What Can Be Treated With Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has been FDA-approved for skin resurfacing and can be used to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Unwanted facial hair
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dry skin texture
  • Eczema
  • Rough skin texture
  • Rosacea
  • Peach fuzz
  • Hyperpigmentation

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning treatment uses a handheld device called a dermatome to gently scrape away the outermost layer of damaged or aging skin. This brings the healthier underlying layer of skin to the surface, leaving you with a smoother, more youthful complexion.

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?

At MD Beauty Lab in Portland, you’ll have the option to add dermaplaning treatment to any other skin rejuvenation service for an additional $100.

What to Expect During Your Dermaplaning Treatment

A dermaplaning treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. Once you’ve had your consultation with one of our skin care specialists to discuss your goals, concerns, and medical history, your face will be gently cleansed to prepare it for the treatment.

You may also have a topical numbing cream applied to your skin. After the procedure, your provider may treat your skin with moisturizers or other products to minimize potential side effects. You’ll then be able to drive home or back to work immediately.

Does Dermaplaning Treatment Hurt?

No, you shouldn’t feel any pain during your dermaplaning treatment. You might experience a mild scratching sensation, but the topical anesthetic should keep you comfortable throughout the procedure.

Is There Any Downtime Needed After Dermaplaning Treatment?

No downtime is necessary after dermaplaning. You should be able to immediately resume your normal routine after the procedure.

To ensure that your skin heals properly, you should:

  • Avoid direct sun exposure for at least three days
  • Avoid extreme heat for at least three days
  • Wait at least one week to use facial scrubs or other exfoliators
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity for at least 24 hours

Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Practically anyone would like to exfoliate their facial skin to achieve a smoother, healthier complexion is a good candidate for dermaplaning. It is a safe treatment for nearly everyone, including pregnant women and people with sensitive skin.

If you’re experiencing dry or rough facial skin, you'll benefit from dermaplaning. It can also be a great option to treat other issues, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, and peach fuzz.

While dermaplaning is safe and effective for most people, we do not recommend the treatment if you’re currently experiencing an acne breakout or an active skin infection.

Common Questions

Does dermaplaning cause any side effects?

While dermaplaning is generally a very safe treatment, it can cause certain side effects in some patients. Possible side effects of dermaplaning include:

  • Skin redness
  • Acne breakouts
  • Irritation
  • Infection

How quickly will I start to see results?

You should notice results immediately after your dermaplaning treatment. Your face should start to feel smoother and softer right away, and the tone and texture should also become more even.

How often should I get dermaplaning treatments?

To keep your skin looking and feeling healthy, we typically recommend getting dermaplaning treatments once every three to four weeks.

What can’t be treated with dermaplaning?

While dermaplaning is an effective treatment for many cosmetic skin issues, it is not ideal for treating active acne breakouts, deep or raised acne scars, or skin laxity. For these issues, you will likely get better results from a different skin rejuvenation treatment, such as laser skin resurfacing or RF microneedling.
