What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure in San Antonio. One of our specialists will use a sterile blade on the target treatment area to gently buff away the top, dead-most layer of your facial skin. Along with dead skin cells, the dermaplaning tool will remove dirt, oil, debris, and even hair from your face, called vellus hair, leaving it clean, radiant, and smooth. This treatment is designed to exfoliate and gently resurface your facial skin in one hour or less.
What Skin Concerns Can Dermaplaning Treat?
Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment option when you have any of the following skin concerns or conditions:
- Dead skin cells and skin congestion
- Unwanted coarse or fine facial hair
- Uneven skin texture
- Scars, including acne scars
- Pitted skin
- Actinic Keratosis
- Superficial skin concerns and irregularities
Dermaplaning is a low-risk cosmetic treatment that is suitable for all skin types, skin shades, and skin tones. However, it is not suitable for some patients with certain serious skin conditions, such as psoriasis, cold sores, skin growths, burns, and rashes.
Your Dermaplaning Experience at Our Clinic
Our medical specialist will first cleanse your skin. We recommend that you arrive at your appointment free of any makeup, lotions, or skincare products. This procedure will not require anesthesia or a topical anesthetic. The dermaplaning procedure in San Antonio will take an hour or less, during which your skin will be gently resurfaced with the dermaplaning tool. You will not feel any significant pain, and you will be cleared to leave the clinic immediately following your treatment. You will notice clean, hair-free, and radiant-looking skin from the moment you leave our clinic.
Downtime and Recovery
One of the advantages of dermaplaning is that it requires almost no recovery time. You will not experience any significant side effects beyond potential redness that will subside within a few hours. You will be able to go back to your daily activities immediately following treatment. If you are someone who is constantly active, we recommend waiting 24 hours before working out to avoid clogging the opened pores. You also want to avoid any physical exfoliants for about 24-48 hours following your treatment. We recommend that if you are obtaining dermaplaning in anticipation of a significant event, you should obtain your treatment at least one week before the big day.
Regular Dermaplaning Treatments
Dermaplaning aims to remove dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and hair from the surface of the skin. Of course, the resulting look of healthy, radiant, and clear skin is temporary. Over time, dead skin cells, congestion, dirt, and oils will settle on the surface of your skin. To keep your results looking fresh, we recommend regular treatments on a once-a-month basis.
