What are the benefits of dermaplaning treatment in Chagrin Falls, OH?
Patients in the Chagrin Falls, OH area who are interested in quality care of the skin are welcome to book an appointment with Dr. Jennifer Kish, DO of the Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine. Enhancing the skin may require certain treatments to boost the effects and help patients in achieving the look they desire in a shorter time. Our practice offers a treatment that provides a variety of benefits called dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is offered at Seriously Skin Cosmetic and Laser Medicine for patients who are ready to transform their skin to reveal a brighter, smoother complexion. This exfoliation treatment is performed by a professional who uses a scalpel to essentially scrape off the upper layer of dull, dead skin cells. While this may sound scary, it’s safe and effective when performed by a dedicated professional.
What does dermaplaning remove?
Not only does dermaplaning remove the upper layer of dead skin, but it can also eliminate “peach fuzz” – that light facial hair that can become more noticeable when patients wear cosmetics. The surface is left extremely smooth, and the fresh skin allows better penetration of the skin care products patients know and love. Dermaplaning is great for creating a flawless canvas for the application of makeup, while also preparing the skin for other treatments patients may consider such as laser therapies.
How does dermaplaning compare to microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion utilizes a specialized device to essentially “sand and suction” the dead skin cells that can cause clogged pores on the face. It is a type of physical exfoliation. However, dermaplaning is different, because it is better suited for patients with drier skin types and those with short facial hair they’d like to address at the same time. For some, the treatment choice is just dependent on personal preference.
Who is a candidate for dermaplaning?
Nearly everyone can enjoy dermaplaning, though we do tend to avoid performing this procedure on patients who have acne or acne-prone skin. There should be no breakouts at the time of treatment. This treatment can be performed on patients that are pregnant or nursing because there are no chemicals used that can harm the baby, ensuring complete safety for everyone involved.
What to expect during a dermaplaning procedure
Patients are often interested in finding out how the procedure is performed. Dr. Jennifer Kish, DO begins by thoroughly cleansing and drying the skin. Then, the skin is pulled tight as a sterile 10-gauge scalpel is used at a 45-degree angle to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz in short, quick strokes. The entire face is treated within approximately a half hour.
What side effects are associated with dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that is side effect free! There is no downtime or healing that is required, though most patients will be aware of some pink coloration due to the treatment that can be easily improved with wearing cosmetics for the remainder of the day. The skin will also be extremely sensitive to sun exposure, so we recommend either avoiding sun exposure for a few days after treatment or using a very high SPF sunscreen to reduce the risk of excessive UVA and UVB exposure that can lead to hyperpigmentation.
