Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning treatment at Thrive Wellness in Brentwood is a gentle resurfacing of the skin using a single-use surgical blade to remove the outermost layer of skin.

Dermaplaning offers a variety of benefits and is minimally invasive. This treatment is safe and effective for almost all skin types.

To prepare for dermaplaning in Brentwood, we suggest:

  • Avoid sun exposure and waxing for 2 weeks before appointment
  • Stop any exfoliating products or treatments 3 days before dermablading
  • Make sure skin is free of acne. Dermaplaning shouldn’t be performed during an active outbreak as it can spread bacteria to other parts of the skin

For a few days following RF dermaplaning in Brentwood, you should:

  • Avoid direct sunlight
  • Use gentle facial cleansing products to avoid irritating your skin
