When it comes to the latest 'must have' beauty treatment, dermaplaning is a highly desirable skincare essential, that's become a firm favorite of celebrities and medi-aesthetics clients over the last couple of years, who are passionate about retaining a natural glowing, flawless complexion.  Sometimes referred to as epidermal leveling or blading, dermaplaning is a medical skin treatment consisting of manual exfoliation of the outermost layers of the epidermis.  The treatment is safely performed using a sterile surgical blade, and the skin is gently exfoliated, removing dead skin cells and impurities.

As a non-invasive aesthetic facial treatment, dermaplaning has the ability to address a number of skincare concerns, ranging from unwanted signs of premature ageing to mild scarring and pigmentation. Key benefits for Dermaplaning at Salon Serenity Spa in Wake Forest, North Raleigh NC are;

  • Dermaplaning encourages the normal shedding (desquamation) of the stratum corneum and the removal of dead keratinised cells from the epidermis (top layer) of the skin.
  • Dermaplaning minimises the appearance of fine lines and superficial scars.
  • Dermaplaning increases the skin's ability to absorb topical products and high performance cosmeceuticals which have been developed to target specific skincare issues. 
  • A dermaplaning treatment actively stimulates circulation, increasing the delivery of oxygen to the cells.
  • Dermaplaning primes the skin for other medi-aesthetics modalities such as chemical peels, micro needling, mesotherapy and LED light mask therapy.  
  • Dermaplaning removes fine 'vellus' hairs  commonly know as “peach fuzz” from the face and creates an even surface free from sebum and excess keratin.  However, this hair will not grow back any thicker or darker than it was before treatment.


​Dermaplaning at Salon Serenity Spa may be done as an alternative to a chemical peel, or as the first step of a multi-level treatment which combines dermaplaning with a chemical peel, for deeper penetration of the peel. Dermaplaning is a safe treatment when performed by a professional Aesthetician. All skin types and colors can benefit from dermaplaning or blading. At Salon Serenity Spa our aestheticians are highly trained and experienced in performing Dermaplaning treatments. 

This quick, non-surgical procedure is pain free. There is no swelling or pain associated with the dermaplaning procedure. Most people say it feels good and there is absolutely no down time. The reason there is no pain with the dermaplaning procedure is because there are no chemicals used and the procedure is only taking off the dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.

Immediately after a dermaplaning facial the skin may look slightly red and flushed, due to the circulation being enhanced and any unwanted sebum and dirt which had been trapped by vellus hairs being removed. Erythema (redness) of the skin will subside within a couple of hours with new fresh cells creating a glowing complexion, which will last for several days post treatment and create a perfect base upon which to apply makeup. One of the key benefits associated with a dermaplaning treatment is that due to the gentle yet effective nature of the procedure, there is no down time required so you will be able to carry on with your day to day activities as normal and are able to apply a mineral based makeup and sunscreen a couple of hours after the treatment has taken place. 


Absolutely, unlike more invasive treatments such as laser skin resurfacing, mild grade chemical peels and microdermabrasion, dermaplaning is suitable for all skin types, due to the procedure itself being gentle yet highly effective. The treatment is recommended for individuals who suffer from conditions such as Rosacea, Telangiectasia, are prone to skin sensitivity and who are contraindicated to other types of facial electrical treatments i.e if pregnant or epileptic. 


While both demaplaning and microdermabrasion are forms of exfoliation, they do differ considerably in technique. Dermaplaning is a manual treatment which uses a sterile scalpel to remove fine vellus hairs and keratinised skin cells from the epidermis, whilst in contrast microdermabrasion is slightly more abrasive employing an electrical vacuum suction device and mechanical hand piece containing a diamond tip, aluminum oxide crystals or other similar products to in essence 'sand, buff and polish' the skin.
