What is a dermaplaning facial? A dermaplane facial provides hair removal and exfoliation by utilizing a 10 gauge surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the dull top layer of dead skin cells and fine facial hair to reveal a bright, smooth complexion. Patients in the Dallas, Plano and Frisco, Texas area should feel comfortable undergoing this treatment at Medical Aesthetics of North Dallas. Our team members have received high levels of training to protect our patients.
What is a Dermaplaning Facial?
A dermaplane facial has become the hottest skincare treatment for celebrities. The treatment provides hair removal and exfoliation by using a scalpel and light feathering strokes, leading to a decrease in dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” that cakes up makeup and causes a dull complexion. Without very fine facial hair and dead skin cells, the skin has a youthful, smooth appearance.
A dermaplane facial is a quick procedure that has few to no adverse effects. This treatment option is ideal for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep skin exfoliation. Chemical peels and other treatments are often not recommended for pregnant and nursing women because of the potential risk of chemicals being absorbed into the bloodstream.
What are the Benefits of a Dermaplane Facial?
After a dermaplane facial, patients will experience the cleanest, smoothest complexion in their life. Dermaplaning is used for a number of aesthetic reasons, not just hair removal and exfoliation. Benefits of dermaplaning include:
- Evening out skin tone
- Eliminating fine wrinkles
- Eliminating acne scars
- Removing facial hair
- Long lasting results
- Few to no risks
A Dermaplane Facial can enhance other Hair Removal and Exfoliation Treatments
A dermaplane facial can be used alone or with other skin treatments to enhance hair removal and exfoliation, such as chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning allows the other skincare treatments to penetrate deeper into the skin.
Dermaplaning is typically performed every 3-4 weeks in short 30 minute sessions. A full 21-30 day skin rejuvenation must take place before the treatment can be performed again.
A dermaplane facial is safe for all skin types except those with acne breakouts. If a patient has deep cystic acne, they are encouraged to wait until after the breakout clears to undergo the hair removal and exfoliation treatment.
