One of the longest-lasting treatments in the cosmetic industry is dermaplaning. The treatment removes dead cells from the outer layer of skin to reveal a younger, glowing complexion. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lars Enevoldsen of Skinfinite Solutions Medical Spa and Laser Center, offers dermaplaning for men and women in Modesto, Stockton and surrounding areas of California.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a noninvasive, painless and quick procedure in which dead skin cells are manually scraped away from the surface. It increases cellular turnover, and smooths and softens skin, providing immediate results.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is not a new procedure to the cosmetic industry. It has been used with medical skin care for the past two decades. This is one of the most effective procedures for exfoliation as it tricks the body into thinking it has an injury and needs to heal itself, immediately producing healthier, plump skin cells.
Dermaplaning is a treatment that can be performed safely on all skin colors. It is a great technique to treat raised scars, wrinkles, crow’s feet, splotchy pigmentation, sun damage, and age spots. Dermaplaning is most popular on the face, but could also be used on your hands, chest or back. It is a relatively quick procedure requiring no recovery time.
As an extra bonus, dermaplaning removes the fine vellus hair on the face. This, of course, will leave your skin smooth as silk. Dermaplaning will not cause the vellus hair on your face to grow back any darker, thicker or faster because the procedure does not trigger hair follicles. The hair will return just as it was, usually in about two to four weeks.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Removing an outer layer of skin and dead cells via dermaplaning reveals the younger skin underneath. The procedure also removes the fine hair on the face, which can give the skin a smooth, soft texture.
What to Expect from Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is performed after the skin is cleansed and toned. Our nurse practitioner or physician assistant will gently scrape away the surface layer of dirt, oil and dead skin cells with a sterile dermaplaning blade. Each area of the face, except for the nose and neck, is carefully scraped until properly “cleaned”. After the procedure, special products chosen by your esthetician for your unique skin type and concerns, as well as sun protection, will be applied with a gentle facial massage. You will leave the office free to reapply makeup at any time.
