Dermaplaning And Its Benefits

Dermaplaning is a quick and painless way to get smooth, glowing skin. The dermaplaning process is ideal for those who want to have silky smooth skin, remove peach fuzz before special occasions or to make skincare more effective and makeup application easier. Dermaplaning is a fantastic treatment to get rid of dead skin cells and remove facial hair. Dermaplaning is also recommended to anyone about to undergo micro-channeling or chemical peel treatment for better penetration and results.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation procedure. The blade removes dead skin and peach fuzz hair by shaving the skin surface. Holding the blade at a 45-degree angle, the blade is brushed against the skin to remove dead skin cells and hair. It enhances any product's effects applied afterwards, since it is able to penetration deeper. The skin appears and feels smoother after the procedure, and acne scars may be reduced.


● Suitable for all skin types

● Reduces the appearance of fine lines

● No downtime and instant results

● Provides deeper penetration of products

● Face hair that traps dirt and oil are removed by this method

● Enhances skin's smoothness

● Dead skin cells and "peach fuzz" can be safely removed

● Scars appear less visible

As well as removing unwanted hair from the skin, dermaplaning has several other benefits. First, the scraping of the skin acts as an exfoliant and removes dead skin along with the hair. Having dead skin along with dirt and oil can clog pores, resulting in breakouts. The absence of hair allows your skin to be cleansed after a dermaplaning facial, which prevents future breakouts and allows other products to reach the deeper layers of your skin. However, for those suffering from an active breakout or severe acne, a dermaplaning facial may not be a good option because it can end up overstimulating the skin and worsen breakouts.

The removal of dead skin also has anti-aging effects, fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars are reduced. The results of this treatment will be improved texture and tone of the skin and a dewy glow. In addition, your makeup will glide on smoothly and evenly. Before micro-channeling treatments, it is recommended to book a dermaplaning facial. The micro-channeling treatment will penetrate the skin better after the dead skin and hair is removed, making it more effective. The effects of dermaplaning last for about three weeks because dead skin cells are removed from the skin's surface. However, it is recommended to book regular follow-ups to maintain the results.

Apart from those with actively inflamed acne, just about anyone can benefit from and utilize dermaplaning treatments. As for hair removal and exfoliation, dermaplaning can be a part of your skincare routine. Women who are pregnant or who have sensitive skin can benefit from this type of exfoliation, as well as those suffering from rashes. Dermaplaning is the safest way to exfoliate when pregnant because it's a simple mechanical exfoliation that doesn't involve any acids or chemicals.

Dermabrasion vs. Dermaplaning

It is usual for most people to confuse these two procedures or think they are interchangeable, but they are two different procedures with unique outcomes in reality. If you are looking for dermaplaning, don't ask for dermabrasion. Dermaplaning is a quick, easy, and non-invasive procedure that removes dead skin and hair from the skin surface. While microcrystals and suction are used in dermabrasion to remove dead skin cells, they can be pretty intense. It's not uncommon for dermabrasion to cause infections and scarring, which is why it is decreasing in popularity in spas and clinics.
