Dermaplaning in Boca Raton
Achieve skin that’s smooth and hair-free
Many factors can contribute to skin that looks dull and feels rough. With dermaplaning, patients can have peach fuzz and dead skin cells removed to achieve completely smooth, even skin.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a completely non-invasive skin treatment that addresses only the very outer layers of skin. Using a thin blade, dead skin cells, and small hairs known as peach fuzz are gently scraped away to reveal new, smooth skin beneath. This also allows skincare products to work more effectively for optimal rejuvenation. Dermaplaning is often performed before other skin treatments like laser resurfacing or chemical peels to prep the skin.
Who is a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Candidates for dermaplaning are those who experience rough skin or uneven texture. Dermaplaning can be used to unclog the pores, remove dead skin cells, and scrape away unwanted facial hair. Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types except for those with severe acne. The treatment is also safe for those who are pregnant, as no harsh products are involved. Because it is noninvasive with no side effects, patients often choose to have dermaplaning before an event to get glowing skin right away.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive and painless process. Our experienced aesthetician will use a thin blade to scrape away dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Patients report a sensation similar to shaving the legs with little to no discomfort. Flat areas of the face will be treated like the forehead, chin, and cheeks. This process can take about 30 minutes to complete.
Recovery and Results
After dermaplaning, there are little to no side effects and no required downtime. The newly treated skin will be extra sensitive to the sun, so sunscreen should be applied when going outdoors. Patients can enjoy more radiant, softer skin right away. The results can last for several weeks before a touch-up session is needed.
