Daily activities, sun exposure, other external factors, and aging can make our facial skin look dull and old. Dermaplaning is a reliable yet inexpensive way to attain a smooth, even-toned, balanced-textured, and youthful skin. With Dermaplaning, you don’t have to go through an invasive, ablative, or surgical procedure to attain smooth and young-looking skin. Dermaplaning is a good way to keep your skin smooth.
But, what is Dermaplaning? How is the procedure done? Will you need a lot of time to recover? Is it safe? How effective is Dermaplaning? Take it easy. We’ll answer all your questions with no further ado.
Dermaplaning is a non-surgical and non-invasive treatment that targets the following:
- fine wrinkles
- dead skin cells
- uneven texture due to external factors
- uneven skin tone due to sun damage
- And mild to deep acne scars
Dermaplaning removes the topmost layer part of the skin. By doing so, the dead skin cells are then removed. But Dermaplaning is not limited to that. The regeneration of the outer part of the epidermis encourages your skin to surface a formerly deeper layer of the epidermis. Thus the renewal of your skin.
Dermaplaning uses a razor-like hand-held device to exfoliates the outer layer of the skin. It is also commonly known as “exfoliator, magic wand, and beauty wand.”
Will you need a lot of time to recover?
Unlike other treatments that require a more invasive procedure, you will experience fewer side effects. Dermaplaning is considered a low-risk treatment. Additionally, you will also need less to no time to recover. Most patients return to their daily activities right after the procedure. The common side effects are slight redness, and that’s mostly it. However, in very rare cases, infection and scarring can occur.
Rare cases are often affiliated with not disclosing the medical conditions of the candidate to the performing personnel. In other cases, rare cases are due to novice and improper use of the treatment. It is best to know what must be avoided before and after the procedure to avoid the side effects. Let’s start with post-procedure care.
Avoid excessive and direct sunlight.
When taken lightly or neglected, this is the most common factor that could reverse the effect of Dermaplaning. Too much sun exposure encourages your skin to create blotches and patches in them. If going outside is unavoidable, it is best to use a wide-brimmed hat, sunglasses, umbrella and apply sunscreen with at least 40 SPF.
Use a topical cream which your doctor most likely advises
Your doctor will most likely prescribe an antibiotic cream to improve regeneration and prevent skin infection.
Avoid activities that lead to excessive sweating.
Your face and hair could catch dirt and bacteria through the air or other surfaces. Sweating could drip the dirt and bacteria down to the treated area. Thus, a higher risk of infection. Additionally, sweat by itself could harm your skin, and wiping it off means more contact with external things such as your towel.
Avoid activities that would expose your skin to harmful matters such as smoke, dirt, germs, and bacterias.
Avoid touching, rubbing, or scratching the treated area.
Now, let’s talk about pre-procedure care.
- Any medical conditions should be discussed with your doctor before undergoing treatment. You will then be advised whether you are a valid candidate for Dermaplaning.
- In case you have acne breakouts, the doctor will most likely discourage you from going through the procedure. Dermaplaning while having acne breakouts can aggregate the condition and reverse or worsen the results.
How much is a session of Dermaplaning, and how often should you get it?
On average, treatment ranges between $200 to $250. Dermaplaning is not a permanent solution for fine wrinkles, dead skin cells, scars, and other skin skin-aging indicators. Frankly speaking, a one-time permanent skin smoothening procedure is yet to be discovered. Treatments like Dermaplaning could diminish and prevent them; however, results are temporary. The effect lasts between 3-5 weeks. This depends on your skincare, exposure to external factors, and aging.
Nonetheless, Dermaplaning is still a reliably cost-efficient treatment for smoothening your skin. Other treatments focus more on diminishing the wrinkles and fine lines, such as skin resurfacing, Botox, fillers, and more. On the other hand, Dermaplaning tackles the overall cleanliness of the skin while treating fine wrinkles and deep scars. Thus, making your skin visibly smoother and young-looking right after the procedure and until the effects fade.
How can I get the most out of Dermaplaning?
The hand-held Dermaplaning razor can be bought and used by any individual. Administering the procedure by yourself could cut you off big savings, but it could result in unsatisfactory results. To get the most out of Dermaplaning, it is best to let a board-certified professional do the work for you. In addition to satisfyingly smooth, young-looking skin, your doctor can prescribe aftercare creams that would benefit your skin.
Optimal aftercare could also contribute to a longer-lasting effect of Dermaplaning. You can refer to the previous subtopic, “Will you need a lot of time to recover?” mentioned earlier in case you skipped the part.
Dermaplaning is indeed a safe and effective treatment to immediately smoothen your skin. Aside from that, Dermaplaning is inexpensive compared to other treatments, making Dermaplaning an accessible option for you.
You can imagine Dermaplaning as your go-to treatment for special occasions and the like. Think of it this way – you are about to get married, and a wedding by itself is quite expensive, and we all know that. Instead of going for an expensive, year-lasting yet expensive treatment, Dermaplaning is figuratively and literally right out of the box. Additionally, you do not have to worry about any risks at all. Your skin will look fairer, smoother, and youthful in less than a 30-minute session. What more could you ask for?
