What is Dermaplaning?

non-invasive exfoliation

Like microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is a specific kind of skin rejuvenation treatment that removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz from your face. However, instead of a machine or chemicals, our aestheticians use a scalpel to scrape away the top skin layers of dead cells carefully. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure involving a sharp tool that exfoliates the surface of your skin and removes small hairs. A surgical scalpel is sterilized before it gently shaves the skin and removes the top-most layer of dead skin and the vellus hair, known as peach fuzz. Also known as micro planing or blading, dermaplaning is only performed on the face with some exceptions such as the nose or terminal hairs on the eyebrows.

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

smooth your skin texture

As with other skin rejuvenation treatments designed to exfoliate your skin deeply, Dermaplaning smooths out your skin texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines, shallow wrinkles, and even some acne scars. This process serves to even out your skin tone resulting in a brighter, younger appearance. Men tend to look younger than their age in part because they shave regularly. Shaving is important because it exfoliates your skin by removing dead cells. Dermaplaning gets rid of dead skin and allows new skin cells to regenerate. That’s a great benefit! Here are the biggest benefits of a dermaplaning procedure:

  • No downtime
  • Non-abrasive
  • Youthful appearance
  • Painless and quick procedure
  • Soft and smooth skin after the procedure
  • Eradicates “peach fuzz” and facial hair
  • Exfoliates your skin and eliminates dead skin cells
  • Easily put on makeup on your new, smoother skin
  • Reduce the effects of fine lines and hyperpigmentation
  • The treatment uses an instrument that is sharper and goes deeper than any store blade

Am I a good candidate for Dermaplaning?

effective skin treatment

Dermaplaning is such an effective treatment in part because it works on people of all types, even those with overwhelmingly sensitive skin. However, if you are susceptible to acne, particularly due to oily skin, this procedure is not recommended. This is because the peach fuzz, or vellus hair, is needed to excrete oil from your face.

Dermaplaning Recovery

immediately return to regular activities

You can immediately return to your regular daily activities after treatment, although you may notice that your skin might be pink or reddish for about an hour or so. It is possible your skin may become irritated and develop a rash, but using a strong moisturizer or even hydrocortisone cream should soothe the problem area.

Dermaplaning Results

reduce lines, wrinkles and scars

You will notice a brighter, more even skin tone and texture after your treatment, which can last up to 3-4 weeks. For longer and better results, it’s best to have a series of treatments, which can also reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.

Your Dermaplaning Procedure

simple, effective treatment

Dermaplaning is quite a straightforward procedure. As there is no pain involved, there’s no need for any numbing cream to be applied. Instead, it begins by swabbing your skin with alcohol to remove any excess oil on your face. Once that is done, your aesthetician will stretch the skin on your face one small area at a time. This stretching serves to make your skin taut, which allows us to then use short, quick strokes of the scalpel to scrape away dead skin and hair. The entire procedure should take no more than half an hour.

Dermaplaning Frequently Asked Questions

No. There is no numbing or anesthesia required. It’s possible your skin may become irritated from the scraping, but using a moisturizer on the affected spot should soothe any discomfort.

It does not. This is a common misconception, but your peach fuzz and coarser facial hair will grow back at the same rate as before.

If you do not choose a Med Spa with a team trained on proper Dermaplaning techniques, you may get minor nicks or cuts. This is why it’s important to choose an experienced team of aesthetic professionals. In addition, Dermaplaning and other exfoliating procedures may lead to a flare-up for cold sores if you are not currently medicated for them, so make sure to inform your doctor.

The price of Dermaplaning depends on whether or not you have a single treatment or get a package that includes several, or if you have another treatment done at the same time. The starting price can range from $100-$250.

Because this is an elective procedure, your insurance probably will not cover it.

Other exfoliating treatments for your face include microdermabrasion, microneedling, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels. These all involve using devices or chemicals as part of the treatment process.
