Exfoliation is a necessary part of skincare at home and in professional treatments.
Here at Amaira, one of our favorite add-ons to our medical facials is Dermaplaning.
Now that we have you hooked, I bet you are wondering what this service entails and maybe thinking about the question we get most often: “Does it hurt?”
Dermaplaning is a medical treatment that uses a very sharp tool to skim dead skin cells and hair off the face. The blade is single-use and disposable. We use only high-quality products to perform this service at Amaira.
It is a customer favorite for removing “peach fuzz,” the soft, short hairs on your face.
During this procedure, you won’t feel any pain. You may feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment.
First, you’ll lie down on our incredibly comfortable facial table in a clean, medical esthetician room. After we have you tucked in, our providers will glide a manual dermaplaning tool over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 15-20 minutes, as we gently turn over your skin cells.
After the treatment is finished, your esthetician will continue by hydrating your fresh skin with a series of serums and moisturizers. We will also always apply sunscreen to protect your face from the unforgiving Florida sun.
Here, at Amaira, we love to perform combination treatments. Your esthetician may suggest a chemical peel following your dermaplaning service if you are a candidate. Following a dermaplaning service, your skin has the ability to deeply absorb a chemical peel in a way it can’t at other times. A chemical peel can cost an additional $100 to $350 in our office.
This very popular service is a simple way to add the glow back into your skincare regimen. Dermaplaning allows your home care products to absorb more effectively in addition to increasing cell turnover. It is a staff favorite for good reason—the no downtime and quick results make it a go-to for our staff and patients alike.
While this is a fantastic treatment to perform, there is a lot of misinformation available to patients, which can make dermaplaning sound less than ideal. These are a few of the most common myths we hear surrounding this treatment.
