What is a dermaplaning facial?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure is used to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smoother. This facial treatment will allow products and laser therapies to penetrate into the skin more effectively. A dermaplaning facial can work alone or in combination with other therapies to treat fine lines, peach fuzz hair, and pigmentation irregularities.

Dermaplaning removes dead skin and light peach fuzz from your face, revealing physically smoother skin that in result will be brighter and have a more even texture. If you have sensitive skin and are unable to receive facials, dermaplaning is a less irritating option that is more effective than some exfoliants. Stop any retinoid medication before having this treatment done two weeks prior to your appointment as it may cause irritation and discomfort.

Who is this facial treatment for?

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim over dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading. It aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. Indeed, this facial treatment removes deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face. Which will allow your makeup to sit better on the skin.

Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:

  • acne scars
  • dull skin
  • dry skin
  • sun-damaged skin
  • fine wrinkles

What to expect from a dermaplaning facial treatment?

During a dermaplaning procedure, you shouldn’t feel any pain. You may feel a tingling sensation during the treatment. The esthetician uses a dermaplaning tool to scrape over the skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes.

After the treatment is finished, the esthetician will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face.
