What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment in which an experienced esthetician uses a small sterile exfoliating blade to remove both hair and dead skin cells from the face.

The blade is held at a 45-degree angle, and gently scrapes the outermost layer of the skin. To accomplish this, the skin is held in a position taught by your esthetician. This way, the blade moves smoothly over the skin.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that gently exfoliates the skin, making it more radiant and eliminating facial fuzz. It will eliminate the dead cells that have accumulated on your skin and are responsible for dullness and pimples.

This treatment improves the penetration and action of daily products (makeup, creams …) on your skin. Soft and smooth, your skin becomes a perfect base for makeup, your care products penetrate deeper into the epidermis and are better absorbed.

We also note positive effects on skin ageing, in fact exfoliation leads to a production of collagen and thus helps preserve the firmness of the skin. In addition, if you’ve always felt like your face had more hair than you were happy with, dermaplaning might be for you! It’s a very quick and gentle way to get rid of that fine hair to reveal the smooth skin beneath!

What procedures can be combined with dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning can be combined with other treatment procedures such as chemical peels. This can help in increasing the peeling depth. Another great combination is microneedling+dermaplaning. For more information on microneedling, visit our medispa treatments page to know more about this procedure and its benefits on its own.

Combining these two treatments can give you the most desirable outcome. Together, they can treat uneven skin tone, rough skin texture, large pores, scars, improve fine lines and get rid of unwanted facial hair.

Dermaplaning before microneedling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin, allowing the patient to achieve healthy and glowy skin !

What are the alternatives to dermaplaning?

An alternative to dermaplaning is microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are two exfoliating treatments that claim to soothe your skin.

While dermaplaning uses a knife blade to remove dead skin cells, microdermabrasion “sands” your skin using an abrasive surface. Fine particles can be directed at your face in a blast of air, or a special tool can come in contact with your skin directly to exfoliate skin cells.

Both procedures are similar in their :

  • Balance
  • Safety
  • Possible side effects and complications
  • Reimbursable expenses

  • Microdermabrasion tends to involve several rounds of treatments, with results that can last several months.

If you have to choose between these two procedures, it is best to consult our technician who will be able to advise you based on the results you expect.

The blade is held at a 45-degree angle, and gently scrapes the outermost layer of the skin. To accomplish this, the skin is held in a position taught by your esthetician. This way, the blade moves smoothly over the skin. The treatment only takes about 20 minutes, so you can book it alone, or enjoy it in conjunction with other treatments as well.

How long does it take to see results with dermaplaning?

The results are visible immediately after the session and for several weeks. The dermaplaning technique effectively eliminates the dead cells that have accumulated on your skin. Once these dead cells are removed, it will facilitate the absorption of creams used in daily life.

What are the risks of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a completely painless treatment. The work done during this treatment is based solely on the surface of the skin, so it is non-abrasive and painless. Depending on the individual skin, some might experience redness, irritation or minor breakouts. While many skin types, including those with sensitive skin, can benefit from dermaplaning, those with cold sores or active acne cannot. This is due to the scraping action of the blade. This can cause much more harm than good for these skin conditions.

It’s not for everyone

While many skin types, including those with sensitive skin, can benefit from dermaplaning, those with cold sores or active acne cannot. This is due to the scraping action of the blade. This can cause much more harm than good for these skin conditions.

Results are not permanent/long term

Unlike waxing or laser hair removal, dermaplaning will not give you long-term results. Expect yours to last between two and four weeks, depending on your skin type.

Results may differ

The results of dermaplaning can be very different from client to client. It can depend on the condition of your skin, your age, the thickness of your facial hair, etc.

The results will be visible for several weeks. Dermaplaning will remove dead skin cells that have accumulated for more than three weeks, which means that a month of purified skin will follow. If you like to take care of your face (like here at FaceMD), then you’ll love it ! Removing dead skin cells will allow the beauty products you use every day to penetrate deeper into the epidermis and therefore be better absorbed and more effective. The skin becomes smooth, the texture is refined and the make-up glides on evenly. A real delight !
