Dermaplaning is a safe and gentle exfoliating procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smooths the skin surface by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Sometimes referred to as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a facial blade or scalpel to carefully scrape the vellus (fine) hair. This process not only removes dead skin cells, but also removes the fine layer of hair on the face (sometimes called “peach fuzz”) to reveal an ultra-smooth, glowing skin complexion. This is usually done as an add-on to our Luksus Signature Facial.
This is suitable for most skin tones and types, especially if you:
Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
Have uneven skin tone
Have a moderate amount of fine facial hair
Do not have skin that is highly sensitive
Do not have rosacea or severe acne
Dermaplaning procedures are typically completed in our office as an outpatient procedure and are often combined during a facial or another skin care treatment. After cleaning the skin, the treatment will begin with a careful scraping of the surface of the skin with a facial blade or scalpel. The esthetician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will vary, depending on whether part of or the entire face is being addressed. During your consultation, our esthetician will explain the process to you.
What to Expect
After your dermaplaning procedure, your skin may appear a bit pink. This is a normal reaction that will subside in the coming days. Patients will need to avoid prolonged sun exposure because the skin will be very sensitive in the days following your treatment. You can expect immediate results after the treatment as dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin tight away. Your skin will be radiant and soft, which makes dermaplaning a great procedure to seek out right before a formal event, wedding, or a night out. To help you care for and protect your new, youthful skin, our team will discuss a recommended skin care routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
