Dermaplaning is a process that removes dead skin cells, facial hair, and dirt from the topmost layer of your skin. With just one treatment at Nicole Norris MD Medical Spa in Peru, IL, you can achieve more youthful, radiant-looking skin. This deep exfoliation treatment can be performed several times a year to ensure that you are always looking and feeling your best.

How Often Can You Get Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning involves using a small scalpel to remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and dirt on the surface of your skin. You can enjoy this treatment every three to four weeks to maintain a smooth, radiant appearance. We recommend that you allow your skin to recover and resurface before getting another treatment to ensure the best results.

How often you’ll need to get the treatment can also be determined by the rate of your facial hair regrowth. For this reason, we typically recommend that you get monthly treatment sessions to keep your face smooth and hair-free.

The Benefits of Getting Regular Treatments

It Improves the Absorption of Skin Care Products

If you love using serums and other skin care products, you can get even better results from your skin care regimen with the help of our exfoliating treatment. Because the treatment removes the topmost layer of your skin, where dirt and dead skin cells are trapped, you can expect your topical products and serums to become more effective and easily absorbed by your skin.

It Helps Your Makeup Look Smoother

If you love wearing makeup, then you already know the importance of maintaining smooth, blemish-free skin when it comes to achieving the perfect look. By getting regular exfoliating treatments, you can get a natural primer for your makeup. The treatment will keep your skin smooth and free of dirt, allowing your makeup to be applied smoothly and evenly.

It Helps Prevent Skin Aging

Dermaplaning can make your skin smoother by getting rid of facial hair and dirt on your skin. But did you know that the resurfacing and exfoliating component of the treatment can also help minimize and delay the signs of aging?

During your treatment, the exfoliation process triggers your body’s healing response, causing a boost in collagen production. Collagen is an essential protein that helps maintain the firmness of your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It Can Prevent Acne

Clogged pores can cause acne breakouts. By getting a regular exfoliating treatment that gets rid of the dirt and impurities on the topmost layer of your skin, you can prevent your pores from getting clogged. If you have acne breakouts, getting regular exfoliating treatments can help minimize your blemishes and improve your overall skin condition. Additionally, the treatment can improve the absorption of acne medication, helping your skin recover faster.

It Keeps Your Skin Hair-Free

Having excess facial hair can be bothersome, and it can also make you more prone to acne breakouts. If you are not open to the idea of getting laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair, getting an exfoliating treatment that removes the topmost layer of your skin can be a good alternative for you.

What To Expect When Getting This Treatment

How Long Does a Treatment Session Last?

Dermaplaning is a highly-convenient, hassle-free treatment. We can complete your treatment sessions in as little as 20 minutes. There’s no need to block your whole day or worry about an extended recovery period. You can resume your normal daily activities right away after getting the treatment.

Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?

While the treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t cause extended downtime, we recommend that you get dermaplaning treatments before scheduling chemical peels and other facial treatments. By getting an exfoliating treatment before a chemical peel or facial, you can expect better results. The treatment exfoliates the topmost layer of your skin and allows it to better absorb cleansing and peeling treatments.

Is It Gentle and Non-Invasive?

Unlike laser skin resurfacing and more aggressive rejuvenating treatments, dermaplaning is very gentle. This treatment is a controlled form of exfoliation that doesn’t use chemicals or abrasive devices. You can expect precise, non-invasive treatments that only remove the topmost layer of the skin with dirt, dead skin cells, and excess facial hair.

Good Candidates for This Treatment

If you are looking for a cosmetic treatment that doesn’t involve harsh chemicals, lasers, and other energy-based devices, then you may benefit from dermaplaning treatments. We also recommend this treatment to those who have more mature skin, which tends to have a greater buildup of dead skin cells. Women who are pregnant may also benefit from this gentle exfoliating treatment.

Nevertheless, if you use skincare products or incorporate chemical peels into your beauty and anti-aging routine, getting an exfoliating treatment may also be perfect for you. This exfoliating treatment can make your serums and topical products so much more effective.

Enjoy Smoother, Blemish-Free Skin

When done by skincare professionals, dermaplaning is an extremely safe treatment that offers amazing benefits. If you’re looking for a cosmetic treatment that only requires several treatments per year, then you’ll love adding a dermaplaning treatment to your beauty regimen.
