Dermaplaning in Florence, KY

Experience Smoother, Brighter Skin With Dermaplaning.

Your skin is constantly exposed to daily stressors, like harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can lead to the top layer of your skin appearing dull and aged. If you feel like your skin is on the lackluster side and you’d like a simple, yet effective, way to brighten it up, then dermaplaning may be just the ticket. Dermaplaning is a technique involving a precision blade (like a scalpel) to smooth the skin’s surface and bring about a more youthful, radiant glow. It’s also very effective for removing vellus hair, more commonly known as “peach fuzz.”

How does dermaplaning work?

It’s really quite simple. A special sterile blade is moved back and forth over the desired area by a trained professional, effectively scraping off the top layers of dead skin and fuzz to reveal fresher skin just underneath. The basic concept is essentially the same as shaving, but dermaplaning takes it a step further. Far more dead skin cells and fine hair are removed than with traditional shaving alone.

Is dermaplaning right for me?

Dermaplaning is considered a low-risk procedure, so it’s typically a great option for people with generally healthy skin who want a boost in their complexion. It’s usually not a good option, however, for people experiencing inflammatory skin conditions, such as:

  • Acne
  • Rosacea
  • Eczema
  • Sunburn
  • Psoriasis

Are there any side effects with dermaplaning? 

Most people experience little to no irritation from a dermaplaning session. There are a handful of potential short-term side effects that may include:

  • Mild redness and swelling from the scraping motion
  • Slight soreness
  • A tingling sensation for one to two days afterwards

If experienced, these effects are typically mild in nature and go away quickly.

What results can I expect from dermaplaning?

You may notice your skin appearing brighter immediately after the dermaplaning session, but it usually takes a few days to experience full results. You’ll be able to see the benefits more clearly in the days afterward as any redness subsides. Dermaplaning claims to clear away up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin. Your results will fade in about three weeks to a month, at which time you may elect another session.

A common misconception is that the hair removed will grow back thicker and darker. While there are very rare occasions of that happening for some people, the vast majority don’t have this experience.
