What is Dermaplaning?
If you want to exfoliate your skin but don’t want to expose yourself to harsh chemicals or abrasive treatments, Dermaplaning may be the solution for you. At Dermacare Hampton Roads, we offer Dermaplaning, one of the least invasive skin exfoliation treatments available. This procedure gently removes the outermost layer of skin and creates a refreshed, rejuvenated look for any skin type.
How does Dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning involves lightly feathering the outermost layers of the skin with a surgical blade. The skin is pulled taut, and care is taken to gently scrape only the outer layers so the skin is not cut or nicked. During Dermaplaning, the skin is resurfaced, removing buildup of dead skin cells and leaving smoother, glowing skin.
What Dermaplaning Treats:
Men and women who prefer a gentle, subtle exfoliation treatment are generally good candidates for dermaplaning. Those with certain skin infections or conditions may require further evaluation before treatment is approved, and individuals who desire more dramatic results may be advised to seek other alternatives.
Dermaplaning also removes “peach fuzz” on the face to improve the appearance of the skin, and individuals with mild lines and wrinkles often find their visible signs of aging reduced after Dermaplaning treatment.
While Dermaplaning can be a standalone treatment, it is also often used in conjunction with other rejuvenation treatments to further improve the skin.
What to Expect:
Dermaplaning only provides results for a short amount of time, and should be considered as one of the options of a good skin care regimen that can help maintain your refreshed, glowing skin.
