Dermaplaning is a skin exfoliation procedure that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to smooth the surface of the skin and remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz hairs. The scalpel is held at a 45-degree angle and is moved along the skin to remove the hair and skin cells.
Dermaplaning is can done on the face and neck, is not suitable for shaping the eyebrows, as brow hairs are much thicker. It is typically a stand-alone procedure, but it does create deeper product penetration boosting other products and treatment effects. The dermaplaning procedure makes skin look and feel smoother while reducing the appearance of acne scars and fine lines.

How Often Should Dermaplaning Be Done?

How to Prepare for Dermaplaning?
Make sure to make an appointment with your esthetician before dermaplaning so that they can cleanse your face and apply an appropriate medically-approved product to prepare the skin before the procedure is done.
How Does Dermaplaning Feel?
Dermaplaning is not a painful procedure, most of my clients find it extremely relaxing some redness can be immediate depending on how much your skin will be exfoliated.
Dermaplaning can feel similar to that of a facial shave. The skin can feel a bit itchy and warm after the procedure.
What Can You Expect After Your Procedure?
Immediately after your procedure, your face can feel a little sensitive. If you are going to the gym, it is best to schedule your appointment after your session.
Your skin may feel and look a bit red after the procedure. This is entirely normal and this redness should subside within a day or so.
You will be required to apply a good moisturiser and not expose your skin to the sun for 72 hours after the procedure.
It is recommended that you avoid smoking before and after the procedure as it can increase the risk of infection.
If you have any questions or concerns about dermaplaning, please consult your esthetician before the treatment.
What Are the Side Effects of Dermaplaning?
There will be some redness and a bit of swelling. The good news is that these effects are only temporary.
Is Dermaplaning Safe for You?
Dermaplaning is a safe procedure as it does not create any cuts or scratches on the skin. There is no risk of allergy or infection, as the scalpel is used only once and is then disposed of.
Dermaplaning is a great treatment option for those who are looking for immediate results that brighten your skin with the bonus of removing hair from the face. Dermaplaning is a safe and effective procedure that helps to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the face.
Dermaplaning can help make the skin look younger and smoother, as well as reduce acne scars, fine lines, and blemishes. Dermaplaning can be done at any esthetician’s clinic, but it is always best to check their licence and accreditation before choosing your esthetician.
