Dermaplaning has become a quick and easy way to keep your skin looking healthy and fresh. At the Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas, we are proud to offer a rejuvenating dermaplaning treatment that is painless, fast, and efficient to help you achieve a brighter, more even skin complexion.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple treatment that involves the use of a dermatome, which can lightly remove facial hair and dead skin from the outermost layer of the face. As a hand-held instrument, a dermatome has an oscillating blade that can help remove surface-level impurities, improving skin tone, complexion, and overall appearance.
What Conditions Does Dermaplaning Treat?
Dermaplaning is a simple treatment that treats many visible facial imperfections, including small hairs and peach fuzz, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dead skin on your face. By shaving off this uppermost layer of skin, dermaplaning encourages the skin on your face to remain as fresh and new as possible, reducing the appearance of fine lines, scarring, and texture.
Who Is a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Ideal candidates for dermaplaning are those who have aging, dry, or rough skin, uneven skin tone, peach fuzz, or shallow acne scarring. Candidates who want to eliminate these facial imperfections will benefit from dermaplaning, but it’s important to remain realistic about their results.
Dermaplaning is a great treatment option for pregnant patients and those with sensitive skin who may not be able to undergo laser skin treatment or chemical peels.
If you have active or cystic acne, psoriasis, or eczema on the face, dermaplaning will not be recommended for you.
Are There Any Risks with Dermaplaning?
While dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure, this treatment can come with several possible side effects. These side effects may include:
- Acne breakout
In very rare cases, dermaplaning may cause infection or scarring, but under the care of Dr. Wesley Anne Brady, patients can feel confident any potential side effects are quickly and easily addressed.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Although dermaplaning cannot stop the aging process, it offers many benefits that can help reduce signs of aging on the face, as well as improve your complexion. Benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Easy hair removal with no downtime required
- Reveals new, undamaged skin
- Brightens skin tone
- Reduces hyperpigmentation
- Improves texture
- Smooths the skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Eliminates dead skin cless
- Allows for smoother application of makeup products
- Reduces the risk of bacteria building up on the face
- Improves overall complexion
How Long Do the Results of Dermaplaning Last?
Results from dermaplaning are temporary, but they can last for up to four weeks. By the end of four weeks, your skin will have completed a rejuvenation cycle, signaling the need to shed new dead skin cells on the face. To maintain a bright, even complexion, we recommend patients undergo a dermaplaning treatment every four weeks.
