Dermaplaning is an extremely gentle skin rejuvenation technique that exfoliates the uppermost layers of the skin to provide smooth and soft skin.
Dermaplaning is an incredibly gentle skin resurfacing procedure wherein a sharp exfoliating blade is used to scrape off the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. The aesthetician runs the exfoliating blade along the surface of the skin to skim away the dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and other surface impurities. Removing the vellus hair (peach fuzz) also clears the trapped dirt and makeup debris, brightening your complexion.
Dermaplaning is so safe and gentle that it’s also suitable for patients who are pregnant or nursing.
15 to 30 minutes.
Dermaplaning is a completely safe procedure with no harsh side effects or complications. You might experience mild redness for a few minutes, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately.
Dermaplaning immediately improves skin texture and overall complexion, making you look brighter. It also stimulates collagen production to make your skin appear firmer.
Your dermaplaning treatment starts with a personal consultation with our highly-skilled aesthetician, Miriam. She carefully examines your facial skin and discusses your goals to curate the ideal treatment plan. Dermaplaning is suitable for most people, including those who are pregnant or nursing. However, you might be advised against the procedure if you have an active skin infection. Miriam will also explain the treatment steps.
Dermaplaning is a simple treatment that concludes within 15 to 30 minutes. There’s no need for anesthesia because it’s a painless procedure, but some patients opt for topical anesthesia because they’re anxious. Miriam will gently run the exfoliating blade over your skin at a 45-degree angle, scrubbing off the dead skin cells and peach fuzz. In the end, a soothing cream will be applied over your skin to reduce the redness and discomfort.
Dermaplaning is a completely painless and comfortable procedure with no side effects or complications. At most, your skin may look flushed for a few minutes, but you can resume all your daily activities immediately. There’s no social or professional downtime. Dermaplaning should ideally be repeated once every month to maintain flawless skin and a bright complexion.
Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation technique that doesn’t use enzymes or acids — the aestheticians manually scrape the dead skin cells off your face. Chemical peels, in comparison, involve various skincare products with chemicals, enzymes, acids, etc. Dermaplaning is a lot simpler.
Dermaplaning doesn’t involve complex post-treatment aftercare. You should wear sunscreen when you go outdoors and cleanse your face gently for the first few days after the treatment.
A single dermaplaning session removes around 21 days of accumulated dead skin cells. As such, you should ideally opt for dermaplaning once every month to maintain optimal results. Your aesthetician will recommend the ideal dermaplaning frequency.
