The process of dermaplaning has been around for quite some time now and continues to grow in popularity. However, for many clients it's relatively new to their skincare routine. So, what's all the hype about? Aside from removing the obvious unwanted hair, there are many benefits to this quick, easy and pain free treatment.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning, also called microplaning or blading, is a quick and painless way to remove unwanted hair and dead skin cells from your face. This cosmetic treatment has become popular over the past few years because it's safe, convenient, and highly effective with no downtime.

Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation, removing old dead cells from the skin's outermost and most visible surface. This process cleans and refreshes the skin as it removes many of the barriers that prevent skincare products from penetrating. Not only does dermaplaning remove unwanted hair and help your skin to look great, but it also allows you to maximize your existing skincare regime.

How does dermaplaning work?

Everyone has a little facial fuzz, and this fine, soft hair is known as vellus. The simple and gentle procedure of dermaplaning removes vellus along with dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris with a fine, sterile blade. It is like a deep form of exfoliation or a luxurious form of shaving.

Dermaplaning can treat multiple skin conditions, or simply applied to remove hair and refresh the face. This process can be used to treat the following conditions:

  • Facial hair
  • Dull skin
  • Dry skin
  • Damaged skin
  • Fine wrinkles
  • Signs of aging
  • Acne scars

Dermaplaning can be performed every four to six weeks, especially for people with certain skin problems or psychological distress due to excessive facial hair. While people with severe acne, skin infections, or cold sores should avoid this treatment to prevent inflammation and possible scarring, dermaplaning is completely safe in the vast majority of cases.

Benefits of dermaplaning

Dermaplaning provides a range of benefits for people of all ages and from all walks of life. Its major benefits include the following:

  • The removal of vellus hair helps to smooth out the skin, which allows makeup to sit better, improves light refraction, and helps the skin to glow.
  • The removal of dead skin cells helps to freshen up the face, with skin likely to look clearer and skincare products soaking in more deeply.
  • The removal of facial hair can help to improve confidence, especially for people who are self-conscious about hair in the lower cheek region.
