Make Your Skin Look Radiant With Dermaplaning

If you want smoother, younger-looking skin, dermaplaning can help you achieve both. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute can provide dermaplaning treatments that will help remove your peach fuzz and dead skin cells from your face. While some may think dermaplaning is a fad, this popular facial treatment is here to stay. Learn more about how it works and its benefits and why you should choose dermaplaning for your next treatment.


How Dermaplaning Works

Dermaplaning works by using a surgical dermaplaning blade along the face. The blade is used to scrape off the top layer of skin, like the process of shaving your legs. Peach fuzz will be removed as well as up to three weeks of dead skin cells. While many assume the peach fuzz would grow back thicker and darker, that is not the case. It does grow back but will be the same color and thickness as prior to your treatment.

Any skin type can benefit from dermaplaning but those with rosacea, eczema or psoriasis should avoid the treatment. Also, if you have extra sensitive skin make sure to let your dermatologist know so they can slightly adjust parts of the treatment to avoid skin irritation from occurring. This exfoliation treatment can be done as a standalone treatment or as an add-on to other facial services such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels. If not added on to another treatment, it is recommended to add on a facial to help remoisturize and rejuvenate your skin that was treated.

The painless treatment takes 30 to 60 minutes with little to no downtime. You can expect to go back to your typical activities immediately after the treatment, but it is recommended to be cautious around the sun as your skin will be more susceptible to sunburns if not properly protected. Your skin may show some redness, but it should disappear within 24 hours.


Benefits of Dermaplaning

In addition to removing peach fuzz and dead skin cells, other benefits of dermaplaning include removing light surface wrinkling, smoothing acne scarring, improving skin texture and evening out skin tone. After treatment, you will notice radiant skin that is unbelievably smooth. One of the greatest benefits is the way your makeup will go on after treatment and how it will look. Since your skin’s surface is so smooth, makeup will go on easier, smoother, and soak into the skin now that your pores are unclogged.

Results of one dermaplaning treatment last two to three months. For continuous results you will need to continue treatments every few months. You can expect to spend $100 to $250 per dermaplaning treatment but it is a treatment worth investing in. Treatments can be stopped and started again at any time as long as there has been two weeks in between treatments.

If you want to try dermaplaning as a standalone treatment or as an add-on to another treatment and are in Bloomington, Illinois or the surrounding areas, complete this form. The dermatologists at Dermatology & Mohs Surgery Institute look forward to providing you dermaplaning services so you have smooth, radiant skin to show off.
