Dermaplaning Benefits and Features

Exfoliation is a necessary part of skincare at home and in professional treatments.
Here at Amaira, one of our favorite add-ons to our medical facials is Dermaplaning.

  • Dermaplaning is an in-office procedure that will remove top layers of skin. This procedure assists with removing fine wrinkles, dead skin cells, and vellus hair.
  • Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, although if you are experiencing cystic acne, there are alternate methods of exfoliation we prefer to use.
  • This quick and simple service yields fantastic results with no down time.
    Pricing for this service is $75 to add on to an existing service or $150 by itself.
  • We love this treatment for people looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright, but results typically only last three to four weeks.

Now that we have you hooked, I bet you are wondering what this service entails and maybe thinking about the question we get most often: “Does it hurt?”

Dermaplaning is a medical treatment that uses a very sharp tool to skim dead skin cells and hair off the face. The blade is single use and disposable. We use only high-quality products to perform this service at Amaira.

It is a customer favorite for removing “peach fuzz,” the soft, short hairs on your face.
During this procedure, you won’t feel any pain. You may feel a slight tingling sensation during the treatment.

First, you’ll lie down on our incredibly comfortable facial table in a clean, medical esthetician room. After we have you tucked in, our providers will glide a manual dermaplaning tool over your skin at a 45-degree angle. This will continue for 15-20 minutes, as we gently turn over your skin cells.

After the treatment is finished, your esthetician will continue by hydrating your fresh skin with a series of serums and moisturizers. We will also always apply sunscreen to protect your face from the unforgiving Florida sun.

Here, at Amaira, we love to perform combination treatments. Your esthetician may suggest a chemical peel following your dermaplaning service if you are a candidate. Following a dermaplaning service, your skin has the ability to deeply absorb a chemical peel in a way it can’t at other times. A chemical peel can cost an additional $100 to $350 in our office.

This very popular service is a simple way to add the glow back into your skin care regimen. Dermaplaning allows your home care products to absorb more effectively in addition to increasing cell turnover. It is a staff favorite for good reason—the no down time and quick results make it a go-to for our staff and patients alike.

While this is a fantastic treatment to perform, there is a lot of misinformation available to patients, which can make dermaplaning sound less than ideal. These are a few of the most common myths we hear surrounding this treatment.

This is easily the most common myth we hear about dermaplaning.
Let us squash this rumor for you. It is not possible for hairs to grow back thicker simply because you were dermaplaned. The process creates a blunt edge on the hair where it is cut. The blunt edge of the hair can appear thicker compared to the tapered tip that was present before, but it is not larger. We are removing very fine hair called vellus hair from the skin. This vellus hair or “peach fuzz” is so thin that removing it will have no impact on the new hair growing in. Instead, removing the peach fuzz will instantly leave your skin feeling like glass and incredibly smooth.
This was touched on earlier, but we feel the need to emphasize the answer more, as we would be so sad for patients to lose out on the great benefits of this procedure due to this concern. Dermaplaning is practically painless for most people. Our estheticians are great at analyzing the skin, and in the event that you have very sensitive skin, they may suggest adding a specialized oil to the skin prior to starting. The service is just as effective as doing it dry but adds in an extra buffer to protect against friction and the feeling of tingling. Some irritation may occur afterward, but it is very light and typically subsides quickly. Compared to other methods of hair removal, we will take this one any day!
Dermaplaning is not a treatment that should be used on active acne. With that being said, it is known to help lessen the chances of breaking out by removing the dead skin on the surface of your face. Dermaplaning will help to prevent acne by sloughing away dirt and dead skin. Dermaplaning also makes it SO much easier for acne serums to penetrate further into your skin, which will also help to prevent future breakouts. Win,Win!
Let’s get real, 30 minutes isn’t too long to spend getting a procedure that will have results lasting up to four weeks. Given its amazing ability to give the glow back to the skin, I don’t know many people who turn it down. We all deserve to squeeze in some self-care time! We can always get you in for a quick lunch-time session (we will leave your eye makeup on by request) and have you leave with a gorgeous coating of SkinBetter SPF and SPF compact, which will allow you to pop right back into work.
