Dermaplaning Treatment FAQs

Dermaplaning is a facial exfoliation treatment that uses a blade to remove the top layer of skin. It can be used on the face, neck, and chest.

Dermaplaning can improve the appearance of skin by removing dead skin cells and hair. It can also help products penetrate the skin more effectively.

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or  uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.

This treatment is extremely safe when performed by an properly trained skincare professional. There is no more risk to the skin than when you shave your legs. There is also no downtime associated with this procedure.

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but Dermaplaning is entirely painless. There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes  heal within 24-48 hours.

No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.

Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.

Both options are a form of physical exfoliation. Dermaplaning removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin cells from the skin, microdermabrasion also exfoliate the surface of the skin, but not as thoroughly or deeply as dermaplaning does.

Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or dull skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age. Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels. (Peels penetrate skin to act at the cellular level, thus are contraindicated when pregnant.) Those with very oily or active acne should avoid this procedure as well as anyone with thick, dark facial hair. However you can even have it if you’re currently using Retin-A or Accutane.

Dermaplaning may also cause skin irritation for some people.

Most people need to get dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks.

The results of dermaplaning can last up to 2 weeks.

After your first treatment, you may notice that your skin is smoother and brighter. You may also experience a mild skin redness. This is normal and will fade within a few hours.
