Summit Dermatology offers dermaplaning treatments for patients looking to improve the tone and texture of their skin. Dermaplaning is a quick, manual exfoliation treatment that can reduce the appearance of fine lines, improve the appearance of acne scarring, and reduce the appearance of enlarged pores.
What is dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a non-invasive manual exfoliation treatment that can be used to improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, reduce the appearance of acne scarring, and improve the appearance of fine lines. This exfoliating treatment removes dead skin cells, dirt, oil, and the fine vellus hair, or peach fuzz, from the surface of the skin to reveal brighter, smoother skin.
Regular dermaplaning treatments can:
· Reduce the appearance of acne scarring
· Improve the appearance of fine lines
· Improve the overall tone and texture of the skin
· Temporarily remove “peach fuzz”
· Helps unblock blackheads
· Reduces the appearance of enlarged pores
What can I expect during a treatment?
During a treatment session, we will gently scrape a sterilized surgical scalpel across the surface of your skin to remove the top layer of skin, which is predominantly comprised of dead skin cells, dirt, and oils. This manual exfoliation is performed on each area of the face, excluding the nose and the neck, until the skin has been thoroughly exfoliated. Dermaplaning is a very gentle and relaxing treatment with no pain or discomfort associated with it, the sensations you may experience during a treatment session can best be compared to shaving.
Treatment sessions typically last for approximately 30 minutes and have no downtime associated with them. Patients are able to immediately apply makeup following a treatment session and return to their normal routines. Dermaplaning treatments can be performed every three to four weeks. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Am I a candidate?
Dermaplaning is an ideal treatment for men and women interested in improving the tone and texture of their skin. This aesthetic treatment is safe for patients with most skin types, including sensitive skin and skin with rosacea. We do not recommend dermaplaning treatments for patients with excessively oily skin or acne prone skin.

Dermaplaning is often combined with chemical peel’s and HydraFacial’s, especially for patients who are beginning a new skin care regimen. It can also help prepare the skin for more invasive procedures, such as laser treatments.
