Dermaplaning and shaving are similar in method, so we can see why they may appear to be interchangeable services. The skincare experts at Belladerm MedSpa are here to identify the key differences between these treatments and how you should be practicing them.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating facial treatment that gets rid of debris, buildup, and vellus hair also known as “peach fuzz”. At Belladerm MedSpa, our advanced practice aestheticians use a medical-grade scalpel to exfoliate the skin. This treatment is quick, painless, and does a lot more than you may think!

How is it Different from Shaving?

While shaving is effective in removing unwanted hair, dermaplaning effectively exfoliates the skin while also removing vellus hair. When done by a professional, this scalpel exfoliation results in a broad rejuvenation of the treated area.

Dermaplaning Benefits

This precise removal of unwanted dead skin cells accelerates skin cell rejuvenation. The skincare benefits of Dermaplaning include:

  • Provides smaller and clearer pores
  • Targets fine lines and wrinkles
  • Promotes an even skin tone
  • Assists with acne-prone skin

When exfoliating the top layer of skin, you’re increasing your skincare regimen’s effectiveness by allowing your products to penetrate deeper. In addition, cosmetic applications go on smoother post dermaplaning treatment.

Can I Combine Dermaplaning with Other Treatments?

You can combine dermaplaning with other complimentary treatments. Here at Belladerm MedSpa, we offer dermaplaning as an add-on to classic facial treatments, HydraFacials™, and chemical peels.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliating facial treatment that benefits almost any skin type, even candidates with sensitive skin. We encourage scheduling a skin analysis with one of our trusted skincare experts to determine a treatment plan specifically for you.
