Dermaplaning Pros and Cons

Featured Image

Dermaplaning is one of the trendiest hair-removal options available, performed using a scalpel to manually exfoliate dead skin cells from the face. Dermaplaning results in ultra-smooth, fresh, and brighter skin through the removal of a dead skin layer and hair from the face to even out the skin and help with cell metabolism This then allows new skin come to the surface.

Is Dermaplaning just a passing trend or a treatment worthy of your investment? Here are some pros and cons:


  • Painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum which stimulates cellular turnover with little to no downtime.
  • A great option for pregnant and sensitive skin patients looking for deep exfoliation.
  • Can be performed prior to Hydrafacials, Lasers, Microneedling, and other treatments for better product penetration.
  • Can be performed frequently.
  • Allows makeup to slide on smoother and more evenly.
  • Can significantly lighten postinflammatory scars from past acne.
  • Does not make the hair grow back thicker and darker.


  • The results might not be as long-lasting as other hair-removal methods as the hair is not removed from the root.
  • Results will differ depending on a patients individual hair-growth cycle.
  • Not everyone is a candidate. Patients with active and cystic acne should avoid this type of hair removal, as it can cause further irritation.
  • It is contraindicated for patients with hirsutism, a condition of excessive male-pattern hair growth in women.
