Enhance Your Skin with Dermaplaning in Beverly Hills

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive exfoliation treatment that uses a surgical blade to gently remove damaged skin cells, dirt, and vellus hair from the skin’s surface. The process is comfortable, requires no downtime, and the skin appears smoother and more radiant immediately following treatment.

Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Sheila Nazarian, dedicates her practice to delivering high-quality customized treatment based on each patient's skin care needs. While Dermaplaning is effective as a stand-alone procedure, we may recommend combination therapy with other aesthetic options like Microneedling to boost results. Dermaplaning is also one step in our Diamond Glow accelerated exfoliating treatment, used to prevent breakouts after the procedure.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning eliminates the outermost layer of dead skin cells, dirt, and vellus hair - also known as peach fuzz. This popular skin rejuvenation treatment gently moves a sterile blade similar to a surgical scalpel across the skin’s surface. The process removes external debris that can dull your skin tone.

Exfoliation of the outermost layer also stimulates the production of new cells to produce a more vibrant complexion. Topical products are more easily absorbed into the skin after a Dermaplaning treatment, increasing efficacy. Makeup goes on smoothly for a more even finish.

  • Your treatment will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Aftercare & Recovery

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

You may be a good candidate for a Dermaplaning treatment if your goal is to refresh your skin and even out the tone and texture. Dermaplaning is also beneficial for patients who want to get the most out of their topical skin care products. This procedure allows ingredients to penetrate more effectively.

Dermaplaning is safe for nearly any skin type and tone but may not be appropriate for patients with active skin conditions such as cystic acne, eczema, or psoriasis. We will assess your skin to determine whether Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment for you.

Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that uses a surgical-grade scalpel to remove the outermost layer of skin cells, dirt, and vellus hair. It produces smoother skin and a radiant glow without anesthesia or downtime.

There are minimal drawbacks to dermaplaning. Risks might include scarring and infection, which rarely occur with an experienced provider. Regular treatments are needed to maintain positive results.

While the processes are similar, Dermaplaning is a safer treatment with numerous advantages over shaving. In addition to removing vellus hair from the face, Dermaplaning removes the outermost skin cells to produce a softer, smoother, more radiant complexion.

The vellus hair removed during Dermaplaning will eventually grow back. You can maintain your smooth results with Dermaplaning treatments every 3-4 weeks.

When performed correctly, it is a comfortable procedure. Patients often compare it to shaving their legs. There are few side effects after Dermaplaning, and patients can return to regular activities immediately.

Dermaplaning offers numerous benefits, including smoother skin, a more radiant skin tone, and even makeup application. Topical products also absorb into dermal tissue more efficiently after the procedure. Cons might include less dramatic results and the need to repeat treatments to maintain improvement.
