Dermaplane – Phoenix, AZ
What is Dermaplaning (Dermaplane)?
Skin cells die and accumulate on our faces, creating dullness, wrinkles, blemishes, etc. In other words, your skin isn’t glowing.
Dermaplaning is a safe exfoliation procedure that will remove the dead cells, along with that fine, “peach fuzz” hair (vellus hair), from your face.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning is a hair removal procedure where an aesthetician or doctor uses a medical-grade scalpel to gently scrape off dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face. Using the scapel held at a 45 degree angle, the blade is brushed along the skin, sort of like shaving with a straight edge. This manual exfoliation procedure is similar in theory to microdermabrasion and also triggers the skin cell regeneration process. It is only performed on the face and not for shaping eyebrows, since eyebrow hair is much thicker.

Who Should Avoid Using Dermaplaning?
Not everyone is a candidate for this treatment. Those with active acne or rosacea breakouts should avoid dermaplaning. Skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis could be worsened and you’ll want to stay clear if you are sunburned.
Additionally, people with active and cystic acne are not good candidates for dermaplaning, as it may make your skin more irritated.
How Often Do I Need Dermaplaning?
This depends a lot on your skin type. In general, you’ll want to wait until your skin cells replenish. This is usually 3 to 4 weeks, so most people are able to get one dermaplane done monthly. Those with sensitive skin might limit dermaplaning to once every three months. You can talk with your provider to determine the best schedule for your skin type.
Possible Risks & Side Effects
Dermaplaning is considered to be a low-risk skin care procedure. Possible side effects can include slight redness in your face for up to a few days post treatment.
Because dermaplaning will exfoliate your skin, you are exposing ‘new skin’ and you’ll need to be extra cautious about sun exposure. Too much exposure to the sun could reverse the effects of the treatment. So, if you like to spend time in the sun, you should use caution. For the first couple of weeks after your dermaplane, be sure to use sunscreen.
Does Dermaplaning Hurt?
Although the thought of a razor sharp blade sliding across your face may sound scary, it’s not actually painful at all. It’s similar to shaving. You’ll feel it a little, but it doesn’t hurt.
