What is Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning is a fast, simple, and effective procedure for restoring facial skin. This process immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). It is also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. If you would like to learn more about dermaplaning, please get in touch with us at Jolie Visage Medspa and Clinic to schedule an informative consultation at our location in Buford Village in Buford, GA.


How does Dermaplaning work?

At Jolie Visage Medspa & Clinic in Buford GA dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure that is extremely safe when performed by our skin care experts, utilizing our state-of-the-art tools. This procedure has been practiced by dermatologists and plastic surgeons for over 40 years. It was originally performed as an alternative to, or prep for, chemical exfoliation. It was later used to prepare the skin for resurfacing treatments and deeper chemical peels. We offer dermaplaning as an accompaniment to other procedures or as its own skin rejuvenating treatment.


How long is Recovery Time?

This is a simple, minor procedure that has no major recovery time. You may experience redness in the two or three days right after the procedure. For the first few days after your treatment, you will want to avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, apply and reapply SPF 30+ every 2 hours, wear a hat and sunglasses, and seek shade. In addition, you should delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms, and saunas for 24-48 hours post-treatment. If you want to do facial waxing, you should do it before dermaplaning.


What Conditions Will Dermaplaning Treat?

The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth. It is great for prepping the skin prior to peels and enzyme treatments and to increase penetration of active ingredients in the treatment room and home care products. It creates the perfect canvas for makeup application and is the go-to treatment to prepare for high-profile occasions.


How Soon will I See Results from Dermaplaning?

Because there is often redness in the treatment area for the first couple of days after treatment, you may not be able to fully appreciate the results right away. However, you may notice an immediate brightening of your skin after a treatment.* Once the redness has faded, you will be able to fully enjoy the great new look of your skin. Clients love this treatment and will return monthly to have it done. We recommend you space out your treatments about four weeks apart for best results.
