What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that is performed by using a blade to gently scrape off the top layer of dull and dead skin cells to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. It can be combined with a peel for even more exfoliation. Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry because it also eliminates the peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly.

Who Is It For?
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except for those with active acne. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. As always, also discuss any allergies or skin sensitivities before starting a treatment.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the bloodstream and potentially harming your baby.
What Does The Treatment Feel Like?
Dermaplaning is a painless procedure and can be compared to the sensation of shaving your legs, but in this case, it’s on your face.
First, the aesthetician will cleanse and thoroughly dry your skin. Next, she’ll pull an area of your skin taut with one hand, and use short, swift strokes to scrape off dead skin cells and peach fuzz. The procedure takes about 20 minutes.
Are There Immediate Side Effects?
There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, you will have a flushed appearance for about 1 hour. We do recommend sunscreen every day but especially after treatment.
How Often Should I Have This Performed?
Dermaplaning removes 21 days worth of dead skin cells, so it’s best to allow the skin to complete its rejuvenation cycle before your next treatment.
