Dermaplaning is the ideal non-surgical, non-invasive, and non-injectable treatment for facial rejuvenation. This treatment involves scraping away the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your skin’s surface, thereby making your skin look bright and radiant. If your skin is looking dull or tired, you should seriously consider a dermaplaning session at our luxurious medical spa in Pleasant Hill and Martinez.

About Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a form of deep exfoliation that doesn’t rely on chemical peels or lasers. This treatment involves using an ultrafine scalpel to scrape away the skin’s outermost layers, thereby exfoliating the dead skin cells, debris, oils, makeup residue, and peach fuzz. Removing the dead skin cells and surface impurities revitalizes your skin, making it look brighter and more radiant. It also unclogs your pores, reducing the likelihood of breakouts.

Am I a suitable candidate for dermaplaning?

You’re a suitable candidate for dermaplaning if you want a brighter and more radiant complexion. This is one of the only skin rejuvenation treatments suitable for pregnant women, those who are nursing, or people with sensitive skins.

What happens during dermaplaning?

During the dermaplaning session, your cosmetic provider will run a 10-gauge scalpel against your skin at a 45-degree angle. The scalpel will scrape away the dead skin cells and impurities from your skin’s surface. Finally, we’ll apply a concoction of serums, vitamins, and nutrients to your skin.

What are the side effects of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning doesn’t involve any side effects. Your skin might look a little flushed, and you may experience temporary redness, dryness, or flaking, but only for a few hours.

What is the recovery process after dermaplaning?

You should avoid heavy workouts and additional exfoliation for 24 hours after dermaplaning. However, you can resume your daily activities and work immediately.
