Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning

Derma Planning leaves a radiant complexion that more easily absorbs moisturizers and creates a smoother “canvas” for applying cosmetics. In fact, we at Sglowic recommend derma planning because the removal of dead skin cells helps in the application of makeup!

Dermaplaning is a skin treatment that uses an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. A dermaplane can encourage skin health and improve appearance.

Although it sounds similar to dermabrasion, dermaplaning is a completely different exfoliation procedure—one that’s much easier on your skin. During a dermaplane facial, we cleanse your skin, and then lightly scrape the skin of the entire face with a surgical-grade scalpel, much like shaving. This process gently removes dead skin cells and fine vellum hair since the removal of dead skin encourages skin-cell turnover and new growth, dermaplaning can even out skin tone on the face. Fine vellum hairs can trap dirt, oil, and other foreign particles, so their removal encourages cleaner skin.

Frequently Asked Questions

The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has aging, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.
Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but Dermaplaning is entirely painless. There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes heal within 24-48 hours.
Hyperkeratosis is a build up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a chemical peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in a more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a chemical peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together they promote new skin growth and target problems such as aging, sun spots and environmental damage.
Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.
