What is dermaplaning?

dermaplaningAre you looking for a quick but effective way to refresh your skin while reducing acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles? You would no doubt like it to be more effective than those creams and serums you can get at the drugstore, and it would be nice if the procedure didn’t take long and you could get back to your day as soon as it’s over. Does this sound like a procedure that is too good to be true? It’s not, with dermaplaning! 

What is the procedure for dermaplaning?

The procedure is basically a really intense exfoliation of the skin. A special blade is used to remove the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and dirt and oil. Besides giving skin a younger, brighter look, it also removes peach fuzz, minimizes acne scars, relieves congested pores, and reduces fine lines and wrinkles. 

Why should I try dermaplaning?

There are many advantages to dermaplaning, besides the great results you’ll see. There are few side effects – your skin will be a bit pink and you may have some flaking, which can be treated with moisturizer. There is no downtime, and you can get right back to your normal activities as soon as you are done. The results are long-lasting. The procedure only takes about 30 minutes to complete, although many patients combine it with a facial or a chemical peel, which can add about 15 minutes. 

Another benefit to dermaplaning is that patients say there is no pain at all. You won’t even have to have numbing cream applied before the procedure. Perhaps the only caution against dermaplaning is for patients with cystic acne – these patients will need to wait until their breakout is clear before having dermaplaning. 

Dermaplaning may just be the perfect procedure if your skin needs a pick-me-up. It is a quick but very effective way to get rid of dirt and oil trapped in skin while reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and removing that light peach fuzz hair. You’ll have beautiful, glowing skin within just a few minutes. Call Stockton Dermatology in Phoenix, AZ, for a dermaplaning appointment. Call (480) 610-6366 today!
