Dermaplaning is an advanced form of manual exfoliation that can be used with or without chemicals. The treatment is simple yet effective, takes around 30 minutes to complete and does not require any downtime. Younger looking skin without surgery, what more could you need?

Dermaplaning can help to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, increase skincare absorption, and will help make makeup application smoother and easier. Simply speaking, derma planning offers a long list of benefits for the skin.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that can remove the buildup of dead skin cells, leaving you looking younger and feeling gorgeous. It is a relatively safe treatment which can be used successfully on most skin types.

Unlike the type of exfoliating methods you can buy at the pharmacy and use at home, Dermaplaning offers a much deeper level of exfoliation and must be undertaken by a licensed dermatologist or plastic surgeon.

Is Dermaplaning painful?

The treatment itself is performed quickly and does not cause any pain at all to the patient. This procedure does not cause any trauma to the skin, and can be performed several times throughout the year for a more permanent youthful appearance.

What type of treatment is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is considered to be a manual exfoliation process. It is gentle on the skin and is undertaken using only a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface to remove dead skin cells or unwanted hairs.

Will Dermaplaning work well on my skin?

If you suffer with sensitive skin, or have broken capillaries, Dermaplaning will still be effective as it does not use harsh chemicals and is suitable for most skin types. It may not be suitable however, if you suffer from acne. A chemical peel may be more suitable for you in this instance.

Should I chose Dermaplaning or Microdermabrasion

Traditional microdermabrasion techniques have always been held in high esteem, but because of the nature of Dermaplaning techniques, they can offer even better results.

Are there any side effects?

In general, most patients will not suffer from any unwanted side effects. In some cases the skin may be slightly red and puffy after treatment, but this will quickly subside in due course.

Can I combine a chemical peel with Dermaplaning?

Yes. In fact, the two treatments combined offer an excellent skincare treatment that will leave you with younger looking, softer feeling skin. Because Dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells that act as a strong barrier against products, the acids in the peel are able to better penetrate into the skin to encourage new cell growth, reduce discoloration, soften fine lines, and minimize the appearance of pores.

What else can Dermaplaning do for me?

This type of treatment can temporarily remove the very fine hairs that help the body to keep warm, but that can cause unsightly “peach fuzz”. This can help your skin to appear more youthful. Derma planing is also a great way to diminish fine lines, smooth away acne scarring and it can even help unblock blackheads. Most importantly it will generate new healthy cell growth and improve the overall texture and tone of your skin.
