What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective exfoliation procedure that removes dead skill cells and vellus hair also known as peach fuzz. The technique involves using a sharp, sterile surgical blade in gentle upward motions, similar to shaving. The process of dermaplaning triggers cell regeneration and allows skincare treatments and products to absorb into the skin more effectively.

With exfoliated skin, you will no longer struggle with flaky patches and peach fuzz that trap the day’s debris and oil. Dermaplaning improves the skin’s texture and leaves you with a brighter, and more youthful look.

What are the Benefits of Dermaplaning?

  • Removes hair that traps dirt and oils
  • Provides deeper product penetration
  • A safe and effective way to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz
  • Good for all skin types
  • Instant results
  • No downtime
  • Reduces the appearance of acne scars
  • Minimizes fine lines

Am I a good candidate for dermaplaning?

Suitable for all skin types, dermaplaning is an excellent option for anyone with sun-damaged skin, fine lines or dry, dull skin. For women who are pregnant, or breastfeeding and want a deep exfoliation, dermaplaning is a safe alternative to chemical peels. Those who have excess peach fuzz also find dermaplaning to be a good choice to keep their skin smooth and healthy.

Can dermaplaning help with acne?

If you currently struggle with acne, dermaplaning is not recommended. Since acne begins at the hair follicle, any disturbance can stimulate additional breakouts. If you are looking to get rid of your acne, there might be better options suited for your needs. Let the professionals at SGK Plastic Surgery help you find a more effective approach to minimizing acne.

How long does the procedure take?

If you can get away on your lunch hour, you will have enough time for a dermaplaning treatment. Typically, you will be done in 30 minutes, and since there is no downtime or recovery needed, you’ll be free to return to your regular routine immediately.

What can I expect during a dermaplaning procedure?

The procedure is safe and pain-free. A trained and skilled aesthetician at SGK Plastic Surgery will gently exfoliate the skin by scraping off the top layer of dead skin cells. Dermaplaning will be done on your face, under the chin area and on the sides of your neck. There is no need to worry about hair returning darker or thicker as dermaplaning only targets vellus hair which will grow back the same size and color.
