Dermaplaning Q & A

How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive aesthetics treatment that helps your skin look and feel its best. The process uses a handheld, sterile blade similar in appearance to a medical scalpel. Your practitioner holds the blade at an angle and glides it over the surface of your skin. 

As the blade moves, it removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and impurities. This process reveals a layer of fresh, healthy cells. It also takes away all of your peach fuzz facial hair, creating a smooth and soft-to-the-touch finish. 


What kinds of skin issues can dermaplaning treat?

Dermaplaning is a good fit for a number of common skin issues. People turn to this treatment to address:

  • Acne
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Roughly textured skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Dull or dry skin
  • Sun damage

Because dermaplaning does not rely on chemicals, needles, or any form of light energy, it is a great choice for people who are not good candidates for these treatments. It’s also a good choice for those just beginning to explore medical aesthetics. 

While dermaplaning is a good fit for many, it isn’t right for everyone. If you have the following conditions, your practitioner might recommend another option:

  • Active acne
  • Eczema
  • Moles
  • Psoriasis
  • Cold sores
  • Skin tags
  • Active skin rash

Today’s medical aesthetics offer a wide range of options and a fit for virtually every set of needs. 


Is dermaplaning safe?

When you rely on a highly skilled practitioner like the team members at Butterfly MedSpa and Wellness for dermaplaning, you can expect a safe and effective treatment experience. Team members go through extensive training in sterile practices and skin health and understand how to perform these treatments without causing undue damage to your skin. 

Dermaplaning creates a deep exfoliating effect, but it is not painful. The sensation of having the blade moved across your skin can feel odd, but once you get used to it, the treatment process can be very relaxing. Your practitioner can also help you find the right skin care products to maintain and enhance your dermaplaning results.
