What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning offers several benefits for the skin:


  1. Exfoliation: Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells and surface debris, promoting cellular turnover and revealing fresh, radiant skin underneath.

  2. Smoothing: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning can improve the texture of the skin, making it smoother and softer to the touch.

  3. Enhanced Product Absorption: Exfoliating the skin with dermaplaning allows skincare products to penetrate more deeply, maximizing their effectiveness.

  4. Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Dermaplaning can help minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting collagen production and smoothing the skin's surface.

  5. Peach Fuzz Removal: Dermaplaning effectively removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face, resulting in a smoother complexion and enhancing makeup application.

  6. Brightening: By removing dull, dead skin cells, dermaplaning can help brighten the skin and improve overall skin tone and complexion.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermaplaning

What should I expect before and after my Dermaplaning treatment?

At the appointment, the clinician will gently pull your skin tightly and lightly glide the blade in an upward motion using delicate, feathering strokes. A dermaplaning treatment usually takes under 30 minutes and can be done as a stand-alone option or as a part of a facial. It’s best to avoid exfoliating your skin 3 days before. You should also try to avoid direct sunlight or tanning. There’s no downtime needed to let your skin heal. Experts recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a moisturizer afterward. That’s because your skin may be more sensitive. While results certainly aren’t permanent, you can expect them to last anywhere from two weeks to a month. You can do dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks.

How does Dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning and shaving your face are very similar, but the main difference is that dermaplaning (again, performed by a licensed professional) delivers a more thorough exfoliation.
