Conveniently located to serve Hawaii
Dermaplaning in Hawaii can help you achieve a vibrant, smooth complexion. If you’re looking for a convenient treatment to finally get a refreshed look, consider this cosmetic procedure. Dermaplaning is not invasive, making it a good choice for patients who are not ready to undergo a surgical treatment. This treatment must be performed by a trained skincare professional.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that removes the top layer of the skin. It is also referred to as microplaning or blading. It uses a specialized blade called a dermatome to manually get rid of built-up dead skin cells.
This treatment can also remove “peach fuzz,” which are the short, fine hairs on the face. Additionally, it can reduce the pockmarked appearance of deep acne scars for a more youthful look.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?
If you have constantly been wanting to reduce the appearance of your deep acne scars, then you may be an ideal candidate for dermaplaning. It works for every skin type and tone, resulting in a healthier, brighter complexion. Pregnant women who want to get a youthful glow without using any chemical products may undergo this facial treatment.
If you have cystic acne, inflammation, sunburns, or eczema on the target areas, you are not recommended for dermaplaning, since it can worsen these conditions.
When you come in for a consultation, a physical examination of your face and skin will be performed. You will be asked about your skin issues and your goals for the procedure. You will also be asked about your medical history, skin care regimen, and any recent treatments. Based on this, a personalized dermaplaning treatment plan will be created to address your skin problems.
The dermaplaning procedure is a swift process that usually just takes a few minutes. It starts with cleansing the skin thoroughly to remove impurities. Then, a numbing substance may be applied.
After that, the sharp scalpel or blade will be safely and painlessly dragged across the skin at a 45-degree angle to remove the outermost layer, which can consist of scar tissue, debris, and dead cells. The patient will typically only feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment.
After the blading procedure, a soothing substance may be applied, as well as sunscreen, to protect the newly treated skin.
There is no downtime or recovery needed after a dermaplaning treatment. You will be able to resume your normal activities right after the treatment.
You may notice some redness for the first few days; this will subside quickly. Avoid using exfoliators and scrubs for the next several days. Make sure to apply sunscreen whenever you need to go outside, since the sun can reverse the effects of the procedure.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
Dermaplaning can sometimes cost different amounts depending on the extent of work performed and the type of tool used. The overall price may be affected by the topical applications included and other fees incurred if combined with other skin treatments.
