5 Reasons to Consider Dermaplaning

Have you ever wished there was a way to get rid of all of the build-up on the surface of your skin without the downtime of a chemical peel or the redness of microdermabrasion? If so, we have some good news. 

At Island Lotus Health & Wellness in Brunswick, Georgia, we can transform your skin with dermaplaning. Serena Skinner, MSN, APRN, FNP-BC, and the entire Island Lotus Health & Wellness team are extremely experienced in using this trusted treatment to help you look your absolute best. 

During dermaplaning, one of our PCA SKIN®-certified spa services experts carefully scrapes a sharp blade against the surface of your skin. As the blade moves at an angle, it doesn’t break the surface of your skin — but it does clear away dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Here are five things this treatment can do for you: 

#1: It cleans and smooths the surface of your skin

As the dermaplaning blade moves over your skin, it scrapes dead skin cells and hair follicles. This clears the surface of your skin, helping you to avoid future breakouts. It also reveals the newer, healthier skin cells underneath, helping your skin look younger and smoother. 

#2: It breaks up imperfections

The blade doesn’t just get rid of dead skin cells. It also helps to break up scar tissue and the effects of pollution and sun exposure on your face. This makes it effective in reducing the appearance of acne scars, sun damage, and fine lines. 

#3: It gets rid of peach fuzz

In some ways, dermaplaning is a bit like shaving your face. The sterile blade moves across your skin at a calculated angle, gathering more than just hair as it goes. That said, it does still get rid of that pesky peach fuzz that can prevent your skin from glowing and make makeup application a headache. 

#4: There’s no downtime

While many skin-transforming treatments come with at least a few days of redness or other irritation, dermaplaning is a no-downtime treatment. You leave your appointment with your skin glowing. 

#5: It’s safe for all skin types

You don’t have to worry about a skin reaction after dermaplaning. This treatment is safe for all people. That said, if you’re actively breaking out, we may recommend that we first treat your acne before dermaplaning. 

Dermaplaning is a powerful tool that can help your skin look its best. If you’re ready to see for yourself what it can do, schedule your appointment online or call our office to book it. We’re excited to put dermaplaning to work for you so you can leave our office looking radiant.
