Dermaplaning in Atlanta, GA

YMD MedSpa Offers A Unique Dermaplaning Experience For All Skin Types

What is Dermaplaning?

‍There’s nothing quite like a skin-refining, glow-inducing treatment that removes dead skin and peach fuzz for smoother skin that boasts that lit-from-within glow we are chasing forever. And the easiest way to achieve it is with dermaplaning. This beloved treatment works fast and provides immediate results, leaving the face feeling baby soft and your makeup looking flawless.

Eliminate Dead Skin Cells

How does Dermaplaning work?

‍By eliminating dead skin cells that sit on the surface, the pores are less likely to be clogged. Exfoliation is an essential step of any well-rounded skincare routine. A buildup of dead skin cells can easily obstruct the pores and hair follicles, leading to breakouts. The treatment also allows light to reflect correctly off the skin giving it a luminous glow.

Alternative Techniques

Who can benefit from Dermaplanning?

The exfoliating and hair removing treatment works for most skin tones and types and for anyone who wants to remove peach fuzz from their face and freshen up their skin. It's also an excellent alternative to more traditional hair removal techniques like waxing and threading and modes of exfoliation such as scrubs.

If you suffer from cystic acne, active acne breakouts, rosacea, or eczema, it’s best to schedule a consultation first to determine if you are a candidate for dermaplaning. Some of the main benefits of dermaplaning include:

  • Smoother, softer skin
  • Luminous, glowy skin
  • Makeup that goes on better
  • Improved penetration of topical skincare products
  • More even skin tone
  • May improve the appearance of acne scars and fine lines
  • Improves clogged pores

Dermaplaning Frequently Asked Questions

No. It's a myth that shaving will cause the hairs to grow back thicker and darker. Instead, you'll stay smooth and fuzz-free for a few weeks, if not longer. Then, when the hair re-emerges, it will be the same color, texture, and density as pre-dermaplaning.

While everyone is different, on average, our Atlanta dermaplaning providers recommend scheduling sessions every three to four weeks. However, if your skin starts to look dull and there is noticeable peach fuzz before then, you can opt for the treatment earlier. Conversely, if you can stretch out the results longer, you can schedule your dermaplaning appointments accordingly.

Following dermaplaning Atlanta patients are encouraged to keep the skin well protected from the sun. The more sun exposure it receives, the more likely it is to pigment. That's why it's essential to wear UVA and UVB broad-spectrum sunscreen every day. You can use your regular skincare products after your treatment, although if your skin feels a little sensitive, it's best to hold off for a few days on supercharged actives, like retinol and glycolic acids. Suppose your aesthetician couples dermaplaning with other skin rejuvenating treatments (like a chemical peel); you'll need to avoid exfoliating agents until it is safe to resume using this–you don't want to over-exfoliate the skin.
