Beauty/Appearance Medicine


DermaplaningDermaplaning is also known as Dermal Edge Therapy, Epidermal Leveling or Blading.  This is an extremely safe, gentle and effective skin care treatment of manual exfoliation.  This is an extremely popular treatment that is safe for all skin types.  Dermaplaning removes the outer layers of dead skin cells and safely removes the Vellus hair known as “peach fuzz”.  The immediate results are smooth, soft and more radiant skin.

How is a Dermaplane Treatment Performed

A dermaplane treatment is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade which is held against the skin at a 45 degree angle and gently stroked along the skin, similar to shaving.  The skin care professional holds the area of skin taught while stroking the skin with the blade, removing the outer micro-layers of the skin and any hair in the area.  The treatment is painless and there is no downtime.  Products applied after the dermaplaning are absorbed better and monthly treatments will improve the skin.  It is recommended to wait at least 3 to 4 weeks between treatments.  Those with active acne lesions or excessive oil production are not good candidates for dermaplaning.  For more sensitive individuals, the skin may be pink or feel slightly dry immediately following the treatment.  These symptoms are temporary and resolve quickly.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning
