Veritas Medical Center
Dermaplaning is one of the fastest growing trends in skincare and for good reason. This technique promotes smoother skin and better absorption of your favorite skincare produuts. Although dermaplaning is very popular, this technique should be performed by a trained aesthetician like those at Veritas Medical Center.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation procedure on the face. The trained clinician will use a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin and “peach fuzz”. Performed іn under 30 minutes, dermaplaning can be done monthly with no downtime.
Who Can Benefit From Dermaplaning?
Almost any individual can benefit from the effective surface exfoliation of a dermaplaning treatment. The treatment is especially ideal for individuals with dry, rough skin, those with a lot of fine facial hair, and pregnant women. It can also be performed in conjunction with a facial or chemical peel for even greater results!
After receiving a dermaplaning treatment, the skin will immediately be softer and suppler. Makeup will go on smoother and other facial products such as moisturizers and acne treatments will have a better chance of absorption. Overall, dermaplaning offers many benefits for a variety of individuals.
How Dermaplane Works?
Dermaplane is one of many exfoliation treatments offered by Veritas Medical Center. In some ways, it is similar to microdermabrasion procedures, such as DiamondTome, in that it removes dead skin cells from the surface of your skin, to gradually reduce hyperpigmentation and the appearance of wrinkles. However, Dermaplane is distinctly different.
When Veritas Medical Center administers Dermaplane, they use a specialized sharp blade. The blade is positioned at an approximately 45-degree angle in relation to the skin, and is gently swept across the skin’s surface. The sweeping action gently removes dead skin cells in the upper-most layers of the skin; cells which are often at the end of the skin’s natural regeneration cycle and can make it appear dull or discolored. In the process, the Dermaplane blade also removes the fine hair on the skin, which can reduce the need for waxing, although this procedure does not take the place of facial waxing completely.

What Can I Expect After My Dermaplane?
Because dermaplaning is non-invasive it has a low risk of complications and is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available. Some patients report redness or dry feeling in their skin after a treatment, but this is temporary. Very rarely the skin can be nicked. This typically heals almost on the spot – remember – most men use a blade on their faces almost every day and nick themselves regularly with no long-term effects! Typical care following your treatment includes the use of moisturizers and sunscreens, and avoiding sun exposure for a few days. There is no downtime for this “lunch hour” procedure, and most people return to their regular activities immediately.
