What Is Dermablading and How Does It Work?
Dermablading treatment is non-invasive and it’s designed to gently yet effectively remove unwanted hair, bacteria, dirt, damaged skin cells, oils, and other imperfections to leave behind a radiant complexion. This is an effective and quick treatment for many skin types and can address the specific needs of the patient.
During the dermablading treatment, your provider will take a sterile surgical blade and move it gently across your skin at a 45-degree angle. The blade is sharp enough to remove vellus hair (peach fuzz) and will leave your skin smooth as long as it’s performed by a seasoned professional. Many patients opt to get dermablading service in combination with other treatments such as chemical peels to achieve a more even skin tone.
In addition to being an effective treatment to target dead skin cells, dermablading in Edina can also make your creams and lotions more effective as oils and bacteria are removed. Makeup often sits more evenly on the facial skin as well.
What Can Dermablading Improve?
Many patients set a dermablading appointment to treat the following cosmetic concerns:
- Acne scars
- Dull or worn-out dead skin cells
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Vellus hair (peach fuzz)
- Uneven skin tone and texture
As an added bonus, another benefit of dermablading treatment is that it’s suitable for all skin types. The majority of patients who are considering this treatment take advantage of our free consultation and are ultimately great candidates. During the consultation, your provider will evaluate your skin and make sure that it will benefit from this treatment. In the case that you currently have an active cold sore, facial wounds, or cystic acne, you might not be a candidate for the procedure.

What Is the Dermablading Treatment Process at Metropolitan?
You might be curious about the dermablading process and what you can expect during your treatment. This treatment is relatively fast and most patients are able to leave our office in 45 minutes or less, with most appointments taking anywhere from 15-30 minutes. Rest assured that your schedule will not be significantly impacted and many patients opt to get this procedure over lunchtime as the side effects are so minimal.
Before the treatment begins, your dermablading provider will thoroughly clean and dry your skin to prepare it. He or she will then pull your skin taught and gently scrape the outermost layer in an upward motion with the sterile surgical blade at a 45-degree angle. This is done in a way that it does not penetrate the surface of the skin or cause any irritation to the layers of your skin. As a result, your skin will appear to be youthful and soft as soon as you leave our practice.
There isn’t any discomfort felt during this procedure so there aren’t any numbing creams required. A soothing moisturizer may be applied after to help lock in the benefits.
