What is Dermaplanning?
Dermaplaning is a skin procedure that removes hair and dead skin cells from your face using an exfoliating blade.
It is also known as blading or microplaning.
This blade is like a scalpel but not sharp enough.
But any treatment with a blade should be done professionally and with the proper expertise.
You need a dermatologist who is experienced enough to treat you as well as take care of you.
And that is why you should know how to choose a dermatologist.

The short, delicate hairs on your face known as “peach fuzz” are also removed with it.
Most of them get this treatment done on the face, but you can get it anywhere on your body.
Anyone can be treated with any variety of skin, including those with:
- acne scars
- dull skin
- dry skin
- sun-damaged skin
- ﬁne wrinkles
Even if you don’t have these skin problems, dermaplaning is a great option for exfoliating your skin.
At Opulence Dermatology & Aesthetics, the procedure is carried out with utmost care, professionally and personally.
Let’s discuss the procedure details so you know better what to expect during the treatment.
Procedure of Dermaplaning
We will discuss the procedure from before to after the treatment is quite detail, so all you have to do is wait for that moment.
The moment where you get the treatment.
This information will make your treatment procedure a little smoother, so here we go!
A dermatologist will be performing this procedure but before that, they need to understand you and for that, they will:
- Discuss your cosmetic goals for the treatment
- Make sure your skin is healthy for the procedure by inspecting it.
- Give an explanation of what to expect before, during, and after dermaplaning.
- Review your medical background.
The dermatologist might click the pictures of the area to be treated.
Which will help you compare the before and after treatment changes in your skin.
Your dermatologist might even give you additional instructions that you will have to follow before or after the procedure.
For Example, they might ask you to stop smoking for a few weeks as it helps you heal better after the treatment.
Dermaplaning doesn’t require general anesthesia.
But around 30 minutes prior to the operation, your doctor may apply numbing cream or spray to your face.
Although you might experience some stinging or itching on your skin, dermaplaning is often not a painful procedure.
A dermatome is a specialized tool used by your dermatologist to remove the layer of the skin cells along with the hair.
The device has an electric razor-like appearance.
A tiny blade on the dermatome glides across your skin back and forth.
Like a shaving blade on your skin.
It softly removes the top layers of skin without making wounds in your skin.
As some layer of your skin has been scraped off, your skin gets a little sensitive.
To lessen redness, swelling, or irritation afterward, they may apply a soothing gel or ointment to your skin.
The treatment procedure might last from a few minutes to an hour and a half.
The duration of the procedure is dependent on the area to be treated.
You don’t need any downtime whatsoever after the treatment.
Now that the dead skin cells and the unwanted hair have been removed from your skin, it gives a fresh look to you.
Immediately following a dermaplaning procedure, you can notice that your skin appears brighter.
It usually takes a few days to get the full effects.
In the days that follow, you’ll be able to notice the benefits more clearly as any redness fades.
After the dermaplaning technique, your skin may be mildly painful, red, and puffy.
To ease any discomfort, the dermatologist may suggest over-the-counter painkillers.
Staying out of the sun is advised after the treatment.
As the skin becomes more sensitive, it has chances to be affected by the UV rays of the sun much more.
So either stay out of the sun or either make a routine to apply sunscreen which helps you protect yourself from the sun.
Well, dermaplaning comes with a lot of aftercare but it is all worth it with the benefits it provides.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
What’s the point of discussing a treatment if you don’t know its benefits, right?
Dermaplaning brings a truck of benefits that you can enjoy after the treatment.
Let’s take a look at them, shall we?
- Rejuvenated and revitalized skin
This procedure rejuvenates the skin by eliminating dead skin cells and encouraging the growth of new ones.
Hyperpigmentation, or the darker areas that can develop on the skin, is lessened and the skin tone is evened out.
Overall, the skin seems brighter and more youthful.
The skin’s surface roughness is smoothed away, and the patient’s complexion is made more radiant.
- Fewer wrinkles and fine lines
All of those fresh skin cells also aid in reducing the visibility of wrinkles and fine lines, delaying some of the early indications of aging.
- Peach fuzz is not a problem anymore
Scalpel facials are well renowned for their ability to rejuvenate the skin, but this procedure also controls the peach fuzz that bothers so many patients.
You’ll be astonished at how good you look after having those tiny hairs removed, even though they mainly appear to be invisible.
Your skin will feel smooth to the touch and practically sparkle.
Many patients report that after treatment, their face is as smooth and soft as a baby’s bottom.
This treatment’s ability to remove both the thin vellus hairs and the darker, more noticeable facial hairs is one of its benefits.
- Helps you build a good skincare routine
The initial few days following treatment are the best time to concentrate on your top-notch serums, moisturizers, and other components of your at-home skincare regimen.
You’ll benefit the most from those treatments because your shaved face and immaculate pores can thoroughly absorb them.
In the first few days following your treatment, facials and other aesthetic procedures are extremely helpful.
- You can use cosmetics easily
Once your face is free of peach fuzz and dead skin cells, your cosmetics will also apply much more smoothly.
Your morning makeup regimen will take less time, and once your face is set up, it will appear better.
Have you ever observed how after using foundation and powder, fine facial hairs tend to rise up and emerge?
After this procedure, you won’t have to be concerned about the appearance of those tiny hairs.
- Smaller and cleaner pores
This procedure deep cleans the pores of the face by removing debris, oils, and dead skin cells.
Your pores will look smaller on your face after they have been cleansed.
Due to the direct relationship between pore size and age, this results in a more youthful appearance.
- Gentle and soothing
Despite how frightening it may sound to have your face shaved with a blade, the procedure is incredibly soothing and delightful.
This is a delicate procedure that doesn’t use harsh chemicals or strain, tug or scratch the skin.
All skin kinds and tones can safely receive a scalpel facial because they are absolutely non-invasive.
There is no downtime required for this quick procedure.
Most appointments run no longer than an hour, and you can resume your schedule as soon as they are through.
Many people even schedule these procedures for their breaks or lunchtimes, leading some to affectionately refer to the service as a lunchtime facial.
