What is Dermaplaning?
When skin rejuvenation treatments, such as facials and chemical peels, are not helping you attain the results you desire, but you aren't interested in lasers and more invasive procedures, you may be a candidate for dermaplaning. Dermaplaning is a cutting-edge cosmetic procedure and facial rejuvenation treatment that smooths your skin by stripping away dead skin cells and fine facial hair for a radiant, youthful look. Also known as dermablading, this procedure is completed with a careful scraping technique with a facial blade. Our talented team is pleased to offer this popular, noninvasive skin treatment at Body Werks Chicago. For more information or to schedule a consultation, give our Chicago, IL office a call today.

"Vanessa was amazing, I thought it would be awkward at first but no, it was the opposite."- Y.P. / Google / Aug 06, 2021
"I booked an appointment back on May 27th which was a Thursday. I knew i was not going to be able to keep my appointment. So i canceled my appointment on Monday before i was scheduled. I asked for my deposit back several times since you had to put it down to reserve an appointment . Nobody never returned my call and my deposit was not returned. It’s now June 13th. I found the staff to be very unprofessional and inconsiderate of my time and money. My recommendation stands is don’t go!! If they treat you like this before being serviced then it only leaves little room for the imagination as to what spirit they’ll work in throughout the process."- V.T. / Facebook / Jun 14, 2021
"The service provided by Vanessa was excellent! I recently had a Vajacial & a sugar Brazilian wax for the first time. I was extremely nervous at first, but she answered all my questions. Vanessa is very knowledgeable about everything which made me very comfortable. I felt like I was talking to one of my friends. I also love the fact all the products they use is all natural. As soon as I walked in the staff was friendly & professional I will be returning for other services soon."- Y.B. / Google / Nov 22, 2020
"Wonderful place to be. Wax, body contouring, and facials all in one. Very professional and friendly staff."- D.P. / Facebook / Nov 20, 2020
What Can I Expect from Dermaplaning?
You may benefit from dermaplaning if you:
- Want something other than chemical peels and facials
- Do not have rosacea
- Have fine facial hair
- Don't have sensitive skin
- Have an uneven skin tone
Completed in our office as an outpatient procedure, dermaplaning is a safe and effective skin rejuvenation procedure. After cleaning the skin, your treatment will begin with a careful scraping of your skin's surface with an exfoliating blade. The technician will make several passes over different parts of your skin similar to that of shaving, removing dead skin cells, scar tissue, and other debris until your face has been evenly treated. The amount of time needed will depend on the areas of your face being addressed. Following your dermaplaning session, you can expect your face to be red for a few days. It is common for some peeling to occur as your skin heals; however, it is important not to scratch or peel any skin off as this could cause scarring. Additionally, you should avoid prolonged exposure to the sun over the following weeks as your skin will be sensitive. You should start to notice results rather quickly since dermaplaning produces softer, smoother skin right away.
Is dermaplaning good for your skin?
Yes! Dermaplaning is a popular skin care treatment because it can help remove built-up debris from the skin's surface. It may also reveal a brighter complexion due to the removal of fine hairs that can make your skin appear dull and grey. Body Werks Chicago provides this procedure to patients as a first step toward a glowing complexion.
Is dermaplaning painful?
Dermaplaning is not painful, but it can be uncomfortable for individuals who have very sensitive skin. Please inform us if you have a skin condition like rosacea that may interfere with successful results. If you feel any discomfort during this process, let our staff know immediately so that we can reduce your anxiety and ensure comfort.
Will my hair grow back thicker?
There is no evidence to show that dermaplaning causes hair to grow back thicker after each treatment. This myth has been repeated so often that it has become widely accepted, but modern evidence suggests otherwise. Please let us know about any concerns you have before you begin this procedure.
