With all the things our skin is exposed to on a daily basis, it’s only a matter of time before the outermost layer begins to display a somewhat rough, dull appearance. One simple, yet effective treatment option that may add some pizazz back to your skin is noninvasive dermaplaning, an aesthetic technique where dull outer layers of skin and vellus hair (aka peach fuzz) are carefully scraped away to reveal a noticeably smoother complexion. Dermaplaning has become a popular option for people in Knoxville and the surrounding area for a quick, effective skin boost with no downtime.
How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning is a completely noninvasive treatment that involves a trained technician using a special precision blade to gently scrape off the outer layers of dead skin and peach fuzz to uncover the newer skin just below the surface. The overall concept is somewhat similar to shaving, but dermaplaning offers the removal of far more dead skin cells and fine hair than shaving can come close to. Plus, it takes a bit of skill…which you won’t find any shortage of from the professionals at Culture Aesthetics & Wellness.
Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is considered a low-risk procedure when performed by a trained professional, so it may offer a good option for people of varying skin types and tones who long for a smoother, more refreshed complexion. It’s not for everyone, however, especially people with inflammatory skin conditions such as:

Does dermaplaning come with any side effects?
In most cases, dermaplaning carries little risk of significant irritation to the skin when performed by a trained professional. Potential short-term side effects may include mild redness, swelling, slight tenderness, or a light tingling sensation that lasts for a day or two. In the rare cases where these side effects present, they’re usually mild in nature and resolve pretty quickly.
What results can I expect from my dermaplaning session?
Results from dermaplaning are somewhat immediate with many people enjoying a brighter, smoother complexion right after their session. Optimal results, however, take a few days to show up as the skin heals from any mild irritation.
How often can I get dermaplaning done?
While you have the option for a series of dermaplaning treatments to maintain those smooth results, it’s important that your skin has time to completely heal between each session. Typically, dermaplaning removes two to three weeks’ worth of dead skin, so it’s best to wait about four weeks between sessions. Your dermaplaning expert at Culture Aesthetics & Wellness will work with you to determine the course of action that works best for you.
