Arizona’s hot, dry, sunny weather may be beautiful—but it is harsh on skin. Dermaplaning is a treatment designed to help rejuvenate your skin. It is a treatment using a fine blade to exfoliate, skimming away dead skin cells and hair so that your skin has a brighter, more youthful look afterward. Read below to learn more about dermaplaning benefits before and after your treatment.

Who Can Benefit from Dermaplaning?

Almost everyone can benefit from dermaplaning treatment! Anyone who wants smoother, exfoliated, glowy skin will benefit. This procedure is especially good for people who want quick results without any downtime.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Is dermaplaning good for your skin? Answering that question means learning how the process works. Dermaplaning can also be referred to as epidermal scraping or dermal resurfacing and it works by using an exfoliating blade to skim facial skin. As the blade moves over skin, it exfoliates away dead skin cells and hair.

Dermaplaning is useful to exfoliate away dead skin cells that lay on the top layer of skin, which not only gives you a brighter, glowing look, but helps skincare products work better, too.

Some people choose dermaplaning to remove fine hairs—the peach fuzz—from their face, which results in a smoother look and can make it easier to apply makeup.

How to Prep for a Dermaplane Session?

The great thing about dermaplaning is that it is a relatively risk-free procedure. You will not have to prepare for any downtime. Avoid tanning, spray tanning or sun exposure prior to the treatment along with any irritating skincare products since skin irritation can make the procedure more difficult. Prior to your appointment, cleanse your skin and avoid using skincare products.

What can be Expected After Dermaplaning?

With dermaplaning, you may see results directly after the session, though for many people, it can take a few days to see the maximum benefit. There may be some redness or irritation after your treatment, which should fade in two to three days. You will need to be extra careful about sun exposure—which can be difficult with Arizona’s sunny weather. Your provider will discuss, as well as provide, after care for you once the treatment has ended.

How is dermaplaning different from microdermabrasion?

Both of these treatments have similar effects, but microdermabrasion uses fine particles to “sand” your skin rather than a fine blade to scrape away dead skin cells.

Does dermaplaning hurt or cause cuts?

Dermaplaning should be painless, and when practiced by a professional, the risk of a cut is present, but very minimal.

How long does dermaplaning take?

Most sessions take between thirty and forty-five minutes.

How often should I have dermaplaning done?

As new layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz emerge, dermaplaning results start to fade in about three weeks. This means you can have dermaplaning done every three to four weeks in order to see continuous results.
