A Dermaplaning Facial Will Change Your Life – Silver Mirror

Exfoliating 1-2 times per week is a must for anyone looking to have clearer and healthier skin. But honestly, who has time to think about adding exfoliation to a skincare routine when all you really want to do when you get home is curl up with a glass of wine? That’s where adding a dermaplaning treatment to any facial at Silver Mirror comes in to save the day.


Dermaplaning is a safe and highly effective method of physical exfoliation. It involves using an ultra-sharp surgical scalpel to gently “shave” the surface of the skin – removing the top layer of dead skin cells and peach fuzz.

It sounds scary (!), but when performed by a trained and experienced esthetician, it is completely painless, safe, quick and the results are immediate. Your complexion is left healthier, brighter, smoother and clearer as soon as the treatment is over. And because your skincare products will penetrate better, you’ll see the results last and your skin improve over the next several weeks.


Anyone with acne-scarring, hyperpigmentation, or uneven skin tone is an ideal client for dermaplaning. Mature and aging skin types with fine lines or wrinkles, would also benefit from this treatment. Being a physical exfoliating method, dermaplaning is especially safe for pregnant and lactating mothers who cannot get chemical peels.

However, dermplaning is not ideal for oily skin types, and those with active acne should wait until lesions or breakouts completely heal.


Estheticians at Silver Mirror go through extensive training and hands-on certification for dermaplaning. So rest assured that you’ll be in great hands when getting a treatment with us!

We offer dermaplaning as an add-on to any of our facials with the estheticians in-house who are certified. Please call and ask ahead who is able to perform this treatment when booking.

Our most popular combination is the Anti-Aging Facial with a dermaplaning add-on. Because you’re getting a 50-minute facial packed with our latest anti-aging devices and products plus a thorough exfoliation, the results are spectacular for the skin.


Dermaplaning is the old-new kid on the block, and we know you have a lot of questions. So, let’s start by answering a few:

  1. The main question all of our estheticians get is whether the vellous “peach fuzz” hair grows back thicker and darker once removed. That is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellous hair will grow back slowly- usually in about 4 weeks – and will be the same thickness and color as your hair has always been.
  1. Here at Silver Mirror, we suggest that our clients come back every 3-4 weeks to get a facial, which is also an ideal amount of time for the skin to renew itself and be ready for another dermaplaning appointment.
  1. Dermaplaning is not painful, and shouldn’t leave you with any cuts, scars or peeling. We take an oil-based approach to dermaplaning rather than a dry-skin approach, which other places might do. Because of this, there is less likelihood for any cuts.


  1. There is no downtime with this treatment, unlike some facials or chemical peels.
  1. What is the difference between dermaplaning and microdermabrasion? For starters, both are a form of physical exfoliation. However, dermaplaning removes vellus hair (peach fuzz) and dead skin cells from the skin, whereas microdermabrasion will also exfoliate but not as thoroughly or deeply.

Are you convinced yet about dermaplaning? We here at Silver Mirror love this treatment for our customers, and we know the results speak for themselves.
