Dermaplaning immediately rejuvenates the skin by removing the outermost layer of dead skin cells and vellus hair (peach fuzz). It can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while leaving skin smooth, supple, and vibrant. It can also be used to prep the skin prior to peels and enzyme treatments and to increase the penetration of active ingredients in the treatment room and in your home care routine.


Dermaplaning is the controlled scraping of the skin using a sterile, surgical blade held at a 45 degree angle for the removal of keratinized cells of the outer stratum corneum and fine vellus hair. This soft, fine vellus hair will grow back slowly, and Dermaplaning can be performed every 3 to 4 weeks. Treating the skin in this manner removes about 2 to 3 weeks worth of dead skin cells.


Dermaplaning can be done on any skin type and tone, however it should not be performed on patients with active acne, bleeding disorders, uncontrolled diabetes, cancer, current cold sores, or a history of keloid scars. Consulting with a skin care provider before treatment is recommended.
