What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of dulling dead skin cells of your skin. The procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles, deep acne scarring and peach fuzz as well as make the skin’s surface look brighter and smoother.
Dermaplaning exfoliates your skin and gets rid of dirt and vellus hair, better known as “peach fuzz.” It’s different from dermabrasion, where an aesthetician or doctor uses a high-speed, rotating brush to exfoliate the skin. With dermaplaning treatments, our aestheticians use a scalpel or a tool called a dermatome to remove top layers of the skin and make it glow
Dermaplaning involves the use of a scalpel to scrape the skin to remove and reduce the appearance of certain skin imperfections.
Despite what it might sound like, dermaplaning is actually a noninvasive treatment that won’t require you to miss work for recovery downtime. This treatment can correct textual inconsistencies and wrinkling of the skin along with removing problematic skin growths known as actinic keratoses. Even the appearance of some scars can be minimized with dermaplaning.
Every day, your skin is exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. For optimal and consistent results, dermaplaning should be repeated on a regular basis.
At Luminary, we want you to get the best possible results with every skin treatment, so we provide dermaplaning free of charge whenever it’s helpful to improve the results of your treatment.
Dr. Saltzburg and our team at Luminary develop personalized skin programs to ensure the best possible results for you.
Your entire session can be completed in as little as 20 to 30 minutes.
You can receive dermaplaning as often as once a month if you want to maintain your fresh look.
Even though a scalpel is used to scrape your skin, the instrument won’t be used to cut and enter your skin. In fact, you won’t even need anesthetic, and you’ll likely feel quite comfortable as the scalpel goes over your skin to remove the top skin layer to expose the healthier underlying layer.
Dermaplaning doesn’t hurt at all. It is performed with a gentle scraping motion across the surface of the skin by a skilled aesthetician.
Yes, absolutely. Dermaplaning can actually improve the results of a chemical peel by removing the buildup of dead skin cells and allowing the chemical peel to penetrate deeper.
Absolutely. Dermaplaning is safe for all skin tones. Consult with an aesthetician to get case-specific advice and set appropriate expectations for your treatment.

What an amazing place. They offer such an array of ways to enhance your own beauty. The facial that I received from Gina, left my skin looking young, vibrant and super moisturizer!The staff is always so warm and welcoming. The offices are always spotless. I always look forward to going and would definitely recommend to a friend
I had the pleasure of having Brette provide a BBL and Moxi treatment at Luminary in Lindwood. She was very good at explaining everything during the consultation. She made me feel very relaxed and made sure I was aware of everything she was doing during each procedure. I would highly recommend Brette and Luminary Cosmetic
I love Luminary so much!! The staff is so knowledgeable and so friendly. Dr. Saltzburg gave me a full evaluation and treatment plan options that were customized to my specific needs and desires. I started with Dermaplaning and then a Moxi/BBL HERO treatment. The recovery was easy and the results were amazing!! Years of impurities and old dead skin were removed from my face, making way for new, glowing growth. Next I’d love to try a lip filler, but I’ve been really nervous about it. Dr. Saltzburg has taken lots of time to discuss my reservations and to understand exactly what type of results I am looking for. She has really set my mind at ease and I’m excited to give it a try! I absolutely recommend Luminary for all of your aesthetic needs. You will not be disappointed.
I had Halo/BBL performed by Gina and it was a great experience! She talked me through every step of the process, answered all my questions and concerns thoroughly, and she was a pleasure to talk to during the process! Everything was handled professionally and personably and I am loving my new smooth glowing skin! Looking forward to future treatments by Gina!
Gina gave me an amazing facial – skin so smooth and soft. Feeling refreshed! She analyzed my skin and spoke with me about options for skincare and rejuvenation. Very impressed. The space is beautiful- clean and professional. I will be back for facials to brighten and care for my skin.
