Is Dermaplaning Good For Aging Skin?

By December 13, 2021 No Comments
Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin and peach fuzz from the surface of the skin. It does not involve any ablation and is safe for all skin types and tones. Since it mainly is an exfoliation treatment, many patients ask, “Is dermaplaning good for aging skin?” While dermaplaning on its own is not an anti-aging treatment, it can complement other anti-aging procedures. For example, because dermaplaning removes dead skin and hair that may otherwise prevent skincare products and procedures from penetrating deeper into the skin. When a patient undergoes dermaplaning before another procedure, this can increase the efficacy. This is especially true of medical grade facials and chemical peels. Additionally, dermaplaning is great for providing a temporary skin glow. Therefore, if you need a quick glow for an event, dermaplaning is a great finishing touch that can give you a healthy looking glow and make your make-up go on easier. In short, yes, dermaplaning is good for aging skin, though it is not an anti-aging treatment on its own.
