Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses a specialized blade — similar to a surgical scalpel called a dermatome helps  to remove dead skin and hairs. This procedure is also known  as microplaning or blading.

Conditions Treated

You may consider dermaplaning if you have skin concerns such as:

  • Acne scars.
  • Actinic keratosis (scaly skin patches that can lead to skin cancer).
  • Dull or dry skin.
  • Peach fuzz (light, soft hair on your face).
  • Skin damaged by sun exposure.
  • Fine lines (wrinkles).

Recommended For

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or  uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.

 Not Recommended For

  • Those with skin types featuring active acne breakouts
  • Skin types with raised vascular lesions
  • Eczema sufferers
  • Skin with hypertrophic scarring or keloid formations
  • Excessive facial hair or hirsutism sufferers with hormonal imbalance conditions
  • Skin types with pigmentation problems
  • Sensitive skin types
  • Inflammatory skin condition sufferers like those with rosacea and psoriasis

Procedure

Dermaplaning uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape away dead skin build up and “peach fuzz”. The blade can be a carbon fiber or stainless steel.The dermaplaning process starts with cleansing your skin and applying a degreaser. Next your skin will be held taught and the blade will gently scrape back and forth across your skin at a 45 degree angle until all the dead skin and hair is removed. There is no pain associated with the treatment and most patients fall asleep during the procedure. After, serums and sunscreen will be applied to hydrate and improve texture. You may return to your normal regimen directly after the treatment. A typical dermaplaning treatment will take around 30 minutes.
