What is Dermaplaning?
If you’re looking for the smoothest possible skin, consider a dermaplaning treatment at Derrington Dermatology in Charleston.
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that gently removes the top layers of your skin, dead skin cells, and peach fuzz or vellus hairs using a small blade” The procedure removes fine wrinkles making the skin’s surface look smooth. It is safe gentle and pain-free.
Dermaplaning provides a quick and safe exfoliation treatment that promotes deeper product penetration, boosting the effects of skincare products. The entire process typically lasts between 15 and 30 minutes. Since there are no incisions or other invasive steps required, there is no downtime and the results are immediate.
What Can Complement a Dermaplaning Session?
While dermaplaning is compatible with a range of treatments, it excellent with injectables, such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers, that address wrinkles, creases, and volume loss. Derrington Dermatology also routinely pairs it with mild chemical peels.
When used together, these treatments can revitalize the entire face. Another complementary treatment to dermaplaning is microneedling. Microneedling creates numerous micro-channels in the skin. Each of these channels encourages healing in the surrounding tissue, prompting the whole face to be smoother, tighter, and revitalized.
Dermaplaning has the best results if repeated every three to four weeks. Derrington Dermatology can help you figure out a schedule. Each time you get dermaplaned, you’re removing about two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells.
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning. Infection and scarring are rare.
Dermaplaning eliminates fine wrinkles. While it won’t do much for those deeper wrinkles, it can eliminate the fine wrinkles that begin to develop over time. The wrinkle is actually removed (yes, removed!) from the skin, creating the appearance of a smooth complexion. The results can last up to 6 months.
