Common Questions about Dermaplaning
One of the reasons that your skin may appear lifeless and dull is because you have a build-up of dead skin cells clogging your pores and marring your complexion. Dermaplaning is a non-invasive treatment that can exfoliate your skin and get rid of those dead skin cells so that your skin can glow like it was meant to.
What Is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a skin revitalizing treatment that is able to both improve the look and texture of your skin while also removing unwanted vellus facial hair. Generally, this treatment is an excellent alternative to harsh chemical peels and microdermabrasion treatments.
How Does It Work?
Dermaplaning works in a rather simple way: it exfoliates your skin and removes dead skin cells with medical scalpel. This scalpel gently glides over your skin in a completely painless manner.
For the treatment, the blade is moved along your skin at a 45-degree angle. This motion will remove the uppermost layer of your skin, clearing away all those dead skin cells and also removing that unwanted, fine hair on your face.
During your treatment, you will only feel a gentle scratching sensation as the blade is moved over your skin. This treatment is pain-free, and you will not experience any discomfort.
What Are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?
There are several benefits of dermaplaning. For one, as the scalpel removes dead skin cells, your skin with be fresher and your skin tone will be improved. Most of our patients report that their skin glows after their treatment. Dermaplaning can also reduce the look of acne scars, minimize any fine lines, and treat areas of hyperpigmentation. Last, this treatment can rid you of that fine hair on your chin and around your lips.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?

When Will I See Results?
