Pre-Treatment Guide For Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that uses a sterile surgical blade to gently remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of the skin. This non-invasive procedure reveals a smoother and brighter complexion, allowing for better absorption of skincare products and a flawless makeup application.

How to Prepare for a Dermaplaning Treatment:

To ensure the best possible results and a comfortable treatment experience, please follow these guidelines prior to your Dermaplaning appointment:

  • Let your provider know if you have any active skin infections, lesions, or cold sores.
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before the treatment.
  • Discontinue the use of retinoids, exfoliating agents, and any other harsh skincare products for a few days prior to the procedure.
  • Inform your provider about any medications or supplements you are currently taking.
  • Arrive with clean, makeup-free skin on the day of your treatment.
  • Avoid waxing, chemical peels, or other exfoliating treatments for at least one week prior to dermaplaning.

What to Expect During Your Dermaplaning Treatment:

During your dermaplaning treatment, your provider will use a sterile surgical blade to gently scrape the surface of your skin at a 45-degree angle. This process removes dead skin cells and vellus hair, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion. The treatment is painless and generally well-tolerated. Some patients may experience a mild scraping sensation or temporary redness, which typically subsides within a few hours.
