Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skincare treatment that uses a specialised surgical blade to remove dead skin cells and fine hair from the surface of the skin. It is a popular treatment for exfoliation and brightening the skin.
Dermaplaning is generally considered safe when performed by a trained skincare professional. However, it may not be suitable for those with certain skin conditions, such as active acne or rosacea, or for those with a history of keloid scarring.
Dermaplaning can help to improve the texture and tone of the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and enhance the effectiveness of skincare products. It can also make makeup application smoother and more even.
The frequency of dermaplaning treatments will depend on your skin type and individual needs. Some people may benefit from monthly treatments, while others may only need to get it done a few times a year.
No, Dermaplaning is not a painful treatment. You may feel a slight scraping sensation as the blade is passed over your skin, but it should not be uncomfortable.
There is typically no downtime after dermaplaning, although your skin may be slightly red and sensitive immediately after the treatment. You should avoid sun exposure and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect your skin.
While there are at-home dermaplaning tools available, it is generally recommended to have the treatment done by a professional. They have the training and experience to safely and effectively perform the procedure.
