What Is Dermaplaning?

Have you been considering a Dermaplaning Facial treatment? 


Dermaplaning is a non-invasive, pain-free, luxury aesthetics facial treatment that removes the top layers of your skin. Originally touted as a possible cure for acne vulgaris in the 1970s, Dermaplaning has recently become a popular skincare trend amongst those wishing to keep their skin looking and feeling soft, glowing, and youthful.


This post details what dermaplaning is and the benefits to those considering the treatment.

What Is Dermaplaning?


Dermaplaning, also known as dermaplane facial, is a skin treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face using a sterile scalpel, leaving your skin looking and feeling radiant for up to 4-6 weeks. 

It is also known as blading or microplanning.


A single Dermaplaning treatment makes the surface of your skin smooth, youthful, and glowing (particularly when the treatment is finished off with a Gold Collagen Mask). The treatment is also used to get rid of the face’s “peach fuzz,” or tiny, fluffy hairs that appear on the face.


Dermaplaning can be used for many different skin treatments, including.


● Reducing the signs of old acne scars

● Promotes the appearance of smoother, looking skin 

● Minimises the look of dry, flaky skin

● Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles

● Enables deeper product penetration

● Suitable for all skin types and tones

What Is Involved in Dermaplaning?


Your skin is subjected to toxins, irritants, and sun damage regularly, which can make the top layer of your skin look dull and make you appear older. Dermaplaning removes damaged, dead skin cells, revealing younger skin cells as you look in the mirror.


Dead skin cells and scar tissue that could be making your skin’s surface appear irregular can be removed by pointing a sterile scalpel at a 45-degree angle and gliding it slowly over your skin.


The Dermaplaning Procedure


Dermaplaning is a safe procedure that a qualified and certified Practitioner administers. Dermaplaning isn’t a treatment you should be doing yourself at home.

The treatment itself is pain-free, and typically the treatment time is up to 60 minutes.


A brand new, one-time use, sterile scalpel is used for each treatment, removing dead skin cells and hair or “peach fuzz” from your face. Most customers don’t feel any pain, although a tingling sensation can be felt for some people, with some customers finding it relaxing and enjoyable.

What Happens to Your Skin After Dermaplaning?


After the treatment, your skin is treated with a Gold Crystal Collagen Hyaluronic Skin Mask. This is left on your face for up to 30 minutes, leaving your face feeling wholly hydrated and glowing for days.


The Benefits of Dermaplaning


Greater penetration from Skincare Products

After a dermaplaning facial, you can expect a deeper penetration level from your skincare products. This will allow the ingredients in the products to work correctly on and under your skin.


Smoother Brighter Skin

Instantly, after the dermaplaning procedure, you will notice your skin is brighter and smoother.


Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Dermaplaning will help reduce fine lines on your face due to the smoother appearance that your skin has after the treatment.


Smoother Make-Up Application

If you regularly wear makeup after your treatment, you will notice your makeup goes on a lot smoother due to the elimination of patchy or blotchy skin.


Reduced Pores

The holes in your face where hair grows are known as pores. The pores enlarge when there is an excessive build-up of dirt and oil, as well as hair. Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation that can help you shrink your pores.


More Effective Acne Treatments

If you suffer from acne, dermaplaning can help your treatments to become more effective; this is due to the removal of fine facial hairs and builds up in your pores, allowing the treatment to penetrate the skin more deeply.


No Chemicals

As there are no harsh chemicals in this treatment, dermaplaning doesn’t require the same ‘downtime’ as other facial treatments do. This means you can get on with your life without complicated aftercare treatments.



At Renewed Skin Aesthetics, dermaplaning costs £50 for a 1-hour treatment. This makes it a more effective solution to other facial treatments and can give you instant, noticeable results.
