Our medical aestheticians at Dermatology & Skin Cancer Surgery Center can perform an exfoliation treatment with a soothing facial during a dermaplaning treatment. What is dermaplaning? Dermaplaning involves the use of a surgical blade in light, feathering strokes across the skin to gently remove the layer of fine vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, along with some surface layer skin cells allowing for a deep exfoliation. The procedure is ideal for those pregnant or nursing, when the use of chemicals is not recommended. The fine vellus hair that cannot be removed with a laser can cause buildup of oil and dirt in the follicles, so removing these hairs along with the exfoliation provides a much cleaner and smooth skin surface. Our patients love the way this treatment makes their face feel. Makeup will go on more smoothly and the skin will appear softer with a healthy glow. The dermaplane procedure is often used in conjunction with other treatments to allow for deeper penetration of products and chemical peels.

While patients with darker skin may try the dermaplane treatment (it may cause a discoloration to the skin), light skinned patients may be better candidates. In addition, we do ask that your skin be clear. Fever blisters, cold sores, active acne, or rashes on the skin will worsen if a dermaplaning treatment takes place, and we recommend waiting until your skin is blemish free. Also, please let us know what facial treatments, such as a chemical peel, you have had on your face recently. We do not want to irritate or damage your skin unnecessarily with a reaction.
What to Expect
The aestheticians use a small, sterile blade while holding the skin taut, swiping the blade in gentle upward motions while removing the vellus hair and dead skin cells. The procedure can take around 30 minutes to perform and no real down time is expected unless a chemical peel is applied afterwards. You can expect a smoother, glowing complexion after your dermaplane procedure. Because this is not an invasive skin treatment, we will not have to numb your skin. Each facial treatment is patient specific to target your skin health concerns, and we accomplish this by analyzing your skin for the best use of our products.
