Andres Plastic Surgery is thrilled bring you a trade secret procedure, proven to give you that lit-from-within glow.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of physical exfoliation of the skin performed with a 10-gauge surgical blade. While that may sound scary, never fear! Dermaplaning is both safe and painless. Holding the blade at a 45-degree angle to your skin, your technician will drag the blade over the surface of your skin removing dead skin, dry or dehydrated cells, and vellus hairs in the process. The end result of dermaplaning in Phoenix is skin which is beautifully soft and radiant.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning provides exfoliating benefits to your skin, improving your skin’s texture, luminosity, and encouraging faster cell turnover. Dermaplaning provides a number of benefits including:
- Better absorption of products
- Removes 21 days' worth of dead skin
- More even texture
- Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduces the appearance of acne scars
- No downtime
Am I a good candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive procedure. It doesn’t employ any lasers, chemicals, or acids, and there is no downtime. It is a great option for people with sensitive skin, as it is much less abrasive than traditional skin treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion. It is an excellent choice for anyone that has fine facial hair and/or visible veins.
People that are currently taking Accutane, blood thinners, or have hemophilia or fragile skin, are not good candidates. In addition, patients with very coarse facial hair, or anybody currently dealing with active acne or psoriasis, are not good candidates. Such individuals will be recommended alternative treatment options.
What Can I Expect During my Scottsdale Dermaplaning Procedure?
Dermaplaning is performed in the comfort of our Scottsdale facilities, where you can expect concierge-style service and attention. Your technician will hold a scalpel at a 45-degree to the surface of your skin, gently exfoliating dry, dehydrated cells from its surface. Carefully paying attention to your skin’s contours, the blade will be swept across the entire surface of your face to achieve a uniform exfoliation. While dermaplaning is completely safe, it is important that you not make any sudden movements during the procedure. The entire process requires about 30 minutes.
What Can I Expect Following Dermaplaning?
Since dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure, there is no downtime required. You may return to your routine activities as soon as you leave our office. You should avoid using any exfoliating acids in your skincare routine for at least three days following the procedure and should be sure to use sunscreen each day as your skin will be particularly vulnerable to the sun’s ultraviolet rays immediately following your session. Your will feel sensitive, and it is advised you take advantage of the addition of serums to nourish your skin after your dermaplaning treatment in Scottsdale.
