Dermaplaning in Oklahoma City is a procedure that provides effective skin rejuvenation. During it, a sterilized surgical scalpel is used to scrape the topmost layer of the facial skin.
The scalpel removes all the dirt, grime, and dead skin cells on the face that make the skin look uneven. It also removes all the little fuzzy hairs, or “peach fuzz.”
This results in a clean, smooth, and exfoliated look. It simulates the development of fresh skin cells for a fresher and more youthful appearance.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning removes the vellus hair that cannot usually be removed by other methods like waxing or tweezing because they are so small. The sharpness of the scalpel effectively shaves them right off.
Not only does it remove peach fuzz, it also removes dead skin cells and other debris. This removes the appearance of fine lines, acne, and hyperpigmentation. The skin is left looking younger and revitalized and feeling incredibly soft.
Ideal Dermaplaning Candidates
Because dermaplaning is such a simple treatment, it is a safe option for almost all patients. It exfoliates the skin without being abrasive or using harsh chemicals. Even pregnant women can safely undergo this treatment without any issues.
Patients with active cystic acne in the treatment area must address this before they can come in for a dermaplaning treatment session. If you have taken Accutane or isotretinoin in the last six months, you may need to postpone your dermaplaning treatment. Patients with severe sunburns or especially sensitive skin may not be ideal candidates.
Your Dermaplaning Consultation
Meeting with a skincare professional is a must before arranging a dermaplaning treatment. A consultation allows the skincare expert to examine your skin and discuss your beauty goals. They will also look over your medical history, ensuring that the procedure is a good option for you.
You will learn more about the dermaplaning treatment process during this consultation, including preparation and aftercare. Your skincare expert will be happy to answer questions.
Before the day of your dermaplaning session, it will be helpful to avoid exfoliating products and retinoids.
The Dermaplaning Treatment Process
Dermaplaning is relaxing and completely pain-free. It usually only takes ten to twenty minutes to perform.
During a dermaplaning treatment session, the scalpel is held at a 45° angle by the skincare professional. Short upward strokes are made across the face to evenly exfoliate the skin.
A lot of cosmetic procedures out there involve recovery time. Dermaplaning, however, requires no recovery period. All patients need to do is use a cleanser on the night of getting the procedure done.
Minor redness and irritation may be present for a couple days after the treatment session. Patients must avoid retinoids and must not apply makeup for 24 hours. They must avoid sun damage and wear a proper sunscreen to protect their skin.
The Cost of Dermaplaning
The cost of a dermaplaning treatment session varies. Generally, price is relatively low due to the simple nature of the procedure.
