Dermaplaning is a popular aesthetic treatment in Jacksonville

The skin can be exfoliated in various ways: daily application of vitamin A or C solution, manual exfoliation with a gentle loofa, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and now, dermaplaning. In our Jacksonville spa and laser center, this relaxing treatment is very popular.

What is dermaplaning?

This safe, highly effective exfoliation procedure is performed by a specially trained esthetician. Completed with a sterile, surgical scalpel, dermaplaning actually “shaves” the surface of the skin, removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells. Along with dead skin cells, “peach fuzz” is also removed in this treatment process.

Dermaplaning is a relaxing treatment that is completed in our office in about thirty minutes. There is no downtime and no special instructions for aftercare other than to practice sun safety. Many of our Jacksonville clients visit us monthly for a dermaplaning treatment.

Benefits of dermaplaning

Exfoliation of the skin is what triggers the regeneration of new cells. Exfoliation is also a necessary process for the absorption of skin care products. By removing the outer layer of skin cells, the barrier between young cells and nourishing creams or serums is eliminated, maximizing their power in producing healthy, youthful skin. The removal of vellus hairs, or peach fuzz, is a nice side effect of treatment, especially for individuals in whom these hairs are thicker or darker. The removal of vellus hairs in dermaplaning does not cause them to grow back thicker.

Is dermaplaning right for me?

Dermaplaning is not shaving. It is a specific technique performed by a trained skin care professional. This treatment can improve uneven skin tone and the appearance of superficial acne scars. Men and women with rough or dry skin, as well as those with mature skin, tend to experience wonderful results from dermaplaning treatment. Individuals with sensitive skin or who are pregnant or lactating may not be able to receive exfoliation treatments such as chemical peels. In such instances, dermaplaning is a safe, efficient way to pamper the skin.
