What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive procedure that eliminates the topmost layers of the skin. A special scalpel is used to shave away dead skin cells, baby hairs, dirt, and oil from the skin. This procedure is most commonly performed on the face.

Dermaplaning can help with the following skin concerns:

  • Dull or dry skin
  • Peach fuzz
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Skin damaged by sun exposure

Who is a Candidate?

Almost anyone who wishes to improve the look and feel of their skin can benefit from dermaplaning. However, those with an active case of acne, cold sore outbreaks, eczema, psoriasis, skin burns, or skin rashes should speak with your provider before treatment to ensure that they are a good candidate. To learn more about this treatment, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment.

The Dermaplaning Treatment

The dermaplaning treatment does not require anesthesia. During the treatment, a special medical-grade scalpel will be used to remove the hair and dead skin cells from your skin. Your provider will gently drag the scalpel across the skin at a 45-degree angle. Following dermaplaning, a soothing gel, lotion, or ointment may be applied to the skin to reduce redness and irritation.

Dermaplaning Results

Following dermaplaning, your skin may be slightly red, swollen, or irritated. This will resolve over the next couple of hours. There is no downtime required, so you can return to your daily activities and even apply makeup immediately. Results typically last for three weeks before another dermaplaning treatment is needed.
