Dermaplaning Facial Guide

Dec 10

Sometimes when you look in the mirror, you see a lovely grin, dazzling eyes, or hair that is very shining. Other times, you could notice lumps, dark spots, or dull skin the most.


Let's face it; these perfectly typical skin flaws don't diminish your beauty. However, you are not required to share a residence with them.


Dermaplaning facials by professional Estheticians are here!


While microdermabrasion (a procedure in which a rapidly revolving brush produces intensive exfoliation) is frequently confused with dermaplaning, the latter has fewer side effects, requires less recovery time, and is suitable for a broader range of skin types. However, the outcome is still gorgeous, refreshed skin.


Do you intend to schedule a dermaplaning facial? Before setting an appointment, review the information below.


What is dermaplaning facial? 


It’s a minimally invasive procedure intended for your skin. For those looking to upgrade from a basic facial and get rid of buildup on their face, this facial offers the best results to your skin imperfections. 


Dermaplaning Process 


Also called blading or microplaning, this procedure aims to reveal fresher, less-damaged skin by removing the top layer of skin and peach fuzz. A specialist in dermaplaning carefully scrapes off dead skin and other impurities using a scalpel or a dermatome (like a sophisticated electric razor). Skin looks smoother and younger as a result.


A dermaplaning facial is recommended for anyone who wants to achieve any of the following:


  • Smoother skin
  • Brighter complexion
  • Fewer fine lines and wrinkles
  • Smaller pores


What to expect during a dermaplaning facial?


During your first appointment, your aesthetician will ask questions about your medical history and current skin care regimen. Be sure to tell them about any medications you are taking and any skin allergies or sensitivities you have. This will help them tailor the facial to your needs.


After that, your aesthetician will thoroughly cleanse your face then remove the layer of the skin using a scalpel or dermatome. This process will also get rid of any peach fuzz on your face.


You may feel a slight tingling or stinging sensation during the procedure. However, it is generally not painful.


Once the dermaplaning is complete, your aesthetician applies a hydrating mask to soothe your skin. They may also use serums or creams with active ingredients like retinol to improve their results.


Finally, your aesthetician will apply sunscreen to help protect your newly exfoliated skin from the sun's harmful rays.


The entire facial usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete.


What are the benefits of a dermaplaning facial?


There are many benefits of getting a dermaplaning facial, including the following:


Smoother skin: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, your face will feel softer and smoother. In addition, your makeup will go on more evenly and last longer.


Brighter complexion: Dermaplaning can also help brighten your complexion by removing dull, dead skin cells, resulting in a more youthful-looking appearance.


Fewer fine lines and wrinkles: Fine lines and wrinkles may be less noticeable after a derma-planing facial since the treatment helps to smooth out the surface of your skin.


Smaller pores: Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of large pores.


What are the side effects of a dermaplaning facial?


Dermaplaning is generally safe for most people. However, there are a few possible side effects, including the following:


Redness and irritation: You may experience some redness and irritation immediately after your facial. This is usually temporary and should resolve within a day or two.


Infection: There is a small risk of infection with any skin procedure. To help prevent this, follow any instructions your aesthetician gives you on caring for your skin after the treatment.
