What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is one of the least invasive and most tolerated skin rejuvenation techniques available. It’s a popular facial treatment because it exfoliates the uppermost layers of the skin without chemicals, external products, or injectables. The cosmetic provider uses a small surgical blade to scrape away dead and dry skin cells from the epidermis. The treatment removes layers of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair (peach fuzz), revealing a glowing complexion.

Who are good candidates for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for everyone. If you want softer, smoother, healthier, and more glowing skin without chemicals or lasers, you should consider dermaplaning. This is one of the few skin treatments suitable for pregnant women because it doesn’t involve chemicals. However, you might not be a suitable candidate if you have active acne breakouts, pustular rosacea, or extremely sensitive skin. Please talk to our cosmetic providers to explore your treatment options and determine if you’re a candidate for dermaplaning.

What happens during your dermaplaning session?

Dermaplaning is performed as a simple, 30-minute, in-office treatment. The cosmetic provider will cleanse your skin to remove all the dirt, debris, and oils from your pores. An extremely small surgical blade will be used to scrape away the uppermost layers of the skin. The blade is held at an angle that ensures the strokes are gentle and light, so there’s no risk of skin damage or pain. Most patients say the treatment feels like a gentle shave.

What are the side effects of dermaplaning?

You might experience mild redness or dryness after the treatment. Some patients also experience flaking skin — please allow your skin to peel naturally to avoid skin damage. However, most patients don’t experience any harsh side effects and can resume their daily activities immediately. Dermaplaning doesn’t involve any downtime.

What are the dermaplaning results like?

You may experience mild redness, but you can resume your daily activities immediately. You should avoid makeup for the rest of the day, but you can resume makeup application from the next day. You should also apply moisturizers to prevent your skin from drying. The results are instantly evident — your skin will look brighter and more radiant. You can repeat the treatment once every 2 to 4 weeks to maintain the results.
