Please discontinue products containing any exfoliating agents (retinoic acid, tretinoin, retinol, benzoyl peroxide, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, astringents, etc.) 24-48 hours before treatment.
No waxing at least a week before dermaplaning.
No direct sun exposure a week before dermaplaning.

Your provider will recommend appropriate products to help enhance results and/or minimize potential side effects.
Aerobic exercise or vigorous physical activity should be avoided until all redness has subsided.
Direct sunlight exposure is to be completely avoided immediately following the treatment (including any strong UV light exposure or tanning beds). Although SPF 30+ should already be a part of your daily skin care, after dermaplaning, SPF 30+ must be applied daily to the treated area for a minimum of two weeks.
Twice daily cleanse the treated area with a post-treatment cleanser, followed by a serum or treatment cream and follow with SPF 30+ sunscreen.
