Dermaplaning is an innovative approach to removing dead skin cells, allowing a jump start for skin renewal and infusion of nutrients. It is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Dermaplaning is most often used on those with rough, dry skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, mild acne scarring, or fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment results in a more refined, smooth, “glowing” appearance. Dermaplaning is only performed by licensed Estheticians that have been certified specifically on the treatment.
Different from Dermabrasion, this treatment will soften your skin by safely removing unwanted vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz) and dead skin cells, without using any harsh abrasives. Using a hand-held instrument, dermaplaning exfoliates at a much deeper level than dermabrasion. It results in a smoother, more even skin tone and allows for deeper product penetration.
Dermaplaning can be performed as a stand alone treatment or as pre-treatment for one of our medical grade peels.

What Can I Expect After Treatment?
After your dermaplaning treatment, there is no downtime. This means that you can return to work and other normal activities immediately after your appointment. You will also have results immediately after your appointment. If you have never received a dermaplaning treatment before, we recommend an initial series of 3 or more monthly treatments. To maintain results, we recommend monthly sessions as this coincides with the normal skin cycle of 30 days.
