What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a professional exfoliation treatment designed to remove the top layers of your skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and blemishes and improve your complexion.

Sometimes called microplaning or blading, all dermaplaning treatments at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic are performed with a surgical-grade scalpel by a qualified provider.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?

Some of the benefits of dermaplaning include:

  • Reduces acne scarring
  • Improves sun damage
  • Smooths wrinkles
  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Unclogs pores
  • Brightens dull skin


By removing dead skin layers, dermaplaning enhances the absorption of hydrators and other skincare products.

What happens during a dermaplaning treatment?

Your dermaplaning appointment begins with a discussion of your skin goals. First, your Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic expert also performs a thorough skin evaluation.

Next, they cleanse your skin and use the sterile blade to carefully scrape away the top layers of skin, revealing the healthier, fresher layers underneath.

Sessions typically take around 20-30 minutes.

Is dermaplaning safe?

Dermaplaning is a low-risk, safe procedure and is well tolerated by most patients. It doesn’t require any downtime.

You may experience mild redness following your dermaplaning session, but this should resolve within 2-3 days.

It’s recommended to wear plenty of sunscreen. It will help if you avoid direct sun exposure in the treated area for a few weeks following your treatment.

How long will my dermaplaning results last?

Right after your dermaplaning treatment, you may notice that your skin already looks less dull, brighter even. Full results usually become visible within a few days after your treatment.

Your results typically last about three weeks. Monthly dermaplaning treatments are recommended to keep your skin healthy and rejuvenated.

Your specialist at Ashburn Laser & Skincare Clinic may also advise on an at-home skincare regimen to help extend your dermaplaning results.

Is dermaplaning right for me?

Dermaplaning is an excellent option for most adults. The treatment can be performed on most skin types.

Because dermaplaning sessions are short and no downtime is required, it’s convenient to have during your lunch hour or whenever you have a break in your busy schedule.
