What is Dermaplaning?

This medical grade esthetic technique exfoliates and smoothes skin texture by removing surface level hair and dead cells from the skin with a professional cosmetic tool that looks like a scalpel. While it does remove any vellus facial hairs (peach fuzz) along the way, it is mainly a treatment that improves facial texture and provides a brighter complexion through exfoliation. It leaves the skin smooth and soft, and temporarily removes the fine little hairs that can sometimes keep dead skin cells and impurities trapped at the surface. It is also known as “microplaning” and “blading.”

Skin Benefits

After your dermaplaning session, you can expect to feel a much smoother surface, a brighter complexion, as well as no peach fuzz on the face until it grows back. Dermaplaning also functions as a bit of a primer, so your makeup will show up more evenly with such a smooth skin surface, and your skincare products will be absorbed more effectively. Fine lines and sun damage will be improved. Peach fuzz, facial hair, and dry patches will be removed, revealing softer, brighter, more even skin.

Your esthetician uses either a manual or mechanical scalpel tool held at a 45 degree angle to essentially shave and exfoliate the face. This should continue for about 20 to 30 minutes. Once they have finished, they will apply a soothing lotion, as well as sunscreen for protection.

Dermaplaning Procedure

Dermaplaning is a simple treatment with fabulous results that you will be able to see immediately. When you leave the spa you will be glowing. However, it may take a few days to see the full results.

While the concept might seem scary, dermaplaning is completely painless. You might experience a slight tingling sensation during the process.

Contrary to popular belief, the hair will not grow back thicker or darker than it was previously after dermaplaning. It may feel rougher at first as it starts to grow but this is just because the hair was cut straight across so the hair’s edge is less soft right away. It will be the same colour and texture as before, and it will continue growing at the same speed.

Is dermaplaning painful?

Dermaplaning is a relaxing and pain-free treatment. Your skin will be treated to a complete facial experience including cleansing, exfoliation, masking and a skin massage.

What should i do before Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure. However, like all skincare treatments, it will be important to take care of your skin before and after your session in order to see the best results and to minimize any potential side effects.

Be sure to stop using any at-home exfoliation and peeling products at least 3 to 5 days before your appointment. That includes any retinols, enzymes, scrubs, polishes, or other exfoliating peels or serums. Since dermaplaning is a deep exfoliation treatment, any other exfoliation too soon before might result in “overexfoliation.” This could prompt redness, irritation, acne breakouts, hyperpigmentation, and dry skin.

Avoid direct sun exposure in the 5 to 7 days before your dermaplaning session. Do not receive any Botox or filler injections in the 3 to 4 days before your dermaplaning session. Try to reschedule your appointment if you have open wounds or acne lesions on the day of your dermaplaning session.

What should I do after Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has zero downtime. Slight redness might occur, but not always. Many people book their dermaplaning sessions during their lunch break and return to work. You may want to avoid make up for the rest of the day in order to let your skin breathe a bit after the dermaplaning session. Since your skin barrier will be a little sensitive after your treatment, use a moisturizing cream or a hyaluronic mask to help repair and hydrate your newly exfoliated skin.

Some clients experience developing new whiteheads over the skin that was treated with dermaplaning in first couple of days after their session.

After dermaplaning, it is important to avoid direct sunlight as skin can become more sensitive. Use a sunscreen with an SPF 30 or higher, reapplying generously and frequently.

How often should i get Dermaplaning?

Since this is a deeply exfoliating treatment, book your next dermaplaning treatment at least one month after your last session. Some people with more sensitive skin might stand to benefit from booking their dermaplaning sessions even just once a season.

Dermaplaning results should last for about three weeks to a month. 

What can i expect from Dermaplaning?

You’ll immediately look more radiant with improved skin texture and skin tone. While the main objective of this treatment is exfoliation, the removal of peach fuzz renders the skin exceptionally smooth and soft. Skincare products such as creams and serums will work more efficiently after dermaplaning. Makeup and cosmetics will also look much better on your skin.
