Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning Treatment near Kansas City

Throughout your lifetime, your skin is in a constant process of shedding dead cells and replacing them with younger ones. However, this process becomes less efficient as we age, causing dead skin cells to remain stuck on the skin’s surface. The results often include clogged pores and a noticeably duller appearance.

At Summit Skin & Vein Care, we offer a variety of exfoliating treatments—including dermaplaning—to help remove dead skin cells and trigger cell regeneration. The result? Smoother, more radiant skin, as well as improved penetration of skin care products and a reduced appearance of fine lines and acne scars.

Dermaplaning is one of our most popular exfoliation treatments. It’s safe, comfortable, quick, and requires no downtime. If you’re ready to speak to one of our specialists about whether dermaplaning is right for you, call Summit Skin & Vein Care today! We offer complimentary skin care consultations at our Lee’s Summit treatment center.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation treatment similar in theory to microdermabrasion but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. Because it is a gentle treatment, dermaplaning does not break the capillaries on the face as some more aggressive exfoliators may.During your treatment, our certified aesthetician will use a surgical-grade blade to exfoliate, remove vellus hair (peach fuzz), and smooth away dead skin. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells creates a smoother texture and more youthful glow.

What are the Benefits?

Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment whether you want a refreshed appearance before an important social event, or you just want to restore a subtle, youthful‐looking shine to your skin. Here are just some of the ways dermaplaning can transform your skin:

  • Hair Removal: After scraping off dead skin cells and the fine, vellus hair (“peach fuzz” or “baby hairs”), the skin is immediately smoother and softer to the touch.
  • Collagen Production: Promoting collagen production helps give your skin a youthful glow, improving the appearance and slowing the process of fine lines and aging.
  • Penetration of Skin Care Products: The exfoliating process helps skin care products penetrate deeper into the skin.
  • Prevent Breakouts: Removing dead skin cells and improving the penetration of your skin care products helps prevent breakouts.
  • Flawless Makeup Application: Removing dead skin cells, baby hairs, and other things that makeup gets caught on can help your face look smooth and flawless.

Who Should Try This Treatment?

Dermaplaning is recommended for individuals of all skin types, except those with acneic skin or dermatitis. Dermaplaning is a safe exfoliation alternative to chemical peels for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding.

A dermaplaning treatment can help patients concerned about:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Surface irregularities

Dermaplaning Q & A

Can I do my own dermaplaning treatment at home?

Because the blade used for dermaplaning is especially sharp, we don’t recommend that you try this procedure at home. Even the most ambitious at-home self-care routine should opt for having their treatments done by a professional who has been trained with the correct techniques to achieve the best, pain-free results.

What’s the difference between dermaplaning and microdermabrasion?

Both dermaplaning and microdermabrasionaim for the same result: healthy, youthful, exfoliated skin. However, both treatments are very different in terms of what the procedure looks like. While dermaplaning is a mild treatment, microdermabrasion is slightly more aggressive. However, it’s still not painful, nor is it dangerous, like some myths say. Microdermabrasion is an excellent procedure for treating various forms of scars, wrinkles, and other skin inconsistencies. However, it won’t remove hair and will typically cause some redness and swelling. Not sure which treatment is right for you? Our specialists would love to help you decide which procedure is best for your skin goals.

Will shaving my face make my hair grow back thicker?

Contrary to popular belief, shaving your face doesn’t actually make your hair grow back darker, faster, or thicker. Your hair will grow back at the same rate it grew before, but it might feel different because of being cut straight across. Hair tapers as it grows, so it may seem like your hair is growing back thicker but it is only because you are used to the look and feel of the matured hair strand. There simply is no truth behind the idea that shaving causes any type of acceleration or increase in hair growth.
