Are there any medication restrictions before undergoing dermaplaning?

When it comes to Dermaplaning at Pia Day Spa, the good news is that you don't need any special medication for the treatment itself. However, there are a few important considerations regarding your current skincare routine and medications:

  1. Strong Exfoliants and Treatments:

    • If you're using potent skincare products like Retin-A, Obagi, or other similar exfoliants and brightening treatments, it's crucial to pause their use.
    • We recommend stopping these products at least 3 days before your Dermaplaning appointment. This pause is necessary to reduce the risk of skin irritation or sensitivity during the treatment.
  2. Medications like Accutane:

    • For those on strong medications such as Accutane, which significantly affects skin sensitivity and healing, a longer break might be necessary.
    • It's best to consult with your dermatologist or healthcare provider, as well as inform our estheticians about such medications.
  3. General Skin Care:

    • Leading up to your Dermaplaning session, it's advisable to treat your skin gently. Avoid any harsh scrubs or chemical peels that might over-sensitize your skin.
  4. Post-Treatment Care:

    • After Dermaplaning, your skin will be more receptive to skincare products. This is a great time to nourish it with gentle, hydrating products.
    • However, immediately after the treatment, it's best to avoid reintroducing strong exfoliants for a few days to allow your skin to settle.
  5. Consultation for Personalized Advice:

    • Every skin type is unique, and so are the products and medications you might be using. We recommend a personalized consultation with our skilled estheticians at Pia Day Spa to tailor the best pre and post-treatment care for you.
