At The Skin & Body Refinery, we understand that your skin is one of the first things people notice about you. Taking care of your skin is our top priority. Your skin is changing constantly, and during that process, dead skin cells collect on the surface. This leaves your skin with a dull appearance, clogged pores and skin problems such as acne. Fortunately, dermaplaning can rejuvenate your skin and get rid of those dead skin cells that build up on the surface.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a process in which a scalpel is used to exfoliate your skin. The scalpel gently scrapes the dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin. Dermaplaning is a completely painless procedure that is often misconceived because of the use of a scalpel. Much like when you shave your legs, the blade gently removes the top layer of your skin. When these skin cells are removed, you are left with smoother skin, fresh and vibrant.

Candidates for Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning works well with all skin types. For pregnant women, dermaplaning is a good option that doesn’t use chemicals that could potentially be absorbed in the skin and harm your baby. If you suffer from severe acne, or cystic acne, you should wait to schedule a dermaplaning appointment until after your skin has cleared up. If your skin is susceptible to allergies, that should be discussed before treatment.

Best Results are Seen Immediately

When you have a dermaplaning treatment, you can expect to see results almost immediately. Often, when applying makeup, your face doesn’t look smooth when peach fuzz is present. When it is removed, you have a flawless face immediately. A common myth is that peach fuzz will grow back coarser and darker, but this just isn’t true.

Dermaplaning is Recommended Before Many Other Skin Treatments

When dermaplaning is coupled with other chemical peels and laser treatments, it prepares your skin in such a way that other treatments have a longer-lasting effect on your skin. Dermaplane treatments should be done every 4-6 weeks since the skin needs time to rejuvenate. Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells with each treatment and so you don’t want to schedule treatments too often.

Dermaplaning Aftercare

There are very few side effects of dermaplaning. The biggest consideration you should make after a dermaplaning treatment is the sun. Your skin will be sensitive to the sun and should always be covered with sunscreen that is at least 30 SPF. If your skin is exposed to too much sunlight, you run the risk of hyperpigmentation.
