The Importance of Dermaplaning Consent
Even minimally invasive procedures like dermaplaning aren’t without client risks. Learn more about why client consent is so important for dermaplaning, and what steps you can take to ensure the best possible protections for your practice.
Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive procedure that removes facial hair and dead skin for a smoother overall appearance that especially reduces the prevalence of scars and wrinkles. Though dermaplaning is safe for most people when conducted by a certified specialist, a small risk of scarring, infection, or patchy skin pigment means that client consent for dermaplaning must be given in advance.
Client consent forms are the best way to do this, providing a verifiable document that proves –
- Full information on the procedure has been provided
- All risks have been explained
- Personal information such as allergies, etc. has been taken into account
By signing a dermaplaning consent form, the clients confirm their understanding of the treatment, risks, and side effects, as well as confirming they have provided you with the correct information for a safe procedure.
Whether you’re using online or paper-based forms, they must be clearly signed, dated, and stored as legal backing in case of complications or potential legal action down the line.
