What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a procedure designed to remove the upper layers of the skin. These are the layers of skin that may be damaged from age, sun exposure, or other skin issues. With a specialized dermaplane instrument, the old skin cells and fine hairs on the face are removed and a more luminous complexion is revealed.
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
The cost of your dermaplane facial will vary depending on your specific needs and goals. At ReNova Plastic Surgery & Medical Spa, we price our procedures on an individual basis and will calculate your unique pricing at the time of your consultation. In an effort to ensure our procedures are financially accessible, we’re proud to accept a wide range of payment options, including financing through Dollar Bank and CareCredit®.
Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
If you are struggling with fine lines, wrinkles, uneven skin tone or damaged skin, you could be an excellent candidate for dermaplaning. This procedure is safe and effective for a wide range of individuals. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this or any procedure is to schedule a consultation.
How is Dermaplaning Performed?
Your dermaplaning procedure will take place in the comfort of our office, where you’ll be comfortably reclined for the duration of your procedure. Before the dermaplaning begins, you may elect to have a topical or local anesthetic to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Our team will then use the specially calibrated dermaplaning device to exfoliate the skin. Most procedures are completed within 30 minutes, so they’re convenient to fit into your day.
What is Recovery Like After Dermaplaning?
After your dermaplaning procedure, you’ll need to properly protect your skin from the sun. Your face may be red and swollen. Any tingling or pain can be managed by medication. Our team will discuss the specifics of your recovery during your consultation.
How Long Will My Dermaplaning Results Last?
Due to the fact that dermaplaning is designed to remove the upper layers of the skin, you can expect your results to appear quickly following your appointment. However, the skin will continue to age and experience wear and tear. As a result, you may decide to schedule maintenance appointments after several weeks to continue looking and feeling your best.
