Dermaplaning is a physical exfoliation treatment combined with using sterile surgical blade to gently remove the vellus hair (peach fuzz) and 2-3 weeks of dead skin cells from your face.

Dermaplaning brightens and smooths the skin while minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scarring. It is also a great way to prep the skin for chemical peel treatments because the blade removes the fine hair, dead skin, and opens up your pores, helping the skin on your face better absorb the chemical peel treatment.
A Dermaplaning treatment also helps with your at home face skincare routine; allowing cleansers, moisturizers, toners, and serums to more effectively penetrate your skin and create a smooth canvas for your makeup application.
This service is great for all skin types but clients with active acne breakouts or cold sores should wait until lesions are healed.

How often can you do dermaplaning?
Chemical peels are beneficial for most skin types and concerns. They brighten and even the skin tone, improve texture, smooth fine lines and wrinkles, help clear breakouts, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and strengthen the skin.
I carry the brands, PCA Skin modified Jessner peels and blended TCA peels. Traditional Jessner’s peels contain lactic acid, salicylic acid, and resorcinol which helps smooth fine lines and clear acne.
PCA Skin was the first company to develop and market the modified Jessner’s peel, by adding kojic acid and hydroquinone, which provides a more comfortable treatment and helps brighten the skin. These peels are especially beneficial for clients with oily skin.
TCA peels contain 6% to 10% of trichloroacetic acid – a peeling agent used to remove fine lines, wrinkles and acne scarring. TCA is blended with other beneficial acids to treat aging skin, hyperpigmentation and acne. These peels are especially beneficial for clients with dry skin.
After treatment your skin may begin to flake after 2-3 days and will typically subside after the 5th day, but don’t be alarmed. When your skin peels after a treatment, it is shedding dead or damaged skin cells and revealing the new, healthy skin cells on the surface. However, not everyone will peel, which doesn’t mean the treatment was ineffective, it just means that the exfoliation is happening on a cellular level. The frequency of treatment can vary slightly, depending on skin type and concerns but is recommended once a month for the most noticeable results.
Pre and Post Chemical Peel Care
Before a Chemical Peel
- Discontinue use of tanning beds two weeks prior to chemical peel appointment.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure for 10 days prior to your appointment.
- It’s recommended to delay the use of the prescriptions: Retin-A, Renova, Differin, Tazorac, and high percent AHA & BHA products for five days before the chemical peel treatment. (These medications thin your skin and make your skin more sensitive. Please consult your physician before stopping any medications.)

- Stay cool. (No hot tubs, saunas, or intense workouts.)
- No loofahs or mechanical exfoliation for at least two days.
- Avoid using makeup for 24 hours.

- Avoid direct sun exposure for 24 hours.
- Do not use tanning beds for at least two weeks.
