kolleen dermaplaning

The dermaplane facial (dermaplaning) is a skin rejuvenation treatment that removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells.

What we tell our patients: a dermaplaning treatment leaves your skin gently exfoliated and fuzz-free so skincare products can be absorbed more and ready for beautiful makeup application.

Benefits of a dermaplane facial treatment for skin rejuvenation:

  • Removes peach fuzz
  • Instantly smooths skin
  • Gently exfoliates

Dermaplaning vs. Laser Hair Removal

These two treatments both address hair, however dermaplaning only temporarily removes the light (fuzzy) hair on the face. Laser hair removal permanently reduces and removes the pigmented hair anywhere on the face or body. 

Laser hair removal

  • face or body
  • permanent results
  • only treats pigmented hair 
  • helps folliculitis, razor burn, and ingrown hairs

Dermaplaning

  • face
  • temporary results
  • pigmented or light, gray hair
  • rejuvenates and exfoliates skin

Physical Exfoliation: Dermaplaning vs Microdermabrasion

Both a microdermabrasion and dermaplane are forms of mechanical exfoliation. They both remove dead skin cells. Dermaplaning uses a sterile blade, called a dermaplane, to remove the top layer of the skin and facial hair. Microdermabrasion uses either a diamond tip to buff or sand the surface of skin, or a spray of fine crystals to peel it away. Microdermabrasion does not remove facial hair but it does help with fine lines and acne scarring.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a noninvasive skin treatment that exfoliates dead skin and removes unwanted vellus hair, AKA peach fuzz. Think of dermaplaning as the cherry on top to injections, ipl, and of course your facial. Yes, we can dermaplane your face with nearly every treatment!

Where can I get a microdermabrasion and dermaplaning treatment?

Established in 2001, Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center offers microdermabrasion and dermaplaning as part of our Signature Facial in Petoskey, Naples and Traverse City. 

Dermaplaning can also be scheduled alongside Botox or dermal filler injections in Boca Grande, Florida.

How does a dermaplane work?

A surgical blade is used smoothly, gliding along the face lifting dead skin and hair resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. 

Does a dermaplane treatment hurt?

No, it is painless. In fact, many patients describe dermaplaning as relaxing. Countless patients say dermaplaning at Cosmetic Skin & Laser Center is the highlight of their visit.

How long do dermaplaning results last?

Dermaplaning results vary, but average results last 3-4 weeks. This is because of cell turnover. Cell turnover is the continual process of shedding dead skin cells and replacing them with new, healthy, young cells.

Does hair grow back thicker and darker after dermaplaning?

No! This is simply a myth. It’s true that your hair will grow back, but it will be the same hair as it was before. It is impossible for dermaplaning to alter your hair anatomy. 

What is oilplaning?

Oilplaning is an offshoot of dermaplaning. Oilplaning provides the same benefit and result as dermaplaning, technique is just different. Your esthetician will determine which option is best for your skin type. 

How much is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is offered as a chairside treatment for $85. Our chairside service allows patients to add skin rejuvenation to their injections. Dermaplaning can be added to facials and microneedling less expensively.

Should you dermaplane with a chemical peel?

Yes. When we dermaplane before a chemical peel, we eliminate a layer of dead skin/hair. This allows for the chemical peel to penetrate further boosting your result.

Can I get a dermaplaning and microdermabrasion together?

Yes. Patients who are sensitive to chemical peels may combine dermaplaning with microdermabrasion as a skin rejuvenation treatment.
