WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?
Dermaplaning is a type of manual exfoliation that removes the outmost layers of dead skin cells as well as the fine vellus hair of the face.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW?
Dermaplaning can be done alone or in conjunction with other treatments such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser-based skin care. This procedure should be done every three to four weeks to maintain the results. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. You should allow your skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 21 to 30 days before repeating the treatment. Depending on your skin’s condition, Dermaplaning can be combined with chemical peels, DermaSweep™ (microdermabrasion), ClearLift™ Lunch Time Face Lift, or the IPL Photo Facial for even better results.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
Dermaplaning is performed by using a scalpel to manually remove (by scraping) the dead skin cells from the epidermis. Dermaplaning will leave the skin vibrant and smooth.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AND WHEN CAN I RESUME MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
Dermaplaning offers a mild exfoliation and therefore requires no recovery time. You may resume your normal activities immediately after the procedure.
