What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning benefitsDermaplaning is a popular exfoliation treatment that is safe for all skin tones and types. It is performed by gently guiding a straight-edged surgical scalpel across the surface of your face. The short, feathery strokes of the blade remove both dead skin cells and fine vellus hairs known as peach fuzz. Since it makes your skin more receptive to products, dermaplaning is often used before other treatments.

Some people have attempted to perform this treatment at home. However, it is best to visit a skin care professional who has trained in the proper technique to ensure you receive even, consistent results while minimizing the risk of cuts, scrapes, or irritation.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is one of the best ways to exfoliate the skin. It removes dead skin cells more deeply and evenly than scrubs or other methods. Eliminating dead skin has numerous benefits, such as:

  • Improving uneven tone and texture
  • Revealing a vibrant, youthful glow
  • Promoting collagen and elastin production
  • Preventing your pores from becoming clogged

At the same time, dermaplaning removes vellus facial hairs. These are thin, light-colored hairs that are common on the chin, upper lip, forehead, and cheeks. By getting rid of these hairs, your makeup application will look smoother and more even. Keep in mind that your hair will not grow back faster or thicker, that’s a myth!

Your Dermaplaning Appointment

A typical dermaplaning session takes approximately 40 minutes. It is often referred to as a lunchtime treatment because the time commitment is minimal, and there is no recovery period.

The process is simple, but it relies heavily on skill and technique. Our master esthetician will pull your skin taught and gently swipe the sterile blade in precise, controlled motions.

You won’t feel any pain during your treatment. The sensation is similar to shaving any other part of your body. However, dermaplaning goes far beyond a simple shave. It uses a single, sharp blade instead of a stacked row like you would find in a traditional razor. This allows for greater precision and optimal results.

Dermaplaning Results 

After your session, you will notice an instant improvement in the look and feel of your skin. Your skin will temporarily be more receptive to skin care products at this time, so be sure to apply beneficial moisturizers and serums.

Dermaplaning offers both an instant and long-term improvement in your skin. However, the dead skin cells will eventually reaccumulate and the hair will grow back. For those reasons, many patients schedule a session every month or so to maintain the best results.
