Are you looking to exfoliate your skin to smooth its surface and improve its appearance? The professional dermaplaning facial treatments offered at Uptown Medical Aesthetics will leave your skin exfoliated, feeling refreshed, and looking healthier than ever before. Our licensed aestheticians are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in performing dermaplaning treatments, and they’re eager to address the concerns you have about your skin.


What Does a Dermaplaning Procedure Involve?

Dermaplaning uses a surgical blade to not only exfoliate the skin but also remove fine vellus hairs, commonly known as “peach fuzz.” Dermaplaning is a simple, safe procedure for exfoliation of the epidermis or your top layer of skin. Additional benefits of dermaplaning include old skin removal, smoothing the skin’s surface, and increasing the ability of your skincare products to penetrate deeply. Dermaplaning facial treatment can help improve the appearance of:

  • Photodamaged skin
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Acne scarring
  • Age spots
  • And more!

After you arrive for your dermaplaning facial treatment appointment, you’ll fill out a brief medical history, which your aesthetician evaluates. Your skin will be cleansed to remove makeup and any debris. Your dermaplaning treatment will be performed, and then we will apply moisturizer and sunblock to your skin.

Who Can Perform Dermaplaning?

A licensed aesthetician who has been professionally trained can perform dermaplaning facial treatments.

Once the Vellus Hair is Removed, Will It Grow Back Thicker?

No, it’s physiologically impossible for your vellus hair to grow back thicker. Your soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly, usually in about four weeks, but it doesn’t alter or get thicker once it’s removed. Dermaplaning treatments, laser therapy, or any other hair removal services won’t alter the type of hair grown in any given area of your body.

Can Dermaplaning Cause Your Skin to Peel?

Nicks or small cuts in your skin are possible during the process but only happen rarely and can cause slight bleeding like a paper cut. It’s crucial to have a licensed aesthetician who is properly trained to perform your dermaplaning facial treatment in a medical spa.

What Areas Can Be Treated with Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning treatments are performed on the face only. The eyelids, nose, and chest should always be avoided.

Can Dermaplaning Be Performed with a Chemical Peel?

Yes, dermaplaning is an excellent way to prep the skin for a chemical peel treatment!

Does the Skin Actually Peel from Dermaplaning?

No. When Dermaplaning treatments are performed to prep the skin for a chemical peel, the visible exfoliation the client sees will be a result of the peel used in the treatment.

Who Can Be Treated?

Patients will all skin types, even the most sensitive skin types, such as clients with Rosacea, can benefit from dermaplaning facial treatments. Men can receive dermaplaning treatments in non-beard areas only.

Is There Any Downtime After Dermaplaning?

One of the benefits of our dermaplaning facial treatments is there’s no downtime involved! The skin has an instant healthy glow, feels incredibly soft, and makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish. This procedure is a must for any important event.

How Often Can This Procedure Be Performed?

Dermaplaning treatments can be performed every three to four weeks for proper skin exfoliation and maintenance. For acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and skin rejuvenation purposes, the treatments may be performed at a closer interval.
