Are you looking for smoother, more radiant skin? Tired of pesky peach fuzz? Dermaplaning may be a good option for you.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, painless procedure in which the aesthetician manually scrapes surface dead skin cells and fuzz away. Dermaplaning requires absolutely no recovery time. It increases cellular turnover, smooths and softens skin, and provides immediate results. It’s a great stand-alone treatment or can be added to most procedures.
We might recommend regular dermaplaning as part of a comprehensive skincare plan for clients with healthy skin as well as those with the following skin conditions:
You shouldn’t get dermaplaning if you have an active case of acne, cold sores, or skin rashes. Your aesthetician will also need to know about any moles, skin tags, or other skin issues.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
There are a lot of benefits of dermaplaning, including:
- Noninvasive treatment
- Zero downtime
- Smoother skin
- Brighter-looking skin
- Can reduce fine lines
- Gets rid of peach fuzz
- Better penetration of products (moisturizers, makeup, etc.)
- Boosts confidence
Dermaplaning is a great option for both men and women. As women age and enter menopause, peach fuzz can become more prominent, especially on the chin. This can make you look older than you feel. Stop the tweezing and schedule professional dermaplaning for optimal results.
Below, we’ve listed some of the most frequently asked questions we get about Dermaplaning Treatments. If you have a question that isn’t answered here, you can call us or ask us at your appointment or consultation.
Yes. Your aesthetician will use a tool that is much sharper than the facial razors you can buy online. As they move it back and forth over your skin, it gently scrapes off the top layer of skin. The tool is sterilized between uses and we use a brand new blade for each client.
No. You will feel a gentle scraping or scratching sensation, but it is not painful.
For a dermaplane facial, it only takes 30 minutes or so. Larger areas would take more time.
Every 4 weeks is a good timeframe to maintain smooth skin. No more than twice a month, as dermaplaning too often can cause skin irritation. Your aesthetician will recommend a treatment schedule for you.
Results will vary from person to person. In general, results last 3-4 weeks. It’s not a permanent solution for any skin issue.
No. But if you have an active acne breakout, you should not have dermaplaning (or do it at home) because it can spread the bacteria that causes acne and worsen a breakout.
No. This is a myth. Dermaplaning also does not cause peach fuzz to grow faster or darker.
