Dermaplaning Treatment for Smooth Skin
Dermaplaning is a superficial skin treatment that uses a dermatome to remove the vellus hair (peach fuzz) and the outermost layer of dead skin cells from the face, leaving the skin looking and feeling smoother and brighter. This painless treatment is a low-risk procedure that gives that dewy, glowing skin effect immediately after the treatment is completed.
Pain-Free Comfortable Dermaplaning
Some people ask, is a dermaplaning treatment painful? Does the hair grow back thicker? No, dermaplaning treatment is not painful. However, some patients may experience slight discomfort or a tingling sensation with the application of products on freshly renewed skin. As for hair regrowth, it does not come back thicker. The myth of hair growing back in thicker is exactly that, a myth. Only terminal hair will grow back dark and thick as it was before, however vellus hair will grow back the same, thin, and light in colour.
Dermaplaning on The Go
Many come to us asking, “is there any downtime associated with a dermaplaning treatment?” No, there is no downtime. Though some patients may experience temporary redness or irritation there is no pre-prescribed recovery time as there is with any surgical procedures.
What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
A dermaplaning treatment is an excellent cosmetic procedure for anyone looking for a brighter complexion, or someone looking to improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin. Some advantages of this treatment include:
Improved Skin Texture
Deplaning treatment is a gentle yet effective way to improve the texture of the skin, leaving you with smoother, soft skin. Deplaning also removes fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz or soft hair) on the skin so it is also great for people who want to get rid of their fine facial hair.
Even Skin Tone
By removing the outer layer of skin, deplaning treatment can help to even out any uneven skin tone, brighten dull skin and reduce the appearance of blemishes and dark spots.
Reduction of Fine Lines
Dermaplaning treatments are skin resurfacing procedures that can also help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, leaving the skin looking more youthful and radiant.
Increased Product Absorption
By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells, deplaning treatment as a method of exfoliation with a scalpel blade can help to increase the absorption of skincare products. Post-procedure, individuals notice much better penetration of skincare products, thus helping with further skincare routines.

What are the possible complications with dermaplaning treatments? Are dermaplaning treatments safe?
As with any cosmetic skin procedure, there are some potential complications associated with dermaplaning treatments even when they are performed by trained, experienced and licensed aestheticians. These can include:
+ Skin irritation: Because a dermaplaning treatment is an exfoliating treatment that involves removing a layer of skin, some temporary redness and irritation may be experienced.
+ Infection: If the blade used for the dermaplaning treatment is not sterile, there is a risk of infection, though active infection is rare when treatments are done by Board-Certified dermatologists like ours.
+ Hyperpigmentation: In rare cases, a dermaplaning treatment may lead to hyperpigmentation or darkening of the skin. This can further worsen with direct sun exposure if you go out in direct sunlight without the protection of effective sunscreens.
Who should perform a dermaplaning treatment?
The dermaplaning treatment should be performed by a licensed and experienced skincare professional who is trained in the procedure. At our clinic, our skincare professionals have undergone rigorous training in the deplaning treatment and are dedicated to delivering the best results possible.
You should avoid a dermaplaning treatment if you struggle with active acne or have deep-rooted acne scars and sensitive skin due to rosacea, eczema or psoriasis. Anyone with a history of cold sores or other inflammatory skin conditions (or other medical conditions) should also discuss dermaplaning treatment with an aesthetician in advance.
How long does dermaplaning treatment take?
Dermaplaning treatment typically takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the treatment area.
Is the dermaplaning treatment painful?
No, dermaplaning treatment is not painful. However, some patients may experience slight discomfort or a tingling sensation. Some skin care specialists do apply numbing cream before starting the procedure if they anticipate discomfort.
How often can I have dermaplaning treatment?
Dermaplaning treatment can be performed as often as once a month to maintain the results since it is said to remove 21 days worth of dead skin cells and offer skin rejuvenation on sun-damaged skin.
