Dermaplaning is an innovative approach to removing dead skin cells.

Dermaplaning is a cosmetic procedure that removes the top layers of your skin. The process removes fine wrinkles, deep acne, and scarring and makes the skin’s surface look smooth.


It is safe for most people, with little risk of side effects. This procedure doesn’t require any recovery downtime, making it extremely convenient. Dermatologists say this treatment is effective for people looking to make their skin appear more youthful, smooth, and bright.


Dermaplaning can be used for any skin type and anyone with:


  • Acne scars

  • Dull skin

  • Dry skin

  • Sun-damaged skin

  • Fine wrinkles



How Does It Work?


Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellous facial hair – also known as “peach fuzz.” If you look at the tool used for these treatments, you may notice it looks like a razor you would use on your body hair.


The basic concept is the same as shaving. Aiming a sterile blade at a 45-degree angle and dragging it slowly across the skin removes dead cells, scar tissue, and other debris that may make your skin’s surface look uneven.


Your skin is exposed daily to harsh environmental toxins, irritants, and sun damage. This can cause the top layer of your skin to appear dull and make you look aged. Dermaplaning clears away those damaged skin cells, so newer skin cells are what you see when you look in the mirror. In technical terms, this is responsible for removing keratinized cells on the outer stratum corneum and fine vellous hair! As a result of this process, dermaplaning is also a highly effective procedure for minimizing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars while leaving the skin smooth, supple and vibrant.


Are There Any Side-Effects?


Dermaplaning is a low-risk procedure. However, side effects may include slight redness in your face in the hours after getting the treatment. Some people develop whiteheads on their skin the day or two after your treatment. Infection and scarring are rare after dermaplaning but can occur in rare instances. If you have any worries following your procedure, our therapists will always be on hand to put your mind at rest.
