What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a treatment where the top layer of the skin is shaved away using a small surgical blade. This process can reduce the appearance of acne scars, restore brighter and softer skin, remove fine vellus hairs, and help the skin absorb skin treatments more effectively.
How Does Dermaplaning Work?
Dermaplaning works by gently removing dead skin cells on the upper layers of the skin to address acne scars, sun damage, fine wrinkles, or dry skin. The treatment can also remove fine hairs on the face.
Dermaplaning is usually combined with a chemical peel or laser treatment to help the skin get the full benefits from the treatment.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
In addition to removing the rough outer portion of the dermis, dermaplaning also helps to remove unwanted vellus hair also known as “peach fuzz”.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a quick non-invasive treatment for smoother-looking skin. The best candidates are healthy individuals who are about to undergo a chemical peel or laser treatment session. It also works best for individuals who are undergoing facial treatments to help the skin absorb serums better.

Your Dermaplaning Consultation
A dermaplaning consultation focuses on your appearance goals and your complete medical history. Once it is confirmed that you have no medical condition that could result in complications, you can receive a dermaplaning treatment right away.
We will give you an overview of how many dermaplaning sessions you will need in order to see significant improvement.
Since the treatment is non-invasive, you won’t have to prepare in any special way. It is recommended to avoid sun exposure, retinoids, Botox or filler appointments, or facial waxing at least a week before your dermaplaning appointment.
How Often Can Dermaplaning Be Performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed as often as twice per month.
Is Dermaplaning Painful?
Dermaplaning is generally painless.
Dermafacial (Dermaplane w/Facial)
Dermaplaning can be combined with a facial for maximum exfoliation and relaxation. Once the dead skin and vellus hair is removed, enzymes are applied for extra exfoliation followed by a mask and massage.
Dermapeel (Dermaplaning w/Chemical Peel)
While dermaplaning and chemical peels are effective apart, they work synergistically together. Dermaplaning helps to remove the outer layers of the skin, making the chemical solution in a chemical peel far more effective. Since dermaplaning enables the acidic solution to reach deeper levels of the dermis, the chemical solution in a combination treatment does not require as many passes as if used independently.
