RG Dermaplaning: Skin Rejuvenation in Nashville

RG Plastic Surgery is proud to offer dermaplaning for the Nashville, TN area. Your complete satisfaction and safety are our objectives in bringing you this wonderful skincare spa treatment. The treatment painlessly exfoliates the skin and eliminates peach fuzz, which results in smooth, soft, healthy skin. Dermaplaning is an excellent option before the HydraFacial® as it helps with product penetration. 

Benefits of Dermaplaning

How well the following benefits work will depend on your skin type, tone, and medical history.

  • Leaves your skin brighter and smoother 
  • Gets rid of visible facial hair
  • May soften fine lines and wrinkles 
  • May ease hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone
  • Can be used to treat deep acne scars
  • Makeup will apply smoother and more evenly

Candidates for Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is not for patients with inflammatory skin conditions such as active acne, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, or a sunburn. If you’re taking isotretinoin for acne, you should wait six months after you stop taking it to undergo a dermaplaning treatment.

How is dermaplaning different than dermabrasion?

Will dermaplaning cause my facial hair to grow back thick or dark?

Can dermaplaning cause an acne breakout?

How is dermaplaning different than dermabrasion?

Dermabrasion uses a high-speed, rotating brush is to exfoliate the skin. Dermaplaning uses a scalpel or a tool called a “dermatome” which looks like an electric razor. The dermatome is moved back and forth to scrape off the top layer of dead skin.

Will dermaplaning cause my facial hair to grow back thick or dark?

No, this is a myth. Peach fuzz is so soft and thin that the dermaplaning tool cannot affect how it grows back. However, in rare cases, dark hair may grow near your chin or “sideburn area”.

Can dermaplaning cause an acne breakout?

No. As a matter of fact, this treatment actually prevents acne breakouts from starting because it exfoliates the skin. This means that it unclogs and cleans the pores out, which keeps acne at bay.

Dermaplaning Treatment Details

Before treatment, it’s best to avoid exfoliating your skin and avoid direct sunlight or tanning for three days beforehand. 

On the day of your appointment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped. No numbing is necessary, as there is no pain involved in dermaplaning.

The dermatome will move gently you’re your skin, exfoliating and removing vellus hairs as it goes across the skin. The treatment takes around 30 minutes. 

While many patients notice results after just one dermaplaning treatment, we recommend having it done every 2-4 weeks for optimal results.

Downtime and Aftercare

There’s no downtime needed to let your skin heal after a dermaplaning treatment. However, you may experience facial redness, swelling, soreness, or a burning/tingling feeling for 24-48 hours following treatment. 

  • Avoid wearing makeup for the remainder of the day
  • Be very gentle when washing your face
  • Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and moisturizer on the treated area any time you go outside for the next few weeks
