Get even better results

Adding an Illuminize chemical peel, a HydraFacial or another type of facial immediately following your dermaplaning treatment can be especially beneficial. At this point, your skin is most receptive — the chemicals used in a peel and the nutrients and moisturizers in a facial can penetrate the deeper layers for maximum benefit. 

What happens after dermaplaning?

Everyone’s face is different, so dermaplaning results vary a bit from one person to another. You may have some redness initially, but it will subside soon after the treatment. You will immediately notice that your skin looks brighter and smoother, but it will be a few days before you see the full results.  

There is no downtime required. In fact, this treatment is so convenient, that some of our patients schedule a dermaplaning appointment during their lunch hour.

You may have heard the myth that vellus hair will grow back thicker after a treatment like this, but that is biologically impossible. Nonetheless, tiny hairs will grow back. So, to retain your smooth appearance without vellus hair, Dr. Hernandez recommends repeat sessions. Depending on how fast your hair grows, that will typically be anywhere from 4-6 weeks.
