The Science:

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a specialized surgical scalpel to gently exfoliate the top layer of the skin, specifically the epidermis. The science behind dermaplaning revolves around the skin’s natural ability to regenerate and the mechanical exfoliation provided by this treatment. Here’s a breakdown of the science behind dermaplaning:

  1.  Mechanical Exfoliation: Dermaplaning is primarily a mechanical exfoliation technique. The scalpel used in the procedure skims the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells, vellus hair (commonly referred to as “peach fuzz”), and other impurities. This physical exfoliation process promotes the shedding of old, damaged skin cells and encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
  2.  Enhanced Product Absorption: By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning enhances the skin’s ability to absorb topical skincare products. This means that after dermaplaning, your skincare products can penetrate the skin more effectively, potentially leading to better results from your skincare routine.
  3.  Smoothing and Brightening: The removal of dead skin cells and fine facial hair through dermaplaning results in a smoother, brighter complexion. This is due to the elimination of the irregularities on the skin’s surface and the reflection of light on the newly exposed skin.
  4. Stimulation of Collagen Production: Although dermaplaning primarily targets the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin), the procedure can stimulate the deeper layers, including the dermis. This can lead to increased collagen production, which contributes to improved skin elasticity and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time.
  5. Reduced Hyperpigmentation: Dermaplaning can be beneficial for those with hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. By removing the top layer of skin, it can reduce the appearance of dark spots and discoloration.
  6.  Non-Invasive and Minimal Downtime: Dermaplaning is non-invasive, and it typically requires no downtime. This makes it a popular choice for those seeking a quick and effective treatment without the recovery period associated with more intensive procedures.
  7.  Suitable for Most Skin Types: Dermaplaning is generally suitable for a wide range of skin types, as it doesn’t rely on chemicals or harsh abrasives. However, it may not be recommended for those with certain skin conditions or active acne.
  8.  Temporary Hair Removal: One of the side effects of dermaplaning is the removal of fine facial hair (vellus hair). While this hair grows back, its temporary removal can lead to a smoother makeup application and the appearance of brighter skin.

 This procedure can be a valuable addition to a skincare routine for those looking to achieve a smoother, more radiant complexion.

The Benefits:

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that offers several potential benefits for the skin. Some of the key advantages of dermaplaning include:

Dermaplaning provides effective exfoliation by removing the top layer of dead skin cells. This exfoliation process can leave your skin looking smoother and more radiant.

The procedure also removes fine facial hair (vellus hair or “peach fuzz”), providing a smoother surface for makeup application and enhancing the overall appearance of the skin.

After dermaplaning, skincare products can penetrate the skin more effectively because the barrier of dead skin cells and fine hair has been removed. This allows for improved product absorption and potentially more significant results from your skincare routine.

While dermaplaning primarily targets the outermost layer of skin, it can stimulate the production of collagen in the deeper layers. Over time, this may lead to improved skin elasticity, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

By removing dead skin cells and fine hair, dermaplaning can result in a smoother skin texture. It reduces irregularities and promotes a more even complexion.

Dermaplaning can help reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and uneven skin tone by exfoliating away the upper layer of discolored skin.

The removal of fine facial hair and dead skin cells provides a smoother canvas for makeup application. Makeup can glide more evenly, leading to a flawless finish.

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure that typically requires no downtime. It’s a convenient option for those looking for a quick treatment without the recovery period associated with more intensive procedures.

Dermaplaning is generally suitable for various skin types, as it doesn’t involve harsh chemicals or abrasive substances. However, it may not be recommended for individuals with certain skin conditions or active acne.

Unlike some skincare treatments that require multiple sessions to see results, dermaplaning provides immediate visible improvements in skin texture and tone.

Dermaplaning is generally a safe and effective way to enhance the appearance of your skin.

FAQs

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that uses a small, sterile surgical blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair, also called peach fuzz, from the skin’s surface. The blade is held at a 45-degree angle and gently scraped across the skin, removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and hair. The process is painless and non-invasive, and there is no downtime required. After dermaplaning, your skin will feel smoother, softer, and more radiant. The treatment is safe for all skin types and can be done in as little as 30 minutes.

Dermaplaning offers significant benefits for makeup application and skincare product absorption. By removing dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz, dermaplaning creates a smooth, even surface for makeup application, resulting in a flawless, airbrushed finish. Additionally, after dermaplaning, your skin will be more receptive to skincare products, allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin and be more effective. This can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, as well as a brighter, more even complexion.

It’s important to note that the results of dermaplaning are not permanent and typically last 3-4 weeks after treatment. We recommend scheduling a monthly maintenance plan spaced four weeks apart to maintain your healthy, radiant appearance.

Absolutely not! You may feel a mild scraping sensation during Dermaplaning and experience some redness post-treatment.
