Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Achieved by using a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions.
The Dermaplaning procedure involves the use of a 10-inch blade, which curves into a point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.

Dermaplaning is recommended to treat every 3 to 4 weeks.
With the Dermaplaning treatment your face will be prepped with a skin prep solution. Then the process of removing the dead skin and vellus hair will take place by gently gliding the blade across the face in an upwards motion. Once this is completed the face is wiped clean and we will tone the skin, and follow with a line of customized product for your unique skin, finishing with SPF.
Although this treatment is Non-Invasive you will need to protect your skin with moisturizer and SPF for 48 hours after the treatment is completed. You may experience some mild redness-and slothing or peeling of the skin, this is normal and the excess skin will flake off. However, you may return to work immediately, which is why it is okay to have your Microdermabrasion/ Dermaplaning treatment done during lunch.
Dermaplaning After Care
What To Do After a Dermaplaning Treatment: First, it's important to remember that any skin resurfacing procedure is somewhat invasive (but so is the regular facial scrub you use at home) and your skin needs some time to recover. The top skin layers have just been removed and your face simply reacts back.
Facial redness after each abrasion is normal (the redness should fade in a few hours) and so is some itchiness and a mild sunburn sensation (which can last up to two days afterwards).
Do these next 4 things to avoid complications and speed up your skin's recovery:
1 Cleanse your face immediately after treatment with a wet cloth and rehydrating toner to remove any dead skin cells left behind. This will be done by your tech.
2 Once the skin has dried completely, apply a rich moisturizer. Use moisturizer for 4-6 days after Dermaplaning to avoid excessive peeling.
3 Don't forget to use sunscreen every time you go out (even if it's an overcast day) because dermaplaning increases photosensitivity.
4 Avoid staying in the sun for 7 days after Dermaplaning to prevent UV rays from damaging your skin (which slows down the recovery).
Facial redness and itchiness are mainly after-effects. Use moisturizer and high SPF sunscreen which helps to soothe the skin and speed up recovery.
Facial Makeup After Dermaplaning
Avoid using any type of liquid or powder foundation (or any other type of cover up, for that matter) for the first 2-3 days after dermaplaning. Eye makeup and lipstick are allowed (any red marks usually fade after a few hours).
What Is Best To Apply On Your Face After Dermaplaning
Some creams, gels and ointments can help relieve the tenderness or the burning sensation you get after dermaplaning.
Vitamin A, C and E products increase skin elasticity and help the skin look fresh and toned..
What To Avoid After Dermaplaning Facials?
Avoid any exfoliation or shaving after facial dermaplaning.
Avoid at home exfoliation products and glycolic acid-based creams for 3 days dermaplaning.
Avoid waxing for at least 2 weeks after dermaplaning.
