What is Dermaplaning and How Does it Work?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin treatment that exfoliates the skin to remove dead cells and vellus hair or “peach fuzz.” The procedure is also called blading or microplaning. The treatment is done with a dermatome, a scalpel tool that looks like an electric razor.
Dermaplaning is an effective treatment to rejuvenate the skin, remove deep acne scars, improve uneven pockmarks, and other conditions including:
● Dull skin
● Dry skin
● Sun-damaged skin
● Fine lines and wrinkles
Dermaplaning has become increasingly popular as more people look for safe treatments that provide a natural look. It is relatively quick and painless yet will leave your skin smoother, brighter and provides a better canvas for all your skin care.
More About the Procedure
Dermaplaning is an affordable alternative compared to various types of invasive and non-invasive options. It is a painless procedure that may produce a tingling sensation as it is completed. It is an outpatient treatment that only lasts about 30 minutes.
At a 45-degree angle, your skin is exfoliated with the dermaplaning tool. After treatment, you may see slight redness on the skin for 2 to 3 days, but it should quickly subside. You will see immediate brightness in your complexion and will start to see full results in only a few days. It is recommended you make this procedure part of your consistent beauty regimen as it only takes about one month for dead skin cells to return.
Before you leave we will apply sunscreen, because of course you must protect your skin from the sun to avoid pigment blotches on your new skin cells.
The procedure is ideal for people of all ages, colors, and skin types. It benefits those who want to improve the appearance and health of their skin. People who have skin that is experiencing active or cystic acne are not good candidates.
The best way to confirm if you are a good candidate is by having a consultation with us at Sol
aesthetics. Each individual is unique and will get the best results with a customized treatment
The treatment targets vellus hair, which is the peach fuzz found on the “hairless” parts of the face, and other areas of the body. Terminal hair grows on the scalp, pubic area, some parts of the face, and underarms. Vellus hair is softer and lighter than terminal hair and grows back with the same texture and at the same rate.

Adding a chemical peel to your treatment will allow the dermis to be targeted more deeply. The combination of the two treatments yields greater results leaving your skin like a baby’s bottom. You will be able to more easily target environmental damage, aging, and other conditions.
We will create a customized treatment plan especially designed for you. Your skin type, conditions, goals, and lifestyles are all taken into account during a holistic assessment. Generally, the treatment removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells.
Your skin must have the chance to rejuvenate before your next session. On average, most people may do the procedure approximately every 3 to 4 weeks.
