At Spectrum Dermatology, we believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and radiant in their own skin. As part of our commitment to providing the latest and most effective skincare treatments, we are thrilled to introduce you to the power of dermaplaning. Here’s a closer look at this this rejuvenating procedure and how it can transform your own skin as a non-invasive aesthetic treatment at our Atlanta clinic.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and non-invasive exfoliation technique that gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (commonly known as “peach fuzz”) from the surface of the skin. This exfoliation process is performed using a specialized surgical blade, skillfully wielded by our expert dermatologists, to reveal a smoother, softer, and more radiant complexion beneath.
The Benefits of Dermaplaning
When getting a dermaplaning treatment with our Atlanta aestheticians, you can expect the following returns on your skin care investment:
- Enhanced Skin Texture: By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning promotes a smoother and more refined skin texture. Say goodbye to rough patches and hello to a velvety soft feel.
- Brighter Complexion: Dermaplaning eliminates the buildup of dull and lifeless skin, allowing the healthier skin underneath to shine through. You’ll notice an instant improvement in skin brightness and a youthful glow.
- Improved Skincare Product Penetration: With the barriers of dead skin cells and vellus hair removed, your skincare products can penetrate more deeply and effectively. This means that your serums and moisturizers can work their magic even better, maximizing their benefits for your skin.
- Safe and Painless: Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime. Our dermatology experts ensure a comfortable and painless experience, making it suitable for most skin types.
- Temporary Hair Removal: While dermaplaning is not intended as a hair removal treatment, the removal of vellus hair can give the appearance of smoother skin. Don’t worry; your hair will not grow back thicker or darker.
The Dermaplaning Procedure
During your dermaplaning session at Spectrum Dermatology of Atlanta, our skilled dermatologists will perform the following steps:
- Cleansing: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, or debris.
- Preparation: A gentle antiseptic solution may be applied to ensure the skin is free from bacteria.
- The Dermaplaning Process: Using a precise and controlled motion, the dermatologist will use a sterile surgical blade to gently exfoliate the skin, removing the dead cells and peach fuzz.
- Soothing Treatment: Following the dermaplaning procedure, a calming and hydrating treatment is applied to soothe the skin.
- Sunscreen Protection: As with any skincare procedure, it’s essential to protect your newly exfoliated skin from the sun. We will apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen to shield your skin from harmful UV rays.
Aftercare and Results
After dermaplaning, you may experience mild redness, similar to a light sunburn, which should subside within a few hours. There is no downtime, and you can return to your daily activities immediately. The results are visible right away, and you will notice an immediate improvement in your skin’s texture and appearance.
Frequency of Treatment
The frequency of dermaplaning treatments depends on individual skin concerns and goals. Many patients opt for a dermaplaning session every 3 to 4 weeks to maintain the smooth and radiant results.
