What Is Dermaplaning?

Many people want to achieve a smoother, radiant, and more youthful complexion on their face – especially to counteract the effects of aging. However, most individuals would prefer to opt for an effective treatment that doesn’t involve surgery.

Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive cosmetic facial rejuvenation treatment that doesn’t involve anesthesia, lasers, or machines to achieve desired results. Dermaplaning is one of the many cosmetic treatments offered by Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead.

How Is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning is performed as an outpatient treatment. The process involves using a dermaplaning blade that gently exfoliates the skin. The dermaplaning blade is a medical-grade scalpel that must be used by a highly trained professional. 

The treatment essentially resurfaces the skin, eradicating the top layer and removing the “peach fuzz” (Vellus hair). The benefits of dermaplaning include fewer wrinkles and fine lines, diminished hyperpigmentation, and a smoother, hairless complexion.

The Benefits of Clinical Dermaplaning Over At-Home Dermaplaning

It’s possible to purchase DIY dermaplaning kits that you can use at home. However, such kits typically don’t yield the same results and benefits as dermaplaning offered by Dr. Maltais and her team at Physician Skin Solutions at Arrowhead.

Using at-home dermaplaning kits significantly increases your risk of infections, complications, pain, and even injuries. Dermaplaning must be done at a precise angle and with a medical-grade tool in order to achieve the desired results. The tools used for clinical dermaplaning are medical-grade compared with retail versions. Our team is also highly trained in the correct methods of performing dermaplaning treatments.

When it comes to facial rejuvenation, dermaplaning offers a lot of benefits for little financial outlay. It’s also possible to combine dermaplaning with other cosmetic treatments, such as microdermabrasion and chemical peels, for enhanced results.

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

You might be a good candidate for dermaplaning if you have cosmetic skin concerns due to the effects of the aging process or you have scarring caused by an acne outbreak. Dermaplaning is ideal for people of all skin types and tones.

What’s more, dermaplaning is a safe cosmetic treatment because there is no surgery involved, nor is anything being injected. The procedure simply consists of using a medical-grade blade to resurface the damaged skin layers from your face.
