Do you want radiant, brighter, and firmer-looking skin? Are you tired of feeling self-conscious about baby facial hair, or peach fuzz? Our customized Dermaplaning treatments can help you achieve a smooth, flawless, and youthful facial appearance. 

Dermaplaning is ideal for: 

  • Removing peach fuzz or fine facial hair
  • Brightening a dull complexion
  • Minimizing superficial acne scars
  • Improving uneven skin tone
  • Promoting faster cell turnover
  • Patients who are allergic or sensitive to chemical peels or microdermabrasion


What is Dermaplaning and How Does it Work? 

Dermaplaning is an effective and safe skin exfoliation procedure. Your skin specialist will use a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of your skin, removing excess dead skin cells and unwanted peach fuzz hairs. This not only allows for deeper product penetration, but it will also reduce the appearance of fine lines and acne scars, and give you a smoother, radiant, and more even complexion.

When is Dermaplaning recommended? 

We often recommend dermaplaning to anyone who has unwanted facial hair, or who wants exfoliation. This treatment is particularly great for pregnant women, or those with sensitive skin since they cannot use certain products or exfoliating treatments.

Some of the great benefits of dermaplaning include: 

  • Painless and quick treatment
  • Instant results
  • No downtime required
  • Works on all skin types
  • Enhances the results of treatments such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels
  • Removes soft facial hair that traps dirt and oil
  • Extremely safe procedure

Duration: Dermaplaning is a relatively quick procedure and you can expect a treatment time of approximately 45 minutes. 

Number of treatments: Dermaplaning is typically performed every 3-4 weeks. The procedure will generally remove between 2-3 weeks worth of dead skin cells and you can enjoy your vibrant, beautiful glow for up to one month. 

Results: Patients will enjoy instant results following their dermaplaning treatment. You can expect smoother and brighter skin that is free of unwanted fine hairs and wrinkles.


Am I a good candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment for all skin types. However, patients who suffer from acne or have excess oil shouldn’t have this treatment performed. Always speak to a skin specialist before undergoing any cosmetic treatment.

Dermaplaning FAQ

What can I do to prepare my skin for dermaplaning?

To ensure the safest results, you must discontinue use of any exfoliating serums, enzymes, facial polishes or retinol 3-5 days before your treatment. In addition, avoid sun exposure for at least 5 days before the procedure and don’t schedule any Botox or filler treatments prior to dermaplaning.

Is dermaplaning painful?

One of the greatest benefits of Dermaplaning is that it is a completely safe and pain-free treatment. You may experience some slight redness in the treatment area but this is only temporary.

How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a safe cosmetic treatment that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to shave the surface of your skin and remove excess dead skin cells and peach fuzz hairs. The specialist will hold the tool at a 45 degree angle and brush it along your skin to remove unwanted fine hair and dead skin cells.

What results can I expect from the dermaplaning treatment?

Dermaplaning offers patients instant and incredible results. While you may have some temporary redness, you can expect healthier, smoother, and more youthful looking skin very soon after your treatment.
