Dermaplaning is a procedure that exfoliates your skin and gets rid of the dirt and “peach fuzz” on your face by removing the top skin layer. This procedure aims to remove fine wrinkles and deep acne scarring, as well as to make the skin’s surface look smoother and more “polished”. Following the treatment, makeup application is smoother and other skincare products are able to penetrate deeper and thus maximize their effectiveness.
The ideal candidate for Dermaplaning has ageing, dry, rough, or uneven skin tone. Dermaplaning can also help reduce the appearance of shallow acne scars, fine lines and superficial hyperpigmentation.
This treatment is extremely safe when performed by a properly trained skincare professional. Plus, there is no downtime associated with this procedure meaning you can go out right after your procedure if you wish!
Dermaplaning is entirely painless. Although highly unlikely, there are minor risks for cuts on the skin; however, even if this occurs, these cuts are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These scrapes – if occurred – will heal within 24-48 hours. Dermaplaning is entirely painless.

No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.
Hyperkeratosis is a build-up of dead skin cells on the skin’s surface. By removing this initial layer, a peel is able to penetrate deeper into the dermis resulting in more effective treatment. The conjunction of dermaplaning and a skin peel leaves the skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Together, they promote new skin growth and target problems such as ageing, sunspots and environmental damage.
Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days’ (or 3 weeks’) worth of dead skin cells, so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.
