What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York is a treatment that is beneficial for men and women of any age. However, if you endure cystic acne, we recommend waiting until active breakouts clear to schedule a dermaplaning procedure. Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation process that incorporates a surgical 10-blade scalpel to target peach fuzz, wrinkles, and facial scars. It swiftly and gently removes the top layer of skin revealing a smooth, revitalized surface.

What causes dull and damaged skin?

When it comes to dull, damaged skin, all clients are different. The source of damaged skin can come from a variety of factors. Fortunately, dermaplaning in Rochester, New York can fix fine lines, acne scars, and dark spots—regardless of what caused those issues.

As we get older, our skin loses moisture, which causes our skin to look dry and dull. This happens to most people as the years pass.

Sun exposure
Sun exposure racks up over the years, especially if you don’t regularly wear SPF. Over time, sun damage can create dark spots, rough skin, and fine lines.

Environmental toxins
Harsh, dry air and other environmental toxins take a toll on our skin. The top layer of your skin begins to lose its natural glow, causing you to look older.

Who can get Dermaplaning in Rochester?

Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York is perfect for people looking to reduce sun damage, fine lines, acne scars, and even peach fuzz. Throughout the years, sun exposure causes our skin to lose its youthful glow. It causes visible signs of aging such as dark spots, acne scars, and dull skin. Dermaplaning is a great way to help get rid of those signs to leave your skin rejuvenated and fresh.

Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York can be right for you if have:

The great thing about a dermaplaning procedure is that it works for all skin types. Plus, it’s a great preventative measure for people in their 20s and 30s. Our trained professionals ensure that our dermaplaning is done with care so that you get the best results possible.


Can Dermaplaning be done at home?

While there are at-home dermaplaning tools out there, you can’t expect to see the same results as if you had gotten the procedure done professionally. Trying to dermaplane at home also makes you vulnerable to mishaps and greater risks such as pain or infection.

If you want to reap the full benefits of rejuvenated and young-looking skin with little side effects, we highly recommend coming to Envision Aesthetics for an appointment for dermaplaning at our Rochester med spa.

A professional dermaplaning procedure uses a surgical-grade knife at a 45-degree angle that carefully scrapes dead skin cells. When done by a medical professional, the process is painless and easy. You’ll be able to go about your day with little to no side effects. Plus, dermaplaning only takes about 30 minutes, so you’ll be in and out in no time!

Dermaplaning versus Microdermabrasion

Both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion work by exfoliating the top layer of skin to reveal the fresh, undamaged skin that sits below. The difference between dermaplaning versus microdermabrasion lies in the device used. Dermaplaning uses a surgical-grade blade to scrape off dead, dull skin cells while microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin using a handheld device.

If you’re unsure which procedure would be best for you, schedule a consultation with one of our professionals at Envision Aesthetics. We’ll go over your skin goals to help you make that decision.


Benefits of Dermaplaning

Fast procedure

Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York, is a swift procedure that requires no downtime. It is an efficient procedure, allowing you to continue your regular daily routine. We highly recommend applying sunscreen with SPF 30+ the following 21 days, as your skin will be extra sensitive to the sun’s rays.

A more vibrant you

As dermaplaning in Rochester, New York is a procedure that removes the top layer of your skin, it unveils a vibrant refreshed surface. With regular treatments, your complexion will be free of peach fuzz, skin tone will appear more even, and facial scarring will be minimized. Dermaplaning gives you the gift of revitalized, vibrant skin you’ve always wanted.

Baby smooth skin

Environmental factors and natural aging cause wrinkles, lines, and damaged skin. Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York, is a procedure that minimizes these visible markers. Your skin will feel and appear baby smooth, allowing your makeup to glide on and others to notice your smooth complexion after a dermaplaning procedure at Envision Aesthetics.

Side effects of Dermaplaning

The great part about dermaplaning in Rochester from Envision Aesthetics is that it is a low-risk skin treatment. Immediately after the procedure, you may notice some slight redness or a feeling that your skin has been scraped. This usually will go away within a few hours of your procedure.

The biggest risks of dermaplaning stem from getting the treatment done by someone with little experience. Our trained dermaplaning specialists at Envision Aesthetics take great care in gently exfoliating the skin so that we avoid any issues such as scarring, discoloration, or infections.

The Gold Standard of Care

Dermaplaning should never be done by someone who isn’t a trained professional. Doing so could negatively impact your results, or worse, cause damage to your skin. For the best dermaplaning results, you’ll want to go somewhere you know you can trust. At Envision Aesthetics, our physician Dr. Whipple is board certified in ophthalmology, with a specialty board-certification by the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery. With us, you’ll be getting the gold standard every time.

Before the Procedure

Since dermaplaning in Rochester, New York is minimally invasive, you won’t have to worry about preparing in advance. Before your dermaplaning appointment, you’ll first meet with us for a free one-hour consultation. During the consultation, we’ll speak with you about your skin goals and evaluate your specific issues.

At Envision Aesthetics, we always cater our procedures to match each client’s specific needs. That means you don’t have to worry about a one-size-fits-all treatment. We make sure that your goals are clear and attainable before the dermaplaning procedure ever starts. That way, you’ll feel confident that we can help you achieve the vibrant, glowing skin you’re been looking for!

During the Procedure

First, your dermaplaning specialist will clean your skin to ensure that there isn’t any dirt or bacteria that could cause infections. Aiming the blade at a 45-degree angle, we will begin removing the top layers of dead, dull skin. This includes dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris that could be making you look older.

As the procedure continues, a fresh layer of skin will emerge, leaving you with a youthful glow. Dermaplaning itself is virtually painless, but you may feel a tingling sensation as the knife exfoliates the treated areas. Dermaplaning is a fast, outpatient procedure that takes only about 30 minutes. You can even come in on your lunch break, then go about the rest of your day when you’re done.

After the Procedure

You may find that your skin is noticeably brighter immediately after the procedure, and results will continue to improve during the next few days. This is especially true if you have minor redness after your dermaplaning appointment in Rochester.

Dermaplaning can also cause your skin to feel very sensitive to the sun, so avoid extended periods of sun exposure. Further sun damage could reverse the effects of your dermaplaning procedure or cause blotches of discoloration. You should also wear SPF on your face every time you leave the house (this is true all the time, but especially after dermaplaning!).

Client Results

Dermaplaning in Rochester, New York, produces visible results that you will feel confident in. Results vary from individual to individual, but typically last for 4-6 weeks. After the first treatment, patients typically receive additional treatments every 4 weeks to maintain a smooth, vibrant complexion.
