Dermaplaning is a revolutionary skin treatment that takes exfoliation to the next level. This non-invasive cosmetic procedure helps, brightens your complexion, leads to better product penetration, and provides a smoother canvas for makeup application. There’s no downtime, and you’ll see near-immediate results.

At The Lumen Center, our highly skilled and educated aesthetic technicians work under the guidance of Dr. Andrew Kwak. We perform every treatment with extreme care for maximum results.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique that lightly shaves away the top layers of your skin. It’s a great solution to remove fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) and correct dullness in your facial skin. In doing so, dead and damaged cells are removed, revealing newer ones. This treatment can improve the look and quality of the skin and results are noticeable quickly.

The benefits of dermaplaning are many, such as:

What Does Dermaplaning Treat?

Dermaplaning addresses many skin concerns, including:

Combining Dermaplaning with Other Facial Skin Treatments

Dermaplaning can be effective on its own or combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments. For those seeking optimal results, dermaplaning can be combined with other treatments, such as facials or chemical peels. These treatments work synergistically, resulting in an even more radiant and smooth complexion.

Dermaplaning vs. At-Home Dermaplaning

While it might be tempting to try dermaplaning at home, leaving this treatment to the professionals is crucial. Licensed aestheticians have the necessary training and expertise to perform dermaplaning safely and effectively. They use professional-grade tools and techniques to ensure optimal results and minimize the risk of injury or irritation. A trained aesthetician ensures the scalpel is used at the correct angle and pressure to remove dead skin cells and hair safely and effectively. At-home dermaplaning runs the risk of bacterial contamination and potential skin damage, leading to breakouts and other skin issues.

Skincare Products with Dermaplaning

Maintaining a good skincare regimen is crucial when it comes to dermaplaning. This procedure exfoliates the top layer of your skin, making it more receptive to skincare products. Our professional, licensed aesthetician can guide you on the best products to use after dermaplaning to nourish and protect your newly exfoliated skin. She can recommend products tailored to your specific skin type and concerns, ensuring you maximize the treatment’s benefits. This personalized approach ensures your skincare routine complements your dermaplaning treatments, helping to maintain your glowing complexion and extend the results of your treatment.

Dermaplaning Frequently Asked Questions

Dermaplaning uses a small surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layer of skin and fine vellus facial hairs. By removing the dead cells in this outer layer, dermaplaning opens up the skin, stimulating collagen production and the growth of new and healthy skin cells. A non-comedogenic oil (that won’t clog your pores) is used to help guide the blade and hydrate the skin.

It’s a myth that dermaplaning does not cause hair to grow back thicker or darker. However, it does only temporarily remove facial hair and does not fully remove hair from its follicle.

Results are immediate! Your skin will feel smoother, look brighter, and you’ll notice better product penetration.

Since dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation technique, it rarely causes side effects. Occasionally, some redness or irritation may occur, but these side effects are usually mild and disappear quickly.

Dermaplaning is generally considered a painless procedure when performed by a professional. Despite the use of a blade, the treatment involves light, feathery strokes that don’t cause discomfort. In fact, many patients find the treatment soothing. However, like any skin treatment, dermaplaning can potentially cause irritation. It’s important to note that everyone’s pain threshold and skin sensitivity are different, so individual experiences may vary.

Some patients get this treatment before a big event, while others incorporate it into their beauty regimen every 4-8 weeks.
