Exfoliation is something that we could all benefit from. Without even being aware of it, we carry thousands of dead skin cells around every day. While there are quite a few at-home methods of exfoliating, actual dermatology treatments may be a better option. Dermaplaning is one of the most effective treatments that dermatologists use to exfoliate the skin. While the name may sound a bit intimidating, the process itself is simple and effective.

What is Dermaplaning?

This is a method of exfoliation that gently removes the top layer of dead skin cells from your face. Using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape the skin, the dead skin cells are removed to provide a complexion that is smoother, healthier, and glowing. This procedure is done so well because of how sharp the blade that is used in the procedure. The scalpel is held at a 45-degree angle and brushed along the skin, removing dead skin cells.

Aside from the top layer of dead skin cells, a dermaplaning treatment will also remove the peach fuzz that is responsible for clogging pores and causing makeup application to be an entirely different issue. At times, this treatment is used when individuals are planning on needing more invasive procedures done.

Who Could Benefit From Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is effective for all skin types, which makes it a popular treatment option. However, if you are experiencing a breakout, we do suggest waiting until it has cleared up to receive a dermaplaning treatment. If you have acneic skin, talk with a dermatologist before scheduling the procedure

How Long Does a Treatment Last?

This treatment provides incredible results that last for weeks and can be completed in roughly 30 minutes. This procedure can usually be done once a month, more if needed, but enough time should be left between appointments for the best results.

Benefits of a Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a great treatment for exfoliating your skin, but it also offers a variety of other benefits.

Dermaplaning can:

  • Smooth skin
  • Reduce appearance of acne scars
  • Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
  • Remove facial hair that traps dirt and oil
  • Provide instant results
  • Allow at-home produce to penetrate deeper and work more effectively

This is a great skin care treatment that will leave your skin soft, glowing, and healthy.
