What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a completely non-invasive way to achieve healthy and vibrant skin. It works by removing the layer of dead cells on the surface of your skin to reveal your beautiful complexion underneath. At Marcus Medical, we routinely use dermaplaning to help our clients:

  • Achieve a healthy complexion
  • Minimize the look of fine lines
  • Reduce acne scars
  • Treat large pores
  • Address uneven skin pigmentation
  • Achieve smoother skin texture
  • Remove unwanted facial hair

What Can I Expect During My Dermaplaning Treatment?

Our highly trained specialists are experts at administering comfortable and effective dermaplaning treatments. During the procedure, your skin will be held taught and one of our aestheticians will gently stroke a sterile surgical blade –somewhat similar to a shaving razor – along your face. In this way, the blade will remove dead cells and reveal vibrant skin. No anesthetics are required during dermaplaning, and you can expect the entire procedure to be completely pain-free. At Marcus Medical Spa, we can also apply an enzyme mask or chemical peel after your treatment, to penetrate the deepest layers of your skin and ensure an absolutely radiant complexion.

After your dermaplaning procedure, there is no downtime and you will be free to resume your normal daily routine immediately. However, you will be advised to refrain from exercising and exfoliating the area for 24 hours after your treatment to ensure an optimal outcome.


The results of your dermaplaning procedure at Marcus Medical will be apparent immediately, with smooth, youthful and glowing skin. However, although the results of dermaplaning are incredible, they are not permanent. To ensure a continuously beautiful complexion, you will need to repeat the treatment once every four weeks.

Are There Any Side Effects?

When performed by our aestheticians at Marcus Medical, dermaplaning is an extremely gentle procedure that rarely results in any side effects. When they do occur, they are typically very minor, and may include temporary dryness, redness and flaking of the skin.
