Benefits of Dermaplaning

A nearly instant way of perking your complexion up with smoother-looking, more radiant skin is with a non-surgical and simple dermaplaning procedure. This process is cost-effective, quick, and easily enhances the appearance of your face and the effectiveness of other skincare treatments or products.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure performed by trained clinicians at Dr. Erwin’s medical and cosmetic dermatology practice that can help freshen and brighten your facial appearance. During the process, a technician will take a surgical-grade blade and carefully drag it around the face at a precise angle to physically exfoliate the surface of the skin, remove fine hairs, and scrape away dead skin cells.

In its hair removal, dermaplaning is similar to shaving, and it’s a myth that shaving hairs make them grow back darker and thicker. Shaving has no effect on the way hair grows.

Main Benefits of Dermaplaning

Although it’s a simple procedure, dermaplaning can be a quick and great way to:

  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Even skin tone
  • Assist in reducing millia
  • Assist in reducing closed and open pores and minor breakouts associated with congested pores (blackheads)
  • Allows skincare products to penetrate better, making them more effective.

Because of its many benefits and essentially preparing the skin for further treatment, dermaplaning is frequently combined with other skincare procedures or high-quality products, although it can also achieve these benefits on its own to some degree.

Complementary Procedures

The many suggested add-on treatments that work well after dermaplaning are typically those that focus on nourishing the skin or penetrating beneath the surface for even deeper exfoliation. For that reason, we recommend HydraFacial or chemical peels for the best skincare treatment with dermaplaning.

HydraFacial is a three-step, 30-minute process that infuses your skin with rich, potent serums while exfoliating even further with fine crystals and gentle suction to physically eliminate impurities in your skin. Best of all, there are multiple different formulations that can be loaded into the HydraFacial handpiece, allowing you to customize your treatment for hydration, brightening, anti-aging, and more.

Chemical peels are also highly customizable, with varying ingredients and intensities netting different results depending on your skincare concerns or goals. The deepest chemical peels can address signs of aging like wrinkles and fine lines but require downtime. Lighter chemical peels are great for stimulating skin regeneration and helping prevent breakouts.
