There are a variety of techniques used for skin exfoliation, but none quite like dermaplaning. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers dermaplaning for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a technique used for exfoliation that involves using a scalpel to scrape off the topmost layer of skin. This is particularly effective at removing dead skin cells and eliminating hairs on the face.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

Men and women in Richmond love dermaplaning because it:

  • Is quick and painless
  • Smooths and cleanses the skin through exfoliation
  • Removes peach fuzz on the face
  • Requires no downtime

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Dermaplaning?

  • The ideal candidate for dermaplaning does not have acne and wants:
  • To smooth the facial skin
  • To exfoliate dead skin cells
  • To prepare for more intrusive facial procedures


What Do I Need to Do Before Having Dermaplaning?

Schedule a consultation with one of our estheticians to find out if dermaplaning is the best option for you.

What Should I Expect During My Dermaplaning Treatment?

Dermaplaning is performed using a 10 gauge scalpel and can be compared to the feeling of shaving. It is simply scraped against the skin to remove dead skin cells and hair, lasting about 30 minutes total.

Will I Have Scars After Getting Dermaplaning?

You will not have scars as a result of your dermaplaning treatment.

When Will I See the Results?

You will see results instantly after the treatment, and it can be repeated at approximately one-month intervals.

How Long Will the Results of Dermaplaning Last?

Dermaplaning removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so the results will last until that skin reaccumulates. After this time, you can schedule another appointment.
