Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skincare treatment that involves gently scraping away the top layer of dead skin cells and fine facial hair using a specialized surgical blade. This exfoliating procedure not only smoothens and brightens the complexion but also enhances the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin. 

Ideal for all skin types, dermaplaning helps to reveal a softer, more radiant appearance with no downtime required, making it a popular choice for those seeking immediate improvement in skin texture and tone.

What Can I Expect During a Dermaplaning Session?

Pre-Treatment Consultation: Prior to your dermaplaning treatment, you’ll sit down with our skincare specialists for a thorough consultation. We’ll discuss your skincare objectives, review your medical history, and examine your skin to customize the treatment to your specific needs.

Cleansing: Your skin will be meticulously cleansed to eliminate any external impurities. This essential step helps to prevent any adverse reactions and ensures a clean canvas for the treatment.

Dermaplaning Application: Once your skin is ready, we’ll use a specialized scalpel to gently scrape the surface of your skin. Our expert aestheticians will carefully remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair, enhancing your skin’s texture and clarity. We adjust our technique based on your skin’s sensitivity and condition for optimal results.

Sensation: During the procedure, you might feel a light scraping sensation. Most clients find dermaplaning to be pain-free and even relaxing.

Duration: The entire session usually lasts about 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Our staff will ensure your comfort throughout the process and monitor your progress.

Post-Treatment Care: Immediately after the session, we may apply a soothing lotion or serum to calm the skin and enhance the benefits of the treatment. You will receive detailed aftercare instructions to help maintain the results, which will likely include moisturizing tips and advice on sun protection.

How To Prepare For A Dermaplaning Session?

To ensure a safe and effective dermaplaning session at Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic, we recommend following these preparation guidelines:

Avoid Sun Exposure: Reduce your exposure to the sun and refrain from using tanning beds for at least two weeks before your treatment. Tanned or sunburned skin can heighten the risk of complications and sensitivity during the dermaplaning process.

Discontinue Certain Skincare Products: Stop using skincare products that contain retinoids, alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs), or any abrasive exfoliating agents a week prior to your session. These ingredients can overly sensitize your skin, increasing susceptibility to irritation during the treatment.

Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment. Well-hydrated skin can handle the exfoliation better and recover more smoothly afterward.

Follow Pre-Treatment Instructions: Adhere to any specific instructions provided by our skincare specialists. This may include guidelines such as avoiding certain medications or supplements known to thin the blood, like aspirin, NSAIDs, or omega-3 supplements.

Plan for Recovery: While dermaplaning typically involves minimal downtime, you might experience some initial redness or sensitivity. It’s best not to schedule major events or strenuous activities immediately after your treatment to give your skin time to calm and heal properly.

Proper preparation can significantly enhance the effectiveness of your dermaplaning treatment and ensure a smoother recovery. If you have any questions or need more detailed guidance, please contact Mederm Esthetics & Laser Clinic before your session.

While a dermaplaning facial is frequently requested due to its immediate benefits and lack of downtime, some clients are concerned about future hair growth difficulties. Regular dermaplaning facial treatments will NOT cause your facial hair to regrow darker or thicker.

Dermaplaning is suitable for almost everyone. The treatment should be avoided if you have a tan, sunburn, active acne, a flaring rosacea breakout, or an inflammatory skin condition such as eczema or psoriasis. If you have a lot of severe acne scarring, you should be extra cautious when dermaplaning because there is a higher danger of scratching your skin.

One of the most popular misconceptions about dermaplaning is that it is a painful procedure. The truth is that dermaplaning is painless and enjoyable since it comprises soft feathery strokes. Popular treatments including waxing, lasering, and threading are said to be significantly less comfortable by most patients.

You can easily cut the skin if you don’t know the proper technique, such as the proper angle and how to hold the blade. This might lead to cuts or infection. Self-dermaplaning is not only risky, but it can also be ineffective.

A minimum of 6 sessions performed once every 4 weeks is required for best results.

While dermaplaning is generally considered safe, there are some potential side effects to be aware of. These can include some redness and sensitivity following the treatment.
