What is dermaplaning? Does it work?

Imagine your skin feeling and looking fresh and glowing without chemical treatments. Dermaplaning is pain-free, non-invasive, and entirely natural. As the surgical blade is gently feathered across your skin, dead skin cells and debris are gently removed from the surface along with peach fuzz. Your skin will feel refreshed, smooth, and renewed. Skin rejuvenating serums and creams will better enter your skin, and makeup is applied smoothly and easily.

Why choose Alinea Medical Spa in NYC for dermaplaning?

While dermaplaning is gentle and effective, you want to ensure your treatment is performed by a certified skincare expert.

What is the dermaplaning experience?

Dermaplaning is pleasant and easy to experience, with no discomfort or pain. You will be resting comfortably on a treatment bed during your procedure. Your skin will be fully cleansed, and then a small, sterile blade will be gently passed over the skin surface.

The area of your skin being treated will be gently pulled as the feather-like strokes are applied. It is a soothing, pleasurable experience, with beautiful, glowing results.

Does dermaplaning require aftercare?

After your dermaplaning treatment in New York , you should avoid applying any retinoids or exfoliating products for five days. Your skin will be more sensitive, so ensure you wear sunscreen and a high-quality, gentle moisturizer.

Does dermaplaning have side effects?

You may experience slightly reddened skin, which typically dissipates within a few hours. You should not experience any other side effects, as the treatment is non-chemical and very gentle. The peach fuzz on your face will return within about a month, and many people choose to undergo a dermaplaning treatment every four weeks to maintain fresh, glowing, hair-free skin.

Candidates for dermaplaning

Many people rely on dermaplaning to maintain a fresh, healthy glow. This can be the ideal treatment for pregnant women, people who have ultra-sensitive skin, or those who have a great deal of facial hair. It is not an appropriate treatment if you are suffering an active acne breakout, cystic acne, or hirsutism (male-pattern hair growth in women).

It may not be the ideal treatment for those with very oily skin. Only a private consultation with our skincare expert will reveal the most effective treatment or set of treatments for your skin, and we invite you to experience the patient-centered care at Alinea Medical Spa, where we are committed to total patient satisfaction in a warm, supportive atmosphere.
