Dermaplaning is a quick, in-office treatment designed to remove hair and exfoliate the skin, resulting in brighter, smoother, younger-looking skin with a single session. At Biltmore Dermatology, we offer walk-in appointments so you can rejuvenate your skin and enjoy a brighter look whenever you need it.

What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning uses manual exfoliation to remove dead skin cells, fine hairs, texture, and debris from the surface of the skin. It uses a device similar to a surgical scalpel which “shaves” the surface of the skin, removing tiny “peach fuzz” hairs and the buildup of dead skin cells that makes your skin look dull, dry, and textured. Dermaplaning is an excellent option for virtually any skincare regimen and we recommend it as a regular way to brighten and exfoliate your skin. Our experienced team has been performing dermaplaning for years and can help you optimize your skin with this powerful treatment.

Dermaplaning Candidates

Dermaplaning is a great option for many different patients because it doesn’t require any harsh products or technologies. It can also easily be combined with other cosmetic options and products to further enhance their effectiveness. If you’re concerned about the following, you may benefit greatly from dermaplaning:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Congestion
  • Dryness and texture
  • Unwanted facial hair
  • Dullness

If you have any active breakouts or skin conditions, our dermatology-certified provider will assess your skin and determine whether dermaplaning is the best option for you.

Although dermaplaning is not as effective at anti-aging as technologies like lasers, it’s an excellent, accessible option for patients who want to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. It can also help your skincare products absorb and penetrate better, leading to better results. Finally, it can produce an immediate glow and smooth texture, making it a great option before a big event.

What to Expect During Dermaplaning Treatment

Dermaplaning doesn’t require any anesthetic and takes only about 30 minutes. To begin, our team will discuss your goals and develop a personalized treatment plan. Then your skin will be cleansed and prepared. The specialized tool will be lightly scraped across the skin while held at an angle. This removes any dead or damaged skin cells, fine hairs, and congestion. Afterward, professional-grade skincare products will be applied where they will be more effectively absorbed by your healthy new skin. Then, you can go about your day.

Dermaplaning Results and Recovery

We recommend dermaplaning treatments monthly to maintain your results. It requires no downtime, and it’s a great option for patients with busy schedules. You may have some minor redness or irritation, but it typically subsides within a few hours. Make sure to avoid any kind of exfoliation for a few days after treatment and wear SPF 30+ sunscreen daily. This helps avoid irritation and protects your results.


If you have an immediate concern, you want to find quality care as soon as possible. Our office takes walk-in appointments and will be happy to address your concerns and offer you immediate treatment suggestions and medical care.
