What is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a procedure to exfoliate the skin, eliminating dirt, dead skin cells, and vellus hair (peach fuzz). Exfoliating the skin can leave your skin smoother and brighter and may also soften the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and hyperpigmentation. During treatment, a special medical scalpel is dragged across the skin at a 45-degree angle. The entire face is treated, which usually takes about 30 minutes to complete. Following dermaplaning, there is no downtime, though the skin may be temporarily red or swollen. Dermaplaning can be added to any facial or done as a solo procedure as requested.

Who is a Candidate?

Healthy individuals who are looking to improve the look, tone, texture, and feel of their skin can often benefit from facial and dermaplaning services. However, you may not be a good candidate if you have an active infection at the treatment site, have certain skin conditions such as psoriasis or rosacea, or are currently sunburnt.
