Does your skin look dull or uneven? The outer layers of your skin are made up of dead cells that form a barrier against environmental damage. However, a buildup of these dead layers can lead to skin that looks lifeless and rough. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive way to brighten and refresh your skin while eliminating unwanted “peach fuzz” for a smooth, even surface. 

What is Dermaplaning?

While you have many options for facial rejuvenation, dermaplaning remains a simple but highly effective way to achieve your desired results. This treatment provides a form of manual exfoliation, which means it removes dull, lifeless skin cells for a fresher, smoother surface. This treatment does not use any form of laser or heat energy, making it safe for almost everyone, and it can improve a wide range of skin concerns.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

During dermaplaning, your skincare expert will use a tool with a sharp, sterile blade that moves gently across your skin at a 45-degree angle. The gentle scraping motion removes dead layers of skin, peach fuzz, and pore-clogging debris. You will notice that your skin immediately looks brighter and clearer. With repeated treatments, you can see improvements in issues like fine lines, uneven skin tone, and mild pigmentation concerns. 

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

If you are looking for a rejuvenating facial that will not interfere with your daily activities, dermaplaning may be ideal for you. This treatment has several advantages that make it popular for those who want to stop in, receive a quick boost to their skin, and return to their day looking refreshed and bright. 

Gentle and Non-Invasive

This treatment does not leave any marks on your skin, and you will not feel any discomfort during treatment, which usually takes about 30 minutes

Less Expensive

Dermaplaning is typically less expensive per treatment than many other options, making it a convenient way to maintain your smooth, bright results. 

No Downtime Required

Your skin may look slightly flushed after dermaplaning, but usually for less than half an hour. You can return to your regular activities immediately, but wear sunscreen.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Almost any healthy adult can have dermaplaning. This gentle treatment is safe for sensitive skin, and because it is performed by hand, it can be tailored to your needs. Good candidates are usually looking for a quick, convenient way to smooth and refresh their skin. You should not have dermaplaning if you have inflammatory skin conditions like allergic reactions, eczema, or active acne in the area.
