Dermaplaning: An Exciting New Way to Exfoliate Your Face

Dermaplaning is a type of skin treatment that skims hair and dead skin cells from your face with an exfoliating blade. It’s also referred to as blading or microplaning.

The goal of dermaplaning is to make the surface of your skin youthful, smooth, and radiant. It can help eliminate uneven pockmarks and deep acne scarring on your skin. Many individuals also use it to remove unwanted “peach fuzz” (soft, short hairs) on their faces.

Anyone of any skin type can use dermaplaning to help with:

  • Dry skin
  • Acne scars
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Sun-damaged skin
  • Dull skin

The Reason Dermaplaning is so Effective

Getting rid of old skin cells helps to exfoliate your skin and unclog pores. When your skin’s outer layer is gone, it reveals a healthier, new layer. This new layer of skin is free of hair, oil, and dirt, leaving you with a more noticeable brighter complexion.

Dermaplaning helps with:

  • Ingrown hair removal
  • Cellular turnover
  • Dust particle removal
  • Acne prevention

It also diminishes the look of wrinkles and fine lines and enhances the absorption of skin products.

It exfoliates skin deeply and removes facial hair. You are worried about having darker, coarser hair grow back after this process, but this isn’t a concern with dermaplaning. It doesn’t change hair growth and won’t cause whiskers to grow on your face.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

All skin colors and types can benefit from this procedure. The only case where dermaplaning might not be recommended is when there’s active pustular acne. It’s essential you know dermaplaning is similar to a facial maintenance treatment. Therefore, keep in mind, since your skin makes a whole new layer every six weeks, dermaplaning will provide you with the best outcome if you repeat the treatment every four to six weeks.

What to Expect With Dermaplaning

There’s no downtime or recovery period with dermaplaning. You might feel as though your skin was scraped in the few days following your procedure or you might experience redness. You might notice a brighter appearance of your skin right after your dermaplaning procedure, but it typically takes several days to really notice the full results. As any redness on your skin begins subsiding, you’ll begin noticing more clearer results in the days following.
