Dermaplaning is a new rejuvenating treatment with anti-aging properties that uses a pain-free scalpel to remove peach fuzz, debris, and dead skin cells to reveal smooth and healthy skin. By speeding up the cell turnover process, this treatment stimulates the production of collagen in your skin, revealing brighter and clearer skin. At Steele Creek Dermatology in Charlotte NC, we offer this restoring treatment to ensure your skin is clean, smooth, and healthy.

Prior to Your First Treatment
The first step is to have a consultation with the doctor who will be performing your dermaplaning treatment. You will identify your areas of concern and communicate any previous treatments or procedures you’ve had to ensure your skin is ready for the treatment. Your doctor will also thoroughly explain the process to you, giving you peace of mind.
Make sure you drink a healthy amount of water and moisturize in the days leading up to your appointment. If you wax, make sure your last wax is at least one week before your appointment, and limit your sun exposure by wearing sunscreen.
The treatment starts with a clean bare face. Once you arrive at our treatment center, you will be greeted and escorted to a calming room where you will lay back and close your eyes, just as you would if you were receiving a facial. We will then use a handheld, surgical-grade blade to scrape away all dead skin, dirt, and peach fuzz from the skin. It is completely painless and takes about 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
This treatment is non-invasive and requires zero downtime. You can resume your regular daily activities immediately. It may be recommended that you don’t wear makeup for a day or two as your skin could be sensitive, but you will be ready to flaunt your smooth complexion! As you always should, make sure you wear sunscreen to protect your skin from harmful UV rays and hydrate your skin daily.
How Often Should You Do Dermaplaning for Best Results?
Once a month, your skin will naturally resurface itself, meaning this treatment isn’t permanent. We will help personalize your treatment plan to ensure it fits your skin’s unique cycle, but you will likely want to get this treatment every 4 to 6 weeks. You want to ensure you are not over-exfoliating by dermaplaning too often or under-exfoliating so you aren’t achieving the fullest and best results. Schedule your appointments in advance and follow the pre-treatment steps before every appointment.
Dermaplaning is safe, easy, and the best treatment if you want to achieve smooth and glowing skin immediately. For more information on this treatment, visit Steele Creek Dermatology in Charlotte NC.
