Dermaplane Services

Dermaplaning is an excellent anti-aging treatment that provides both immediate and cumulative results with each facial you receive. Dermaplaning is a physical form of exfoliation that has removed dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the surface of your skin. Your face should feel softer than ever and look brighter and more youthful. It is also highly effective in minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. Dermaplaning is great for preparing the skin prior to enzyme treatments and facials to increase penetration of active ingredients. Monthly treatments are recommended since improvement in your skin is cumulative. Dermaplaning creates the perfect skin texture to apply makeup and is the ‘must have’ treatment to prepare for special occasions!

One of the problems with aging is that your body ​exfoliates less and less. This results in a build-up of dead skin and dirt on your face that can clog your pores and reduce the appearance of your skin.

Dermaplaning is a first choice for people who have excess vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives you healthier skin.

Dermaplaning is a great treatment if you are pregnant, or nursing and you want a deep exfoliation but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream and may be transferred to the fetus or the child.


The benefits of Dermaplaning include:

  • Minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars
  • Removes facial hair and associated bacteria and odors
  • Stimulates collagen production, improving skin quality and reducing wrinkles
  • Evens out skin tone and smooths skin texture making super-smooth skin
  • Prepares skin for better skincare product penetration
  • Makeup goes on more smoothly and looks more evenly distributed


Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water.

  • Cleanse: Use a gentle cleanser and warm, not hot, water. Splash water on face. Do not use abrasive cleansers, wash cloths, Clarisonic, or hot shower spray for the first 24-48 hours. Do not use cleansers, serums or spot treatments containing retinol, salicylic acid or Benzoyl Peroxide (BPO) for 5 days following treatment.
  • Tone: Hydrating and brightening toners applied with a cotton round will penetrate deeper into the skin. If you are sensitive, try all products on a small area before applying full face.
  • Serums: Active ingredients in serums penetrate much better now, so you’ll see quicker results. Ask your esthetician about the right serum(s) for your skin. Please do not use Retin-A for 5 days pre and post dermaplaning. For darker skin tones: use a brightening serum. Ask your esthetician for recommendations.
  • Moisturizer: Choose a hydrating moisturizer and apply twice daily. It’s common for skin to feel tight but dewy to the touch. This is good and will only last a short time. Moisturizer locks in skin’s hydration with the added absorption of its active ingredients. For darker skin tones: use a 1% hydrocortisone cream for 5 days following treatment to calm inflammation.
  • SPF: Your skin is more vulnerable to UV rays after exfoliation. SPF is essential to protect your skin – even on cloudy days when UVA (aging) rays are present.
  • DO: Avoid sun exposure as much as possible. If you must be in the sun, apply and reapply SPF every 2 hours, wear a hat and seek shade.
  • DO: Delay exposure to excessive heat, heavy workouts, steam rooms and saunas for 24-48 hours post treatment.
  • DO: Wait 7 days before having any facial waxing done. Waxing may be done prior to dermaplaning. The esthetician will only dermaplane up to the waxing border so as not to over stress your skin.
  • DO: Schedule your appointments 4 weeks apart to optimize results.
  • DO: Call your aesthetician with both compliments and concerns.
  • DO: Enjoy your new look.
