What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a simple, safe, and highly effective manual exfoliation procedure. A sterile, surgical scalpel is used to gently “shave” the skin’s surface, removing the most superficial layer of dead skin along with fine, vellus hair (aka peach fuzz).

It is the only procedure that effectively removes that difficult to treat vellus hair, which is not amenable to laser hair removal.  It does not simply shave the fine hair, but actually works at the root level for a more effective removal that should last about a month. Contrary to popular belief, vellus hairs will not grow back thicker or darker.

The procedure can be performed monthly, in less than thirty minutes, with no downtime post-treatment. Dermaplaning is only performed on the face.  It is not meant to be used to shape eyebrows, which are made up of “terminal” (not vellus) hairs. The nose is also avoided.

Physical exfoliation triggers the cell regeneration process and allows products to better penetrate skin. Dermaplaning can also help cleanse the skin by getting rid of excess fine hairs, which can accumulate dirt and oil. Exfoliation of dead cells along with the removal of fine hairs results in healthier, brighter skin that has a smoother look and feel.

Dermaplaning is especially effective on those with dry or rough skin texture and helps to minimize superficial acne scarring or uneven skin tone. It is also beneficial for mature skin, which tends to have a buildup of dead cells as cellular turnover slows down with age.

Dermaplaning is safe for pregnant or lactating clients who cannot have chemical peels, which are contraindicated in pregnancy because they penetrate skin to act at the cellular level.
