Dermaplane Facial Treatments

Dermaplaning Facials can treat skin imperfections without any redness or irritation. There are several ways to exfoliate the outer layers of skin to remove dead skin cells. This treatment is gentle and gets rid of minor skin imperfections, such as mild acne scars, dry skin, and fine lines and wrinkles. People living in Charlotte, Huntersville, Greensboro, NC, and the surrounding communities may want to contact CAMI and Dr. Stephen Giordano for more information.

What is a Dermaplane Facial?

It is an easy, quick skin rejuvenating treatment to remove the dead outer layers of skin cells. It is often recommended for patients who have rough, dry skin or mild acne scarring and is often done prior to other cosmetic treatments to maximize the results. It is very safe and effective resulting in a glowing, refreshed complexion.

The Dermaplane Facial procedure increases cellular turnover so that the skin is much softer. The dermaplaning facial treatment causes the body to produce new skin cells that add volume to the treatment, rejuvenating the skin’s appearance. In addition to removing dead skin, it also removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz), which can trap oil and cause more skin problems to occur.

How Does Dermaplane Facial Work?

The face is cleansed followed by a toner to remove excess grease or oil. Using a surgical scalpel, unwanted oil, dead skin cells, and vellus hair are scraped away from the top layer of skin. The dermaplane facial treatment is done over each area of the face and removes the right amount of dead skin without hurting healthy layers. Other issues, such as uneven skin tones, blackheads, and acne, can also be extracted to make sure the skin is fresher and healthier. Following this, chemical peels and other treatments may be applied, as dermaplaning facial is very gentle to the skin. The result is a glowing complexion that appears fresher but not “done.”

This dermaplane facial treatment does not cause any discomfort or pain and takes less than an hour to complete. For skin that requires more than one treatment, it is recommended to allow two to four weeks between each treatment.


There is no preparation for a dermaplane facial. It is recommended that patients avoid direct sun or artificial tanning in the week or two prior to treatments to ensure no irritation and effective results.


There is no recovery or downtime at all – nor are there any side effects following the dermaplane facial procedure. Patients go back to their normal daily routines immediately following the procedure.
