What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a form of exfoliation that removes dead skin cells and "peach fuzz". When the top layer of dead skin is removed, it leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and allows your makeup to go on much better! Dermaplaning also boosts skincare product efficacy — it clears the way for medical-grade skincare products to penetrate deeper and work more effectively.

How does dermaplaning work?

A sterilized, specially-designed medical scalpel is applied to your skin at a forty-five-degree angle. This tool is used on your skin in a technique that is similar to shaving, but Dermaplaning only removes vellus hair, also known as "peach fuzz," which will not result in thicker or darker hair growth. The tool completely removes peach fuzz and dead skin, leaving a smooth, fresh appearance, reducing signs of age, and eliminating other skin concerns.

What skin concerns can dermaplaning treat?

Dermaplaning in Scottsdale successfully treats a range of concerns, including the following:

  • Dry, flaking, rough skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Unwanted peach fuzz (vellus hair) 
  • Acne scars 
  • Other small scars
  • Uneven skin texture

What happens during a dermaplaning treatment?

Dermaplaning is a short, painless treatment.

We will begin by thoroughly cleansing your skin to ensure there are no toxins or buildup that could interfere with the treatment. Next, we will hold your skin taut as we apply the scalpel at a forty-five-degree angle, then move it along your face and neck to painlessly remove the top layer of dead skin, debris, and peach fuzz. This results in very bright, smooth, fresh, and youthful-looking skin.

Does dermaplaning require any recovery time?

There is no recovery period required after a dermaplaning treatment. You will be able to return to your usual routine and activities. However, we suggest waiting until the following day before you apply any makeup to your skin. 

You may notice some minor redness in the following two days after dermaplaning. You may also feel some mild tingling when you apply your usual skincare products. However, these mild effects will pass after a couple of days.

Use a good moisturizer every day and apply hydrating masks to keep your skin hydrated, fresh, and supple after this treatment.
