What is the technique?
This technique is safely performed by using a specialized sterile surgical instrument. Once the skin is properly prepped, the technician holds the skin taut and gently scrapes the skin with the blade held at a 45 degree angle. This removes both the vellus hair and the top layer of dead skin cells.
Is it safe?
Dermaplaning is extremely safe when performed by a professionally trained aesthetician utilizing DermaplanePro tools and techniques.
Once the vellus hair is removed will it grow back thicker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks.
(There are two types of hair that grow on our bodies: Vellus hair is the thin, fine, soft hair that typically covers the entire body. Terminal hair is the course hair that grows on the head, face in men, underarms, legs and pubic areas.)
Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
Can dermaplaning cause the skin to bleed?
Yes, excessive scraping, nicks and cuts can cause bleeding. That is why it is very important to have professional training using the correct tool and have hands-on practice before performing this treatment on clients.

What areas can be treated?
Dermaplaning is performed on the face, under the chin and sides of the neck. Dermaplaning should not be done on the eyelids or chest. Sometimes, technicians who are still learning practice on forearms and legs as the skin is tougher in these areas.
How often can this procedure be performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells. The technician should allow the skin to complete its normal skin cycle of approximately 21-30 days before repeating the treatment.
Can dermaplaning be performed with a chemical peel?
Yes. Dermaplaning is an excellent way to prepare the skin for a chemical peel.
Does the skin actually peel from dermaplaning?
No. When dermaplaning is performed as a prep for a chemical peel the visible exfoliation that the client sees will be as a result of the peel used in the treatment.
Who can be treated?
All skin types can benefit from dermaplaning. This is a great treatment for Global skin types IV-VI. Darker skin tones actually have more layers of skin so as they age the skin tends to sag rather than wrinkle. Dermaplaning removes these extra layers of skin, helps correct pigmentation concerns and provides a more youthful and healthy glow.
Typically clients over 35 are the best candidates and will return for regular treatments. It is highly addictive! Men can be dermaplaned on non-beard areas only but usually prefer microdermabrasion.
Who cannot be treated?
Clients with active acne outbreaks or cold sores should not be treated until lesions are healed. Dermaplaning is great for diminishing acne scars but should not be performed during active outbreaks. Clients with bleeding disorders or difficulty clotting should not be treated. Clients with diabetes not under control by diet or medication should not be treated. Clients undergoing cancer treatment should also not be treated.
Is there any downtime after Dermaplaning?
No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft, plus makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish. This is a must have procedure before an important social event or television appearance.
