How does Dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation that gently uses a sharp blade to remove dead skin cells, and facial hair or peach fuzz. The end result is brighter, more radiant skin. This exfoliation procedure is performed by using a sharp blade to scrape away at the skin's surface at a 45-degree angle. 

This non-surgical process is painless and requires no downtime. Your provider will begin by cleansing your face to remove any makeup.

Dermaplaning Benefits

Remove vellus hair (peach fuzz)
You'll immediately notice that dermaplaning effectively removes peach fuzz (vellus hair). This fine and soft type of hair only occurs on women's faces.
Exfoliate and remove dead skin cells
By exfoliating and eliminating dead skin cells, you'll achieve smoother-looking skin that appears brighter and more radiant. Plus, this treatment exfoliates away dead cells for a youthful-looking complexion.
Help manage minor breakouts
Dermaplaning is an excellent tool to clear pore blockages so your face can breathe easier. When pores become clogged with dirt and oil, bacteria from other people's faces may seep into them and cause breakouts. With regular dermaplaning sessions, however, you won't need to worry about this anymore!
Improvement of Home Skin Care Products
Dermaplaning improves the effectiveness of home skincare products by clearing away impurities from your skin's surface. This is because dermaplaning removes that layer of dead skin that often traps dirt and bacteria, making it easier for topical treatments to penetrate deeply into your pores.
Refresh and Lift Your Mood
The sound of the blade sliding across your face can help lift your spirits, providing a sense of serenity and relaxation to your day. Plus, research has indicated that this treatment may even contribute to improved mental health - so give it a try!
Prepping Your Skin for Chemical Peels, Microneedling and PRP
Prepping your skin before any of these treatments can make the process much more efficient. This means the results will last longer, and you'll enjoy more enjoyable skincare routines in the future.
Great for pregnant or breastfeeding women, sensitive skin, or anyone with allergies

BEFORE YOU BOOK

WHAT IS IT

Dermaplaning or dermaplane is a procedure that exfoliates the top layers of your skin and removes unwanted peach fuzz. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure for your skin. One of our providers will use a special instrument to shave away the uppermost layers and hair on the skin of your face. There is no pain involved in the treatment, but the patient might feel a scratching or stinging sensation on your skin during the treatment. 

AFTER CARE

There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning; however, our providers recommend staying away from vigorous or strenuous exercise for at least 24 hours after the treatment. 

Dermaplaning FAQs

How to Prepare Your Skin for Dermaplaning

Prior to the procedure, use a gentle cleanser and tone on your face thoroughly. This will prevent any bacteria from causing breakouts after the procedure.

What Are the Side Effects of Dermaplaning?

After dermaplaning, you may experience redness in your skin for a few hours. But can go back to your normal skincare routine after a few hours as there is no downtime associated with this treatment.

How is dermaplaning different from shaving?

Dermaplaning is used for exfoliation of your skin, while shaving aims at only removing hair. When having this procedure done, your Livio provider will hold the instrument at a 45 degree angle, gently scraping away dead cells and vellus hairs on your face.

Does Dermaplaning Make Your Facial Hair Grow Back Stubbly?

Contrary to popular belief, dermaplaning does not cause facial hair to grow back thicker or darker. When performed at an angle by a provider, the provider cuts hairs at 45 degrees so they grow back tapered and soft – much like the vellus hair already on your face.  When regrowth appears, it grows in very similar in texture to natural vellus hair growth.

To prevent dryness after your treatment, apply a rich, hydrating mask or moisturizer after the treatment. Additionally, it’s beneficial to apply sunscreen daily or weekly for the first few days following your dermaplaning session.

Can I do dermaplaning safely at home?

Although you can do dermaplaning yourself at home, it’s safer to consult a licensed aesthetician or board-certified Nurse or Nurse Practitioner for the procedure. Someone without the required experience may cause cuts or infections during dermaplaning.

Is dermaplaning and scrub the same?

Dermaplaning differs from scrubs in that it doesn’t remove the outermost layers of your skin; rather, Dermaplanning gently scrapes away that top layer and eliminates vellus hair (or peach fuzz), leaving your face smoother and clearer.

How Dermaplaning Enhances Other Products or Procedures?

Skin can be a difficult area to improve, making traditional exfoliation methods ineffective. A professional dermaplaning treatment will clear away dead cells that make your face appear dull, as well as remove fine facial hair for smooth, even-toned skin. After your Dermaplaning, your makeup will set more evenly and smoothly. Additionally, your skin cleansers will be better able to penetrate your skin and you will see better results.

Does Dermaplaning cause breakouts?

No, dermaplaning can be an effective treatment for mild to moderate pimples and blemishes. The exfoliation process eliminates dead skin cells and peach fuzz (the short, soft hair on your face) which may clog pores with dirt and oils.

Your acne serums and treatments will penetrate deeper into your skin, helping prevent new blemishes from forming. Our trained aesthetician will use a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle to gently scrape away dead skin and peach fuzz from your face.

To ensure optimal skincare after the procedure, avoid harsh skincare products and ensure you have a thorough cleansing routine in place.

Selecting the ideal professional for your dermaplaning session is essential to achieving successful results. They’ll be able to accurately assess your skin type and decide if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

Additionally, it’s essential to follow aftercare instructions for dermaplaning in order to prevent future breakouts. For instance, applying a hydrating toner and applying skin-friendly sunscreen after the procedure can help minimize the likelihood of these issues developing.

Can Dermaplaning Help Melasma or Rosacea?

It is an ideal solution for patients suffering from skin dullness and hyperpigmentation issues, such as age spots or melasma. It can significantly reduce symptoms of rosacea. This sterile specialized blade can be used on all areas of the face, including the forehead, cheeks and chin.

How long does dermaplaning last?

Dermaplaning doesn’t provide permanent results, but the procedure does free your skin of peach fuzz and dead cells. On average, these effects last two to four weeks depending on your skin type and the frequency of treatments; however, they may last longer or shorter depending on individual differences.

Does Dermaplaning Hurt?

The only side effect of dermaplaning is mild redness in the hours following the procedure, which usually goes away quickly with application of moisturizer. However, if you experience any rash, pain or tingling afterward it’s best to consult a medical professional immediately.

How Long After Dermaplaning Can I Wear Makeup?

After Dermaplaning, you can apply foundation and powder. However, avoid any products containing exfoliants during this time as this will cause irritation to your skin. 

If you are uncertain whether makeup can be applied after dermaplaning treatment, speak to your provider at Livio. They will give you a definitive answer and explain how best to care for your skin afterward.
