How does dermaplaning work?
During a dermaplaning treatment, the medical professional will use the scalpel held at a 45-degree angle and apply light, short upward strokes to exfoliate the skin. Because this procedure uses feather-light strokes, there is no worry for pain or piercing of the skin.
While many patients may think this technique looks similar to shaving, dermaplaning is much more effective because the blade offers many additional benefits. When dermaplaning, there is no need to worry about the removed hair growing back darker, as the treatment only targets vellus hair (peach fuzz), which always grows back the same size and color. After your treatment, the medical professional will apply a mask to nourish and enrich your newly revealed skin.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation treatment. Additionally, it promotes deeper product penetration which can boost the effects of your skincare products while also making the skin look and feel smoother. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of acne scars. The treatment can prevent future breakouts as it removes facial hair that can easily trap dirt and oils and hold them near the skin, leading to acne.
