What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that involves using a special tool to gently scrape off the top layer of skin on the face. The procedure is typically performed by trained skincare professionals at Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness, and is usually done to exfoliate the skin, remove dead skin cells, and improve the appearance of the skin. Consistent dermaplaning treatments can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can make the skin look smoother and more radiant. It is important to use good skin care in between appointments and use proper aftercare to ensure the skin heals properly.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has several benefits, including:

  1. Exfoliation: Dermaplaning removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing smoother, brighter skin.
  2. Smooths skin texture: Dermaplaning helps to smooth out rough or uneven skin texture, making it look and feel smoother.
  3. Improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: Dermaplaning helps to smooth out the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by removing the top layer of dead skin cells.
  4. Increases absorption of skincare products: Dermaplaning helps to remove the top layer of dead skin cells, which can block the absorption of skincare products. After dermaplaning, skincare products are able to penetrate deeper into the skin, providing better results.
  5. Reduces the appearance of acne scars: Dermaplaning helps to smooth out the appearance of acne scars by removing the top layer of dead skin cells.
  6. Safe for all skin types: Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
  7. Quick and non-invasive: Dermaplaning is a quick, non-invasive procedure that can be done in as little as 30 minutes. There is no downtime required after the treatment.

How often should you have a dermaplaning treatment?

For ideal results patients should visit Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness for dermaplaning sessions once per month. Naturally the body replaces its skin cells and this ensures that the dead skin is removed.

Dermaplaning After Care

After the treatment, it is important to follow proper aftercare to ensure the best results and minimize the risk of complications. Here are some tips for dermaplaning aftercare:

  1. Avoid sun exposure: Avoid exposing your skin to the sun for at least 24 hours after the treatment. If you need to go outside, make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher.
  2. Avoid sweating: Avoid activities that cause heavy sweating for at least 24 hours after the treatment. This includes exercise and hot baths or showers.
  3. Avoid skincare products: Avoid using any skincare products (such as exfoliants, retinoids, or alpha-hydroxy acids) for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
  4. Avoid makeup: Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the treatment.
  5. Avoid touching your face: Avoid touching your face or picking at any scabs or flakes that may form after the treatment.
  6. Moisturize: Use a gentle, non-comedogenic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated after the treatment.

It is important to note that you may experience some redness and sensitivity after the treatment. This is normal and should resolve within a few hours. If you experience any unusual symptoms or have any concerns, contact Revolution Aesthetics & Wellness.
