All About Dermaplaning FAQ

What is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that promotes glowy and radiant skin while diminishing unwanted blemishes. The procedure consists of exfoliating the epidermis with a medical scalpel and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz. Dermaplaning can be done as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with another aesthetic treatment to enhance results.

How Does it Work?

Dermaplaning works by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, which are constantly regenerating and pushing older skin cells to the surface. Removing this topmost layer releases the bond between these newly generated skin cells, as well as the old ones sitting on top.

The skin is first prepped and then the medical blade is stroked along the skin at a 45-degree angle. Thus, removing the top layer of dead skin cells and revealing a new, smooth, and brighter complexion.

How Long Does Dermaplaning Take

This aesthetic treatment from start to finish takes 30-45 minutes.

What is the Difference Between Dermaplaning and a Chemical Peel

Dermaplaning does not use chemicals or acids to improve the skin’s appearance. However, chemical peels (Facial Peel) rely on exfoliating agents to remove dead cells from the dermis. Both procedures exfoliate the top layer of skin leaving behind a radiant and youthful glow.

Will My Facial Hair Grow Back Thicker and Darker

The answer is no. Dermaplaning does not interfere with the follicular structure of the hair, thus, having no effect on the hair growth pattern. The fine vellus hair grows back slowly and normally takes up to 4 weeks to grow back.

How Will My Skin Benefit from Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a great anti-aging aesthetic treatment. Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen and elastin fibers. This procedure smoothes, tones, tightens, as well as brightening the skin’s surface.

Benefits include lessening the appearance of acne scarring, sun damage or hyperpigmentation, and fine lines and wrinkles.

How Often Should I Get Dermaplaning Done

Dermaplaning treatments are typically scheduled every 3-4 weeks. This is only a suggested treatment schedule and your skincare or MedSpa specialist may have another recommended schedule for you. The skin takes 30 days to complete a normal cycle which is why it is recommended to wait this amount of time between procedures.

Who is the Best Candidate

Ideal clients have aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tones. If you are interested in dermaplaning it is important to see how your skin reacts to the procedure before booking any future appointments. These clients typically have normal skin that is not sensitive or prone to breakouts.

Dermaplaining helps prevent and diminish these imperfections:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine vellus facial hair (peach fuzz)
  • Uneven & rough skin
  • Dull skin
