What is Dermaplaning?

Have you noticed that your skin seems to look dull, or makeup doesn’t seem to sit nicely on your skin? If so, it may be because you have a buildup of dead skin cells or vellus hair (peach fuzz) that can make your skin look uneven or texturized. Dermaplaning is an effective treatment option for achieving a smoother and brighter complexion. During this treatment, a special dermaplaning scalpel is used to gently exfoliate the skin, removing unwanted skin cells, dirt, and hair.   

Dermaplaning can be performed to improve the following: 

  • Dull skin. 
  • Dry skin. 
  • Acne scarring. 
  • Sun-damaged skin. 
  • Fine lines and wrinkles.

Who Can Benefit from Dermaplaning?

Healthy individuals who are looking for a quick and easy way to improve the look and feel of their skin can benefit from dermaplaning. While dermaplaning is safe for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, it is not recommended if you have active acne in the treatment site, rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, or sunburn. Also, if you are taking the medication isotretinoin for severe acne, you should wait at least six months after you stop taking it to receive dermaplaning. Please schedule a consultation appointment at our office to see if this treatment is right for you.  

The Dermaplaning Treatment

During your dermaplaning appointment, you will lie down on a treatment chair or bed, and your skin will be cleansed. Then, your provider will use a special dermaplaning blade to gently and precisely scrape your skin at a 45-degree angle, removing any dead skin cells and hair. Treatment is generally quick, taking 30 minutes to complete. Once treatment is finished, a soothing substance like aloe will be applied to your skin, as well as sunscreen.

Dermaplaning Results

There is no downtime needed after dermaplaning, which means that you can feel free to resume your regular daily activities right away. Your face may be temporarily red for a few hours after treatment, which will dissipate with time. Be sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen when outdoors and a moisturizer after treatment to protect your skin, as it may be sensitive. Dermaplaning treatments can be repeated every 3-4 weeks to maintain results.
