Reveal Glowing, Beautiful Skin
Looking for the best way to remove dead surface skin to reveal the glowing complexion that’s hiding underneath? Then it’s time to add dermaplaning to your anti-aging arsenal.
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that uses a sharp surgical scalpel to gently scrape dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the skin’s surface. The exfoliating nature of this procedure helps to minimize uneven skin texture, scarring, and even wrinkles and fine lines. Dermaplaning may sound scary in theory, but it’s actually a very safe and effective procedure when performed by an experienced professional.
Dermaplaning is also a great treatment method for removing facial hair, as peach fuzz is removed along with dead skin cells. Regular dermaplaning procedures allow the skin to better absorb skincare products, leading to faster results from your skincare regimen.
Dermaplaning is now available at MD Cosmedx Laser and Wellness Center in Bowling Green, KY.
What Happens During the Treatment?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that’s ideal for most skin types, except for acneic skin; if you suffer from breakouts, wait until your skin is clear to have this procedure performed. Your MD Cosmedx aesthetician may also want to discuss any allergies or sensitivities your skin might have before moving forward with the procedure.
Your technician will cleanse your face before performing the procedure. Skin is held taut to ensure that the scalpel removes as much dead skin surface as possible. Short, swift strokes are used to minimize any discomfort associated with the procedure.
Dermaplaning takes about thirty minutes to perform. Results are immediate; in fact, many patients are blown away by how soft and smooth their skin feels right after the treatment.
It’s recommended that patients undergo dermaplaning every two months to maintain results.
Does the Treatment Hurt?
Although it sounds like this treatment should hurt, the truth is that dermaplaning feels similar to shaving. It’s extremely important to ensure that this procedure is being performed by a certified professional, like a dermatologist or a licensed aesthetician.
Is There Any Downtime?
There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning. However, your skin will be extremely sensitive to sunlight after the procedure, so it’s recommended that you wear sunscreen to reduce your risk for burns and hyperpigmentation.
