What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a safe, effective exfoliating procedure that uses a sterile surgical scalpel to remove the top-most layer of dead skin and soft facial hair. 

Dermaplaning is a remarkable treatment option for people who want to see the following results from their complexion:

·         Smoother, more radiant skin

·         Enhances the luminescence of skin

·         Improves the skin’s texture & tone

·         Removes soft facial hair (peach fuzz) & dead skin

·         Diminishes the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles

·         Reduces the appearance of acne scars

Dermaplaning is not recommended for individuals with acneic skin as is can cause scarring to occur.  If your skin is currently experiencing a breakout, wait for the breakout to fade before the procedure.

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

The dermaplaning procedure is performed by a licensed aesthetician.  Using a surgical-grade fine scalpel, your aesthetician will gently skim the surface of the skin.  The process is quick & pain-free, delivering immediate results.

Post Procedure

You will notice a difference in your skin’s texture and tone immediately. 

Directly following the procedure, you will be able to continue with your daily skin routine. 

Your skin will be sensitive post-procedure, so you should protect your skin with SPF 30 sunscreen or higher to protect against hyperpigmentation.  Include a gentle moisturizer or hyaluronic acid mask in your skincare regiment if you don’t already to help repair your skin and keep it hydrated.

Recovery Time

Dermaplaning has instant results with no downtime. 


Will dermaplaning make my peach fuzz grow back thicker and darker?

No, the procedure does not affect the hair follicles/roots, which is what makes hair grow back in that way.

Does dermaplaning hurt?

It does not hurt.  It is one of the gentlest hair removal procedures.

Does dermaplaning cause acne?

No, but it is an excellent acne remedy.  It removes dead skin & dirt that clogs your pores, allowing the skin to breathe.
