What is dermablading?
At Vively Body Science, dermablading (dermaplaning) is a treatment which exfoliates your facial skin and helps remove dirt, oil, and vellus hair. It’s done by hand, by a trained Vively team member, using a medical-grade scalpel.
We gently sweep away the top layer of dead skin cells, peach fuzz, and excess oils, removing up to 2 weeks of dead skin.
As a nice bonus, dermablading can smooth uneven skin, giving you a smoother base for your foundation and makeup, and extra glow for your summer fun. The effects of dermablading usually last about 3 to 4 weeks.

What to expect from the best provider of dermablading near you
When searching for a medical aesthetician in general, and one that provides dermablading in specific, they must have one quality above all else: the ability to listen. They should talk with you, hear what you’re saying, and completely understand your goals and desires before suggesting any course of action.
You are the most important person in the room. If they start selling you products and procedures before really getting down to what you want, thank them for their time and walk away.
A true professional is going to ask you questions, discover your goals, understand your comfort zones, and then- and only then- discuss recommendations. During this second step they’ll still listen, pay attention, and provide suggestions. There is absolutely no “one size fits all.” There’s only the size that fits you, perfectly.
Ask for referrals
Ask your possible aesthetician for clients who will talk about their experience at the clinic. Trust is crucial, as are expectations.
For dermablading near you, a good provider always ensures the patient is comfortable. If the process hurts, the clinic isn’t right for you. At Vively, we believe dermablading should be painless, and the whole experience should be relaxing, and rejuvenating.
The Vively process for dermablading in Plymouth
At Vively Body Science, we want you to be open and honest about any pre-existing conditions, and about any worries you might have concerning the procedure itself and after-treatment care.
- Step 1: Consultation/Determine Your Treatment. Based on the initial consultation, you should get a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired results.
- Step 2: Procedure. Dermablading in Plymouth is a painless procedure that can be incorporated into other procedures or can be done as a quick stand-alone treatment.
- Step 3: After-Care. You’ll want to avoid direct sunlight for prolonged periods for several weeks.
Shaving and dermablading aren’t the same
Dermablading your face at home might seem fiscally advantageous, but that DIY tactic only tackles the vellus hair. Plus you run the risk of inflicting scarring damage to your skin if you slip.
The big difference is that dermablading exfoliates first, with hair removal second. It should be performed by a licensed professional. Plus you’ll benefit from the extra advantages that come with professional dermablading near you. We’ll talk about those advantages shortly.
We never recommend at-home dermablading because of the risk of scarring, infection, and safety risk. At minimum, you’ll need a fresh, new dermaplane razor that’s specifically designed for your face (those budget-priced leg-shaving razors won’t do). Then, a rock-steady hand, and medical-grade skincare products from Vively for after-care.
However, if you want to get all the best benefits that professional dermablading near you can deliver, here’s how it works.
The dermablading procedure itself
A treatment follows these simple steps:
- A soothing, relaxing facial cleanse, to remove any oils, dirt, or bacteria.
- Application of a toner to prep the dermablading target areas for removal of the top layer of skin.
- Your provider will gently swipe a medical-grade scalpel across the skin to remove that top layer and vellus hair.
Dermablading should be done with great care, and no pain, for a smoothness you don’t get from shaving at home.
Benefits beyond the hair
Dermablading near you provides a surprising number of benefits beyond hair removal. Some of its benefits include:
Dermablading removes that top layer of the hyperpigmentation, revealing new, healthy skin cells from beneath. And increasing skin cell turnover improves hyperpigmentation from sun damage, melasma, plus other forms of this condition.
Brightens the skin immediately
You’ll already look fresher and more rejuvenated after a single treatment.
Helps skin care products penetrate better
Your products don’t get caught in the hairs, or get blocked by dry, flaky, dead skin, making the active ingredients in your skincare more potent.
Gives your skin a more even tone
With routine dermablading treatments, your skin can exhibit less textures and have a more even tone, reducing the need for makeup to even out your complexion.
Stimulates collagen production
Collagen is your skin’s foundation. Less collagen means more wrinkles. When dermablading in Minneapolis stimulates your body to produce more collagen, the treated area becomes plumper and fuller. This reduces acne scarring and helps minimize fine lines.
Lowers bacterial infections
Removing vellus hair/peach fuzz and dead skin cells helps stop dirt and oils from becoming trapped in the skin, one of the big causes of bacterial infections, acne, and those dreaded “blackheads.”
Other benefits of dermablading near you
- Primes skin for chemical peel or laser treatment
- Heals ingrown hairs
- Increases blood circulation for that healthy glow
- Makes the skin look and feel smoother
- Unclogs pores
- No down time
With all you do to look your best, it’s so frustrating when your makeup won’t cooperate. Blame it on the peach fuzz, and the dry skin. Plus your make-up can cling to that vellus hair, making your skin appear uneven, patchy, and clumpy.
Dry skin also grabs at your applications, making you have to use more to get that beautiful, just-what-you-wanted evenness in color contour and consistency.
After dermablading near you, your makeup will sit directly on more level, plumper skin, with no “fuzz” in the way. No more powder clumps, no more base lumps, your efforts will lay flatter for smoother summer style and the dazzling look you crave.
You should only do dermablading approximately every 4 to 6 weeks for best results. And our body needs time to regenerate skin cells, the process that leaves your face looking more radiant.
If you do it too frequently, your skin may get irritated, leaving your skin redder, dryer, and more prone to environmental damage.
There’s not a “recovery period” after dermablading in Plymouth. But, as with any treatment, you should support your goals by helping your body heal itself.
- Avoid direct sun on your face for up to 3 days (time to break out that summer hat!)
- Avoid extreme heat for the same amount of time
- For about a week, don’t use exfoliators/scrubs on your face
- Also avoid chlorine for a week (even if the pool looks amazing)
- Apply Vively-recommended moisturizers, creams, and/or serums
- When you head out for the summer day, use sunscreen
Isn’t dermablading/dermaplaning just shaving?
No. Dermablading uses a surgical blade, not a shaver, and exfoliates first. It’s the exfoliation process that also removes the vellus hair.
Why do dermablading near me in Plymouth?
Dermablading has the added benefits of vellus hair removal, plumper skin, reduced scarring and fine wrinkles; it’s so much more than “a shave.”
Will my hair come back darker and thicker?
Dermablading is only done on the face, where vellus hair acts differently than on the rest of your body. It won’t come back darker and thicker.
Can I do dermablading in Plymouth if I have acne?
We do not recommend dermablading if your acne is having an active outbreak, due to the bacteria often present in acne. However, it does work well with post-outbreak skin, including remediating acne scarring.
Is there a skin tone that won’t work for dermablading?
Dermablading/dermaplaning works with all skin tones.
How long does dermablading take?
This treatment usually lasts about 30 or so minutes per session.
What about recovery time?
There’s zero recovery time needed. After your dermablading procedure you can return to your normal routine. We do encourage all patients to wear sunscreen after any exfoliating service, and there are other precautions listed above.
What does dermablading feel like?
Many clients liken it to a gentle “cat’s tongue” sensation. We can’t stress enough that there should not be pain. If you have extra-sensitive skin, tell your Vively team member. They’ll be sure to adapt your treatment for maximum comfort.
