Dermaplaning: Youthful, Glowing Skin in a Matter of Minutes

Dermaplaning removes the fine peach fuzz hairs from your face and provides a chemical-free exfoliation that lifts dead cells and environmental debris. Using a medical-grade scalpel, dermaplaning improves the texture of your skin and leaves it super smooth and radiant. A common concern is that the shaving process can make the hairs grown back darker and longer. This “old wives’ tale” is simply not true. Your genes determine how fast and thick your hair grows.

Benefits of Dermaplaning:

  • Allows better absorption of skincare products.
  • Creates a smooth canvas so makeup goes on evenly.
  • Removes hair that can trap bacteria and worsen acne.
  • Evens out tone and texture in people with dry, rough skin by speeding up skin cell turnover.
  • Is an alternative in people who cannot toleration chemical exfoliation or peels.
  • Can combine with other treatments like chemical peels. As a result, this leads to enhanced results.
  • Is an option for pregnant or nursing women. As a result, chemicals are not absorbed through the skin.
  • There is no downtime. So you can go back to your normal activities right away.


Options to Dermaplaning:

  • Chemical peels: This in-office procedure uses alpha and beta-hydroxy acids to break the bonds between the surface skin cells, thus increasing cellular turnover. Another difference is that chemical peels cause visible skin peeling. This peeling lasts from  1 day to up to 2 weeks.
  • Microdermabrasion: Is simlilar to dermaplaning in that they are both forms of manual exfoliation. While the dermaplaning procedure uses a scalpel, microdermabrasion uses a diamond tipped wand.
  • Retinol: Is a topical serum  medication that is applied by the patient at home. Retinols cause increased cell turnover, but usually take a few weeks to see effects.
