Dermaplaning is a treatment that has gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. Since the treatment removes dead skin cells, skincare products will be able to better penetrate the skin when applied, making them more effective.

The Benefits of Dermaplaning

During the dermaplaning procedure, an exfoliating blade is used to remove dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” (short, soft hair) from the face.
On a daily basis, our skin is exposed to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. These toxins can lead to the upper layer of our skin to appear dull and ultimately age us. Dermaplaning removes those damaged skin cells and helps to create a more youthful experience.


You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience some slight redness that typically resolves within a few days.

It is advised to take extra precautions with sun exposure after a dermaplaning treatment. Sun damage could reverse the effects of dermaplaning, or lead to the formation of pigment on your newly exposed skin cells. It is important to wear sunscreen the weeks following your dermaplaning treatment.

Dermaplaning is a form of manual exfoliation. A surgical, sterile blade is stroked along the skin at an angle to gently “shave off” dead skin cells from the epidermis.

Dermaplaning also temporarily removes the fine vellus hair on the face, leaving a very smooth surface. As with any type of exfoliation, the removal of dead skin cells allows home care products to be more effective, reduces the appearance of fine lines, evens skin tone and assists in reducing milia, closed and open comedones and minor breakouts associated with congested pores.

Your hair will grow back exactly the same color and thickness as it was previously. The structure of the hair follicle remains unchanged.
By removing the dead skin on the surface of the face, dermaplaning prevents it from getting trapped inside your pores causing infection and leading to acne. Since dermaplaning removes dirt and debris, it allows for deeper penetration of serums and acne treatments into your skin which also prevents future acne.
No, the treatment is not painful. It is carefully performed by our certified medical technicians and feels like a slight tickle on your skin.
There is no downtime for this procedure for most clients. Some clients may experience some sensitivity and redness that typically subsides within 24-48 hours.
The number of treatments varies per clients and depends on a variety of factors.


  • Please let your skincare specialist know if you are on any medications (topical and/or oral), have any medical conditions, or are being treated by a physician for any conditions.

  • Wash your face with a gentle, acid free cleanser, tepid water, and avoid topical products that
    contain alpha or beta hydroxy acids, retinols or Retin A for approximately 72 hours or longer. If
    irritation occurs after applying the above products, wait a few more days to allow your skin to
    heal. Under no circumstances should you use a product that abrades the skin within that 72-
    hour period (scrubs), nor should you submerge the treated area in chlorinated pool or hot tub
    for the next 3 to 5 days
  • Avoid sun exposure as much as possible for a minimum of 3 days post treatment. If you must be in the
    sun, apply SPF 30 or greater, reapply often, wear a wide brimmed hat, and seek shade when possible. Be careful of sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily for 2 weeks.
  • Avoid excessive heat 3 days post treatment, i.e. heavy workouts, steam rooms or saunas, etc.

  • No scrubs, polishers, or aggressive brushes should be used for 7 to 14 days.
  • Do apply serums as absorption levels will be elevated
