If you’re a skincare enthusiast, you’ve no doubt heard tales of the “scalpel facial" that has taken the aesthetics world by storm. Half of those who’ve heard the nickname run in terror, while the other half enthusiastically extol its benefits to anyone who’ll listen. If nothing else, dermablading (the procedure’s technical name), has stirred up tremendous curiosity. If you’re still in the not-sure-if-I-trust-a-scalpel-near-my-face camp, the skincare experts at Arijai Aesthetics are here to calm your worries. Here’s a breakdown of what the procedure entails, and what you can expect from this ultra-trendy, yet highly effective treatment.   


What is Dermablading?

Dermablading, commonly referred to as dermaplaning, is a non-invasive facial treatment designed to deliver smooth, soft, flawless-looking skin in just one session. Using extremely gentle pressure, a cosmetic dermatologist expertly glides a medical-grade scalpel along the surface of your face while gently pulling your skin taut. While the mere thought of a scalpel near your delicate facial skin certainly sounds intimidating, the procedure is painless and actually quite relaxing.


How Does Dermablading Improve Skin?

The treatment has garnered enormous praise from beauty enthusiasts everywhere for its ability to not only slough off dead, dull skin cells but improve overall texture and appearance. Because it is essentially an extremely precise manual exfoliation treatment, the effects of dermablading are often compared to those of microdermabrasion. However, unlike microdermabrasion—which can result in temporary skin inflammation—dermablading is far gentler. After just one session, you can expect:


●        Complete peach fuzz removal

●        Skin tone improvement

●        Softer, smoother skin

●        Clearer complexion

●        Fine line reduction

●        Removal of dry skin patches


While dermablading produces impressive, immediately visible results, it also works to enhance product absorption and improve makeup application. Because the treatment exfoliates away the uppermost layer of dead, dull skin cells, you’ll notice that your skincare products work more effectively, and your foundation lays flush and smooth against your skin.


Does Dermablading Have Side Effects?

As long as your treatment is performed by a trained medical aesthetician or doctor, dermablading is safe for all skin types. When it comes to cosmetic procedures, it is absolutely critical that you find a well-trained and licensed professional to perform your treatment. Often, adverse side effects from any skincare procedure are due to inexperience on the practitioner's part. At Arijai Aesthetics, we ensure your safety and well-being through a combination of expert training, medical licensing, and precision application.


However, as with any skincare treatment, there are certain individuals who should steer clear. If you suffer from keratosis pilaris, rosacea, facial eczema, or inflamed acne, the blade can cause further irritation of your already sensitive skin.
