What if we told you that there is a real-life filter that can help you achieve skin that looks enhanced? At Skin Boutique in the Birmingham area of Metro Detroit, we offer Dermaplaning, a cosmetic procedure that involves gently scraping your face with a scalpel to remove the epidermis—your top layer of skin—and small hairs, resulting in glowing skin that will have your friends and family complimenting your new look. This page is dedicated to all the facts regarding Dermaplaning and how you can filter out the bad and embrace the best when it comes to modern skin enhancement.


What Is Dermaplaning?

Learn about Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic treatment that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape away the outermost layer of dead skin cells and fine hair (peach fuzz) from your face. The goal of Dermaplaning at Skin Boutique is to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin, resulting in a smoother, brighter complexion. It can also help to improve the absorption of skincare products by removing the layer of dead skin cells that can block their penetration into the skin. The process is painless and usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. When done with the professionalism of our team, it offers a range of results for the skin, including improved texture, tone, and radiance.

What are the first
steps of Dermaplaning?

First Steps

The first step in getting Dermaplaning in Detroit or Birmingham is to schedule a consultation at Skin Boutique. During the consultation, you will have the opportunity to meet with our team of technicians to discuss your treatment goals. A personalized plan will be developed based on your unique needs and the areas that will benefit the most from Dermaplaning. If you are satisfied with the plan, we can begin your first session immediately. However, if you need more time to decide, our Patient Coordinator can assist you in finding a suitable date that works with your schedule.


What to expect?

Dermaplaning Expectations

For 2 to 3 days before treatment, you must discontinue any irritant topical agents, such as alpha-hydroxy acids, beta-hydroxy acids, glycolic acids, and retinol. These can be resumed one week after the procedure. During the day of your dermaplaning procedure at Skin Boutique, a trained skincare professional will hold the skin taut and use the scalpel to make short, swift strokes across the face. The process is painless and usually takes 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.



Dermaplaning Recovery

After Dermaplaning treatment, your skin will look fabulous, and you may resume most activities (please do not work up a sweat for the first 48 hours after the procedure). Most patients’ skin may appear slightly red and feel sensitive; this should subside within a few hours. It is essential to protect the skin from sun exposure and avoid using harsh exfoliants or acids for a few days following the treatment. 

How much
does Dermaplaning cost in Detroit?

The cost of Dermaplaning in the Detroit area is based on several different factors, including the surface area being treated and how many sessions you will need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
