How Often Should You Have a Dermaplaning Facial?

By: Beauty Coordinators


Dermaplaning facials can remove peach fuzz and dead skin cells by using a unique tool that mimics the act of shaving by using a scalpel type instrument. Individuals can remove unwanted facial hair and dead skin with this more in-depth exfoliation treatment. It can also help alleviate skin that is itchy, dry, and tight. So, how often should you consider getting this type of facial rejuvenation treatment? Our trained experts at Body+Beauty Lab proudly offer dermaplaning, along with an array of other aesthetic services, to improve the health of your skin. If you are looking for an effective way to enhance your skin's beauty, then find your perfect treatment by scheduling an appointment or an online consultation with Body+Beauty Lab in Philadelphia, PA today.

What does dermaplaning do?

There are ways to remove dead skin cells and reveal a fresher, smoother complexion without an extensive procedure or downtime. Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that uses a tool that gently scrapes the skin's surface to remove dead skin cells, and even facial hair or peach fuzz. Following treatment, a patient's face will feel incredibly soft, giving patients a smooth foundation without harsh exfoliators. However, like any skin care treatment, it should be performed by a professional or trained expert to ensure the right results.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a highly effective exfoliation treatment that can significantly improve the overall texture of facial skin by creating a more uniform, smoother surface. It also can help improve the appearance of common skin concerns, like minor acne scars, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, dull, or uneven skin tone, by removing dead skin cells that act as a barrier on the top layer of our facial skin. Dead skin cell buildup and vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) can prevent restorative treatments and skin care products from effectively addressing issues that keep skin looking vibrant and beautiful. Dermaplaning treatments can reveal brighter-looking, smoother skin, without peach fuzz. So, how often do you need to have dermaplaning sessions?

How often should you dermaplane?

The body creates a new top layer of skin approximately every 30 – 45 days and, ultimately, sheds dead skin cells in the process. However, some dead cells remain on the surface longer than they should. Women can also struggle with unwanted facial hair, which can interfere with makeup application. Dermaplaning targets these issues by gently exfoliating or removing peach fuzz and dead skin cells that sit on the top layer or epidermis. Results are almost instant, and patients are left with smoother skin that looks refreshed.

A question typically asked by patients is, "How often do I need dermaplaning sessions?" Since our skin naturally resurfaces itself once a month, and hair does eventually grow back, this facial treatment is not a permanent solution. The skin experts at Body+Beauty Lab will develop a personalized treatment plan during a consultation and help each patient evaluate their skin to choose the best schedule and avoid over-exfoliation. Most Philadelphia, PA patients do repeat dermaplaning sessions every 4 – 6 weeks to keep skin smooth, healthy, and looking vibrant. With a commitment to good skin care at home and regular appointments at Body+Beauty Lab, patients can keep their skin glowing and looking more youthful for years to come.
