Dermaplaning is a method of exfoliation that consists of using a gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Sounds scary, right? It really isn’t, as long as you’re in triained hands, it is a very comfortable, relaxing procedure, with no downtime.
Benefits of Dermaplaning -
Dermaplaning is a favorite in the entertainment industry, specifically among models and actresses. Why? It also eliminates that annoying peach fuzz that cakes up in makeup and can be enhanced by harsh production lighting and high-definition cameras. Dermaplaning removes all the dead skin cells and also the facial hair, leaving the surface very smooth. Dermaplaning also allows for greater penetration of skincare products and creates a flawless canvas for makeup to glide on smoothly. In fact, we often use dermaplaning to help prepare skin for more intrusive procedures such as chemical peels, dermapen, mesotherapy or laser treatments. See our advance facial page for further information.
Dermaplaning is recommended for all skin types except those with acneic skin. If you have deep cystic acne, wait until breakouts are clear before trying this treatment. We can offer advise on treatments and products to help with acne and breakouts.
This is a great treatment if you are pregnant or nursing and want exfoliation without the risk of harsh chemicals absorbing into the blood stream and potentially harming your baby.

There are no side effects and zero downtime. After the treatment, your skin will be highly sensitive to sun exposure and may look slightly pink, so be sure to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher after the treatment.
The treatment will take 30-45 minutes to perform.
There is no need to worry about the hair on your face getting any darker. Since dermaplaning only targets the vellus hair (peachfuzz) the hair will grow back the same size and color. It is physiologically impossible for the hair to grow back thicker and dark, so no need to panic and worry.
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.
Yes for best results we recommend you combine dermaplaning with other treatments. Some of which can include enzyme peels, chemical peels, gauze masks, mesotherapy, skin needling, LED light therapy.
No, not in the slightest. Dermaplaning is a very comfortable, relaxing treatment.
