DERMAPLANING

Browsing

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading.

Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.

Getting Dermaplaning in a spa can cost $250 on one 30-minute session of dermaplaning.

It may vary depending on the cost of living in your area and the provider you choose. Get a cost estimate before you book your appointment.

Exfoliation: “Shaving your face can have somewhat similar results to a professional dermaplane procedure,” Benjamin says. “Dermaplaning provides a deeper exfoliation than shaving at home, but they both remove the dead outer skin and vellus hairs.”

Glowing, brighter complexion: Because dermaplaning removes a layer of dead skin that would otherwise give a dull appearance, skin is left looking radiant and refreshed post-shaving.

Deeper product penetration: Facial hair can often trap dirt and oil that creates a barrier between your skin and the products you put on top. Getting rid of that layer may allow for your skincare products to penetrate deeper, thus being more effective. “Having a fresh, clean face will help [serums] penetrate more deeply.”

Smoother makeup application: Kunin notes that because dermaplaning removes facial hair and peach fuzz, the skin is smoother and pores appear smaller. This creates the ideal base for even makeup applications where powder and liquid products can sit on top flawlessly.

DERMAPLANING INSTRUCTION:

The 7 Steps to Remove Peach Fuzz at Home

Here is the complete low down on how to perform dermaplaning at home effectively and safely. 

Step 2. Wash your face

Get your skin ready by cleansing with a gentle cleanser to ensure all makeup and oils are removed from the skin.  

Rinse and dry your face.

Step 3. Apply a gel or face oil

Apply a thin layer of a gel or face oil on your face.  

Some people prefer not to apply anything.   It Is a matter of personal choice. 

Step 4. Downward strokes

Wet the dermaplaning blade in warm water and then start with downward strokes – start shaving with the hair growth. It’s important to have the correct angle for best results. 

Use short strokes at a 45-degree angle.

Don’t forget to use a mirror as face shaving blindly is not really a good idea!

Step 4. Rinse and repeat

Rinse the dermablade frequently to dislodge the dead skin cells and the fine hairs on it.

Thoroughly make your way through the different sections of your face targeting:

  • forehead
  • temples
  • cheeks
  • eyebrow area
  • sideburns
  • upper lips
  • chin

Step 5. Repeat again

Once done, go over your face again, this time against the hair growth. This provides a greater exfoliation effect on the skin.

Remember to continue to stroke the blade against the skin at a 45-degree angle. 

Step 6.  Splash and cool off

Finish off by splashing your face with cool water and pat dry.

Step 7. Apply your favorite serum

The skin is most receptive to skincare and topicals immediately after dermablading. 

It’s more permeable than normal because of the pathways the procedure has created. The exfoliated skin paves an easier path for the nutrients to absorb into the skin for maximum benefits.

During this small window, which is usually the first 1-5 minutes after a treatment, is your opportunity to pass nutrients down to your cells in the lower skin layers. At this point, apply your favorite serum or moisturizer to your face.   

Step 8: Apply skincare products

Some prefer to dermaplane at night before bed, so typically finishing up by applying a nightly routine which looks something like this:

DERMAPLANING BEFORE AND AFTER TIPS

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DERMAPLANE?

I recommend once a month (or every 3-4 weeks). Dermaplaning too often can irritate the skin. 

Dermaplaning can keep your skin looking bouncy, smooth and supple; baby’s bottom anyone?

As with any cosmetic procedure, diet, lifestyle choice, etc, there are some things you can do to get the most of the dermaplane experience.

  • When you are dermaplaining, make sure to use your thumb and index finger to pull about an inch or two of you skin taut. This will keep your skin tight, and prevent accidental cuts
  • For sterile purposes its recommended to throw away the blade after each use however, you may use it until it gets dull
  • After treatment, avoid excessive physical activity that makes you sweat
  • Avoid direct contact with sun for 48-72 hours on the applied area.
  • Avoid applying cosmetics immediately after use
  • Wear sunscreen daily. It should be skincare second nature, but just in case you weren’t aware, it is the best daily anti-ager in your arsenal. Find one with at least a 15+ protection and reapply as necessary throughout the day and/or before prolonged UVA/UVB exposure.
  • Also make sure to use an organic gentle daily cleanser.

Dermaplaning is the one skincare exfoliation treatment that reveals softer, smoother skin in minutes.

What is Dermaplaning?

The Dermaplaning Tool is a facial exfoliation treatment that uses a sterile single edge blade to strip the outermost layer of debris on the face to instantly reveal brighter, healthier skin.

Dermaplaning is an amazing procedure for poeple who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

Can The Hair Grow Back After Dermaplaning?

No, not at all. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.

Removing epidermal skin also allows products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Physicians may recommend this treatment to prepare the skin for medical procedures such as laser treatments or deep chemical peels. It also may be used by aestheticians to prepare the skin for superficial chemical peels or before a cleansing facial.

Dermaplaning is most often used on patients with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. Dermaplaning can be done as often as every two weeks, although it is usually done when vellus hair starts to grow back, which is generally in one month’s time.

Dermaplaning is a quick, effective procedure that normally takes 45 minutes to complete. It is recommended that patients space treatments approximately two to four weeks apart for the best results. No, there is absolutely no recovery or down time with this treatment.

iS Dermaplaning Painful?

Dermaplaning is actually one of the least painful ways to remove facial hair and dead skin—especially when compared to other hair removal techniques like sugaring, threading, and waxing. Think about it: shaving your underarms isn’t painful, so why would shaving your face be painful? Many people describe the feeling of dermaplaning as a gentle tickle or brushing sensation.

As we age, our cell turnover decreases and this affects our skin texture and tone, Dermaplaning gently buffs the top layer of dead skin cells away helps to reveal a brighter and smoother complexion. 

Buff away the dead skin cells that make complexions look dull and contribute to clogged pores and spots. Dermaplaning clears the way so skin peels, facials, skin products and serums can get down into the skin where they need to be rather than sitting on the skin’s surface. It removes peach fuzz / vellus hair and creates clear channels into the skin as well as a soft, smooth surface for makeup to glide on flawlessly. 

You can choose to have this wonderful procedure at a spa or doctor office or from the comfort of your home.

Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses.

Why? It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. “Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth,” explains Wright. 

Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, cosmetic dermatologists often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as laser treatments and chemical peels.

They are both forms of physical exfoliation, but the methods are very different. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions dead skin cells, which also helps to uproot clogged pores around the nose, mouth, and chin. 

Dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin, so it is well suited for drier skin types and anyone who wants to get rid of peach fuzz. But, keep in mind, both methods are good for almost everyone and it could just boil down to your personal preference. Made with a very sensitive blade for precision and to remove all dead skin fast and easier.
