If skin treatments like facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you want, but you want to avoid lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is a popular cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation technique that smoothes the surface of your skin by removing dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a softer, more radiant complexion. Sometimes known as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a special tool and careful scraping techniques. Our team is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Forever Slender Med Spa in Wayland, MA. Dermaplaning is becoming more popular these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smoother, younger-looking skin quickly and efficiently.

Dermaplaning procedures are considered relatively safe and effective for most skin types and tones. Patients suffering from severe acne should discuss the benefits and risks in detail beforehand. The best candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and microdermabrasion
- Don't have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Don't have sensitive skin
- Have superficial hyperpigmentation
Dermaplane treatments can be performed in our office as an outpatient procedure. After the skin is cleaned, the procedure will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the skin with a facial blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of the skin until the needed areas have been evenly treated. The procedure time will vary depending on whether a portion or the entire face is being treated. During your consultation, we will let you know what to expect during the dermaplaning process.
What to Expect
In the hours following your dermaplaning session, you may find your face to be a little red. These are normal side effects that will begin to subside in a matter of days. It is common for peeling to occur as the skin heals. But it is important not to pick at them — instead you should allow the skin to fall off naturally. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be very sensitive in the weeks after the treatment. Expect to see results quickly since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin instantaneously. In the interest of protecting your newly revealed skin, the technician will discuss a recommended skincare routine with you, including the regular application of sunscreen.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does dermaplaning cost?
The cost of your dermaplaning session will include facility fees, your treatment plan, and the number of sessions needed to attain your goals. If any other skin care procedure is being combined in your treatment plan, that will be considered as well. After all of these factors have been determined, our team will estimate your treatment cost. Our practice often offers monthly specials so be sure to ask about this during your consultation.
Does it hurt?
No. Typically, most patients do not experience any pain or discomfort during a dermaplaning treatment as this is a noninvasive procedure that focuses on the very top layer of skin. The purpose of the treatment is to gently scrape away old or damaged skin cells and "peach fuzz" hair for smoother, healthier skin. The results will provide a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance.
Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you have an excess amount of "peach fuzz" or have tired-looking skin, then this is a great treatment option as it is simple, affordable, noninvasive, and does not require any downtime like a chemical peel. Dermaplaning removes old damaged skin and vellus hair for a gorgeous profile. This process also helps to remove trapped dirt and bacteria in addition to promoting collagen and elastin fibers for a glowing complexion.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
No. Contrary to the popular myth that hair will grow back thicker when shaved, dermaplaning does not interfere in the natural hair production process.
How often should I get dermaplaning?
We usually recommend that you receive a dermaplaning treatment once a month or every 4 – 6 weeks to maintain optimal results. Talk to your aesthetician to determine when they think it's best for you to return for follow-up treatments.
