Dermaplaning Facial Near Me

As a matter of few decades, Dermaplaning has been around and it seems to be taking the internet and our social number of feeds by storm in recent years. According to some, this practice is responsible for the glowing skin of celebrities, while others claim that it could leave you with thick, dark hair on your face. So, how to find the truth? And what is a dermaplaning facial exactly? As with anything, you can’t always trust what you read on the internet and it can be hard to find reputable information. That’s why we asked our skin care Clinic Esthetician at Mediterranean Beauty Salon in Worthington Ohio, for the details about the mysterious dermaplaning facial everyone seems to be talking about these days. If your Near Hear, this is one of the best quality natural services you can achieve.


What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning involves gently removing small, fine hairs from the face using a sharp tool [1]. Most commonly, a sharp tool is a 10-inch surgical scalpel with a sharp point designed to be used on clean, dry skin of the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck. Your esthetician or dermatologist will use the scalpel to very gently scrape the surface of your face in light, feathering strokes to remove any hair. Although it may seem dangerous and scary, the whole procedure is practically painless, although some side effects such as mild redness or irritation may occur. However, most people do not experience any discomfort during or after treatment and can leave the procedure without side effects. But what are the benefits of dumpling? Glad you asked!


Benefits of Dermaplaning

In addition to removing hair, dermaplaning has a number of additional benefits for those who use it. First, gently scratching the surface of your skin acts as a physical exfoliator and, in addition to hair, removes dead skin. As we all know, dead skin as well as dirt and oil can clog pores, resulting in infuriating breakouts. This leads us to the second benefit... hairless skin is often the cleanest. Your skin will be cleaner after a dermaplaning facial which, again, helps prevent future breakouts and allows other products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, because there is no hair to trap dirt, oil, and other debris clinging to your face. However, if you have an active breakout or suffer from severe acne, Michelle warns that a dermaplaning facial may not be the best option for you as “the process of dermaplaning can actually end up overstimulating the skin and worsen existing breakouts.”


Dermaplaning can also have some Anti-aging Effects as the Removal of Dead Skin reduces the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars [2]. In addition, you will experience improvements in your skin’s texture and specific skin tone and walk away with a dewy glow and skin that is silky smooth to the touch. As a result, your makeup will glide on evenly and flawlessly.

Estheticians also recommend booking a dermaplaning facial prior to undergoing any laser treatments. “After the hair is removed, the laser treatment will not reflect off the hair and will be able to penetrate the skin better, making the treatment more effective.” In addition to removing about three weeks' worth of dead skin from your face, dermaplaning can offer results that last up to four weeks. However, your skin is constantly growing so you will need to be consistent in booking regular follow-ups if you want the results to last.


Fortunately, nearly anyone can benefit from and utilize dermaplaning treatments apart from those with actively inflamed acne as mentioned above. Outside of that, anyone seeking hair removal or exfoliation can add dermaplaning to their skincare routine. It can be a particularly great option for those who are unable to use certain products or other exfoliating treatments, including pregnant women or individuals suffering from sensitive skin.


Dermaplaning vs. Dermabrasion

In reality, these two procedures are distinctly different, and they each deliver unique results, so people tend to mix them up or think they are interchangeable. So, don’t ask for dermabrasion when what you really want is dermaplaning. As we already know, dermaplaning is quick, easy, and requires no downtime as it does nothing more than remove the hair and dead skin from the surface of your face. Dermabrasion, on the other hand, utilizes micro-crystals and suctioning to create mechanical exfoliation that can be quite intense on the skin [3]. In fact, dermabrasion can lead to infections and scarring, which is why it seems to be on the decline in skin care spas and clinics.


Dermaplaning Myths

Unfortunately, this perspective often causes us to become overwhelmed when it's time to start a project. So, we have selected five of the most common myths to address and help calm your mind.


  • Peach fuzz will grow back darker and thicker - This is probably the most common myth we hear regarding dermaplaning and shaving in general. So many of us have been told that removing the hair from our legs and underarms results in the hair growing back darker and thicker than before leaving us all with deep-seated fears of unsightly hair. Let us put this rumor to bed once and for all. It is not possible for hairs to grow back thicker simply because you shaved [4]. The process in and of itself creates a blunt tip on the hair where you cut it at the thicker base next to the surface of the skin. Now we’ll admit that this blunt edge of the hair can appear thicker compared to the tapered tip that was present before, but it is not physically larger. Just as with shaving, the process of dermaplaning removes very, very fine hair called vellus hair which is so thin and soft that removing it will have no noticeable impact on the perceived thickness of the hair on your face. Rather removing the vellus hair will instantly leave your skin feeling and looking smoother and brighter.
  • It is Painful - We talked about this earlier, but dermaplaning is actually almost painless for most people. And indeed, the real process is like painless shaving, but, similarly, there may be some stimulation after that that can be painful. But compared to other methods of hair removal such as waxing, threading, and sugaring, dermaplaning feels more like a gentle tickle or brushing sensation as opposed to inducing any sort of pain.
  • The procedure will cause breakouts - although, as we mentioned, dermaplaning should not be performed on any skin that has active acne. However, when used as a preventative measure, it is very effective in reducing the likelihood of future breakouts. By removing the dead skin on the surface of your face, dermaplaning prevents it from getting trapped inside your pores causing infection and leading to acne. Plus, by sloughing away dirt and debris, dermaplaning also makes it easier for acne treatments and serums to penetrate deeper into your skin which also helps prevent future acne.
  • It Can’t Be Done on Darker Skin - Unlike some other exfoliation methods such as scrubs that are not recommended for darker skin, dermaplaning is absolutely safe for all skin types and shades. In spite of the fact that this process is categorized as a manual exfoliation, it does not cause micro-abrasions on the skin like a scrub. Dermaplaning can actually be an incredibly effective exfoliation method for darker skin as it instantly removes the dark hairs that can make the skin look duller than it really is.

It takes a lot of time, though this is a subjective rumor, it doesn't seem excessive to spend 30 minutes on a procedure that will last for up to 4 weeks. And given that you will only need to schedule an appointment once per month for lasting results, that doesn’t seem like an excessive amount of time to be spending on a single procedure.

So, You Want to Try Dermaplaning… Now What?

Now that we have busted some of the most common myths about dermaplaning and you actually understand what it is and the wonderful things it can do for your skin, it is no wonder you are ready to book an appointment as soon as possible. But before you do, there are a few more important things you should understand. First, dermaplaning should only be done by a board-certified dermatologist or licensed esthetician who specializes in the procedure. In both cases, there are a number of schools the individual can attend for training but they must pass a state exam in order to receive the proper credentials that allow them to carry out the practice of dermaplaning. Make sure you look for this licensure when choosing a spaor clinic. This is real for sure and you can ask for it, because it is provided at Mediterranean Day Spa Columbus with high experts around Worthington Ohio.


As far as cost, dermaplaning on its own can cost upwards of $100 per treatment. However, most spas and clinics tend to pair it with a facial or similar service which ensures that your skin is cleaned prior to the dermaplaning but ultimately raises your total might be over $200 in some cases. In those cases, ask your esthetician if it is possible to have only the dermaplaning procedure rather than the whole package.


Finally, you will want to make sure you or your esthetician applies sunscreen to your face after the procedure. Due to the exfoliation that occurs, your skin will be more sensitive to the sun as a result, and you need to take extra precautions to protect it for a few days following the treatment, even though it should already be part of your daily routine.


Trying a new skin treatment can be a little nerve-wracking sometimes, but in the case of dermaplaning, it is well worth the adventure. Estheticians note that they especially “loves dermaplaning for dry skin and for removing peach fuzz.” Based on their years working in various skin clinics they highly recommend that their customers try dermaplaning at least once so they can experience the immediate effects for themselves. “Once you see it work right before your eyes, it is impossible to deny how wonderful dermaplaning is.”
