Ever wonder how models and entertainers keep their skin looking flawless. Many of them receive dermaplaning or dermabrasion treatments. Dermaplaning is popular with entertainers because it reduces peach fuzz and other surface imperfections on the skin that may be more visible under intense production lighting and TV cameras.

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment performed using a scalpel to gently reduce the skin’s outer layer, along with impurities, surface imperfections, and dead skin cells, revealing a fresh, smooth, radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is commonly used to treat deep acne scars as well as other imperfections in the skin’s texture and color.

By scraping away the skin’s thick outer layer, the treatment also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. Cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures, such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types but is not recommended for people who have active acne. Dermaplaning is popular among pregnant and nursing women who want exfoliation treatments without exposure to harsh chemicals. If you suffer from chronic cystic acne, we recommend that you wait until you skin clears up before undergoing dermaplaning. Our skin care specialists will evaluate your condition to help you determine whether dermaplaning may be right for you.

WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?

Dermaplaning is not painful and most clients compare the sensation to shaving. Our specialist will carefully and thoroughly cleanse and dry your skin. The procedure is performed by pulling an area of the skin taut with one hand, and while using a scalpel, to gently and precisely scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Treatment takes only about 30 minutes and you will be free to resume normal activities immediately after the procedure.

ARE THERE ANY RISKS?

There are no side effects or downtime with dermaplaning; however, your skin will be extremely sensitive to UV rays and may look and feel similar to a mild sunburn, so it is essential that you protect this delicate new skin by using a top-quality sunscreen to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation or sun damage after treatment.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER A DERMAPLANING TREATMENT?

You will notice that your skin looks immediately more radiant and luminous. Your skin tone will look more even as well, and your skin’s texture will be delightfully smooth and silky. Without peach fuzz, your skin will feel and look smoother than it’s ever felt before.

Discover a new radiance and luminosity in your skin after a dermaplaning or dermabrasion treatment at New Visage. If you live in the Jacksonville, NC, area, and want to find out if this skin rejuvenation treatment is right choice you, contact our office in Morehead City at 252-419-3181.
