Dermaplaning is an increasingly popular, noninvasive method for exfoliating facial skin and removing the fine vellus hair known as “peach fuzz.”

Dermaplaning is appropriate for a wide variety of skin types, and the Indiana skin care experts at Centre Yourself Medical Rejuvenation Spa can help you determine if dermaplaning is right for you.

To learn more about dermaplaning or schedule your appointment, please call our Mishawaka office at 574-968-9100 or toll free at 1-800-909-2992.

Dermaplaning Candidates

Dermaplaning is suitable for women and men who desire a more youthful, supple skin tone. Although dermaplaning is effective for many skin types, it is not suited for those with severe acne.

Dermaplaning is ideal for pregnant or nursing women who desire an exfoliation treatment but want to avoid chemical-based procedures. It is also a good choice for those with sensitive skin or allergies to the contents of chemical peels.

The Dermaplaning Procedure

Dermaplaning is a brief, outpatient treatment in which your plastic surgeon or licensed skin care professional gently strokes the surface of your facial skin with a sterile, scalpel-like blade.

The process exfoliates the epidermis—the outer layer of skin tissue—by removing dead skin cells and unwanted vellus hair. The procedure is pain free, requires no recovery time, and leaves no residual swelling or bruising.

Dermaplaning Benefits

  • Dermaplaning restores healthier, more youthful skin tone by:
  • Reducing the size of pores
  • Removing undesirable facial hair
  • Smoothing light surface wrinkles
  • Unclogging blackheads
  • Dermaplaning further encourages the generation of new skin cells and allows improved absorption of skin-care products, such as facial lotion and sunscreen.

Dermaplaning and Facial Hair

The vellus hair will eventually grow back, but there are misconceptions about whether dermaplaning affects hair growth. Vellus hair eliminated by dermaplaning will not regrow thicker or darker than before.

These ultra-fine hairs will return at the same consistency and coloration. Repeat dermaplaning treatments spaced about three to four weeks apart can help retain results and keep visible hair in check.

Dermaplaning vs. Dermabrasion

Dermaplaning is often confused with dermabrasion. Both procedures soften surface irregularities for improved skin tone, but dermabrasion uses a rotating device to essentially sand down the outer layer of tissue to promote the growth of smoother, healthier skin.

Dermabrasion is more beneficial to those seeking to reduce the appearance of deeper facial lines or blemishes, such as acne scars; we also offer a noninvasive, laser-based acne scar treatment.

If you’re considering a facial treatment, our licensed skin care professionals are here to help you understand your options and make the right choice based on your unique needs and cosmetic goals.

Please contact us today with your questions or to schedule your personal consultation. Centre Yourself Medical Rejuvenation Spa welcomes clients from the greater Elkhart and Mishawaka, Indiana, areas and across the nation.
