Dermaplaning Q & A

CN Medical Aesthetics

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. An aesthetician uses a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions.

Dermaplaning leaves your skin brighter, smoother, glowing, and more youthful. The only people who can't dermaplane are those with active pustular acne.

What does the Dermaplaning procedure involve?

The procedure involves the use of a scalpel, which curves into a sharp point. The blade is used on clean, dry skin on the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. "You can expect to see an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, while the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and the removal of fine facial hair.

Why is Dermaplaning Beneficial?

Removing the peach fuzz is beneficial since the fine hairs trap debris and oils and give skin a dull look. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well. It's the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments.
