What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a facial treatment that involves using a sterile blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus (peach fuzz) hair from the face.
The process of dermaplaning is simple: a licensed esthetician will hold your skin taut and use a sterile blade to scrape off dead skin cells and vellus hair.
What is the process for a dermaplaning treatment?
The process of dermaplaning is simple: you begin by cleansing the face, after which a licensed esthetician will hold your skin taut and use a sterile blade to scrape off dead skin cells and vellus hair.
The treatment itself only takes about 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.
Afterwards, a hydrating mask can be applied, or the face is moisturized, and an SPF is applied.
What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning has a number of benefits, both aesthetic and medical.
First, dermaplaning can help to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.
Second, dermaplaning can help to unclog pores and remove debris that can lead to breakouts.
Third, dermaplaning can help to make the skin’s surface more even and smooth, giving the complexion a brighter, more youthful appearance.
Finally, dermaplaning can help to prepare the skin for other treatments, such as hydrating masks or moisturizers.
What are the risks of dermaplaning?
The risks of dermaplaning are minimal.
The most common side effect is temporary redness or swelling of the skin.
Other potential side effects include bruising, scarring, infection, and hyperpigmentation.
However, these side effects are rare and can usually be avoided by choosing a licensed esthetician with experience in performing dermaplaning treatments.
Can dermaplaning be used to help with acne?

Does dermaplaning hurt?
No, dermaplaning does not hurt. You may feel a slight scraping sensation as the blade removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, but the treatment is not painful.
