Dermaplaning is a highly effective procedure for removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells. The Dermaplane will also remove the layer of vellous hair that often covers the face.

Combine with a hydrating mask will be perfect instant reword treatment. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique in which a trained practitioner uses a medical scalpel to precisely remove the outermost layers of your skin. While the procedure might sound intimidating, it is a safe, effective treatment option with virtually no risk of adverse effects.

Dermaplaning takes as little as 30 minutes to complete and is not an uncomfortable process. The skin around your eyes, nose, and eyebrows is avoided.

In addition to removing cells on your epidermis, dermaplaning also removes the fine, vellus hair known as “peach fuzz.” Those hairs can trap oil and dirt, worsening clogged pores and breakouts.

Dermaplaning is a great treatment option for men and women who have dry or roughly textured skin. It can also be good for those with mature skin, as dead skin cells tend to accumulate faster as you age. It is a great treatment for expectant or breastfeeding mothers who may not be able to pursue other aesthetic procedures.

This treatment is not right for everyone, however. If any of these conditions apply, you may want to explore other treatment options:

  • Very oily skin
  • Active acne breakouts
  • Significant facial hair

The team at The Med Spa at Matthews Internal Medicine offer a wide range of aesthetics treatments using state-of-the-art tools and techniques. If dermaplaning isn’t right for you, your provider can guide you toward treatments that can better meet your needs.

Dermaplaning reveals a layer of fresh, healthy skin cells, and incorporating other skin care treatments after dermaplaning can boost the effects. For example, a light chemical peel can deliver even more impressive results when applied immediately after dermaplaning.

Discuss your skin care history and treatment goals with your practitioner before moving forward with any treatment option. Many aesthetics treatments can be combined or performed in a certain order to facilitate optimal results and give you a greater value for your investment.

The team at Apex-MD is committed to educating you on the pros and cons of various treatment options. Enabling you to make an informed decision about your skin care is a top priority, and is among the reasons why so many men and women in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina, area wouldn’t consider going elsewhere for their aesthetics needs.
