Taking care of the skin means more than just washing your face and protecting it with sunblock. The skin regenerates regularly, and this excess, dull skin needs to be removed regularly to ensure that the face is refreshed and beautiful. To do this, patients will want to ask their doctor at MD Cote about the benefits of exfoliation. Manual exfoliation with a procedure called dermaplaning is a wonderful way for patients to boost the appearance of their skin, allowing for a youthful transformation with a single visit!
What is dermaplaning?
Patients often hear of dermaplaning but are unsure as to what the procedure entails. Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process during which the doctor will remove the upper surface of the skin using a medical-grade blade. The dead skin cells and vellus facial hair, sometimes known as “peach fuzz,” are removed to brighten and beautify the skin.
Who could benefit from dermaplaning?
Patients who hear of dermaplaning also wonder if they are good candidates for the treatment. It is a safe and effective way to boost the skin’s appearance and can be performed on all skin types and tones. Some of the best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure are patients who are looking for an exfoliation that doesn’t use chemical peels or microdermabrasion. The treatment is great for those with an abundance of facial hair, non-sensitive skin, and who want to improve their uneven skin tone and complexion.
What to expect
The procedure is performed right in the office by Dr. Cynthia Cote to carefully scrape the skin’s surface to remove the damaged cells and facial hair. This brightens the texture and tone of the skin and allows for youthful skin underneath to be revealed.
