Dermaplaning is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that can help address multiple skin concerns at once. This minimally invasive, painless treatment involves the use of a medical-grade scalpel to remove the top layer of skin on the face. The procedure effectively removes the fine vellus hair, known as “peach fuzz,” and dead skin cells, leaving the surface of the face smooth and rejuvenated. Here is what you should know.

What Can Dermaplaning Treat?

The following are some of the most common benefits of dermaplaning and an example of the type of treatment it can offer:

Fine Lines

Thankfully, dermaplaning effectively reduces the appearance of fine lines by removing dead skin cells. This helps smooth the face and create a more youthful glow. 

Gunky Makeup or Having to Use Too Much Product

Dermaplaning can help create a fresh new foundation on your skin, which dramatically improves how skin care products are absorbed. It also improves the appearance of makeup by allowing for a more consistent application of products. As a result, you can expect that your products will last longer and go on better, solving the problem of gunky makeup or products that simply do not last.

Uneven Skin Tones, Acne, Acne Scars

Dermaplaning can dramatically improve the appearance of uneven or dry skin. It works by getting rid of the cracked epidermis, creating a smooth and even surface. It can even reduce the appearance of acne scars, pockmarks, and sun spots in some cases. Unclogging the pores on your face can also reduce the development of acne.

Dermaplaning is an exceptional option for all skin types and requires no downtime for recovery.
