Dermaplaning Procedure

Dermaplaning works by exfoliating the skin to soften and smooth the skin without irritation or downtime. This quick procedure is a great way to achieve fresh, glowing skin without any unwanted side effects. The treatment only takes 30 – 40 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities immediately. It is a great way to freshen up your skin before a big event or special occasion.

Before your dermaplaning treatment, your provider will clean and prep your skin. Then, a sterile surgical blade is used to lightly exfoliate the outermost layers of skin and the vellus hair, or “peach fuzz” on the skin. At the end of the treatment, the exfoliated skin is gently wiped away, revealing soft, refreshed skin.

What Can Dermaplaning Treat?

Dermaplaning is a great option for overall skin improvement and is especially effective at treating certain skin concerns, like:

  • Dry, rough skin texture
  • Brown spots and discoloration
  • Fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Shallow acne scars

By removing the outer layers of dead skin cells on the face, skin’s texture is smoothed and softened, revealing better looking skin.

Combining Dermaplaning with Other Procedures

Dermaplaning is an effective skin rejuvenation treatment on its own, but it can also be followed by chemical peels and IPL Photofacial, to allow these treatments to treat the deeper layers of the skin since dermaplaning removes the outer layer of the skin. It can also be coupled with medical facials or microdermabrasion to improve your overall skin appearance.
