What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning, also known as microplaning or blading, is a cosmetic treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells and the peach fuzz hair from your face.

The exfoliating process smooths out the surface of your skin, restoring a more youthful and radiant look.

When it comes to your skin, Heights Dermatology wants to provide treatments that meet your needs and goals. The practice offers many cutting-edge treatments that provide amazing results with little to no downtime, like dermaplaning.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

When it comes to beauty treatments, dermaplaning offers many benefits. Heights Dermatology recommends the exfoliating procedure to treat:

  • Dull Skin
  • Dry Skin
  • Sun Damaged
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne scars

Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and requires no downtime.

However, your dermatologist might not consider you a candidate for dermaplaning if you have an inflammatory skin condition such as psoriasis, rosacea, or eczema.

What can I expect during dermaplaning?

Heights Dermatology customizes your dermaplaning treatment to match your needs. Your dermatologist reviews the details of your beauty treatment at your consultation, so you know what to expect.

The skin experts recommend you avoid exfoliating your skin for at least three days before your dermaplaning appointment.

For those sensitive to pain, the dermatologists may apply a numbing lotion to the skin before starting the treatment. During your dermaplaning session, your skin care expert uses a surgical blade called a dermatome to remove the dead skin cells and fine hair from the surface of your skin.

Dermaplaning usually takes no more than 30 minutes.

What happens after dermaplaning?

You can resume your usual activities following your dermaplaning session at Heights Dermatology. Though side effects are rare, you may have some skin redness, swelling, or soreness. Your skin may also feel tingly for up to two days after treatment.

You should see improvements in the look of your skin immediately following dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning increases your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. Heights Dermatology recommends regular application of sunscreen to prevent hyperpigmentation.

Because dermaplaning removes the dead cells from the surface of your skin, it makes a good pre-treatment for cosmetic procedures like chemical peels.
