Dermaplaning

What is dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning is a non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that promotes radiant, glowing skin by removing unwanted dead skin cells and vellus facial hair.

Dermaplaning results are immediate and provide a terrific alternative to microdermabrasion or chemical peels.


How does dermaplaning work?

Dermaplaning is a maximum exfoliation method where a sterile blade is stroked along the skin at a 45 degree angle, removing the uppermost layer of dead skin cells and revealing a smoother, brighter complexion.

What is the dermaplaning service like?

Sound a little scary? It really isn’t, so long as you’re in the hands of a trained professional. Dermaplaning treatments are safe and painless, with most stating the service feels like gentle scratching.


How long does dermaplaning take?

Dermaplaning takes anywhere between 45 minutes to 1 hour and can be performed every 4 weeks. The treatment itself removes approximately 21 days worth of dead skin so it is important to let your skin rejuvenate before your next appointment.

Why is dermaplaning good for skin?

Dermaplaning promotes cellular turnover and increases collagen and elastin fibers, so it is superb as an anti aging treatment. The layer of dead skin cells and facial hair that trap dirt and bacteria are removed, allowing for better product absorption and effectiveness.

Dermaplaning smoothes, tones, tightens, and brightens skin, creating a flawless canvas for makeup application.


Can I go back to work after dermaplaning?

Yes! There is no downtime with dermaplaning and you may resume normal activities as soon as you leave the salon. At most, you may experience some temporary redness that subsides quickly.

Will my hair grow back thicker if I shave my face?

No. There are different types of hair that grow on the body; vellus hair and terminal hair. Vellus hair is found on most areas of the body except palms, soles, lips and genital areas, whereas terminal hairs are found on the scalp, underarms and pubic region. The soft and fine vellus hair grows back at the same rate and texture.


How often should I get dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning should be received once every 4 weeks (monthly) to achieve optimum anti aging benefits. For removal of facial hair, primarily, every 4-6 weeks is recommended.

How do I know if dermaplaning is right for me?


Dermaplaning is safe for all skin types and recommended for those who want a non-invasive, affordable skin rejuvenation treatment that focuses on quick treatment sessions and no recovery time. Those who want to treat poor skin tone, acne scars, unwanted facial hair, large or clogged pores, dry skin, fine lines and wrinkles can achieve great success with dermaplaning treatments.

Who should not get dermaplaning?

You should not receive dermaplaning if you are allergic to nickel, have undergone Accutane treatments within the last 6 months, have numerous raised lesions on the skin or inflamed acne.
