How Does Dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning treatments

Dermaplaning uses a medical-grade surgical blade with short strokes to remove the surface layer of dead skin, debris, and hair. A single dermaplaning session can remove around 2-3 weeks of built-up dead skin cells and debris from your skin. Since the blade is held at a very precise angle and light, feathering strokes are used. There is no worry about scratching or piercing the skin making dermaplaning completely pain-free and non-invasive.

The technique may look similar to shaving, but it is much more effective because the blade being used can get right against the top layer of skin. The hair will not grow back darker because dermaplaning targets the vellus hair (peach fuzz) that comes back the same size and color. Also, the way the surgical blade cuts the hair does not create the illusion of thicker hair.

Frequently asked questions about Dermaplaning

Am I a good candidate?
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.
Is the treatment safe?
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.
Does it hurt? Will it cause cuts?
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.
Will it make the hair on my face grow back thicker and darker?
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.
What is the benefit of adding a chemical peel with Dermaplaning?
Hyperkeratosis is a build-up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sunspots, and environmental damage.
How long is the treatment? How often can I have it done?
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.
What is the difference between dermaplaning and microdermabrasion?
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.
