Make Your Makeup Look Even Better with Dermaplaning

Yes, there is a way to get flawless makeup! You can finally have your makeup look even smoother. All you need is one hour every two months to devote to dermaplaning, the savior you have been looking for. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute are sharing all the reasons that dermaplaning is a must for your next facial.


How Dermaplaning Works

Dermaplaning is a type of cosmetic facial. It can be done as a standalone facial or added onto another facial for an enhanced benefit. Either option will provide you with the same, amazing results. Not much preparation is needed prior to treatment other than avoiding the sun a few days before.

A dermaplaning treatment consists of a dermatologist removing the top layers of your skin. The treatment is safe for all skin types and effective for nearly everyone. First, a dermatologist will remove any makeup or lotion on the face to ensure they are working with a clean slate. Next, the dermatologist will perform extractions on any whiteheads or blackheads. This will help prep your skin for the dermaplaning portion of the facial.

As dermaplaning begins, a razor-like instrument is used to gently scrape away skin impurities such as the dead top layers of skin and peach fuzz. This helps to exfoliate your skin. It may sound scary, but it is barely felt as it is done, is not painful and is similar to the process of shaving. Once complete, the dermatologist will soothe your skin with aloe or another topical cream to aid in the healing process. From start to finish, the appointment should take one to two hours. Although there is no downtime or side effects, your skin may experience some redness for 24 hours. Also, be sure to avoid the sun for a few days after treatment.


Dermaplaning Results

After your appointment, your skin will be noticeably more smooth, dead skin will have been removed, peach fuzz will have disappeared, wrinkles will be less refined, and acne scars will look more faint. Applying makeup to your new, radiant skin will feel like a dream come true. You will find that your foundation, moisturizer, and toner will go on easier and will seep into your skin better than ever. Applying eyeliner and eyeshadow will be a breeze and will allow you to create cleaner lines and will look smoother. When you are not wearing makeup, your skin will look youthful, radiant and glowing, and will feel soft to the touch.

The results of dermaplaning last four to six weeks. To continue seeing results and having smooth skin, treatments will need to be continued. Since dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment, it is not covered by insurance and will cost $100 to $200 per treatment. It may seem like a high cost, but you cannot put a price on good skincare.
