What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently remove the top layer of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (often referred to as “peach fuzz”). This process reveals a smoother, brighter complexion and allows for better absorption of skincare products. The procedure is suitable for most skin types.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

  • Smooth Skin Texture: Dermaplaning removes dead skin cells, resulting in a smoother surface and enhanced skin texture.
  • Radiant Complexion: By eliminating the outer layer of dull skin, dermaplaning reveals a more radiant and youthful appearance.
  • Better Product Absorption: Post-treatment, your skin is better able to absorb serums and moisturizers, maximizing their effectiveness.
  • Makeup Application: Makeup goes on more smoothly and evenly after dermaplaning, creating a flawless finish.
  • Non-Invasive: Unlike some other exfoliation treatments, dermaplaning is gentle and doesn’t require downtime, making it ideal for those with busy schedules.

What to Expect During Your Dermaplaning Treatment

At NAMTI Spa, our skilled estheticians ensure a comfortable and relaxing experience. Here’s what you can expect:

  • Consultation: Your esthetician will assess your skin and discuss your skincare goals to determine if dermaplaning is right for you.
  • Cleansing: The treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of your face to remove any makeup, dirt, and oil.
  • Exfoliation: Using a sterile surgical scalpel, the esthetician will gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.
  • Post-Treatment Care: After dermaplaning, soothing serums and moisturizers are applied to calm and hydrate your skin. It’s important to use sunscreen, as your skin will be more sensitive to UV rays.

Is Dermaplaning Right for You?

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types, including sensitive skin. However, it may not be recommended for individuals with active acne, rosacea, or severe skin conditions. During your consultation at NAMTI Spa, our estheticians will help you determine if dermaplaning is the best option for your skin concerns.

Pre-Treatment Tips

To ensure the best results from your dermaplaning session, follow these tips before your appointment:

  • Avoid Exfoliants: Refrain from using any exfoliating products or treatments at least 3-5 days before your appointment.
  • Skip Retinoids: Do not use retinoid products for at least a week prior to your treatment.
  • Sun Protection: Protect your skin from sun exposure to avoid irritation or sensitivity.
  • Stay Hydrated: Keep your skin hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a good moisturizer.

Post-Treatment Care

After your dermaplaning session, it’s essential to take care of your skin to maintain the benefits:

  • Hydrate: Keep your skin well-moisturized with a hydrating serum or moisturizer.
  • Sun Protection: Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to protect your skin from UV damage.
  • Gentle Products: Stick to gentle skincare products for a few days to avoid irritation.
  • Avoid Heat: Stay away from saunas, steam rooms, and intense workouts that cause sweating for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
