Dermaplaning is a non invasive method of exfoliation that consists of using a 10 gauge scalpel to gently scrape off the top layer of dulling dead skin cells and fine hair (peach fuzz hair) that can trap excess of oil, in order to reveal a smoother, brighter and even complexion.

Benefits of Dermaplaning

  • No chemicals are applied to your skin
  • Generally takes less than 30 minutes
  • Results are visible immediately after a dermaplaning session
  • Complexion is not swollen or red
  • Can help unclog blackheads and whiteheads
  • Stimulates growth of new skin cells
  • Promotes absorption of skin products you use at home

Note: Facial hair that is removed by dermaplaning does not grow back thicker because it is vellous hair. Vellous hairs are translucent, whitish-colored hairs that always return in the same condition that they originally sprouted. It is physiologically impossible for hair to grow back differently, whether it is facial “fuzz”, eyebrows or underarm hair.
