Dermaplaning Brings About Refreshed, Glowing Skin

Dermaplaning is a skincare treatment that involves the use of a specialized scalpel to gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and remove fine vellus hair, commonly known as "peach fuzz." This reveals a smoother, brighter skin complexion, making it a popular option for those seeking a refreshed, youthful appearance.

What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Besides its immediate rejuvenating effects, dermaplaning benefits include improved skin texture, reduced appearance of fine lines, and a more even skin tone. Additional benefits include:

  • Encouraging skin renewal: Dermaplaning in La Jolla stimulates the skin's natural regenerative process, promoting the growth of healthy, new cells. As a result, the skin appears smoother, firmer, and more youthful.
  • No downtime: Unlike more invasive skincare treatments, dermaplaning requires no downtime for recovery. Clients can immediately return to their daily activities after the procedure, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.
  • Minimal side effects: Some reddening may occur within 24-48 hours after the procedure, but it generally subsides quickly. 
  • Improved skincare product absorption: By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, skincare products are better absorbed, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Complementary to other treatments: The results of other skincare treatments, such as chemical peels and facial masks, are enhanced as they prepare the skin to better receive and respond to these procedures.

A Skin Rejuvenation Technique for Nearly Everyone

Candidates for dermaplaning range from young adults seeking to maintain their skin's healthy glow to more mature individuals looking for a non-invasive treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The procedure is quick, painless, and requires minimal downtime, making it an accessible option for those with busy lifestyles.

However, there are certain cases where dermaplaning might not be the best choice. Dr. Bolitho may recommend alternative treatments to help individuals with active cystic acne, thick facial hair, or other specific skin conditions meet their desired outcome.

How Often Should Dermaplaning Be Done?

Skin cell turnover plays a significant role in determining the ideal treatment schedule for dermaplaning. Generally, the skin regenerates itself approximately every 28 to 40 days. Dr. Bolitho generally recommends dermaplaning treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. This timeline allows for the proper regeneration of skin cells and ensures that the procedure is performed on a fresh layer of skin.
