For people looking for visible skin rejuvenation in a quick, easy treatment, dermaplaning takes about half an hour and leaves your skin glowing and smooth. Regular dermaplaning sessions can keep these results indefinitely.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning uses a sharp blade at an angle to remove dull, lifeless skin cells. It also removes vellus hair on the face, known as “peach fuzz.” With this dead layer of skin removed, you will immediately see brighter, smoother-looking skin emerge from beneath. Dermaplaning causes no discomfort, and some people consider it relaxing. Despite using a blade, dermaplaning is incredibly comfortable. 

During repeated sessions, dermaplaning encourages the skin to shed dead cells faster and increases cellular turnover, prompting more healthy new skin cells to come to the surface. Another benefit of dermaplaning is that this increased cellular turnover will gradually lift away the layers of skin affected by hyperpigmentation, acne scars, or lines and wrinkles. 

How Much is Dermaplaning?

According to Aedit, dermaplaning costs across the country range from $75 to $250. Factors affecting this cost include your location and the provider’s level of skill and experience. At Krauss Dermatology, our experienced, licensed aesthetician provides this treatment. While you may see ads for DIY dermaplaning devices, they are much less sharp than the blade used by our licensed aesthetician, who has the skill to use this blade precisely and safely. 

What Results Will I See With Dermaplaning?

Unlike many other treatments, dermaplaning delivers results you can see immediately. These include smoother, more even-toned skin as well as improvement in acne scars, lines, and wrinkles. The newly revealed layer of skin has a healthy glow that will last about two to three weeks.

Why Get Dermaplaning With a Micropeel?

At Krauss Dermatology, we offer dermaplaning in combination with a micropeel. More effective than either treatment alone, these two complementary treatments give you even more radiant skin. The gentle peel, perfect for almost anyone, unclogs pores and refreshes the skin without any tingling or redness. Used with dermaplaning, it can reveal even brighter skin and treat healthy new skin with a dose of hydration and anti-inflammatory protection. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Since dermaplaning causes no damage to the skin, most people make good candidates. Those with an active acne breakout or other active skin condition may not make good candidates since dermaplaning could irritate these conditions. 

Is There Any Downtime With Dermaplaning?

You can resume all of your usual activities immediately. Your skin may look pink for a day or two, but you should feel no discomfort. You must use quality sunscreen and avoid sun exposure in order to protect your newly revealed skin, which is sensitive to sun damage.
