So, what does dermaplaning do, and how should you prepare for your treatment? To learn more, contact our aesthetic practice in Boynton Beach, FL, and schedule your dermaplaning facial today.

What does dermaplaning do, and how can it help my skin?

You can have a fresher, smoother complexion without an extensive procedure or unnecessary downtime. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that uses a unique scalpel-type tool for this highly effective skin care treatment. The process involves gently swiping the blade-like device across the skin to remove unwanted vellus hairs, or peach fuzz, and dead skin cells. It may sound complicated, but it is a simple way to rejuvenate your appearance without any harsh exfoliators. After a few sessions, Boynton Beach, FL patients notice a significant improvement in the texture and tone. However, like any skin care treatment, it should be performed by a trained expert, like our team at Allura MedSpa + Wellness.

What should I do before my dermaplaning session?

If you have booked a dermaplaning treatment, take some time to familiarize yourself with the process beforehand so you know what to expect. It will help you understand how the procedure will work and what steps to take before your appointment.

  • Discontinue use of any exfoliating cleansers or scrubs 3 – 5 days before treatment
  • Avoid direct UV sunlight or exposure for 5 – 7 days before treatment
  • Do not schedule an injectable appointment before or immediately after treatment
  • Schedule any other facial treatments 1 – 2 weeks before service
  • Reschedule your appointment if you have acne lesions or open wounds

How often should you dermaplane your face?

At Allura MedSpa + Wellness, our goal is to help you feel and look your best. We will create a personalized treatment that fits your needs. Our skin experts will determine how often you should dermaplane since this procedure removes 2 – 3 weeks' worth of dead skin. However, you should wait about 3 – 4 weeks in between sessions. You will notice your skin looks brighter almost immediately afterward but will experience some redness for about 2 – 3 days. Patients should also avoid direct sun exposure. Sun damage reverses the effects of dermaplaning so wearing sunscreen protection is highly recommended.

Dermaplaning facial near me, and how Allura MedSpa + Wellness can help

Dermaplaning is an effective exfoliation procedure that can improve the overall texture of facial skin by creating a more uniform, smoother surface. It also can help improve the appearance of common skin concerns (minor acne scars, hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and uneven or dull skin tone) by targeting dead skin cells that act as a barrier on the top layer of our facial skin. Dead skin cell buildup and vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) can prevent skin care products or facial treatments from effectively addressing issues that keep skin looking beautiful and vibrant. Dermaplaning treatments help reveal brighter-looking, smoother skin so you see fewer wrinkles, dark spots, and sun damage.
