A method of exfoliation that consists of using a scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells as well as "peach fuzz" in order to reveal a smoother, brighter complexion. Dermaplaning can help with product absorption as well, and is a great addition to facial treatments.


An exfoliating blade is used to remove layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz. Afterwards, your skin’s surface will be smooth, youthful, and more radiant.

Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with acne scars, dull skin, dry skin, sun-damaged skin, and aging skin showing fine lines and wrinkles.

Dermaplaning is safe for most people, with little to no risk of side effects when performed by a licensed professional. This procedure does not require any downtime or recovery, which makes it extremely convienient. 

Dermaplaning is effective by performing a gentle scraping motion across the skin’s surface. With hair removal such as waxing and threading, most people have the idea that all hair removal is painful, but Dermaplaning is entirely painless. There are risks of cuts on the skin, however they are small and very minor as the pressure used for Dermaplaning cannot cause a deep cut. These nicks and scrapes  heal within 24-48 hours.

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.

Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 30-45 minutes and can be performed every 3-4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.
