Understanding how dermaplaning can enhance your skin

Dermatologists and other professionals have a wide range of tools at their disposal for enhancing the skin’s appearance and health. The providers at North Scottsdale Med Spa work directly with patients to help them choose the best treatment for their needs. Our practice might recommend to patients the benefits of dermaplaning.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure that is used to achieve healthy, beautiful skin that is soft, glowing, and healthy. To do so, our providers will use a special instruments that helps in removing dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” from the skin that can give it a dull color and complexion. This procedure is perfect for removing facial hair, dirt and oil accumulation while stimulating the skin’s natural cellular turnover for a healthier glow. Uneven skin texture and color is improved, and patients will find that they have rejuvenated their appearance with a single procedure!

How often can dermaplaning be performed?

It takes time for cellular turnover to occur and for vellus hair to return, so our providers often recommend that patients book their appointments a month to six weeks apart. This is done to maintain the results and keep the skin healthy and glowing for the long run!

Who is a candidate?

Patients who want to enhance their appearance with dermaplaning are encouraged to book a consultation visit with the team at North Scottsdale Med Spa to determine if they are a good candidate for this treatment. Most individuals can enjoy dermaplaning and its results.

What can I expect from my appointment?

Before starting the procedure, the skin is cleansed to remove makeup, dirt, and oil from the skin. Then, using a special instrument to remove dead skin cells and vellus, the skin is treated with great care and attention from our providers. The procedure can be performed on all skin types and is not painful. Following treatments, the skin is sensitive to sun exposure and should be protected with high SPF sunscreen for several days afterward. We urge patients with active acne flare-ups to reschedule their appointment, as this procedure should be avoided during these times.
