How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning uses a sharp, sterile blade to slide over the skin, removing dead skin cells, debris, and even “peach fuzz” hair to reveal a clearer, brighter result. These skin cells naturally accumulate on the surface, causing the skin to look uneven and dull. Dermaplaning immediately brightens by removing this debris that has been hiding your new, rejuvenated skin.
How Long Does Dermaplaning Last?
We recommend your dermaplaning sessions scheduled six to eight weeks apart. This will keep your skin glowing and radiant and will continue to stimulate cell turnover and skin improvement. Some people may need treatment more or less often, depending on each person’s natural rate of cell turnover and how quickly they accumulate dead skin cells.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
You can see the benefits of dermaplaning right away. Your skin will have a natural glow and look smoother and softer. With repeat treatments, though, dermaplaning can offer the following benefits:
- Easier, smoother makeup application
- Less growth of facial hair
- Decreased hyperpigmentation
- Fewer breakouts
- Less visible lines and wrinkles
- Firmer, more resilient skin
These effects happen because, over time, dermaplaning increases cellular turnover, bringing new cells to the surface more quickly. This leads to younger-looking skin, and with ongoing maintenance treatments, your skin will continue to look younger and more refreshed. You may even see that your skincare products work better without dead skin cells to block the product from reaching live, healthy cells.
