Dermaplaning is a simple and safe procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a blade and a delicate touch, we skim the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes. No pain, no cutting, no bleeding. This is a great treatment for our Irvine dermaplaning patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but don’t want or aren’t allowed to use chemicals that could be absorbed into the bloodstream and affect their unborn child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the skin. **Many women with Middle Eastern or Spanish genes have darker facial hair they want to remove without the risks of chemicals or laser. Hair will NOT grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. As long as the hair is superficial vellus hair, it will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
Dermaplaning is sometimes erroneously thought to be similar to dermabrasion. It’s NOTHING like dermabrasion. Dermabrasion is a medical procedure in which the skin is abraded down to the dermis using a wire brush. There are many complications associated with dermabrasion, including infections and scarring, which is why it is not commonly used anymore. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is a simple shaving of the epidermis.

Liz, one of our ultra-talented RNs, has been helping women of all ages gain a new appreciation for silky skin. “It can be a little addictive,” she says. “Once you see how porcelain-like your skin can appear, it’s hard to give it up.”
If you have pores that distress you or skin that’s prone to breakouts, or you feel a little extra exfoliation is in order, top off with an application of salicylic acid to refine your new baby-smooth skin even more. Zero downtime, no side effects other than a little pinkness. Treatments take about 30 minutes and is totally painless. You can repeat treatments every 21 days. All that new skin will be sensitive, so do use sunscreen.
Although dermaplaning is an “oh my gosh, this is great” experience, if the idea of a scalpel is too much, then move over to SilkPeel for skin that literally feels like silk afterward. It’s addicting on its own!
