How Dermaplaning Can Help Your Skin

Published on June 14, 2019

One of the best kept beauty secrets of the famous and fashionable is dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a procedure using a scalpel to scrape layers of dead skin off of the surface of the face. It sounds easy enough, but this is something that needs to be done by a professional. During a dermaplaning session, your esthetician will use a medical-grade scalpel to carefully scrape the surface of the skin. This rids the skin of dead cells and the vellus hairs, or peach fuzz, on the face. The result is skin that is incredibly smooth, soft and bright. An added benefit is that makeup and other skincare products go on much more smoothly.

How Dermaplaning Works Best
Dermaplaning is frequently added to other procedures like a HydraFacial. There are many different ways to exfoliate your skin, but dermaplaning is one of the best options because it’s able to penetrate the skin at a deeper level. Dermaplaning only takes about 15 minutes, and can improve the results of other skin care treatments when used to exfoliate the skin prior to your procedure.

Dermaplaning and Acne
For people who struggle with acne, it’s important to try and clear any serious breakouts or cystic acne before undergoing a dermaplaning procedure. There is a chance that the scalpel could open a pimple, causing it to take longer to heal. If you have acne-prone skin you can still have a dermaplaning treatment. You just need to be sure your skin care provider is experienced. Cleaning all of those dead skin cells off of your face allows it to breathe and can help prevent clogged pores.

Does Dermaplaning Hurt?
Dermaplaning is a fast and painless way to brighten and smooth your skin, giving you that youthful glow.

Is Dermaplaning Expensive?
It is one of the best and quickest add-ons to almost any facial to boost its effectiveness. The cost for dermaplaning is fairly reasonable. It runs about $30 when added to a facial or $45 when done by itself.
