Which is better dermaplaning or microneedling?

With so many new treatments and skin care trends floating the internet, no matter if you find yourself wondering, which is good for what? What is the difference and which one would be best for your skin? With dermaplaining becoming a super popular treatment patients often confuse it with microneedling. Which is better dermaplaning or microneedling? What makes them different? Is one better than the other? Or can you combine them?

Which is better dermaplaning or microneedling?

Well, it all depending on what is the concern you’re looking to treat. Neither treatment could be crowned a winner, because they are 2 different approaches to different grade of skin conditions. Shall we dive into it a but more? I hope you would say yes?


Microneedling is a rollering procedure that causes small needles to prick the skin. This punctures the skin and causes physical trauma. By causing trauma microneedling prompts the deeper layers of your skin to heal and rebuild. And also increases collagen production. 

Collagen is a very important protein that will maintain your skin’s firmness, youthfulness and smooth texture. As you age the amount of collagen in your skin reduces. And there are other factors that will also result in loss of collagen such as acne, scarring and stretch marks. So its clear after a certain age and after certain skin conditions your skin may a little help stimulating the production of new collagen. This where microneedling comes in to play.


Dermaplaning is a gentle cosmetic procedures. Using a surgical blade, the top layers of your skin is gently scrapped also removing  dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair in the process. The aim is to leave your skin looking smooth and glowing. 

While some patients opt for the treatment to clear their complexion with the overall goal of achieving a better make up application. Other patients undergo dermaplaining to prepare their skin for more invasive treatments. After removing the dead layers of the skin, laser treatments and skin peels can penetrate deeper into the skin, meaning the overall results would be so much more visible and enhanced.

To summarise – dermaplaining or microneedling

Microneedling gives a deeper rejuvenation while stimulating collagen production and reducing the appearance of scars. While dermaplaining  is a less superficial resurfacing procedure that removes the dead skin cells and peach fuzz hair from your skin leaving you with healthy, glowing complexion. 

Dermaplaining is actually the perfect prep treatment before your microneedling, as it will allow microneeding to deliver serum infusion deeper into your skin, giving you faster and much more visible results.
