Dermaplaning, or "blading the skin" uses
a surgical blade done by a clinitian to get rid of dead skin cells and
rejuvinate the skin. Dermaplaning has many of the same benefits of Microdermabrasion,
and can be done to people with sensitive skin, rosacea, or vasucular
issues unlike microdermabrasion. Dermaplaning gets rid of all the "peach
fuzz" hair as well leaving you with a smooth supple skin.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning has no down time for recovery. Dermaplaning can help
people with hyperpigmentation, rough and dry skin, fine lines, wrinkles
or acne scarring. Dermaplaning may be used by estheticians to prepare
the skin for a chemical peel or cleansing facial, allowing that
treatment to penetrate the skin better. Many have concern that removing
the vellus hair can make the hair grow back thicker, this is not true.
The procedure may make the hair follical have a blunt edge, but it will
not be thicker. Your body has vellus and terminal hair. Terminal hair
when cut can grow back thicker, however the fine vellus blonde hair
cannot grow back thicker. Vellus hair can trap debris and oils so it is
good to remove it on a regular basis to achieve clean skin.
Dermaplaning can get rid of the woman mustache, fine wrinkles on your
crows feet and forehead as well as make your makeup go on smooth and
How the Dermaplaning Procedure Works
Dermaplaning should be done by a State Licensed Barber or Cosmetology
Professional. Dermaplaning is a quick procedure with no adverse
effects, however usually a sign of consent is required since any
procedure using a blade can create nicks. Dermaplaning is typically
done only on the face. The clinitian will first clean the face with
mild keratolytic properties to loosen the dead skin. The skin needs to
be dry and it is encouraged for the client to remain still to avoid
nicks. A number 10 surgical blade is used at a 45 degree angle and
stroked on the skin on the opposite of hair direction. Vellus hair and
dead skin cells on the epidermous are removed. After the dermaplaning
procedure a hydrating lotion and sunscreen is applied to protect the
skin. Dermaplaning can be done every two weeks for optimal results.
Who Should Avoid Dermaplaning
People that are allergic to the metal of the blade (Nickel usually), lesions, or inflamed acne should avoid dermaplaning.
