Our skin is constantly exposed to the elements, harsh conditions and toxins, which can lead to it looking dull and lackluster as our bodies end up looking older than they are. Dermaplaning removes that damaged top layer of skin, enabling regeneration of fresh new skin cells to make the skin look healthier, more vibrant and alive.

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes dead cells and vellus hair from the skin, using a blade which an aesthetician smoothly skims across the face to remove these dead cells and fine hair. Despite the fact that the procedure removes hair, it does not alter the DNA of the hair and the hair grows back with the same texture.

How dermaplaning works

Dermaplaning involves the use of a curved razor-like tool, curved at the end. The blade is held at a 45-degree angle and carefully, painlessly, glided across the skin, removing dead skin cells, scar tissue and other debris on the surface of the skin that makes it look uneven, aged or lackluster.

Procedure

The patient may be sedated before the procedure with a numbing spray or a combination of oral anesthesia and local anesthesia. When the patient is relaxed, the aesthetician starts running the dermaplaning tool over the skin, taking roughly 30 minutes to complete. A soothing agent of aloe and sunscreen is then applied to the skin to protect it.

Who is a candidate?

Dermaplaning is suitable for almost anybody. People who suffer from wrinkles, acne scars, superficial hyperpigmentation and fine lines can greatly benefit from the procedure. Dermaplaning is also suitable for people with sensitive or thin skin and produces great benefits.

Dermaplaning after-treatment

Following dermaplaning, the skin becomes more exposed which enables anti-aging agents such as vitamin C and E to penetrate deeper into the skin. However, the skin should also be adequately protected using a moisturizer. Dermaplaning requires little if any recovery time although the skin does become more sensitive after the procedure so extra care should be taken, including temporarily avoiding the use of harsh cleansers or swimming.

Cost of Treatment

The cost of dermaplaning is highly variable as the treatment involves use of additional skin care products and spa services. The cost ranges from $75 to $200 per treatment session.
