Dermaplaning

dermaplaning patient

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation technique used to remove old, dead cells and reveal smoother, healthier skin. Board-certified physician Dr. Manu B Aggarwal offers dermaplaning treatments for patients seeking to cleanse, rejuvenate and enhance their skin tone and texture at our Lima location. For patients in Lima and surrounding communities in Ohio, the Vein Care Center offers an array of skin treatments to help you correct imperfections and achieve a brighter, more radiant complexion.

Exfoliating your skin is vital for maintaining a healthy and refreshed appearance. Bacteria, dirt and oils left behind on the skin can clog the pores and lead to blemishes, inflammation and a dull, dry or worn-looking profile. Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method designed to address pore blockages and other skin concerns by clearing away old and damaged cells and exposing healthier skin underneath. Dermaplaning also helps to remove vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, the fine, downy hair that grows on the face and neck. At the Vein Care Center, Dr. Aggarwal offers dermaplaning treatments to help patients cleanse their face of impurities and achieve softer, smoother skin.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, chemical-free exfoliation technique used to clear the skin of old and damaged cells. It is a gentle, non-abrasive treatment performed to promote the growth of healthier cells and combat skin concerns caused by the build-up of bacteria and dirt. This procedure can help to reduce acne scarring and textural marks, while re-stimulating cell regeneration, which slows down with age. Since the skin is constantly exposed to irritants and harmful toxins, dermaplaning is often used to cleanse the skin and protect it from environmental damage. This treatment is also performed to remove peach fuzz – the short hairs on your face – which can trap dirt and oils and further irritate the skin, or affect the application of makeup on the face. With no downtime and minimal side effects, dermaplaning is a quick and convenient way to keep the skin looking fresh and healthy.

What Concerns Can Dermaplaning Treat?

Dermaplaning is most often used to cleanse and rejuvenate the skin. It can also help to address minor skin imperfections, such as:

How is Dermaplaning Performed?

Dermaplaning takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and involves minimal discomfort. You may experience a mild tingling sensation, though most patients find this to be quite tolerable. During the procedure, a sterile surgical-grade blade is passed gently across the skin at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the top layer. This process gradually removes dead cells, scar tissue and other debris to purify and refine the skin. As hairs and old cells are safely scraped away, a smoother and healthier layer is revealed. After your treatment, a soothing substance will be applied to calm the skin and alleviate any discomfort. There is no downtime required after the procedure, so you can resume your daily routine immediately.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Since dermaplaning is natural and chemical-free, it can be performed on men and women of nearly all skin tones and types. For patients seeking to improve the quality of their skin, this procedure boasts a myriad of benefits, including:

  • Stimulates cell turnover and regeneration
  • Reduces blemishes and acne scarring
  • Improves application of makeup
  • Provides deeper penetration of products
  • Promotes smoother, softer and healthier skin
  • Eliminates facial hair to prevent clogged pores

Dermaplaning vs. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is an exfoliating treatment designed to cleanse and resurface the skin. Both techniques aim to expose healthier and smoother skin by eliminating dead and dry cells from the surface. However, while dermaplaning uses a blade, microdermabrasion uses micro-crystals to effectively slough off the outer layer. This method helps to stimulate elastin and collagen production, which are essential components of radiant and youthful skin, but may be too irritating for those with sensitive skin compared to the more gentle dermaplaning. Dermaplaning usually requires regular sessions to maintain positive results, while some patients find that maintenance sessions for microdermabrasion can be less frequent, once the desired look has been achieved.

At the Vein Care Center, we offer both microdermabrasion and dermaplaning treatments. The most suitable option will depend on various factors, including your skin type, current condition and cosmetic goals. In your consultation, Dr. Aggarwal will examine your needs and concerns to determine which procedure will be most appropriate for you.
