Home/Med Spa/Dermaplaning


At Innovative Dental, our entire team is dedicated to helping you look and feel great, and a visit to our on-site med spa offers both relaxation and cosmetic rejuvenation. Our experienced Nurse Injector and aesthetics expert, Lauren Helmuth, provides dermaplaning, a non-invasive treatment designed to remove dull, dead skin cells and reveal the smoother, softer, and more refreshed-looking skin beneath. 

Please reach out to us today to schedule an appointment with Lauren. In the meantime, we invite you to explore the informative sections below to learn more about dermaplaning. 

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure designed to exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells, debris, and even the vellus hairs—commonly known as “peach fuzz”—that contribute to a dull appearance. This is done using a small, thin blade, which Lauren will carefully guide along the surface of the skin. By gently removing the outermost layers of the dermis, the softer, clearer, and healthier skin below can be revealed. 

What Can Dermaplaning Treat?

Dermaplaning can treat a range of common skin concerns, including: 

  • Dull and/or dry skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines
  • Clogged pores

In addition to the skin health benefits of dermaplaning, many people also appreciate the fact that the procedure temporarily removes the fine vellus hairs from the surface of the skin. By eliminating peach fuzz, many cosmetic products—such as foundations and concealers—apply more smoothly. Plus, the smoother, healthier new skin is able to absorb more of the benefits from your skincare routine. 

For patients seeking more targeted anti-aging effects, we also offer microneedling and BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, which can help address deeper wrinkles. 

What Can I Expect From a Dermaplaning Treatment?

The dermaplaning procedure is performed in-office by our highly-trained and experienced aesthetic professional. The entire treatment process typically takes less than an hour, and it is generally painless. 

During the procedure, Lauren will carefully guide a small blade over the surface of the skin, gently removing the outer layer of the dermis. Any dead skin cells, dirt, debris, and hair on the surface of the skin will be meticulously removed, leaving behind the healthy, radiant skin underneath. 

There is typically no recovery period or downtime associated with dermaplaning treatment, and many patients return to work or other regular activities immediately afterwards. That said, you may be advised to avoid excessive sun exposure and wear a good SPF, as the newly-revealed skin is more sensitive to damaging UV rays. You may also be advised to adjust your skincare routine and use more gentle products for a few days. 

How Long Do the Results of Dermaplaning Last?

The immediate results of dermaplaning typically last between 1-3 months, at which point touch-up treatments may be sought. That said, there are long-term benefits to regular dermaplaning sessions, which is why many aestheticians recommend that patients schedule a series of treatments. Long-term benefits can include smaller, clearer pores, less breakouts, diminished fine lines, and an improvement in the appearance of acne scarring.

How Much Does Dermaplaning Cost?

The precise cost of dermaplaning will depend on a few different factors, including the number of treatments being sought and the complexity of the case. After your initial meeting with Lauren, we can provide you with a personalized price quote that reflects your unique needs and goals.
