Offering the best Dermaplaning in Phoenix and Scottsdale AZ.  Suddenly Slimmer Day and Med Spa has been in Practice since 1988!

Dermaplaning uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade to gently scrape the outer layers of dead, dull skin cells. It also effectively removes the very fine (peach fuzz) hair that is commonly found on the face. This treatment is great for those people who want the advantages commonly seen with professional exfoliation, but have skin that is too sensitive for the suction associated with traditional microdermabrasion.

  • Improve skin texture
  • Remove “peach fuzz” facial hair
  • Reduce the appearance of fine lines
  • Brighten dull skin
  • Reduce pigment irregularities
  • Stimulate collagen production and skin tightness

There is no “down time” involved and you may return to your office or your busy schedule afterwards. Patients who routinely receive Dermaplane treatments comment on the smoothness of their skin and its “baby skin like quality” and see an immediate improvement to the radiance of their skin tone. Dermaplaning is also frequently used prior to another facial treatment. Since Dermaplaning removes the dead skin cells and stimulates the surface of the skin, chemical or plant based skin formulations are absorbed more efficiently and results are remarkably improved.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does dermaplaning work?

Your skin is pulled taut while a sterile surgical blade is very gently scraped across the surface. This blade removes dead skin, and vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the face. This leaves the skin ultra smooth and bright.

Will the hair on my face grow back darker or thicker?

No! It is impossible to change the structure of your hair follicle by manipulating the hair only on the surface. Your hair will gradually grow back exactly how it was before the treatment.

Am I a candidate for dermaplaning?

Suddenly Slimmer’s licensed medical aesthetician will analyze your skin prior to treatment and determine if you are a candidate. If you have found in the past that your skin is too sensitive for a microdermabrasion, dermaplaning may work best for you.

Can Dermaplaning be combined with chemical peels or IPL treatments?

Yes, and it is often recommended

How often do I need to get this treatment done?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 4 weeks.

What do I need to do before and after my dermaplane treatment?

You must discontinue any exfoliating products including alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) serums, scrubs, retinol night creams and topical prescriptions (Triluma, Retin-A, Tretinoin etc…) for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days after your treatment. It is very important to apply sunscreen daily after this treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun’s damaging rays.

Is there downtime associated with dermaplaning?

There is no downtime after this treatment. You may have slight redness for a few hours, but your skin will be smooth and bright very quickly. We call this a “lunch time treatment”, often people will return back to work as soon as the treatment is over.

Is this treatment safe for pregnant or lactating women?

Yes this treatment can be performed safely on pregnant or lactating women.
