Dermaplaning has become one of the most popular skincare treatments of the last few years. That’s because it comes with very few risks and many benefits. If you’re considering adding a quick and easy skincare treatment to your regular regimen, dermaplaning is one to consider. Here’s what to know about this option and how it can transform your skin.

The Process

The surface of the facial skin, which often contains dirt, dead skin cells, and other debris that can clog the pores, is gently shaved with a surgical scalpel. The blade is held at a 45-degree angle and glided gently across the face without cutting into the skin to remove the top layer of debris and fine hairs. This reveals the healthier and younger layer of skin underneath. A single treatment session can be completed in 30 to 40 minutes and is easily combined with other skincare treatments.

Conditions That Dermaplaning Can Treat

In addition to making your skin look younger and more radiant, dermaplaning is used frequently as a cosmetic treatment for specific skin concerns. Dermaplaning can reduce the appearance of acne scars and fine lines along with sun damage. Dull and dry skin can also be improved with this option. Dermaplaning can also remove peach fuzz on the surface of the skin for smoother, more natural-looking makeup application.

It’s Low Risk

Because it’s non-invasive and doesn’t use any harsh skincare products, dermaplaning is a great treatment option for nearly any skin type. It comes with very few risks when performed by an experienced skincare professional, meaning you can benefit from dermaplaning even while pregnant or with certain health conditions.

It’s A Low-Cost Alternative

Improving your skin doesn’t always have to involve expensive and hefty treatments. With dermaplaning, there are very few negative effects for your skin and it comes at a much lower cost next to other facial treatments. You can add dermaplaning to your regular skincare regimen without a high toll on your schedule or your wallet.

No Downtime

One of the best benefits of dermaplaning is that it doesn’t require downtime. In most cases, you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. However, you should follow your skincare specialist’s instructions to protect your skin afterward, such as wearing sunscreen and refraining from using lotions, creams, or cosmetics that could cause skin irritation.

How Long Do Results Last?

It should be noted that the results of dermaplaning aren’t permanent, and you’ll need to schedule regular appointments to maintain your glowing look and soft feel. Results usually last up to three to four weeks before you can return for re-treatment.
