Exfoliation is an important part of any skin care regimen, and dermaplaning is one of the most effective exfoliation techniques.

About Dermaplaning

Dull complexion, acne, and other skin problems often begin with dead skin cells, oils and dirt that accumulate on the surface of the skin. Daily exfoliation at home is a good way to reduce these impurities from the skin, but it may not be enough. Dermaplaning is a more intensive method of exfoliation, and we recommend periodic treatments to keep your skin healthy and beautiful.

Experience with Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a relatively simple procedure that involves removing the outermost layer of skin, but it needs to be performed with precision. Going too deep may cause unwanted side effects and damage the skin. We will help you feel comfortable during the procedure and confident in the results.

Dermaplaning FAQs

What is Dermaplaning?

Removing the outer layer of skin to address wrinkles, hyperpigmentation and other flaws can be accomplished in many ways. Dermaplaning is one of the most traditional techniques, and we are proud to be able to offer it to our patients. Dermaplaning may be used as an alternative to chemical peels and laser treatments, or it can prepare the skin for these types of procedures.

What Happens During Dermaplaning Treatments?

Dermaplaning is a manual exfoliation process. A scalpel is placed against the skin at a specific angle so as to remove the outermost layers, as well as the soft peach fuzz hair. The scalpel is gently pulled across the skin using short, quick strokes.

You should inform us of any skin conditions, allergies, or other problems that you have so that he can ensure that you are a good candidate for dermaplaning.
