When it comes to creating a great skincare routine, Precision Skin Institute has a new trick in the bag. As one of the best dermatologists in the Fort Lauderdale area, we are always finding new ways to help you look and feel your best.

Hand over your razors, boys, because ladies, it’s time to shave your faces.

Yes, you read that correctly. But we’re not talking about a Bic razor and a Barber’s chair. We’re talking about dermaplaning, a method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel-like tool to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells. The point? 

To help you reveal a smoother, brighter complexion – no shaving cream necessary.

And you know what else dermaplaning is good for? Facial hair removal. Every last bit of it.

In addition to that, dermaplaning helps to improve the appearance of dull skin as well as mild hyperpigmentation. We can’t lie, dermaplaning in Fort Lauderdale has become all the rage. According to an ELLE Magazine article from just last month, the rest of the country has followed suit and now dermaplaning is making its way into cosmetic and medical skincare centers from sea to shining sea.  


This double-duty shave is not your average skincare treatment. Not only will it have you glowing in minutes, your skin will look and feel softer than ever. It’s like a miracle for your skin’s texture. The soft, often invisible hair on your face tends to trap debris and oils resulting in a dull look. Once the dermplaning scalpel makes its way over your face, your first thought will be, I can’t wait to do this again.”

Here’s how the magic happens:

At Precision Skin Institute, we like to pair dermaplaning with a facial or light chemical peel. First, the skin is prepped and cleaned with antiseptic and a mild-exfolliant. Then the forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck are very gently shaved with the scalpel. The aesthetician will pull your skin taut in order to ensure that every nook and cranny of your face makes contact with the blade and that no spots are left uncovered. A major bonus will be an improvement in the appearance of dull skin as well as mild hyperpigmentation.

Following the process, your skin will be slight more sensitive. Since you have just lost layers of dead of skin cells, it’s important to treat your skin gently in the days following a dermaplaning treatment. While your makeup will look amazing now that your skin’s texture has greatly improved – don’t slack on makeup removal or moisturizing!
