What Is Dermaplaning

Are you looking for a non-invasive treatment for skin issues such as wrinkles, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation? Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that can help keep your complexion looking bright and luminous. But what exactly is dermaplaning and how does it work.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skin exfoliation treatment in which a sterile surgical blade is used to remove fine facial hair (aka vellus hair or peach fuzz), and dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. When done by a medical professional, dermaplaning is safe for all skin types (learn more).

What should you expect during dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a simple, relaxing treatment that takes about 45 minutes to complete. During the procedure the doctor or medical aesthetician will hold the skin firmly and gently move the blade across the surface, to shave away the vellus hair.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Dermaplaning is a comfortable, pain-free treatment. The treatment is done using very light strokes, so patients generally don’t feel anything at all.

Is there any downtime after dermaplaning?

There is no downtime after dermaplaning, so patients can resume normal activities immediately after treatment. However, the skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so patients are advised to use an effective sunblock.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

  • Improves skin tone and texture.
  • Leaves the skin smooth and baby soft.
  • Minimizes the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
  • Brightens the complexion.
  • Helps skin care products absorb a whole lot better.
  • Makeup goes on the skin much smoother because the vellus hair is removed.
