Want to hit “refresh” on your skin and reveal your glow? Dermaplaning is a minimally invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that shaves away the dead cells and peach fuzz on the top layers of your skin to even out your skin tone and texture and minimize fine lines. Most patients seek dermaplaning to improve the skin on their face, although it can be done anywhere on your body.
How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning gets rid of dead skin cells at the top layer of your skin. It’s a quick and painless treatment that requires no anesthesia and has no downtime afterward. Most patients notice an overall improvement in their skin immediately after a treatment and share that their skincare and makeup regimens apply much easier.
When you visit LJC for a dermaplaning treatment, one of our experienced providers will remove any excess oil before gently stretching your skin and sliding a scalpel over the surface to scrape away dead skin cells and unwanted hair.
Can dermaplaning be combined with other treatments?
Many patients are happy with the results they get from dermaplaning, but we recommend it as an add-on to another facial rejuvenation treatment for a next-level glow. It can be combined with chemical peels and facials for more dramatic improvements in smoothness, brightness, and tone.
What results can I expect from dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning can help diminish the appearance sun damage, wrinkles, and other skin concerns, revealing new, undamaged, younger-looking skin. Some improvements you should see in your skin after dermaplaning include:
- A brighter and more even skin tone
- Smoother texture
- Less hair
- Less breakouts (by removing the vellus hair, it reduces the accumulation of acne-causing bacteria)
- Makeup may go on smoother and skincare products may penetrate deeper

- Peach fuzz
- Dull skin
- Scaly skin patches
- Sun damaged skin
Does dermaplaning make hair grow back thicker?
There’s an age-old myth that floats around that dermaplaning and shaving certain parts of the body makes hair grow back darker and thicker, but don’t stress about it. It’s a totally false misconception, and your hair will grow back normally.
How long do dermaplaning results last?
Your skin should be glowing practically right away, and these radiant results should last up to six weeks. Depending on your budget and schedule, you can maintain these results best by getting treatments every 4-6 weeks.
