What to expect from the procedure?
In the two or three days following the operation, you may suffer redness or the sensation of having your skin scraped.
Although you may notice that your skin looks brighter quickly after a dermaplaning treatment, the full benefits usually take a few days to realize. In the days following the procedure, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly as any redness fades.
You’ll need to be particularly cautious about sun exposure after a dermaplaning procedure.
Risks and possible side effects
Dermaplaning is a very risk-free technique. Within few hour of treatment, you may notice a minor redness on your face. After dermaplaning, some people get whiteheads on their skin for a day or two.
If you acquire a scar due to dermaplaning, your doctor may need to inject a steroid into the scar tissue to soften it.
Another possible side effect is uneven skin pigmentation in the area where the treatment was performed, which may fade or vanish with time.
