Reveal Your True Self

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skincare procedure that involves using a sterile blade to gently exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells and fine facial hair. This process reveals a smoother, more radiant complexion by removing dull skin and promoting cellular turnover. Dermaplaning can enhance the effectiveness of skin care products, improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and create a flawless canvas for makeup application. It is suitable for most skin types and is known for its immediate results and minimal downtime.

Gentle Rejuvenation

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

Bright, smooth, luminous skin offers a youthful appearance and an optimal canvas for flawless makeup application. By removing dull, dead cells from your skin’s surface, you can reveal fresh new skin beneath and stimulate collagen production for ongoing improvements. Dermaplaning offers several benefits to help you achieve your ideal complexion:

Exfoliation– The procedure effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells, revealing a smoother and brighter complexion.

Enhanced Product Absorption– Without dead skin creating a barrier between topical treatments and healthy cells, skincare products can penetrate more deeply, increasing their effectiveness.

Fine Hair Removal– Dermaplaning eliminates vellus facial hair (peach fuzz), leading to smoother makeup application and a more even texture.

Reduced Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles– By promoting cellular turnover, dermaplaning can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Instant Results– The immediate improvement in skin texture and radiance makes dermaplaning appealing for special occasions.

Flawless Makeup Application– A smoother canvas allows for more flawless makeup application and prevents makeup from clinging to facial hair.

Minimize Pores– Regular dermaplaning may help reduce the appearance of enlarged pores over time.

Safe for Most Skin Types–: Dermaplaning is typically safe for various skin types, though caution is advised for those with active acne.

Completely Non-Invasive– It's a non-surgical and non-chemical procedure, making it a gentle option for skin rejuvenation.

Minimal Downtime– In most cases, there is little to no downtime after dermaplaning, allowing individuals to resume their regular activities.

Improved Skin Texture– The removal of dead skin cells and fine hair can result in smoother and softer skin.

Even Skin Tone– Dermaplaning can help improve the appearance of uneven skin tone and texture.

Relax & Refresh

Your Dermaplaning Procedure

When you arrive on the day of your appointment for dermaplaning San Diego aesthetic specialists at Sadrian Plastic Surgery will cleanse your skin and apply an alcohol-based solution to ensure the treatment area is free of bacteria. Then, they will use a sterile blade to exfoliate dead skin cells from the outermost layer of your skin, gliding it at a 45° angle along your forehead, cheeks, chin, and jawline. Once the exfoliation is complete, they will apply a soothing moisturizer or serum. The entire process takes just a few minutes to complete, and you will be able to return to your day as soon as your treatment is complete.

Your New Go-To

Dermaplaning Results

Your skin will be noticeably smoother and more radiant immediately after your procedure. However, your results will continue to improve as the effects of cellular regeneration take place. You can build on your results indefinitely with ongoing treatments spaced at least 3-4 weeks apart.

Nourish Your Skin

Dermaplaning Recovery and Aftercare

You may notice some mild redness or sensitivity for a day or two after dermaplaning. However, these potential side effects are minor and will subside quickly. Applying moisturizing products during your recovery can minimize any inflammation that may be present, as well as support your skin’s rejuvenation for optimal results.
