We all want a healthy, clear and radiant complexion. What we don’t want is dullness, breakouts, dead skin cells, uneven texture or pesky peach fuzz that traps debris and causes cakey makeup application. Dermaplaning is a gentle and painless procedure that can address these concerns, offering both instant results and long-term improvements.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a style of exfoliation that consists of lightly scraping the surface of the skin with a surgical scalpel. This removes dead skin cells and other residue that can clog pores, add texture and dryness to your skin, cause breakouts and contribute to an overall dull complexion. Dermaplaning also removes peach fuzz (vellus hair), leaving behind incredibly soft and smooth skin.

The shape of the dermaplaning blade allows it to easily and safely navigate the contours of the face. Dermaplaning can get rid of fine hairs in even the most sensitive and hard-to-reach areas, strands that typical hair removal methods like waxing and threading sometimes struggle to remove.

What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

Our Fresno dermaplaning treatments can:

  • Remove unwanted peach fuzz
  • Exfoliate dead skin cells
  • Even out skin texture
  • Revive a dull complexion
  • Promote increased cell turnover
  • Allow for smoother makeup application
  • Enhance the penetration of skincare products
  • Prepare the skin for other treatments

What Happens During a Dermaplaning Treatment?

Dermaplaning is a quick, comfortable and convenient procedure. After your skin is prepared, the dermaplaning blade will carefully be moved across your face. The process involves no pain or discomfort and is completely safe when performed by an experienced practitioner. When your dermaplaning treatment is finished, you can return to your regular activities with no downtime. The typical dermaplaning session lasts about 30 minutes.

What Should I Expect After a Dermaplaning Treatment?

Your skin may be mildly red and sensitive post-treatment. Please hydrate and be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher to protect against sun damage. For best results, do not apply makeup for 24 hours and temporarily discontinue the use of skincare products with ingredients that may be harsh or irritating.

What Results Can Dermaplaning Achieve?

You may notice that your complexion appears brighter immediately after your dermaplaning session. Your skin will have a healthy glow and feel softer to the touch. The benefits of dermaplaning also extend to your daily skincare and makeup routine. Removing dead skin cells will help your favorite skincare products penetrate more deeply and therefore be more effective. With a smoother surface for makeup application, your complexion products will glide on more easily, giving you a more natural and beautiful finish.
