Exfoliation is vital to healthy, glowing skin, and Dermaplaning is one of the best skin resurfacing techniques. Dermaplaning can resolve skin issues such as scars, hyperpigmentation, and rough dry skin. But how many sessions of Dermaplaning will it take to reduce the appearance of a scar with hyperpigmentation (click here).
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple method of exfoliating the outermost (epidermal) layers of skin. A sterile surgical scalpel is used to shave the upper surface of the skin to slough off dead skin cells, and get rid of fine hair. The procedure can be performed in 30 minutes or less, so it can be done during your lunch hour. Best of all, it requires no downtime. The skin will be smoother and more radiant after treatment.
How many Dermaplaning sessions do you need?
It generally takes multiple sessions to achieve the benefits of Dermaplaning. A series of treatments typically includes 6 sessions, but most patients see results after 2-3 sessions. Some patients include Dermaplaning as part of an effective skin care routine, and undergo regular treatments every 2 to 4 weeks.
Dermaplaning must be performed with a great deal of care, as it should only be done on the superficial layers of the skin. If the blade penetrates to the deeper layers it can result in scarring, as well as some bleeding. Therefore it is always advisable to have the procedure performed by an experienced medical practitioner.
