Dermaplaning is one of the best cosmetic treatments if you’re looking for gentle and non-invasive treatment for dull and tired-looking skin. With regular skincare, your skin can eventually start looking dark, dull, and tired because of the buildup of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and surface debris. Dermaplaning smoothens the skin’s surface without lasers, injections, or downtime.

At Joli Beautique, we provide customized treatments and the safest dermaplaning tools to address your skincare needs in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that offers deep exfoliation, removing the uppermost layers of the skin (epidermis) with months of accumulated debris, dirt, oils, dead skin cells, and “peach fuzz.” Once the dead skin cells and debris are removed, your skin appears brighter, more radiant, and youthful. Furthermore, unclogged pores also minimize acne breakouts and other skin concerns.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning works in a manner similar to shaving. Your cosmetic provider uses a 10-gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the dead skin cells, debris, and peach fuzz from your skin’s surface. The scalpel is gently moved against your skin at a 45-degree angle to remove the unwanted debris without harming your skin. Once the pores are unclogged, they’re receptive to serums, nutrients, minerals, and other skincare products.

Side Effects of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a comfortable treatment with minimal side effects, such as mild redness, dryness, flaking, and irritation. You should avoid strenuous workouts and exfoliation for about 24 hours, but you can resume all other activities immediately. The side effects usually dissipate in a few hours, making dermaplaning the ideal treatment just before big events and photoshoots.

Dermaplaning FAQs:

What to expect with treatment?

Your dermaplaning treatment will be simple and painless. Your cosmetic nurse will examine your facial skin and curate the treatment plan. They’ll move a 10-gauge scalpel against your skin at a 45-degree angle to exfoliate the uppermost layers of your skin, improving your complexion. There’s no pain or discomfort, so there’s no need for anesthesia or numbing creams either.

When will I see the results?

You’ll see the results from dermaplaning immediately after the treatment — your skin will look glowing and radiant. The results will improve over several hours as the redness and mild side effects dissipate.

How many treatments do I need?

You should ideally repeat the procedure once every three to four weeks because that’s how long it takes your skin to accumulate dead skin cells, debris, and oils, causing clogged pores.

Is dermaplaning suitable for pregnant women?

Unlike peels, lasers, or injectables, dermaplaning is a mechanical exfoliation technique that doesn’t involve acids, chemicals, or external components. As such, dermaplaning is suitable for pregnant women.
