually only performed on the face and generally excludes any blading of the nose, eye lids, neck, or chest. Furthermore, it is recommended that the procedure be done every 3 to 4 weeks (or once a month), which coincides with a normal skin cycle of approximately 30 days. Along with sloughing away dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help reduce the visibility of acne scarring and slight wrinkling, as well as do away with extraneous vellous (translucent) hairs on the face.

How it Works

The Dermaplane Aesthetician carefully exfoliates the top layer of the skin with a specialized surgical blade. The process removes dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and stimulates new skin development. This procedure takes place in the medical center and time allotted is typically 30 minutes. There is no “down time” involved and you may return to your office or your busy schedule afterwards. Patients who routinely receive Dermaplane treatments comment on the smoothness of their complexion and its “baby skin like quality” and see an immediate improvement to the radiance of their skin tone.

Dermaplanning: The Beauty Secret Hollywood Doesn't Want You to Know About.

Celebs seem to possess naturally glowing skin, luscious locks, and wide-awake eyes—partly because of their good genes, partly due to their amazing makeup artists and hair stylists, and partly because of some very well-kept industry secrets. Dermaplaning is one of the latter chances are, even if you haven’t heard of it, you’ve seen the results.

Additional Benefits

There are several benefits to blading that may make it the ideal method of skin exfoliation for you. First of all, no chemicals are involved, which means less irritation for your newly sensitive skin. Secondly, a session will generally last no more than 30 minutes and won’t leave you with a red, swollen complexion afterwards. In fact, results can be noticed immediately. Furthermore, because the blade being used is small, dermaplaning can target specific problem areas more easily and skillfully than other procedures that use larger instruments and focus on the face as a whole.

To top that off, dermaplaning is relatively inexpensive when compared to similar procedures such as VI chemical peels and dermabrasion. Dermaplaning is also frequently used prior to another facial treatment. Since dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and stimulates the surface of the skin, chemical or plant based skin formulations are absorbed more efficiently and results are remarkably improved.

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years, but many estheticians don’t even know it exists, and certainly, many don’t use it. When patients hear the word dermaplaning, they quickly associate the term with the procedure known as dermabrasion, and won’t even consider it as a possible treatment. Dermabrasion is a medical procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis using a whisk-like device. There are many complications associated with dermabrasion, including infections and scarring, which is why it is not commonly used anymore. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is a simple shaving of the epidermis.

Because dermaplanning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to the fetus or the child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment. Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Physicians may recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for medical procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It also may be used by estheticians to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial.

Dermaplanning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpig­mentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.

What the patient can expect

There is no downtime associated with this procedure. The patient should be educated about the importance of using sunscreen to reduce the chance of hyperpig­mentation. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time.

Contrain­dications

The only contrain­dications to dermaplaning include an allergy to nickel, numerous raised lesions on the skin and inflamed acne.
