Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair.
Dermaplaning is an effective method of physical exfoliation that uses a medical grade stainless steel scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair to reveal a smoother and brighter facial complexion.
Yes. Dermaplaning is often used in combination with our SkinCeuticals Peels and HydraFacials to create a smooth canvas that helps products penetrate more deeply into the skin.
You may consider dermaplaning if you have skin concerns such as:
Actinic keratosis (scaly skin patches that can lead to skin cancer).
Dull or dry skin.
Peach fuzz (light, soft hair on your face).
Skin damaged by sun exposure.
Fine lines (wrinkles).
Some people with preexisting skin concerns shouldn’t have dermaplaning.
An active case of acne.
Cold sore outbreaks.
Moles, freckles, skin tags or other skin growths.
Skin burns, such as those from radiation therapy.
Skin rashes (contact dermatitis).
You might feel a scratching or stinging sensation on your skin, but dermaplaning usually isn’t painful. Your aesthetician moves a surgical steel blade across your skin which gently exfoliates and removes hair. They may apply a soothing gel or ointment to your skin after to reduce redness, swelling or irritation. The treatment books for 30 minutes.
Your skin may be red, swollen and slightly tender after the dermaplaning procedure.
