Dermaplaning FAQs + Dramatic Before and Afters

In honor of our upcoming Dermaplaning Event, we’ve put together a special dermaplaning compilation post. We’ve gathered up your FAQs plus their answers and a few of our favorite dramatic before and after client pics. Oh, and did we mention we have a brand new Dermaplaning Video, too?

Got a dermaplaning question not answered here? Let us know in the comments below plus any other skincare topics you’d like us to cover.

What Is It?

This 45-minute exfoliating treatment ($75) rids your face of all peach fuzz and dead skin, leaving you with an instant improvement in your overall skin texture and appearance.

For the dermaplaning part, a skilled aesthetician uses a surgical scalpel to remove the dead skin cells from your face. As the top layers of dead skin are being removed, so is peach fuzz, too.

What Are the Benefits?

Products soak in better, makeup glides on smoother, fine lines are diminished. And you’re left with an immediate healthy glow. It’s no wonder this is a La Belle favorite!

Is It Customizable?

Your Dermaplaning Facial is customizable depending on your needs. For example, we have clients who get Detox Gel + Dermaplaning + Sensi Peel, or Detox Gel + Dermaplaning + Enzyme Peel.

You’ll discuss with your aesthetician your targeted concerns so you can choose the right peel (or masque) for you.

Does Hair Grow Back Thicker?

Dermaplaning does not cause your hair to grow back thicker. You’re removing layers of dead skin and peach fuzz. Your hair will grow back, but it will look just like it did before.

Does It Remove Dark Spots?

Unfortunately no. Dark spots come from your bottom layers in the dermis. If you have dark spot concerns, lightening peels can help! 

Is It Safe For All Skin Types?

While it is safe, let your aesthetician know if you have any skin allergies or sensitivity prior to the procedure. And if you have acne, it's recommended you wait until breakouts are clear before treatment. 

How Often Should You Get It Done?

Typically once a month, or prior to a facial service for maximum results.

Pregnancy Safe Skincare (That Everyone Can Use!)

Congrats to all the new mommas to be! Pregnancy brings with it a multitude of changes to the body, including your skin.

When I first became pregnant, my skin went nuts. I’m lucky that I am an aesthetician and really know my own skin. It didn’t take me long to figure out that the rate my skin was shedding was on overdrive. And my body wasn’t keeping up with exfoliating it as quickly as it was building up… causing breakouts that I haven’t seen in years!

Before I became pregnant, I used mostly Fresh Faced Skincare, which is my normal go-to-acne product at the studio. Normally, I would exfoliate once every other day with clarity serum, and once a month with a dermaplaning facial and enzyme peel. This would keep my breakouts at bay, but not anymore… nightmare!

Since I couldn’t use my normal enzymes anymore, I had to think of new creative ways to exfoliate that were pregnancy safe.

Here is the new skincare routine that I adopted.

Pregnancy Skincare Routine

I was so happy to know that Fresh Faced Skincare is also pregnancy safe. I was so excited that I was able to continue to use the product line throughout my pregnancy. All I needed to do was adjust my skincare routine (exfoliation especially) and incorporate a few other products.

Morning Routine

  • Purifying Cleansing Bar, Fresh Faced Skincare ($10).

  • Clarity Serum, Fresh Faced Skincare ($47).

  • Daily Greens Moisturizer for normal/combination/oily skin, Sorella Apothecary ($64).

  • Yogurt Kale Eye Concentrate Cream, Sorella Apothecary ($64).

NighT Routine

  • Purifying Cleansing Bar.

  • Clarity Serum.

  • Blueberry Milk Moisturizer, Sorella Apothecary ($82).

  • Yogurt Kale Eye Concentrate Cream.

BONUS EXFOLIATION

Use a Pore Refining Scrub, 3x/week in the shower like Fresh Faced Skincare ($56). Stick this step in between your Cleanser and Clarity Serum.

Now you don’t necessarily have to use two different moisturizers, but I did enjoy using the Blueberry Milk Moisturizer at night for a little added moisture. If you are more on the dry-side, Sorella makes a product called “The Balm” that is even more moisturizing for normal/dry skin.

What Made the Difference

Notice how I started using Clarity Serum 2 times per day, instead of every other, and I started keeping my Fresh Faced Pore Refining Scrub in the shower.  I love using it in the shower that way I can rinse it right off, and it doesn’t interfere with my lashes.

My skin took a total 180, and everyone comments on my “glow.” There’s no more buildup of dead skin and break outs. YAY! I still get dermaplaned maybe once every 4-6 weeks.

I also bought special pregnancy safe enzymes for the studio recently that I love to use after dermaplaning. If you’re pregnant, (or even if you’re not!) our aestheticians will cater your facial especially for your skin, so book an appointment today; it will be a lifesaver!

Bonus: Great Pregnancy Product Finds

The Earth Mama Line (found on Amazon), so far has been a favorite of mine.  I love the Belly Butter lotion, and their organic nipple cream (lanolin free, and doesn’t grease up your clothes).  I like the consistency of it more than lanolin, but I will have to report back once I am actually breastfeeding! What I love about the line is it’s super inexpensive, but very effective.

I’m also very blessed to have a licensed and certified aromatherapist as a Mother, who is able to customize any of your favorite essential oils in an organic, 100% natural body butter formula (and many other products, too). 

I’ve been slathering it all over my belly at night and no stretch marks! Feel free to reach out to me, if you’d like to try the product. We will be carrying her line, Vetiver & Rose, in the near future! Just let me know the type of product you are looking for. : )

If you have any pregnancy/skin related questions, don’t hesitate to come see one of our licensed aestheticians to help straighten any of your concerns out. Let us help you get your pregnancy glow!
