Dermaplaning is a safe and painless exfoliating procedure that removes dead skin cells and fine facial hair from the surface of your skin. A sterile surgical scalpel (dermatome) is used to exfoliate the outermost skin layer, revealing brighter, smoother skin. Additional benefits of dermaplaning include softer lines and wrinkles and a more even skin tone. 

The procedure should take no more than 30 minutes and does not usually carry any significant side effects or risks. No recovery time is needed to heal from dermaplaning. However, you should avoid this procedure if you have inflammatory skin conditions such as acne, rosacea, psoriasis, and eczema.

More About Dermaplaning

Who is this treatment for?

Most people are suitable candidates for dermaplaning. The treatment is especially beneficial for older people whose skin is wrinkled, rougher, and has a larger buildup of dead skin cells. Individuals with superficial acne and uneven skin tones will also appreciate dermaplaning. Lastly, pregnant women can undergo dermaplaning as a safe alternative to chemical peels.

Dermaplaning can even be performed on sensitive skin, as the cosmetic technician can manually control the depth of the exfoliation. Individuals with inflammatory skin conditions, however, should avoid this procedure. 


What are the expected results of this treatment? 

Clients who have received dermaplaning enjoy smoother, brighter, and overall healthier skin. Their wrinkles will be less visible, and their skin tone evened out. Their skin will also be easier for cosmetics to penetrate, amplifying the effects of makeup and skincare products. 
Dermaplaning can be paired with other facial treatments for increased rejuvenating effects.
