Dermaplaning is a popular treatment that involves gently but persistently scraping away the top layer of facial skin, where dead and dull skin cells are most obvious. Dermaplaning can be paired with a variety of other treatments, such as a light chemical peel or a mask. Pairing the two allows for deeper penetration of skincare products. The dermatologist or aesthetic provider uses a special surgical scalpel to perform this treatment; the average dermaplaning session can be completed in as little as twenty minutes.

There’s no denying it’s a convenient skincare procedure – but what exactly are the benefits of regular dermaplaning treatments?

5 Benefits of Regular Dermaplaning Treatments

1. It increases cellular turnover.

Regular dermaplaning removes dead skin cells faster, which helps train your skin to shed them at an accelerated rate. With regular dermaplaning treatments, you should see your complexion issues fade quickly, thanks to your revved up cellular turnover.

2. It helps fade stubborn scars and hyperpigmentation.

Hyperpigmentation, sun damage, and even acne scarring is obvious because the damage is contained within the first layers of the dermal tissue. By manually remove dead dermal tissue on a regular basis (think every eight weeks), you’re helping your body remove signs of damage and scarring, thus fading your biggest complexion woes faster.

3. It fades the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

Wrinkles and fine lines are particularly prominent in those top skin layers. With regular dermaplaning, these aging symptoms are softened and minimized so that they’re not as obvious to the naked eye.

4. It creates a natural and rejuvenated glow.

Dermaplaning is renowned for creating an instant glow that just can’t be achieved with over-the-counter skin care products. As soon as your treatment is done, your skin will feel softer, look brighter, and appear more rejuvenated.

5. It removes annoying peach fuzz.

Sick of those little facial hairs showing up whenever you put on foundation? Regular dermaplaning sessions completely remove peach fuzz, meaning you’ll be applying makeup or skincare creams on a clean canvas. Dermaplaning does not change your hair texture or color, therefore it will not make your hair grow back thicker or darker.

The best practice I’ve ever experienced. I have never had a billing issue of any kind, which makes this place already incredibly unique. Dr. Carqueville is wonderful. She is lovely to speak with, and has expertly performed everything from cosmetic treatments to surgical biopsies on me over the years and does better work than a plastic surgeon.
