Dermaplaning is a treatment that uses a specialized blade to remove dead skin cells and fine vellus hair. It is considered a physical form of exfoliation and leaves the skin soft, smooth, and bright. The glow you get with dermaplaning is unrivaled from any other treatment. Dermaplaning removes 3 layers of dead skin cells, achieving that incredible glow and glazed doughnut-looking skin.

Q & A

How often can you Dermaplane?

Dermaplaning is most often performed every 4 weeks. It's best scheduled in a series of 3-6 treatments.

what are the key benefits of Dermaplaning?

  • Dermaplane removes dead skin cells on the surface of the skin.
  • It also removes facial hair or peach fuzz, leaving the skin fresh, ultra-smooth, and glowing.
  • Skincare products can penetrate more easily.
  • Makeup application goes on smoother and looks more flawless.
  • When combined with a chemical peel, dermaplaning can further help lift dry, dead skin cells and treat skin concerns, as it also helps in reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation and may help lessen the appearance of skin scars due to acne/breakouts.
  • Fine lines may begin to look subtle and softer, and it helps even skin texture.

Can dermaplaning be done on all skin types?

Yes, all skins can benefit from dermaplaning. Avoid performing dermaplaning on active acne/breakouts. Clients with melanin-rich skin tones should pre-treat their skin 2 weeks prior with brightening products such as tyrosinase inhibitors to reduce the risk of PIH.

Will dermaplaning make hair grow back thicker?

No. Dermaplaning cannot physically alter the type of hair grown. The fine vellus hair will grow back slowly, usually in about 4 weeks. We do not Dermaplane over terminal hair.

How is dermaplaning different from shaving your face at home?

Firstly, when you come in for a professional dermaplane service, we exfoliate down to the 3rd layer of the skin called the Stratum Corneum. This means the exfoliation benefit is 3 times greater than an at-home shaver, which takes off the first layer only. At-home shavers provide light exfoliation, whereas in-clinic dermaplaning is a little more corrective.

The difference will always be the professional grade of treatment that you will receive by a trained professional with more advanced tools and additional techniques. For example, in a professional setting, it would be dermaplaning, a peel, and light therapy with a masque in a 60-minute service. Dermaplaning performed professionally can help to potentially remove more layers of skin, giving faster, better results, while at-home Dermaplaning generally fails to provide all its amazing benefits, especially when performed with a simple guarded blade/tool. Professionals are also trained to use the blade at correct angles and with professional-only products. While some consumers may notice minor improvements in the skin with doing at-home Dermaplaning, for advanced results, we recommend going the professional route.
