Dermaplaning gently exfoliates the top layer of damaged skin cells, scraping away debris, dirt, makeup, oil and buildup that accumulates daily through our stressful, urban lives. Acne scarring, blemishes, uneven skin tone, wrinkles and fine lines are all beautifully improved, revealing a radiant, luminous glow that telegraphs youthfulness.

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is one of the best ways to pamper yourself after a long week at work. With no downtime, this gentle, non-invasive skin illumination tool is perfect for refining your complexion and removing fine vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) to expose a clearer, softer countenance.

One of our highly trained Palo Alto aestheticians will use a sterilized scalpel to scrape away dead skin cells, which not only improves your appearance, but also enhances your skin’s ability to absorb vitamins and nutrients.

Am I a good candidate for dermaplaing?

Dermaplaing is a simple, non-invasive procedure that can be performed in a short session with no downtime, therefore it is excellent for anyone with a busy schedule who still desires to improve their skin.

There are no acids, lasers or chemicals involved with dermaplaning, so it is gentle enough for pregnant women or those who are nursing. Even patients with sensitive skin can benefit from dermaplaning. If you have active acne breakouts or suffer from psoriasis, our aestheticians may suggest an alternative treatment that is better suited to your needs.

What will recovery entail?

Recovering from dermaplaning is very quick and painless. Once you are done with your session, your aesthetician will apply a moisturizer and a medical-grade sunscreen to protect your skin as you go about your day. You will be able to then return instantly to work, school or pleasure. We will follow up with you to ensure your results are on track.

What about the cost?

Dermplaning costs will depend on the extent of your treatment and on whether it is combined with any other procedures. We will provide you with a custom quote once you have undergone your individual skin analysis at your Palo Alto consultation.

FAQs about dermaplaning

How does it work?

Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive skin-resurfacing procedure with an added benefit of removing vellus hair. A special surgical blade is used to smooth and refinish the epidermis through very fine, controlled scraping.

What can I expect during the treatment?

After a thorough cleansing, the aesthetician will hold an area of your skin taut while using short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and vellus hair. This is repeated over the entire face to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion.

What are the results?

Dermaplaning leaves your skin looking radiant with a more even skin tone and a smoother texture. All your peach fuzz will be gone. First-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before!

Is it safe?

Dermaplaning is a painless procedure that can be compared to shaving your legs. There are minimal to no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink.
