Dermaplaning: Should I do it?

May 18, 2022
Dermaplaning is an aesthetician performed skincare treatment that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to manually remove the outermost layer of dead skin cells and any peach fuzz present on the face.

The goal of dermaplaning is to leave the skin with a smooth, soft surface and can also help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. For dermaplaning to be safely and effectively performed, it is important to only visit trained professionals in sterile environments.

•   What Happens During Dermaplaning?
Before beginning the dermaplaning treatment, your aesthetician will thoroughly cleanse your face. Once your skin is clean, they will hold the skin tight and move the surgical scalpel in a gentle back and forth motion across the surface of your skin.

You may feel a slight scratching sensation as the scalpel removes the outermost layer of skin cells and peach fuzz, but this is normal. The entire treatment usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete.

Immediately following dermaplaning, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so applying sunscreen before going outdoors is necessary.

Additionally, avoid using any products that contain exfoliating ingredients for at least one week after treatment to allow your skin time to heal.

•   Is Dermaplaning Right For Me?
If you are interested in improving the overall appearance of your skin, dermaplaning may be a good option for you. This treatment can leave your skin feeling smooth and soft while also helping to diminish the look of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

However, it is important to consult with a trained professional before undergoing dermaplaning to ensure that the treatment suits your specific skin type.
