What is Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning provides physical exfoliation that uses a specialized sterile surgical scalpel to safely and gently remove the top layers of the skin. In addition to exfoliating the stratum corneum of dead skin that has accumulated over time, Dermaplaning also removes vellus hair, aka peach fuzz. Dermaplaning gives you a healthy glow and reveals fresh new skin. Your face will feel clean and look dramatically invigorated. Dermaplaning also helps for your skin care products to penetrate and absorb which improve their results.

Am I eligible?

Almost anyone can benefit from and utilize dermaplaning treatments apart from those with actively inflamed acne and coarse hairs. Outside of that anyone seeking vellus hair removal or exfoliation can add dermaplaning to their monthly routine. It can be a particularly great option for those who are unable to use certain products or other exfoliating treatments, including pregnant women or individuals suffering from sensitive skin.

What can I expect from treatment?

The treatment itself is a very gentle process. However, clients with sensitive skin may have short-term side effect as little redness or feel a little burning for the next few hours up to 48 hours after treatment. While there is also no social downtime, please protect your skin from the sun using a physical SPF of 30 or more.

At VanderVeer Center we like to combine this treatment with HydraFacial, chemical peels, and lasers treatments as this combination treatment brings out the best outcome. We also offer Dermaplaning as a standalone treatment that includes a Hydrojelly mask.
