Derma-Planing is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth.
Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
• Acne scars
• Dull skin
• Dry skin
• Sun-damaged skin
• Fine wrinkles
The patient is made to lie down comfortably on a treatment couch. The face is cleaned with saline water and a numbing cream may be applied.
The doctor will use a manual derma-planing tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as your provider gently works to exfoliate the skin.
After the treatment is finished, your doctor or therapist will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face.
You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a derma-planing treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days following.
Q.What are the benefits of derma planing?
A. You’ll immediately look more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before.
Q. Who is dermaplaning for?
A. Derma-planing is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may already look very pink, so be sure to wear a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyper-pigmentation.
