What is Dermaplaning?
If skin rejuvenation treatments like facials and microdermabrasion are no longer giving you the results you desire, but you are not interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, consider dermaplaning skin treatments. Dermaplaning is an innovative cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smoothes your skin by stripping away dead skin cells and vellus facial hair for a radiant, youthful complexion. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is performed with a careful scraping technique with a facial blade. Dr. Chidester is pleased to offer dermaplaning skin treatments at Jerry Chidester, MD in South Jordan, UT. Dermaplaning is requested more and more these days because while it is noninvasive, it is able to provide smooth, beautiful skin.

"I had a totally different experience with Dr Chidister’s office and a reconstruction of a breast augmentation I had done less than seven years ago. My pain and swelling was absolutely nonexistent, and I was up and moving around my house the next day. I have cried tears of joy and how my breast augmentation has turned out and I’m not even six months postop I have never been happier or more impressed by a surgeon and the time he takes to know each of his patients and provides them exactly what they are looking for"- K.G. / Google / Apr 16, 2021
Am I a Candidate for Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning procedures are safe and effective solutions for most skin types and tones. Men and women suffering from severe acne should discuss their skin condition with our team beforehand. Ideal candidates for the dermaplaning procedure:
- Are seeking something other than microdermabrasion and chemical peels
- Don't have rosacea
- Have an abundance of fine facial hair
- Don't have sensitive skin
- Have uneven skin tone
Our Dermaplaning Technique
Dermaplane treatments are usually completed on an outpatient basis in our office. After the skin is cleaned, the treatment will begin with a careful skimming of the surface of the skin with a facial blade. The technician will skim the treatment area repeatedly until the face has been entirely treated. The treatment time will depend upon whether part of or the full face is being addressed. During your consultation, Dr. Chidester will explain the process of dermaplaning to you.
What to Expect
Following your dermaplaning session, you should expect your face to be a little pink. This is a normal reaction that will fade in the coming days. It's not uncommon for small amounts of peeling to occur as the skin heals. However, it's important not to pull them off — instead, you should allow the skin to fall off on its own. Patients should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun because the skin will be very sensitive in the days and weeks following the procedure. You can expect results soon after since dermaplaning reveals softer, smoother skin right away. In the interest of protecting your rejuvenated skin, our team will discuss a recommended skincare routine with you, including the highly recommended daily application of sunscreen.
Is there any downtime after dermaplaning?
There is usually no downtime after dermaplaning. Some individuals might experience mild redness immediately after the procedure, but this typically subsides quickly. It's important to follow your esthetician's aftercare instructions, which may include avoiding sun exposure and using gentle skincare products.
Can I combine dermaplaning with other treatments?
Dermaplaning can often be combined with other treatments, such as chemical peels or facials, to enhance the results. However, it's crucial to discuss any combination treatments with your esthetician to ensure they are appropriate for your skin type and needs.
How long does a dermaplaning session take?
A dermaplaning session usually takes around 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the additional services being provided.
Can I do dermaplaning at home?
While there are at-home dermaplaning tools available, it's generally recommended to have this procedure done by a trained professional. Performing dermaplaning at home carries a higher risk of injury, infection, or unsatisfactory results.
What is the cost of dermaplaning?
The expense of your dermaplaning therapy will center around your personalized treatment plan, the amount of treatments required to fulfill your aspirations, and if any other skin care procedure is added. As soon as your custom treatment plan is developed, Dr. Chidester will be able to estimate the costs. Our practice typically provides discounts and monthly promos, so make sure you seek information concerning this during your consult. Additionally, we supply price reductions when you buy more than one treatment.
Does dermaplaning hurt?
No. Typically, the majority of patients will not experience any distress or uneasiness during the course of a dermaplaning session since it is a noninvasive treatment that concentrates on the upper layer of skin. The point of the dermaplaning treatment is to lightly remove old or weathered skin cells and the little hairs often called "peach fuzz" for softer, refreshed skin. The effects will offer a revived and improved appearance.
Why is dermaplaning good for the skin?
If you are experiencing a surplus of "peach fuzz" or have skin that is looking tired, then this is a fantastic care choice as it is simple, affordable, nonsurgical, and does not necessitate any downtime, such as a chemical peel. Dermaplaning clears away old damaged skin and vellus hair for a beautiful profile. This process also aids in removing lodged dirt and bacteria, along with elevating elastin and collagen fibers for a radiant complexion.
Will the hair be thicker when it grows back?
No. Opposing the recognized belief that hair will regrow thicker once shaved, dermaplaning won't hinder the typical hair growth mechanism.
How often should dermaplaning be performed?
We usually advise that you acquire a dermaplaning session once per month or every 4 – 6 weeks to secure top-tier results. Speak to your provider to establish when they believe it is desirable for you to come back for successive sessions.
