Dermaplaning in Beverly Hills

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning in Beverly Hills is a modern way to achieve exfoliation. It works by a specialist sing a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.
It is a favorite among celebrities in the entertainment industry because of its two key benefits. It not only removes any peach fuzz that is captured by sunlight and flash photography, but it also takes care of all dead skin cells, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking bright.

Is dermaplaning safe?

When it comes to dermaplaning and the use of the very sharp blade used, the procedure is safe when performed by a trained and licensed provider. In short, when you are in expert hands, you minimize any risk. Dermaplaning is no more dangerous than a man getting a facial shave from a barbershop, as long as the provider is qualified and knows what they are doing. And all of our specialists at Cloud Med Spa fit the bill. Also worth noting: when you undergo dermaplaning, it is important to sit very still since it is performed with a sharp blade.

How does it work?

Dermaplaning should be performed by a licensed and experienced provider because it involves running a very sharp blade. In fact, it is the type used in surgeries! The blad is run with precision over the skin to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair (aka peach fuzz) by scraping off the top layer of the skin. This procedure produces an immediately more radiant appearance with instant results. Following this treatment, makeup application is smoother. Additionally, other skin products can penetrate deeper, making them more effective than before.etween your brows.

Who is a candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an ideal option for anyone with fine facial hair, unusually sensitive skin, or rosacea. The only people who dermaplaning is not recommended for are those with acne-prone skin. Oil from the sebaceous glands needs to travel along the villous hair to be excreted. So when the hair is removed, the oil can build up and block glands on the face. This in turn causes breakouts for people who are prone to them. In addition, anyone with numerous raised lesions or skin irregularities or a nickel allergy should not undergo dermaplaning.

Is it painful?

When patients hear about the use of a scalpel, this is often their first concern. But dermaplaning causes zero pain during or after the procedure! In fact, it feels more like the sensation of shaving your legs. However, it is important to sit very still and make no sudden movements. Since there is a very sharp blade involved, being still prevents any unwanted nicks.

How long does dermaplaning take?

Dermaplaning is a quick procedure and usually takes about 30 minutes to do the entire face. You can expect to be in and out of the office in less than an hour. That time includes your consultation, preparation, treatment, and after-care instructions. In short, it is short and you can get right back to your life.

How often does Dermaplaning need to be performed?

Dermaplaning can be performed approximately every 3-4 weeks or once the skin has completed its next rejuvenation cycle. In order for it to be effective and worthwhile, dead skin cells need to accumulate again. Also, the vellous hairs (peach fuzz) would have to grow back. You can undergo a single Dermaplane treatment if you want radiant skin for a specific event. Or you can do dermaplaning treatments once a month to maintain radiant skin all the time.

How long do results last?

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 a permanent solution. After all, dead skin cells continue to build over time, and fine hairs are constantly growing. But it is an ideal quick way to get instantly vibrant results regularly or for important events. For example, dermaplaning can be ideal before an event or photoshoot, since the best results are most prominent immediately after the treatment.

What do I need to do to prepare for a Dermaplaning treatment?

Nothing specific needs to be done in preparation for a Dermaplaning treatment. However, it is always recommended that patients avoid prolonged sun exposure and drink plenty of water before and after treatments. It is also not advised to undergo dermaplane treatments if you have any raised lesions, open sores, or acne on your face.

What areas of the body can be treated with Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is designed to be a facial treatment. As such, it is not normally used on any body parts besides the face and upper neck. If you have an inquiry about dermaplaning for a body part other than your face, please ask one of our specialists.

What is the recovery from Dermaplaning like?

There is no recovery period after dermaplaning. In fact, you can apply makeup and resume your normal daily activities directly after the treatment. We recommend using sun protection of SPF 30 or higher at all times to prevent hyperpigmentation even with minimal sun exposure. We also always recommend proper hydration to further promote healthy and glowing skin. And that is about it!

When will I see results?

Results from dermaplaning are evident instantly after treatment. Your skin will feel softer than ever before to the touch. Additionally, it will appear more even in tone and texture. Most people notice that their makeup goes on more smoothly as well, and skincare products get a boost.

What should I expect at my appointment?

Dermaplane treatments usually take about 20-30 minutes. Your specialist will cleanse your face, and they then use a sterile blade to gently exfoliate your skin. This treatment removes the thin, top layer of dead skin cells and fine hair (peach fuzz). All through a gentle scraping process with a blade designed specifically for this process. This exfoliation process prevents dead skin buildup that can make small facial wrinkles and acne scars appear larger. Dead skin cells typically are the reason your skin feels rough. So an effective dermaplane treatment will eliminate these cells and leave your skin feeling smooth and looking radiant.
