Transform Tired Skin with Dermaplaning

Have you considered trying dermaplaning? This highly effective yet gentle treatment manually exfoliates your skin, removing dead cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face using a specialized blade. Dermaplaning instantly reveals newer, brighter skin underneath for a refreshed complexion. It’s an excellent way to minimize the appearance of fine lines, acne scarring, uneven texture, and dull skin tone. The result is skin that looks and feels like a dream – smoother, brighter, and more radiant than ever before.

Key Benefits of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a simple but highly effective treatment that involves using a sterile, surgical blade to gently slough off dead skin cells and fine vellus hair from the face. The blade is stroked across the skin at an angle, removing the top layers of dull or dry skin, resulting in the following:


  • Instantly brighter and more radiant skin
  • Improved effectiveness of skincare products
  • Minimized appearance of fine lines and acne scars  
  • Smoother texture and more even skin tone
  • Zero downtime or irritation

Dermaplane Treatment: What to Expect

Your dermaplane treatment will begin by thoroughly cleansing your face to remove any makeup, oil, or impurities. Next, they will use a sterile, surgical-grade blade to carefully and precisely slough off the dead skin cells and hair from your face. Using short, feathery strokes, they will skim the blade across your skin, similar to shaving your face. You may feel a slight scratching sensation, but the treatment is not painful or uncomfortable. Your esthetician will work over your full face, including areas like above the upper lip where fine hair can be stubborn.


The entire process takes around 30 minutes from start to finish. Afterward, you’ll immediately notice how unbelievably smooth, soft, and radiant your skin looks and feels. There is no downtime – you can put on makeup right away and return to your normal activities if you wish. Your provider may recommend skin-calming products and sunscreen to use after your treatment.

Dermaplaning Results

After your dermaplaning treatment, you’ll instantly notice a significant difference in the look and feel of your skin. By removing that top layer of dull, dead skin cells and hair, your complexion will appear noticeably brighter, smoother, and more radiant, with results lasting around 3-4 weeks. Any built-up debris or lackluster skin tone will be stripped away, revealing the fresher, newer skin underneath. You may see an immediate improvement in rough texture, acne scarring, and fine lines as well.

Dermaplaning creates the perfect canvas for your skincare products to absorb better and work more effectively. With that newly exfoliated surface, you can expect your serums, moisturizers, and treatments to impart more visible benefits. Overall, you’ll likely be amazed at how refreshed, glowing, and revitalized your skin looks after just one dermaplaning session.

Side Effects of Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is considered a very safe and well-tolerated treatment when performed by a trained professional. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, there are some minor potential side effects to be aware of. The most common is a slight pinkness or flushing to the skin immediately after treatment, which typically resolves within a few hours. Some clients may also experience very minor swelling for a day or two post-treatment. In rare cases, dermaplaning could potentially cause bleeding, bruising, or infection if the skin is not thoroughly prepped or the blade is not sterile. Scarring is extremely unlikely when the treatment is done properly. Those with active acne flare-ups, rashes, sunburns, or certain skin conditions may want to postpone dermaplaning until symptoms subside.
