Dermaplaning brightens and smooths skin by removing dead skin cells from the skin’s surface with the careful use of an exfoliating blade.
Dermaplaning is a safe and effective “lunch break” procedure in which a scalpel is used to remove dull, dead skin and hair from the face to reveal smoother, brighter skin beneath. It is a temporary treatment for dull skin, dry skin, sun damage, fine lines, and acne scars. Dermaplaning may also be used in combination with other facial rejuvenating treatments such as a mask or chemical peel.
The deep exfoliation achieved through Dermaplaning allows for the deep penetration of moisturizers of chemicals into the skin, amplifying treatment results. While the concept of Dermaplaning has existed for centuries, it has recently gained popularity as a result of celebrity and social media influencer recommendations. Not only does Dermaplaning make the skin appear younger, smoother, and brighter, it removes debris which can cause makeup to appear uneven, cakey, or flat. Many professional makeup artists recommend Dermaplaning as a method for creating an ideal canvas for beautiful makeup application.
When you arrive for your Beverly Hills Dermaplaning treatment, you will receive anesthesia (typically topical, or local) combined with an oral sedative. Then an exfoliating blade will be used to carefully removed dead cells from the skin’s surface. This usually takes 20 to 30 minutes, and results are immediate. A soothing solution and sunscreen will be applied to the treatment area before you leave. There is no downtime required with Dermaplaning.

Dermaplaning is similar to dermabrasion but is considered a more intensive procedure. Instead of a brush a very fine razor-like tool called a dermatome is used to remove dead skin from the layer of the skin known as the epidermis. It is considered non-invasive, it is most like a surgical procedure and must be cared for afterwards.
Side effects are extremely minimal with Dermaplaning, consisting of redness or slight discoloration. Rarely, infection or scarring may occur. Scars may be treated with a steroid shot.
Dermaplaning may exacerbate existing dermatological conditions such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, or sunburn.
