What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a treatment that removes the topmost layers of the skin along with vellus hairs, or the soft, lightly-colored hairs on the face. The main goal is to achieve a smooth, even surface to the skin, and can even improve the appearance of acne scars, fine wrinkles, and dull, dry skin. It is also known to help skincare products penetrate more easily for better results.

Who can Benefit from Dermaplaning?

Almost anyone with any skin type can benefit from dermaplaning. Prior to your treatment, you will be able to speak with one of our skin care professionals to discuss your medical history, skin type, and skin care goals. Those with active acne may need to wait until their acne is cleared up to schedule an appointment to avoid irritating the skin or spreading bacteria.

What to Expect?

About one week prior to your dermaplaning treatment, we recommend avoiding sun exposure, as treatment on sunburned skin will make the treatment painful.

During your dermaplaning treatment, a special exfoliating blade will be gently dragged across the skin to skim off dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face. Once the dermaplaning is complete, a soothing substance will be applied to the skin, as well as sunscreen to protect your face. Treatment usually takes 20-30 minutes to complete. There is no downtime associated with dermaplaning.

What are the Results?

Dermaplaning clears away damaged skin cells to achieve a smooth, glowing complexion. Patients will be able to enjoy their results for about three weeks to one month before repeat treatment is needed. It is important that you wear sunscreen following dermaplaning, as sun damage can reverse the results, or even create pigmented blotches on your fresh skin.
