What are dermaplaning facials?
Dermaplaning facials are a type of facial treatment that involves using a sharp blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the skin’s surface on your face. This type of facial can leave your skin feeling smooth and soft, and can also help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The dermaplaning procedure is generally safe for any skin type, but it may not be suitable for everyone. If you have sensitive skin or are prone to breakouts, you should speak to your dermatologist or skincare professional before booking a dermaplaning facial.
Why should I consider dermaplaning?
Most people who consider having dermaplaning done are looking for ways to improve the appearance of their skin. If you have fine lines, wrinkles, or acne scars that you would like to decrease the appearance of, dermaplaning may be a good option for you. This type of facial can also help to improve the texture of your skin and exfoliate it by removing the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
What is the dermaplaning process?
Dermaplaning is usually performed in a spa, salon, or dermatologist’s office by a skincare professional. The procedure generally takes about 30 minutes.
First, your esthetician or doctor will cleanse your skin and apply a numbing cream to your face if necessary. Next, they will hold the skin taut with one hand and use the other hand to hold the sharp, sterile blade at a 45-degree angle against your skin. They will then move the blade in small, circular motions across your face until the entire area has been treated.
After dermaplaning is complete, your skincare professional may apply a hydrating mask or serum to soothe your skin. Sunscreen will also be applied to protect your newly exfoliated skin.
What to expect during and after dermaplaning
Most people report that dermaplaning treatments are relatively painless. You may feel a slight scraping or tingling sensation as the blade moves across your skin, but this should not be painful.
After dermaplaning, your skin will feel softer and smoother. It may also look brighter thanks to the removal of dead skin cells. You may notice that your makeup goes on more smoothly or that your skincare products are more effective after dermaplaning. Dermaplaning can also cause minor cuts or abrasions, so it’s important to follow your skincare professional’s aftercare instructions!
