Have your favorite products become less effective? Does your complexion feel a little dull? Refresh your skin by removing debris and skin impurities and revealing healthier, new cells with dermaplaning.

When old skin cells are replaced with new ones, the old ones move closer to the surface where they are expected to shed. This means that the skin cells most visible are those in the worst condition, and they don’t always wash away during the normal beauty routine. At Balanced Aesthetics Medspa, we can unveil those fresh, new cells with dermaplaning for a revitalized appearance.

Dermaplaning Atlanta

Am I a Good Candidate?

Nearly anyone who has concerns about the clarity and texture of their skin is an ideal candidate for dermaplaning. It is not recommended for clients who have an active infection or an acne breakout in progress until the infection or acne heals. Be sure to tell your Balanced Aesthetics provider about any facial treatments or medications (including topical) you’ve had in the last 30 days during your comprehensive consultation.

What Results Can I Expect?

Your skin takes on an immediate radiance following your dermaplaning session at Balanced Aesthetics Medspa, and you’ll notice your favorite skincare products have gotten a boost in their effectiveness. You may have some mild reddening, but after it subsides in the first 2 days, your skin will be brighter, clearer, and more vibrant with a smoother, more even tone and texture. Acne scars and fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, and your complexion will radiate youth and beauty. Having a dermaplaning treatment once a month will help you maintain that soft, smooth, and glowing appearance.

The concept is simple: exfoliate the top layers of skin using a specialized blade that removes the debris, dead and damaged skin cells, and peach fuzz from your face (or anywhere on the body). The surface of your skin is where the most accumulated damage appears. By angling the dermaplaning tool at a 45° angle, all those toxins, irritants, and textural imperfections—including acne scars—are cleared away.

Dermaplaning benefits include:

  • Safe exfoliation
  • Better product absorption
  • Smoother skin
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars and other blemishes
  • Removes unwanted hair
  • Provides the canvas for more even makeup application
  • Unclogs pores
  • Removes dead skin cells helping to prevent breakouts

You should not shave or wax your face for 1-2 weeks ahead of your appointment and avoid direct sun exposure 72 hours before your dermaplaning session.

Your dermaplaning treatment will be conducted in the comfort of the Balanced Aesthetics offices. Once you’re relaxed, we’ll dermaplane your skin for 20-30 minutes to gently exfoliate the topmost layer and remove the dead cells, debris, and tiny hairs of your treatment area. The treatment is not painful, and our skilled estheticians are highly trained to minimize the risk of nicks to your skin. Once your skin is treated, we’ll apply skin products to moisturize and soothe your treatment area.

We recommend applying Vitamin C and moisturizer and avoiding sun exposure for 72 hours following your treatment. Refrain from touching your face for 4-6 hours post-treatment. Makeup can be worn 24-48 hours after your procedure, as your skin will be more absorbent following your treatment.
