What is Dermaplaning?


Published November 16, 2017

Dermaplaning can be used to treat a multitude of skin concerns and can be used on most skin types safely and effectively. Many women admire Hollywood actresses for their beauty and often try their skin care secrets. It has been said that face shaving was the best-kept secret of Hollywood leading ladies such as Marilyn Monroe and Liz Taylor.

An ideal candidate is anyone with sun damage, pigmentation irregularities, or dull, clogged skin. It may be preferred by some patients who are not candidates for chemical exfoliation or microdermabrasion as well as patients with ethnic skin because it is less likely to produce extreme changes and contrast in skin color. If women are looking to remove that “peach fuzz” vellus hair, this facial does it for you.

The skin is left smooth like porcelain.  Dermaplaning refines the skin, allowing for better absorption of topical ingredients.  Performing this treatment on men is not recommended due to the histology of their facial hair.  The standard interval for a Dermaplaning treatment is once a month for 3-4 months, and as needed after that.

Dermaplaning can be a stand-alone treatment, or can “boost” some of our most popular procedures, such as the vampire facial, a chemical peel, and our signature facial.

The actual process involves using a surgical scalpel attached to a surgical blade handle to take off the epithelial tissue of the stratum corneum, with no pain or downtime.  This treatment effectively stimulates and rejuvenates the skin tissue, as well as removing the fine vellus hair that can trap excess dirt and oil.  The hair will grow back over time, but will not be courser as many believe.

In conclusion, dermaplaning offers effective skin rejuvenation with zero downtime.  Skin is smoother, and temporarily “peach fuzz” free.   All skin types except for grade 3 and grade 4 acne can benefit.  Most candidates are women over the age of 35 who experience pigmentation irregularities, dull, lackluster skin and clogged pores.  This is also an excellent choice for clients that are not candidates for chemical peels.

If you think this buzz-worthy treatment sounds like something you’d like to try, contact YoungerMeMD at 215-892-1230 or schedule an appointment with Lisa by emailing skincare@bodylogicmd.com.
