Dermaplaning 101

Dermaplaning in Long Island, NY, is a skin treatment that employs an exfoliating blade to skim dead skin cells and hair from your face. In some places, it can also be called microplaning or blading. Dermaplaning aims to make the surface of your face smooth and radiant by removing the top layer of skin. This treatment removes deep scarring from acne and some of the uneven pockmarks on your skin. It is also used to remove “peach fuzz,” the short, soft hairs on your face.

Dermaplaning can be used by people with any skin type and anyone with:

  • Dull Skin
  • Acne Scars
  • Dry Skin
  • Fine Wrinkles
  • Sun-Damaged Skin

Dermaplaning is safe for most clients, with little risk of side effects when performed by a certified dermatologist. The procedure does not require any recovery time, making it extremely convenient. The most difficult part may be finding a trained provider who can administer this treatment.

Dermaplaning procedures are not covered by medical insurance, and costs per session may vary depending on the area and the provider you choose. Get a cost estimate at a consultation before booking your appointment. Sessions cost up to $250 for each 30-minute session of dermaplaning. Dermatologists say this treatment is effective for a few weeks to help skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright.
