Dermaplaning is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure designed to address common skin concerns along with various signs of aging. Safe and effective for all skin types and tones, dermaplaning requires no downtime and can produce noticeable results after a single treatment. However, for many people, optimal results may take a series of treatments – most often six – performed over the course of several months.
If you are interested in learning more about dermaplaning or if you would like to schedule a consultation at our Leawood office, please call us at 913-341-2188 today. We welcome patients from Overland Park, Kansas City, and all surrounding areas of Kansas and Missouri.
What Can Dermaplaning Treat?
Dermaplaning is used to treat a range of issues including:
- Dull Skin
- Dry Skin
- Sun Spots
- Acne Scars
- Pock Marks
- Fine Wrinkles
Incredibly gentle, dermaplaning exfoliates the stratum corneum (outermost layer of the skin) along with vellus hair, the fine, light-colored hair often referred to as “peach fuzz” or “baby hair”. In so doing, this procedure produces an overall more radiant appearance to the skin, helping to create a smoother and more youthful look after each treatment.
Recovery from Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning will create a brighter, smoother complexion, but results may take a few days to be realized. Immediately after the treatment, you may experience a slight reddening of the skin, but this can easily be handled with topical ointments recommended by the skin care professionals at our office. It is important that you avoid exfoliating treatments and other potential irritants, such as makeup, for at least 24-hours following treatment – and that you use a full spectrum sunscreen to help prevent damaging your newly refreshed skin every day.
The Dermaplaning Procedure
Dermaplaning is done in-office and takes around 30 to 45 minutes to complete. Before the procedure, a numbing spray may be used to help ensure optimal comfort, though the procedure is minimally invasive and should not result in pain.
During the procedure, a special tool is used to gently remove dead skin and vellus hairs, allowing the smoother skin underneath to become exposed. Following this gentle exfoliation, we will apply a cooling gel to help soothe the skin and begin the healing process.
Dermaplaning is not a deep cosmetic treatment and results are typically subtle. It may take two to three treatments for results to become more visible, with optimal outcomes often requiring more. During your initial consultation, we will carefully evaluate your skin, assess your areas of concern, and help you determine how many treatments may be necessary to reach your goals.
Maintaining Dermaplaning Results
As a minimally-invasive non-surgical procedure, dermaplaning is not designed to produce long-lasting results. A single treatment can be expected to produce results for around one month, with subsequent treatments helping to extend this period for around one month each. This makes maintenance important.
The best way to maintain dermaplaning results is through a consistent at-home skin care routine. We carry a comprehensive range of SkinMedica® skincare products that can be customized to address your specific needs. We also offer a wide variety of non-surgical treatments that can be used alternately with dermaplaning to help produce longer-lasting and more substantial results. We would be happy to discuss this in greater detail during your time in our care.
