FAQs and Answers About Dermaplaning

Tired of acne scars, fine lines, and dull, dry skin? If you feel like your skin is stuck in a rut, it’s time to try something different. Dermaplaning is a safe and effective method of revitalizing your skin. After your appointment, your skin will feel smoother, and look younger and refreshed!

How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is performed with a medical tool. Some beauty salons use electronic devices, while others use manual ones. The esthetician will apply the sterile tool to the skin at a 45-degree angle. Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells from the top layers of skin, along with scar tissue and any debris that may be clogging up your pores. As an added bonus, dermaplaning also removes the vellus hair, which is the peach fuzz on the face that ladies often struggle to get rid of.

How is dermaplaning different from other exfoliation methods? 

Other methods of exfoliation, such as at-home facial scrubs, won’t remove the stubborn peach fuzz from the face. Dermaplaning is also unique in that its removal of the top layer of skin, combined with the unclogging of the pores, allows post-dermaplaning treatments to deeply penetrate the skin. After performing the dermaplaning portion of your appointment, your esthetician can apply a combination of antioxidants, peptides, growth factors, and moisturizers to the skin, allowing these essential nutrients to deeply nourish your skin.

What does dermaplaning feel like?

Another benefit of dermaplaning is that it’s not painful at all! You’ll likely feel a slight tingling sensation. Some people compare the sensation to that of a cat licking the skin. You might even find yourself dozing off during your treatment!

Is there any downtime?

No, you can return to your usual activities right away. Your face may be slightly pink, but this should diminish very rapidly. You’ll be able to apply makeup immediately after your appointment.
