Professional Dermaplaning Isn’t Worth It: A Licensed Aesthetician Tells Us Why

We know what you’re thinking, is your money going to be best spent on a dermaplaning treatment? More importantly, is a professional dermaplaning treatment worth it?

At Blue Water Spa, we truly believe in creating the most beautiful foundation for glowing skin. That means we don’t want to overlook the most important part of your skincare routine, improving the skin’s quality itself! And, there are budget friendly ways dermaplaning can enhance a quality skin care routine.

The truth is, if you are not happy with your skin’s texture, elasticity, and pigmentation, dermaplaning will only be a very temporary solution to perfecting the surface of your skin. While dermaplaning is great to remove peach fuzz, it does not have to break your budget. Dermaplaning will reveal smoother skin to help your face glow and apply makeup flawlessly.

How Can You Achieve Radiant Skin By Dermaplaning at Home?

Listen up! Save the money on dermaplaning, and splurge on medical grade skin care products that will hydrate, treat, and nourish your skin all day and all night long. Why? Medical grade skin care products allow you to recreate a consistent spa experience at home and maintain a routine to help your skin thrive. Products that help stimulate collagen production for quicker cell turnover will help you achieve that no-makeup glow we all strive for.

Kristen, a Licensed Aesthetician at Blue Water Spa, who’s been passionately performing medical grade skincare treatments for about a decade, explained at-home dermaplaning in more detail.

“Dermaplaning can be done safely with drugstore quality and budget tinkle razors. Not only is the quality all you need to dermaplane at home, you can replace them after each use to avoid bacteria and skin irritation.” Which is great news for customers!

She continues, “You don’t need a $100+ dermaplaning treatment to get rid of facial peach fuzz and see smooth results. If you’re looking for smoother, better quality to your skin, I would recommend a skincare consultation for medical grade skincare treatments– that is going to be the better investment for their skin specifically.”

Achieve Spa Results with Dermaplaning At Home | How to Dermaplane Blue Water Spa

Follow Kristen’s at-home dermaplaning routine:

  • Start with a freshly cleaned face.
  • Use a brand new razor each time to prevent any bacteria build up.
  • Hold your skin tight and shave in downward feathering strokes.
  • After completing on desired areas, you can feel and repeat anywhere that seems you may have missed.
  • Lastly, apply a medical grade serum that accelerates collage production like the BWS Lipopeptide Hydrogel.

Shop Kristen’s At Home Skincare Routine:

  • Amazon Tinkle Razor
    This pack of tinkle razors is inexpensive so you can use a new razor each time and are still great quality for a safe self care experience!
  • Lipopeptide Hydrogel
    The Blue Water Spa Lipopeptide Hydrogel is a unique hyaluronic acid-based gel with peptides. This serum is designed to enhance skin moisture, help keep wrinkles away, while plumping and firming the skin. It is a great complement to the skin after dermaplaning as it hydrates after exfoliation and encourages the skin’s natural collagen production for elasticity.

Go the extra mile: For a full blown spa experience you can apply the Blue Water Spa Eye Refining System with Retinol and don’t forget smooth lips! Hydrate this sensitive area with Blue Water Spa’s Dual Luxe Lip System.

If you have acne prone skin, dermaplaning is not the best treatment as you are likely to cause further irritation or spread harmful bacteria to other areas of your face. You can still get the benefits of dermaplaning by carefully going around isolated breakouts. However, NEVER dermaplane over an active breakout.

For acne prone skin, you may benefit from a chemical peel at Blue Water Spa. To take advantage of medical grade skin care at home, you can schedule a consultation at Blue Water Spa to receive a customized skin care routine just for your unique skin to help treat and prevent breakouts, and yes, we do virtual consults too!

If you are tired of consistent peach fuzz growth, there are other solutions you may be a candidate for and worth the investment. Laser hair removal is not only safe for facial hair, it reveals beautiful results. People with a darker hair root can benefit from laser hair removal and find relief from fast growing dark facial hair. Because laser hair removal works with hair pigment, light or blonde peach fuzz will not work and dermaplaning will be the best choice.

To unveil and maintain radiantly smooth skin, consider seeking professional expertise for treatments that will produce long lasting results. Blue Water Spa provides customized facial treatments such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, Hydrafacials, and microneedling. By working with a Raleigh Licensed Aesthetician, you will receive a customized treatment plan based on your individual skin needs and results desired. All under the safety and supervision of our highly trained licensed estheticians and the reassurance of the most sanitary environment for your skincare.
