How Long Does It Take to Recover from Dermaplaning?

There is no recovery or downtime with dermaplaning.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation and is the perfect add-on treatment to lasers, peels, and facials to enhance results. It removes “peach fuzz” on the skin, removes 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells, and promotes the penetration of skin care products.

Are You a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is generally safe for all skin types, but it’s important to consult with a qualified aesthetician before undergoing the procedure. Dermaplaning should not be done if you have active acne breakouts, open wounds, or sunburns.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

There are many benefits of dermaplaning, especially when complemented with another treatment. Benefits include:

  • Removal of Peach Fuzz
  • Removal of Dead Skin Cells
  • The Promotion of Penetration of Skin Care Products
  • Rejuvenated Skin
  • Helps to Soften Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  • Aids with hyperpigmentation/uneven-skin tones

What Are the Risks of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure, especially when done by a professional. The most common side effect of dermaplaning is temporary redness and inflammation of the skin. This usually subsides within a few hours after the procedure.

How to Prepare for Dermaplaning

While this is a quick and easy procedure, there are a few steps to take before your appointment to ensure the best results. Before you come to Skin Technique, we ask that you:

  • Refrain from exfoliating the face 5 days before
  • Do not wax the area 2 weeks before
  • Avoid excessive sun exposure
  • If you have an extreme breakout, we ask that you reschedule your appointment.

What to Expect Post Dermaplaning

Immediately following your dermaplaning procedure, you will see results; however, there may be some slight redness and inflammation of the skin. The full results of your session will be seen roughly 48 hours post-procedure.

Dermaplaning Recovery & Timeline

There is no recovery or downtime associated with dermaplaning; however, we ask that you stay out of direct sunlight, use a gentle cleanser on your skin, and not exfoliate. If you would like, you can book your following dermaplaning procedure before you leave the clinic!
