Dermaplaning, is a safe and simple skin rejuvenation treatment intended to exfoliate the epidermis and remove vellus hairs (peach fuzz), leaving the skin smoother and looking healthier. This exfoliation allows for your skincare products to penetrate more readily into the deeper layers. Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for those with excess vellus hair because this hair often causes dirt and oil to clog in the follicles. Removing this hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.
This is the perfect add on for many aesthetic procedures including laser, microneedling, superficial chemical peels and facials. Dermaplaning is also a prime exfoliation treatment option for those who are pregnant or nursing and not allowed to use chemical peeling agents. Patients often wonder if their hair will grow back thicker and darker after dermaplaning. This is simply a myth. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will continue to grow back at the same rate and texture as it did prior to treatment.
A customized dermaplane based on the patients needs, including extractions, a purifying mask, light chemical peel, hydration treatment, followed by Revision professional products.
Who can benefit from dermaplaning?
This treatment is perfect for anyone with rough, uneven, dry and oily skin, superficial hyperpigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, mild scarring and sensitive skin. This is a great alternative to microdermabrasion and those with visible facial capillaries, rosacea, redness and those sensitive to facial waxing.
Microneedling, also known as collagen induction therapy, mimics the effects of fractional laser by generating micro-punctures in the skin. This controlled wound-healing response in the deep layers of the skin stimulates the collagen and results in a smoother, more youthful appearance. The micro punctures create a controlled injury underneath the surface of the skin, which then sends a “wake up call” to the collagen to start producing more.
The skin plumps and thickens in response to this. Microneedling aims to improve mild to moderate acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, rough skin texture, decreases pore size, and tightens lax skin.
What is a microneedling treatment?
The skincare provider holds a pen-like device with a sterile, disposable tip housing tiny needles used to pierce the skin. Most people experience redness and slight swelling post-treatment that can last up to 48 hours. This is suitable for all skin types and colors, and there is no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.

Dermaplane with Microneedling
Combining these two treatments will give you the most desirable outcome. Together these procedures are ideal to treat uneven skin tone and texture, large pores, fine lines, unwanted facial hair, and acne scars. Dermaplaning before Micro-needling allows for topical products to penetrate significantly deeper into the skin layers, allowing the patient to achieve the most desirable outcome.
For those who would like to see the elimination of acne, fine lines, wrinkles, melasma and sun damage or uneven skin pigmentation, a chemical peel can be a quick answer. Chemical facial peel can remove the damaged layers of skin through exfoliation. There are many different strengths of chemical peels, depending on the patients’ need, and desired down time.
Chemical peels are the perfect non-invasive way to reveal a brighter, more rejuvenated complexion. They are also used quite often in conjunction with dermaplaning, resulting in softer, exfoliated, restored skin that looks and feels great.
If you have moderate sun spots, wrinkles or irregularities, acne etc., contact us to schedule a consultation. During the consultation process, you will learn more about the benefits of chemical peels and if you are in fact a candidate for this procedure. Also, we can tailor the chemical peels strength in order to accomplish the needs of the patient.
