Dermaplaning Frequently Asked Questions

Fresh, vibrant skin is a common goal among everyone. No one wants dull, lifeless skin that lacks glow and shine. The difficulty comes in finding a regimen that works well for you and produces the desired results. A great, non-invasive, way to refresh your skin is dermaplaning.


Today Emerge Medical Spa answers frequently asked questions about dermaplaning and its benefits.


What is dermaplaning? 

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive procedure where a scalpel, or another tool, is used to scrape the peach fuzz (also known as vellus hair) and dead skin cells off the face. The scalpel is scraped gently across the skin by a medical professional to exfoliate the face by removing the outer, older layer of skin.


Is dermaplaning painful?

Dermaplaning is not at all painful, and some people report that it feels relaxing. The scalpel doesn’t cut or injure the skin in any way, and the sensation is akin to shaving your legs.

How is dermaplaning different than microdermabrasion?

Microdermabrasion produces similar results but uses a different technique. With microdermabrasion, an exfoliator is sprayed on the skin and is gently removed, taking away dead skin and cleaning out pores. In dermaplaning, the skin is manually scraped with the scalpel by a technician.


Does dermaplaning cause any side effects?

Dermaplaning has minimal, if any, side effects. It is gentle and non-invasive, so there is no pain or soreness after. Some people may find their skin is a little red or slightly irritated for a day or so after the procedure.
