Dermaplaning is a safe, non-abrasive treatment that utilizes a scalpel to exfoliate the epidermis of dead skin cells and of fine vellus hair known as “peach fuzz.” The skin is held taut as light strokes are made across the skin at a forty-five degree angle with a scalpel, revealing brighter and smoother skin. Dermaplaning allows products to penetrate deeper into the skin when the epidermal skin and facial hair is removed. Oil and dirt often get trapped in the facial hair, causing buildup that leads to dull-looking skin. Many patients have concerns that dermaplaning may cause the hair to grow back thicker and dark, but this is not the case. The hair will grow back with the same texture and color as it did prior to the treatment.

It is common for dermaplaning to be recommended prior to medical procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels, and laser treatments. This procedure can be performed as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments to enhance results. Dermaplaning is extremely effective for treating rough, dry skin, mild acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and removal of peach fuzz. The result is a more refined, smooth, and radiant appearance. Dermaplaning does not have any downtime or adverse effects, making it a perfect option for many patients.
