Glass Skin is the epitome of skincare goals, characterised by a complexion that is smooth, luminous, and virtually flawless. One of the trending techniques to achieve this coveted look is Dermaplaning. At the Scottish Beauty Expert Training Academy we offer our in-depth and intensive Dermaplaning course at both our Glasgow and Aberdeen Academies. This guide will take you through everything you need to know about Dermaplaning and how it contributes to achieving glass skin.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape off dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (often referred to as peach fuzz) from the surface of your skin. This procedure promotes smoother skin, better product absorption, and a brighter complexion. 

Benefits of Dermaplaning

  • Exfoliation: Removes dead skin cells that can make your complexion appear dull
  • Smooth Skin: Creates a smooth canvas for makeup application
  • Enhanced Product Absorption: Allows skincare products to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.
  • Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles: Promotes cell turnover, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Instant Glow: Reveals a more radiant and youthful appearance

Preparing for Dermaplaning

  • Consultation: Consider a consultation with a licensed dermatologist  or esthetician to determine if Dermaplaning is suitable for your skin type.
  • Skin Preparation: Avoid exfoliating treatments or products containing retinoids for at least a week before the procedure.
  • Hydrate: Ensure your skin is well hydrated in the days leading up to the treatment.

The Dermaplaning Procedure

  • Cleansing: Your skin will be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oil, and dirt. 
  • Dermaplaning: Using a sterile scalpel, the professional will gently scrape the surface of your skin in small, upward strokes. 
  • Post-Procedure Care: A soothing serum or hydrating mask may be applied to calm the skin.

Aftercare Tips

  • Sun Protection: Your skin will be more sensitive to the sun, so use a broad spectrum SPF30 or higher. 
  • Gentle Skincare: Avoid using harsh exfoliants or retinoids for at least a week post-treatment
  • Hydration: Keep your skin hydrated with a good moisturiser and hydrating serums

How Often Should You Dermaplane?

For optimal results, it’s generally recommended to dermaplane once a month. However, this can vary based on your skin’s sensitivity and needs. 

DIY Dermaplaning: Should You Try It?

While professional dermaplaning is preferred, at-home kits are available. If you decide to try it yourself, follow these precautions:

  • Use a Clean Blade: Always use a new, sterile blade to prevent infection.
  • Proper Technique: Use short, gentle strokes and avoid pressing too hard.
  • Sanitise Tools: Ensure all tools are properly sanitised before and after use.
