what is Dermaplaning?

If skin rejuvenation treatments, like facials and microdermabrasion, are no longer giving you the outcome you desire, but you want to avoid lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an innovative skin treatment and facial rejuvenation technique that smoothes the surface of your skin by gently removing dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a softer, more youthful look. Also called dermablading, this treatment is completed with a careful scraping technique while using a facial blade. Our group is thrilled to offer dermaplaning treatments at DeRosa Center Facial Aesthetics in Boston, MA. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it can provide smoother, younger-looking skin.

can i get dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning procedures are considered relatively safe and effective for women with all skin tones. Women with severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand, as should those with rosacea or highly sensitive skin.  Ideal candidates for dermaplaning procedures include patients searching for an alternative to chemical peels or microdermabrasion and who have fine facial hair or an uneven skin tone.  It's a popular choice for those who have an event, such as a wedding or holiday, and want their make-up to be applied flawlessly. 

how is dermaplaning performed?

We complete dermaplaning treatments in our office as an outpatient procedure. After we clean your skin, we will carefully scrape the surface of the face with a blade. The technician will repeatedly skim the surface of your skin until the treatment area or entire face is completed. The amount of time needed depends on whether a section or the whole face is addressed. At your consultation, we will provide additional information and answer any questions you might have.

how long is recovery after dermaplaning?

In the hours following your dermaplaning session, you may find your face to be pink. This is a normal side effect that will fade in the coming days. It's common for peeling to occur as the skin heals. But it is important not to scratch the treatment area, and you should let your skin heal naturally. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be sensitive in the days and weeks after the procedure. Patients can expect results soon after as dermaplaning produces softer, smoother skin instantaneously. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, the technician will discuss an improved skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
