Are you ready to book an Appointment?
A dermaplane utilized a special blade to remove dead skin cells and vellus hair (fine, “peach fuzz” type hair) from the treated skin, leaving your skin ultra-smooth, radiant, and healthy.
What is Dermaplaning?
Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that involves a gentle, precise “shaving” of the skin with a surgical scalpel to remove dead skin. Basically, it’s like shaving your face. It makes skin feel baby soft. Make-up will be easier and more even to apply. Your skin will have a natural glow. All without having to use harsh exfoliators.

What are the benefits of dermaplaning?
You can expect to see smoother skin, no peach fuzz, and brighter-looking skin. Because you’re removing the dead skin cells at the surface, your skincare products will better penetrate your skin when you apply them, making them all the more effective. Make-up will also be easier to apply and glide on more evenly.
How often can Dermaplaning be performed?
Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner actually removes about 2 to 3 weeks’ worth of dead skin cells during the treatment. Allowing a normal skin cycle of approximately 21-30 days is best before repeating the treatment.
What are the side effects of dermaplaning?
In the hands of a professional, dermaplaning is safe for all skin types, especially those with sun damage, fine lines, dry patches, and dull skin. If you have highly reactive, sensitive skin, rosacea, or keratosis pilaris discuss it with your aesthetician, since it might irritate your skin. Same goes for anyone with inflamed acne. Dermaplaning can irritate the acne and worsen existing breakouts.
Is there any downtime?
No, that’s one of the benefits. The skin instantly has a healthier glow and feels amazingly soft. Plus your skincare products are absorbed better and, makeup glides on effortlessly for a flawless finish.
Will the vellus hair grow back thicker?
No, this is physiologically impossible. The soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly – usually in about 4 weeks.
Dermaplaning, waxing, tweezing, or any other depilatory form of hair removal cannot alter the type of hair grown in any given area.
