Skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a medical scalpel to gently exfoliate the outer layer of dead skin cells and remove fine facial hair commonly known as “peach fuzz”, technically called “vellus” hair.
It can be used as an alternative to laser treatments and microdermabrasion or along with them for an enhanced result. This procedure will give your skin a more radiant appearance. Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper in turn making them more effective.
How to Prepare?
Dermaplaning takes around 30 minutes.
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. We recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen of at least SPF 30 and a moisturizer afterward. That’s because your skin may be more sensitive.
You can do dermaplaning every 3 to 4 weeks. But it’s important to remember that its often done as a combined service with other treatments.
The ideal candidate for dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of superficial scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation with continued treatments. More commonly this is an adjunct to other treatments to help develop smooth skin.
This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an properly trained skincare professional. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.
Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but dermaplaning is entirely painless.
Hyperkeratosis is a build up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sun spots and environmental damage.
