Skin resurfacing improves wrinkles, skin texture and color by removing the top, outermost layer of skin. This leaves skin more supple and vibrant while stimulating elastin renewal, thus resulting in healthier, firmer skin. Dermaplaning is one of the most effective facial exfoliation treatments available to patients. It is a process that has been used in conjunction with medical skin care for the past two decades because it is proven to be very effective at stimulating radiant, healthier skin.
Dermaplaning is a quick, noninvasive, painless procedure in which surface dead skin cells are manually scraped away. There is no recovery time involved with this procedure. The skin starts to heal itself, immediately producing newer, healthier skin.
Dermaplaning increases cellular turnover while smoothing and softening the surface of the skin. As an added bonus, it removes the fine vellus hair on the face, which can trap oil and dirt, leading to other skin problems. Once the fine hair, dirt, oil and dead skin cells are scraped away, skin products and treatments are more effective because they penetrate more deeply.
All skin types can benefit from this procedure. Results are immediately visible, and the skin is left looking smooth, supple and fresh. Optimally, dermaplaning can be done every four weeks, thereby allowing the skin to complete its normal skin rejuvenation cycle in between sessions.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermaplaning
Am I a good candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is safe and effective for all skin types and colors. However, if you have any of the following conditions, Dermaplaning cannot be performed:
- Autoimmune diseases
- Active Shingles
- Thin, weak or delicate skin
- Taking blood thinners
- Accutane use
Please advise your aesthetician of any medical condition or medication you are currently taking to assure your treatment is safe, beneficial and right for you.
After my treatment will my facial hair grow back thicker?
No. There are two types of hair. Fine facial hair or “peach fuzz” is called Vellous hair and is the light colored translucent hair that grows on a woman’s face, chest and back. The other type of hair is called Terminal hair, which is the coarser hair you see on the head, under the arms, brows and on the lower face of men. Because Vellous hair is so fine and different in structure than Terminal hair, cutting it does not make it grow in thicker, darker or stubbly. It grows back with the same exact texture and color as always.
Can Dermaplaning be performed in the same visit as a peel?
A peel done immediately following dermaplaning is an excellent way to make sure the peel penetrates deeper and more evenly into your skin. They go great together and we recommend the combination for optimal results.
How often can this procedure be performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3-4 weeks.
