Dermaplaning 101: How Long Does Dermaplaning Last, How Often Should You Get Treatment

Have you heard about Dermaplaning from a friend, social media or from your dermatologist? Dermaplaning is a relatively new treatment with successful outcomes without the need for invasive or chemical treatments.

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe (provided the person performing it is properly trained) and highly effective physical exfoliation procedure. It requires the use of a sterile, surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the top-most layer of dead skin. It gives your skin’s surface a smooth feel, removing “peach fuzz”. Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin, such as a light chemical peel. Dermaplaning is also excellent to rid the face of excess fine hairs which can often accumulate dirt and oil.

What can Dermaplaning treat?
Dermaplaning reduces the appearance of fine lines, visible acne scars, and dark spots. Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types and is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals.

How Long Does Dermaplaning Last?
A Dermaplaning session takes around 30 minutes and requires no downtime.

How Often Do I Need to Get Dermaplaning?
You should obtain a more healthy appearance after the first session, but best results occur after a series of treatments. Typically a series includes six treatments, with visible improvements after two or three treatments.
