What is Dermaplaning and Its Benefits?

Need to exfoliate but tired of those boring sugar scrubs or stinky chemical exfoliators? Then say hello to dermaplaning, a non-invasive technique for removing the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal the bright, healthy skin beneath. During a dermaplaning session, a trained aesthetician will use a surgical scalpel to carefully plane off dead skin cells and any peach fuzz from the face, leaving it fresh and super smooth. Dermaplaning is typically safe for all skin types and can be done in a quick session right in our office – no anesthesia or hospital visit required. In this post, we’ll talk about all the benefits of dermaplaning and why you should try this innovative yet time-tested procedure.

Benefits of Dermaplaning


The main objective of dermaplaning is deep exfoliation, blasting through dead skin cells on the skin’s surface to encourage the development of new, healthy skin cells on the freshly exposed skin. We all know exfoliation is super important for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, keeping our skin texture smooth, and slowly getting rid of acne scarring. Use dermaplaning every 1-3 months to get rid of any dead skin cells you missed during your weekly gentle exfoliation sessions at home.

Increased Product Efficacy

Skincare products don’t really do well when they have to penetrate through a layer of dead skin, so exfoliation procedures like dermaplaning are great for removing that dead skin and allowing enriching skincare products to get into the skin’s layers, where they can do the job for which they are intended.

Smoother Makeup Application

You’ve spent a lot on those Kylie Cosmetics, so don’t let your final look be ruined by rough skin texture. Prep your skin like a pro with a quick, painless dermaplaning session, and your makeup will slide on just like butter.

Brighter Complexion

You’ll be surprised at how much cleaner and brighter your face looks after a dermaplaning session. The appearance of issues like hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and rough skin texture will lighten and fade away with consistent sessions, leaving you with a smoother, glowing complexion.

No Downtime

Dermaplaning is one of many cosmetic treatments we offer that requires no downtime, meaning you can come in for a dermaplaning session on your lunch break and get back to your life without interruption. For busy professionals who don’t have days or weeks to recover from cosmetic procedures, dermaplaning is the exfoliation procedure of choice.

The Dermaplaning Procedure

As we mentioned above, dermaplaning is a quick and painless procedure that we do right here in our Clearwater or Tampa offices. In just about 30 minutes, your trained aesthetician will scrape away all old, dead skin cells from your skin’s outermost layer, getting you back up and out the door in no time. You may have a bit of redness just after the procedure, but this usually fades within a few hours.
