What are the Benefits of a Dermaplaning Facial?

By: Beauty Coordinators


There are many options for facial treatments, but some involve invasive measures or a long recovery period. Dermaplaning is a simple option that gives you the results you want without the side effects of microneedling or a chemical peel. Body+Beauty Lab is excited to offer dermaplaning for individuals who struggle with common skin concerns. So what is dermaplaning, and how long does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is the act of removing dead skin cells and peach fuzz using a special tool. At our medical spa, we believe that these facials are a safe and effective part of any skin care regimen. Our skilled staff can offer dermaplaning treatment by itself or combine it with other techniques to help you look and feel younger. Learn about your options by calling us in Philadelphia, PA to schedule an appointment.

What is dermaplaning?

You may have read about this advanced treatment on popular beauty blogs and websites. So what is dermaplaning? Dermaplaning is an exfoliation treatment that makes the skin feel smoother by eliminating dead cells on the surface of the skin. This facial also removes peach fuzz or facial hair that often traps dirt and oil. Body+Beauty Lab is happy to offer dermaplaning for adults of all ages and skin types. Our clients request dermaplaning for several reasons, including:

  • The skin appears softer and smoother

  • It safely eliminates excess facial hair

  • It reduces issues like acne scars and discoloration

  • It smooths out fine lines and creases on the face

  • Skin products can penetrate the skin more effectively

  • Results can be seen almost immediately

Candidates for dermaplaning

When you visit Body+Beauty Lab for a consultation, we begin by listening to your unique skin care concerns and goals. Facials are used to address signs of aging and improve skin that has been damaged by sun exposure or acne breakouts. When performed regularly, facials can even brighten sallow or dull skin. We can create a personalized plan to help take your skin to the next level.

Because dermaplaning is less invasive than other anti-aging methods, the results are also less pronounced. If you are struggling with deep creases or more extensive problem areas, our professionals in Philadelphia, PA may recommend another treatment path. Please inform a member of our team if you have an active acne breakout or extra sensitive skin. We will make sure dermaplaning techniques are right for your needs.

About your appointment

Once your treatment plan has been made, you will lie back in one of our comfortable procedure rooms as your facial is performed. Most facials begin with a deep cleaning to get rid of any dirt or oil that may interfere with your dermaplaning session. After cleaning the skin, we may apply steam to open up your pores. This is then followed by exfoliation through dermaplaning. The technicians at Body+Beauty Lab may massage a serum for more complete nourishment. At the end of your appointment, an SPF moisturizer will be used to protect you from UV damage.

What to expect afterward

Most people experience no downtime with dermaplaning and return to their day as normal. You may notice mild redness or irritation, but this is common and should fade away within 24 hours. To extend the benefits of your facial, we suggest asking one of our knowledgeable team members about developing an at-home skin care program. You can also return to our facility for future add-ons and treatments if requested. Many of our patients are excited to see how smooth and soft their complexion is once the side effects have faded away!

How long does dermaplaning work?

So how long does dermaplaning work? For optimal results, we recommend sticking to a regular skin care regimen and protecting your skin with a high-UV sunscreen. Following your facial, Body+Beauty Lab can also suggest certain products that will extend your results and enhance the appearance of your skin. During your consultation, we will let you know how often to schedule appointments to maintain your results on a long-term basis. Generally, you can expect the results of dermaplaning to last several from several weeks to several months.
