How Long Can Dermaplaning Results Last?

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive treatment that involves gently scraping off the dead, flaky skin cells and vellum hair (aka peach fuzz) with a professional instrument. Is it not a painful treatment, but it’s best performed by a professional to avoid injury to the skin and give you uniform results.

If you’re looking for smoother skin, the team at Soha Spa and Wellness in Gaithersburg, MD is experienced in dermaplaning. Keep reading to find out how it can improve the look of your skin and how long dermaplaning results last.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a more precise way of shaving. The instrument used at Soha Spa and Wellness allows our team to gently remove dead, flaky skin cells that can dull your complexion and prevent makeup and skin care products from going on evenly.

By removing these skin cells along with the peach fuzz on your face, where powders and other products can accumulate and draw attention, dermaplaning allows you to work with a fresh layer of skin. As a result, you get the following benefits:

  • Even skin texture
  • A smooth surface for your skin care products to penetrate down to the deeper layers of your skin
  • A more solid foundation for your cosmetics, so they go on evenly
  • A glowing complexion, virtually free of dead skin cells and other patchy areas

What can I expect during and after dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a virtually painless and quick procedure. Because we want to give you even results, you can expect to spend about 30 minutes in the office. You can take this time to relax and plan your new beauty routine.

After dermaplaning, there are some things you should avoid for around 24 hours to ensure the fresh, new skin that’s revealed is not exposed to anything that would damage it. For example:

  • Avoid harsh cleansers, and chemical and physical exfoliants for at least one week
  • Avoid sun exposure without SPF for at least three days
  • Avoid makeup for 24 hours
  • Avoid chlorine (such as in swimming pools and hot tubs) for around one week
  • Stay out of extreme heat that causes sweating for 2 – 3 days
  • Instead, take this time to pamper your skin, using gentle cleansers and hydrating face serum or oil. But don’t touch your face too much since you want to avoid transferring bacteria to your bright new complexion.
  • Depending on your skin’s sensitivity, you may need an extra day to let your skin adjust. However, it should not feel raw or red since this is gentler than a chemical peel.

How long do dermaplaning results last?

Everyone’s skin is different, and sometimes when you’re young or healthy, your body regenerates skin cells and hair follicles faster. You can expect your bright new complexion to last around 4 – 6 weeks. After that, you may be ready for your next dermaplaning appointment.

It’s important to note that many women avoid getting rid of facial hair because they fear it may grow back thicker or darker. But this is a myth. You may be more aware of the hair growing back after having smooth skin, but unless you have a hormonal condition, you should not experience more obvious regrowth.
