Dermaplaning is a popular facial treatment with two main benefits: removing fine vellus hair (unwanted peach fuzz) and exfoliating the skin to create a smoother, healthier, more radiant complexion.
Dermaplaning is a skin exfoliation treatment that uses a small, blade-like surgical tool to very gently and carefully remove dead, dry skin and facial hair. No chemicals are used in this simple, safe procedure, and once completed, only beautiful, smooth, glowing skin is left behind.
Your skin will be cleansed to remove any dirt and oil, and will then be prepped. The manual process of dermaplaning will begin using a very small surgical blade. This process doesn’t hurt at all, as the strokes are very gentle and light. Treatment focuses on small areas one at a time, and most patients describe this as feeling like light scrubbing or shaving. Although your skin will be smoother and brighter after just one dermaplaning treatment, we recommend treatments every 2 to 4 weeks until the skin is flawless for best results.
There is virtually no downtime with dermaplaning, but there may be some redness in the treated area for the rest of the day. We recommend not wearing makeup for the remainder of the day after treatment.
A good moisturizer or a hyaluronic mask following your dermaplaning procedure will keep your skin from drying out, and be sure to protect your skin with a gentle sunscreen of at least SPF 30 for one week after treatment.
Some patients experience redness, dryness, and flaky skin after dermaplaning, but these typically only occur if the patient is not following the doctor’s instructions.
Dermaplaning is an excellent option for those who want softer, smoother, healthier skin without the use of chemicals. It is an especially great choice for those who are unhappy with their vellus hair (peach fuzz). If you have particularly sensitive skin, active acne, or pustular rosacea, we do not recommend this treatment.
