What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has many names. It is also called dermablading (or dermaplaning, a common misspelling), epi blading, microplaning, the scalpel facial, epidermal leveling, and microdermaplaning.

This quick, pain-free treatment lets you enjoy the benefits of visibly brighter skin. By carefully using a sterile surgical blade to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and remove unwanted facial hair, it leaves your skin feeling super smooth, soft, and youthful.

Dermaplaning Benefits

Aside from removing facial hair, it exfoliates dead skin to banish dull skin, improve softness, and clear clogged pores.

It even helps keep milia and blackheads at bay. Finally, it helps correct an uneven skin tone and creates a smooth canvas for flawless makeup applications. The result is a younger-looking and radiant complexion.

Dermaplaning Downtime

Our dermaplaning treatment takes an hour or less with no downtime. Our patients love that they can return to work and daily life promptly after treatment.

Dermaplaning side effects are rare but may include temporary redness that subsides quickly. For dermaplaning aftercare, it is important to wear SPF sunscreen after treatment to protect the fresh, healthy skin from sunburn. You should also avoid exfoliating and harsh skin products for several days before and after treatment.

Don’t Try Dermaplaning at Home

The scalpel blade used in our professional skin clinic is far superior to home dermaplaning tools. This means more dramatic results and better safety. Dermaplaning tools for home use are of low quality.

The handles often break, leading to cuts and injury. Home dermaplaning razors are also not as sharp as a surgical blade, resulting in skin scraping and blade skipping. Noel uses a brand new, sterile blade for each patient. Dermaplaning at home means reusing the same blade, which is not sanitary or safe. As a Microplane specialist, she also knows the safest angle, pressure, and direction to move the blade. Please leave this treatment in the hands of our highly trained esthetician.

Is Dermaplaning Right for Me?

At Farrior Facial Plastic Surgery, we offer advanced skin treatments as well as facial hair waxing in addition to dermaplaning.

Our licensed esthetician can help you decide which treatments will give you the best result. If you want to remove facial hair while boosting radiance and softening skin, dermaplaning may be the right choice.

Your skin will glow afterward! When done with microdermabrasion, dermaplaning adds the benefit of facial hair removal. For patients that would like an alternative to waxing, dermaplaning is a perfect fit. It is perfect for sensitive skin. Then there is dermaplaning vs laser hair removal. Lasers only work on dark hair and light complexions, while dermaplaning removes even fine blonde vellus hair on the cheeks, sideburns, forehead, upper lip hair, and chin hair on any skin tone. It works equally well on all complexions and hair colors.

DERMAPLANING FAQ

Let's put your fears to rest. The answer is not at all. Many patients assume it will be painful because a surgical blade is involved, but that is not the case. Remember, the blade gently scrapes away dead surface skin and hair. When you visit our dermaplaning specialist, you are in skilled and gentle hands.

Dermaplaning goes in the direction of hair growth, unlike shaving which cuts bluntly across the grain. That leaves the hair tapered smoothly in the direction of natural growth. Vellus hair will never grow back thicker or darker, it is only “programmed” to grow back as soft vellus hair. Dermaplaning at our clinic provides smoother skin and leaves skin glowing compared to shaving since the surgical blade is better at removing dead skin.

This exfoliating skincare treatment is commonly combined with a chemical peel, facial, or microdermabrasion. Good for those with sensitive skin, dermaplaning is recommended for the removal of peach fuzz (vellus hair) and light exfoliation.

Your skin will feel smooth and soft, and since there is little to no irritation or downtime, you can get back to your routine as soon as possible.
