What is Dermaplaning?

Do you suffer from dry, sun-damaged skin? Dermaplaning can clear away dead skin cells and impurities to make your skin look and feel better. But what is dermaplaning, and why should you give it a try?

At Balanced Aesthetics Medspa, we offer dermaplaning to clients looking to combat dullness and achieve a bright, glowing complexion. The procedure is performed by our certified and highly experienced aestheticians.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that revitalizes the appearance of dull skin. It is an exfoliation procedure that uses a specialized blade to remove dead skin cells, debris, and peach fuzz (fine facial hair) from the surface of the skin. These impurities often clog the pores and make the skin look dull and dry. 

Dermaplaning is generally performed on the face but can also be done on other areas of the body. Once the dermaplaning treatment is complete, the skin looks smoother and more radiant.

How Dermaplaning Works

During treatment, our aesthetician will hold the dermaplaning tool at a 45-degree angle and glide it across your skin, gently removing dead skin cells and fine facial hairs. This exfoliation process allows the fresh skin below to shine and leaves the skin looking refreshed and radiant.

Following your dermaplaning treatment, we will apply hydrating serums to soothe and moisturize your skin.

Dermaplaning is a comfortable, relaxing treatment that typically takes 20-30 minutes.

What to Expect After Treatment

There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning, but you may experience mild redness that can last for up to 2 days. You should avoid touching your face 4-6 hours after treatment.  Dermaplaning can make the skin more sensitive to the UV rays of the sun. Consequently,  sunblock needs to be applied regularly to protect the newly exfoliated skin.

Your skin will look brighter and more vibrant after dermaplaning. However, improvements will continue over time as your body produces new collagen in response to the treatment.

Is Dermaplaning Safe for all Skin Types?

Dermaplaning is well-suited for all skin types, but it is not recommended for people with inflamed skin or active acne.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Here are some of the important benefits of dermaplaning:

  • Promotes brighter, clearer skin
  • Enhances penetration of skincare products
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars
  • Improves skin cell turnover
  • Allows for smoother makeup application 

Dermaplaning is an appealing skin rejuvenation solution because it is a relatively straightforward treatment that delivers beautiful results. It is also an ideal way to refresh the skin before a big event.
