What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning at Beauty Factory Medspa

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz.”

How does it work?

Dermaplaning is like giving your skin a gentle, deep clean. During the procedure, a skincare professional uses a small, sterile blade to carefully remove the top layer of dead skin cells and fine hairs from your face.

It’s kind of like shaving, but much gentler and done on your whole face.

Dermaplaning leaves your skin looking smoother, brighter, and more refreshed. It also helps your skincare products to penetrate better, so they can work more effectively. It is a gentle and effective way to give your skin a fresh start and reveal its natural glow.

Cristian was super gentle and so knowledgeable about all the products and procedures, he made sure to ask the right questions so he could take the best care of my skin.

Pre-Treatment Instructions

Before getting Dermaplaning treatments, it's important to prepare your skin and follow specific instructions to ensure a safe and effective experience. Here are some important things to take note of and instructions on what to do before getting treatments:

Beauty Factory Medspa Pre-Treatment

Avoid Sun Exposure

It's advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning beds in the days leading up to your treatment. Sunburned or sun-damaged skin may be more sensitive during the procedure, increasing the risk of irritation or discomfort.

Discontinue Exfoliating Products

Discontinue the use of harsh exfoliating products, such as scrubs or chemical exfoliants, for at least a few days before your appointment. Over-exfoliation can make the skin more susceptible to irritation during the treatment.

Inform Your Skincare Professional

Inform us of any skincare products, medications, or treatments you're currently using or undergoing. This includes prescription medications, over-the-counter skincare products, and topical treatments. Some ingredients or medications may affect the skin's sensitivity or response to the treatment.

Avoid Waxing or Hair Removal

Refrain from waxing or undergoing hair removal treatments, such as threading or tweezing, in the treatment area at least one week before your appointment. Waxing or hair removal can irritate the skin and make it more sensitive during the treatment.

Stay Hydrated

Proper hydration is essential for maintaining healthy skin and optimizing the results of your treatment. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment to ensure your skin is well-hydrated and plump, which can enhance the efficacy of the treatment.

Attend a Consultation

If it's your first time getting Dermaplaning, consider scheduling a consultation with us. During the consultation, you can discuss your skincare concerns, goals, and any questions or apprehensions you may have about the treatment.

BOOK YOUR FREE CONSULTATION

Follow Any Pre-Treatment Instructions

We may provide specific pre-treatment instructions to follow before your appointment. These instructions may include avoiding certain skincare products, medications, or activities that can irritate the skin or interfere with the treatment process.

Arrive with Clean Skin

Arrive at your appointment with clean, makeup-free skin. This allows your skincare professional to assess your skin condition accurately and ensures optimal results from the treatment. If you're wearing makeup, your skincare professional may need to remove it before starting the treatment.

Post-Treatment Instructions

By following these important post-treatment instructions and guidelines, you can help promote optimal healing and maximize the results of your Dermaplaning treatment. If you have any questions or concerns after your treatment, don't hesitate to contact us for guidance and support.

Beauty Factory Medspa - Care Instructions – Post-Treatment - Microneedling w Rejuvapen NXT®

Avoid Sun Exposure

Direct sun exposure should be avoided for at least 24 to 48 hours after Dermaplaning. The freshly exfoliated skin may be more sensitive to sunlight, increasing the risk of sunburn and skin damage. If outdoor exposure is unavoidable, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses.

Skip Harsh Skincare Products

Avoid using harsh or abrasive skincare products, such as scrubs, exfoliants, or chemical peels, for at least one week after Dermaplaning. These products can irritate the freshly exfoliated skin and may compromise the results of the treatment.

Moisturize Regularly

After Dermaplaning, it's essential to keep the skin hydrated and nourished to support the healing process. Use a gentle, hydrating moisturizer twice daily to maintain optimal skin hydration and soothe any potential post-treatment irritation or dryness.

Limit Makeup Use

It's generally recommended to avoid applying makeup immediately after Dermaplaning to allow the skin to breathe and recover fully. If makeup application is necessary, use lightweight, non-comedogenic products and avoid heavy or pore-clogging formulas.

Avoid Touching the Skin

Refrain from touching or picking at the treated skin as it heals. Picking at scabs or irritation can increase the risk of infection and compromise the results of the treatment. Let the skin heal naturally and avoid unnecessary manipulation.

Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of water in the days following Dermaplaning to help maintain skin hydration from within. Proper hydration supports the skin's healing process and promotes overall skin health and vitality.

Follow Any Additional Post-Treatment Recommendations

We may provide specific post-treatment recommendations based on your individual skin type and concerns. This may include using certain skincare products, avoiding certain activities or treatments, or scheduling follow-up appointments for assessment and maintenance.

Be Patient

Allow your skin time to fully heal and regenerate after Dermaplaning. Results may vary depending on individual skin type and concerns, but you can typically expect to see smoother, brighter skin within a few days to a week after the treatment.

Why choose Dermaplaning?

Smoother Skin Texture

Dermaplaning gently exfoliates the skin, removing dead skin cells and surface debris, resulting in a smoother and more refined skin texture.

Improved Product Absorption

Even Skin Tone

It helps to promote a more even skin tone by eliminating surface imperfections and discoloration, resulting in a more uniform complexion.

Brighter Complexion

The exfoliating action reveals fresh, new skin cells underneath, giving the complexion a brighter and more radiant appearance.

Temporary Removal of Peach Fuzz

It effectively removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin, leaving it smoother and softer to the touch.

Diminished Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dermaplaning stimulates cellular turnover and collagen production, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.

Enhanced Skin Hydration

Minimized Pore Size

Improved Makeup Application
