Experience Dermaplaning: the new way to exfoliate your face. Get instantly radiant, more even-toned skin with this innovative treatment.* Your face has never felt this smooth before!* Dermaplaning is an exfoliating procedure of the outer skin layer. It removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) leaving a smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearance. Because dermaplaning is a quick procedure with few to no adverse effects, it has quickly gained popularity among cosmetic medical providers across the country. Using a scalpel and a delicate touch, our certified aestheticians simply abrade the surface of the skin using light feathering strokes.
A Smoother, Brighter Complexion
At Skin Body Soul Des Moines Dermaplaning is method of exfoliation that gently scrapes off the top layer of dulling skin cells and excess vellus hair in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. This layer of dead skin and excess hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing them gives you healthier, brighter-looking skin.
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving. First, one of our licensed aestheticians will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut and with short, swift strokes scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz with a sterile blade. After dermaplaning Des Moines aestheticians will gently apply a hydrating, moisturizing lotion followed by SPF. A typical service should take around 30 minutes.
Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age.
There are little to no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be sensitive to sun exposure and may look pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher to reduce the risk of hyperpigmentation.
Following dermaplaning Des Moines patients report immediately looking more radiant with a more even skin tone and texture. All of your peach fuzz will be gone, which is why first-timers say their skin has never felt so soft before. Along with an instant improvement in skin texture and tone, the long-term effects are increased cell turnover, fewer wrinkles and dark spots, and the reduction of acne scarring. After dermaplaning, skin care products and treatments perform much more efficiently since they can penetrate the skin more easily. Your makeup goes on smoother as well. It’s also the perfect procedure to begin stacking other treatments, like our PCA Face Peel, Microneedling, and Microdermabrasion. *Results May Vary.
Some patients have expressed concern that the hair will grow back heavier and darker after dermaplaning. This is not the case. Superficial vellus hair (peach fuzz) will grow back at the same rate and texture as before the treatment.
You need to arrive with a makeup-free face. One of our licensed estheticians will cleanse your face for you before the treatment begins.
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its full rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.

“My lashes have gotten thinner and more sparse. That’s why I asked my optometrist about LATISSE®, hoping that it would help my lashes grow.Now that my lashes are longer and darker, I’m doing more to draw attention to my eyes; I cut my hair shorter and I’m even wearing my contacts more just to show them off.” - CINDY
“Being a blonde, I’ve always had light brown lashes with some blonde ones mixed in, which, as you can imagine, just disappeared on my face. They didn’t even show up in photographs! But since I have been using LATISSE®, my lashes are noticeably darker than my previous shade, which is fantastic! Without a doubt, I have become a believer in LATISSE®!” - JENNY
