What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning removes dead cells from the top layer of the skin. This helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduce acne scars, and remove excess oil and dirt buildup. It is most commonly used to prepare the face before cosmetic procedures like facials, microdermabrasion, and laser treatments.

Benefits of dermaplaning

There are many benefits to dermaplaning:

  • It removes dead skin cells from the top layer of your skin.
  • It helps to reveal healthier, younger-looking skin.
  • It’s a safe procedure that can be performed in any salon or spa setting.
  • It’s non-invasive, which means there are no needles involved.
  • The results last up to 3 months.
  • It’s relatively painless, although some people may feel slight discomfort during the process.
  • It can be combined with other aesthetic treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, lasers, and injectables.

Microdermabrasion vs Dermaplaning 

The main difference between microdermabrasion and dermaplaning is that microdermabrasion uses an abrasive material to gently polish the outermost layers of the skin while dermaplaning uses a scalpel or other sharp instrument to remove the upper layers of the skin. The results can be similar but they also have their own unique benefit.

What to expect after a dermaplaning treatment

After a dermaplaning facial, you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Your skin will look smoother, brighter, and healthier than ever before. The procedure itself takes less than 30 minutes, and results last for 3–6 months.

Risks and Side Effects of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is considered safe when performed by a trained aesthetician. However, there may be some minor side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort. These side effects usually go away within 24 hours. If any of these symptoms persist, please contact us immediately.
