Dermaplane Q & A

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that exfoliates the top layers of your skin using a sterile scalpel blade to reveal the younger, fresher skin underneath. 

The process not only removes the dead skin cells, but it also stimulates cell turnover to improve the health and look of your skin. Dermaplaning also improves your complexion by removing your peach-fuzz facial hair.

Ruth likes dermaplaning because it’s gentle enough for all skin types and can be easily incorporated into your regular beauty routine to help slow down the effects of aging.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe, gentle, and quick cosmetic treatment that offers many benefits. You may want to consider consulting with Ruth at The Loft MedSpa to discuss dermaplaning if you have concerns about:

  • A dull complexion
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage

Ruth also likes dermaplaning because it improves the effectiveness of your at-home skin-care regimen by allowing your products to more effectively penetrate your skin. 

What happens during a dermaplaning treatment?

Ruth conducts your dermaplaning at the office, and it takes 20-30 minutes. Dermaplaning is noninvasive and typically well-tolerated. If you’re sensitive to pain, let Ruth know so she can adjust your treatment to minimize your discomfort. 

After she’s properly cleansed your face with an antiseptic agent, Ruth gently scrapes the surface layers of your skin using a sterile scalpel blade.

Once she’s completed your exfoliation, Ruth applies a soothing gel and sunblock. Your skin may be slightly reddened after the procedure, but the side effects should disappear within a day or two.

You should notice an improvement in the look of your skin immediately after your dermaplaning, with continued improvements over the next few days as your skin heals.

What can I do to maintain my results?

Ruth recommends monthly dermaplaning to help you maintain your youthful glow. She also suggests that you use sunblock daily and cover up with a wide-brimmed hat and large sunglasses if you intend on being out in the sun for any length of time.
