Dermaplaning is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure performed to exfoliate and rejuvenate the skin’s surface. It involves using a specialized surgical blade or scalpel to gently scrape away the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (commonly known as “peach fuzz”).

During a dermaplaning session, a trained skincare professional will hold the skin taut and glide the blade at a shallow angle across the skin, usually on the face. This process helps to remove the buildup of dead skin cells, dirt, and debris, revealing a smoother and more radiant complexion.

Dermaplaning Benefits
Benefits of dermaplaning may include:

Exfoliation: Dermaplaning effectively exfoliates the skin, helping to improve its texture and promote cellular turnover. By removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells, it can reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.
Hair removal: Dermaplaning also targets vellus hair, or “peach fuzz,” which can trap oils and debris on the skin’s surface. By eliminating this hair, skincare products can penetrate the skin more effectively.
Instant results: Dermaplaning provides immediate results, leaving the skin smoother, brighter, and more even-toned after just one session.
Non-invasive: Dermaplaning is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure that is suitable for most skin types and tones. It is generally well-tolerated and does not require any downtime.
Hair regrowth: Contrary to a common misconception, dermaplaning does not cause the hair to grow back thicker or darker. The vellus hair will grow back at its normal rate and texture.
Maintenance: To maintain the results of dermaplaning, regular sessions may be recommended, typically every 3 to 4 weeks.
It’s important to note that dermaplaning should be performed only by a licensed professional who has received proper training and has expertise in this procedure.
