What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The procedure removes fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as make the skin’s surface look smooth.
You may feel a tingling sensation during the dermaplaning procedure; you should not feel any pain.
A clinician will use an electronic or manual dermaplaning tool to scrape over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 20 to 30 minutes, on average, as your clinician gently works to exfoliate the skin.
After the treatment is finished, your clinician will soothe your skin with a substance like aloe. They will also apply sunscreen to protect your face.
No downtime is needed to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure.
You may notice that your skin looks brighter immediately after you’re finished with a dermaplaning treatment, but it often takes a few days to appreciate the full results. As any redness subsides, you’ll be able to see the results more clearly in the days afterward.
