Exfoliating your skin is the quickest way to take years off your face and enjoy a more youthful and fresher-looking face. While many dermatological treatments boast of giving you that younger look you’re seeking, many of them rely on chemicals or other abrasive treatments that discerning clients are happy to avoid. Here at The Institute of Aesthetic Surgery in Celebration, FL, we’re offering Dermaplaning in Orlando for clients who want a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance with no chemicals or harsh treatments.
Dermaplaning is one of the least invasive skin rejuvenation treatments available at plastic surgery centers and removes the outer layer of skin to eliminate dead and dry skin cells and fine hairs. It’s an ideal choice for anyone with healthy skin and eliminates the need for a recovery period or time off work. Clients who choose Dermaplaning in Orlando report long-term benefits from this renewable outpatient treatment that enhances your features and gives you a natural, younger look.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is rising fast as one of the newest and hottest cosmetic treatments available at your dermatologist’s office, but it’s also one of the simplest and is the closest shave you’ll ever have. Dermaplaning in Orlando uses a scalpel in the hands of a trusted skin specialist to shave the outer layer of your skin and expose new, healthy skin cells. Your dermatologist will pull the skin of your face taut, ensuring it’s as smooth as possible before using the scalpel to gently feather away the outer skin layer without cutting or scraping the deeper layers.
Dermaplaning resurfaces the skin by removing a buildup of dead skin cells that contributes to a rougher, more weathered appearance and replaces them with the fresh skin cells under the surface. For clients who want to remove the thin hairs known as “peach fuzz”, the scalpel will cut them away down to the root and keep your face smooth. Dermaplaning is often paired with other skin rejuvenation treatments, but independently clients will immediately see a younger appearance.
Are You a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning in Orlando?
If you’re considering Dermaplaning in Orlando, you’ve taken the first step toward a more youthful appearance. Most interested clients are a good fit for the treatment if they meet a few factors.
- Looking to reduce the effects of aging and remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz
- Have moderate signs of aging including dry, weathered skin and minor wrinkles
- Looking for a treatment with no downtime or recovery period
- Want to avoid chemicals or abrasive treatments
- Skin is healthy and free of infections
- Prefer a gentle, renewable treatment over a surgical procedure
- Have a busy schedule and want a quick treatment ideal for a lunch break
If this describes you, the first step is to schedule a consultation with one of our certified dermatologists to discuss a treatment plan.
What to Expect Before Dermaplaning
After scheduling your Dermaplaning consultation, your certified dermatologist will examine your skin to determine if you are a good fit for the treatment. If your skin has moderate signs of aging or dry skin but is healthy and free of infections, your dermatologist will go over the details of the treatment and what to expect before scheduling your appointment. Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for those who want moderate but instant results and are looking for a renewable and non-invasive process.
As Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment with no medical complications and no special preparations are needed by the client before their appointment. We recommend getting a good night’s sleep, washing your face before your appointment, and ensuring your face is free of any foreign substances like makeup or moisturizer.
Your Dermaplaning Appointment – What to Expect
Schedule and Timing
Dermaplaning is one of the most time-efficient treatments we offer, and many of our clients schedule their appointment over their lunch hour. A typical Dermaplaning appointment takes fifteen to twenty minutes, with the client able to leave immediately and resume normal activities with no downtime or recovery. Most of our clients return to work the same day after their treatment.
Your Dermaplaning Treatment
Unlike many dermatological treatments, Dermaplaning doesn’t use any topical anesthetics to numb your face because the treatment is gentle enough that most clients don’t experience any discomfort. Your dermatologist will pull the skin on your face taut and use a scalpel or a specialized instrument called a dermatome to scrape away the uppermost layer of skin. This removes the dead skin cells and peach fuzz, exposing the new skin cells and exfoliating the skin thanks to the increased air exposure.
If you have sensitive skin and experience minor discomfort during the treatment, ask your dermatologist for a mild topical anesthetic and the treatment can continue only minutes later.
After Your Dermaplaning Treatment
The only immediate side effect of your Dermaplaning in Orlando treatment might be some mild redness that makes you look flushed, but your face will be pain-free and have a younger appearance immediately. Your skin and pores will be more absorbent thanks to the treatment, so this is a great opportunity to partner the treatment with at-home treatments to prolong the benefits. Formulas including vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and retinol are highly recommended for their rejuvenating elements.
Dermaplaning is a short-term treatment with immediate benefits, and the brief nature of the treatment makes it a favorite for regular appointments. Our clients commonly schedule monthly treatments to renew the effects and keep their new, youthful appearance looking natural. Unlike harsh chemical-based treatments that can damage the skin with repeated use, there are no negative effects of repeated Dermaplaning treatments as all it does is speed up the skin’s natural renewal process.
Why Dermaplaning in Orlando?
Dermaplaning is a simple treatment that uses only a scalpel to shave away the top layer of skin, but it’s a treatment that should be performed under the supervision of a skilled dermatologist. We use laser-cut scalpels that provide a finer cut than any model commercially available, and our instruments allow for a better look at the skin than any at-home mirror. A visit to our offices provides a holistic examination of your skin and a thorough treatment that ensures the best results.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dermaplaning
1. What Conditions Are Best Relieved With Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an ideal short-term solution for rough or dry skin, minor wrinkles and folds, acne scars, and superficial pigment issues.
2. How Does Dermaplaning Affect the Hair It Removes?
Many of our clients worry that shaving off the peach fuzz during Dermaplaning will cause it to grow back faster and thicker. This is not a risk, as only hormone changes will affect hair growth. Dermaplaning cuts hair far deeper than standard shaving, so it’ll be longer before you notice those fine hairs returning.
3. How Should I Care for My Skin Before and After Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is popular with busy clients because it requires minimal prep and aftercare. Before your treatment, we recommend washing your face thoroughly and removing any makeup to ensure nothing interferes with the treatment. After your treatment, you won’t need any follow-up treatments; but infused lotions can boost the effects of Dermaplaning and sun protection is recommended.
4. How Does Dermaplaning Compare to Microdermabrasion?
Both treatments are outpatient treatments designed to renew the skin and increase exfoliation, and both are popular alternatives to chemical and surgical treatments. Where Dermaplaning wins its fans is with the brevity of the treatment and the lack of any topical anesthetic needed. It also covers a larger area than Microdermabrasion.
5. How Long Do the Effects of Dermaplaning Last?
Most clients choose to have Dermaplaning done every four to six weeks. This is because each treatment removes approximately twenty-one days of dead skin cells, and we recommend giving your skin time to fully recover before another treatment.
6. What Areas of the Face Does Dermaplaning Treat?
Dermaplaning is most effective on smooth, flat areas of the face and has the most dramatic effect on the cheeks and brow. It is not recommended for shaping the eyebrows or lips and our specialists can advise you of non-surgical options to boost skin health in those areas.
Long-Term Effects of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is not intended to be a long-term solution for skin issues, and clients with more extensive concerns, like deep wrinkles or discoloration, will be informed of ideal options for long-term treatments. However, with regular use, you will see important long-term benefits to dermaplaning.
While Dermaplaning’s initial effects wear off after a month as the surface skin cells age, with proper skincare the treatment can be part of a long-term, healthy skin regimen. The time when your skin is newly exfoliated and the exposed skin is highly absorbent is an excellent opportunity to boost your skin health with serums designed to promote long-term health.
Part of Hair Removal
Renewing your skin with Dermaplaning is only one part of healthy skin care, and our certified dermatologists can point you in the right direction to ensure your skin gets the full benefits from your visit. If you have darker hairs on your face and you want to get rid of them permanently, pairing Dermaplaning with laser hair removal is an ideal way to get rid of both hair types in two visits.
One long-term side effect of Dermaplaning that makes this treatment a popular choice is improved circulation in your pores. Regular exfoliation of your skin will keep your pores clean and prevent buildup of dead skin cells and pollutants. This is one of the best ways to prevent oily skin and breakouts without buying topical creams. A Dermaplaning treatment accomplishes the same goal as an over-the-counter exfoliating pore mask without the chemicals common to those products.
