For Glowing Skin

Dermaplaning is a safe and effective treatment used to exfoliate the skin while removing unwanted facial hair. It can improve the texture and tone of your skin, reduce fine lines, and make your skin look brighter and more radiant. Dermaplaning is also a great way to prepare the skin for other cosmetic treatments, such as chemical peels or laser resurfacing.

What Is Dermaplaning?

Dermaplaning uses a sterile surgical scalpel held at a 45-degree angle and moved across the skin in short, swift strokes to gently scrape off the top layer of dead cells and fine vellus hair, or "peach fuzz," from the face. The procedure is non-invasive and painless and works on all skin types to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation. Dermaplaning also may enhance the effectiveness of skincare products by allowing them to better penetrate your skin so it looks brighter, smoother, and more youthful.

Who Is a Candidate?

The best candidates for dermaplaning are looking to improve the appearance of their skin, reduce the appearance of wrinkles, and improve the texture and tone of the skin. It is a good option for those with dry or rough skin, as it can help remove dead skin cells and promote a more radiant complexion.

Dermaplaning is not recommended for those with active acne or other skin conditions that cause inflammation or irritation. It is also unsuitable for those with a history of keloid scarring or prone to excessive scarring. If you take blood thinning medication or have a bleeding disorder, dermaplaning can increase the risk of bleeding and bruising.

Dermaplaning: What to Expect


The face is thoroughly cleansed to remove makeup, dirt, and oil from the skin’s surface.


Our provider may apply a gentle acid solution to the skin to help loosen dead skin cells and debris.


The treatment uses a sterile surgical scalpel to gently scrape the top layer of dead skin cells and fine facial hair. This process usually takes 30 to 45 minutes. Once completed, the aesthetician or dermatologist will apply a soothing serum or moisturizer to help calm your skin.

After Your Treatment

After a dermaplaning treatment, the skin may be slightly red and sensitive. Avoiding direct sunlight and wearing sunscreen is essential to protect your skin from potentially damaging UV rays.

You will want to wait to apply makeup for the first 24 hours after the treatment to allow your skin to heal properly. Our providers recommend avoiding swimming in chlorinated water and using hot tubs, saunas, or exfoliating products for about a week. Keeping the skin well-hydrated with a gentle moisturizer and avoiding products containing harsh chemicals or fragrances will prevent irritation of the skin.
