What is Dermaplaning and What Are the Treatment Benefits?

Do you often dream of offering clients smoother and brighter skin? If so, it's time to get to know dermaplaning! A favorite amongst skincare enthusiasts, this simple yet effective treatment is taking the skincare world by storm. But what exactly is dermaplaning, and why is it so popular?

Understanding Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation procedure that involves gently sweeping a sterile, surgical scalpel, such as a Phi Dermaplaning Scalpel, across the skin's surface. This technique not only removes dead skin cells but also that unwanted peach fuzz (vellus hair) that can dull our complexion. Unlike some other exfoliation methods, dermaplaning is non-invasive and doesn't involve any chemicals. It's a skin resurfacing procedure that essentially gives your face a ‘clean slate’, and takes about 30 minutes.

Why Choose Dermaplaning?

The beauty of dermaplaning lies in its simplicity and the immediate results it delivers. Here's why it's a worthwhile addition to your skincare routine:

Unveils Smooth, Radiant Skin

By removing the top layer of dead skin cells and hair, dermaplaning helps reveal the fresh, healthy skin underneath. The result? A smoother, brighter complexion that's sure to turn heads.

Enhances Product Absorption

With the barrier of dead skin cells and hair gone, your skin can absorb skincare products more efficiently and effectively. This means your favorite creams, serums, and oils can penetrate deeper and work even better. 

Paves the Way for Smoother Makeup Application 

Ever wonder how people achieve that smooth, 'airbrushed' makeup look? The secret is dermaplaning. By creating a smooth canvas, it allows for seamless makeup application. No more uneven spreading of foundation or unblended contour! 

Is Dermaplaning Suitable for Everyone? 

Although dermaplaning has numerous benefits, it's not suitable for everyone. It works particularly well for people with dry or mature skin. However, those with active acne outbreaks or sensitive skin conditions like rosacea should avoid it. As always, it's essential to consult a skincare professional before opting for any new skincare treatment.

Preparing for Dermaplaning

Before diving into a dermaplaning treatment, it's essential to ensure your client’s skin is ready. Please advise them to refrain from using any exfoliating products for at least three days before their treatment. If they are prone to have active acne breakouts or inflamed skin, it's important to wait until it is healed before coming in for a dermaplaning treatment. Remember, dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation, so it's crucial for your clients to protect their skin from the sun afterwards and keep it well hydrated.

The Bottom Line

Dermaplaning is a safe, effective, and quick method to achieve glowing, smooth skin. It's an excellent option for those looking to step up their skincare game and experience instant results. 

As a skincare professional, offering dermaplaning services can elevate your clients' experience and complement other skincare treatments. Unveil their skin's true potential and leave them feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to face the world.
