What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a is a noninvasive exfoliating skincare treatment that uses a blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. It’s also called microplaning, blading, or the Scalpel Facial.

Dermaplaning aims to make your skin’s surface smooth, youthful, and radiant. This treatment claims to remove deep scarring from acne and uneven pockmarks on your skin. It’s also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face. Dermaplaning brightens skin, allows for better product penetration, and reduces appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Acne Scars
  • Dull Skin

Am I a good candidate for this treatment?

Good candidates for dermaplaning

  • Have superficial facial hair or “peach fuzz”
  • Have dry or dull skin
  • Want to exfoliate their skin to allow for better penetration of medical grade skincare products, improved efficacy of light treatments
  • Have large pores
  • Have superficial lines and wrinkles
  • Have blackheads

Patients with Active Acne Should NOT Dermaplane
Patients with oily, acne, or cystic breakouts are not good candidates for the treatment. If you have pustules (puss filled breakouts) then it is a good idea to postpone the appointment. If you have cystic acne, you can still proceed with the dermaplaning treatment but you would need to make sure your provider is experienced enough because the surface of the skin will not be smooth. (Dermaplaning with cystic acne is beneficial because it allows for any treatment products to penetrate deeper into your skin.)

Can this treatment be done on darker skin?

Yes. Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and tones.

How long does each treatment take?

Exact treatment times may vary depending on the patient, but a single session typically takes no longer than 30 minutes.

How many sessions will I need to see results?

Best results occur after a series of six treatments, with visible improvements after two or three treatments.

How often/far apart should the sessions be?

Sessions should be between 3 and 4 weeks apart.

Will it be painful?

No. Dermaplaning treatments are not painful.

Is there any downtime required?

You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure.
