Dermaplaning facial treatment in Ladera Ranch uses an exfoliating blade to remove dead skin cells and hair from the face. The treatment can also be called microplaning or blading.
The goal of dermaplaning is to make the skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant by removing deep scarring from acne, uneven pockmarks on the skin, and “peach fuzz” (the short, soft hairs on the face).
Clients with the following skin conditions may benefit from dermaplaning:
- Fine wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Dull skin
- Dry skin
- Sun-damaged skin
How Treatment Works
Dermaplaning treatments use a razor designed to remove body hair.
The beauty specialist will aim a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and drag it slowly across the skin, removing dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may cause the skin’s surface to look uneven.
Due to daily exposure to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage, the top layer of skin may start to appear dull and make an individual look older than they really are. Dermaplaning removes damaged skin cells so that newer skin cells can be visible.
What to Expect During Treatment
A dermaplaning procedure shouldn’t cause any pain, though clients may feel a tingling sensation during treatment.
The client will be instructed to sit down on their provider’s chair in a clean, comfortable room. Sedation options may include a numbing spray or local anesthesia combined with an oral sedative to minimize discomfort.
Once the client has relaxed, the beauty technician will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over the skin at a 45-degree angle for 20 to 30 minutes, helping to exfoliate the skin.
At the end of treatment, the beauty specialist will use a soothing substance to calm the skin, as well as sunscreen to protect your face.
Risks and Side Effects of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure that may cause mild side effects, such as slight redness in the face for a few hours after treatment. Some clients develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning.
Rare side effects include infection and scarring; the latter may be treated with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue.
Some clients may experience a patchy skin pigment in the treatment area, which may decrease or disappear over time.
What to Expect After Dermaplaning Facial Treatment in Ladera Ranch
Clients don’t need to plan for any recovery time after a dermaplaning treatment. They may experience redness or feel like their skin is scraped for two to three days right after the procedure.
Clients may notice their skin looking brighter immediately after dermaplaning facial treatment in Ladera Ranch, but it typically takes a few days to see the full results. As the redness subsides, clients will see the results more clearly.
Results of dermaplaning treatment aren’t permanent and may clear away up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. Results may fade after three weeks to one month after treatment.
After a dermaplaning treatment, clients will need to minimize sun exposure to avoid reversing the effects of dermaplaning, or creating pigment blotches on the freshly uncovered skin cells. In the weeks after a dermaplaning treatment, patients should put on sunscreen before leaving the house.
