How long after dermaplaning should you avoid sun?

Thanks for your query. If you had a deep dermaplaning then sun has to be avoided for a minimum period if 7-10 days and sunscreen has to be continued lifelong. Hope it helps

Thank you for your question. It is always important to maintain safe sun exposure practices. Please review the recovery instructions provided by your board certified facial plastic surgeon for the recommended answer as you should be working closely with your surgeon. You will need to avoid putting anything on the treated area for at least a week, but you should always apply sunscreen on your face for the rest of your life.

After dermabrasion avoid sun or protect from sun for at least 6 weeks. If you get early sun exposure you will form a deep tan from UV stimulation.   This dark tan can last many months and is unsightly.   My Best,  Dr Commons
