Sometimes referred to as epidermal leveling or blading, dermaplaning is a medical skin treatment consisting of manual exfoliation of the outermost layers of the epidermis.
The treatment is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade, and the skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells and impurities. During this treatment, vellus hair, commonly known as “peach fuzz” is also removed, however, this hair will not grow back any thicker or darker than it was before treatment.
Dermaplaning may be done as an alternative to a chemical peel, or as the first step of a multi-level treatment which combines dermaplaning with a chemical peel, for deeper penetration of the peel.
Dermaplaning is a safe treatment when performed by a Medical Aesthetician. All skin types and colors can benefit from dermaplaning or blading. At Premier Plastic Surgery Center of New Jersey, our Medical Aestheticians are highly trained and experienced in performing Dermaplaning treatments.
This quick, non-surgical procedure is pain-free. There is no swelling or pain associated with the dermaplaning procedure!
Most people say it feels good and there is absolutely no downtime. The reason there is no pain with the dermaplaning procedure is because there are no chemicals used and the procedure is only taking off the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
