Dermaplaning is a skin care treatment that removes dead skin cells and vellus hair. Using a small and sterile blade we gently sweep in an upward motion to achieve instant results in skin texture and tone while removing all facial hair. Long-term results are increased cell turnover rate, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, reduction of acne scarring, and a brighter more youthful glow.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that creates smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin. Especially with age, dead skin cells make the surface of the skin appear worn and haggard. With this procedure, you can enjoy beautiful new skin that looks and feels younger. Not only does this treatment improve the appearance of facial skin, but as a result of that, our patients feel more self-confident.

Unlike microdermabrasion used to sand off dead skin cells and clear clogged pores around the mouth, nose, and chin, Dermaplaning scrapes off the top layer of skin. While this method of exfoliation works on all skin types, it is ideal for anyone with dry skin.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

This procedure consists of removing the top layer of skin using a surgical scalpel. Once the skin heals following the treatment, it looks brighter, healthier, and smoother. Although the thought of someone taking a blade to your face might sound frightening, our medical team has many years of experience and performs every procedure with extreme care and gentleness.

The fact is that Dermaplaning is no more traumatic than shaving your face or legs. Before starting the procedure, we cleanse and dry your skin. While positioning your face to keep it taut, a sterile 10-gauge blade shaves off dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz.

Although everyday men and woman can enjoy the benefits provided by Dermaplaning, this has become a preferred treatment used by Hollywood’s elite. Because it removes peach fuzz on the face along with dead skin cells, the surface becomes incredibly smooth. Especially for people on camera, Dermaplaning makes them look their best.

Another unique aspect of Dermaplaning is that because new skin allows skincare products to penetrate more easily, you can keep it looking vibrant and young with less work. If you require a more aggressive approach to skin rejuvenation such as a chemical peel or laser treatment, we might use Dermaplaning to prepare the skin ahead of time. We can discuss that with you during your consultation.

Who Makes the Perfect Candidate?

The great thing about Dermaplaning is that it works great for all skin types, excluding people with acne. If you have deep cystic acne, it is best to wait until your breakouts clear up. Because there are no harsh chemicals involved, even pregnant and nursing women can have this procedure performed. Again, we will go over all the potential issues of having a treatment done during your consultation with one of our medical experts.
