What is dermaplaning like to experience?

During this treatment, your skin is first cleansed, and then, the dermaplaning tool will be used to skim the surface of your skin, removing dead surface cells and peach fuzz. During this time, your skin is gently exfoliated. When your treatment is completed, a special healing gel will be applied to your skin, to protect the fresh skin cells.

As new skin cells are now on the surface, your skin may be slightly reddened, but this typically fades quickly. After dermaplaning, the facial skin may feel sensitive for a short time. You could choose to have an additional treatment, as your facial skin can now more easily absorb skin-restoring serums. Your skin will be ultra-smooth, allowing makeup to glide on easily.

Dermaplaning FAQ

How often should I have repeat treatments?

The frequency with which you should get dermaplaning done totally depends on the rate of your skin cell turnover. That said, it is recommended that most people have it done once a month for the best results. If you have sensitive skin, you may want to wait at least six weeks before having another treatment. However, Dr. Poulos will be able to give you a more precise timetable.

Can dermaplaning be combined with other treatments?

Dermaplaning can be combined with other skincare treatments. When you discuss your goals with Dr. Poulos, she can make a recommendation on other treatments you can combine for the best results.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Dermaplaning scrapes the surface of your skin, which may sound painful, but there is little to no discomfort, and feels as if your skin is being lightly scratched. The treatment is very effective for those who want smooth, hair-free, glowing skin.
