Are you noticing that your complexion has become dull, dry, or uneven? If so, you may benefit from the non-invasive treatment of dermaplaning. This treatment is an effective solution to regain a radiant, youthful facial glow, with no downtime.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that is done to eliminate vellus hair, AKA peach fuzz, from the face. It is also done to eliminate dead skin cells from the epidermis to correct a dull complexion.

During treatment, your skin will be cleaned, and a sterile surgical blade will gently glide across the skin, removing dead skin cells and vellus hair as it goes. A hydrating moisturizing serum will be applied to the skin after treatment to nourish and protect.

Who is a Good Candidate Dermaplaning?

Patients who are living with dry or rough skin, mild hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars can often benefit from dermaplaning. Patients with nickel allergies should not undergo this treatment. A consultation with one of our skin experts can help to best determine if this treatment is right for you.


There is no downtime needed after a dermaplaning treatment, so patients can feel free to resume their daily activities. Sunscreen should be worn to protect the skin from UV rays. After treatment, patients can enjoy smoother, more radiant skin. Dermaplaning is often repeated within a month’s time, when the vellus hair begins to regrow.
