What is a Dermaplaning treatment?

Dermaplaning treatment, also referred to as microplaning or blading, is a non-invasive exfoliation procedure that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin cells, scar tissue, and “peach fuzz” on your face. With that in mind, dermaplaning works on dead skin cells, scar tissue, and the tiny, soft hairs on your face in the same way that a razor is used to shave away unwanted body hair. The procedure should not cause you to feel any pain, although you may feel a tingling sensation as the blade moves across your skin.

How long does a Dermaplaning treatment last?

On average, a dermaplaning treatment session lasts approximately 30 minutes from start to finish. Moreover, there is no downtime or recovery period required after the dermaplaning treatment is complete, meaning that you can return to work or resume your daily routine without any complications after you leave the clinic.

The process of a dermaplaning treatment session is fairly straightforward. First, your provider will ask you to lie back in a chair or padded table in a clean and comfortable room. They will then conduct a facial analysis to determine areas of your face to target with dermaplaning treatment. If you wish, you can ask for numbing spray or local anesthesia to be administered to minimize any discomfort during the procedure, which will be minimal. After cleaning your face and when you are ready, your provider will proceed to gently scrape away dead skin cells, scar tissue, peach fuzz, and other debris from your face.

Once the procedure is over, your provider may also provide a soothing moisturizer to your face, such as aloe, in addition to sunscreen to protect your skin from sun damage. Your skin may slightly peel after dermaplaning. However, this effect is completely normal and temporary.

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

There is a wide range of benefits to having a dermaplaning procedure done! The procedure itself is quick, convenient, non-invasive, and relatively inexpensive. Moreover, dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and highly effective with instant results. In terms of what it can do for your skin, dermaplaning can provide the following benefits:

  • Boosts the effects of skincare products by enabling deeper penetration into the skin
