Stretch marks, uneven skin texture, decreased elastin and collagen production - these are just the many things that the skin and body go through with age and daily wear and tear. To counteract this, procedures like dermaplaning (also known as epidermal leveling) remove the outermost layer of the skin and encourage new skin cells to form.
So how does dermaplaning treatment work to improve skin quality and texture? By using a specific kind of exfoliation, this treatment removes facial hair like peach fuzz or other fine facial hair to give the skin a youthful appearance. With a skilled esthetician, even issues like an acne scar or wrinkles can be treated with dermaplaning the outer layer of your skin.
Dermaplaning is similar to other exfoliation processes like a chemical peel or dermabrasion where the outer layer of skin is removed to encourage renewed skin growth and to remove dead skin cells. By using a special scalpel called a dermaplane, an aesthetician can precisely remove dead skin and facial hair like vellus hair.
The skin that grows back will be smoother, more vibrant, and healthier since the exfoliation process encourages the body's wound-healing response. While dermaplaning is not a deep exfoliation process compared to laser treatment, it can still offer visible and long-term results with consistent application.
Dermaplaning may not be in the league of collagen induction therapy or hyaluronic acid fillers when it comes to process and the tools required, but it still requires extensive knowledge and experience to do correctly.

While dermaplaning doesn't have a lot of limitations as it's a physical process, there are some considerations that a client should keep in mind if they want to undergo the procedure.
A: For facial skin treatments, issues like open pores, pockmarks, deep acne scars, and peach fuzz respond well to dermaplaning treatments. It can also reduce milia and blackheads, though keep in mind that you should be careful to clean the area to avoid infections.
A: Overall, there are very few risks associated with the dermaplaning procedure. Aside from slight redness in the skin and increased skin sensitivity, most clients recover from dermaplaning after a day of bed rest. Rarer complications include scarring and infections, but these can be treated by the office or any general care aesthetician.
A: While dermaplaning can remove a few weeks of dead skin cells, your body will keep producing more as time goes by. As a result, your dermaplaning results will fade within three weeks to one month. However, always check with your doctor before going for further treatment.
