Dermaplaning in Milwaukee, WI

dermaplaning at Zelko Aesthetics is fast & non-surgical


Dull skin and fine facial hair could be hiding your skin’s true potential.

If you want to brighten skin, remove unsightly facial hair, and create a flawless, flake-free base for makeup, then dermaplaning might be right for you. In Milwaukee, dermaplaning at Zelko Aesthetics is a fast, non-surgical way to gently remove dead skin and hair by shaving it away with a surgical blade. It takes less than 30 minutes and leaves your complexion more radiant and velvety soft to the touch.

What is dermaplaning?

Also called dermablading or the scalpel facial, it is a painless facial skin exfoliation and facial hair removal procedure that shaves the uppermost layer of dead skin and vellus hair off in minutes. After the treatment, your complexion looks noticeably brighter, smoother, and more even in skin tone.

Is dermaplaning painful?


No. It may sound scary since a surgical scalpel is involved, but you can trust there is absolutely no pain or cutting during the procedure. Instead, the sterile scalpel gently passes over the skin to shave the dead skin layer and hair away. Dead skin cells sit on the skin surface and are no longer connected to the blood supply. Therefore, there is no discomfort or bleeding. Many patients find the treatment comfortable and relaxing, in fact.

How do I prepare for dermaplaning?

Avoid waxing, tanning, sunless tanning products, shaving, facial scrubs, chemical skin exfoliation products such as glycolic acid, lactic acid, BHAs such as salicylic acid and vitamin A in the form of retinol or retinoids for at least several days before and after treatment, unless your provider at Zelko Aesthetics says otherwise.

What dermaplaning results can I expect?

Dermaplaning has instant results. Vellus hair and dead skin cells are instantly removed to reveal a more radiant, even-toned, and softer complexion. Once the initial mild redness subsides (if any), you can start enjoying more vibrant, plush skin from Day 1. Dermablading results last approximately 2 to 3 weeks.

Are there any dermablading side effects?


Dermablading has almost no risks or undesirable side effects when performed by a highly trained dermaplaning specialist at Zelko Aesthetics. Founded by Dr. Timothy Zelko, a cosmetic surgeon in Greenfield and Naperville, WI, our Team Members are hand-selected. It is normal for the skin to appear red shortly after treatment; sensitivity and redness subside quickly.

Your Dermaplaning Consultation

Milwaukee Dermaplaning

You will meet with an Aesthetician for a skin exam and discussion of your concerns. If you have skin dullness, an uneven complexion, dry flaky skin, or unwanted hair on your face, then dermablading may be suitable for you. It is ideal for clients that want instant results, no pain during treatment, and no downtime.

In addition, we also offer related treatments such as facial hair waxing and chemical peels that you might consider. Dermaplaning can be safely combined with many other treatments if you wish to multiply the benefits of your treatment for a small price increase. We will help guide you to the appropriate treatment methods to get the results you are looking for, no matter your skin concern.

How much does dermaplaning cost?

At Zelko Aesthetics, the dermaplaning price is $35. With results that last up to 2 to 3 weeks, it’s a small price to pay for skin that looks noticeably fresher and more radiant. Because dermaplaning is so affordable and provides spectacular results, it is a great add-on to facial services and other skin rejuvenation treatments at Zelko Aesthetics.

Does insurance cover dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is not covered by insurance, as it is a cosmetic procedure that helps you look better, rather than correcting any medical skin condition. For patients that are paying out of pocket, we aim to make the cost of dermaplaning more affordable.
