Do You Want Smoother, More Radiant Skin?

At our Springfield, Missouri office, dermaplaning is a safe and effective way to remove the outer layers of dead skin that can leave your complexion looking dull. The treatment is non-invasive and requires no chemicals or downtime. Your treatment will begin with a gentle cleansing, and then our skincare specialist will thoroughly dry your skin.

Next, the dermaplaning tool is gently applied to your skin at an angle. With short, delicate strokes, this tool will slowly scrape away the dull, dead skin cells and vellus hairs. Dermaplaning does not cause any discomfort and is a restful, pleasant treatment.

Can I Schedule Other Treatments with Dermaplaning?

It’s common to schedule other procedures in combination with dermaplaning. Many of our patients undergo several aesthetic procedures in one visit. After dermaplaning, you may choose to have a custom serum applied, which will deeply infuse into your skin to enhance health and radiance.

What Should I Expect?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment that provides immediate results. You can expect to return to your routine activities immediately following your session. Results can be seen as soon as your treatment is finished. After removing dead skin cells and fine, vellus hairs, your skin will feel smooth and soft, with a fresh and natural glow.

Can I Attend an Event After Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an excellent option for anyone that may be attending an important social event such as a wedding, reunion, or a baby shower. You will leave your treatment with a refreshed appearance. Dermaplaning also helps your skin absorb your daily skincare products more deeply into the skin and provides a smooth palette for applying makeup. After the procedure, your skin may be slightly pink. It’s important to avoid any exfoliating scrubs for several days after your dermaplaning treatment. If attending an important event, schedule dermaplaning at least 24 to 48 hours before your special occasion.

Will My Hair Grow Back Darker?

Dermaplaning will not cause your hair to grow back darker or thicker. The brightness of your skin that is realized post-treatment might seem duller after the peach fuzz returns, which is usually in about 3 to 4 weeks. However, hair growth is not increased with this treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need to Obtain the Best Results?

The length of time your skin will look smoother and brighter depends on the individual. However, for consistent results, we schedule dermaplaning about once a month to promote healthy cell turnover and to ensure your skin remains hair-free, fresh, and glowing.
