How does a dermaplane facial work?

Dermaplaning is a gentle, noninvasive, exfoliating treatment that will leave your skin looking soft and feeling softer than ever. During this process, one of our licensed estheticians will use a surgical scalpel to gently resurface the skin by removing the vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz”, and eliminating dead skin cells. This is important because those tiny little hairs trap things such as makeup, dirt, oil and other debris. 

Why dermaplane?

You might be asking yourself, “why dermaplane when I could wax/shave?” Here’s the scoop, dermaplaning is chemical free, suitable for all skin types and produces immediate results. This treatment is fast, effective, has no side effects and zero downtime. That means no swelling, irritation or redness for you! 

Benefits of dermaplaning

And if you weren’t already sold, it also reduces fine lines, wrinkles and skin imperfections. The perfect procedure for mother’s to be, as well as clients with sensitive skin. While our dermaplane treatment can be performed as a stand-alone option, it pairs best with other treatments as it aids in the absorption of products, allowing them to penetrate deeper and ultimately improve the final results. 

What to expect from dermaplaning

Post-treatment you will notice a more flawless application of makeup as well as many other benefits that include improved effects of your at home skin care products and reduced visibility of acne scars.

Dermaplaning will remove the dead skin cells that have built up over two to three weeks, so we recommend visiting us every three to four weeks to maintain optimal radiance.

How Do You Prepare Your Skin for Dermaplaning? 

A dermaplaning facial might be a non-invasive treatment, but you still need to prepare your skin before the procedure. Here are some of the things we recommend to our clients:

Cleanse first. Use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt from your face. Don’t use any other products like oils or serums before you go, as this will make the treatment less effective.

Discontinue chemical exfoliants. For 3 to 5 days before the scheduled dermaplaning, stop using your exfoliant product. You should also discontinue other products to allow your facial skin to settle.

Avoid the sun. For 5 to 7 days before the treatment, avoid basking under the sun too much. Sunburns will sting during dermaplaning, so you should postpone your sunbathing in the meantime.

Beware of acne. If you suddenly got an acne breakout before the treatment, you should contact your dermatologist. Depending on the extent of the breakout, you may need to reschedule the dermaplaning.

What to know before a dermaplaning treatment

Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a sharp scalpel to scrape dead skin cells and small hairs. There are no needles, stitches, or cuts, unlike microneedling facial. But before you go, you should keep this in mind:

  • Redness can occur. Mild redness can occur after dermaplaning. This should abate after a few hours, so there’s no need to panic.
  • You need to book an appointment. Here at HealthScience Med Spa, we require our clients to book an appointment to secure a slot for the treatment. Feel free to call us for our best facials in Phoenix!
  • Your face will feel smoother. Right after dermaplaning, you’ll notice your face being extremely smooth and soft. This is due to the removal of the dead skin cells and overgrown hair.
