What to know before your Dermaplaning Atlanta Treatment
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a noninvasive, quick and painless exfoliating procedure where skin cells and peach fuzz on the surface of the skin are scraped away using a sharp edged blade.
Once the dirt, oil, peach fuzz, and dead skin cells are scraped away, facial products and treatments are much more effective as they can penetrate the skin more easily.
Anyone who desires, healthier, smoother, softer and more radiant skin should opt for dermaplaning. Come get dermaplaning at Ellemes Medical Spa in Atlanta today, you won’t regret it!
What areas can be treated with Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is typically a procedure done on the face and neck. Although dermaplaning can be performed on other parts of the body as well, this is generally not common as the treatment is generally intended to help exfoliate the face and allow for better product penetration.
Most patients are candidates for dermaplaning except for patients with severe acne or breakouts.
Will hair regrow back darker and thicker?
Absolutely not. We get this question quite often; however, fear not. Hair regrowth will not be darker or thicker after dermaplaning. Hair will regrow at the same color and thickness as before the procedure. No need to worry about unsightly facial stubble, as your skin will be baby bottom smooth after each dermaplaning treatment.

We typically recommend patients get dermaplaning completed once per month or in conjunction with another service. There are no side effects associated with dermaplaning, and you should not breakout after this service as long as you continue using a good skincare routine.
How does dermaplaning work?
Dermaplaning is a non-surgical procedure and no anesthesia is required. It is a very quick treatment that usually takes around 30 minutes from start to finish.
The treatment begins with a thorough cleansing of the skin in the treatment area. Next, a scalpel is used and gently cuts and scrapes away dead skin cells, dirt, and oil. Each area of the face is carefully scraped to remove the top layers of peach fuzz and dead skin.
Dermaplaning is not the same thing as shaving, as dermaplaning removes layers of dead skin using a very sharp surgical scalpel, whereas shaving only removes the hair on the surface using a razor. This treatment should not be done at home and should only be completed by a licensed esthetician. A licensed skincare professional is highly trained in this treatment so you should not fear getting cuts on the face after the treatment.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime after receiving this procedure outside of the slight possibility of redness right after the procedure. Although uncommon, you may have slight redness for 24 to 48 hours following the procedure, but your skin will feel smoother and look more youthful immediately after the treatment.
Is dermaplaning safe for darker or black skin?
Yes, dermaplaning is an amazing treatment for all skin tones and types with the exception of very acne prone patients.
