The benefits of regular dermaplaning treatments

Dr. Robyn Roberts sees many patients looking for ways to easily improve their skin’s appearance. Those with aging skin may also look for ways to keep their makeup from caking into fine lines and wrinkles, making them even more obvious. A great solution to this is dermaplaning, a procedure popular at Splendid Aesthetics in Kyle, Texas.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure intended to exfoliate the skin, remove dirt, and eliminate vellus hair.

How is dermaplaning performed?

By using a dermatome, a surgical instrument used to remove thin slices of skin, Dr. Roberts or an aesthetician scrapes off the top layers of dead skin to leave the skin underneath brighter and smoother.

Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?

While this cosmetic procedure can be effective for making skin appear brighter and smoother and often lasts up to 3 weeks, it is not recommended for anyone with inflammatory skin conditions like acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, or sunburn.

What can dermaplaning improve?

If you have any of the following concerns about your skin, you could be a good candidate for dermaplaning:

  • Lines or wrinkles
  • Dull, rough skin
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne scars
  • Peach fuzz (vellus hair)

How long do I need to recover after dermaplaning?

Though there are no limitations on activities after dermaplaning, side effects can include red and swollen skin, soreness, and burning or tingling for up to 48 hours. These will often resolve on your own, and redness may be improved with cosmetics if you are returning to work or school immediately after your procedure.
