Dermaplaning Facial in Austin

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation procedure that uses a special surgical blade to gently slough away the top layer of the epidermis. After the removal of dead skin cells, your skin is left smooth and vibrant. 
A dermaplaning facial is ideal for anyone interested in removal of vellus facial hair (peach fuzz), which can trap excess dirt and oil. Dermaplaning is an alternative for patients not suited for microdermabrasion.

What to Expect During Your Treatment

Dermaplaning facials are safe for most patients with little risk of side effects. We work to make patients very comfortable during the procedure and it shouldn’t hurt. Your Aesthetician will only remove the very top layer of unwanted hair and dead skin cells. 

The scraping process should last approximately 20-30 minutes. 

After Your Dermaplaning Facial 

This treatment doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, so it’s easy and convenient. After a dermaplaning facial, your skin may be a bit sensitive, so you should avoid direct sunlight. You may want to follow a dermaplaning facial with a chemical peel, as the process leaves the skin more receptive to chemical penetration. 

Deciding if it is Right for You

You can speak with your Skin Care Provider to determine if this treatment should be a part of your skin care regimen. They can also help you with the frequency and what other treatments can supplement it to give you optimal results.
