Share On

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation method that uses a medical-grade blade to gently scrape the upper layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz off of your face, neck, and chest. This unique exfoliation method can leave you with fresh, bright, and ultra-smooth skin all over your body, but it has its own share of advantages and drawbacks when compared to more traditional skin treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion. Read on to learn everything you need to know about dermaplaning!

Does it Hurt?

No, dermaplaning does not hurt. In fact, most people find the treatment to be quite relaxing. The blade is very sharp, so you may feel a little pressure as it glides across your skin. But overall, the treatment is pain-free.

What Areas Can be Treated?

Just about any area on the face can be treated with dermaplaning. This includes the forehead, cheeks, chin, and even around the mouth. Dermaplaning can also be used on the neck and décolletage.

How Long Does it Take?

Dermaplaning is a great effective exfoliation method

The entire dermaplaning process takes about 30 minutes. This includes the time it takes to prep your skin and apply the numbing cream, as well as the actual dermaplaning treatment.

Who Can Perform It?

A licensed esthetician or dermatologist can perform dermaplaning. And because it’s non-invasive, there’s no down time required after the treatment.

Are There Any Side Effects?

While dermaplaning is generally a safe and well-tolerated procedure, there are a few potential side effects that you should be aware of. These include temporary redness, minor bruising, and swelling. In rare cases, more serious side effects can occur, such as infection or scarring. If you experience any of these side effects, be sure to contact your dermatologist or skincare professional right away.

What Results Can I Expect After Treatment?

Following your dermaplaning treatment, you can expect your skin to feel softer and smoother. Your makeup will go on more evenly, and your skincare products will be more effective since they will be able to penetrate the skin more easily. 

Can Dermaplaning Treat Acne Scars and Fine Lines/Wrinkles?

Although dermaplaning can’t get rid of acne scars or fine lines and wrinkles completely, it can help improve their appearance. The exfoliation that dermaplaning provides can help reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles by making them less visible.
