What Is Dermaplaning and What Does It Do for Your Face?

Dermaplanning is a unique, effective, and safe exfoliation cosmetic procedure that involves the use of a sterile surgical scalpel to neatly shave the surface of the skin and remove any peach fuzz hairs and dead skin.

The Procedure

During a standard Dermaplanning procedure, the tool used is held by the physician at a 45-degree angle and carefully brushed along the skin to remove skin cells and hair.

This process is only done on the face and should not be used for other purposes such as eyebrow shaping, where the hair tends to be much thicker.

Even though Dermaplanning may be a standalone practice, the end results are usually good since the patient is more often than not left with smoother skin and fewer signs of acne scars.

The Benefits

According to experts, one of the main advantages of Dermaplanning is its ability to adequately trigger cell regeneration which helps to improve the overall appearance of things such as hyper-pigmentation and acne scarring that may occur on the surface of the skin.

Other benefits are:

  • smoother looking skin
  • radiant glow
  • fine hairs removal
  • silkier feel
  • deeper product penetration
  • works on all kinds of skin
  • diminishes the appearance of fine lines
  • immediate results

What to Expect

Peeling: In some cases, a patients’ skin may start to peel after a Dermaplanning procedure. However, this should be no cause for worry since it’s a very normal process that only occurs when there is insufficient time in between treatments. Such short periods don’t allow the hair’s growth cycle to be completed.

This is why patients are advised to leave enough time between their Dermaplanning visits in order to get the best results.

Darker hair: Patients should also not worry about the hair on their face getting a bit darker. This is because Dermaplanning only targets the vellus or peach-fuzz hairs, which are the ones that will grow back in the same size and color. This means that it’s physiologically impossible for the shaved hairs to grow back darker and thicker, so put your mind at ease.

No one should do this procedure on their own. The best thing is to seek professional help. By doing so, you will not only get the best results, but also keep yourself from any harm. Simply put, leave the job to the experts.
