San Antonio, TXDermaplaning

If you are troubled with face hairs or what is commonly referred to as peach fuzz, then you should consider dermaplaning at San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery.

Dermaplaning is an advanced and highly effective skin treatment solution that gently exfoliates your skin to remove your facial hair. The gentle exfoliation process can also help address common skin issues such as fine lines, sun-damage, as well as dull and dry skin to leave you with a smooth, youthful, and radiant facial skin appearance. In some cases, Dermaplaning can also be effective in treating skin conditions such as scarring from acne and pockmarks. The primary reason why Dermaplaning is a popular treatment option among patients is that it is ideally suited for all skin types.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a facial exfoliating technique that removes away the top layer of dead skin and fine, peach fuzz hairs using a surgical scalpel. The procedure is quick, easy, and requires no healing or post-treatment. Although similar to microdermabrasion or chemical peel which remove dead skin cells, dermaplaning has the added benefit of removing the fine hairs that grow on the face.

Should I Consider Dermaplaning?

Yes! Dermaplaning is effective for most people, especially those unable to have a chemical peel due to adverse conditions like dark or tanned skin, and pregnancy or lactation.

Mature skin can also benefit from the procedure, as cell regeneration slows down during aging. Rough and dry skin can be treated, as well as simple acne scarring or discoloration. However, if your skin is prone to inflammatory conditions, you may want to avoid it. Oily skin, acne, and thick facial hair are also deterrents for the procedure. Shaving does not yield the same result as dermaplaning, as it does not remove the dead skin cells. As such, do not attempt the procedure without a trained professional.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Anyone can be a good candidate for dermaplaning. However, it is best to always consult with an expert skin specialist such as Dr. Ortegon before deciding to go ahead with any kind of facial skin removal treatment – including Dermaplane.

Preparing for your Dermaplaning Treatment

The success of your Dermaplane treatment depends on a number of factors which include your skin type, skin coloring, and your medical history – each of these aspects will be discussed in detail when you come in for a consultation. It might be necessary to reschedule your Dermaplane session in case you have an acne flare-up – the process of exfoliation can further irritate your skin. You will be advised to avoid direct sun exposure at least a week before you come in for your treatment – this is done to avoid any kind of sun damage.

After your Dermaplaning Treatment

Once your facial hair is removed via Dermaplaning, you will be able to immediately notice a smoother skin texture – minus the peach fuzz. One of the advantages of getting a Dermaplane is that it can be coupled with other skincare treatments such as Dermalinfusion and chemical peels.
