What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a popular, non-invasive technique to remove the top-layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (also known as “fine hair”). During this procedure, a surgical-grade scalpel is used and as a result, the treatment is best performed by an experienced aesthetician. Dermaplaning is beneficial for helping achieve brighter and “more even” skin. In particular in regard to smoothing the application of makeup following the treatment. While dermaplaning can be performed on any part of the body, it is a less efficient method for covering large areas and therefore is typically only applied to the face.
How does it work?
Dermaplaning is a simple and relatively quick procedure. The treatment involves scraping the top-layer of facial skin with a surgical-grade scalpel to remove vellus hair and exfoliate the skin. Due to the sharpness of the scalpel, it is best performed by an Elan Skin care specialist that has extensive experience with the instrument. No serum or solution is used to allow for best results. Most clients report no irritation or pain during the treatment and absolutely love the way it makes their skin feel after.
Candidates for Dermaplane
Anyone who wants smoother, brighter skin is a candidate for dermaplaning. However, individuals with skin conditions such as highly-sensitive skin, cancer, eczema or severe acne, may want to consult one of our skin care specialists prior to scheduling the procedure.
How do I prepare for my peel?Lush MedSpa recommends that you avoid aggressive exfoliation for 2 days prior to your procedure, that you refrain from waxing in the treated area for 5 days prior and that use cease the use of retinal at least 1 week prior.
How do I know which peel is right for me?We offer a variety of peels, each with unique solutions depending on your individual needs. Prior to scheduling a peel, we recommend you get a pre-peel consultation to determine which peel is best for your individual needs.
Does it hurt?uring the treatment, it is common to feel mild stinging or burning while the solution is in contact with the skin. Following a peel, your skin may appear red, feel tight or be mildly irritated. Collectively, most clients report only mild discomfort during and after the procedure. For more intensive chemical peels, moderate swelling and dryness may occur and in rare cases blistering.
When should I expect to see results from my peel?In the case of many peels, you will see noticeable improvements within the first few days after treatment. However, to achieve significant results, multiple treatments may be required.
What do I do when my skin starts peeling?We recommend you do not pick or pull at the dead skin and allow the skin to slough off naturally at its own pace. For more rapid peeling you can choose to forgo the use of moisturizers; however, if this becomes too uncomfortable moisturize to your comfort level. Once the peeling slows you can reintroduce moisture ideally with a product containing Hyaluronic acid.
