Are you looking for an effective alternative to dermabrasion or chemical peels? Dermaplaning is the latest, non-invasive cosmetic procedure that exfoliates and smooths the skin by ridding it of dead cells on the surface of the skin. This treatment can also lead to healthier skin that appears firmer, glowing, and youthful. At the Glasgold Group, we perform Dermaplaning in Princeton, New Jersey, with great results!
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a quick, well-known, safe and effective procedure for helping facial skin look and feel its very best. This treatment will gently scrape old, dead skin cells, fine facial hair (vellus hair), and old scars from acne and other causes and leaves the skin looking and feeling fresh and young again.
Dermaplaning is very popular today with reality television stars and other celebrities. The reasons are simple: it can be completed quickly, has no side effects or complications, and delivers amazing results.
Benefits of Dermaplaning
Dermaplaning can be used on all skin types and to treat several skin issues, including the following:
- Scarring from acne or other reasons
- Excess of fine hair on the face (hair peach fuzz)
- Removal of old layers of dead skin cells
- Reduce the appearance of large pores, skin discoloration, fine lines
- Remedy dry, dull skin
- Clear up the clogging from blackheads and whiteheads
- Stimulate new skin cell growth for younger-looking skin
Ideal Candidates for Dermaplaning
The best candidates have some level of superficial skin damage or scarring that they wish to remedy but are otherwise healthy. Dermaplaning is also an excellent choice for women who are pregnant or nursing and cannot use any chemicals or peeling agents to support healthier-looking skin.
Candidates should take care to stay out of the sun before and after their procedure so skin is not compromised. This is especially important following the procedure, as dermaplaning will stimulate your facial skin to create more collagen, a protein that contributes to younger-looking, more hydrated skin.
NOTE: Dermaplaning candidates who are currently under the care of a dermatologist for any skin conditions should consult with their provider before scheduling a procedure.

Dermaplaning vs. Microdermabrasion
Some patients hear the word “dermaplaning” and associate it with “dermabrasion.” It is important to clarify that the two procedures have nothing in common! Dermaplaning, unlike microdermabrasion, is a trusted staple treatment for licensed cosmetologists, dermatologists, and cosmetic surgeons today. Microdermabrasion is a procedure that removes skin layers to expose healthy new skin.
Microdermabrasion is very popular but is not a simple, low-risk treatment for the patient or licensed practitioner. Dermaplaning, on the other hand, is much less invasive and yet delivers strikingly similar results. It helps you achieve clear, smooth skin without the downtime of microdermabrasion or other manual exfoliation procedures.
Dermaplaning uses a single blade to gently exfoliate the top layer of skin, exposing new skin cells for healthier-looking skin. Whereas microdermabrasion uses a rotary machine that removes dead skin and leaves it looking dull, dermaplaning delivers new collagen that improves the overall texture of your skin while enhancing the quality and health of existing collagen.
The Dermaplaning Consultation
During a dermaplaning consultation, your provider will do a thorough skin exam and talk with you about your objectives and goals for the dermaplaning procedure. You will also be able to get all of your questions answered in the consultation.
Your provider will also ask you if you have any allergies (a nickel allergy is important to mention) and ask you to sign a consent to treatment form that includes disclosure of any possible issues to consider. However, your provider will also make you aware that there are no known dermaplaning side effects at this time.
Once you have finished your consultation and completed any necessary paperwork, you can schedule the date and time for your procedure.
What to Expect During Dermaplaning Treatment
Dermaplaning is safe, effective, and easy. Dermaplaning is an outpatient procedure that takes about a half-hour to complete, so it can be done during your lunch hour from work if need be. Patients say the procedure is completely painless. In fact, to the casual observer, a patient receiving dermaplaning might appear instead to be simply receiving a close shave from a particularly meticulous barber!
Here is what to expect during a dermaplaning procedure:
- You will schedule your appointment and arrive on time the day of.
- You will schedule your appointment and arrive on time the day of.
- Your practitioner will gently clean your skin before beginning dermaplaning.
- Using a knife with a No. 10 surgical blade made of stainless steel, your practitioner will gently feather the blade across your facial skin. You must hold completely still during this part!
- Following your procedure, your practitioner will apply a moisturizing sunscreen agent to your skin.
- You are free to return to work and daily life immediately.
Recovery Process from Dermaplaning
The best news about dermaplaning recovery is that there is no downtime required. The skin won’t even look irritated, inflamed, or red, so co-workers and family members won’t know what has suddenly rejuvenated and revitalized your skin. And there is no discomfort and no need for the application of any special topical creams or solutions following the procedure.
However, it is not recommended to have the dermaplaning procedure done more than once every 30 days, because the process removes any dead or damaged skin cells from the prior three-week period.

There are very few side effects associated with dermaplaning, so most people can expect to feel fine throughout the procedure and in the period following it. Here are some of the risks and potential side-effects: risk of infection under the skin caused by a nick or cut from the blade, a minor burn may occur, a breakout from underlying conditions may appear after treatment.
After dermaplaning, your hair may grow back darker and coarser than it was before. The good news is that if you are not happy with the results of the procedure, you can always repeat the process as often as necessary.
Before dermaplaning, patients should avoid exposing their face to any sun as that may cause skin irritation. Other than that, your practitioner will advise you on other things to stay away from before or after the procedure.
