Using a “butter blade” and a delicate touch, the provider simply abrades the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
This is a great treatment for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want exfoliation. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess 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.
Although merely an old wives’ tale, many patients are often concerned that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. The hair will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. This is why our providers perform this treatment to prepare the skin for procedures such as laser treatments or peel treatments.
The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance.
