Dermaplaning in Lahore

Fast facts

  • Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation (removing dead skin cells) that uses a scalpel (a surgical knife) to remove dead skin cells and fine hair from the face
  • The procedure can improve the appearance of fine lines (wrinkles), acne scars (marks left by acne), and uneven skin tone (discoloration)

Dermaplaning can also make skincare products more effective by allowing them to penetrate deeper into the skin


  • Dermaplaning is a non-invasive (not involving cutting into the skin), painless procedure that can be performed in a salon or spa setting
  • The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes and is often combined with other treatments such as a chemical peel (a treatment that uses an acid solution to remove the top layer of the skin) or facial (treatment for the face)


  • The cost of dermaplaning can vary depending on the location and the practitioner (a professional who performs the procedure) performing the procedure
  • On average, a single dermaplaning session can cost between Rs.3,000 and Rs.6,000

How it works

  • A scalpel is used to gently scrape away dead skin cells and fine hair from the face
  • The scalpel is held at a 45-degree angle (the angle at which the scalpel is held) and is moved in a downward motion
  • The procedure removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and the fine hair, or peach fuzz (very fine hair on the face), on the face


  • The skin is first cleaned and then a numbing cream (a cream that reduces sensation) may be applied to minimize discomfort
  • The practitioner will then use the scalpel to remove the dead skin cells and fine hair
  • A soothing lotion or cream is applied to the face after the procedure to reduce redness (a condition where the skin becomes reddish) and irritation

Risks and side effects

  • Dermaplaning is generally considered safe when performed by a licensed and trained practitioner
  • Some of the common side effects include redness, irritation, and slight bleeding (the loss of blood)
  • In rare cases, the procedure may cause skin infection (when bacteria, viruses, or other germs enter the body through a break in the skin) or hyperpigmentation (an excessive production of melanin, which causes dark patches on the skin)

What to expect

  • The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes
  • The skin may feel slightly sensitive and red after the procedure
  • The results of the procedure are immediately visible, with the skin appearing smoother and brighter

  • The practitioner will give you instructions on how to prepare for the procedure, which may include avoiding certain skincare products and medications
  • It is important to let the practitioner know about any allergies (an abnormal reaction of the body to a certain substance) or skin conditions (a problem that affects the skin) you may have

Home Safety

  • You should avoid sun exposure, sweating, and makeup for at least 24 hours after the procedure
  • You should also avoid using any products that contain salicylic acid (a type of beta hydroxy acid that is used to treat acne) or alpha-hydroxy acids (a type of acid that is used to exfoliate the skin) for at least 48 hours after the procedure
  • It is also important to protect your skin from the sun by wearing sunscreen and avoiding prolonged sun exposure

Dermaplaning vs. Microdermabrasion

  • Dermaplaning and microdermabrasion are both forms of exfoliation, but they work differently
  • Dermaplaning uses a scalpel to remove dead skin cells and fine hair, while microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tip wand or a fine spray of crystals to remove dead skin cells
  • Dermaplaning is best for removing fine hair and improving the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, while microdermabrasion is best for improving the appearance of sun damage and uneven skin tone

Licensed Providers

  • It is important to seek treatment from a licensed and trained practitioner, such as a dermatologist (a doctor who specializes in skin conditions) or a esthetician (a skincare professional)
  • You should also make sure that the practitioner is using a sterilized (made free from bacteria or other germs) and disposable (used once and then thrown away) blade for the procedure
  • It is also important to ask the practitioner about their qualifications, experience and the number of procedures they have performed.
