Dermaplaning Q & A
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that has been around for nearly 35 years. It is a light shaving of facial skin and peach fuzz using a rounded-tip blade. Your esthetician will glide the blade against tightly pulled skin for a gentle exfoliation and removal of fine hair and dead skin, leaving you with a smooth and glowing complexion.
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
As one of the most requested services, there are multiple benefits of dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is an effective exfoliation method and an alternative for those who do not wish to get facials or chemical peels. Additionally, there is no downtime with dermaplaning and your skin is able to absorb products at a faster rate, leaving your skin soft and smooth.
Who should consider dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning can be done on any skin type. However, those with deep acne scarring should avoid dermaplaning, as it may increase your chance of nicking skin if there is significant unevenness to the surface.
How long do results last?
Dermaplaning can last up to six months and treatments are typically performed every six weeks, depending on your skin condition and your esthetician’s recommendation.
Is dermaplaning safe? Are there any risks?
Yes, dermaplaning is safe when performed by a trained esthetician. However, due to the effective exfoliation, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun and therefore wearing a daily SPF is essential.
