Dermaplaning Explained

A Safe, Affordable, Minimally-Invasive Solution to Dull-Looking Skin

Have you heard of this non-invasive beauty trend? Dermaplaning is a simple and effective method of exfoliation that gets rid of dead skin cells, debris, and fine hairs fast for smoother, more radiant looking skin. And at only 30 minutes per session, this treatment will undoubtedly be something you tell your friends about!

What Is Dermaplaning?

Think of Dermaplaning like the ultimate solution in high trend exfoliation that is completely safe, easy, non-invasive, and affordable. In fact, many clients find this treatment to be a relaxing process.

Unlike some chemical peels and other acid-based treatments, Dermaplaning is a beauty treatment that doesn’t cause discomfort or result in a need for downtime. It also doesn’t break the bank – the average cost of a Dermaplaning treatment is only $125.

The procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes, is completely painless and is an effective method of total skin improvement. During your session, our skincare specialist will use a medical grade scalpel to gently remove the top layers of dead skin cells that clog pores, contributes to uneven skin tone, and overall make the skin look dull. Using a scalpel and surgical blade allows for precision when scraping along the skin’s surface that ultimately results in a smoother, brighter complexion.

Another great benefit is that the procedure eliminates stubborn peach fuzz that cakes up in foundation and concealer. Without the fine hairs, your skin will feel incredibly soft, and your makeup will appear smoother and more even.

How Long Do the Results of Dermaplaning Last?

The results of Dermaplaning can last for a few weeks to about a month, though this varies from one person to the next as everyone’s skin cell rejuvenation cycle is different. Facial skin will typically completely regenerate around every 20-45 days making this the optimal time for a treatment.

Dermaplaning is a treatment that can be safely done every 4-6 weeks. Dermaplaning your skin too much could result in some mild irritation, redness, and discomfort. Once a month to every month and a half is just about right to reap the benefits of this hot beauty treatment.

Who is Dermaplaning Best Suited For?

Almost everyone! The only individuals who aren’t great candidates for Dermaplaning procedures are those with ongoing cystic acne issues. To avoid causing more damage, you will need to treat the affected areas first before committing to a Dermaplaning routine.

There are some other minor precautions to consider prior to your Dermaplaning treatment.

Refrain from getting this treatment if you…

  • Were recently exposed to direct sunlight;
  • Recently tanned in a sunbed;
  • Are currently being treated with Accutane;
  • Are taking blood thinners; and,
  • Have active acne; cold sores, or other open skin lesions.

Who Should Administer This Treatment?

Only a certified skincare specialist or licensed aesthetician who specializes in these types of procedures should be administering the treatment. Although minimally-invasive, the procedure is still performed using a medical grade scalpel and blade and could cause skin damage if not properly administered.

To get a better sense of their experience, you can always ask how long they’ve been administering Dermaplaning to their patients. Some may even have portfolios you can peruse to gauge results.

Dermaplaning FAQs

Does Hair Grow Back Thicker and Darker?

This is one we hear a lot, and the answer is no. Your hair’s growth rate and thickness will stay the same as it were prior to your treatment, no matter how many treatments you get. You may even find that some of those tiny fine hairs may stop growing back altogether, which let’s face it, is a great side effect! Your skin will remain smooth and even, and bumps and sun spots will eventually fade away as well from the excellent in-depth exfoliation that Dermaplaning provides.

Are There Any Other Side Effects to Worry About?

No. There are certainly no extreme side effects to worry about with the Dermaplaning treatment because it doesn’t use any chemicals or other skincare products on the skin. It’s a genuinely wonderful method of non-chemical exfoliation that you can enjoy without any pain, discomfort, or unwanted side effects.

Is There Really Zero Downtime?

Yes! You can go right back to your daily routine immediately following the beauty treatment. You can even swim, apply makeup, and go to the gym the next day.

Important! A Quick Note on Freshly Exfoliated Skin

Make sure you use SPF 30 every day. When you exfoliate your skin, it will be more sensitive to sun exposure, so wearing a daily broad-spectrum SPF is extremely important to ensure it’s protected.
