Men and women alike are bothered by the appearance of dry, dull, or uneven skin. They may also be plagued by fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, hyperpigmentation, facial hair, and other imperfections. Fortunately, dermaplaning exists. This treatment removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz, resulting in more glowing, smooth skin! Removing this top layer of skin and hair allows skin care products to penetrate more effectively and leaves you looking more radiant overall.
At Lux: A Medical Spa in Bluffton, SC and Hilton Head, SC, dermaplaning is one of our most popular aesthetic services, and for good reason. To find out if this treatment can work for you, contact us today and schedule a consultation!
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an aesthetic service often considered a “medical-grade shave.” Ideal for both men and women, this treatment is performed with a surgical-grade scalpel held at a precise 45° angle by a licensed professional.
This chemical-free manual exfoliation technique is perfect for any skin type, tone, or texture. Many people request this treatment to remove the pesky patches of peach fuzz (vellus) facial hairs, leaving the skin smooth, youthful, and radiant. However, there are many other benefits to this treatment. For instance, makeup applied after treatment should go on as smooth as silk, making your skin look even better.
What Can It Treat?
Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and can help anyone with:
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
- Dry skin
- Sun-damaged skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin
What to Expect
Dermaplaning treatments are performed in the comfort of our office. Before treatment, your skin will be sanitized and prepared. The treatment itself is not said to be uncomfortable at all.
After treatment, makeup can be applied like a dream. With the absence of vellus hair, your skin may glow as if you have received the most indulgent facial imaginable. If you don’t wear makeup, you can still revel in the incredible benefits of this treatment. The sheer, smooth radiance of your skin after treatment could pleasantly surprise you.
Even better, any treatment you use after dermaplaning will be significantly more effective. Whether you use a moisturizer, acne medication, an anti-aging treatment, or something else, the process should enhance its effects.
How Many Sessions Are Needed?
It’s important to note that results vary from patient to patient, and a series of treatment sessions over time may be required for optimal results. To maintain your ideal aesthetic, you may need to receive treatment every three to six weeks. This is because, even if you take care of your skin, you can’t cleanse and exfoliate all the impurities from the top layer of your skin at home. Skin cells die. Pollutants, irritants, and bacteria make their home on top of the dead skin cells, and the skin once again begins to look dull. Vellus hairs grow back, too, although they do not grow back darker, thicker, or faster.
