Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure that has been around for nearly 35 years. It is a method of manual exfoliation that uses a sterile scalpel to gently shave off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. In simple terms, dermaplaning is a simple shaving of the epidermis to reveal healthier refreshed skin.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except for those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. It can also be combined with other treatments such as facials and chemical peels. Please discuss any skin allergies or sensitivities you may have with our medical aesthetician or Dr. Serrao before undergoing any treatment in our practice.Anti-aging skin care treatment without the chemicals
Anti-aging skin care treatment without the chemicals
Dermaplaning is a favorite treatment in our cosmetic practice. It is popular in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. This is also a great treatment for women who are pregnant or nursing and want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals could cause to the unborn child if absorbed into the bloodstream. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair (‘peach fuzz’) on the skin. This hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing this “fuzz” gives the patient healthier looking skin.

What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective method of manual exfoliation that uses a sterile blade to shave off the top layer of dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother and brighter complexion.
What does Dermaplaning feel like?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it is on your face.
First, our medical aesthetician, Angelica, cleanses and thoroughly dries your skin. Next, she will pull an area of your skin taut, and gently move the sterile blade in swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz leaving you with smoother and brighter skin.
How long is the treatment?
As a single treatment, dermaplaning can be done in about 30 to 45 minutes. However, many of our patients have it performed as an add-on to their facial or chemical peel.
Will Dermaplaing make my facial hair come back thicker?
No, dermaplaning will not change the histology of the hair. This means that the hair will not come back thicker, darker or coarser than it was before having the treatment.
What is the cost of Dermaplaning?
Typically, dermaplaning fees are between $75 and $150 per session. In our practice we charge $99 per session and $120 per session with the pure oxygen infusion treatment. Package pricing is also available.
How many Dermaplaning treatments are needed to see results?
Patients will notice their skin is immediately smooth after the treatment is completed but typically need treatments once a month in order to achieve desired results. It is best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
Who is a candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with active acne. Patients wanting to treat acne scars, sun damage, fine lines and very dry skin are great candidates for dermaplaning. Patients that use Retin-A, Retinol creams or other exfoliants must discontinue those products for one week prior to dermaplaning as well as one week after treatment.
