Dermaplaning is an advanced procedure that exfoliates the skin, removing up to 2 to 3 weeks worth of rough, dead skin cells and vellus hair, aka peach fuzz allowing the underlying layers to be stimulated to produce collagen and elastin. It uses a small sterile blade and with the skin held taut, swiped in a gentle upward motion. The exfoliation removes the dead skin reducing blemishes and marks and encourages the growth of new, healthy skin cells and can have a positive impact on the skin cell lifecycle.

Dermaplaning is a highly effective way to resurface the skin in a gentle manner that does not damage the skin. It also does not involve the application of chemicals which makes it a great alternative for individuals who have sensitive skin and cannot undergo chemical peels or other chemically based treatments.

30 minutes usually. 45 minutes if you are combining with a chemical peel or other facial upgrade.
No. Dermaplaning does not interfere with the follicular structure of the hair, thus having no effect on hair growth whatsoever.
Unlike terminal hair (think eyebrows), vellus hair has no appearance of a blunt end when shaved. This is often where the “thicker” looking aspect of hair growth comes from – the blunt end created by slicing the follicle.
Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen and elastin fibers, so it is superb as an anti aging treatment. The layer of dead skin cells and facial hair that trap dirt and bacteria are removed, allowing for better product absorption and effectiveness.
Dermaplaning smoothes, tones, tightens, and brightens skin, creating a flawless canvas for makeup application.
Dermaplaning should be received once every 4 weeks (monthly) to achieve optimum anti aging benefits. For removal of facial hair, primarily, every 4-6 weeks is recommended.
Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and recommended for those who want a non-invasive, affordable skin rejuvenation treatment that focuses on quick treatment sessions and no recovery time. Those who want to treat poor skin tone, acne scars, unwanted facial hair, large or clogged pores, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles can achieve great success with dermaplaning treatments.
