Dermaplaning
Treatment

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective physical exfoliation procedure that triggers cell regeneration and allows products to better penetrate the skin. Dermaplaning is considered excellent for ridding the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil.

Dermaplaning is a skin procedure that uses a sharp dermaplaning tool to gently remove the small, fine hairs on your face. Typically the sharp tool is a 10-inch surgical scalpel that curves into a sharp point and is designed to be used on the clean, dry skin of your forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck. Despite sounding dangerous and terrifying, the entire procedure is virtually painless, though some side effects may occur such as slight redness or irritation. However, most people do not experience any unpleasantness during or after the treatment and are able to leave the procedure with no side effects.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning actually provides a number of benefits to those who utilize it. The gentle scraping of the surface of your skin acts as a physical exfoliant and removes dead skin in addition to hair. Dead skin along with dirt and oil can clog pores resulting in infuriating breakouts which leads us to the hairless skin is some of the cleanest skin. Because there is no hair to trap dirt, oil, and other debris clinging to your face, skin will be cleaner after a dermaplaning facial which, again, helps prevent future breakouts and allows other products to penetrate more deeply into the skin.

Risks and side effects
Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. Side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin in the day or two after dermaplaning. Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning, but they do occur. If you develop a scar from dermaplaning, your doctor may need to treat the scar tissue with a steroid injection to soften the scar tissue. Another possible side effect is a patchy skin pigment in the area where you have the procedure, which may decrease or disappear as time goes on.
