Shortly after the procedure, the skin may appear slightly red and irritated. This is normal, as the skin has just undergone a thorough exfoliation process. However, this typically subsides within a few hours. Additionally, since dermaplaning removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells, underlying blemishes and imperfections may be more noticeable initially. Nevertheless, this is only temporary and should resolve quickly as the skin continues to heal and rejuvenate.
After dermaplaning, the skin will be highly receptive to topical skincare products, as the exfoliation process removes barriers that may prevent products from penetrating deep into the skin. Therefore, it is important to nourish and protect the skin with a light moisturizer and a broad-spectrum sunscreen to maintain the results of the treatment.
