You know that saying, “her skin feels like a baby’s skin?” Well, dermaplaning helps to give you that smooth, soft skin from years gone by. Dermaplaning is a cosmetic dermatologic procedure that helps to improve your skin’s appearance by mechanically removing the top layers of the skin. During the procedure, our experienced aesthetician will use a special exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells from the topmost layers of your skin along with that unwanted peach fuzz! Afterward, your skin feels and appears smoother, more youthful, and brighter. Dermaplaning in Wellesley can also be incorporated into other treatments like facials or chemical peels to improve results.
Because dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells on the topmost layer of your skin, even your skincare products will perform better as they can more easily penetrate your healthy skin providing improved results. In addition to improving the general appearance and feel of your skin, many patients also find that their makeup goes on far more smoothly and lasts longer.
Dermaplaning is ideal for patients with aging, rough, dry skin or those with fine lines, acne scars, and superficial hyperpigmentation. It works on almost any skin type, even for patients with sensitive skin.
Dermaplaning might not be appropriate for candidates prone to acne and those with very dark, thick facial hair. It is also not ideal for patients taking blood thinners or Accutane or patients who have hemophilia, active shingles, or an allergy to nickel.
Your Dermaplaning Consultation
The initial consultation will include a discussion of what dermaplaning entails, your skin concerns, and your cosmetic goals. We will also discuss the preparation and aftercare steps.
During the dermaplaning treatment, a special exfoliating blade will be used to get rid of the dead skin cells and peach fuzz on the surface layer of the skin. The session may last for a few minutes to an hour. Some patients have it done on the entire face, while others opt for dermaplaning on a small area and have it done in stages.
After the procedure, a moisturizer will be applied to the skin. There is no need to take a leave from work, because the treatment requires no downtime or recovery time. Dermaplaning can be done every three to four weeks.
The results you get from your dermaplaning procedure will vary depending on your specific skin type and needs, but for most people, they last roughly three to four weeks. Schedule a monthly dermaplaning appointment with Premier Dermatology today to see the youthful effects for yourself!
