Dermaplane

 
 

Dermaplaning is a manual, non-invasive skin resurfacing procedure that uses a special surgical scalpel blade to remove the top layers of dead skin cells and fine vellus hair.

Q: What skin types can be dermaplaned?

A: Dermaplaning is a great option for most skin types, though it is best for patients with active acne breakouts to wait until it clears up before dermaplaning.

Q: Will my hair grow back thicker and/or faster after dermaplane?

A: No. Despite this common misconception, the hair will not grow back thicker.

Q: What is the difference between dermaplane and microdermabrasion?

A: Dermaplane and Microdermabrasion are both methods for manual exfoliation. Dermaplane exfoliates and gets rid of vellus hair (“peach fuzz”) with a sterile blade. Microdermabrasion simply exfoliates with a special applicator with an abrasive surface.
