If you’ve heard the talk about dermaplaning (also known as dermablading), you may wonder why so many people are excited about shaving their faces. However, dermaplaning is much more than a quick trim of unwanted peach fuzz. While effective in removing vellus hair, this non-invasive cosmetic procedure has much more benefits for your skin.
Your healthcare provider removes the outermost layers of your skin using a special tool. In most cases, recovery time from this treatment is only a few weeks.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning is minimally invasive; this procedure reduces the appearance of your acne scars, improves the brightness of your skin, and addresses many other skin problems. In addition, dermaplaning is used by some to remove hair.
If you’re experiencing any of the following skin problems, dermaplaning may be a good option for you:
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure in which the epidermis and tiny facial hairs are removed by scraping the face with a medical-grade scalpel or a dermatome. Traditionally, the procedure is carried out in a dermatologist’s office, although blades for at-home use are available at drugstores. However, it is safer to have a professional do the therapy in most circumstances.
Professional dermaplaning sessions involve a dermatologist or professional aesthetician working with a dermatologist. Unlike in a dermabrasion procedure, which uses a rotating brush at high speed to exfoliate, the doctor or aesthetician in a dermaplaning session uses a dermatome, which resembles an electric razor, to scrape away the top layer of dead skin.
Thanks to exfoliation and hair removal, your skin may look and feel more radiant and smooth. The therapy may help reduce hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Additionally, it is used to treat acne scars. The procedure’s effectiveness depends on your medical history, skin type, and skin tone.
A dermaplane facial normally lasts between 15 to 30 minutes, and the cost of dermaplaning can range from $40 to $150 or more, depending on your location.
If you have any of the following conditions, your doctor may advise you to wait before having this procedure:
- Skin burns and rashes
- Skin growths
- Acne or cold sore outbreaks
Before the procedure, your doctor will discuss your goals, check your skin’s health, explain what to expect regarding the process, and review your medical history.
It is advised to refrain from exfoliating your skin three days before the procedure. Additionally, you should avoid direct sunlight and tanning.
There is no downtime required to allow your skin to heal. Moisturizers and broad-spectrum sunscreens with an SPF of at least 30 are also recommended because your skin is more sensitive than usual.
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. However, keep in mind that it will not remove all acne scars or prevent aging. If you have concerns regarding your skin, schedule a visit with a dermatologist.
Possible Risk and Side Effects
Most people don’t experience any level of irritation or reaction. However, redness, swelling, soreness, and a tingling or burning sensation are all possible short-term reactions to the scraping.
It is not usual for hair to regrow thicker or darker. However, dark hair can occasionally appear in unusual places, such as the area around your chin and sideburns. In addition, dermaplaning can also cause keloid, infection, and skin discoloration if not done correctly.
