What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

-Dermaplaning-Gallaher-Plastic-Surgery-Spa-MD-Powell-TNDo you suffer from acne scars?  Are you sick of dealing with rough and bumpy facial skin that doesn’t seem to respond to any treatments?  Have you tried microdermabrasions, but have been let down by the final result?

If you find yourself nodding along to the above questions, then it’s time to discover dermaplaning, a new technique designed to remove dead skin cells, revealing youthful, blemish-free skin. 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning (also known as facial shaving) is a non-invasive procedure that is performed by one of our licensed aestheticians. During the treatment, the aesthetician uses a tool to “shave” away the top layer of the skin, thus revealing the younger-looking skin that’s been hiding beneath dead skin cells.  This highly effective exfoliation technique is usually performed in less than thirty minutes, with most clients requiring a monthly visit to maintain results.  This treatment can be added on to a facial or a peel to enhance exfoliation.

Dermaplaning should only be used on the face to treat the following problems:

·         Excess facial hair

·         Rough, uneven skin texture

·         Acne scars

·         Dull skin

·         Wrinkles

Dermaplaning is also a popular choice for mature clients, who may not see rapid cellular turnover.  This procedure can help facilitate faster turnover, leading to a youthful, age-defying glow.

Why Clients Love Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a popular physical exfoliation technique that can pinpoint skin problems more precisely than with a general microdermabrasion or chemical peel.  Clients often report experiencing better results than what’s achieved with microdermabrasions; what’s more, there’s little to no downtime, as the skin only gets mildly puffy and red after the treatment.

Dermaplaning is often used as a simple approach to comprehensive complexion problems.  If you suffer from excessive facial hair, wrinkles, and dull skin, dermaplaning can target all of these problems in an easy and convenient procedure.
