Dermaplaning is one of the best and newest therapies now offered on the market. In order to maximize the results of facials, lasers, and other therapies, we offer dermaplaning as a service at the Aesthetically Pleasing Medical Spa in Encinitas.

What Is Dermaplaning?

This cutting-edge exfoliation method known as “dermaplaning” uses deliberate, trained strokes of a medical tool to gently exfoliate dull skin cells and fine, vellus hair, sometimes known as peach fuzz.

Dermaplaning is an efficient exfoliating option for sensitive skin types to microdermabrasion or chemical peels since it causes little to no surface discomfort. It is excellent for preparing the skin before peels and enzyme treatments and for enhancing the penetration of active components in skincare products used at our spa and at home.

Dermaplaning is the go-to procedure to get ready for high-profile events because it leaves the skin moisturized and smooth, providing the ideal surface for applying cosmetics.

What Are The Benefits Of Dermaplaning?

In addition to leaving your skin gleaming and feeling new and fresh, removing the outer layer of dead skin and vellus hair from the skin has the following advantages:

  • Decreases the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Eliminates dead skin cells that might cause blocked pores
  • Improves acne-prone skin
  • Minimizes the visible hyperpigmentation
  • Allows for better skin product penetration
  • Preps the skin before facials, chemical peels, and IPL treatments

What Happens During Dermaplaning?

Your skin is subjected to damaging substances on a daily basis, such as environmental contaminants and UV damage, which causes the skin to seem dull and aging. Dead skin cells and vellus hair on the face are manually removed using dermaplaning, a non-invasive exfoliating skin treatment. To start, the skin is cleaned to get rid of any debris, oil, and germs before the process.

The skin is subsequently treated with a specialized beauty oil to guarantee a gentle treatment that doesn’t pull at the skin. A sterile 10-gauge blade is gently passed at a 45-degree angle over the skin while keeping the skin tight. This reveals younger skin below by removing the top layer of dead skin.

What Is The Aftercare For Dermaplaning?

Patients may resume their routine activities right after their dermaplaning procedure and start enjoying their immediately smoother skin.

Is Dermaplaning Painful?

The process of dermaplaning is absolutely painless for patients. Despite using a surgical-grade scalpel, no incisions are ever produced since the skin is merely slid over.

To prevent the blade from yanking at the skin while yet effectively skimming the top layer of dead skin, specialized beauty oil is used.

What Regions Are Treatable With Dermaplaning?

The face, neck, and decollete may all be gently shaved with dermaplaning.

How Often May The Treatment Be Done?

Dermaplaning may be done every three to four weeks.
