Also known as microplanning, dermaplaning is a noninvasive, painless procedure for exfoliating the skin and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (or, what some like to call peach fuzz). Vellus hair can trap excess dirt and oils in the hair follicles, and removing the hair reveals a healthier, smoother looking complexion.

Alright, give me the details

Dermaplaning exfoliates the skin with a special instrument—a scalpel.. Because of the scalpel, in-office treatments are deeper and more effective, which is why we recommend pairing this treatment with targeted procedures like chemical peels or microdermabrasion for some of our patients, for maximum penetration due to the skin’s increased absorption. In addition to removing unwanted facial hair, dermaplaning is touted for its anti-aging benefits. From reducing fine lines and wrinkles to preventing acne by ridding the skin of bacteria build-up, dermaplaning will have you looking refreshed and radiant in no time. Maintain your glow with one to two treatments per month, depending on how quickly your hair grows back.

What are the benefits?

  • Increases skin care absorption
