Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation of the skin- treating the hair and dead skin cells to reveal a refreshed glow. Skin care products will go on more smoothly and be absorbed more readily.
The treatment uses a handheld device known as a dermatome is moved gently over the treatment area to exfoliate the skin and slough the damaged, outer layers. Although the procedure is non-invasive, the device exerts more pressure than the one used in microdermabrasion. Treatment generally lasts no more than an hour, although sometimes multiple sessions are necessary to achieve optimal results.
The benefits include the reduction of fine lines, facial hair and a refreshed appearance. Patients enjoy improved skin tone and texture and the confidence that comes with having a smooth complexion. Full results are immediate.
Typically there is little-if-any recovery period needed after the treatment. Your skin may feel a bit sensitive after treatment but other than that side effects are rare and may include swelling, and redness.
