How Do I Prepare For Dermaplaning

How Do I Prepare For Dermaplaning?

In the realm of skincare, dermaplaning is currently trending highly. You may have overheard your neighbor Jill, among others, gushing about how wonderful their skin felt after receiving treatment.

However, dermaplaning has been around for quite some time. Facial “shaving” has been used as an anti-aging treatment by Japanese women for decades. Only in the past several years has it become popular in the West. What better approach is there to remove the peach fuzz and show the radiance beneath? However, there are a lot of conflicting reports on social media about what you should do to get ready for your dermaplaning appointment.

This article will teach you all you need to know to get ready for a dermaplaning treatment. But first, let’s discuss what dermaplaning is all about.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-surgical method of improving the appearance of your skin. A medical professional will use a razor-like instrument to remove the outermost layer of skin.

Acne scars and other skin flaws can be less noticeable after a dermaplaning treatment. Even though it can help your skin look younger, it won’t slow aging. Some people also use Dermaplaning as a means of removing unwanted body hair. Because hair grows back, this is simply a short-term solution.

However, while the face is the most common location for the surgery, it can be done virtually anywhere on the body.

Preparing For Your Dermaplaning Appointment

One of our experts will hold a dermatome at a 45-degree angle to your skin and gently brush your skin to remove only the epidermal layer, all without causing any pain. It’s so realistic that you could think someone is giving you an accurate shave. No incisions are made, and no post-op bandages or ointments are required.

However, there are numerous things to think about in advance, just like with any other kind of cosmetic operation, and some of them are as follows:

1.) Consider Reaching Out To A Professional

You should consult a professional before arranging a dermaplaning appointment if this is your first time getting this treatment. Dermaplaning has minimal recovery time and few risks, but a pre-service consultation is still nevertheless recommended.

2.) Discontinue Using Exfoliation Products Or Services

Half of the results you achieve will come from facial home care. Stop using exfoliating products, such as retinol, serums, enzymes, face polishes, or scrubs.

Some side effects of excessive exfoliation are acne, hyper/hypopigmentation, redness, and dry skin. For the best results from an exfoliation service, you should wait until your skin has had time to regenerate its cells fully.

3.) Avoid Sun Exposure

Are you someone who has shaved while sunburned? What were your thoughts and feelings afterward? Picture yourself doing it with a blade at least ten times sharper than your average electric razor. We still advocate getting some sun (in moderation), but you should know that it can cause cell damage and make you more photosensitive than usual.

4.) If You Are Considering Waxing, Do It Before Your Dermaplaning Appointment

You should plan facial epilation services, including waxing, sugaring, and threading, for at least seven days before or fourteen days after your treatment.

Those who had planned on getting their facial hair waxed might cancel their appointment if they so choose. While dermaplaning does not directly affect hair follicles, monthly visits to the salon for both services could add to unnecessary waste.

It is recommended to have epilation (follicular hair removal) done for “whiskers” around the chin before service, but only if done promptly.

It is not the purpose of dermaplaning blades to easily glide over terminal hair. You should know that waxing and sugaring gently exfoliate the skin by removing dead skin cells. You should wait if you plan on getting any exfoliation done around the same treatment as your threading.

Keeping your skin in good condition requires that you keep your scheduled visits.

5.) If You Are Considering Botox Or Fillers, Do It After Your Dermaplaning Appointment

Only someone interested in skin care would read this post. This does not rule out the possibility that you have had cosmetic procedures like Botox or fillers done to improve your appearance.

Avoid scheduling any injectable procedures before your dermaplaning treatment. For four hours after receiving Botox injections, lying down is not recommended. To avoid disturbing the filler’s location, avoid getting any face procedures done for at least three to four days after the injection.

6.) If You Have Acne Or Open Wounds, Reschedule Your Dermaplaning Appointment

That’s a simple one. It would be dangerous to shave over an open incision with our sterile scalpel blade; therefore, we’re not going to. If you’re debating whether or not to reschedule your appointment, include images of your skin in an email to your service provider.

If you have any active acne or lesions, please do not bring them to your appointment. You will need to reschedule your work, and there may be a charge if you change the date.

Dermaplaning Effectiveness

In general, your skin will get smoother and more radiant, and substantially less peach fuzz will develop. After scheduling an appointment, you’ll immediately start seeing positive changes.

In addition to enhancing skincare products’ efficacy, dermaplaning cleans pores, makes them appear smaller, and imparts a more youthful appearance.

Skincare and makeup products differ from other skincare services because they do not penetrate the skin to any significant depth. However, after the top layer of dead skin has been removed, skincare and cosmetic products can work better.

Avoid Dermaplaning Home Kits

Is it possible to perform dermaplaning on one’s own, presuming it is as easy as shaving? Do not, under any circumstances, attempt “Do It Yourself” dermaplaning methods. Although you may find do-it-yourself dermaplaning tool sets in some online stores, we recommend staying away from them.

Dermaplaning is only for some, and only those with the training and experience to conduct it safely and effectively should attempt it. Attempting this at home is not without risk. The user will experience unnecessary distress.

Very sharp razor blades and faces do not mix unless you are a trained professional. The face is a vulnerable area, so if you’re considering purchasing do-it-yourself dermaplaning equipment online, you should think again.


Skin that has been dermaplaned is smooth and healthy looking. Be aware of its seeming ease of use. The cosmetic treatment works well for people of all skin tones and ethnicities.
