Many people in Charlotte want to improve the look and feel of their skin. Dermaplaning is one exceptional skincare technique that has provided many celebrities, models, and people in Charlotte with glowing, beautiful skin. A dermaplaning treatment can provide skincare benefits for men and women of a wide variety of skin tones, removing dead skin and small, fine hairs. At Queen City Plastic Surgery, dermaplaning can be one part of an effective skin renewal and rejuvenation process. You can receive dermaplaning alone or combined with another service. Our skilled licensed esthetician will analyze your skin to develop a customized plan that helps you achieve the rejuvenated, glowing look you desire.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning is a skincare procedure that uses a sharp tool, specially designed for dermaplaning treatment, to remove fine hairs on the face. This surgical tool is designed for use on clean, dry skin, particularly on the chin, nose, forehead, cheeks, and neck. It is a non-invasive, painless procedure designed to provide gentle, effective improvement to skin clarity and appearance. Our skilled esthetician uses the tool to scrape the surface of your skin with light motions to exfoliate dead skin cells and remove excess hair, clearing your skin of their dulling effects. There are many significant benefits to dermaplaning as part of comprehensive skin care and rejuvenation program.  It can be done in conjunction with other services such as a facial or on its own.  It can also be done in alternate months with microneedling to increase the effectiveness of both treatments.

What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has a number of benefits. First, it removes excess and unwanted hair. This is a specialized treatment that is different from simply shaving typical facial hair. The gentle scraping tool used during a dermaplaning treatment removes dead skin cells as well, a significant contributor to clogged pores and breakouts. Skin without excess hair and dead skin is cleaner. Because your pores are less likely to be clogged and there are no small hairs to trap products, dermaplaning can also help your skincare serums and creams to penetrate the skin more deeply and effectively.

While dermaplaning may reduce the risk and likelihood of breakouts it is not a treatment for currently active acne breakouts.  Rather it can help to prevent future breakouts, especially when they are caused by clogged pores and oil production lingering on the face.

Dermaplaning can also produce a rejuvenating effect. By removing dead skin and encouraging cell turnover through exfoliation, the appearance of acne scars, points of hyperpigmentation, and fine lines can be minimized. Many people who receive dermaplaning in Charlotte remark on the smooth, silky feeling of their skin after the procedure and the glowing appearance they enjoy. The procedure promotes a smooth, improved skin texture that also allows your makeup to glide on more smoothly and produces a more natural appearance.

Dermaplaning is a temporary, non-invasive procedure that improves the appearance and texture of the skin. Each procedure removes approximately three weeks of hair growth and dead skin, so regular follow-up appointments with our esthetician can help to maintain the desired effects.

Who Can Dermaplaning Benefit?

Dermaplaning has shown positive results for women and men of all ages across skin types. As a non-invasive treatment, this procedure is safe and effective for people with sensitive skin. While it is not recommended for people with currently active and inflamed acne breakouts, it is generally safe and effective once the breakouts are resolved. It can provide exceptional exfoliating effects even for people who have negative reactions to physical and chemical exfoliants or who are advised to avoid certain chemical treatments, such as pregnant women.

Unlike some other exfoliation methods, dermaplaning is just as effective for darker skin tones as it is for lighter skin tones. It does not cause micro-abrasions on the skin like a scrub. In fact, dermaplaning can be a particularly effective exfoliation method for deeper skin tones, improving the clarity and brilliance of the skin.

Is There Downtime After Dermaplaning?

You can easily have a dermaplaning procedure in the middle of your day and return to your daily life after. This procedure is non-invasive and generally pain-free, although you should wear sunscreen after dermaplaning to protect your skin from excessive exposure. While dermaplaning can improve the look and feel of makeup, it is best to wait until the next day to apply complexion products like foundation and concealer in order to give your skin space to breathe. Your esthetician will make specific skincare suggestions to you for the best results.
