How Often Should You Get a Dermaplaning Treatment?

Dermaplaning is a great way to remove pesky vellus hairs from your face and restore dry, tired and dull-looking skin. During your dermaplaning procedure, one of our experienced medical practitioners will use a 10-gauge micro-blade known as a dermatome, to gently scrape away dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz to reveal your bright and luminous complexion beneath. Often yielding dramatic results, many patients can’t wait to book their next dermaplaning appointment, but how long should you wait?

How Often Should Dermaplaning be Done?

It’s important to remember that dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment, and therefore it is essential to give your skin sufficient time to regenerate before having another session. Just like any other form of facial exfoliation, over-exfoliating can have adverse effects, such as leaving your skin dry and irritated, and therefore patients should wait at least four weeks before returning for another appointment. During your initial consultation, one of our estheticians will assess your skin type and condition and will be able to recommend a treatment schedule that suits your needs. In general, candidates with oilier skin are able to have treatments more frequently than those with dry or sensitive skin, but this can vary.

Dermaplaning Benefits

Dermaplaning is an extremely popular procedure in the US and provides many benefits including;

Brighter looking skin

Derplamning removes unwanted dead skin cells and promotes skin cell rejuvenation, leaving you with brighter, luminous-looking skin that glows from within. 

Fewer lines and wrinkles

Facial rejuvenation is also beneficial for those worried about the aging process. It helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and can even eliminate dark spots.

Hairless skin

During your dermaplaning procedure, the micro-blade not only removes dead skin cells but also facial hair too, leaving your skin silky smooth and free from the pesky peach fuzz that can make makeup application difficult. 

Improved skin texture and fewer breakouts

Although dermaplaning is not recommended for those with inflamed or broken skin, for those worried about breakouts or who have scars left by previous acne, dermaplaning can keep their skin calm and restore their skin texture. During the dermaplaning procedure, the micro-blade gently removes fine villus hair that traps oil close to the skin and gets rid of dirt and dead skin cells that can cause infection. The procedure can also help to reduce left-over redness from acne scarring by promoting skin rejuvenation beneath.

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning does not involve chemicals that can irritate the skin or light therapy that may not be suitable for some skin types. Therefore it is safe and effective for most people, regardless of their skin textures or skin tone. If you have unwanted facial hair, are trying to reduce the appearance of acne scars, wish to minimize fine lines, and promote a glowing skin texture, then dermaplaning may be right for you.  Even those with highly sensitive skin can see the benefits from a dermaplaning procedure; however, we do not recommend the treatment for those with active acne or broken skin.
