What is dermaplaning?


Manual exfoliation by a licensed dermatologist or esthetician is performed using a dermatome, a specialized surgical blade that safely and effectively removes the uppermost layer of the skin, specifically dead skin cells that have accumulated over time. The consequences of leaving useless, old skin cells on facial skin is skin that appears dull, blemished and aged. However, dermaplaning your skin allows fresh, new skin cells to exude their healthy glow so that your face feels clean and looks dramatically invigorated.


Hair Removal and Acne Scarring

People who wish to have facial “fuzz” removed or suffer from minor acne scars will find dermaplaning to be an ideal technique for improving these conditions. Waxing and tweezing unwanted hair away is painful and often leaves skin irritated, red and bumpy. Dermaplaning is a painless alternative to these less than pleasant hair removal procedures. Additionally, the appearance of acne scars that have not recessed into the dermal layer of the skin can be reduced by the action of the dermatome sloughing off dead skin cells that exacerbate the visibility of these types of scars.


What else may Dermaplaning be used for?

Depending on the severity of a person’s skin condition, dermplaning may also be able to improve the appearance of skin discolorations, fine lines, excessively dry, coarse skin and large pores. Essentially, dermaplaning is an effective skin rejuvenation technique that can give you smoother, clearer and younger-looking skin by diminishing the unattractiveness of a variety of minor skin conditions.

Facial hair that is removed by dermaplaning does not grow back thicker because it is vellous hair. Vellous hairs are translucent, whitish-colored hairs that always return in the same condition that they originally sprouted. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back differently, whether it is facial “fuzz”, eyebrows or underarm hair.
