Dermaplaning is an exact, non-invasive aesthetic treatment available at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine that addresses the most common skin concerns including dullness, wrinkles, and even breakouts. It’s often the top layers of the skin that are the biggest troublemakers because that’s where dead skin cells cling. Ultimately, dermaplaning is a type of exfoliating treatment that goes far beyond what you can achieve safely at home. It should only be performed by a licensed esthetician or dermatologist because it involves scraping the top layer of the skin’s surface with a special surgical scalpel only available to these professionals.

Dermaplaning can sound a lot like simply shaving your face, but it’s done so with medical-grade instruments and by a professional. Dermaplaning does remove annoying peach fuzz, just like shaving your face would do, but it also does much more. Thanks to an expert-level treatment and the best tools, dermaplaning reveals baby-smooth skin without the need for damaging at-home exfoliants.

Who Can Get Dermaplaning?

Any adult of any age can benefit from dermaplaning. You can expect smoother skin, no peach fuzz, and skin that looks brighter and clearer. However, clients don’t just get dermaplaning for those key results. Since dead skin cells and peach fuzz are removed, topical products can penetrate the skin better. It’s common to pair dermaplaning with an in-office facial to maximize the benefits of a facial product.

Most clients consider dermaplaning a routine treatment, opting for monthly visits. Dead skin cells will continue to collect on the face and peach fuzz will grow back. Dermaplaning can help keep these troublesome issues to a minimum with regular maintenance visits. Plus, dermaplaning can be performed so quickly by a professional that it’s a favorite lunch hour treatment.

Your Dermaplaning Results

Dermaplaning can be used on all skin types and is particularly helpful in minimizing dry patches, fine lines, and sun damage. Those with very sensitive skin, or issues such as rosacea, should let their esthetician know in advance. Dermaplaning can irritate some skin and should not be performed on those with currently inflamed acne. However, dermaplaning can be very effective in preventing future breakouts by stopping clogged pores and hair follicles.
