The gentlest care after a dermaplane treatment is a must for optimal recovery. We share what to put on your face after dermaplaning to help your skin find its radiant health post-treatment. This is a time to listen to your skin, to understand its needs, and to respond with gentle nurturing.
Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation treatment where a specialized scalpel is moved across the skin’s top layer to remove dead skin cells, as well as fine facial hair often referred to as peach fuzz. The result sought is smoother, brighter skin.
As the procedure disturbs the skin’s natural barrier, your face, now glowingly fresh, is also in a state of heightened sensitivity. This sensitivity often manifests as mild redness, a feeling of tightness, or excessive dryness.
Skin after dermaplaning facial treatments is most receptive to gentle, loving treatment. A straightforward skincare routine is key and all skin types ask for just that after this exfoliation- simplicity.
Recovery is not just about what to put on your face after dermaplaning, it's also about what not to do. Please refrain from using face brushes, scrubs, or any strong exfoliants until your skin has completely recovered. Similarly, giving your skin a break from makeup for at least 24 hours allows it to breathe and begin the recovery process.
In this delicate phase, guard your skin from the sun's harmful rays. For the first few days after treatment, it is wise not to expose your skin to direct sunlight to reduce the chance of further irritation. Apply a broad-spectrum mineral sunscreen of SPF 30 and rely on a hat and sunglasses to provide physical protection.
Additionally, during recovery, avoid perfumed products near your face, as these may cause irritation. Harsh cleansers or intensive skincare products such as retinoids and glycolic acids can also aggravate the skin, so it’s best to stay clear of these. Similarly, it's best to avoid chlorine and swimming pools for at least 24 hours post-treatment, and postpone steam room or sauna treatments for at least 24 to 48 hours.
One of the most important factors in post-dermaplaning care is keeping your skin hydrated. Drink plenty of water to help maintain hydration from the inside out, countering any potential dryness your skin may experience. When cleansing your face, choose cool water, as hot water can further strip oils from the skin, leaving it dry and irritated.
Rely on a simple yet deeply nourishing routine for two weeks post-dermaplaning. When you cleanse your skin, let Cleansing Milk be your choice. Its formulation, enriched with soothing Lavender and purifying Fo-Ti, respects the delicate balance of your newly refreshed skin. Lavender, known for its calming properties, gently soothes post-treatment sensitivity, while Fo-Ti helps in maintaining the skin’s natural equilibrium.
Follow your gentle cleanser with Roman Chamomile Tonic, a floral water with the essence of Roman Chamomile. This tonic is not just a layer of hydration; it’s a balm for the soul and the skin. Roman Chamomile is renowned for its calming properties, making it perfect for skin that’s finding its new rhythm post-treatment. It helps reduce redness and soothe signs of stress, supporting skin as it returns to to a state of serene balance.

This synergistic blend of careful chosen botanicals supports your skin, creating a protective and moisturizing layer that preserves the newfound softness and clarity of your complexion.
Treatments such as chemical peels and dermaplaning are often sought, particularly to address concerns like acne scars and to support anti-aging routines. However, rejuvenation needn't come at the cost of undue stress to the skin. We advocate for nurturing alternatives that stimulate the skin's natural repair processes without causing inflammation.
Between dermaplaning treatments, Epi-Peel is a perfect choice for gentle, yet effective resurfacing action even for sensitive skin types. Formulated with the purifying essence of Moroccan Rosemary and the refreshing touch of Far West Native Spearmint, it works softly to encourage the skin’s natural rejuvenation process.
