Dermaplaning Can Gently and Effectively Improve Your Skin
Dermaplaning is one of the easiest and least intensive treatments for achieving smoother skin texture and a renewed glow. Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne offer this special exfoliation treatment at Northshore Plastic Surgery in New Orleans, LA. This procedure can help patients achieve smoother skin, remove fine facial hairs, and address minor skin blemishes. Dermaplaning is commonly paired with light chemical peels, microdermabrasion, intense pulse light therapy (IPL), or Laser Genesis™ to help enhance its effectiveness.
Dermaplaning uses specialized blades designed to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hairs (“peach fuzz”) known for trapping dirt and oil and causing acne and a lackluster appearance. The esthetician will use a handheld tool with a surgical-quality blade to administer this treatment along your face. As the skin is held taut, the blade is gently stroked across the skin at a 45 degree angle to remove the upper, damaged skin cells. Depending on your goals, this procedure can be performed as a standalone treatment, or as a preliminary procedure prior to a chemical peel or laser therapy to create a smoother surface.
A member of our team will perform a thorough examination of your skin to help determine which treatment will revitalize your skin. Patients with normal to dry skin are usually able to achieve the best results. For patients with acne or excess oil production, one of our other highly effective skincare treatments may be better suited for you.
What to Expect
During your initial treatment, the esthetician will have you lie comfortably on one of our treatment tables where she will thoroughly prepare your skin with a gentle cleanser. Using a special sterilized dermaplaning blade, she will gently stroke the blade across your face to remove dead skin cells, dirt, and facial hair, while also unclogging your pores. The overall treatment generally takes 30 minutes and will provide immediate results. After treatment, we will either proceed with additional facial skin treatments as discussed during your consultation, or you can return back to your normal activities.
Dermaplane provides immediate results with zero recovery time.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment when performed by a well-trained esthetician. You may experience some minor skin irritation and peeling for the first few days, but typically no side effects that your routine skincare regimen cannot eliminate. You do not have to worry about hair growing back thicker, darker, or courser when undergoing this treatment. To maintain your results, we recommend follow-up treatments every three to four weeks to allow your skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle.
