Dermaplaning for Smooth, Flawless Skin

a close up shot of a women.

Despite your best efforts, sometimes, your skin just ends up looking dull. Dead skin cell buildup, rough texture, and bothersome peach fuzz, also known as vellus hairs, can all contribute to a less-than-vibrant appearance. And if you’ve ever tried to get rid of those tiny hairs on your own, you know it’s a tedious and never-ending task. If this sounds like you, our most popular procedure, dermaplaning, might just be your new favorite treatment!

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning, sometimes referred to as dermablading, uses a medical-grade, stainless steel scalpel to gently and evenly exfoliate the skin on your face. Peach fuzz and dead skin cells don’t stand a chance against this highly effective smoothing and softening treatment. Dermaplane facials are especially effective at creating a flawless canvas for makeup application, along with helping your skin absorb your daily skincare products.

Dermaplaning Benefits

Immediately after your dermaplane facial, you’ll notice softer, smoother skin. This safe and painless treatment works to combat rough texture, uneven skin tone, dullness, and trapped impurities, leaving behind baby soft skin. Dermaplaning’s natural exfoliating process even stimulates skin cell regeneration, promoting healthy, vibrant, clearer skin.

Hair Removal

That annoying peach fuzz you keep shaving off in the shower? You can bid it farewell with a dermaplane facial. Attempting your own facial hair removal isn’t just unsafe, it’s also highly ineffective, especially if you use a regular razor. Your daily razor carries a wide range of bacterial growths, even if you can’t see them—not to mention, it’s exceedingly dull when compared to a medical-grade scalpel. When you use it for facial hair removal, you expose your delicate facial skin to a number of potentially harmful microorganisms. Instead, dermaplaning uses an extremely sharp, sterilized blade to ensure complete hair removal.

Enhanced Product Absorption

If you invest in high-quality skincare products, you want to get the most out of them. With dermaplaning, your high-end skincare products no longer have to fight through layers of dead skin cells to reach their target. After treatment, you’ll notice that any products you use absorb more efficiently, leading to more vibrant-looking skin over the long-term.

Flawless Makeup Canvas

If you want truly flawless foundation application, then you need to try this incredible treatment. Say goodbye to the days of cakey, uneven, dry-looking complexions and hello to smooth, impeccable skin. With peach fuzz out of the picture, your makeup will lay perfectly against your skin, giving you a photo-ready finish every day.

Clearer Skin

As dead skin cells and oils build up within your pores, you can develop persistent acne or rough skin texture. Dermaplaning effectively removes impurities from the surface of your skin, giving it room to breathe and encouraging natural cell turnover.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplane facials are performed on the face, neck, and beneath the chin. After thoroughly cleansing and prepping your skin, your aesthetic specialist will hold your skin taut while gently scraping a medical-grade scalpel along the surface of your skin at a 45-degree angle. This process effectively removes dead skin cells, oil buildup, trapped dirt, and vellus hairs from the surface of your face.

For even more dramatic results, try one of our most popular treatments, the Derma Dolce Delight! This signature treatment combines the benefits of a dermaplane facial with the rejuvenating properties of a light chemical peel.

Because dermaplaning provides manual exfoliation, it properly prepares the skin for deeper penetration of a chemical peel’s exfoliants. Combining the two results in a deeper, more even peel and seriously impressive results. The Derma Dolce Delight works to significantly brighten your complexion, while reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation, acne scarring, sun damage, and clogged pores.

What to Expect From Dermaplaning

Results from dermaplaning are immediate: you’ll notice softer, smoother, more vibrant skin which typically lasts several weeks. The treatment is non-invasive, so you won’t require any downtime, and because it’s quick and painless, you can squeeze it in on your lunch break. Because dermaplaning costs a fraction of what other exfoliating treatments can run you, you can repeat the procedure as frequently as necessary!

After treatment, you may experience slight skin redness, which typically dissipates within one to two days. Because you’ve just exposed new skin cells, take extra care to protect your skin from exposure to harmful UV rays. To maintain your flawless skin, we recommend scheduling regular treatments at intervals of three to four weeks.

Who is a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Anyone suffering from a lackluster complexion and bothersome peach fuzz is a candidate for dermaplaning! However, if you’re currently dealing with an active acne flareup, you’ll want to wait until it clears to avoid further irritating or tearing of your delicate facial skin. Safe, natural, and highly effective, dermaplaning is a great alternative to chemical-based treatments for individuals with particularly sensitive skin.
