Dermaplaning Q&A

Perfect Smile Tulsa

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a facial treatment that revitalizes areas of skin affected by a variety of imperfections. Dermaplaning can also be used to get rid of pesky peach fuzz on the face. This specialized procedure uses a single, straight razor blade that removes the very top surface layer of the skin.

Our certified professional aesthetician performs dermaplaning as a standalone procedure or combined with other cosmetic procedures to provide you with high-quality skin care and anti-aging results.

Who can benefit from dermaplaning?

Women and men with virtually all skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. In particular, dermaplaning improves the appearance of the following types of skin imperfections:

Before your procedure, our certified professional aesthetician will discuss your skin and skincare routine. She will also discuss how factors, such as your skin type and medical history may affect your likely results.

How does dermaplaning work?

Our certified professional aesthetician “skims” the surface layer of your skin to get rid of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The fresher, healthier-looking layer of skin is revealed beneath.

Because this process clears away that top layer of dead or dry skin, over time you will likely start to see fine wrinkles and acne scars dimish.*

How long does a dermaplaning session last?

The length of a dermaplaning procedure depends on the state of your skin and the size of the treatment area. This appointment at Perfect Smile Tulsa typically lasts up to an hour for the full face. For optimal results, our certified professional aesthetician may recommend multiple dermaplaning sessions.

Is dermaplaning safe?

Yes! When performed by a professional like our certified professional aesthetician, dermaplaning is safe. Directly following a dermaplaning procedure, your skin may feel irritated and appear swollen or red for a few days. This is normal.

After your session, the new skin cells need time to grow. Our certified professional aesthetician ensures you schedule follow-up appointments, so she can monitor your progress and prevent and address any complications, such as blisters, pigmentation changes, or thickened skin. If you notice anything out of the ordinary, call our office right away.
