This unique treatment exfoliates, smoothes, and softens the skin by removing vellus hair (also known as peach fuzz). In dermaplaning, a scalpel-like blade is used to lightly and gently scrape off the surface layers of the skin, resulting in healthier-looking skin and the appearance of reduced pores. There is no downtime or irritation with this treatment, and it can be completed by itself or in conjunction with a chemical peel or facial for optimal results. Schedule a consult today at our Phoenix, AZ office with our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. G. Robert Meger, to learn about all of our innovative skincare treatments.
The best candidates for dermaplaning:
- Have lighter skin tones since darker skin tones can become lightened or discolored
- Have fine lines and wrinkles, moderate acne scars, or uneven texture and tone
- Are not prone to skin rashes and skin irritations
- Have not had a recent chemical peel
- Do not have frequent fever blisters or cold sore flare-ups
- Desire youthful, better-looking skin

What to Expect
With dermaplaning, no numbing is needed since it’s a gentle, noninvasive procedure. There’s no pain associated with dermaplaning and the sensation is comparable to shaving. The face will be thoroughly cleansed and dried. A scalpel or other shaving tool (dermatome) is used to gently remove the dead skin cells, debris, and fine hair from the top layer of skin with short, feathering strokes. The entire face from the forehead to the chin will be treated in about 30 minutes. Dermaplaning can be performed about once a month for optimal results.
With dermaplaning, the results should appear right after treatment. Patients will notice more radiant skin with a more even tone and texture. The skin will look more youthful and rejuvenated, and will feel smoother since fine hair was removed. It’s recommended to get a series of treatments for the best results.
