Dermaplaning Annandale VA

The appeal of flawless-looking skin has only increased over time with the wide implementation and usage of social media. There are countless products that promise flawless skin but don’t deliver on results, leading to dissatisfaction and wasted money. Fortunately, there is a skin treatment available that promises stunning results immediately. Many consumers have been turning to dermaplaning to get the results that seem impossible to achieve alone. 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure meant to improve the look of skin. Estheticians performing this skin treatment use a tool called the dermatome which resembles a scalpel in purpose and use. The dermatome tool lightly scrapes off the top layer of skin, effectively removing any dead skin cells and peach fuzz that may accumulate on the surface of the skin. The result of this treatment is glowing and fresh-looking skin! Dermaplaning is recommended for those who suffer from skin conditions like:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea 
  • Eczema
  • Psoriasis 
  • Frequent sunburns

Those taking medications for any of the above conditions may need to consult a medical professional before treatment to make sure that they are able to proceed safely. It is also important that untrained individuals do not attempt this treatment at home without the assistance of a professional as it could lead to permanent scarring. 

Skin Benefits

The many benefits of dermaplaning contribute to the large number of people that have started regularly undergoing this treatment. Some of the benefits that patients have reported include:

  • It is good for acne scars- While this treatment is not recommended for those currently suffering from acne breakouts, dermaplaning can remove excess dirt and oil in the skin and on facial hair which can help prevent future breakouts. Additionally, dermaplaning can lessen the appearance of dark acne scars on the patient’s face. 
  • It gives the skin a smooth and rejuvenated appearance- Oftentimes, peach fuzz and dead skin cells can weigh down the appearance of the skin and make it appear dull. By removing these interferences, the skin gives a much brighter and more youthful glow. 
  • It can reduce the appearance of your pores- As the dermatome tool removes unwanted materials from the skin, it can also clean out the pores making them appear smaller than they originally were. 
  • It’s convenient- This treatment can be done fairly quickly, in no more than an hour, and requires no downtime on the part of the patient. 

Due to the ease of the dermaplaning procedure, many people have gravitated towards this treatment. Not all people are ideal candidates for dermaplaning so it is important to speak to a dermatologist before booking an appointment. 

The Results

The results of dermaplaning are immediate and stunning which is why so many people enjoy regularly receiving this treatment. However, results don’t tend to last for extended periods of time, especially if the patient has a quick hair growth cycle. Most hair begins to grow back a few weeks after treatment and patients typically receive treatments every 4-6 weeks to keep up with the results.
