Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth.
Patients with sun damage, fine lines, very dry skin and dull skin are great candidates.
Your skincare products will also be more effective, since the product isn’t being blocked by dead skin cells and can penetrate the skin faster. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use Dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.
You’ll notice a difference in your skin’s texture and tone immediately. Your glow will last all month long. But since your skin is always growing, you’ll need to schedule an appointment every month or so to maintain your results.
It takes about 30 mins and costs anywhere between $100 – $250
There are no side effects but you will be more sensitive to sun. So be sure to wear sun protection to reduce any risk of hyperpigmentation.
