What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation treatment that involves using a sterile medical blade to gently remove dead skin cells, debris, and vellus hair (a.k.a. peach fuzz) from the top layer of the skin.

This exfoliation treatment has been around for decades and is a popular option for those looking for a quick, painless way to reveal a smoother, brighter, and more even-toned complexion.

What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning provides numerous cosmetic benefits that can enhance a patient’s appearance.

Some of the key benefits of this treatment include the following:

  • Smoother, brighter skin: By getting rid of dead skin cells and debris, our skin can produce new skin cells resulting in a smoother, more radiant complexion.
  • Reduced appearance of fine lines and wrinkles: By triggering the natural regeneration of new skin cells, this treatment will minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Increased product penetration: Removing debris and vellus hair allows for products to penetrate deeper into the skin enhancing the benefits of skincare products.
  • Improved makeup application: Removing dead skin cells reveals a smoother base for makeup application. The manual exfoliation from the dermaplane will allow for makeup to apply flawlessly resulting in an airbrushed, youthful appearance.
  • Quick and convenient: Dermaplaning is perfect for those with a busy schedule looking for an instant result. With no downtime, you will notice a brighter, clearer, and more radiant complexion in just 30 minutes!

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, safe treatment suitable for most patients, however, some skin types are better than others.

Good candidates for dermaplaning include:

  • Individuals with excessive vellus hair (peach fuzz)
  • Individuals with dull, rough, or uneven skin texture
  • Those who want to improve the effectiveness and absorption of skincare products
  • Individuals with mild fine lines and wrinkles
  • Individuals with light to moderate acne scarring
  • Pregnant or nursing women who are looking for facial exfoliation without the harsh chemicals

Bad candidates for dermaplaning include:

  • Individuals with active acne outbreaks or inflamed skin
  • Individuals with very dark or thick hair as it may be more challenging to remove with a blade
  • Individuals with extremely sensitive skin or skin conditions such as rosacea or eczema
  • Individuals with deep wrinkles or heavy sun damage as this treatment is only suitable for mild to moderate skin concerns

It is vital to consult with one of our licensed medical professionals to determine if dermaplaning is the right treatment for you. They will assess your skin type, concerns, and medical history to ensure that the treatment is safe and effective.

How Should I Prepare for a Dermaplane Treatment?

The preparation process for dermaplaning is simple since it is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment:

  1. Avoid sun exposure: Avoid sun exposure for at least 24 hours before your appointment, as sunburned skin is not a good candidate for dermaplaning.
  2. Avoid using harsh products: Avoid using exfoliating products, such as scrubs or retinol, for at least 24 hours before your appointment, as they can increase skin sensitivity.
  3. Avoid alcohol: Avoid alcohol consumption 24 hours before your appointment, as it can increase skin sensitivity and the risk of post-treatment redness.

What Should I Expect During a Dermaplane Treatment?

Dermaplanes typically take 30-45 minutes to complete and are considered a painless and non-invasive treatment.

  1. Cleanse: Your clinician will cleanse your skin to remove any remaining makeup, oil, or dirt that may interfere with the procedure.
  2. Dermaplane: A sterile, surgical-grade blade is used to gently scrape the top layer of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and debris from the skin. Our clinicians will thoroughly exfoliate the skin ensuring a smooth result.
  3. Product Application: After the procedure, your skin will be soothed with customized medical-grade products based on your skin type.

What Comes With a Dermaplaning Treatment?

At VITAHL Medical Aesthetics, we’re dedicated to providing our patients with the best possible results from their dermaplaning treatments. While our standard dermaplaning sessions only include the treatment itself, we’re thrilled to offer upgrades such as laser treatments and facials to enhance your experience and results. Common dermaplane upgrades include Laser Genesis, HydraFacial, DiamondGlow, or Botox.

We believe that a combination of these treatments can provide optimal results, but if you’re looking for a basic dermaplaning session, our dedicated team of professionals will be more than happy to provide you with just that, which is why every dermaplaning session will end with a luxurious application of medical-grade serums to leave your skin looking and feeling its absolute best.

What Will My Aftercare Look Like?

After a dermaplaning treatment, it is important to follow your aftercare instructions to ensure the best results and prevent any adverse reactions. Avoiding sun exposure for at least 24 hours after the procedure is recommended to prevent sunburn and promote healing.

Make sure to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from further damage. It is also essential to avoid using harsh or exfoliating products, such as scrubs or retinol, for at least 24 hours after the dermaplaning procedure, as they can increase skin sensitivity.

Keeping your skin hydrated is essential to promote healing and reduce the risk of dryness or irritation. Use a gentle, non-alcoholic moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated and soothed. Avoid wearing makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure to allow your skin to heal fully.

It is also important to avoid picking or scratching your skin, as this can cause irritation, redness, and even scarring. Following these aftercare steps ensure that your skin heals properly and experiences the best results from your dermaplane treatment.

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?

The cost of a dermaplaning treatment can vary depending on several factors, such as the location of the medical aesthetic practice, the experience of the clinician, and the type of treatment you receive. It is also worth noting that adding upgrades, such as laser treatments or facials, can increase the overall cost of the treatment.

To get an accurate estimate of the cost of your dermaplaning treatment, it is best to schedule a consultation with a licensed medical professional at VITAHL Medical Aesthetics.
