How Often Can You Do Dermaplaning?

If you want to improve your skin and are looking for a simple, non-invasive, and effective skincare treatment to transform your complexion, dermaplaning is the perfect option. This treatment is designed to exfoliate the skin and give it an immediate glow that radiates vibrancy and youth. At Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX, we offer this effective exfoliating treatment that will improve your skin texture, increase cellular turnover, and help you achieve luminous, glowing skin.

How Often Can You Schedule Dermaplaning Treatments?

Dermaplaning is the perfect treatment for those who want to wake up their complexion or want to improve their skin before a special event because post-treatment, it results in a natural, dewy, healthy glow that even your favorite highlighter can’t beat. Unlike many treatments that require several weeks to months between treatments, you can make this treatment a part of your monthly skincare routine.

The Importance of Regular Exfoliation

Healthy skin requires regular exfoliation. Exfoliation isn’t a one-and-done treatment because your skin naturally creates new skin cells every month, so in order to maintain a healthy glow, you need to remove the dead skin cell layer that’s hiding those new, younger cells.

Sometimes exfoliating face washes and scrubs aren’t enough; your skin needs something more. Scheduling a physical exfoliation treatment like dermaplaning is the perfect way to exfoliate your skin, speed its cellular turnover rate, and promote skin health from one month to the next.

Designing the Right Treatment Plan

Everyone’s skin is different, so if you’re interested in experiencing this skincare treatment and making it a regular part of your anti-aging skincare routine, you must first schedule a consultation.

Our experts will design an effective treatment plan custom-tailored to your skin type to help you achieve your skincare goals. An initial pre-treatment consultation is the best way to determine how often you should schedule your treatments to give your skin the regular exfoliation it needs to stay as healthy and youthful as possible.

What Are the Benefits?

It Gently Exfoliates the Skin

Your skin needs exfoliation, but not everyone’s skin tolerates the same level of exfoliation. This treatment gently exfoliates the skin. It’s gentle enough for those with sensitive skin, but it’s also aggressive enough that it removes all the dead skin cells without irritating.

If your skin currently feels dull and lifeless and lacks a healthy glow, you may not need to schedule invasive treatments or procedures. Instead, you may just need to schedule a dermaplaning treatment to gently yet effectively exfoliate your skin.

It’s a Simple Treatment

If you’re not ready to commit to an invasive skincare treatment, you will love dermaplaning. The treatment process involves the use of one single tool, a medical-grade sterile scalpel.

During the treatment process, your esthetician will hold the scalpel at a precise 45° angle to carefully remove the top layer of dead skin cells without cutting or injuring the skin. The treatment doesn’t require any harsh chemicals or invasive techniques to improve the skin, just a single tool that delivers physical exfoliation.

It’s a Monthly Treatment

You don’t have to schedule an invasive treatment to improve your skin, and sometimes the simplest treatments are the ones that deliver some of the most dramatic results. This anti-aging, skin-perfecting exfoliating treatment is the perfect addition to implement into your monthly skincare routine to help you achieve and maintain beautiful skin that you can enjoy long term.

It’s a Gentle and Effective Form of Skin Resurfacing

There are many different treatments that resurface the skin, but some of those treatments are often harsh and require significant downtime. If you don’t have time for downtime, you’ll love dermaplaning. It’s both gentle and effective and requires little to no downtime yet removes the dead skin cell barrier without causing inflammation, irritation, or redness.

It Removes Fine Hair From the Skin’s Surface

If you look closely in a magnifying mirror, you’ll see fine hair all over the surface of your skin. You may have noticed how this fine hair interferes with your makeup application techniques, but it can also promote bacteria and dirt on the skin’s surface, which results in breakouts.

This treatment not only exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells but also removes the fine hair all over the surface of the skin. As a result, you will achieve smooth, hair-free, glowing skin, and your makeup will apply flawlessly.

It Helps Promote Clear Skin

When you don’t regularly exfoliate your skin, your skin may become more prone to breakouts. Dirt, debris, and dead skin cells all build up in the pores and can result in blackheads, whiteheads, and acne blemishes. Adding this treatment to your monthly skincare routine will promote clear skin by helping you maintain clear and healthy pores and consistently remove the build-up from your skin so that you no longer experience regular breakouts.

It’s a Quick Treatment

When you schedule your dermaplaning sessions, you won’t have to rearrange your entire schedule to attend your treatments. The treatment process is quick and is often used as an add-on treatment to other facial treatments like chemical peels and facials. Your esthetician will recommend the best way to schedule your sessions, either as stand-alone treatments or in conjunction with other skin care treatments based on the needs of your skin and your ultimate skin goals.

How Does It Work?

Your esthetician may apply a topical numbing cream or anesthetic to your planned treatment area as needed to begin the treatment process. Then, she will cleanse the skin to prepare it for the treatment and then take the scalpel and gently scrape the skin to remove the dead skin cell barrier and fine hair from the top layer.

Depending on the level of exfoliation your skin requires, your esthetician may scrape the treatment area several times to effectively remove the dead skin cells.

Is There Downtime?

As soon as your treatment is over, you can resume your normal daily activities. If you do experience any scabbing post-treatment, it’s important that you leave the scabs alone and let your skin heal naturally. We recommend that patients avoid sun exposure after their treatment to protect their skin. Your esthetician will provide you with aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and recommend skincare products to add to your routine to enhance your results.

When Will I See Results?

Your skin will look and feel softer and smoother as soon as the treatment is complete and will continue to improve in the days following your treatment. When your skin begins to look dull and your glow begins to fade, you’ll know it’s time for another treatment to help maintain glowing and radiant skin. We typically advise patients to schedule treatments monthly to achieve the best results.

Am I a Candidate?

The best candidates for this treatment are patients who want to improve their complexions but aren’t ready for a more invasive form of exfoliation like microdermabrasion or a chemical peel. This treatment is a good option for patients who struggle with rosacea or want to treat skin imperfections like uneven skin tone and texture or superficial hyperpigmentation.

Additionally, patients with sensitive skin can safely schedule this treatment because it is gentle and won’t irritate their skin like many other forms of chemical and physical exfoliation. Those who want to exfoliate their skin and remove fine hair make good patients for this treatment as well. All different skin types and tones qualify for dermaplaning, but as always, a pre-treatment consultation is the best way to confirm that this treatment is right for you.

When To Avoid Treatment

Patients with active acne or severe acne are discouraged from undergoing this treatment because exfoliation treatments and active acne don’t go hand in hand. Exfoliating skin with active acne can spread bacteria to other areas of the face, worsening the complexion.

If you have active acne and are interested in an exfoliating treatment to improve your skin, our experts can evaluate your complexion in person and then design a treatment plan that helps improve your skin so that you can experience a clear and glowing complexion.
