What to Expect After Dermaplaning

Are you struggling with acne scars, frustrating facial hairs, or dullness? Dermaplaning is a simple but effective way to smooth and brighten your skin. In the hands of a skilled provider, this treatment removes “peach fuzz,” unclogs pores, and removes up to two weeks of dead skin cells and debris. 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a skin-rejuvenating facial treatment that addresses textural concerns and signs of aging. It uses a sterile blade to remove hair and layers of dead and damaged skin. As a result, textural issues like acne scars and fine lines become smoother, and fresh new skin cells replace dull or damaged ones. Removing these layers of dead skin cells keeps pores clear, reducing acne without medications or side effects.

How Does a Dermaplaning Facial Work?

During dermaplaning, your provider uses a 10-gauge sterile blade called a dermatome to remove unwanted peach fuzz and dead skin cells. Your Manhattan Aesthetics providers have the experience and training to perform dermaplaning safely and precisely. The dermatome is moved at an angle over your skin, effectively removing hairs and layers of dulling debris. You will not require any numbing. Treatment usually takes about 20 minutes. 

What to Expect After Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a no-downtime treatment that fits into any busy schedule. Most people experience an immediate healthy glow with no redness. You can return to your usual activities without delay, including applying makeup. You will notice that your skin looks smoother, and makeup applies more evenly. We strongly recommend a quality sunscreen to protect your fresh new skin from damage. 

Results you will see after dermaplaning include:

  • Reduced fine lines
  • Less visible acne scars
  • Brighter skin tone
  • More even skin texture
  • Fewer acne breakouts
  • Elimination of peach fuzz


You can prolong your dermaplaning results using dermatologist-approved skincare products promoting cellular turnover and skin rejuvenation. Dermaplaning makes your skin more prepared to absorb the full benefits of these treatments.

How Often Should I Have Dermaplaning?

Your Manhattan Aesthetics provider will work with you to develop a dermaplaning schedule. This treatment removes approximately two weeks’ worth of dead skin cells and debris. Most people benefit from dermaplaning once a month to maintain a healthy glow. Regular dermaplaning keeps you free of peach fuzz and lets you show off brighter skin. Each person’s skin goes through its life cycle at a different rate, so your needs may differ. 


Dermaplaning can also be combined with chemical peels to achieve more dramatic results and treat a wider range of skin concerns. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is safe and effective for nearly everyone. People of any age can benefit. Unlike light-based rejuvenating treatments, dermaplaning works safely on all skin types and tones. Good candidates should have achievable goals. Candidates should not have treatment if they have an active skin condition or infection in the treatment area.
