Naples Medspa Details How Dermaplaning Exfoliates Skin, Eliminates Unwanted Hair

Facials have come a long way since they were first performed during the Elizabethan era in Europe as a means of helping aristocrats maintain fair, smooth skin, which was considered a mark of status at the time. Facial treatment technology has come a long way since then, and Naples, Florida area residents now have numerous advanced facial options from which to choose. One facial option that’s very popular among medspa clients is dermaplaning, which is ideal for those with sensitivities to facial product ingredients or otherwise have sensitive skin. If you’re not familiar with dermaplaning, read on to learn more about this advanced facial treatment  

Dermaplaning Not Only Exfoliates, But Also Removes Unwanted Hair

Simply put, dermaplaning is a process in which a trained and licensed esthetician uses a razor-sharp scalpel to scrape away dead and damaged skin cells, as well as the fine vellus hairs also known as “peach fuzz.” This gentle exfoliation produces smoother, brighter, and more even-toned skin with just one session and, with repeated sessions, can help reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring. The removal of vellus hairs occurs at the surface level and does not affect the hair follicles, thus the hair will eventually grow back. However, any concerns that such hair might grow back thicker due to dermaplaning (or shaving) are unfounded, as one’s hair growth is entirely subject to genetics and hormones.   

Dermaplaning Boosts Collagen Production, Enhances Absorption

By removing dead and damaged skin cells, dermaplaning exposes new skin cells, boosts collagen production, and encourages new skin cell production, all of which gives your face a more youthful-looking appearance. The elimination of dead skin cells also enhances your face’s ability to absorb products, whether moisturizers, makeup, or other facial treatments. In fact, dermaplaning can be recommended in advance of a chemical peel or laser treatment to provide optimum facial results. 

Your Dermaplaning Session at Tru Glō Medspa

Prior to your dermaplaning session at Tru Glō Medspa you should avoid any facial hair removal treatments for at least two weeks and avoid the use of all exfoliating treatments—such as AHAs, BHAs, enzymes, microbeads, and retinoids—for a week. Dermaplaning is not recommended for those who:

  • Have a nickel allergen
  • Have open wounds or lesions
  • Are currently sunburned
  • Have used Accutane within six months
  • Are experiencing an active acne breakout

Your dermaplaning session will begin with the application of rubbing alcohol to your face, which may produce a slight tingling sensation. Your aesthetician will keep your skin taut as the blade is gently scraped across it at a 45-degree angle. There is no pain and the sensation should feel similar to a credit card being scrapped across the skin. Sessions typically last less than 30 minutes and are finalized with an application of hydrating serum. No downtime is needed and you will likely notice an immediate difference in the look of your face, characterized by radiance and a fresh glow.

After your dermaplaning session, you should keep your face hydrated with serums and peptides, which will further help improve the glow of your skin. Avoid direct sun exposure for at least three days after treatment and wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen if going outside. You should also avoid using exfoliating cleaners for at least a week after your session, and instead use gentle, hydrating cleansers for your facial care.
