What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning often referred to as dermablading, which is a beneficial exfoliating procedure for the face that leaves the skin looking and feeling smooth. The process uses a surgical scalpel to remove the dead skin cells and fuzzy hair. However, we don’t recommend dermaplaning at home as it is a surgical procedure and should only be carried out in a clinical environment.

Is Dermaplaning Safe?

The procedure is very safe providing if carried out by a suitably trained practitioner. However, dermaplaning at home may result in damage to the face as the method uses a sharp scalpel, and this procedure should always be carried out in a clean clinical environment.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

The benefits of this procedure include; better product absorption, along with the removal of soft facial hair and dead skin cells that collect dirt and grime, resulting in smoother healthier skin.  Furthermore, you can reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne scars with this procedure.  Finally, all skin types are treatable, and there is no downtime following the procedure.


Dermaplaning Pros and Cons


The procedure painlessly exfoliates the dead skin, naturally stimulating the skin’s rejuvenation, and It’s ideal for patients with sensitive skin. Besides, dermaplaning works with other facial treatments, laser, microdermabrasion, and chemical peels, promoting better product penetration. Also, it can make the application of make-up easier as the skin is smooth. Furthermore, acne scars can appear lighter, and the procedure doesn’t encourage hair to grow back thicker or darker.


Dermaplaning can be more expensive than other hair-removal treatments as the procedure does not remove from the hair from the root only the surface of the skin. And the results might not be as long-lasting as other methods, such as waxing. However, individual patient results will differ depending on their hair-growth cycle.

Patient’s with active and cystic acne should avoid this type of hair removal, as it can cause further irritation. Finally, female patients with Hirsutism, a condition of excessive male-pattern hair growth, should avoid this treatment.

Facial planing is a low-risk procedure with minimal side effects that may include slight redness of the face following the procedure. However, in rare instances, some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermablading.

To get the best results from planing its recommended that treatments are carried out every three to four weeks. To fit in with the body’s natural rejuvenation cycle of replacing the skin.
