If you’re looking for a way to improve the appearance of your skin, dermaplaning might be the solution you’ve been looking for. This treatment can be booked as a stand-alone or add-on to any custom facial. It is designed to remove dead skin cells and peach fuzz, as well as encourage new cell growth to make your complexion look smoother and clearer.
Dermaplaning, a form of manual exfoliation, is a safe and effective skin resurfacing treatment that uses a small, sharp blade to remove the outer layer of skin cells. This treatment removes vellus hair, also known as “peach fuzz.” This exfoliation technique can be used on all skin types and is often used to prep the skin for other treatments, like chemical peels or microdermabrasion.
During a dermaplaning treatment, our aesthetician will hold your skin taut with one hand while using the other hand to hold the blade at a 45-degree angle. They will then make small, sweeping motions across your skin, being careful not to press too hard or go over the same area more than once.
Dermaplaning can be performed on small areas of skin or on the entire face. These can be used alone or in combination with other methods.
Dermaplaning is a type of exfoliation treatment that uses a specialized, manual razor to remove the outermost layers of dead skin cells. Exfoliation and hair removal can leave your skin brighter and smoother. It is considered a safe alternative to chemical peels or lasers with fewer side effects. Other benefits associated with dermaplaning treatments include:

A dermaplaning session typically takes about 30 minutes. During this time, you can expect your aesthetician to thoroughly cleanse your skin and then begin the exfoliation process. Afterward, they will apply a hydrating serum or mask to soothe your skin.
Overall, dermaplaning is a safe and effective way to achieve softer, smoother skin. If you’re looking for a gentle exfoliation treatment that can be tailored to your specific needs, dermaplaning may be right for you!
You don’t need to plan any downtime to recover from a dermaplaning treatment. You may experience redness or feel like your skin is scraped in the two or three days right after the procedure.
After the first session, you should notice an immediate difference, but the best results are achieved after a series of treatments. Typically, a series consists of 6 treatments, followed by 2 or 3 treatments. Optimal results begin to show after 2-3 treatments.

Most of our patients report that this treatment does not hurt. At first, some patients feel uncomfortable with the dermatome instrument or experience a slight tickling sensation. The treatment area may be red and sensitive, but this should pass quickly.
