Dermaplaning at Home – How to Get Professional Results

Dermaplaning is a popular skincare technique involving the use of a small blade to exfoliate skin, as well as to remove light, vellus hair on the face. It’s often performed at a dermatologist’s or plastic surgeon’s office, where the procedure may be a bit more intense and delve deeper into skin; but, you can do it yourself at home as an easy way to freshen your complexion.

What are some dermaplaning benefits?

If you’re looking to soften the appearance and texture of your skin – or to fight aging – dermaplaning might be right for you. It’s especially great for treating rough, coarse and dry skin, as well as other common skin issues that come with time and age, such as uneven skin tones, wrinkles, fine lines or unwanted facial hair. Dermaplaning helps by smoothing the texture of skin so it looks more even, glowy and fresh overall. It keeps skin balanced and soft, giving it a more youthful and hydrated feeling and noticeable shine. It also eliminates dead skin cells to make your skin appear more polished and clean – and to improve application of skincare products and cosmetics (You’ll love the way makeup just glides right on!) So how is dermaplaning done at home? A dermaplaning tool is required (which, as with the use of any beauty tool, can be daunting!). Luckily, it’s easy to do, and it’s safe. Use this handy guide to get started.

How to dermaplane at home

Begin by easing your way into the process. Do it monthly when first starting out – this will get you into the swing of things so the process is effective but also not done too frequently as to irritate your skin, advises dermatologist Dr. Anna H. Chacon. From there, you can evaluate whether more time is needed between sessions (for example, six weeks) or if you can step it up to biweekly or even weekly. It will depend on how sensitive your skin is and how much you enjoy the practice. “Dermaplaning is typically performed using a specialized tool and held at a 45 degree angle to exfoliate the skin to remove peach fuzz, which reveals smoother skin,” Chacon notes. You want to stop any exfoliation – as well as the use of topical medications – about a week before dermaplaning, Chacon says. Both can increase skin sensitivity, and dermaplaning could cause irritation. “If you experience any burning, stinging or irritation, discontinue the treatment and investigate how you react to dermaplaning,” she says. If you have questions or concerns, it’s always a good idea to consult with a dermatologist or skincare specialist. They can help guide you so you stay safe and feel comfortable doing it yourself.

How to make dermaplaning even better

Combining certain beauty and skincare products with treatment can help alleviate redness and protect the skin. You may still have a slightly “sunburned” look for a day or so, but you can calm any irritation by using a soothing cream or even an overnight cream. It’s best to dermaplane at least a few days before any big events or outings. You can also take advantage of the time after dermaplaning to use certain products that benefit skin, since absorption will be maximized. Choose products containing vitamin C, retinol and hyaluronic acid, for example. Try a face serum with vitamin C, a moisturizing cream with hyaluronic acid or a serum with both hyaluronic acid and retinol combined. And you can sleep in this hydrating mask with hyaluronic acid overnight to wake up with a refreshed outlook.

When not to dermaplane

Most people—no matter what your skin type—can dermaplane. If you have very acne-prone skin, you may want to do it in a clinical setting with a doctor, just to be extra cautious. If you have any other skin conditions, be sure to talk to your dermatologist before trying it out. “It is important to note that dermaplaning is not advised in the setting of skin cancer, active cold sores or herpes, active skin conditions such as psoriasis or eczema, open sores or inflammatory acne that is active,” Chacon. So, wait for these to subside and consult with a skincare professional before dermaplaning.
