Dermaplaning in Savannah, GA
If you are looking for a gentle exfoliation treatment that can enhance skin texture with minimal downtime, then dermaplaning may be the perfect solution. At Savannah Plastic Surgery, we offer dermaplaning to the men and women living in Savannah, Georgia, and the surrounding areas of Chatham County.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation treatment that is performed to remove dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and other debris from the skin's surface. Compared to other exfoliation techniques, which are designed to remove multiple layers of skin to eliminate skin damage, dermaplaning is quite superficial. Instead of targeting skin beneath the surface, the dermaplaning technique is merely performed by scraping along the skin's surface. This provides a much more comfortable treatment experience, and significantly reduces any recovery period and side effects associated with treatment. While dermaplaning can help reduce fine lines and acne scars, its primary benefits include:
- Improved efficacy of skin care products
- Smoother skin
- Removal of fine hair and skin cells that clog pores
How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?
The cost of dermaplaning treatments at Savannah Plastic Surgery can vary. The exact cost of your treatment will depend on variables that include your treatment goals and the number of treatment sessions necessary to achieve those goals. During your consultation, we will discuss these factors in order to develop a personalized treatment plan and provide you with the exact cost of treatment. We can also determine your eligibility for health insurance coverage at this time. To learn more about our insurance policies or your payment options, please refer to our financing and insurance page.
What is the Dermaplaning Treatment Like?
The dermaplaning treatment is performed in-office and requires no anesthetic. The treatment only involves the use of a medical grade scalpel, which is carefully scraped across the skin's surface to remove skin cells and other debris. This process is generally well-tolerated by patients, and is often described as a scratching sensation. The dermaplaning treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform.
What is the Dermaplaning Recovery Like?
There is no downtime or recovery period following a dermaplaning procedure. Since it only removes dead skin cells and hair, the body does not need to heal or recover from treatment. You may notice some minor redness or sensitivity following dermaplaning, but these side effects typically fade within a few hours.
What Dermaplaning Results Can I Expect?
You can expect softer and smoother skin immediately following your dermaplaning treatment. However, it is estimated that dermaplaning removes about one month's worth of dead skin cells and debris from the skin. This means that after about one month, your results will fade. For this reason, many patients choose to receive monthly dermaplaning treatments. With regular treatments, you can maintain your results for much longer than one month.
