What is dermaplaning? 

Dermaplaning in Philadelphia at Bloom Aesthetic Center is a simple, safe, non-surgical procedure to exfoliate the top layer of the skin. Our licensed aestheticians use a small precision blade to easily remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz, which provides a clean “base” for applying skincare products, makeup, or serums. The procedure is intended to smoothly and painlessly facilitate exfoliation, which helps to refresh, refine, and revive the look and feel of your skin.

What happens during a dermaplaning treatment?

When you arrive for your treatment, your skin will be cleansed and prepped to ensure that there are no barriers between your skin and the small precision blade. The blade does not hurt; it simply feels like shaving or scrubbing. You’ll see results after just one session of dermaplaning in Bryn Mawr, but for the best results, you should have treatments every 2-4 weeks until your skin looks exactly how you want it to.


Does dermaplaning cause facial hair to grow back thicker?

No. In fact, it’s actually impossible for hair to grow back thicker because of shaving. Dermaplaning removes extremely fine vellus hair that’s so thin and soft that the blade has little to no effect on how it looks upon regrowth. The “thicker hair” rumor probably began because shaving can create a blunt tip on hair, which can be confused as thickness.

Does dermaplaning ever cause breakouts?

No. Not only does dermaplaning not cause breakouts; it actually helps to prevent them. This is because it exfoliates the skin, unclogging pores and stopping acne from developing.

Am I a candidate for dermaplaning?

If you’re interested in dermaplaning treatments in the Bryn Mawr and Philadelphia area, you may be a great candidate. If you’re looking for a natural way to get softer, smoother, healthier skin, it’s likely a good treatment for you. Dermaplaning is great for any skin tone — however, if you have an active acne outbreak, very sensitive skin, or rosacea, dermaplaning is not recommended. It’s also not recommended for men with a lot of facial hair. 

What can I expect after dermaplaning?

Your skin may appear dry, red, or flaky after a dermaplaning treatment, but this shouldn’t happen as long as you follow our home care instructions. You should avoid wearing makeup for the rest of the day after your session, and it’s a good idea to moisturize or apply a hyaluronic mask to enhance your results. Be gentle with cleansing; only use your hands to wash your skin for two days. When going outside for the following week after treatment, be sure to apply a gentle sunscreen of at least SPF 30.
