What is dermaplaning? Dermaplaning, by definition, is a safe exfoliation, performed by a professionally trained skincare specialist which works to remove the top layer of skin cells. Dermaplaning is highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars, while leaving the skin feeling smooth, supple and rejuvenated.

The Dermaplaning Procedure 

The procedure usually takes about 20-30 minutes and lasts up to three weeks. It is recommended to wait that long just so that there are enough dead skin cells to remove from the surface of the skin. However, everyone is different. Speak to your local esthetician to figure out a schedule that works best for your skin. 

Post-procedure,it is important to note that your skin will be extremely vulnerable. Although it is a low-risk procedure, some side effects might include redness or the development of whiteheads or scars on the treated area. All side effects are rare, however are still a possibility. Your face can be sensitive for up to a week after the treatment, so be sure to avoid any harsh chemicals in the meantime.
