Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation method that helps remove dead skin and hair from your face and neck. This technique is administered by an esthetician with a small scalpel or razor that gently grazes your skin to remove said skin and hair. And yes, it is painless!
Here’s my experience…
I chose to have my dermaplaning appointment set at Mara’s Med Spa. Not only do I love their skincare products, but I’ve had the best facial experiences in her clinic as well. My treatment was done by the lovely Sarah, and I had her walk me through the entire process so that I could share it with all of you!
To prepare for my dermaplaning treatment, I made sure to thoroughly wash my face and remove any makeup before going to my appointment. Once there, Sarah cleansed my face with an alcohol swab just to make sure that my skin was completely makeup and dirt-free. After that, it was time to start the dermaplaning! Sarah used a very small scalpel in gentle sweeping motions to remove all of my peach fuzz and dead skin. She barely had to apply any pressure to remove it all and I was genuinely surprised to see just how much hair I had on my face!
The entire treatment took about 15 minutes from start to finish and left my skin looking and feeling incredible. As much as I wanted to touch my face, Sarah advised that to avoid breakouts I should not run my fingers over my skin (ha!) and clean my makeup brushes thoroughly before using them. Sarah also recommended that for the best results this treatment should be done about once a month, or every four weeks. That way your skin will be dead skin-free and ultra-soft.
Now that I’m a few weeks out and almost ready for my next dermaplaning appointment, my face has continued to feel rejuvenated and clear of unwanted dead skin. I could not recommend this treatment enough. However, one thing to note is that consistency may be important. I’ve had friends tell me they noticed their peach fuzz growing back thicker after the treatment, so you would need to keep up with it to keep your skin feeling smooth.
