Dermaplaning is the process of using a sharp blade on the face to scrape off the top layer of the skin. Removing the top layer of skin is considered a physical or mechanical method of exfoliation.
The skin is given a brighter complexion and increases absorption of topical products, which immediately diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and also primes skin for a chemical peel.
The benefits of this treatment are many, one of which removes vellus hairs (the soft, baby fine hairs). Vellus hair removal makes the skin feel smoother, creating a healthier and more radiant appearance.
Dermaplaning is typically performed on the face, under the chin and the neck area. First, all areas of the face will be properly cleansed. A trained skincare aesthetician then takes a 10 gauge scalpel, holding it at 45 degree angle, and gently scrapes off the top layer of dead cells.
Once the treatment is done, a hydrating or moisturizing mask will be applied to the area. In order to maintain a healthy glowing skin, and all the benefits of Dermaplaning, it’s recommended to have this treatment done every three to four weeks. Each session will remove around two to three weeks worth of dead skin cells.
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning, unless the client has a large amount of open spots or sores. If there are open spots or sores it is best to wait for them to clear up.
Dermaplaning can help people who have skin conditions such as acne scars, oily skin or hirsute (excessive hair growth) When booking an appointment be sure to choose a reputable spa with a trained and certified aesthetician.
