Dermaplaning 101

Think you need expensive serums or peels to get the kind of skin that glows? Convinced that you need to win the genetic lottery to achieve a perfect complexion?

Good news: You don’t need either to get a radiant, smooth, and younger-looking complexion – you just need dermaplaning treatments.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-surgical treatment that aims to remove dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. What makes dermaplaning so unique – and convenient! – is that this goal is achieved using a surgical scalpel.

During a dermaplaning treatment, the scalpel is positioned at a 45-degree angle and lightly brushed against the surface of your skin. These light and quick feather strokes scrape away dead and dull skin, as well as peach fuzz and impurities that may have collected over time. 

The procedure itself takes just 15 to 20 minutes, with absolutely no downtime required.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is one of Hollywood’s best-kept secrets because it can produce instantly visible results without the downtime or recovery of chemical peels or laser resurfacing. Benefits of routine dermaplaning treatments include:

  • Minimized wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Faded acne and trauma scars
  • Smoother, softer skin
  • Reduced peach fuzz
  • Glowing, radiant skin
  • And more

Additionally, dermaplaning treatments can make it easier for your skincare creams and serums to penetrate to your deeper dermal tissue, leading to more noticeable results.

How Often Should I Get Dermaplaning Treatments?

Dermaplaning treatments are easy to add to a regular skincare routine, as they don’t require the use of chemicals or lasers (in fact, even pregnant and breastfeeding mothers can undergo dermaplaning). 

To see your best results, we recommend scheduling regular dermaplaning treatments every six to eight weeks. Make sure you wear sunscreen immediately after your treatment, as your skin may be a little sensitive to the sun.
