Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Are you looking for a treatment to add radiance to your dull, lackluster skin?  Dermaplaning is a fantastic way to brighten your complexion and renew your skin.  But are you a candidate for Dermaplaning?

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment in which a sterile surgical blade is used to remove the outer layer of dead skin cells and baby fine hair (peach fuzz) from the face.   

During dermaplaning, the skin is held taut while the blade is moved across the surface using an upward motion, gently removing the outermost layer.  The results are immediate as the skin is noticeably softer, smoother, and brighter after treatment.  A typical dermaplaning session takes about 20-30 minutes.  

Benefits Of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure that requires no downtime and has multiple benefits.  It promotes cell regeneration, which helps to reduce hyperpigmentation and acne scars.  Shaving away dead skin cells and fine hair also unclogs pores and prevents breakouts.  


Am I A Candidate For Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning can benefit almost all skin types.  However, it is very beneficial for people wanting to brighten their complexion or unclog their pores. Dermaplaning is a safe alternative for people with sensitive skin that can’t tolerate other exfoliating treatments such as chemical peels, or microdermabrasion.  It’s also a nice option for women that are pregnant or breastfeeding and have to avoid ingredients in chemical exfoliators. 

Dermaplaning Is Not For Everyone

Dermaplaning is not recommended for people with cystic acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or eczema, as it could worsen the condition.
