Dermaplaning is a safe, painless and incredibly effective way to exfoliate dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. This non-invasive skincare treatment abrades the surface of the skin without the use of chemicals or harsh exfoliates, making it ideal for those with sensitive skin or women who are pregnant or nursing. During your initial consultation at our Scottsdale plastic surgery center we can assess your needs and help you decide if dermaplaning is suitable for your goals.
Removing dead skin and fine hairs from the face serves the dual purpose of producing a more youthful and radiant glow, and allowing skincare products to penetrate into deeper layers of the dermis. By gently scraping vellus hairs from the face, dirt and oil trapped in the follicles are also removed, further enhancing skin quality and helping reduce breakouts and other unsightly conditions.
Exfoliating through dermaplaning can be highly beneficial for patients with:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Mild acne scarring
- Superficial hyperpigmentation
- Rough, dry or flaky skin
