What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment. It can be performed as a standalone treatment or add on to another procedure, such as facial or chemical peel. The esthetician uses a small scalpel to exfoliate the surface of the skin and remove small, fine hairs on the face. Dermaplaning is recommended every 4-6 weeks, depending on how quickly the hair grows back.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

  • Immediate exfoliation
  • Smoother and dewy complexion
  • Better skincare product absorption
  • Removal of dead skin cells and peach fuzz
  • Improved skin texture
  • Faster cell turnover rate
  • Better alternative than other exfoliating treatments for sensitive skin

Does a Dermaplaning Treatment Hurt?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive and pain-free treatment. Depending on your skin sensitivity, there may be slight redness following the treatment, but this typically resolves in a few hours

Contraindications to Dermaplaning Treatment

  • Clients with eczema and psoriasis should not undergo dermaplaning
  • Avoid this treatment if you have active or cystic acne. This treatment could spread bacteria across the face making acne worse.
  • This treatment is unsafe if there are open lesions, cuts, wounds, or sunburn on the face
