What Is Dermaplaning Treatment?

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation similar in theory to microdermabrasion, but without the use of suction or abrasive crystals. To resurface and exfoliate the skin, leveling out uneven surfaces of the face, a sterile surgical blade is used by a trained medical skincare specialist specifically for this purpose. Dermaplaning is gentle and does not break the capillaries on the face, which more aggressive exfoliators may do. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows for better product penetration, increases absorption of chemical peels while helping to reduce appearance of fine lines and even skin tone.

What is the Dermaplane Procedure?

During a dermaplaning treatment, you’ll first have your makeup removed and face cleansed. Once your face has dried, a small blade is used to exfoliate, remove hair, and smooth away dead skin. Immediately after this painless treatment, you’ll see smoother, more youthful skin!

Can I do Dermaplaning at Home?

Because the blade used for dermaplaning is especially sharp, we don’t recommend that you try this procedure at home. Even the most ambitious at-home self-care routine should opt for having their treatments done by a professional who has been trained with the correct techniques to achieve the best, pain-free results.

Who Should Try this Treatment?

Dermaplaning is recommended for individuals of all skin types, except those with acneic skin. Dermaplaning is a safe exfoliation alternative to chemical peels for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding.

A Dermaplaning treatment can help patients concerned about:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Surface irregularities

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment whether you want a refreshed appearance before an important social event, or you just want to restore a subtle, youthful‐looking shine to your skin. Here are just some of the ways dermaplaning can transform your skin:

  • Hair Removal: After scraping off dead skin cells and the fine, vellus hair (“peach fuzz” or “baby hairs”), the skin is immediately smoother and softer to the touch.
  • Collagen Production: Promoting collagen production helps give your skin a youthful glow, improving the appearance and slowing the process of fine lines and aging.
  • Prevent Breakouts: Removing dead skin cells and improving the penetration of your skin care products helps prevent breakouts.
  • Flawless Makeup Application: Removing dead skin cells, baby hairs, and other things that makeup gets caught on can help your face look smooth and flawless.
  • Penetration of Skin Care Products: The exfoliating process helps skin care products penetrate deeper into the skin.

What’s the Difference Between Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion?

Both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion aim for the same result: healthy, youthful, exfoliated skin. However, both treatments are very different in terms of what the procedure looks like. While dermaplaning is a mild treatment, microdermabrasion is slightly more aggressive. However, it’s still not painful, nor is it dangerous, like some myths say. Microdermabrasion is an excellent procedure for treating various forms of scars, wrinkles, and other skin inconsistencies. However, it won’t remove hair and will typically cause some redness and swelling. Not sure which treatment is right for you?
