What Is Dermaplaning Good for?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that can make your skin look more radiant, smooth, and glowing. More than just shaving your face, this skin resurfacing treatment is also good for improving your skin texture and minimizing the signs of aging. At Novo Med Spa in Frisco, TX, we perform this treatment to address multiple skin issues and enhance your skin’s overall appearance.

What Is Dermaplaning Good For?

Dermaplaning, a treatment that involves shaving your facial hair and exfoliating the topmost layer of your skin, is good for making your skin look smoother, boosting collagen production, and reducing your blemishes. It’s no wonder that this treatment has become extremely popular in recent years.

Boosting Collagen Production

The natural aging process causes our skin’s natural collagen production to slow down. Because of this, our skin tends to look less vibrant, youthful, and hydrated. If you are feeling less confident because of the dull appearance of your skin, you can rejuvenate your appearance with our skin resurfacing treatments.

Dermaplaning places gentle pressure on the surface of your skin, which can boost blood circulation and stimulate collagen production. Collagen is the most essential protein for maintaining the healthy and youthful look of your skin. Without collagen, skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles develop. Therefore, if you wish to improve the appearance of dry, aging skin and achieve a more supple, firm, hydrated look, you’ll benefit from our skin treatments that boost natural collagen production.

Removing Dead Skin Cells

As we age, our body’s natural regeneration processes tend to slow down. But with our non-invasive skin treatments, it’s now easy to get rid of dead skin cells on the topmost layer of your skin. This process reveals younger, fresher, brighter skin underneath. If you have mild wrinkles and fine lines, they will be visibly minimized, too.

Better Application of Products

Would you like to make your skin care regimen more effective? Regular exfoliation makes it easier for your serums and other skincare products to penetrate your skin. If you love using Vitamin C serums and hyaluronic acid-based products, right after exfoliation is the perfect time to apply these products for the best results.

Dermaplaning also makes a wonderful primer for any type of makeup. Each treatment leaves your skin smooth, allowing your makeup to look spotless. So if you’re planning to attend a special event such as a wedding, getting a skin resurfacing treatment is a good preparation to make your makeup look its best. Your makeup will stay on for longer when there are no fine hairs and dead cells on your skin.

Improvement of Skin Health

Do you have an uneven skin tone? Aging and daily exposure to pollutants can cause your skin to look dull, tired, and dehydrated. When you have a dull skin complexion, your skincare products may not work as intended.

Skin resurfacing treatments can remove dead skin cells and brighten your complexion. By triggering skin cell regeneration, it can also minimize superficial problems such as rosacea and hyperpigmentation. If you want to rejuvenate your skin for a more healthy-looking appearance, our exfoliating treatments can give you satisfying results.

Minimizing Acne Breakouts

Those with naturally oily skin tend to experience more acne breakouts. If you find it difficult to manage acne and keep your skin looking smooth and healthy, dermaplaning can help. One way to prevent acne breakouts is to keep your pores clean and unclogged. By getting regular skin-smoothing treatments, you can prevent the accumulation of excess sebum and prevent acne breakouts.

How the Treatment Works

Our exfoliating treatment revitalizes your skin by getting rid of old skin cells and fine facial hairs known as peach fuzz. If you are looking for an alternative to chemical peels or costly laser treatments, dermaplaning treatments may be a good alternative for you. It offers results that can’t simply be achieved with the use of topical skincare products.

What’s the Treatment Process?

Dermaplaning treatments are made possible with the use of a surgical steel blade. We use this tool to gently and lightly exfoliate the topmost layer of your skin. During your treatment, we will gently brush the blade along your skin, effectively removing facial hair and dead skin cells. There’s no need for local anesthesia to perform this treatment.

When Will You See the Results?

After getting the treatment, you can expect to notice a visibly brighter, more radiant appearance. The significant reduction in dead skin cells and facial hair will visibly improve your appearance. Because the uppermost layer of our skin is frequently exposed to pollutants and toxins, we tend to have a dull facial appearance. However, after this unhealthy topmost layer has been removed, you’ll see the appearance of a more youthful, revitalized, fresher layer underneath.

Is There Downtime?

Our skin-smoothing treatment is safe for most skin types and does not involve any invasive or harsh processes. Within a day or two after getting the treatment, any inflammatory response should subside. You may notice a slight, temporary exfoliation, or shedding for a few days up to a week after getting the treatment. Still, there is no downtime, pain, or significant discomfort to worry about.

How Long Does the Treatment Take?

There’s no need to block your schedule to get this exfoliating treatment. In as little as 30 to 45 minutes, we can complete your treatment and you should be able to return to your daily activities. Extensive preparation or recovery periods are not necessary.

How Often Should You Dermaplane?

After examining your skin condition and asking about your treatment goals, our team will recommend how often you should get an exfoliating treatment. In general, we recommend waiting three to four weeks before visiting our med spa for another treatment session. Because the treatment deeply exfoliates your skin, you’ll need to give your skin some time to resurface and regenerate.

Is It Possible To Improve and Prolong Your Results?

To achieve the best results from your skin-smoothing treatment, you need to have good skincare habits and maintain good overall health. Here are some of the ways you can get even better results from skin resurfacing.

Protect Your Skin From the Sun

During your exfoliating treatment, we remove the topmost surface layer of your skin, allowing the healthier, glowing skin underneath to resurface. This deep exfoliation removes your skin’s additional protection against the sun’s harmful UV rays, so you’ll need to wear broad-spectrum sunscreen and wear hats whenever you’re outdoors.

Right after getting the treatment, your skin will be vulnerable to sun exposure, so it’s important to avoid tanning, stay indoors whenever possible, and wear sunscreen.

Maintain a Suitable Skincare Routine

Do you use the right products to take care of your skin? In doing so, you can make the most of your cosmetic treatments and get the best possible results. It’s a must to use a combination of gentle cleansers, moisturizers, and serums to take good care of your skin after any exfoliating treatment. Our team can recommend products that are most suitable for your skin.

Make Healthy Lifestyle Choices

Drinking enough water, maintaining a healthy diet, and avoiding stress and pollution are some of the ways you can keep your skin at its peak condition. By making sure you’re healthy inside and out, you can keep your appearance looking more radiant and youthful for longer.

Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

The good news is that our exfoliating treatment is good for all skin types and colors. If you have sensitive skin that tends to get irritated with other skin treatments like dermabrasion, you may find dermaplaning treatments to be a gentler, more suitable option. The same is true for those who do not wish to get chemical peels or laser treatments.

If you are pregnant, do not have active acne, and want to take care of your skin, dermaplaning is a safe and convenient option. The treatment does not involve the application of chemicals on your skin.
