Dermaplaning is a painless, noninvasive way to deeply exfoliate the skin and remove dead skin cells and the fine peach fuzz commonly found on the face. During the treatment, which only takes about 30 minutes from start to finish, the aesthetician uses a scalpel to gently scrape away the most outer layer of the skin. Even though a scalpel is being used, the sensation is just pressure, much like when you use a razor blade to shave. As the dead skin cells, dirt and oil are removed, the new, brighter skin below is revealed for a smoother texture and more even skin tone.
In addition to giving you a brighter, smoother complexion, dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars and help prevent future breakouts by removing the natural oils and dirt that can clog pores and lead to blackheads and acne. It also turns your skin into the perfect canvas for more detailed makeup looks that involve contouring.
Customizable Treatments For Improved Texture And Tone
If you’re looking for an even deeper exfoliation or have some other issues you’d like to address with your dermaplaning treatment, you can combine this procedure with a chemical peel or the popular Hydrafacial. Chemical peels that address hyperpigmentation, scarring and wrinkles are able to penetrate deeply into the skin after a dermaplaning treatment, giving you better results. And pairing your treatment with a Hydrafacial adds more moisture back into the skin after exfoliation and offers additional benefits, such as extracting your pores with less post-procedure irritation.
