Ok, this isn’t the first time I’ve helped clarify a “scary-sounding” treatment, and yes, dermaplaning sounds scary to some people. You may be thinking, “First Microneedling and Muscle Scraping, and now this!? “Derma as in skin? Planing, as in, what my uncle does in his woodshop when shaving wood!?” Yes, the terminology can sound clinical and scary, but dermaplaning is nothing to fear. Once clients have experienced how beneficial this type of skin-exfoliating facial treatment is, they want to get it done all the time!

Dermaplaning Facial Benefits - How It’s Done

Okay, this will be a quick recap of dermaplaning and how it works. Dermaplaning is a skincare treatment (facial) that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel, typically a 10-gauge scalpel, to carefully and gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, aka peach fuzz, from the surface of the skin. Steps are taken before and after the procedure to help prep the skin and recover from the planing, including skin cleansing, moisturizing, and even red light therapy.

What Are The Dermaplaning Facial Benefits?

Thoroughly removing layers of dead skin/Attaining that smooth skin look

By sloughing away that top layer of dry, lackluster skin, dermaplaning reveals the fresh, glowing skin hiding underneath; it's honestly incredible watching this happen. Also, dermaplaning exfoliates the skin's surface, alleviating rough patches and uneven surface textures, leaving you with a baby-soft complexion - it's TV-commercial smooth. 

Kicking peach fuzz to the curb and helping skincare products absorb more effectively

Vellus hair, aka peach fuzz, can trap dirt, oil, and all other nastiness, leading to clogged pores and dull skin. Dermaplaning removes that unwanted fuzz, leaving your skin ultra-smooth and soft. 

Also, once the skin has undergone dermaplaning, it's more effective at absorbing your moisturizers and serums. "Why is this?" you make you ask. Typically, skincare solutions sit on top of a layer of dead skin cells, unable to penetrate effectively. Dermaplaning clears the path for access to the fine layer of freshly exposed skin, yielding more impactful results. 

Keeping those skin cells fresh and energized

Dermaplaning helps minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by promoting cell turnover and increased collagen production. Essentially, dermaplaning helps speed up our skin's cycle when shedding old cells; the results are immediate.

What do all these benefits add up to? What’s the holistic result? Well, having a beautiful, refreshed, and glowing face! Dermaplaning is one of our most popular facial treatments, and that’s because clients can see and feel the benefits as soon as they’re done with the treatment. When a skincare professional takes the time and finite care to perform a dermaplane treatment, nothing else can compete with the results of an hour-long session.
