Dermaplaning Q & A

What is dermaplaning?

In dermaplaning, your highly trained Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care provider uses a specialized single blade to shave off dead facial skin cells and vellus hair, the ultrafine baby hairs on your face. Dermaplaning is an advanced type of exfoliation that can remove weeks worth of dead skin cells at one time. 

Is dermaplaning right for me?

Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types. But, if you have active acne, you must wait until the breakout clears to have dermaplaning. 

Many patients have dermaplaning after their photofacial at Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care. The photofacial targets hyperpigmentation like age spots and vascular lesions like spider veins, while also beginning new collagen and elastin production over time. 

While the benefits of the photofacial appear in the upcoming days and weeks, the benefits of dermaplaning are immediate. After a photofacial followed by dermaplaning, you’ll leave Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care with smooth, soft skin that improves even more over time as the effects of the photofacial kick in.

What does dermaplaning feel like?

Dermaplaning isn’t painful at all. It’s simply a specialized exfoliation for your face. You may experience a slight scraping sensation as your care provider removes the vellus hair, but it’s not uncomfortable.

Does dermaplaning cause thicker hair regrowth?

No, dermaplaning doesn’t change your hair growth cycle in any way. Although your vellus hair regrows naturally over time, it’ll be the same as it was before. If you want to maintain optimal skin smoothness, you can schedule regular dermaplaning treatments every 3-4 weeks. 

How do I take care of my skin after dermaplaning?

Your Louisiana Aesthetics and Skin Care treatment provider will give you specific instructions for the days immediately after dermaplaning, such as:

  • Avoid sun exposure 
  • Avoid exfoliating skin products 
  • Use a gentle skin cleanser
  • Don’t scrub your skin
  • Avoid picking your skin

As long as you treat your skin gently after dermaplaning, you can expect amazingly soft skin. Many patients say that they really enjoy applying makeup with such a smooth canvas!
