Dermaplaning is a treatment that has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. Since the treatment removes dead skin cells, skincare products will be able to better penetrate the skin when applied, making them more effective.
You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience some slight redness that typically resolves within a few days.
It is advised to take extra precautions with sun exposure after a dermaplaning treatment. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning, or lead to the formation of pigment on your newly exposed skin cells. It is important to wear sunscreen the weeks following your dermaplaning treatment.
Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation. A surgical, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis.
Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair on the face, leaving a very smooth surface. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones and minor breakouts associated with congested pores.
