What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic treatment wherein the clinician uses a blade to scrape off the “peach fuzz” and dead skin cells from your skin’s surface. As such, dermaplaning is an advanced exfoliation process that removes the uppermost layer of the skin, mostly consisting of dead skin cells, pigmented spots, scars, pockmarks, and soft hairs. By removing all the textural irregularities, the treatment leaves you with smoother and glowing skin.

A single dermaplaning session removes around 2 to 3 weeks of dead skin cells and impurities from your skin’s surface. The blade is held carefully at a 45-degree angle to ensure it removes the surface layer of your skin without deeper penetration or skin damage. Furthermore, the treatment only removes the peach fuzz (vellus hair), so there’s no risk of the hair growing back darker.

Dermaplaning Candidates

Dermaplaning is ideal for candidates with tired, dull, or worn skin due to accumulated skin damage and the presence of dead skin cells. Since dermaplaning doesn’t use any external chemicals or minerals, it’s safe for everyone, and there’s no risk of allergies. However, in some cases, dermaplaning may not be deemed suitable for candidates with excessively oily, inflamed, or acne-prone skin.

Dermaplaning Treatment Overview


Dermaplaning is a quick and painless procedure that can be a beneficial treatment add-on to virtually any of our other aesthetic offerings. The procedure is painless and comfortable, involving nothing more than a slight scraping sensation. Your aesthetician will scrape the surface of your skin with a special dermaplaning scalpel at a 45-degree angle. Once the exfoliation is complete, the clinician applies a soothing cream or mask to ensure you have a comfortable post-treatment experience.


Your skin will appear brighter immediately after the treatment, but it usually takes a few days for the results to become evident. You’ll be advised to avoid sun exposure for a few days or to wear sunscreen whenever you go out. The treatment results are temporary and your skin may again accumulate impurities, debris, and dead skin cells in a few weeks. Your provider will recommend the ideal treatment frequency to maintain your results.

Dermaplaning is a simple procedure without risks or complications. You may experience slight redness or irritation for a few hours or days, similar to a slight sunburn, but you can immediately resume all your daily activities.

Scheduling Your Consultation

During your initial consultation, your aesthetician will carefully examine your facial skin, review your medical history, and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine if you can truly benefit from dermaplaning. We only recommend dermaplaning if it’s completely safe and capable of addressing your unique skin concerns. If not, we recommend other skin treatments better suited to your skin concerns and will describe what you can expect from that treatment.
