How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning is a procedure in which the skin is manually exfoliated using a specially designed dermaplaning tool to remove dead skin buildup and fine hairs. During your appointment, your provider will get you cozy, cleanse your skin and then begin the dermaplaning treatment. While gently holding your skin tautly, your provider will glide the dermaplaning tool  in a smooth, upward motion using delicate strokes.  While it’s an excellent stand-alone treatment, you might also wish to consider getting dermaplaning as part of a customized skin care plan that includes one or more of the other procedures we offer.  One of our most frequently requested combination treatments is a Hydrafacial MD with Dermaplaning.

Proven Benefits of Dermaplaning

While dermaplaning has recently enjoyed a moment in the social media spotlight, this technique has been around for decades, establishing a long track record of safety and efficacy. 

In contrast to procedures like laser resurfacing and chemical peels, which might not be suitable for all skin tones and types, dermaplaning is an excellent exfoliating option for everyone. Because it is a mechanical exfoliation, it’s also a good choice for pregnant clients or those with sensitive skin who might have an adverse reaction to specific products or ingredients.


Let’s take the next step together on your aesthetic journey.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

As we mentioned earlier, almost everyone can safely rely on dermaplaning to improve their complexion. This treatment is ideal for you if you have a dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines, and superficial hyperpigmentation. 

Still, you may want to consider an alternative solution if you have: 

  • Active acne
  • An active rosacea flare-up
  • A tan or sunburn
  • An inflammatory skin condition like eczema or psoriasis 

At your private consultation, we will examine your skin and ask you questions about your medical health history  to help you decide if dermaplaning is right for you.

What to Expect During and After Dermaplaning

After cleansing your skin, your provider will use a dermaplaning tool to gently exfoliate your skin. 

After your treatment, your provider will apply a soothing serum, followed by sunscreen to protect your face. Since dermaplaning can make your skin more sensitive to damaging UV rays, you’ll need to be extra careful about using high-SPF sunblock and staying out of the sun after your procedure. We also suggest keeping your skin clean and makeup-free for up to 24 hours following your dermaplaning session.

Dermaplaning in Chicago FAQs

This is a very common misconception. No. It will not. This exfoliating procedure only removes soft, fine vellus hair, which regrows at a consistent rate, quality, and texture.

Because the life cycle of skin cells is approximately 28 days, you will probably notice your dermaplaning results last three to four weeks. Some of our clients are so pleased with their improved appearance that they make dermaplaning part of their regular skin care routine by scheduling monthly touch-up appointments.

We recommend cleansing and moisturizing your skin every morning and evening with quality, professional grade products that are compatible with your skin type. To avoid reversing the effects of your dermaplaning treatment, never leave home without applying sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and limit sun exposure.
