Are you looking for a way to elevate your next facial or skincare treatment? Dermaplaning, also called epidermal leveling, is an excellent option that can be performed every 4 – 6 weeks with several benefits.
The dermaplaning process involves using a scalpel or sterile surgical blade to gently scrape the skin to remove vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face and lightly exfoliate the skin. It can be incorporated as an add-on to many facial treatments, including HydraFacial, laser treatments, microdermabrasion, and some chemical peels. Since it gently removes dead skin cells, products are able to penetrate more deeply, allowing for a more effective treatment.
The dermaplaning treatment painlessly exfoliates the stratum corneum to stimulate cellular turnover with no downtime. It is a great alternative to waxing and, contrary to what you may have thought, the hair does not grow back thicker or darker. Pregnant women and those with sensitive skin can have dermaplaning treatments. Other benefits may include lightening of post inflammatory scars from past acne and, with peach fuzz removed from the skin, women find makeup goes on smoother and more evenly for an airbrushed finish.
Although there are very few cons associated with dermaplaning, not everyone is a candidate for the procedure. Patients with active or cystic acne should avoid the treatment as it could cause irritation. Dermaplaning is also contraindicated in patients with hirsutism, a condition of male-pattern hair growth in women.

Q: What are the side effects of Dermaplaning?
A: The main side effect of dermaplaning is that your skin may be more sensitive for a few days so be especially careful to protect it from the sun.
Q: Is there anything I should avoid after dermaplaning?
A: Avoid direct sun and excessive heat for a few days. Of course, always use sunscreen when outdoors. It is best to avoid harsh scrubs and exfoliators for up to a week after your procedure
Q: Is Dermaplaning the same as shaving?
A: Dermaplaning is similar to shaving but it removes more dead skin cells than shaving. It is performed with a sharp scalpel on dry skin. Dermaplaning leaves the skin smoother than shaving.
Q: Can a Dermaplaning Treatment be combined with any other treatments?
A: Dermaplaning is an excellent treatment to combine with other facial treatments. With the stratum corneum removed, your skin will be more permeable so any nutrients or chemical will be able to enter the skin more effectively. It can be combined with and enhance the results of virtually any other aesthetic treatment.
