What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment to remove dead skin and tiny hairs (peach fuzz) from your face. It’s essentially a thorough skin exfoliation treatment. Align Body & Wellness offers dermaplaning treatments to help you achieve a clearer and smoother complexion immediately.

How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a simple process in which a medical blade positioned at an angle is used to lightly scrape your top layer of skin. That dislodges dead skin cells, removes peach fuzz, and exposes your next layer of skin.

The dermaplaning process isn’t painful or intrusive in any way, but you may feel some mild tingling. Many people find the light and feathery strokes of the blade relaxing. After dermaplaning, skin-soothing substances and sunscreen are applied.

Is dermaplaning right for me?

You might need dermaplaning if you don’t like the way your skin looks and feels. Dead skin cells and tiny hairs can make your skin look dull, uneven, and dry. You may also have frequent breakouts if your dead skin cells clog your pores.

Many people choose to have dermaplaning treatment before other aesthetic treatments or before starting a new skin care regimen. Dermaplaning removes the barriers that might keep your skin from absorbing products, so you can get faster results from topical products after dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning is ideal for surface-level skin concerns, but if you also have deeper skin concerns or issues, for example, deep lines and wrinkles, a professional at Align Body & Wellness may recommend an additional treatment like injectables and fillers.

If you have active acne, you may be recommended to wait on the dermaplaning and focus on skin care until the blemishes clear up.

When will I see the results of dermaplaning?

Immediately after your dermaplaning session at Align Body & Wellness, you’ll notice that your skin feels smoother and looks better. High-quality skin care products can help you maintain this soft feel and youthful appearance between dermaplaning sessions.

How long do the results of dermaplaning last?

Dermaplaning can last for as long as a month. Your skin regenerates about every 28 days, so monthly dermaplaning can reveal your fresh layer of healthy skin.
