Does dermaplaning hurt?

Dermaplaning is an incredibly comfortable procedure. While it may seem scary in principle, when performed by an experienced esthetic professional, dermaplaning is simple, fast, effective, and never hurts. While many patients know that dermaplaning can not only remove dull skin, but also vellus hairs on the face, that means that some may assume the process is as painful as waxing, threading, or tweezing. However, this is simply not the case. Your provider will use a scalpel to gently remove the upper layers of your dermis and the peach fuzz that covers most of your face. This process takes approximately 30-45 minutes and reveals softer, more radiant skin that will absorb topical products more efficiently and allow for smoother application of makeup.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

The number one and most obvious benefit of a dermaplaning session is the removal of fine vellus hairs from the face. These “baby hairs” can often be difficult to remove without pain, and cause caking or pilling of makeup. Dermaplaning quickly and easily removes these hairs. Additionally, the removal of the uppermost layers of skin can help reduce hyperpigmentation, as well as keep pores clear to reduce acne. The fresher skin revealed after your dermaplaning session will be more able to effectively absorb topical treatments, including those used to control acne breakouts. The microtears induced in your skin by this process can also cause your body’s natural healing response to kick in, resulting in greater production of collagen in the treated areas. Continued use of dermaplaning as a regular part of your skincare regimen can help reduce visible signs of aging.

Is dermaplaning the same as microdermabrasion?

Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are two distinct treatments and should not be confused with one another. Microdermabrasion uses a targeted device and fine crystals to remove the uppermost layer of dead skin from the face. It will also use suction to remove debris from the surface of your skin as well as congested pores. It is often considered too abrasive for patients with sensitive skin. Additionally, microdermabrasion cannot remove vellus hairs from the face. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, uses an extremely sharp blade to gently remove hair and even more of the upper layers of your skin than microdermabrasion. Overall, dermaplaning is considered gentler than microdermabrasion, making it a better option for patients with sensitive skin. However, those with active acne breakouts should discuss the risks and benefits during a consultation to determine whether dermaplaning is a good choice for them.

When considering dermaplaning as a treatment option, it is incredibly important to be discerning about your provider because the treatment requires a skilled and steady hand to be safe and effective.If you are interested in dermaplaning in Myrtle Beach, SC, contact Dunes Medical Solutions Spa today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced esthetic providers.
