Dermaplaning is a is a noninvasive exfoliating skincare treatment that uses a blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning, blading, or the Scalpel Facial.
Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face. Dermaplaning brightens skin, allows for better product penetration, and reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Good candidates for dermaplaning
Patients with Active Acne Should NOT Dermaplane
Patients with oily, acne, or cystic breakouts are not good candidates for the treatment. If you have pustules (puss filled breakouts) then it is a good idea to postpone the appointment. If you have cystic acne, you can still proceed with the dermaplaning treatment but you would need to make sure your provider is experienced enough because the surface of the skin will not be smooth. (Dermaplaning with cystic acne is beneficial because it allows for any treatment products to penetrate deeper into your skin.)
