Dermaplaning San Antonio, TX
Dermaplaning in San Antonio is a simple, minimally invasive, and safe procedure for manually exfoliating the outer layer of the dermis (skin). It also removes the skin of vellus hair (peach fuzz). It can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars and pitted skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick and painless procedure that helps to improve the absorption of products and give your skin a healthy glow.
The procedure includes using a surgical-grade micro-blade to remove fine hairs that trap oil and bacteria, making applying makeup difficult. Your dermaplaning specialist can also remove dead skin cells and debris, revealing a smooth, radiant glow.
Consider dermaplaning if you have skin issues like:
- Acne scars
- Acinic keratosis or scaly skin patches that may lead to skin cancer
- Dry or dull skin
- Peach or vellus hair (the light, soft hair on your face that can hinder makeup)
- Skin damaged by sun exposure
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Those who are not a good candidate for dermaplaning include:
- Skin burns
- Skin tags, moles, freckles, or other skin growths
- You have an active case of acne
- Cold sore outbreaks
- Skin rashes like contact dermatitis
This treatment immediately smooths and brightens skin. There is no downtime after this treatment. You may have slight redness for a few hours, but your skin will be smooth and brighten very quickly. No general anesthesia is needed, but you can ask for a numbing cream about half an hour before the procedure. You may feel a scratching or stinging sensation on your skin, but dermaplaning is not painful.
We call this a lunchtime treatment since patients often return to work as soon as the treatment is over.
