When clients visit Skin MB in Nashville, they are often looking for new and exciting ways to improve the appearance, quality, and health of their skin. There are so many skin care treatments that can benefit the skin: facials, peels, laser skin treatments, and even dermal fillers. One step that people often miss in the effort to rejuvenate their skin is exfoliation. 

Exfoliation not only makes your skin look brighter and fresher but can enhance the efficacy of your other skin care treatments and products as well. This important skin care step can be accomplished in several different ways, but one of our favorites is dermaplaning. Once you experience the benefits of dermaplaning, you will surely want to make it a regular step in your routine. 

What Is Dermaplaning?

A dermaplaning facial is a non-invasive spa service provided by one of our expert estheticians. It is a painless procedure with no downtime. In a dermaplaning facial, a sharp blade is used against clean skin to slough off dead skin cells and unwanted hair or “peach fuzz”. The result is smooth, vibrant, and exfoliated skin. Dermaplaning can also be used as a pre-microdermabrasion or pre-facial treatment to increase the efficacy of your other skin care treatments at Skin MB. 

Does Dermaplaning Hurt?

Dermaplaning can seem like an intimidating procedure since it involves a sharp blade near the face. However, with highly trained estheticians and top-of-the-line facilities and equipment, dermaplaning at Skin MB is a perfectly safe procedure. A blade is used by an esthetician to glide against the surface of the skin and will not leave you with any cuts or abrasions. The process is entirely non-invasive and only affects the top layer of skin cells and facial hair. 

At Skin MB, we are always sure to educate our patients about any post-care they may need after a facial or procedure. While there is no recovery time needed after a dermaplaning facial, your skin will become more sensitive to the sun for a few days, so we make sure our patients know to use a good sunscreen post-treatment. 

How Often Should I Get A Dermaplaning Facial?

Dermaplaning does not permanently remove hair, and your facial hair will begin to grow back gradually and softly. Since dermaplaning removes both dead skin cells and hair that has grown over time, we recommend making this procedure a regular part of your skin care routine. This allows you to maintain soft, smooth, and fresh skin long-term. For the best results, we recommend that you schedule a dermaplaning facial once every 30 to 45 days. With our free skin care consultation, you can discuss the best schedule for your skin care routine with one of our estheticians. 

Why Dermaplaning Is Good For Your Skin

There are many benefits that you can experience from a dermaplaning facial, especially if you make it a regular part of your skin care routine. A huge benefit of dermaplaning is improving the overall tone, texture, and brightness of your skin. Immediately after the facial, you will notice that your skin is perfectly soft and smooth due to the hair removal and exfoliation. Removing the hair and dead skin cells also brightens and improves the tone of your skin. Many people find that after a dermaplaning treatment their skin looks smoother and better under makeup as well.

Dermaplaning is not only beneficial to the cosmetic appearance of your skin. Removing the dead skin from the surface of your face allows for other skin care products and moisturizers to penetrate the skin better. You will find that other skin care treatments and products are working more effectively. This is a great reason to make dermaplaning a regular part of your routine, as you will continue to see better long-term effects from the rest of your skin care.
