What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment using a medical blade to exfoliate the skin. It also removes the hair from the face, leaving the skin softer and smoother. It is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects.
Who is a candidate?
This is a great treatment for patients who are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin. It is also an excellent option for people who have excess vellum hair on the skin. Removing the vellum hair gives the patient healthier-looking skin. Dermaplaning can also be used for patients in preparation for other procedures such as laser treatments, chemical peels, or facials.
There is no downtime with this procedure. Patients should take care to apply sunscreen daily after this procedure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation.
