DERMAPLANING

In Melbourne, FL

At this time, dermaplaning is only performed as part of a deluxe HydraFacial treatment.

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that uses a surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells in order to uncover a smoother, brighter complexion. It is the solution for smooth, peach-fuzz-free skin. Dermaplaning facials are provided for residents of Melbourne, Indialantic,  Viera, Brevard County, the beaches, or surrounding areas in Central Florida at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, where Drs. Anita Saluja and Rebecca Novo offer the most advanced treatments in cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery. 

WHAT IS DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that uses a 10-gauge surgical scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells to reveal a radiant new layer of skin. It is the solution for smooth, peach-fuzz-free skin. The skin looks supple and vibrant.

WHAT CONDITIONS ARE TREATED WITH DERMAPLANING?

Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with inflammatory or cystic acne. The procedure removes dead skin cells, as well as imperfections present on the outermost layer of skin. Patients are happy with reduced peach fuzz, diminished appearance of pores, more radiance to skin, and improved medical skin care product absorption.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DERMAPLANING AND MICRODERMABRASION?

Both dermaplaning and microdermabrasion provide physical exfoliation but through very different methods. Microdermabrasion sands and suctions away dead skin cells, while dermaplaning safely scrapes off the top layer of skin. Dermaplaning is better suited for drier, more sensitive, and rosacea skin types as well as anyone who wants to eliminate peach fuzz from their facial skin.

IS DERMAPLANING PAINFUL?

A dermaplaning facial is a painless, relaxing procedure that feels similar to shaving.

First, the skin will be cleansed and thoroughly dried. Following this, the skin is pulled taut, and swift, gentle strokes with a surgical scalpel are used to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. There is no downtime associated with this procedure.

Ask for our “Red Carpet Combination” which combines dermaplaning with a micro-enzyme event-ready chemical peel.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM DERMAPLANING?

The procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete. There are no side effects and zero downtime with dermaplaning. Your skin will immediately appear smoother, clearer, and more radiant, with an improved skin tone and texture. Your peach fuzz will be gone, creating an effect that feels unbelievably soft.

Before treatment, it is advised to discontinue the use of hydroxyl acids, retinols, tretinoin, and other exfoliative creams 5-7 days prior to the appointment and wear daily sunscreen.

Following the treatment, your skin will be extremely sensitive to sun exposure and may already look reddish, so it is important to use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 to reduce the risk of additional sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Please visit our For Your Best Self-store for our sunscreen recommendations.
Dermaplaning is safe for patients who are pregnant or nursing.

HOW OFTEN CAN DERMAPLANING BE PERFORMED?

Dermaplaning is designed to remove 21 days’ worth of dead skin cells, so it is advisable to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before undergoing your next dermaplaning treatment. Most patients return in 4-6 weeks for repeat treatments.

WHAT IS THE COST OF DERMAPLANING IN CENTRAL FLORIDA?

Dermaplaning is a relatively inexpensive cosmetic procedure, but the price of the procedure may vary according to the size of the treatment area and any other procedure you may choose to combine dermaplaning with. To help manage the costs of dermaplaning, our office accepts flexible payment options.

Dr. Saluja and staff members are nothing but the best. I’ve been receiving Botox and fillers for almost two years now and the results never fail to impress me. I always recommend to anybody and everybody!

Amazing treatment! We have been to many doctors throughout the US and this is the best. Dr Saluja could be one of the top dermatologists in New York or Los Angeles and we’re fortunate enough to have her offices here in Melbourne — very comfortable office.
