Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It also removes “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face. Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- fine wrinkles
How Dermaplaning Works
If you look at the tool used for dermaplaning treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair. The basic concept of dermaplaning is the same as shaving. By aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across your skin, you remove dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may be making your skin’s surface look uneven. Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull, and it can make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells, so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
Exfoliation For Glowing Skin
Dermaplaning offers a deep exfoliation that effectively removes built-up dead skin cells, debris, and impurities, leaving your skin smooth, soft, and glowing. By revealing a fresh layer of skin, this treatment stimulates cell turnover and promotes a youthful, rejuvenated appearance.
Improved Skincare Product Absorption
After dermaplaning, your skin becomes an ideal canvas for skincare products. By removing the barrier of dead skin cells and peach fuzz, your skin can absorb serums, moisturizers, and other products more effectively. This enhances the overall efficacy of your skincare routine, allowing you to achieve optimal results.
Reduction Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Dermaplaning can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. By exfoliating the outer layer of the skin, this treatment encourages collagen production and promotes a smoother, more youthful complexion.
- No activities a week before to maximize the effectiveness of our treatments. We recommend avoiding the use of any active skincare products, such as retinoids, exfoliants, or acids, for at least one week prior to your appointment.
- Clean skin: Remove any makeup, dirt, or excess oils by gently cleansing your face beforehand. This allows us to have a clear canvas to work with and helps achieve the best results.
- No activities a week after. It’s crucial to avoid using any active skincare products for at least one week. Actives can potentially irritate the skin or interfere with the healing process.
- Makeup after 24 hours: Only wear makeup 24 hours after your treatment. Be gentle while applying and removing makeup to avoid any unnecessary irritation.
