Dermaplaning FAQs in Syracuse, NY

Dermaplaning is often a new concept for many clients. While it is a safe treatment, it’s easy to be nervous about something that’s unfamiliar. Below are a few common questions about dermaplaning. Douglas Halliday and the Cool Lipo Laser Center of New York Laser Skin Spa team perform a comprehensive range of hair removal and skin care procedures for men and women throughout Syracuse, NY, and the surrounding communities.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Not at all. Most clients have reported that the treatment is quite pleasant and relaxing.

If the fine hair on the face is removed, will it grow back thicker?

This kind of hair typically grows back at the same texture as existed before your treatment.

Is this treatment safe?

Dermaplaning is very safe when performed by a trained professional. This procedure involves no greater risk than a man who regularly shaves in the morning.

Can dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?

Definitely. We use a gentle peel with no harsh ingredients. The peel is full of nutrients and antioxidants. These two procedures, when done together, culminate in a freshened and rejuvenated complexion.

What skin types or conditions should avoid dermaplaning?

It is not recommended for those suffering from acne.

Will this treatment shrink my pores?

Yes. This treatment removes the outermost layer of skin, naturally affecting the size of the pores and how visible they are.

Will I be able to apply makeup right after this treatment?

Our method for dermaplaning is very gentle, and you should be able to apply makeup right after your treatment and go on with your life right then and there.

Can dermaplaning be performed if I have acne?

Dermaplaning is contraindicated for those suffering from acne. In that instance, a chemical peel might be more appropriate. Dermaplaning is not typically indicated for anyone dealing with any lesion on the face, moles included.

Select Dermaplaning vs. other treatment alternatives?

For most situations, the primary alternative to dermaplaning is microdermabrasion. Like dermaplaning, microdermabrasion has long been one of the top non-surgical treatments for facial skin rejuvenation. And while they both aim to achieve similar goals, the treatment mechanism, and the effects can be slightly different. Instead of using a surgical blade, our medical grade microdermabrasion exfoliates the surface skin with pressurized abrasive diamonds and suction. Due to that suction, microdermabrasion is not recommended for people who have Rosacea or prone to broken capillaries.
