At Laser Skin & Wellness, our expert dermaplaning specialists use this treatment to exfoliate the skin by getting rid of dead skin cells and excess fine hair (peach fuzz) on the top layer of skin. This painless procedure rejuvenates the skin leaving you with baby-smooth skin and a glowing appearance. Dermaplaning can be combined with facials, chemical peels, enzyme treatments, or IPL for more rejuvenating results.
One of the most popular skin rejuvenation treatments right now is dermaplaning. This treatment exfoliates and removes the top layers of the skin to get rid of dead, aged skin cells. The aim of this procedure is to smooth out the skin by removing dead skin cells and vellus hair. This is an effective method for those who want to look refreshed and those who do not want any downtime associated with more aggressive treatments.
The basic concept of dermaplaning reflects the idea of a gentle shave. It uses a medical-grade scalpel that is slowly guided and safely scrapes across the skin’s surface at an angle to remove hair, dead cells, and other skin debris. This increases cellular turnover and helps your skin to stay smooth and soft. It’s an effective exfoliating procedure because it causes the body to use its natural healing processes to create new collagen. By removing dead skin cells and stimulating collagen, superficial hyperpigmentation and rough skin are removed, improving uneven skin tone for a clear complexion.
Post-treatment skincare products are more effective as they are no longer blocked by dead skin cells and facial hair! These products can penetrate deeper into the skin for maximum efficiency. This treatment is loved by patients because of how the skin looks and feels afterward, with a brighter complexion and flawless skin surface.

Our aestheticians recommend dermaplaning treatments every 4-6 weeks to keep skin looking youthful and refreshed. Depending on your skin concerns and aesthetic goals, this number may vary. Many of our Silver Beauty Club members include dermaplaning as a regular part of their beauty regimens.
One of the benefits of dermaplaning is that it’s safe for all skin types (including sensitive skin types) and skin tones. Dermaplaning does not use any harsh chemicals, making it safe for patients who are not otherwise good candidates for a chemical peel or other med spa treatment. You should postpone your dermaplaning treatment if you have deep cystic acne, active breakouts, or other active skin conditions.
Unless dermaplaning is combined with other treatments like chemical peels, it does not come with any recovery time. Most patients report some temporary redness post-treatment, but it resolves within a few hours. Since dermaplaning is non-invasive, there is no need for any post-treatment care. You are free to return to your normal daily activities following dermaplaning. It is recommended to avoid excessive heat on the skin for the first few days as your skin may be sensitive during this time. Make sure to also wear SPF 30+ to protect against direct sun exposure.
