What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is an innovative facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths your skin by removing dead skin cells and thin facial hair for a soft, radiant complexion. Sometimes called dermablading, this treatment is performed with a careful scraping technique with a facial blade. Dermaplaning is requested more these days because it is nonsurgical and able to provide smoother and younger-looking skin.

What Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning procedures are performed in our Scottsdale, AZ office as an outpatient procedure. After your skin is cleaned, the treatment will begin with a gentle skimming of the surface of the skin with a special blade. We will skim the skin repeatedly until the treatment areas have been entirely treated. The amount of time needed for your appointment will depend upon the area being addressed, but it usually takes somewhere around 30 minutes. After your dermaplaning session, skin can be a little pink. This is normal and will fade in the coming days. It's common for some peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to scratch your skin as this could cause scarring. As usual, we always recommend avoiding prolonged sun exposure. Our team will discuss a skincare routine with you to help maintain and enhance your results.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliating treatment. Patients should not experience any pain or discomfort. The treatment removes the very top layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz on the face.

Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you have an excess amount of "peach fuzz" or have tired-looking skin, this is a great treatment option as it is simple, affordable, noninvasive, and requires virtually no downtime. Dermaplaning removes old damaged skin and thin hair on the face for a gorgeous profile. This process also helps to remove trapped dirt and bacteria, in addition to promoting collagen and elastin fibers for a glowing complexion.

Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. Contrary to the popular myth that hair will grow back thicker when shaved, dermaplaning does not interfere in the natural hair production process.

How often should I get dermaplaning?
We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. We can help you determine when it's best for you to return for follow-up treatments.
