What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning involves gently scraping away dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). During your session, your aesthetician holds your skin taut and carefully glides a micro-fine scalpel over your skin in upward motions.
Not only does this remove dead skin cells, but it also triggers cell turnover, causing newer, brighter skin cells to appear on the surface of your skin.
How can dermaplaning improve my skin?
Dermaplaning is known for reversing the signs of aging and smoothing out skin in a single session. This state-of-the-art treatment can help improve the appearance of:
- Acne scars
- Lines and wrinkles
- Dark spots
- Large pores
In addition, because dermaplaning removes imperfections and gets rid of peach fuzz immediately, your skincare products can penetrate deeper, allowing them to work more effectively. Your makeup can go on smoother, too.
Am I a candidate for dermaplaning?
As long as you have imperfections you want to improve, you’re most likely a good candidate for dermaplaning. Unlike certain aesthetic treatments, including some laser treatments, it doesn’t matter how dark or light your skin tone is or sensitive your skin gets.
Dermaplaning isn’t for everyone though. Your aesthetician might suggest a different treatment if you have a visible acne breakout or if you have deep scars or wrinkles.
How many dermaplaning sessions do I need?
The beauty of dermaplaning is that you see results immediately, and there is no downtime. Your aesthetician can teach you how to use clinical-grade products at home, so you maintain your smoother, younger-looking skin for as long as possible.
Over time, however, signs of aging can start coming back and your skin can appear dull or lackluster. You can schedule follow-up visits as needed. The more often you come in treatment, the more frequently your cells turn over, which helps you continue looking youthful.
