What is Dermaplaning?

Are you looking for a skincare treatment that can leave your face feeling smooth and looking radiant? Dermaplaning might be just what you need! At American Institute of Beauty, we offer a Clinical Skin Care program that goes beyond the basics that includes the ability to learn how to perform a dermaplaning skin treatment. So, let’s dive into what dermaplaning is all about!

The Basics

Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells and fine hair from the face. This process not only exfoliates the skin but also allows for better product penetration and smoother makeup application.

The Benefits

  1. Instant Results: One of the most appealing aspects of dermaplaning is the immediate improvement in skin texture and tone. You’ll leave with skin that feels incredibly soft and looks radiant.
  2. Exfoliation: By removing the top layer of dead skin cells, dermaplaning helps to unclog pores and prevent breakouts. This can be especially beneficial for those with acne-prone skin.
  3. Smoother Makeup Application: Without the fine hairs and rough patches, your makeup will glide on effortlessly and look more flawless.
  4. Enhanced Product Absorption: Post-dermaplaning, your skincare products can penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective.
  5. Non-Irritating: Unlike some exfoliation methods that can irritate sensitive skin, dermaplaning is gentle and suitable for most skin types.


The Process

The procedure is relatively quick and painless, usually taking about 30 minutes. Here’s a step-by-step overview of what you can expect:

  1. Preparation: Your skin will be cleansed thoroughly to remove any dirt, oil, or makeup.
  2. Exfoliation: Using a sterile scalpel, the aesthetician will gently scrape the surface of your skin in small upward motions. This removes dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
  3. Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, soothing serums and moisturizers are applied to calm the skin and provide hydration.

Is Dermaplaning Right for You?

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types, including those with sensitive skin. However, if you have active acne or other skin conditions, it’s best to consult with a skincare professional before undergoing the treatment.
