Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation that has removed dead skin cells and vellus hair from the surface of your skin. Your face should feel softer than ever and look brighter and more youthful.
Be sure to take care of your skin following dermaplaning or other anti-aging treatments. Following these instructions will maintain your results longer and help you avoid complications.
Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and warm, not hot water. Splash water on face. Do not use abrasive wash cloths, Clarisonic, or hot shower spray for the first 24-48 hours. Do not use cleansers, serums or spot treatments containing salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) for 5 days following treatment.
Tone: Hydrating and brightening toners applied with a cotton round will penetrate deeper into the skin. If you are sensitive, try all products on a small area before applying on full face.
Serums: Active ingredients in serums penetrate much better now, so you’ll see quicker results. Ask your esthetician about the right serums for your skin. Please do not use Retin-A, 5 days pre and post dermaplaning. For darker skin tones: use a brightening serum to reduce the risk of excess pigment production.
Moisturizer: Choose a hydrating moisturizer and apply twice daily. It’s common for skin to feel tight but is dewy to the touch. This is good and will only last a short time. Moisturizer locks in skin hydration with the added absorption of it’s active ingredients. For darker skin tones: use a 1% hydrocortisone cream for 5 days following treatment to calm inflammation and reduce the risk of excess pigment production.
SPF: Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after exfoliation. SPF is essential to protect your skin-even on cloudy days when UVA (aging) rays are present.
Makeup: Makeup can irritate skin after dermaplaning. Bacteria, alcohols, colorants and fragrance are all irritants that can cause contact dermatitis. Be sure to clean your makeup brushes and apply clean makeup to minimize risks.
DO: Avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, apply and reapply SPF 30+ every 2 hours, wear a hat and sunglasses and seek shade.
DO: Delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms and saunas for 24-48 hours post treatment.
DO: Wait 7 days before facial waxing. Waxing may be done prior to dermaplaning.
