Great for achieving ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter-looking skin, Dermaplaning is a gentle, physical exfoliation using a sterile surgical blade to lightly remove the top layer of dead skin and “peach fuzz”. Your skin faces many harsh factors each day, like UV rays from the sun, environmental pollution, and chemicals from beauty products. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive way to achieve healthy, younger-looking skin.

Dermaplaning Explained

Dermaplaning is a procedure that removes the top layers of the skin with a special scraping tool. When performed by an expert, Dermaplaning reduces the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, and acne scars. It can also give you a smoother face, free of peach fuzz. 

Dermaplaning reduces the amount of damaged skin and makes it possible for new, healthy skin cells to establish themselves in their place. This treatment also stimulates a process called collagenesis, which is the development of new collagen cells. This process is important, because collagen is vital to making the skin look hydrated and healthy. Unfortunately, as we age collagen production declines.

How Does The Dermaplaning Treatment Work?

This typically hour-long process is essentially a thorough exfoliation of your skin. A special, delicate blade is used to skim dead or damaged skin cells from the surface of our face. The blade is sterilized and then positioned at a 45-degree angle before being dragged gently across the face. Scar tissue, debris, and old skin cells are removed. The procedure is painless and does not require the use of harsh chemicals.

Is Dermaplaning Right For Me?

Dermaplaning is a safe treatment for any skin type that typically has no side effects. Those with sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, dry skin, blemishes, or acne scars are great candidates for dermaplaning. After the treatment, they find their skin restored to a healthy, smoother, and brighter state.

In some cases when there is an active acne breakout or open wounds on the face, Dermaplaning is not appropriate. During your consultation, the expert staff at Robb Facial Plastic Surgery will carefully assess the condition of your facial skin and your cosmetic goals before proceeding with treatment.

What Will Dermaplaning Do For My Skin?

We love seeing the results after a patient undergoes dermaplaning because they look immediately fresh-faced and rejuvenated. Their skin is smoother and appears well-hydrated. Fine lines, blemishes, and acne scars are visibly reduced. Those that suffer from hyperpigmentation see a much more even skin tone. Pores are also cleaned and reduced in size.

Dermaplaning Recovery And Aftercare

Good protection from the sun is always important, but especially moreso after dermaplaning. You should wear sunscreen and hats with adequate coverage, while taking care to stay in the shade as much as possible. Exfoliating products and skin creams with retinol should be avoided for at least a day.

The use of makeup is okay right after, but many patients choose to wait at least a day. There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning. Patients can undergo a dermaplaning treatment and return to their normal activities immediately. In some patients, redness will be a factor for a few hours.
