What Is a Dermaplane Facial?

Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation technique that uses a surgical scalpel to remove the outer layer of the skin. This process effectively removes dead skin cells, fine hairs, and impurities, leaving the skin looking smoother and more radiant. A dermaplaning facial can enhance the skin's texture and tone, making it popular among those looking for a fresh and rejuvenated complexion.

During a dermaplaning session, your Elite professional will carefully glide the scalpel across your skin, delicately removing the top layer of dead skin cells and fine hairs. Many people love dermaplaning because it is non-invasive and immediately improves the skin's appearance. Simply put, dermaplaning facials offer a safe and effective way to achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion without downtime or discomfort.

Benefits of Dermaplane Facials

One of the most significant benefits of a dermaplaning facial is that it’s excellent for all skin types, even sensitive skin. Unlike some other exfoliation methods, dermaplaning is gentle and doesn't use harsh chemicals or abrasive particles, making it a top choice for people with delicate or easily irritated skin. Here are some of the other reasons why you’ll love our dermaplane facial:

  • Removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz, revealing smoother and brighter skin
  • Enhances the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing deeper penetration
  • Helps makeup go on more smoothly and evenly
  • Can improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines
  • Provides a gentle exfoliation option for those with sensitive skin
  • Promotes smoother makeup application

Ideal Candidates for Dermaplane Facials

Dermaplaning is best for patients with dull or dry skin, fine lines, and light acne scars. It's also beneficial for those with unwanted facial hair or anyone looking for a gentle exfoliation method. However, it is essential to note that dermaplaning may not be suitable for the following individuals:

  • Active acne
  • Sunburned skin
  • Certain skin conditions, such as eczema or psoriasis

The Dermaplaning Procedure

Pre-Treatment Consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery

Before booking your dermaplaning facial appointment, you’ll attend a consultation with a skincare professional at Elite Plastic Surgery. During this meeting:

  • We will examine your skin type and condition to determine whether you’re a good candidate
  • We’ll also discuss your skin sensitivities and allergies
  • You’ll receive pre-and-post-treatment advice to make sure you get the most from your dermaplaning facial

Step-by-Step Process

The dermaplaning procedure is precise and meticulous, typically including the following steps:

  • Cleansing: Your skin is thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, and dirt.
  • Dermaplaning: Using a sterile, surgical-grade scalpel, your Elite provider gently scrapes the surface of your skin at a 45-degree angle to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair.
  • Soothing: After dermaplaning, a calming agent is applied to soothe the skin.
  • Hydration: A moisturizer, often accompanied by sunscreen, hydrates and protects newly exposed skin cells.

Post-Treatment Care

We recommend the following post-treatment care to ensure the best results:

  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin from UV damage
  • Follow a gentle skincare routine with products recommended by your skincare professional at Elite
  • Avoid direct sun exposure, harsh exfoliants, and alcohol-based toners for a specified period to prevent irritation
