What is Dermaplaning Facial? By Idan Med Spa at San Francisco. Dermaplaning Is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and getrid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as "peach fuzz"

It's different from dermabrasion, where esthetician or doctor uses a high-speed, rotating brush to exfoliate the skin. With dermaplaning, they use a scalpel or a tool called dermatome. The doctor or esthetician moves the dermatome, which looks like an electric razor, back and forth to scrape off the layer of dead skin.

Benefits of Dermaplaning Facial:

The exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother.

The treatment may soften fine lines and wrinkles and ease hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone. It's also used to treat deep acne scars.

How well it works really depends on your skin type, tone, and medical history. At Idan Med Spa we will perform a consultation right before your dermaplaning appointment.

Risks and Side Effects:

Most people have little to no irritation or reaction. Short term side-effects may include:

- Red and swollen skin from the scraping

- Soreness

- A burning or tingling sensation for about 48 hours after the procedure

It's not common for your hair to grow back thicker or darker. But in tatr cases, dark hair may grow near your chin or "sideburns".

Dermaplaning isn't recommended if you have inflammatory skin conditions such as:

- Acne

- Rosacea

- Psoriasis

- Eczema

- Sunburn

How long does Dermaplaning results last?

Facial at Idan Med Spa San Francisco Results from dermaplaning are temporary and last about 3-4 weeks. This time is about how long it takes the skin to complete a rejuvenation cycle. It is important to note it is not permanent solution. After all, dead skin cells continue to build over time, and fine hairs are constantly growing.

There is no downtime needed to let your skin heal.

Experts recommend using a SPF of at least 30 and moisturizer (Idan Med Spa daily Moisturizer) afterward. That's because your skin may be more sensitive.

You can do dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks. But it's important to remember it won't get rid of all acne scars or stop aging. Facial San Francisco at Idan Med Spa
