What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure offered by Prejuvenation Aesthetics. This non-invasive treatment involves the gentle exfoliation of the skin’s surface using a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hairs (peach fuzz).

By effectively exfoliating the skin, dermaplaning promotes a smoother, more radiant complexion while allowing skincare products to penetrate deeper. It’s a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin, leaving it looking refreshed and revitalized without downtime.

Your Dermaplaning Experience


During your consultation, our experienced professionals will assess your specific skin concerns and treatment goals. The consultation typically involves a discussion about your medical history, any previous skincare treatments, and your expectations. Our experts will explain the dermaplaning procedure, its benefits, and any potential risks. They may also perform a brief skin evaluation. This helps tailor the treatment to your unique needs.


During the dermaplaning treatment, you’ll relax comfortably while a trained aesthetician gently uses a surgical scalpel to exfoliate your skin. The procedure involves careful, precise strokes to remove dead skin cells and fine facial hair, resulting in a smoother, more radiant complexion. Dermaplaning is a painless and non-invasive process that typically takes around 30 minutes to complete. Afterward, your skin may feel smoother and more vibrant.

Side Effects

Dermaplaning is generally well-tolerated and involves few side effects. Some individuals may experience mild redness or sensitivity after the procedure, but this subsides within a few hours. It’s essential to avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen for a few days post-treatment to protect the newly exposed skin. There’s no downtime associated with dermaplaning, allowing you to resume your regular skincare routine and activities immediately.


You can typically notice the results of dermaplaning immediately after the treatment, as your skin will appear smoother and more radiant. These results can last for several weeks, with some clients enjoying the benefits for up to a month. The frequency of dermaplaning treatments can vary depending on your individual skin needs and goals, but many individuals choose to repeat the procedure every 4 to 6 weeks for sustained improvement in skin texture and tone.
