Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin treatment that involves the use of a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. While most individuals can benefit from this treatment, there are some factors that can make someone a particularly good candidate for dermaplaning. These include individuals with dull, dry, or rough skin texture, those with fine lines and wrinkles, and those with sun-damaged skin. Dermaplaning is also a great option for individuals with acne-prone skin or those with congested pores, as the removal of dead skin cells and vellus hair can help prevent the buildup of oils and bacteria. Patients with sensitive skin should discuss their options with their esthetician, as dermaplaning may not be suitable for their skin type. Overall, individuals seeking to improve the texture and tone of their skin, as well as those looking for a non-invasive alternative to more aggressive skin treatments, can benefit from dermaplaning.


Dermaplaning is a skin treatment performed by a licensed esthetician that involves the use of a surgical scalpel to gently remove dead skin cells and vellus hair from the face. The treatment begins with a consultation to assess the client's skin type and concerns. The esthetician then cleanses the client's face and applies a gentle, yet effective exfoliating solution to remove any remaining debris or oils from the skin. Next, the esthetician uses a sterile surgical scalpel at a 45-degree angle to carefully scrape the surface of the skin in gentle, upward motions. This process effectively removes the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. The procedure typically takes between 30-45 minutes, and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. After the treatment, a soothing serum and moisturizer are applied to the skin to minimize any potential redness or irritation. The client is then given aftercare instructions to follow at home to ensure the best possible results from the treatment.


The recovery process following a dermaplaning treatment is typically minimal, and most clients can resume their regular activities immediately after the treatment. However, it is normal to experience mild redness or sensitivity in the treated area for a few hours following the treatment. It is also common for the skin to feel slightly dry or tight for a few days after the treatment. The esthetician may recommend using a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer to help soothe the skin and maintain hydration. It is essential to avoid sun exposure immediately after the treatment, and to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect the skin. It is also recommended to avoid harsh exfoliants, scrubs, or treatments for at least a week after the treatment, to allow the skin to fully heal. Overall, the recovery process from dermaplaning is minimal, and the results of the treatment can typically be seen immediately, with the skin appearing smoother, brighter, and more radiant.

Dermaplaning RESULTS

After a single dermaplaning treatment, patients can expect to see an immediate improvement in the texture and tone of their skin. The treatment removes the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, leaving the skin feeling smoother, brighter, and more radiant.

Depending on the patient's individual goals and concerns, multiple treatments may be recommended to achieve the best possible results. Generally, a series of 3-6 treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended to maintain the benefits of the treatment. Patients may notice continued improvement in the appearance of their skin for several weeks following the treatment, as the skin continues to regenerate and renew itself. Overall, dermaplaning is an effective and non-invasive treatment option for patients seeking to improve the overall health and appearance of their skin.


  • I came in for a consultation and the staff was super welcoming! I wasn’t even through the front glass doors yet before I was greeted with a warm smile! Dr. Ward and the staff made me feel welcomed and appreciated. My nose is my biggest insecurity and Dr. Ward was patient and answered all of my questions and concerns. He was realistic about what to expect and didn’t force what he thought was a “better look” on me. He really listened and that’s super important to me. Thank you to everyone and Dr. Ward!
