Every day, your skin is exposed to dirt, oils, and environmental pollutants. Vellus hair—the fine, blonde fuzz on the face—traps dirt and oil in the follicles, causing acne and skin irritation. Dermaplaning removes the dead skin and fine hairs to allow products to penetrate more readily. This treatment may also help smooth fine lines and wrinkles and even out skin tone.
We often recommend dermaplaning before medical procedures like laser treatments or chemical peels. Dermaplaning helps prepare the skin and will help produce optimal results.
Dermaplaning uses a scalpel or surgical blade to delicately remove the outermost layers of hair and dead skin. Your provider will first cleanse your face. They will then gently scrape the blade over your face at an angle, removing dead skin and fine hairs. This procedure may cause a noticeable textural improvement without downtime, and clients will appreciate the near-instant gratification.
Treatments are recommended approximately every four weeks to accommodate the normal skin growth cycle.
There is no recovery time associated with dermaplaning. Your skin may be slightly red and sensitive after your treatment, but these side effects should fade quickly. Be sure to protect your skin from the sun and avoid products that may irritate your skin.
Your skin will look smoother and healthier immediately after your treatment. Skincare products, such as serums and moisturizers, will be absorbed more easily. Over time, some patients may also notice a reduction in fine lines and acne scarring.
