What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin cells and fine hairs to create softer skin and improve skin tone. This treatment can be an ideal option for patients who would like to achieve the benefits of exfoliation without the downtime or side effects associated with other techniques. Dermaplaning is effective for all skin types, but it may not be recommended for patients with acne or facial hair.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
The cost of your dermaplaning treatment will depend on a variety of factors, including the extent of treatment needed to produce your desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Austin will assess your treatment goals in order to develop a personalized treatment plan. At this point, we will be able to provide you with the full cost of treatment. For your convenience, we accept many forms of payment and also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit® and Prosper® Healthcare Lending.
What is the Dermaplaning Treatment Like?
During the dermaplaning treatment, a scalpel is used to carefully scrape off dead skin and fine hairs from the skin. Many patients compare this to the feeling of shaving, and find it quite tolerable. The dermaplaning treatment takes between 30 and 45 minutes, as the full surface of the face has to be treated.
Is There Any Downtime After Dermaplaning?
There is no downtime after dermaplaning, and you will be able to return to work and other activities immediately after your appointment. Your skin may be slightly pink or sensitive after treatment, but this is common and the skin typically returns to normal within a day or two.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?
The results from dermaplaning will be visible immediately. The dermaplaning treatment removes about three weeks worth of dead skin cells during a single session. Therefore, the results from dermaplaning will last about one month before dead skin cells and peach fuzz fully re-accumulate. Patients typically receive monthly treatment sessions to maintain their results.
