While using cleansers and other cosmetics can help achieve a smooth facial appearance, the best and quickest method to achieve this is through the process of dermaplaning.
This cosmetic procedure is very convenient and safe. Here’s everything you need to know about dermaplaning.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment that involves using a blade to shave the dead layer of skin and thin hairs from your face. This process helps deeply exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin.

How does dermaplaning help the skin?

The objective of dermaplaning is to remove the upper layer of skin from your face. This upper layer is comprised of dead skin cells and also holds the tiny hairs known as vellus hairs.

By getting rid of this layer, comprised of dull and dry skin cells, you’re left with the relatively ‘new’ skin which lies under the initial layer. This looks smoother, brighter, and clearer, which is where the benefit is gotten from.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

There are quite a few advantages to dermaplaning. It is a process that can be used for people with any kind of skin type and most people have no reaction to the process.

Here are some of the aesthetic benefits:

  • Can be used to minimize fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Can help treat acne scars, including deeper ones
  • Helps minimize the extent of hyperpigmentation
  • Can help remove pockmarks
  • Improves the appearance of dry skin
  • Eliminates thin hair (peach fuzz)

How long does the procedure take?

Dermaplaning is a relatively quick procedure, and you will usually be able to get it done in about half an hour. This makes it very convenient, especially in addition to the fact that there is essentially no downtime required. You can go straight back to work, school, or other activities.

It can be combined with other procedures, such as chemical peels and specialty masks, as the skin after dermaplaning will absorb the benefits of these additional treatments much better.

When will I see changes?

You see the results from dermaplaning immediately after the procedure is completed.

Am I a suitable candidate?

Dermaplaning is a great treatment for pretty much anyone, as it works great for all skin types and tones. If you have concerns about the texture of your skin, the tone, or acne scars or lines that you might have, then dermaplaning is a good idea for you.

However, the best way for you to know whether this is the right procedure for you is to contact us for a consultation. This way, your skin can be properly assessed, and the most appropriate treatments recommended.
