Dermaplaning in The Woodlands is an excellent exfoliating method. Using a sterilized surgical blade, the outermost layers of dead skin cells are removed, along with fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz.”
This is a painless non-abrasive treatment for all skin types. A noticeable improvement is immediate with a smoother texture and fresh skin appearance! Hair returns softly and will not become coarser because of the treatment.
Pairing Dermaplaning with a Micropeel
In addition to the dermaplaning treatment, a micropeel can be applied with niacin and lactic acid to gently exfoliate and decongest even the most sensitive skin. Products penetrate the skin better following this treatment. It is excellent prior to a deeper chemical peel to ensure the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning Treatment?
Almost everybody is a suitable candidate for dermaplaning procedures, which are not intrusive. Dermaplaning can help you combat apparent indications of aging and sun damage, as well as provide preventative care therapy. Dermaplaning is a quick in-spa procedure that requires minimal downtime, making it suitable for people who lead busy lives.
Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types and tones because it does not use lasers, acids, or chemicals. Women who are nursing or pregnant are good candidates for this resurfacing treatment because it is so safe. Dermaplaning can help patients with thin or sensitive skin improve their overall skin health.
Your skincare expert will make sure that all makeup and dirt are removed before beginning the dermaplaning procedure. To remove any remaining makeup or debris, the cleanser will be rubbed into the skin in circular strokes.
There should be no discomfort throughout the dermaplaning technique. During the therapy, you may get a tingling feeling. A numbing spray or local anesthetic mixed with a sedative may be used as sedation options.
Your skincare expert will use electronic or manual dermaplaning equipment to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle after you have relaxed. This will last approximately 20 to 30 minutes as the skin is gently exfoliated.
What to Expect After Dermaplaning Treatment
Dermaplaning requires no recovery time or downtime. After two or three days, redness or a feeling similar to getting a scrape may occur.
Although you may notice that your skin looks brighter quickly after a dermaplaning treatment, the full benefits usually take a few days to become visible. In the days following the procedure, you will be able to see the results more clearly as any redness fades.
The effects of dermaplaning are not long-lasting. According to the technique, dead skin cells can be removed for up to three weeks. Your results are expected to fade within three weeks to a month.
You will need to be particularly cautious about sun exposure after a dermaplaning procedure. Sun exposure can reverse the benefits of dermaplaning or cause pigment blotches on newly exposed skin cells. Do not leave the house without applying sunscreen to your face in the weeks following a dermaplaning procedure.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
The cost of a dermaplaning treatment is $100. The price of dermaplaning paired with a micropeel is $125.
