What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves using a sharp scalpel to gently scrape away the top layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face. This process is designed to improve the appearance of the skin by exfoliating and smoothing its surface.

How does Dermaplaning work?

During a dermaplaning treatment, a licensed esthetician will use a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape the surface of your skin at a 45-degree angle. This removes the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair, revealing a smoother, brighter complexion. The treatment is painless and usually takes around 30 minutes to complete.

What are the benefits of Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning has several benefits for the skin, including:

– Exfoliate the skin’s surface to remove dead skin cells and reveal a brighter complexion.

– Smoothing the skin’s surface to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

– Removing vellus hair (peach fuzz) from the face to create a smoother, more even texture.

– Allowing skincare products to penetrate more deeply into the skin for better results.


Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and tones, but may not be suitable for those with active acne, sensitive skin, or certain skin conditions. It is best to consult with a licensed esthetician to determine if dermaplaning is right for you.

Most people benefit from Dermaplaning every 4-6 weeks, depending on the individual's skin type and concerns. Your esthetician can recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific needs.

No, there is no downtime after Dermaplaning. Your skin may be slightly red or sensitive immediately after the treatment, but this should subside within a few hours. You can resume your normal skincare routine and activities immediately after the treatment.
