DERMAPLANING

SKIN MAINTANANCE

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called micro-planning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.

DERMAPLANING FACTS

  • Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth.

  • Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects when it’s performed by a certified dermatologist.

  • This procedure doesn’t require any downtime for recovery, which makes it extremely convenient. The most difficult part may be finding a trained provider who can administer this treatment.

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE*

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help with concerns of acne scars, fine lines, and superficial hyperpigmentation. The procedure is not ideal for oily skin or active acne.

*A medical history form should be filled out to rule out any contraindications.


KEY BENEFITS

  • It removes the things that clog your pores and cause breakouts, such as dirt.

  • By cleaning them out, dermaplaning reduces the appearance of pores.

  • It makes your skin feel smooth and looks bright.

  • It helps to reduce the appearance of signs of aging.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING

  • During a dermaplaning procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment.

  • First, you’ll lie down on your provider’s chair in a clean, comfortable room. Sedation options may be available, and these often include a numbing spray or local anesthesia combined with an oral sedative or rarely general anesthesia.

  • After you’re relaxed, your provider will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as your provider gently works to exfoliate the skin.

WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER

  • You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in two or three days right after the procedure.

  • You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.

  • Results of dermaplaning aren’t permanent. The procedure claims to clear away up to three weeks’ worth of dead skin cells. After three weeks to a month, your results will have faded.

  • After a dermaplaning treatment, you’ll need to be extra careful about sun exposure. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning or create pigment blotches on your freshly uncovered skin cells. In the weeks after a dermaplaning treatment, don’t leave the house without wearing sunscreen on your face.
