Dermaplaning is a safe and incredibly efficient exfoliation procedure used to clear away dead, dry, and unhealthy layers of skin. Dermaplaning can be performed as a standalone procedure or as the initial step before cosmetic peel. This clinical procedure is performed at both our Salem dermatology clinic and at our new location in Wilsonville, Oregon, Dermatologists PA, by skin care specialists trained in using specialized equipment designed specifically for this treatment.
Dermaplaning helps to revitalize and rejuvenate the top layers of your skin through the practice of controlled surgical scraping. The treatment works by softening the hard edges of any irregularities on the surface of your skin, giving it a smoother appearance overall. This exfoliation treatment immediately improves your appearance by eliminating fine lines that are the hallmark of aging skin, increasing the absorption rate of skin care and pharmaceutical products, and by providing a healthier, more radiant glow to your skin.
Dermaplaning is frequently used to improve the appearance of facial skin by removing scarring or smoothing out fine facial wrinkles. The procedure is occasionally used to remove pre-cancerous growths, and is more commonly used to treat deep acne scars.
Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. The procedure can be used alone, or in conjunction with other procedures such as scar removal or a chemical peel.
Men and women of all ages can benefit from dermaplaning, making this an ideal treatment for those both young and mature. While age does influence how quickly a patient will heal following dermaplaning treatment, skin type, color, and medical history matter more than age when determining if a patient makes an ideal candidate for the procedure. Schedule a dermaplaning consultation with our team at the Dermatology Clinic in Salem or Dermatologists PA in Wilsonville to see if this exciting procedure is right for you.
