Dermaplane Columbus Medical Spa

Dermaplane Facial Exfoliation at Columbus Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery

It is well known that skin exfoliation is an important anti-aging beauty must.  As we age, our skin cell turnover slows down.  Therefore, we have to give our skin a helping hand and mimic what younger skin does naturally.   There are many great options for exfoliating skin in Columbus:  Microdermabrasion, Chemical Peels, and Topical Application of Medical Grade products are among the best.  But, one option that is among the simplest – yet most effective – is the Dermaplane technique.

What is Dermaplaning? A Dermaplane treatment is a gentle resurfacing technique.  It utilizes a special surgical grade blade that is lightly moved across the face in order to remove dead skin cells.  By removing the outer layers of skin, it is also effective in treating acne scars and wrinkles.   And unlike other treatments, it doesn’t require any harsh chemicals so it is tolerated very well by most skin types.  In addition to exfoliation, dermaplaning will also remove the tiny hairs on the face.  Many of our Ohio clients like this method of hair removal over waxing as it leaves less irritation on the skin.  Makeup application is also much smoother over skin that has been effectively treated.  Dermaplane is often used in conjunction with other facial treatments and your aesthetician may use it as a prepping step.  Since it removes the layers of dead skin cells and tiny hairs, it allows other treatment agents to absorb better into the skin.   Better yet, your skin will absorb your professional  skin care products, such as Obagi, SkinMedica & Vivite more effectively; thus allowing them to work better.

Dermaplane should only be performed by highly trained medical aesthetician.  In our plastic surgeon supervised Columbus medical spa locations in Upper Arlington, Easton Town Center, Dublin & Westerville we recommend dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks to in order for your skin to mimic younger acting skin & achieve dead skin cell removal.   This regular maintenance will help you to achieve beautiful, smooth, healthy skin!
