Reveal fresher, brighter, smoother skin instantly with dermaplaning.
Dermaplaning is a method of manual exfoliation that consists of scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Once the exfoliation is complete the patient will enjoy the benefits of having no vellus “peach fuzz” hair on the face as well as better skincare product penetration and performance. Dermaplaning can be performed on all skin types. Dermaplaning works extremely well on its own, but it is also the perfect prep work for additional treatments. Hydrafacials and gentle chemical peels can be more effective when used in conjunction with dermaplaning.

Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among medical aesthetic providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, our nurses gently abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. This is an excellent option for patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are prohibited from using chemical peels due to the risk of chemicals being absorbed into the bloodstream. It is also the first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oil in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier-looking skin.
Dermaplaning is recommended to treat dry, rough skin, acne scars, uneven skin tone, large pores, fine lines, and unwanted facial hair.
What can I expect during my treatment?
Your provider will get you comfortable in one of our beautiful private treatment rooms. She will cleanse your face prior to treatment. She will treat one section of your face at a time by gently pulling the skin taut and delicately scraping across the surface with a small scalpel. The treatment is painless and safe when performed by a licensed professional.
Will dermaplaning make my hair come back thicker?
No, dermaplaning will not change the texture of the hair. Your hair will not grow back thicker, darker or coarser than it was before having the treatment.
How long does an appointment take?
No more than 30 minutes. Unless paired with another service like a chemical peel or HydraFacial.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime required.
When are the effects visible?
The effects are visible immediately.
How long will my results last?
The results can last up to six weeks.
How many dermaplaning treatments are needed to see results?
Patients will notice their skin looking and feeling smoother immediately after their treatment. Results typically last around 6 weeks. As dermaplaning is completely safe and non-invasive, it can be done as often as desired.
Is there any prep or aftercare required with my treatment?
We recommend that patients using Retin-A or Retinol creams discontinue those products for one week prior to dermaplaning as well as one week after treatment. As with all our treatments, we suggest a healthy skin care routine and medical grade sun protection to help enhance and maintain your beautiful skin. Any of our knowledgeable staff members can help you find products best suited for your skin type.
