What is Dermaplaning?

A revolutionary method for replenishing the natural glow of your skin. A dermaplaning facial uses an ultrafine blade to gently remove dead skin cells, and fine “peach fuzz”.  Here’s everything you need to know about this popular treatment.

What Are the Side Effects of Dermaplaning?

To answer one of the most frequently asked questions about dermaplaning, this type of facial is completely painless. In fact, most people find it heavenly. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Before beginning, the skin surface receives a light cleansing
  • One of our professionals tenses part of your skin
  • A small, sterile blade is gently swept across the skin at a 45-degree angle
  • This process softly scrapes away dead skin cells and peach fuzz
  • Afterward, depending on your skin type, we may apply refreshing moisturizers

If you have sensitive skin, we take extra care to avoid redness, though some people experience extra sensitivity to the sun for a short time. If you have active acne, eczema, or psoriasis, you may want to avoid dermaplaning sessions since they can irritate skin breakouts.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Something that many people aren’t aware of is that deep wrinkles are often the effect of dead skin cells. The upper layer of the skin emphasizes fine lines and makes them more visible. At the same time, built-up cells give the face a dull appearance and rough feel. Dermaplaning can correct all of these facial blemishes. The result is gorgeous skin:

  • Incredibly smooth facial contours
  • Clear, bright skin
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Healthy skin layers
  • Fresh feeling
  • Improved cellular regeneration

Dermaplaning has become exceptionally popular in med spas and beauty care centers in New York City, Miami, Los Angeles, Paris, and Milan. One of the reasons is that a dermaplaning facial is a 100% chemical-free exfoliation option. This makes it an excellent choice for men and women with sensitive skin.

Can You Dermaplane Yourself?

Dermaplaning is best left to the professionals. This process requires using a sharp blade at precise angles. It’s safe and effective when performed by an expert but should not be attempted at home. This is true of most med spa skin care treatments, including microdermabrasion.

Dermaplaning vs Shaving

While the basic idea of dermaplaning is similar to shaving, there are significant differences. Instead of the relatively blunt razor used for shaving, dermaplaning uses a surgical-grade blade to carefully remove dead skin layers. A razor isn’t capable of this level of precision.
