What can I expect during my dermaplane appointment?

on July 21, 2015

I’ve compiled a list of my most frequently asked Q&A’s regarding dermaplaning.

What can I expect during my dermaplane appointment?
Dermaplane treatments last about 20-30 minutes. Your face will be cleansed, and a sterile blade will be used to gently exfoliate your skin. This treatment removes the thin, top layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) through a gentle scraping process with a blade designed specifically for this process. This exfoliation process prevents dead skin buildup that can make small facial wrinkles and acne scars appear larger, and often – what gives skin the “ruddy” look.  Dead skin cells are what typically make your skin feel rough.

What can I expect after my dermaplane?
Dermaplaning is non-invasive and has a very low risk of any complications. It clearly is one of the safest skin rejuvenation procedures available – and my favorite process to offer client that are pregnant and/or nursing who require exfoliation/rejuvenation services but whom shouldn’t use chemicals. Some clients will experience some mild redness for an hour or so after dermaplane, but this is temporary. Personally, in the hour or two after I do my own dermaplane, I find myself “stretching” my jaw because my skin feels tight (this is good, right?!) -and the closest thing I can compare the sensation to is that for the first day my skin feels like it has a slight wind burn (with no redness). To the touch it is incredibly soft and hair-free! There is no downtime for this process and many clients have this during their lunch hour and return immediately to work.

When will I see results?
Immediately! However, optimal results require regular maintenance treatments. If your skin has lost it’s look of vitality, how many years did it take for it to get that way? It takes time (approximately 32 days) to regenerate new skin cells, and with each dermaplane process, you are building a better foundation for new healthy skin cells.

Can I combine my dermaplane with other treatments?
The answer to that is a resounding absolutely – yes! Not only can you combine a dermaplane with a chemical peel, or laser treatments, you should!  By removing the outermost layer of the epidermis, whatever rejuvenating treatment that follows will without a doubt penetrate deeper and have a much more long-lasting effect. All laser genesis treatments are started with dermaplaning. Below is an example of how I use dermaplaning in combination with Laser/IPL treatments for faster more efficient results.

Will the “peach fuzz” (or any hair on my face) grow back darker and thicker after a dermaplane?
No. This is a common myth, but the hair on your face is not the same as the hair on your legs or bikini line. It will not be effected in any negative way by dermaplaning. In fact, many clients provide testimony in regards to the reduction in volume of fine vellus hair that grows back after several treatments. Although dermaplaning is not an FDA cleared treatment for the permanent reduction of facial hair (as is laser), many clients would indicate that the reduction of fine vellus hair is an added bonus to this treatment.

Can anyone have dermaplane?

Anyone with general good health can have dermaplane, yes. Dermaplane works on all skin types and colors to produce excellent results, with no skin color change or scarring. Safe for teen acne as well as older adults with thinner/more fragile skin and pregnant women.

Regular use of dermaplane treatments will improve or eliminate superficial skin problems. However, it is not the most effective treatment for problems such as stretch marks, keloids (an overgrowth of scar tissue at the site of a healed skin injury) reducing fine-lined wrinkles, or very deep acne scars. Laser Genesis is far more effective in the treatment of these conditions.
