Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading.
Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face known as Velus hair.
Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- fine wrinkles
What results can clients expect after a dermaplaning treatment?
Dermaplaning is so popular because it is a relatively quick and straightforward treatment that can produce beautiful results. Here are some of the benefits that dermaplaning can result in:
- Softer and more radiant skin
- Better penetration of skincare products
- Reduction in the appearance of spots and acne
- Smoother makeup application
- Improving cell turnover in the skin
The extent of these results can vary from client to client and can depend on the existing skin condition. Nevertheless, most of the results should be immediate, painless and require no recovery time – so clients can enjoy their glowing skin straight from the clinic!
Can all skin types try Dermaplaning?
While most clients are safe to undergo a dermaplaning treatment, there are some skin conditions that should avoid it. While dermaplaning can benefit acne-prone skin, clients with active and cystic acne, or very oily skin, rosacea or extreme sensitivity and hyperpigmentation should be advised against it.
When should a Dermaplaning treatment be carried out?
The best time to offer clients a dermaplaning treatment is before a facial or other skincare treatment. This is because the skin is perfectly primed to absorb serums, oils and moisturisers to deliver maximum benefits to the skin.
If clients do use strong chemical exfoliants, it’s best to advise them against using them for five days to a week prior to the treatment. Similarly, any other form of facial hair removal such as threading, waxing or shaving should also be stopped around two weeks before the appointment.
You should also recommend to clients that if they do experience a severe acne breakout, rash or any sort of facial wound in the days before their appointment, they should reschedule it until their skin has healed. Similarly, dermaplaning can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, so if they are planning on going on holiday, advise them to book in at least 2 or 3 days before they go – tanning beds should not be used after a dermaplaning treatment and SPF 30+ should be recommended daily.
