What is dermaplaning?
An increasingly popular treatment for brides, entertainment personalities, or anyone in front of the camera, dermaplaning is a painless method of exfoliation that uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape away or exfoliate the outermost layer of skin, eliminating the dull dead skin cells, pigmentation, and vellus hair (or “peach fuzz”) to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe, non-invasive treatment that is perfect for those struggling with age-related wrinkles and fine lines; hyperpigmentation; acne scarring; poor skin tone and texture; sun damage, and many other complexion flaws.
Dermaplaning is simple and brief, so it’s ideal for those busy Beverly Hills clients who desire no downtime and no discomfort. There are no lasers, no chemicals, no acids, so it’s viable for all skin types and tones. Even women who are pregnant or nursing can benefit from dermaplaning. Similarly, those clients with sensitive skin may also derive aesthetic improvement through dermaplaning.
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
Conducted by Dr. Jason Emer of Beverly Hills and our highly skilled aestheticians, nurses and physician assistants, dermaplaning treatments allow for greater penetration of skin care products and deeper penetration of lasers and radiofrequency energy devices.
Dermaplaning regularly and prior to energy-based procedures or peels can yield rapid stimulation of collagen production through cell turnover, thus improving fine lines and wrinkles, acne and acne scarring, pigmentation, and textural issues.
Dermaplaning also aids in creating a flawless canvas for makeup to be applied evenly and flawlessly; for this reason, some of our patients schedule their dermaplaning procedures on a bi-monthly or even weekly basis.
Dermaplaning is ideal in preparation for or as a follow-up to our West Hollywood laser treatments—particularly those that leave the skin with dead cells to exfoliate, such as Clear + Brilliant, Venus Viva, Intensif, and Fractora—as a means of removing dead skin and abnormal pigmentation and exfoliating the skin for new collagen production.
To achieve optimal skin exfoliation and aesthetic improvement, dermaplaning is combined with microneedling, enzyme peels or light chemical peels.
What can I expect from my recovery?
As mentioned earlier, dermaplaning is gentle and non-invasive with typically very little downtime or discomfort. Once your treatment is over, our practitioners will apply a soothing moisturizer and sunscreen, and after that, you can return to your normal activities for the rest of the day.
