What is Dermaplaning?
Individual Treatment: $100
Add-On for Any Skin Service – $50
Dermaplaning is a skin-resurfacing procedure in which an exfoliating scalpel is used to carefully scrape away dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. As these dull, dead cells are scraped away, new skin is exposed and a more youthful appearance is achieved. Dermaplaning can be used to treat fine lines, acne scars, dry skin, dull skin, and sun damage. It can also be used to temporarily remove “peach fuzz” or the small, soft hairs that cover the face.
Dermaplaning has boomed in popularity over the last several years due to social media influencers and celebrity endorsements. Professional makeup artists especially appreciate the benefits of dermaplaning, as the smooth skin it produces serves as an optimal surface for smooth makeup application. Another benefit of dermaplaning is that it can be used in combination with other facial rejuvenating treatments. When preceded by deep exfoliation from dermaplaning, the efficacy of treatments such as facial masks, skincare products, or chemical peels is amplified as they are allowed to penetrate deeper into the skin’s layers.

What to Expect
When you arrive for your dermaplaning treatment, your skin will be cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied to the treatment area.
Once the anesthesia has been given time to take effect, an exfoliating blade will be dragged carefully over the skin at a 45-degree angle which will allow for the removal of dead cells on the surface without damaging the skin beneath. This process only takes 20 to 30 minutes. Next, a soothing skincare solution will be massaged into the treated skin, adding nourishment and hydration.
Recovery After Dermaplaning
No downtime is necessary following dermaplaning treatment. However, care must be taken to avoid damage to the sensitive, newly exposed skin. It is important to avoid sun exposure as much as possible and to protect treated skin with sunscreen. Sun exposure could result in the reversal of dermaplaning results or discoloration. Some redness may occur following treatment but should subside within 2 to 3 days.
Consultation for Dermaplaning in DeLand, FL
During your consultation for your dermaplaning treatment, your concerns about your skin, your skin’s condition, and your medical history will be discussed to ensure that dermaplaning is the right treatment for you.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
No, dermaplaning is painless. This makes dermaplaning a preferable option for the removal of hair on the face versus other methods such as threading or waxing.
Are there any risks or side effects associated with dermaplaning?
There are only minimal side effects associated with dermaplaning and consist mainly of redness or discoloration. Occasionally, pigmentation in the treatment area may appear patchy. This condition may resolve over time. Rarely, scarring or infection may occur. A steroid shot is often used to treat any scarring which may have occurred as a result of dermaplaning.
Will dermaplaning cause my “peach fuzz” to grow?
No. Dermaplaning will not affect the thickness, coarseness, color, or rate of growth in hair.
What is the difference between dermaplaning and dermabrasion?
While dermaplaning uses an exfoliating scalpel, or dermatome, to remove dead skin cells, dermabrasion employs the use of a brush to exfoliate the skin.
When should dermaplaning be avoided?
Dermaplaning may worsen symptoms of existing skin issues such as eczema, acne, rosacea, psoriasis, or sunburn.
Is there any preparation necessary prior to treatment?
Sun exposure should be avoided for one week prior to treatment to avoid any potential sun damage which may be exacerbated during treatment.
Is dermaplaning safe to do at home?
Dermaplaning may be performed at home. However, there are substantial risks involved and the tools and expertise which a professional can provide will almost definitely yield better results.
