Get softer, smoother skin with a Dermaplaning treatment at Volare Esthetics Med Spa & Laser Center!
Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face. Dermaplaning allows products to penetrate more effectively resulting in vibrant skin. A great stand-alone treatment or an enhancement to facials, peels and other skincare services. Dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types and no downtime experienced.
How It Works.
The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven.
First, you’ll lie down on our chair in a clean, comfortable room. Sedation options may be available, and these often include a numbing spray or local anesthesia combined with an oral sedative or rarely general anesthesia.
After you’re relaxed, we will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, gently exfoliating the skin.
After the treatment is finished, we will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face.
