Dermaplaning Q & A

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning takes the benefits of exfoliation to the next level. Rather than exfoliating your skin with a scrub, your Southwest Michigan Dermatology provider moves a specialized blade over your skin's surface. This delivers two immediate benefits: it removes the dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and shaves away any peach fuzz. The result is completely smooth and hairless skin. 

The removed dead cells and fine hairs make your skin look and feel more even. 

But those aren’t the only benefits of dermaplaning. This treatment is also effective at minimizing the appearance of skin imperfections. 

What kind of skin imperfections can dermaplaning treat?

The team uses dermaplaning to encourage cell turnover and break up scar tissue on the surface of your skin. This helps to reduce the visibility of:

  • Acne scars
  • Sun damage
  • Surgical scars
  • Fine lines
  • Injury scars

What’s more, your provider can combine your dermaplaning treatment with a chemical peel or mask. Applying these topical treatments to your skin when the outermost cells have been removed by dermaplaning allows them to penetrate deeply, giving you the best results. 

What is the dermaplaning process like?

Dermaplaning is a pain-free process. Your Southwest Michigan Dermatology specialist strives to make the entire treatment period relaxing for you, and they let you know what to expect during the session. 

Your treatment time varies depending on whether you have dermaplaning alone or you choose to add a chemical peel or mask. Repeat dermaplaning treatments can give you more radiant skin, and you only need to wait a few weeks between each treatment. 

What’s more, there’s absolutely no downtime with this treatment. Whether you get dermaplaning as a standalone treatment or combined with a mask or peel, you leave your appointment glowing. 

If you do choose to combine dermaplaning with a peel, you can expect some peeling over the coming week or weeks. Your Southwest Michigan Dermatology provider will let you know what to expect.
