Facial Dermaplaning

What is Dermaplaning?

W Skin Studio, located just outside of Philadelphia, offers an exciting new way to exfoliate and revitalize your skin.

Dermaplaning, or blading, is an exfoliation treatment that provides an alternative to chemical facial peels and microdermabrasion. It’s a good choice for anyone who has:

  • Extremely sensitive skin
  • Redness or rosacea
  • Visible facial veins
  • Dry, patchy skin
  • “Peach fuzz”
  • Uneven skin pigmentation
  • Fine lines or wrinkles
  • Scars from acne, injury, or surgery

You’ll immediately notice your skin has a smoother texture and a fresher look. Hair returns softly and will not become coarse following treatment. Your skin will easily absorb any additional topical skin treatments. Contact us to begin dermaplaning.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermaplaning

  • Why doesn't the hair grow back thicker?

    Fine facial “peach fuzz” is one of the two types of hair that everyone has. It’s called vellus hair and is the fine translucent hair that you can see if you look closely on women’s face, chest and back. The other type is terminal hair, which is the coarser hair on the head, under the arms, on the brow and on the lower face of men. Because vellus hair is so fine and different from terminal hair, cutting it does not make it grow in thicker or feel stubbly.

  • How often is this procedure performed?

    The normal skin growth cycle is around 30 days and since dermaplaning removes about 2-3 weeks of dead skin cell build-up, it’s best to wait about 3-4 weeks between treatments.

  • Can blading or dermaplaning be performed in the same visit as a chemical peel?

    A chemical peel done immediately after dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure that the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly. Facial peels will hydrate and further exfoliate dry and normal skin while a glycolic acid peel is strong enough to combine with dermaplaning for oily skin.
