The Myths

If someone is not familiar with everything that dermaplaning has to offer they can be left with some concerns and questions on their skin’s health. We want to take the time to clear up the facts around any myths you may have heard.


The procedure of dermaplaning is not at all painful and can be very relaxing. You may feel a tingling or tickling sensation because the exfoliating blade used is only meant to sluff off dead skin cells, which doesn’t require a lot of force as it will never penetrate your skin.

Darker and Thicker Hair Growth

Another common misconception is that the hair on your face could come back thicker and darker. Project Skin says that dermaplaning is simply removing the vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, which does not affect the amount of hair that grows back.


Not Allowing your skin to get the proper amount of exfoliation will allow excessive build up of hair follicles that cause breakouts. Dermaplaning removes the top layer of skin that is constantly exposed to toxins and UV rays that can make the skin look dull or even irritated by the excessive build up.

The Benefits

The process of dermaplaning is very beneficial for your skin as it helps exfoliate and sluff off any dead or damaged skin from your face. Exfoliation also helps to produce collagen, which plumps up the skin and can help reduce the appearance of thin lines and wrinkles. By sloughing off any dead skin sitting on top of your skin, it will help make applying any makeup much smoother and easier. Leaving peach fuzz on your face can make your makeup appear chunky and more dull.
Dermaplaning also helps to produce new skin cells, resulting in a brighter and fresher look. It also helps prevent future breakouts by unclogging your pores and removing any debris.
Dermablading is beneficial for all skin types and can help with acne scarring, sun damaged skin, dry skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. You will notice a difference in your skin’s texture as well after scraping off the dead top layer of skin. Dermaplaning will help your overall complexion.

What to Expect

A dermaplaning appointment can usually take between thirty to forty minutes, so it can be a perfect time to set aside to unwind and relax. Just be careful with your amount of sun exposure as the skin afterward will be more sensitive to UV rays; just make sure you have your sunscreen ready for application after.
