Exfoliate Dead Skin Cells
And Peach Fuzz

Dermaplaning is a rejuvenating skincare treatment that involves using a sterile surgical scalpel to gently exfoliate the outer layer of your skin. This process effectively removes dead skin cells and fine vellus hair, also known as peach fuzz, leaving your complexion smoother and brighter. By eliminating this layer of buildup, dermaplaning enhances the effectiveness of skincare products and makeup application. It’s a painless procedure with no downtime.

Dermaplaning Treats:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dullness and uneven skin tone
  • Dry, rough skin texture
  • Acne scars and minor blemishes
  • Excess vellus hair (peach fuzz)

How Does Dermaplaning Work?

Dermaplaning works by mechanically exfoliating the skin’s surface using a sterile surgical scalpel. The angled blade gently scrapes away dead skin cells, dirt, and debris while also removing fine vellus hair. This triggers the skin’s natural healing response, stimulating collagen production and promoting cell turnover. Additionally, the removal of the outermost layer of skin allows for better penetration of skincare products, maximizing their effectiveness. Dermaplaning is a safe procedure that yields immediate improvements in skin texture and appearance.

Benefits Of Dermaplaning:

  • Immediate improvement in skin texture and radiance
  • Reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Enhanced penetration and efficacy of skincare products
  • Removal of dead skin cells and vellus hair for smoother complexion
  • Non-invasive and painless procedure with minimal downtime
  • Suitable for most skin types and tones
  • Can be performed regularly for long-term skin health and maintenance

Dermaplaning FAQs

How long does a dermaplaning session take?

A dermaplaning session typically takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and any additional services performed.

Is dermaplaning painful?

No, dermaplaning is typically not painful. Most individuals describe the sensation as similar to the feeling of shaving. However, if you have sensitive skin or are prone to irritation, you may experience mild discomfort during the procedure. Your skincare professional can apply a numbing cream beforehand to minimize any potential discomfort.

Who is a good candidate for dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is suitable for most skin types, including sensitive skin. It is particularly beneficial for individuals with dull or dry skin, uneven texture, and fine lines or wrinkles. However, those with active acne or severe skin conditions may not be ideal candidates for dermaplaning.

How often can dermaplaning be performed?

Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks, depending on your skin’s sensitivity and tolerance. It is important to allow enough time for your skin to recover between treatments. Regular sessions can help maintain the results and keep your skin looking smooth and radiant.

Is there any downtime after dermaplaning?

There is typically no downtime associated with dermaplaning. You may experience slight redness or sensitivity after the procedure, but this subsides within a few hours. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure and harsh skincare products for a few days following the treatment to protect your newly exfoliated skin, but you can resume daily activities immediately.

Can dermaplaning be combined with other skincare treatments?

Yes, dermaplaning can be combined with other skincare treatments, such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion, to enhance their effectiveness.
